  1. Myth: Plumbing fixtures last forever.
  2. Fact: Plumbing fixtures, like faucets and toilets, will eventually wear out and must be replaced. It’s essential to regularly maintain and repair fixtures to extend their lifespan.
  3. Myth: Low water pressure is normal in older homes.
  4. Fact: While low water pressure may be more common in older homes, it’s not necessarily typical. There may be underlying issues with the plumbing system that need to be addressed, such as corroded pipes or a faulty pressure regulator.
  5. Myth: You don’t need to worry about leaks if they’re small.
  6. Fact: Even small leaks can cause significant damage over time, including mold growth and structural damage. It’s important to address leaks as soon as they’re discovered to prevent costly repairs.
  7. Myth: You can use a plunger to unclog any drain.
  8. Fact: Plungers are effective for unclogging some drains, but they won’t work for all clogs. It’s important to use the right tool for the job and avoid causing further damage to pipes and fixtures.
  9. Myth: You can fix any plumbing problem yourself.
  10. Fact: While some minor plumbing issues can be fixed with DIY methods, it’s important to know when to call a professional plumber. Attempting to fix complex plumbing issues without the proper knowledge and tools can cause costly damage and potentially harm yourself or others.
  11. Myth: You only need to clean your drains when they’re clogged.
  12. Fact: Regular drain cleaning can help prevent clogs from forming in the first place and keep your plumbing system running smoothly. It’s important to schedule routine drain cleaning to avoid costly plumbing problems. Contact: PlumbersCapeCod.com
