How to avoid a drain cleaning or repair

 

Lucien Rizio, Vero Beach Plumber

When in doubt if something should go down the drain, toss it in the trash!

Never pour grease down your drain!  Grease solidifies when it cools and will solidify inside your plumbing and cause blockages.  Collect grease in a spare container, wait for it to solidify, then dispose of it in the trash.

Your garbage disposal is not a turkey, don’t stuff it. Don’t use it as a trashcan.

Always run with cold water before starting the disposal, during disposing and keep it running for a bit after turning off the disposal.  That will allow the ground up food particles to flush through the pipes.

Make sure all food scraps are scraped off plates before rinsing dishes.  Excess waste down the drain/disposal will cause backups. Excess food on dishes going in the the dishwasher can prevent proper drainage and cause smells in your dishwasher.

Keep the area around your sink and disposal clear.  The vibration from the disposal can cause kitchen utensils to slip into the disposal and cause it to stop completely.  This also happens with storage units surrounding the toilet, items can and do fall into toilets and cause major blockages.

Avoid leaving paper towels in bathrooms. If toilet paper supplies run empty, guests may reach for paper towels instead, which can stop up toilets.

Don’t offer to host large gatherings if your sewage system tends to run slow. The volume of additional guests can strain your system and cause bathroom backups. There’s no quicker way to ruin a holiday dinner than having a main line backup in your home.

Here is a list of what not to put down your disposal:

  • Pastas or rice- they expand in the water and can clog your drain.
  • Celery, carrots, corn husks, onion skins, artichokes and other stringy or fibrous vegetables
  • Potatoes or skins- the starches will turn into a thick paste and may cause blades to stick
  • Bones
  • Egg shells
  • Coffee grounds-won’t hurt the disposal, but will accumulate in drain and pipes and cause a blockage.

Hole in water line leads to extensive well pump damage.

 

We were called on Friday evening for a house on the Indian River that was having pump issues.  All of the sudden they didn’t have any water to shower for their Friday night out!

Upon first assessment it was found that the pump had been running for an extended period and had gotten too hot and melted the plastic fitting in the pump.   (First problem…we don’t use plastic fitting in pumps for this very reason)

After getting the first pump repaired we noticed the second pump was getting air from somewhere, but how??  That led us to the well…

The homeowner was having their dock/seawall moved.  The worker for that company had accidentally jack hammered a hole in the water line.  The worker then turned off the well and didn’t notify the homeowner of the issue. The worker believed the pipe he had hit was one from an old sprinkler system, yet he turned off the well.   All the while, 2 days, the homeowner was unaware his well had been turned off and he was not aware his well pumps were running continuously trying to pull water.  The homeowner had enough water in his aerator to last him and was never aware his well had been turned off.

A simple 5 minute repair at the moment it happened turned into a 10-12 hour repair on the weekend in excess of $1500.00.

2 burnt out well pumps, a water line full of sand, a weekend full of repairs, 2 missed date nights and an unhappy customer could’ve been avoided easily.

Tip for Home Sellers

Order your own property inspection in advance.

Once you have entered an agreement to sell your home, your buyer will almost certainly get a home inspection of the systems and components of your home, including the heating, cooling, plumbing and electrical system, as well as the structural components.  So be prepared for the your buyer to come back to you with the inspection in hand to either renegotiate your sales price, or to ask you to fix items of your home prior to closing the sale.

Plumber Vero Beach - IRC PlumbingAt the point in the process where this happens, you have possibly entered an agreement to purchase another home.  To avoid costly delays, you may be forced to have repair work done in a hurry which is almost always more expensive.  To avoid this headache, a seller can order their own proactive home inspection and then repair the items that will otherwise pop up on the buyer’s home-inspection report in the most cost effective way. Simple fixes such as cleaning downspouts, repairing flashing and aiming sprinklers properly can avoid unnecessary renegotiation.

If you decide to follow our advice and you need a great home inspector, you can’t do better than John Vetter and Sons.  Call my friend Jason at 772 696 3347 and tell him Lucien sent you.
