My house was built in 1929, so suffice to say, there were a lot of things that needed to be renovated or upgraded when I became the owner! I’ve been very fortunate, because Jai is the most handy person I’ve ever met. He’s done all manner of plumbing in the house himself, from installing hot water heaters to completely remodeling our bathroom.
DIY improvements save a ton of money, but you don’t have to have an intimate knowledge of plumbing to do them. In fact, you can take preventative measures to keep your pipes in good working order without having to know a thing about maintenance!
One of my favorite Roto-Rooter home products is their Roto-Rooter Septic Treatment. The importance of maintaining the septic tank became crystal clear to me within months of becoming a homeowner, when a plumbing issue resulted in me needing to have the whole tank pumped, which cost a couple of hundred dollars.
The formula of Roto-Rooter Septic Treatment is designed to break down things like paper and grease to help keep your system from backing up, and you don’t have to know a thing about plumbing to use it! Simply measure out the product according to your tank size – I used 8oz for our large septic tank – pour it into the toilet, and flush. Repeat this once a month. That’s it! No plumbing experience required. As the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, so it’s worth taking care of small home maintenance projects now, before they turn into problems.
