The drains in the plumbing system of homes are there for one purpose; to provide passage for liquids. However, sometimes, these drains can become clogged, keeping the water from passing freely out of your home.
While food waste and debris can result in a clogged kitchen drain, more often than not, it is because people make the mistake of pouring grease from leftover food into the drain. This can easily stick in the drain and cause leftover food and other debris to stick to the pipe, which, over time, results in the drain getting clogged.
To keep your drains from getting clogged, it’s best to always dispose of any grease of fat run-off from meals in the garbage.
Preventing a Flood (in Your Basement)
If you live in a flood-prone area, then installing a backwater valve is a good idea. This valve will prevent any sewage from backing up into your basement when the main is overloaded. Also, make sure that everyone at home knows where the main water shutoff valve is located. So, that you can cut off the water supply during an emergency, home renovations, or before going on vacation, to be on the safe side.
