10 New Year’s Resolutions for Your Home’s Plumbing

At Cass Plumbing we believe that New Year’s resolutions are a great opportunity to develop new habits, new ideas, and new beginnings. At Cass Plumbing, the biggest thing we try to focus on each year is how we can better help and serve the communities throughout the Greater Tampa region by providing the best response times, highest quality plumbing service and the latest plumbing technology. Part of our goal to be a better Tampa plumbing service includes providing better direction and advice to help the people in our community take care of their own plumbing. With this thought in mind, we’ve put together this list of ten plumbing new year’s resolutions to help you to best take care of your plumbing in 2021.

1. Don’t ignore little plumbing problems

A leaking faucet, pooling around a toilet, or weird banging sounds from pipes can all be the small signs of bigger problems. When it comes to plumbing, most problems aren’t a big deal… until they are.

When plumbing problems are a big deal, they can cost a lot of money and do a lot of damage. Cut them off at the head and address them as soon as you notice them. Addressing them can be as easy as simply picking up the phone and calling Cass Plumbing at 813-265-9200. Calling us when you first spot a plumbing problem can end up saving you tens of thousands of dollars.

2. Keep your pipes cozy

Pipe insulation is a necessity that many homeowners don’t think about until it’s too late. Even in the warmer climate of Tampa, Florida, making sure your pipes have insulating sleeves in case of especially cold winters can be a small investment that saves you a big headache down the line.

3. Treat your garbage disposal more kindly

Remember that garbage disposals aren’t garbage cans. Don’t put coffee grounds, fibrous vegetables, bones, pits, or other items that can damage the blades down the disposal. Never pour oils or grease down your disposal either, because once it cools, it will solidify. That will be bad. Be nice to your garbage disposal and it’ll be nice to you.

4. Be more eco-friendly

Did you know that just turning off the water in the sink when you brush your teeth can save thousands of gallons of water a year? Do the world (and your wallet!) a favor by paying more attention to the amount of water you use.

5. Give your water heater the attention it deserves

Water heaters are easy to forget about because you barely ever see them. Make sure you get your water heater properly flushed with the help of a professional at least once per year.

6. Pay attention to your water quality

Have you noticed that your skin, hair, or hands have gotten dry or cracked? Maybe the water in your home is too hard and you could benefit from installing a whole-home water filtration system.

7. Stop treating your toilet like a trash can

Toilets aren’t made to handle anything other than… the stuff that’s supposed to go down toilets. Never flush toiletries or garbage. Try putting a trash can right next to your toilet instead, just in case you’re ever tempted.

8. Invest in a plumbing inspection

Have a plumbing technician from Cass Plumbing out to your home this year to give everything a once over. We can clear your drains and let you know if there are any concerns you should pay attention to. Simple visits from Cass Plumbing won’t cost a lot and they can help you avoid otherwise unseen plumbing trouble down the road.

9. Get some drain guards

A few dollars spent now will save you a big headache down the line. Drain guards are non-intrusive, cheap, and they can help you keep clog-causers from sliding down your drain.

10. Know the Best Tampa plumbing company to call in case of a plumbing emergency

Always keep the telephone number of Cass Plumbing (813-265-9200) in your cell phone and posted by in your home, by your telephone.
