Keeping Your Plumbing Fixtures In Good Working Order

Today, many homes have extra toilets, tubs, sinks, and showers that may not get any use. Maintaining these items is especially important for many reasons:
  • If unnoticed, leaks and cracks in plumbing fixtures around your home could lead to costly repairs, in addition to higher than necessary water bills.
  • Flush unused toilets at least once a week to keep all parts in good working order. Leaving the commode dormant for extended periods of time can result in leakage from dried out seals, and sticking from other parts. Flushing periodically also minimizes toilet bowl discoloration.
  • Running water through tubs, showers, and sinks on occasion will keep the seals in working order, just like the toilet. Doing this at least once a month will ensure that you have longevity from your plumbing products.
  • By flushing water down all of the drains, you're preventing sewer gases from stinking up your home. Sewer gas typically smells like rotten eggs and can lead to nausea, eye irritation, and in some cases death.
