Plumbing is an essential part of everyday life. It doesn’t just provide comfort and convenience. It also supports good health and hygiene, preventing disease. After all, without properly maintained and functioning plumbing, septic tanks would back up, dishes and laundry would go unwashed, and showers would be ice cold. And who wants that?! We know our customers don’t, which is why we’re committed to providing exemplary service and sharing vital information.
To help our customers get amazing performance from their plumbing and keep even the oldest of pipes in excellent condition, we’ve literally shared a year’s-worth of information. Our gift to you this holiday season is simple: a condensed, handy list of the most important tips we’ve shared this year.
Don’t treat your garbage disposal like garbage. The garbage disposal is one of the kitchen’s most convenient features. But just because it’s called a garbage disposal doesn’t mean you should treat it like garbage. Certain things should never go into a disposal.
Don’t ignore leaks. That drip, drip, drip from the kitchen faucet is easy to ignore when life is hectic. But what about the giant water bill that is likely to follow it? A leaky faucet or running toilet typically wastes enough water to fill an average swimming pool within 10 days. Fix small leaks before they become big problems!
Maintenance is the key to longevity. A septic tank’s life expectancy could be as much as 40 years, but only if cared for properly. Performing routine maintenance is critical to keep it working efficiently and preventing future problems.
Turn to an expert. If you broke a bone and needed to have it reset, would you turn to a doctor without experience or credentials, or one whose skills gave you confidence? The same concept applies when you have a plumbing emergency. When it comes to plumbing problems, it’s always best to seek licensed plumbing experts. We’re always available for you. At Raider Rooter, we genuinely care about our customers. It’s why we’ve been in business since 1978 and why we continuously reinvest in our company with quality staff, exceptional equipment, and first-rate products. Let us put our expertise to work for you. Happy Holidays!
