5 Common Water and Plumbing Myths 150 150 Avant Rooter Support Team

Water and plumbing are things in our lives that we often talk about. There are several ideas and beliefs that many people share, but not all of them are true. Here we will reveal some of those common plumbing myths, along with the facts.

  1. Bottled Water is Better Than Water in the Kitchen Tap

Most water bottling companies do not get their water from springs. They get the water you have running through your tap and attempt to purify it and add some nutrients. But you should also know that this water is put in plastic bottles, which can invite harmful chemicals into the water, so it is debatable if that water is safer than the kitchen water. Simultaneously, the pipes in your home may not be as clean as the water bottle. In short, it is a bit of a gamble when it comes to choosing the safest of the two.

  1. If Water is Flowing Through the Drain, the Drain is Not Clogged

Many people will not realize how clogged their drain pipes are until they are blocked. There are other ways to tell that a drain is blocked; you could lookout for a foul smell from the drain, which would mean something is stuck in there and rotting. A clogged drain may still allow water to go through, but it will drain slower than usual, and you may hear a gurgling sound as the water goes through, or you may even see bubbles as the water goes through.

  1. 8 Glasses of Water is the Optimum Amount of Water to Drink Every Day

Your weight, age, alcohol intake, physical health, the activity you engage in that day, and the temperature will determine how much water you need to drink. If you sweat a lot, you will need to drink more water to replace what you are losing.

  1. A Leaking Tap is Nothing to Worry About

For many, a leaky tap is merely annoying, and the amount of water being lost is negligible. This is not true. If you calculate the amount of water you would lose in a year if the tap kept on leaking, you will realize it is no longer negligible. A leaky faucet needs to be tightened to stop water loss; it will worsen if you do not fix it.

  1. You Can Fix any Clog with a Plunger.

Many homeowners believe if they have a plunger, clogging is not an issue. While plungers take care of most simple clogs in the home, clogs that occur more profound in the pipes need a plumber to unclog. Call us now to hire a professional plumber to take care of all your plumbing needs.
