Leaky Pipes Getting You Down? Avoid Major Plumbing Disasters With These Helpful Tips, Honolulu, Hawaii

When you're ready to start the day, nothing is more frustrating than trying to turn on your faucet and finding out that you have no water! The plumbing system in your home can be finicky at times, especially if you're dealing with clogged drains, or leaky and broken pipes. To avoid causing serious damage, Fast Rooter Plumbing provides reliable and efficient repair service for your home’s plumbing system. Rest assured that you'll always have a warm shower in the morning!

While staying vigilant of the potential warning signs is important, here are a few preventive steps you can take to prevent toilet clogs, clogged drains, and other home plumbing nightmares:

  • Know Where Your Pipes Are: If you are conducting a home repair, or even just pounding a nail to hang a picture, you can easily puncture a copper or plastic supply pipe in your wall. Buy a stud sensor that also detects pipes and wiring to prevent accidents.
  • Don’t Over Tighten: A small leak in a pipe can usually be taken care of by simply tightening the bolt. However, it is important not to over tighten the pipes together. In many cases, after bringing the parts together, hand-tightening the bolt is more than enough to keep them in place. Over tightening with a wrench can weaken the bolts and cause the pipes to burst or come apart with increased water flow.
  • Maintain Your Septic System: Don’t bother with additives; a properly designed septic system will last for decades. Additives reduce pumping intervals, which can actually increase the chances of pipe clogs. Contact your septic tank company to figure out how often your tank needs to be pumped and schedule regular service to avoid backup.
