Why Underfloor Heating Is Worth It

It is without a doubt that underfloor heating is one of the more expensive options you can choose to have in your home. With it becoming costly to install and fix if there are any problems. But, without a doubt, there are many reasons why underfloor heating is worth every penny spent.

Underfloor heating is a more energy-efficient way to warm up your home. With it taking less time for the heat to rise from below from your floor than it does for radiators to spread the heat across your room.

Most plumbers who install underfloor heating will recommend that you have this constantly running. This, therefore, means that underfloor heating is much easier to run. Due to it always being set at one temperature.

Finally, with underfloor heating, you will have more room in your home. It is surprising how much room radiators and other heat supplies will take up. Using underfloor heating will remove these from the room.

Reasons Why Your Toilet May Be Blocked

Toilet blockages are extremely common across homes all around the world. But some of us may not understand why our toilets keep becoming blocked. Today, we are going to share with you three common reasons your toilet may be blocked.

Toilet Paper
The most common reason for your toilet becoming blocked is toilet paper. Either you are using the wrong kind of toilet paper, or you are using too much. You do not want to be putting too much paper down your toilet as this can be difficult to flush away.

Not Enough Water
If you do not have enough incoming water supply, this can cause your tank to not have enough water. Meaning when you flush, there is not enough water being used. Making it difficult for the waste to be flushed away, causing a blockage.

Design Fault
Another common reason why your toilet may be blocked is a design fault. If there are too many turns within the pipes to the sewers, there are more areas for waste to become lodged.

How To Unblock Your Sink

Sinks are very common to become blocked or have some form of drainage problems. Today, we are going to share with you some tips on how to unblock your sink.

The first option you should try is using a plunger. This sucks the air out of your drain, with the hope of dislodging the blockage. This is the best and safest way to cure a blockage without chemicals.

Alongside a plunger, sometimes a burst of water can help to unblock your sink. Turn your tap onto full blast down your drain to see if this will dislodge the blockage. This can however make the blockage worse and bigger.

Sometimes neither of these two simple options will work, but they should always be your first resort. If these fail, we recommend using some drain unblocked chemicals. These can be brought from local supermarkets or made with white vinegar and baking soda. They work by breaking down the blockage allowing water to drain freely.

Why Shouldn’t Food Be Put Down Your Sink?

People continue to put scraps of food down their sinks, but it is simple, no scraps of food should be going down your sink. Today, we are going to share with you why certain foods should not be put down your sinks.

To begin with, meats, no scraps of meat, no matter how small they are, should be sent down your sink drain. Meats tend to become stringy whether they are cooked or raw. Meaning they can become tangled, causing a major blockage which is not needed.

Fruit skins are another common food put down our sinks. However, fruit skins are tough and therefore very hard to breakdown. Meaning they may become lodged in our pipes again causing an unneeded blockage.

Finally, flour. With most of us being unsure with how to dispose of unwanted flour, the sink seems to be the best option. However, when mixed with water, flour becomes a glue-like substance. Making it likely to cause a major blockage.
