Preventing Pipes From Freezing

In order to prevent any pipes within your home from freezing, you should never let the home temperature get below freezing. Always insulate pipes exposed to elements. But, be advised that your pipes may freeze if the surrounding temperature near those pipes is less than freezing. At best, it can take time for them to thaw and for you to be able to have running water. The other option is the pipes may burst, which would result in significant repair costs and a mess to clean up.

Pump your septic tank about once every five years, to make sure it is working well. This will keep sediment from hanging out in your tank and eventually causing there to be a backup in your home. Although it could cost a good deal of money to pump out your septic tank, it will cost a lot more having to clean sewage backup or having to fix or replace a septic tank.

Clogged Toilet?

If your toilet happens to be clogged, and the plunger is not working, you can pour a bucket of hot water down the toilet, but be sure to pour it from a height that is waist level or above so you do not flood the bathroom. Once the water is lower, do this again.

Leaky Toilet?

You should regularly check for water damage to your bathroom floor caused by your toilet in order to save money and further complications. Feel the floor around the toilet and check to see if the floor is soft, molded, chipping, etc. Straddle your toilet by rocking it from foot to foot to see if there’s any weakening or softness on the floor below you. You can save a lot if you catch these issue sooner.
