Be careful of what you flush down the toilet
Every so often homeowners flush something they should not, materials that were not designed to disintegrate as well as toilet paper. This could lead to consequences including a mess or having to call a plumber to assist. Even if the flush of the unwanted material does not immediately overflow, it may be harming your home's pipes in the process and contributing to an even larger problem in the local sewer system. You can avoid the inconvenience and damage by making sure you never flush these materials including but not limited to paper towels, wipes, disposable diapers, cooking oil, cotton swabs, kitten litter, and more.
Don’t wait too long to call the PROS in Plumbing

Insulate your pipes to prepare for cold winter months
Protect your pipes from freezing with insulation tubes that you can buy from your local hardware store. It is a simple and cost-effective form of protection. You will want to pay attention to pipes that have frozen in the past, located in unheated areas or been recently repaired.
Locate the main water shutoff valve in your home
If you don't know where your main water shutoff valve is, stop what you're doing and go find it! If you have a water emergency, it is crucial to turn off the water supply immediately. Running water can cause extensive damage and can occur rapidly.
