Things You Should Know About Your Home Plumbing

Things You Should Know About Your Home Plumbing

In school, you probably learned many things that it seems like you can’t use anywhere today. Surprisingly, at times we seem uninterested in learning more about the things we really do need in our everyday life, but sometimes those things can be what matters the most.

A perfect example of something you need every day but you have probably never bothered to learn about is the toilet you probably just used this morning. Unless you don’t need your bathroom and kitchen, it’s good to know a few simple things about what you should do and should not do when using them. Your toilet, sink, shower and tub are all important parts of your household plumbing.

 Proper Care of Your Drain and Disposal Systems

First off, you should never pour grease, oil or oily water into your kitchen sink because the oil or grease can gather and eventually block your pipes. Although this will not happen immediately, and sometimes takes months to show, the oils and fats in the water will collect, and hot water alone is not enough to remove it. Sometimes, a situation like this might lead to you having to have a professional sewer line cleaning or a replacement of the whole clogged pipe. Isn’t it better to avoid spending money on things that you can avoid? It is best to dispose of that grease and oily water somewhere else, and avoid pouring it into the kitchen sink. Many people use an empty coffee can to pour used cooking oil or grease into.

 Use Garbage Disposals for the Solid Waste in Your Kitchen

Some waste should never be placed into your garbage disposal. Bones, shellfish shells, grease, metal items, paper and plastic should never be placed into your disposal. Really, only soft food items are safe. For the best long-term care of your disposal, it is best to teach your children why they should avoid inappropriate disposal of solid waste and that only waste that can be easily ground up should go into the garbage disposal. It is also recommended that you make sure there is water running in your sink whenever you turn on your disposal. Though it goes without saying, never reach into your disposal when it is running. If you hear a metal item start to grind, turn off the disposal immediately.

 Tips About Your Toilet You Should Know

Depending on the public waste disposal system implemented in your area, there is some solid waste that should never be flushed through the toilet. Often in the rural areas, you will find septic tanks in many homes. Cotton, sanitary pads, diapers and thick tissue papers should not be flushed in either toilets or septic systems. These waste items might lead to blockages in both types of systems. Flushing sanitary pads and other cotton materials through the toilet can lead to clogs that affect a wide area. During the recent toilet paper outages, many people bought paper towels since that was sometimes the only thing you could find, if that. Now that things are a little more “normal,” it is best to reserve the paper towels for spills, as they were intended.

 There are several other ways of protecting your plumbing system, and you are encouraged to continue reading our blogs. If you need our drain cleaning or any of our other plumbing services, you can contact us through our website or give us a call at: 909-823-3807.

Safety First

For many people in southern California, the thought of returning to life in public places is a bit unsettling. Many people say that one the biggest concerns to dining inside a restaurant, going to the mall or going back to work, church or school is the thought of having to use a public restroom, knowing that it’s possible that the coronavirus is lurking on every surface, just waiting for their arrival. 

In a Washington Post-University of Maryland poll last month, 78 percent said they would be uncomfortable eating at a sit-down restaurant. The results were similar whether people lived in a state that is opening up businesses or one still operating under tight restrictions.

A study published last week concluded that COVID-19 droplets from human speaking can hang in the air for at least eight minutes and on many surfaces, it can last for hours. Obviously, this is not encouraging news. If anything, COVID-19 has elevated washing your hands to a potentially life-saving act. Researchers in Wuhan, China, where COVID-19 originated last year, found that even though hospitals were able to prevent the spread of the virus beyond a patient’s room, a high concentration of viral particles remained in air samples from patient toilets. According to the Wuhan study, droplets of SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19, can remain airborne for up to three hours. Flushing the toilet, then, whisks viral particles into the air. A lid can help contain those particles.

Let’s just say that we’re all dedicated hand-washers now. How do we make sure we are safe in a public restroom? The fact is, “Americans have always had a fear of contamination from public restrooms,” said Soifer, a professor of social work at the University of Mississippi. “What we’re seeing now is part just heightened anxiety, but it’s also part reality-based. Public restrooms in this country generally have open toilet seats — no lids — and high-pressure flushes create a plume of droplets that extends at least six feet.”

Many businesses that don’t already have them are installing touch-free sinks, toilets and urinals in restrooms before opening their doors. McDonald’s is requiring franchisees to clean bathrooms every 30 minutes. Across the country, businesses are replacing blow dryers with paper towels, closing off urinals and sinks that now seem too close together, and removing restroom doors to create airport-style, no-touch entrances.

What if you’re just visiting the restroom to wash your hands? Do not use the hot-air hand dryer! Researchers at the University of Connecticut confirmed suspicions that these hand dryers inhale particles from the air and deposit them on your freshly washed hands. Petri dishes exposed to bathroom air for two minutes with hand dryers off grew no more than one colony of bacteria, as an example. Petri dishes exposed to hot hand-dryer air for 30 seconds grew up to 254 colonies of bacteria.

Whenever possible, look for touchless paper-towel dispensers. On your way out of the bathroom, after drying your hands, use a fresh paper towel to open the restroom door, and please don’t just drop your paper towel, allowing it to fall to the floor, after opening the door. Take it with you and drop it in the nearest garbage container.


Anthony’s Plumbing has multiple solutions when it comes to converting your restrooms into safer spaces for your staff and visitors.

From touchless sinks, to self-flushing toilets and urinals, we can help you plan, acquire and install all the items you need for the ultimate in safety for your business, school or church restroom. Our contractor’s license allows us to make all the changes necessary to your new or existing restroom facilities. We also recommend that you install touchless paper-towel dispensers and let us know if you need help in that area. Call us today and let’s schedule a time when we can talk about your needs. Of course, time is of the essence as businesses, churches, schools and public places return to “normal,” so please know that we are here for you.
