Remember, there are lots of things a homeowner or property manager can do to ensure that plumbing systems remain operational and undamaged for years. Follow these steps and it's very likely that you won't need any plumbing repairs in the near future:
Know Your System. No one knows their home better than the actual homeowner. So when you're hosting family or out of town guests, always be aware as to the amount of water that is being used. If you are hooked up to a septic system this becomes even more important. With guests comes increased water usage, and with increased water usage comes the possibility of clogs, failing drains, and burst pipes. Take the time to make sure your water usage doesn't overwhelm your plumbing system when hosting large numbers of guests for an extended period of time.
Don't Flush Your Trash! Material like plastic, papers, and metal items are commonly flushed down the toilet. Remember, your toilet is not a trash can, so be sure to not treat it as such. Foreign objects, even those you think are safe to flush, can actually form blockages in a pipe system that can lead to backed up plumbing fixtures and slow drainage.
Grease Is Bad. We aren't talking about the movie either! Don't dump grease down your drains or down the toilet. Grease solidifies and over time can block your pipes. This will prevent correct operation and cause you a serious headache. Additionally, many municipal water treatment facilities are not designed to handle grease in any form.
