The best plumbers in Grover Beach are here to share facts you need to know behind common plumbing myths! Here we go…

Lemons can clean garbage disposals.

NOT QUITE. While running a lemon down the garbage disposal will improve the smell of your kitchen sink, it won’t actually disinfect or clean the garbage disposal itself. The best way to clean your garbage is to turn it off, disconnect it, and spray a simple cleaning solution (mild soap and warm water) on to the disposal. After a few minutes, scrub the disposal with a cleaning brush and that’ll do the trick! (Friendly reminder, do not put eggshells, celery, or banana peel down the garbage disposal.)

You can flush anything down the toilet.

FALSE. Flushing anything beyond toilet paper could lead to clogs and serious plumbing issues! Read our recent blog post to learn why.

A leaky faucet is no big deal.

NOPE. Even the smallest water drip can be problematic. A leaky faucet wastes both resources and money on your monthly water bill. How much exactly? According to the EPA, a single leak can waste 10,000 gallons of water a year in one household. That’s a whole lot. Just think of the equivalent of over 250 loads of laundry! The drip can irreversibly stain your sink, faucet, and fixtures too. A leak can also be an indicator of a deeper clog or larger problem. If you hear or see a leak, act fast and call the best plumbers in Grover Beach.

Plumbing problems can wait, right?

WRONG. Plumbing requires regular maintenance to stay in tip-top shape and prevent more costly problems.
