Built up hair can actually clog drains. You can stop this by using a screen or drain cover that is designed to keep hair out of your drain and pipes. It is much easier to remove the hair from a screen than it is to get it out of a pipe. One costly plumbing repair is frozen pipes. Normally, you will be able to prevent this issue. The first thing you should do is ensure your outside pipes are thoroughly wrapped or insulated. Once the temperature starts to drop, disconnect your hoses after you have drained them out, and make sure the outside faucet is turned off. You can save a bunch on your plumbing bills this way. Fix low water pressure by cleaning out the aerator to clean out sediment buildup. After removing the aerator, use an old toothbrush with some vinegar on it to clean the sediment off. Rinse off the aerator then reassemble and reattach to the faucet. More information about Hewitt Emergency Plumbing Contractor.
By installing an energy-efficient shower head that might cost a few dollars, you could save at least $100 a year per person who showers in your house. Water that drains back into your dishwasher is likely due to an improper sink hook up. The hose going from the dishwasher to the sink needs to angle uphill before going back downhill to prevent water from both being mixed. Always buy a high quality fixture if you are going to replace your shower head. There are some who think that low price is all that matters when buying fixtures for the bathroom. The issue with that is they're less tough and can break.
