You maybe do not give too much importance to the plumbing network in your houses; that tangle of water pipes the crisscross each other. But it is important that you spare a thought for them as regarding maintenance. If you give a little attention to your plumbing, you can save a lot of money on repairs. Avoiding Chemical Drain Cleaners The most common home problem is clogged drains, and it’s easy to go for a quick fix solution in the form of chemical cleaning products. However these chemicals do more than good in the long run. They have the potency to erode iron cast drain pipes. They also have the problem of not removing the clog entirely. So the problem will come up again, requiring more use of the chemical solvent, leading to more erosion of the pipes. It is far better to hire a plumber to snake the drain and remove the clog physically, that would cost you about $75 to $150.

Prevention of future clogging Clogs are not just pure nuisances, backed up water also leads to more pressure on the drainpipes. And this tends to stress them and shorten the life span. It is best to avoid the plug ups and be careful about what goes into the drain. This translates to keeping the food scraps out of kitchen drains, the hair out of bathroom drains and everything but sewage and toilet paper out of bathroom drains. Grease is liquid only when it is hot. As soon as it comes into contact with cold water, it starts to solidify. It’s akin to an artery that is getting clogged.

Reduction of pressure It might be great to have high water pressure when you’re taking a shower, but it stresses the pipes and also leads to chances of leaks. This will lessen the lifespan of the pipes, according to plumbing experts. The water pressure can be measured by a hose bib gauge, which you can pick up from the hardware store for $10. Normal pressure is between 40 and 85 psi. If your measurement is above this, you should consider asking a plumber to reduce the water pressure.

Softening the water If the water tends to have a high mineral content, it is known as hard water and it can shorten the plumbing’s lifespan. Naturally occurring minerals like magnesium and calcium tend to build up inside the pipes, restricting the flow and increasing the water pressure. You need to install a water softener in order to keep the balance.
