Read your water bill

It is always a good idea to monitor your water bill regularly. Most people just look at the “amount due” and forget the rest of the bill. Look it over and compare the previous months usage to the current month’s usage to check for any differences. That can be the best indication of a leak that you might not know about.

Chemical solutions may not be the best thing when unclogging your sink

Clogs happen. Everyone has experienced them in one way or another. Unclogging solutions are extremely handy, however, they can potentially erode your pipes, and possibly cause future problems. Whenever possible, try to avoid those chemical solutions and try using a drain snake instead.

Never pour grease down your sink

Grease can be harmful to pipes if it hardens inside the trap and cause back ups. If you think diluting grease with hot water and degreaser dish soap, helps, it doesn't. The best thing for grease disposal is to put it in a container such as a old coffee can and let it harden before you throw it away.

Be careful when planting trees or shrubs

Planting trees and shrubs are great, if you are looking to add some shade to help your home cool down in these hot summer months. Always be careful of trees and shrubs that may have invasive roots. Trees and shrubs with invasive roots can cause problems with irrigation pipes and even septic tanks. It is always a smart move to ask what is best to plant before doing so to avoid these issues.
