Plumbing Tips for 2021

With a new year finally here, it’s time to leave your bad habits in the past. C. Lee Services, the leading local plumber in Akron, OH, encourages you to take better care of your plumbing system. Here are a few important plumbing tips for 2021.

Insulate Your Pipes

If you haven’t insulated your pipes yet, it’s not too late to do so. When temperatures drop, you’ll appreciate the extra peace of mind. Every winter, dozens of homes in the area encounter frozen pipes. This is a problem that can leave your household without running water. Frozen pipes can also burst, which requires emergency plumbing services. 

Don’t Treat Your Toilet Like a Trash Can

Far too many families treat their toilet like a trash can. Cotton balls, paper towels, and personal hygiene products can all lead to a messy sewer backup. Even wipes advertised as being “flushable” can clog your bathroom drain. To further reduce your risk of encountering unexpected plumbing repairs, switch to one-ply toilet paper.

Have Your Water Heater Regularly Serviced

It’s important to have your home’s water heater routinely serviced by a plumbing company. Unfortunately, many homeowners fail to do so. Over time, an excessive amount of sediment can build up inside the unit. This will eventually cause performance issues. You also need to have your unit inspected for potential problems. Remember, a faulty pressure relief valve could cause an explosion.

Update Your Plumbing Fixtures

If you want to save water and lower your monthly utility bills, contact your local plumbing company to update your home’s plumbing fixtures. Low-flow faucets and shower heads are far more efficient.

Have Your Drains Professionally Cleaned

Many people are shocked by the amount of gunk in their pipes. Getting your drains professionally cleaned will reduce the likelihood of a clog and help prevent the need for regular plumbing services.

When in need of reliable plumbing solutions, contact C. Lee Services today.

Do I Have to Be Home? We typically request that our customers, or an adult at the very least are home to grant us access to the pipes as needed, but they do not need to be home for the entirety of our visit on their property while repairs are being finished.

Will I Need To Move Furniture? Normally we won’t require our customers to move furniture or household items, but if there are a lot of items blocking access to the pipes, we will need to move some of them out of the way.

How Long Will You Need To Fix My Pipes? The time needed to finish our work is will be defined based on the damage we find in the pipes, and repairs can be as short as a few hours or a couple of days depending on what is required of our team.

When Do I Pay For Your Services? Customers will pay us for our repair and cleaning services after we finish our work on their property. In addition, we offer options for financing as needed.
