Six Easy Ways for Maintenance of Sewerage Drainage Pipes

by Bappaditta Jana share market adviser

Many people have experienced a sewage line obstruction, which can result in problems such as a leaking faucet, a clogged toilet, a broken pipe, or a busted water heater. The following are some sewer pipe and fittings maintenance guidelines that you must follow apart from going for the regular AMC plumbing services -

Tip 1 - Regardless of whether or not you have a problem, do not dispose of food down the kitchen drain. Food waste is heavier than other garbage that is generally disposed of through sewerage pipes, and it does not move as easily out of or through the line, causing it to clog. Fill a garbage can with as much food waste as possible. The following should not be thrown from the kitchen drain line -

·       Fibrous foods like potato peel

·       Coffee grounds

·       Eggshells      

·       Starchy foods

Tip 2 – Dental floss, rubber bands, twist ties, hair, and other small things should not be flushed into sewerage systems. These rigid materials might become tangled in the line and cause a blockage and can even be a problem for the fire protection services. Baby wipes, tampons, sanitary pads, diapers, extra-thick toilet paper, and other items that are otherwise labelled as flushable should not be flushed down the toilet because they can tangle up in the sewer system.

Tip 3 - Flush your plumbing system once a month as a routine. All you have to do is fill all of the water holding devices, such as the bathtub, sink, and washing machine, with cold water and then drain them all at the same time. Make sure to flush all of the toilets while you're at it. It's a practical, short-term answer that comes at no expense.

Tip 4 - Check your water pressure on a regular basis to help manage what comes out of your showerheads and faucets. You can use a gauge to check your water pressure to make sure it's at safe levels. You can also install a pressure regulator to maintain the desired water pressure.

Tip 5 - Baking soda mixed with vinegar is a traditional cleaning solution that many people use to clean their drainage pipes. When these two ingredients are combined, a frothy chemical reaction occurs, which helps scrape away grease that might create clogs. Pour a glass of boiling hot water down the drain, then pour baking soda mixed with water and vinegar down the drain. Wait 10 minutes after the chemical reaction has occurred before pouring another glass of hot boiling water.

Examine your home's plumbing on a regular basis for signs of brittleness, leaks, and cracks that could lead to a problem.
