Don’t Drop the Ball on Peace of Mind

Four Resolutions to Make This Year Plumb Perfect

You’re not the only one who deserves a fresh start this year. From HVAC units in Tampa, FL, to hot water heaters in Trinity, FL, comfort systems across Florida do, too.

To help you get in the flow of taking better care of your home, here are plumbing resolutions to consider.

1. Quit Treating Your Toilet Like a Trashcan

There are trashcans in bathrooms for a reason. Some things cannot and should not be flushed down the toilet, such as Q-tips, hair, tissues, wet wipes, paper towels, feminine hygiene products and more. If these objects make their way down your drain, eventually, you’ll be faced with a messy and costly disaster.

2. Ring in Smarter Water Usage

If you think the earth has an endless supply of water, think again. H2O is a limited resource. That’s why, this year, be more conscientious with your water usage. Choosing to scale back on how much water you use on a daily basis is a huge help to the environment and also cuts down on your water bill.

As you may know, taking shorter showers, turning the water off while you’re brushing your teeth and waiting until the dishwasher or washing machine is full before running it are a few ways to conserve water. But were you aware that it’s important to fix leaky faucets right away? When it comes to leaky fixtures, one drip is a big drop. In fact, one drip of water per second drops 2,082 gallons of water a year. Luckily, we offer swift plumbing repairs to ensure you don’t drop the ball by wasting water.

3. Leave Bad Garbage Disposal Practices in 2018

Your garbage disposal plays a major role in preventing food waste clogs from forming in your pipes. That is, of course, if you use your disposal properly.

This year, Cornerstone Pros challenges you to dispose of bad garbage disposal practices. This includes no longer throwing just anything in your disposal. Grease, oil, pasta, chicken bones, potato skins, eggshells and lettuce are a few examples of waste that you should never throw in your disposal. Here are some other important rules:

  • Cut waste into small pieces
  • Dispose of waste slowly rather than all at once
  • Run cold water while the disposal is in use
  • Run the disposal and water long enough to ensure all waste is properly ground up and to prevent clogs

4. Stay Tapped Into Your Plumbing

From addressing plumbing problems quickly to professionally cleaning your drains, our team at Cornerstone Pros is here to help you get a handle on your plumbing. With our extensive line of plumbing services, we address both minor and major plumbing problems.

When it comes to major plumbing issues such as house repiping in Tampa, FL, it’s important to resolve the matter quickly. Look out for signs that indicate your pipes need to be replaced. If you notice any of the following, contact us immediately:
