Things every home owner should know

Plumbing is serious work, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t fun or interesting facts that are part of the industry. At Royal Flush Plumbing Adelaide, we like to show our lighter side every once in a while.

1. Dishwasher
Automatic dishwashers are another appliance that should last a decade or more. However, you often can save money by buying a newer energy-efficient unit.

2. Malfunctioning Disposal

This can be a messy headache for homeowners. Here are several tips to keep your unit in good working order.
When grinding food stuff, follow with a lot of water. Otherwise it will solidify and clog the drainbefore it gets to the main sewer. Do not put foods that are high in fiber such as potato peels. You can freshen up and clean deposits in your garbage disposal by grinding an ice cube or a small amount of lemon or orange peels.

3. Faucets

Replacing a cartridge, washer or other internal component can repair leaking faucets. Tarnishes and nicks are harder to fix.Good faucets will give at least 5 or more years of trouble-free operation. With the hard water we have in San Diego, corrosion is a big problem in repairing faucets because the hard water deposits will eat away at the metal.
