Home plumbing may seem like a mystery, but there are some very simple steps you can take to preserve it and keep it in better condition.

This quick advice will help you keep your plumbing in better condition.

Do not use odour removing tablets or liquids in your toilet. While they are good at removing smells, they are corrosive to the silicone parts in your plumbing. These tablets will slowly break your toilet down and cause leaks.

Lengthen the life of your garbage disposal by cleaning it. Run the disposal with cherry pips, lemon rinds and dish soap on a regular basis to keep it working properly.

Invest in quality showerheads rather than buying cheaper ones. This will help to reduce the cost of energy usage and water consumption.

Check your pipes for leaks regularly, and investigate any damp that you find. Catching problems early could save you a vast amount of money.
