Common Plumbing Myths
3 Common Plumbing Myths
The professional plumbers of Above & Beyond Plumbing Services are not only here to make sure you have a Keller TX plumber you can depend on, we also want to help you sort fact from fiction when it comes to taking good care of your home’s plumbing. Check our list below before you add citrus peels or hand soap to your plumbing system.
1. Your System is Fine as Long as Your Drain is Draining
While you might not think you have to call a Grapevine TX plumber if items are going down the drain of your garbage disposal, you could still have a plumbing problem you can’t detect. The best way to tell whether or not your drain is clogged is to see if it’s draining slower than usual. There could also be bits of waste collecting in your waste pipe. If you’re ever in doubt, give us a call.
2. Citrus Peels Are Great for Cleaning Disposals
Lemons and oranges smell great, but let them smell great somewhere other than in your garbage disposal. Chopping up citrus peels can cause the acid in them to damage the metal parts of your disposal, which can lead to unnecessary repairs later on.
3. Running Hot Water Down the Disposal is Good for Flushing Waste
You can run hot water down your garbage disposal all you want while attempting to grind up those egg shells and banana peels, but you might find yourself calling a Southlake TX plumber afterwards to take care of that clog. It’s best that you think before putting anything down your disposal and that you break things up into smaller chunks before mixing them with water and sending them down the disposal. If you’re ever in doubt as to whether you should put something down the disposal, dispose of it the old fashioned way.
