Most Common Mistakes
A lot of Lake Forest home and business owners make simple common mistakes that can shorten the lifespan of their pipes, and cause them to have a lot of repeated issues.

Not using the proper tools, or having the necessary knowledge and expertise can cause a lot of damage to your plumbing system, and cost you a lot more money in repairs than you initially planned on spending.

What Can I Do to Avoid This?
Preventing plumbing clogs can be a lot easier than you might think. There are many simple little tools, tricks, and hacks you can do yourself to keep things running smoother, longer. Installing hair catchers in your bathroom tub or shoes drain can help catch hair from going down your drain and building up. Installing more modern toilets can help you eliminate clogs in your toilet and sewer lines. Avoid flushing non septic safe toilet tissue or feminen hygiene products down your toilet. Routine inspect and maintain your faucets. Check that washers, o rings, handles, nuts and bolts are all free from damage and working properly. Check your garbage disposal and clean it regularly. Avoid items like cooking oil from going down your drain. Cooking oil can easily attach itself to the inside of your pipes and catch any debris going down, causing it to build up and clog. Avoid food and organic waste from going down your drains. Even if you have a garbage disposal, your pipes are at risk for clogging. To maintain the integrity of your plumbing system for as long as possible, you should always avoid any forien contaminants, oils, food, and hair from going into your drains. This will help to keep them free of debris. Baking soda, vinegar and hot water can also be used to clean the inside of your pipes every couple of weeks. This is a much safer alternative to those commercial drain cleaners that are filled with abrasive chemicals that can chew through your plumbing.
