Tonight as the clock strikes midnight, we’ll be heading into the New Year of 2016! Whether you’re celebrating with family and friends, or spending a quiet evening at home, one thing everyone will be doing is making their new year's resolutions!
Many homeowners will be taking initiatives to better care for themselves, their family and their homes. This should include plumbing!
Ensuring that your plumbing functions better in 2016 than ever before is easy! We’ve put together a list of plumbing resolutions that you can put to good use this new year!
1. Be sweet to your garbage disposer!
There are definitely rules about what can actually go into your disposer without causing damage in the future. This year, know what’s disposer-worthy and what isn’t. Protecting your kitchen plumbing can save you money and hassle!
2. Use less water!
Although you might not realize it, it’s easy to scale back on water usage on a daily basis. Even something as simple as turning the water off while brushing your teeth can save up to 3,000 gallons of water per year. You’ll notice a difference in your utility bill and maybe even feel the accomplishment conserving resources!
3. Change things up!
When you change up the decor in your home, it brings a fresh feeling to everything! Your bathroom is no different! Change the shower curtain, sink fixtures and maybe even upgrade your toilet to a high efficiency model!
4. Face the flush!
Face it, your toilet isn’t a garbage can! Flushing things like hair, tissues, wet wipes, q-tips and hygiene products is a clog waiting to happen. Trust us when we say, it’s worth the extra step to toss it in the trash can. Toilet backups are the worst!
5. Keep those pipes toasty!
Take these tips and run with them! We’ve got plenty more where that came from! If you find yourself in need of a professional plumber to help you handle a plumbing disaster in the upcoming year, you know who to call! We wish you a fabulous and happy new year, from all of us at F.H. Furr!
