We know, plumbing issues are a nightmare. The good news is some of them can be fixed by you, YES you! Below are a few tips on how to maintain a healthy plumbing system, along with tips on how to fix things when your plumbing goes awry.

  1. Do you have a clogged toilet? DON’T PANIC! If your toilet becomes clogged just let it sit. Don’t plunge, don’t call us, just wait. The matter in the toilet will become softer after sitting for a few hours, this will help the toilet to unclog itself. Once you’ve let it sit for a few hours try flushing the toilet again.
  2. Keep a grease cleaning product on hand. Periodically use it in the kitchen drain to help clean out the excess grease that has built up over time.
  3. Put a strainer in each tub and shower in your home. This will catch all of the hair before it clogs up your bathroom drain. After each shower empty the hair out of the strainer.
  4. DO NOT put banana peels, corn husks, celery, or other fibrous foods in the garbage disposal. It will just clog the system, and cause you a major headache.

If all else fails, just call The Polite Plumber at 973-398-0875. We won’t ask how it happened!
