Happy Holidays: Our Four Top Plumbing Tips of 2023

Posted on December 5, 2023

As 2023 draws to a close, the Raider Rooter family wants to extend our warm holiday wishes. This time of year is always full of excitement but can also get a little chaotic. Now more than ever, we’re grateful for the opportunity to share our expertise and plumbing insights with you. From safeguarding your pipes against pesticides to determining when not to DIY, join us in revisiting our year’s top tips and tricks.

DIY dangers you can’t flush away:

Despite the allure of cost-effectiveness, there are specific DIY plumbing projects that should be avoided at all costs, including installing a new toilet, replacing a water heater, fixing a clogged sewer line, installing a shower, and installing a sink. The complications of these tasks, from potential leaks and health hazards to gas lines and electrical risks, cannot be emphasized enough.

Invest in your septic sense:

Septic tanks play a critical yet often overlooked role in our daily lives. These underground wastewater treatment systems are nearly indestructible, lasting up to 30 years. But only with proper maintenance, including mindful water usage, responsible flushing habits, avoiding harsh chemicals, protecting the drainage field, and scheduling regular professional maintenance to prevent potential issues from escalating.

Banish bugs without bugging your pipes:

Nobody wants to start their day dealing with unwelcome pests. But before reaching for pesticides, consider the potential harm they may inflict on your plumbing. Harsh chemicals can damage septic systems and drainage fields, disrupting the delicate microbial balance crucial for proper functioning.

Thank you for being part of the Raider Rooter community. Our commitment to providing quality service and products has been the cornerstone of our business since 1978. Whether it’s for emergency repairs, routine maintenance, or plumbing questions, we are grateful you entrust your plumbing needs to us.

All of us at Raider Rooter wish you a joyful and stress-free holiday. May your pipes flow smoothly, your drains remain clog-free, and your home be filled with warmth and laughter.
