Where Can You Turn for Residential Plumbing Services?

If you have used Gwyn Services for your home’s electrical needs or your heating and air conditioning systems, you already know that we are responsive to your calls and give you the highest quality products and most professional service available.

But, you may not realize that we provide exceptional residential plumbing services, too. Even if it’s during the night or over the weekend, our professionals provide around-the-clock plumbing repairs in addition to our scheduled maintenance appointments.

Meanwhile, there are some helpful habits you can form that will keep your residential plumbing in good working order:

  1. Don’t use chemical-based products to repair a clogged drain in your house. These strong mixtures can erode pipes. Most often, they don’t remove the whole clog anyway, which means the stoppage will happen again and you’ll use the chemical cleaner again and this cycle will eat away at the pipes, eventually causing costly leaks. It’s more efficient, and more economical in the long run, to let a professional plumber snake the line and completely unplug it.
  2. Prevent clog repairs in the first place by using screens over the drains in showers and tubs to catch falling hair, and by scraping food and residue into the trash before rinsing or washing dirty dishes. And never, ever pour grease down a residential It’s only liquid while it’s hot, so pour it into a sealable container to cool off and then put it in the trash.
  3. Lower your home’s water pressure. High water pressure puts a great amount of stress on your pipes, which stresses the joints and valves, which increases the chance of creating leaks. You can measure your water pressure with a hose bib gauge from the local hardware store for less than ten dollars. Just attach it to an outdoor spigot and turn it on – normal pressure should be between 40 and 85 psi. If yours is more, we can install a pressure reducer for you.
  4. Keep your home’s system clear with preventive maintenance. If you have municipal sewers, hire us to snake your system every few years. If you are on a septic system, we should dump the tank for you every three-to-five years.

Quick Unclogging Trick

If the drain at your residence is clogged, before you call us to check the plumbing you can try a simple trick to unclog it. Pour a half-cup of salt down the drain followed by a pot of boiling water. Then, flush it with very hot water until the drain runs clear. Of course, if that doesn’t work, we will be happy to come out and service the problem for you.
