These are the top plumbing errors that you need to avoid.
Tossing Trash in the Bathroom
While most homeowners will use common sense to not throw large or random objects down the toilet, you might be surprised by the items our plumbers find in a clogged sewer line.
We found two of the most serious offenders:
- Paper towels These should not be left anywhere except the garbage can
- Female hygiene products are not flushable. Long Beach Plumber is required to clear the clog.
- Premium toilet paper – While it may be nice for your behind, it can cause clogs more frequently than your neighbor who uses the “bargain” brand.
Do Not Prepare Pipes for Freezing Temperatures during the Winter
Be prepared to take preventative action if your pipes freeze.
Both the hot and cold taps should be left slightly open. This will cause any faucets that are affected to turn on when it drops below 32 degrees. To prevent freezing, you should turn off the water supply to your home while you are away on vacation.
Price Shopping for Long Beach Plumbers
Long Beach homeowners don’t have the luxury of unexpected plumber visits. However, it is important to shop around for the best price. Surprise visits from a plumber are not something that homeowners in Long Beach, CA can afford.
Low-priced companies often have lower qualifications and therefore higher prices. Poor workmanship can cause more costly problems.
Locate a licensed Long Beach plumber that does great work at a fair price.
Repairs for “Small Problems”
Although a minor leak may seem insignificant, it could indicate a larger problem. A visit to your licensed Long Beach plumber will often prevent major damages and costly repairs.
