Plumbing Upgrades Can Help Prevent Disasters
If there’s a plumbing emergency, we can help. Our fully-licensed journeymen plumbers are always on call–24-hours a day, seven days a week, including holidays, to help with whatever household plumbing task is needed.
Of course at 3 Mountains Plumbing our ideal goal is to get to know our customers before a plumbing emergency occurs. We like our customers to know and feel comfortable with us first so that they are confident we can fix the problem in an event of an emergency.
The holidays are always a busy time for the plumbing industry. More household guests means more stress on plumbing systems. We are here today to share with you some preventative measures and maintenance you can perform to ease and perhaps even prevent holiday plumbing woes.
1. Upgrade Your Garbage Disposal
A higher horsepower garbage disposal is the way to go. Of course, even then, you have to be careful about what you put down your drain, but the higher the horsepower the less likely your garbage disposal is to fail and back up your kitchen sink. 3 Mountains Plumbing is fully stocked with a variety of garbage disposal options.
2. Know What NOT to Toss Into the Garbage Disposal
Be mindful of what you toss down the drain. The worst culprits include:
- stringy foods
Also, be sure to dispose of waste gradually. Do not shove everything down the drain and then turn on the disposal. This may overwhelm the system causing a major back-up.
3. Install a New Toilet Bowl
We recommend 1.28 gallon toilet bowls made by Toto Ultra Max. These highly efficient systems use less water to do more work. They are better for the environment and save you money. Installing a new toilet is one of the more affordable bathroom remodeling investments you can make for your home.
4. Install a Tankless Water Heater
Tankless water heaters are another terrific home investment. These come in handy when hosting guests because they never run out of hot water. No matter how many showers are consecutively taken, there will always be an endless stream of hot water for everyone.
