Hot water is an amenity that we tend to take for granted. Most good quality hot water systems are built to last for at least 10 years or more. The condition of these systems depends on how well they have been maintained and whether you have serviced and repaired them regularly. However, there are various conditions under which the system may start to deteriorate or malfunction much sooner than it’s intended lifespan. 

This could happen because of overuse, misuse, lack of maintenance, or poor quality installation. If you have noticed any problems in the system, you much call in a licensed plumber without delay.

How To Keep Your Garbage Disposal Functioning Well

When it comes to plumbing systems, your drains and garbage disposals have an essential role to play. The drains see continuous usage in most homes and can wear and tear over time. Most people neglect to get their drainage systems cleaned with regularity which ultimately causes blockages in them.

At  SPS Plumbers Sutherland Shire we recommend that clients get preventive plumbing maintenance done regularly on the property. We offer cost-effective plumbing maintenance plans which help you keep various fixtures and fittings on your property in good shape at all times. While we do provide outstanding services, we also encourage our clients to follow specific preventive measures regularly.

When it comes to drainage systems, prevention is always better than cure. Just as it is vital to make sure that all of your plumbing systems are in good condition, it is also crucial to be wary of what we are disposing into the drains without any thought.

A simple thing like disposing of garbage correctly can save you a significant amount of money on garbage disposal repairs and replacements. As mentioned earlier, if there is a blockage in your drain, do not try any fixes yourself. Hire the services of a licensed and professional plumber like the ones at our company.

Never Strain Your Garbage Disposal

Some of the things that you should never discard in your garbage disposals include:

  • Many people dump coffee grounds in the garbage disposal every single day. They feel this powder will easily get washed away with the water. However, the fact is that it can accumulate in bends in the drainage pipe and turn into a sludge-like substance. Ultimately, this can cause blockages in the drain pipe.
  • Eggshells seem to be very fragile; however, that too can cause blockages in your drains. Sometimes the crushed eggshells get stuck in other items that you have discarded into the sewers and will create an even more significant build-up. It is far better to dispose of eggshells in the trash or use it as compost.
  • We all used cooking oil in our meals. However, you should never pour the leftover bacon grease or oil into the drain. These can thicken inside the drainage pipes and clog your drainage system. Aside from this, the fat will also line the pipes and result in deterioration of the installations.
  • Pasta is soft and may seem harmless when it comes to discarding it in the drainage. However, when you throw leftover pasta into the garbage disposal, it will flow with the water into the drainpipe but may settle somewhere. It is far better to toss the pasta into the trash can as it tends to expand and block the drainage pipes.
  • When you discard potato peels into drains, they convert into a very sticky material and harden causing blockages. This is one more thing you should keep away from your garbage disposal.

Keeping the few preventive measures in mind is an excellent way to maintain the condition of the garbage disposal in your kitchen. For any more information, please call SPS Plumbers Sutherland Shire at (02) 9158 3513 or drop us a line via this Online Form, and we will revert shortly.


It isn’t uncommon for plumbing issues to show up all of a sudden. At times such as these, you start to struggle and search the internet for a local plumber who would be able to provide emergency services. However, this isn’t the right way to go about it. Hiring just any plumber that you find may prove to be an incorrect decision. You need to be sure that the professional you hire can provide you with reliable, efficient and cost-effective solutions.

We at SPS Plumbers Sutherland Shire always recommend that you should conduct a certain amount of research and be prepared in advance before any plumbing issue arises on your property. While there are many Plumbers Sutherland Shire, there are various aspects that you need to consider before you hire one. 

 How to Hire a Good Plumber

  • Always look for an experienced plumbing company. They will have handled many different types of projects which gives them the expertise to tackle even the most complex jobs expertly. 
  • It is also very essential that you check the company’s credibility in the market. Always read online reviews to determine whether they have a good standing and what customers are saying about them.
  • Check their website; see whether it is professionally designed and holds all the information. A company that is serious about how it conducts business will always have a well-designed website.
  • Determine whether the company has licensing and insurance. These details are generally listed on the website. However, if you do not find them there, call them and ask for these details.
  • When you contact the operator, determine how proactive they are with giving you all the details and information that you require about the services they offer. This should give you a fair understanding of their customer service levels which is an essential aspect for you in the future.
  • Check whether they offer 24/7 emergency plumbing services. After all, you want to be sure that they would be able to tackle any immediate problems that you face with your plumbing systems. It is also necessary for you to check whether they charge a call-out fee for their standard and emergency plumbing services.
  • Even after you have all of this information in place, do not make a hasty decision about hiring them. It is best to get all of these pieces of information from various companies and then make your final choice.

If you are looking for an experienced, licensed and insured plumbing company that would be able to cater to all your standard and emergency plumbing requirements, you are in the right place. As an operator with vast industry experience, we have what it takes to provide our clients with the kind of services that will offer them value for money.
