Whether you’re renovating your current home or moving into a fixer-upper house, plumbing will certainly be on your to-do list. It’s an exciting time. However, plumbing mistakes are commonplace, though many are easily avoidable. When it comes to household plumbing, we always recommend professional service. You receive high-quality craftsmanship at an unbeatable price, without the chance of a mistake!

Common Plumbing Mistakes

Unless you’re industry-trained to handle plumbing repairs, it’s usually best to call a professional. You’ll avoid costly mistakes!

Mistake #1: Before winter is on the way, your home should be well-prepared, including the plumbing system. The heating system will provide protection for indoor pipes. Outdoors, however, is another story altogether. Your plumbing is quite susceptible to freezing, even in a mild climate. Temperatures will nose-dive, and an exposed pipe could lead to bursting or leaks throughout the house. Do not leave exterior pipes exposed.

Mistake #2: A toilet is designed to handle human waste and toilet paper. That is all. But you’d be surprised at how many homeowners flush trash, feminine hygiene products, and even the occasional toy down the drain. Never flush anything else down the drain. These objects tend to accumulate in the septic tank or pipes, leading to backflow and clogs.

Mistake #3: Leaving the water on during plumbing repairs is a surefire way to flood your home. Whenever you attempt a repair, turn off the water. Switching off the main valve should take care of all water in the house. However, check the localized valves, too. Many homeowners miss such valves and wind up with water damage, and potential flooding.
