As a homeowner, you like to make sure that all the features and installations in your home are in a good condition. Plumbing is one of the aspects that needs regular maintenance.  But plumbing pipes are largely concealed behind walls or under the floor. This makes it difficult to carry out a visual examination to determine whether there are any issues in them.

The best way to make sure that all the systems are working as they should and that there is no deterioration or damage is to call in professionals like us at Mr. Splash Plumbing for regular maintenance.

Plumbing Tips

In addition, we recommend that homeowners follow these basic plumbing maintenance tips:


  • The best way to prevent drain clogs is to pour about half a cup of baking soda into the drain and follow it up with a cupful of hot water. Do this once a week for the kitchen and bathroom drains to keep them free of clogs.
  • If you find that there is hardly any or no water coming from the faucet, make sure that the valve under the sink is in the ‘on’ position. If that’s fine the problem may be caused by a clogged aerator. This small mesh-like part is fitted to the mouth of the faucet and is removable. Unscrew the end of the faucet, remove the aerator, clean it with a brush and reposition it. This should solve the water flow problem.
  • If your garbage disposal is blocked due to food particles and grease, put some ice cubes and eggshells into it. Run it and then pour some cold water into the disposal. This can help clear minor blockages.
