4 Practical Residential Plumbing Tips

4 Practical Residential Plumbing Tips | DIY Plumbing | Scoop.it
Manage Stress With Basic Residential Plumbing Knowledge Whether you like it or not, leaky pipes, malfunctioning toilet and clogged sinks are a part of life’s obstacles.
theplumbinginfo's insight:

If your home is quite old already and the drain does not positively respond to various chemicals and plunging, then this us your cue to snake the pipes. Snaking is the method of cleaning the pipes which is performed from the roof through the duct pipes. To do this, you will need to rent a snake unit from a local equipment rental company. You must be aware that this process would require some muscle to push down the snake into the vents. The drain clean outs, which are located at ground level, also need to be “snaked out”. If you are not up to this challenge, you can simply hire a licensed plumber to do the job and shell out around $250.
