Following is some advice to guide you when that occurs.

Noisy Pipes?

Paying Your Plumber

Don’t pay a plumber midway through the job. In some cases, you have to make a down payment prior to the first day of work. This is okay to do; however, don’t let your plumber talk you into paying the entire cost of a job before he’s finished, and never pay the whole cost before he’s even begun. You want to know the plumber has fulfilled all his requirements as promised in the agreement before he gets paid.

Using The Right Tools

Knowing which tools to use and how to operate them is essential to any aspiring plumber. Read all of the equipment’s manuals and read up as much as you can on plumbing projects. Think ahead and learn everything you can before tackling a plumbing repair project. If you make things worse rather than better, you’ll have to pay expensive plumbing fees to fix the problems.

Overflow Holes

Ensure that the overflow holes in your sinks are not clogged. These holes come into use if the skin overflows. Things can get problematic if they are clogged. Clean the overflow holes when you can, like when doing periodic checks for various other repairs and problems.

Cleaning Your Pipes

If you want to try a pipe cleaner because your pipes are obstructed, it is recommended you use a cleaner that is enzyme based. These cleaners use natural bacteria, which turns sludge into liquid and cleans your pipes. Enzyme cleaners are considered one of the best the market has.


The worst thing you can do is to be unprepared when a plumbing problem arises. If you own your own home, you should know some basic plumbing skills, and have the tools ready to go. The tips you learned here will assist you in dealing with whatever plumbing problems you encounter in the future.

    I have noticed that there are really noisy pipes in my new house. I didn’t realize that this was an easy fix. It makes sense though that by anchoring exposed pipes, you can decrease the amount of noise your plumbing system makes. Thanks for sharing this.

    I definitely agree that you should be using the right tools for your plumbing maintenance. As you say, it’s important for you to make sure things get done right so that you don’t have to pay for more expensive repairs in the future. That being said, I would think that just hiring a professional who already has the right tools and experience would help you to avoid any costly repairs or mistakes.

    Great little article there, I’ve been using a ton of different cleaners but have been looking for a greener solution especially doing all the pipe cleaning services we do up in fort McMurray. I’ll definitely give that bio-clean product a try and see how well it works on our jobs. Thanks for the heads up 🙂

    Thanks for the help. My wife and I are looking for a plumber to address some issues for us. I think that we need to have the pipes cleaned, as you addressed. How often is it necessary to have a plumber clean the pipes?
