Plumbing Myths Debunked

There are plenty of myths that surround the plumbing industry. However, many of these myths have little truth to them. Luckily, we are here to debunk those myths and set the record straight.

Myth 1: A Leaky Faucet Is Insignificant

Some homeowners believe that a leaky faucet is a small inconvenience. However, each little drip of water is costing you and the environment alike. According to the EPA, water leaks waster 1 trillion gallons of water each year. That’s why it is important to have leaky faucets fixed as soon as possible.

Myth 2: It’s Okay To Flush Flushable Wipes
Many people see no harm in flushing flushable wipes. After all, it’s in the name! However, these “flushable” wipes are not biodegradable like toilet paper. In the end, they could end up clogging your pipes. To prevent plumbing problems, dispose of flushable wipes in the trash can.

Myth 3: Toilet Bowl Tablets Will Clean The Toilet
Most toilet bowl cleaners contain bleach. Leaving a toilet bowl tablet in the toilet for an extended period of time will end up doing more harm than good. To prevent damage, only leave the tablet in the tank for 10 minutes.
