Plumbing care and help by Roto-Rooter of Tampa

Do you find plumbing to be difficult to manage? Are those leaky faucets racking up costs on your water bill each month? Tired of leaky pipes causing mold and other water damage in your home? Plumbing is a system that takes a daily beating. We rely on it all the time to bring water, take away waste, and work without problem. Because of the nature of water, it causes problems in a lot of different ways. If it starts to leak, it can ruin a faucet head. If it gets on the floor, it can ruin wood and carpet. When a frozen pipe bursts in the winter, you will quickly have flooding and damages to take care of. Roto-Rooter is proud to be the trusted name in plumbing. We have millions of happy customers who have benefited from our years of experience, many great products, excellent service, and amazing well-trained technicians. Since 1935, we have seen just about everything. Here are some tips for better Tampa plumbing care.

Drains are an integral part of any plumbing system. All your sinks, showers, and toilets rely on clear drainpipes to carry used water and waste away from your house. Clogs and blockages are extremely common and can cause some messy problems if not taken care of properly. While clogs are bound to happen no matter how careful you are, there are plenty of things you can do beforehand to prevent them, tricks for minimizing them, and products and tools you can use to completely get rid of them.

  • Boiling water. Surprisingly, pouring a few cups of boiling water down the drain every week does wonders for clog prevention. Dirt, grime, and greases cling to drain walls and boiling water can strip them away easily. For added strength, using a bit of baking soda and vinegar along with the water will do away with many chemical based plumbing products.
  • Plunger. You can use a plunger on more than just a toilet. If used correctly, a right sized plunger can help push clogs through a line or even pull garbage up that is too big to pass through.
  • Roto-Rooter Pipe Shield is a great product to use after removing clogs. Especially after a professional drain cleaning, Pipe Shield will go in there and coat your drain walls and keep your pipes slick so more junk doesn't stick.
