Common Misconceptions About Plumbing

Plumbing can often seem like a different language to people unfamiliar with the field. All most people know is that plumbing is something that’s supposed to be working all the time, and you’re just not supposed to know it’s happening. It’s all supposed to run smoothly and without issues, but that’s not how it always goes. That’s why plumbers exist, in fact. Sometimes, your plumbing system needs work from the experts. That said, it’s never too late to become something of an expert on your own plumbing system.

In order to become an expert on plumbing, however, it’s important to remember that there are a wide variety of myths associated with plumbing. Remember that these exist and be sure to keep in mind that they aren’t true. Now, without further ado, here are some myths to avoid when thinking about plumbing.

1. Citrus fruits can be put down the drain and garbage disposal to clean

Citrus fruits such as lemons, limes, and oranges may smell great, but putting them down your drains and garbage disposals is not a good idea. Garbage disposals aren’t indestructible, and they are in fact quite fragile. The problem with citrus fruits is that they are extremely acidic. The acid in these kinds of fruits can rust your drain and damage your metal pipes, not to mention damaging your garbage disposal and its components. Instead of using citrus fruits, use hot water and vinegar. These will actually do a much better job of cleaning your pipes and garbage disposal while not damaging them in the process.

2. Putting all foods down the garbage disposal is fine

Garbage disposals are powerful and metal, meaning they seem like they can take any kind of food. This simply isn’t true. There’s a wide variety of foods that cannot be put down your garbage disposal. These kinds of foods include pasta, vegetables, potatoes, coffee grounds, animal bones, greases and cooking oils. There are even more foods than this, but if something is hard or pasty, it’s a good bet that you can’t put it down your garbage disposal. Some won’t break the disposal right away but rather create a build-up that hurts the disposal over time. Remember to read your disposal’s instructions to make sure you aren’t putting anything down there that you aren’t supposed to. This will make your plumbing last longer and negate the necessity for repairs.
