Every house, office or a complex needs to have an efficient plumbing system and issues are bound to occur. Some problems arise due to plumbing faults but some are made by the silly mistakes of the homeowners. Here are some of the common mistakes made by homeowners which require the plumber services.
Excessive use of drain cleaner
Drain cleaners are very effective clearing our blockages and keeping the drain clean only if they are used on the right kind of blockage in the right amount. Mostly people excessively use the chemical drain cleaners on drains which are not commonly used and worsen the state of blockages. In some cases, the drain itself is corroded. Calling the plumbers becomes a necessity after some time and it means extra work for the plumber.
Damaging the plumbing supply pipes
Plumbing pipes are hidden behind the walls and floor to give the aesthetic appeal to the home. People start DIY tasks by using an electric drill or a hammer and accidentally damage the hidden pipes going on the walls. Therefore, you must also check before starting up a project for the pipes and plumbing stem otherwise you will get sprayed with cold water coming out of the supply pipes.
Overloading the Garbage Disposal
A garbage disposal is present in almost all homes of Sydney and it is specifically designed to get rid of food waste. It houses a motor with spinning metal teeth which crunch the food scraps into small pieces and send them down the drain. But overloading the garbage disposal and putting fibrous food, peels, shells and beans down the disposal can even block your disposal and even break it.
Therefore, you should use the disposal properly and clean it after every wash.
Hoses attached to faucets in winter
If a hose is left attached to the faucet in the open during the freezing winter month, it can cause damaging effects. The hose will be frozen and may even become brittle and break. But the faucet it is attached to, may freeze and lead to freezing of the pipes attached to the faucet.
So, in winter this type of silly mistakes should not be done or else it will cost you a hefty bill from the plumber services.
Septic Tank contamination
The septic tank has waste-eating bacteria present in it, which effectively eats up the waste and keeps the septic tank in order. If you are using some harmful agents like anti-bacterial soaps, drain cleaners, bleach and paints can kill these bacteria and lead to a full and overflowing septic tank. Thus, these chemicals should be used only in a limit.
These are some of the problems for which plumbers services Sydney are needed throughout the city.
