For whatever reason, there are quite a few plumbing myths floating around. This could be due to the idea that a handyperson (not an expert) should be able to fix just about anything around the house with a bit of elbow grease. But this is simply not true. There are qualified plumbers in Berwick and other areas for a very good reason – you need professionals to get the best result. Any plumbers Berwick wide and beyond will tell you that they’ve seen DIY jobs go terribly wrong before. Just as you shouldn’t ask anyone but a doctor to give you medicine when you have something wrong with your body, you also shouldn’t ask just anyone for advice on your pipes. Read on to learn of three of the biggest plumbing myths to watch out for.
While this may be true on a superficial level, a drain could still be working but working at a slower pace without you noticing. These are the kinds of things plumbers in Berwick are trained to look out for. A slow draining pipe could lead to other problems further down the line. If you do notice your sink and shower draining slowly, make sure you call a professional plumber in Berwick or your local area.
Using harsh chemicals may be one way to get rid of clogs in drains, but it’s definitely not the best way, as any plumbers from Berwick will tell you. This is because while the harsh chemicals work on the clog, they can also eat away at your pipes, potentially causing corrosion.
People flushing things other than toilet paper down the toilet is a pet peeve for just about all plumbers in Berwick and everywhere else. Flushable wipes are a case in point. Yes, they are meant to be flushable, but that doesn’t mean that they have a good effect on your pipes. They don’t biodegrade quickly, unlike toilet paper, and they can lead to clogs and blockages. If it’s not human waste or toilet paper, you shouldn’t flush it down.
