Best Practices for Seasonal Plumbing Issues

October 13. 2017 Seasonal Plumbing Issues

Did you know that you can prepare for seasonal plumbing issues based on seasons of the year? Here in East Texas, Spring time can bring unpleasant odors through the drains, Fall is the time to prevent frozen pipes, and in the Winter certain types of holiday food can cause drain clogs.

Garbage Disposal Tips

Make sure the disposal is running when you put food into it. Don’t wait until it’s full before turning it on. Run cold water through disposal to avoid overheating the motor. Never pour fats or cooking oils down drains, they solidify in pipes. Rice, pasta, and other starchy side dishes expand with water, which can block the flow of water through drains.

Water Saving Tips

In a typical home, more than 9000 gallons of water are wasted while running the faucet waiting for hot water. As much as 15% of your annual water heating costs can be wasted heating this extra 9000 gallons!

A tank-less water heater can reduce the amount of gas consumed to heat water by up to 35%

A low flow toilet can save you up top 18000 gallons of water a year.
