How to avoid plumbing mistakes
1. Don’t assume you can fix your own plumbing problem
Many people think they can fix their own plumbing problem by following a few DIY videos online. But if you have any doubts about your ability to do so, then call a professional plumber instead of taking the risk of causing more damage or costing yourself even more money. It’s not worth it!
2. Always use the right tools for the job – don’t try to do it with a wrench or pliers
If you’ve ever tried to use a wrench to drive in a nail, then you know that it just doesn’t work. Wrenches are designed for tightening nuts and bolts, not driving nails. There are other tools out there that are made specifically for driving nails into wood or metal – hammers, clamps, screws…the list goes on. So whenever I need something done around the house or at my job site, I always make sure to have the right tool with me before starting so I don’t have any setbacks along the way!
3. Be careful when using chemicals near water sources, such as toilets and sinks
A lot of people don’t think about the dangers that are present when chemicals are used near water sources. The most common example is toilet bowl cleaner, which can cause severe burns if it is spilled in or around a toilet with running water. When using any type of chemical, make sure to be mindful of your surroundings and what could happen if something were to go wrong.
4. Avoid putting grease down drains because it will clog them up
Grease is a pain to clean up and it will stick to the pipes in your home. The grease will start to clog your drain, making it difficult for water to get through. One way you can avoid this problem is by only pouring fats and oils into a container that has been placed on a cooking surface away from all other food preparation areas.
5. If you’re not sure what is wrong with your toilet, call an expert!

Safety is the main concern when it comes to children and plumbing. Children are curious, which makes them prone to getting in trouble even when they know better. There’s also the danger of toxic substances like lead seeping into their system if they ingest anything that gets on their hands while playing in or around pipes. But there are ways for parents to protect children from unsafe work being done on their home plumbing system. *Tips for protecting kids from dangerous work being done on a home plumbing system*
