There are things that we know to be true. But not everything we hear is true. There are tons of myths out there, especially when it comes to your plumbing. To help you get the facts straight, we have busted a list of the most common plumbing myths.
1. "Don't worry, it's just a drip"
Never underestimate a leaky faucet. One little trickle could be a sign of a significant problem somewhere else in the pipes.
On top of that, leaks cost you money in the long-run. Have you recently experienced an increase in your water bill? Check for leaks!
The Fix: Give us a call. Pipe Masters, Inc. will have your home at peak efficiency in no time.
2. "When Life Gives You Lemons, Toss Them in Your Disposal"
Contrary to popular belief, throwing a lemon in your garbage disposal doesn’t clean it. It will give you a burst of lemony-fresh air, but that’s only temporary.
The Fix: Use white vinegar to clean, disinfect, and deodorize your disposal.
3. "Hot Water Melts Grease Clogs"
This myth is a half-truth. Hot water does melt the grease and wash it down your drain. The problem is that it then cools, solidifies, and builds up farther down your pipes.
The Fix: Use cold water instead. It solidifies the grease and allows it to float safely down the sewer.
