The Pipe Surgeon, who is also known as Jared Derrico, developed a strong ethic from an early age, not least because he knew that his parents often woke up at 2:30am so they could go to work and put food on the table. He has carried this forward into his own career, which is why he has experienced success as a drain maintenance professional. There are a number of ley elements that demonstrate somebody has a strong work ethic, including the following.
Going Above And Beyond
Many people are happy to just do the jobs they are paid for without showing any initiative to provide more or be more productive. Those with strong work ethics will go above and beyond to ensure the people they work with are happy and they deliver the best service possible. They do not allow their output to stagnate and are always looking for ways to improve.
Those with strong work ethics understand that they are expected to act in certain ways when in the professional environment. They will wear clothing that is relevant to the work they do, in addition to developing the skills required to communicate with clients and fellow professionals alike. The way they treat others is a sign of the respect they have for the work they do.
If people with strong work ethics say something is going to get done, you can feel sure they are telling the truth. They work as hard as possible to keep their promises in order to maintain professional relationships.
As a drain cleaning specialist The Pipe Surgeon, whose real name is Jared Derrico, often works with clients who are experiencing issues with their kitchen drains. These are some of the most difficult drains to maintain, as food preparation and utensil cleaning often lead to a lot of things being poured down sinks and flushed into pipes that shouldn’t be there. If you wish to maintain your kitchen drains as well as possible, keep these pointers in mind.
Be Careful With Grease
Grease buildup can be a common problem with kitchen drains, so it is crucial you know how to deal with it. While using hot water is recommended in most situations, it may melt grease. While this makes it easier to pour down the sink, it also encourages the grease to coat the inside of your pipes. If you must pour grease down your pipes, use cold water to keep it in a solid state, so it runs straight through the pipe.
Avoid Food Waste
There is no reason to allow food waste to go down your kitchen drain, as it just results in the buildup of materials that can clog the pipes. Remove any waste from your dishes before cleaning them in the sink and remember that even the smallest things can lead to problems later on.
Maintain The Sink
Your sink needs to be cleaned properly to ensure the pipes attached to it work well. Use drain cleaner and clean the sink at least once a month to ensure everything stays in top shape.
The Pipe Surgeon is a drain maintenance specialist who is based in Saugus, Massachusetts.
The Pipe Surgeon knows that if you live in a rural area, you are likely to have a private septic system. Private septic systems are a must when a municipality does not have a sewage system. For example, many homes in Alaska are located off the grid and rely only on solar electricity and private septic systems.
In short, a septic system is your own sewage management facility. A septic system is usually located in a basement or behind a home, out of sight, and doesn’t emit any odors when property maintained.
Modern septic systems are easy to maintain. A well-constructed septic tank should last a lifetime. This being said, the area where the septic system waste pipes are located will most likely need a treatment or replacement about fifteen years after installation.
To keep your septic system problem-free, you will need to follow several simple rules.
Be careful about what goes into the system. Your septic tank needs to sustain a delicate biological balance, which can be easily upset.
Make sure to not put too much water into the septic tank. A septic tank works because of a natural separation of lighter waste and solid debris. The solids settle on the bottom of the tank while lighter waste, such as oil, eventually moves to the top and forms a scum layer. The liquid between the two layers clarifies and flows out through an outlet pipe. Putting too much water into the tank may cause it to back up.
Also, avoid putting excessive amounts of any chemicals, coffee grounds, cooking oils, paper towels, cigarette butts, or other materials that will not decompose. If you start having issues with your septic tank, call the Pipe Surgeon for help.
The Pipe Surgeon discovered a passion for plumbing when he was studying at vocational school.
Drain pipes use gravity to remove wastewater from fixtures such as sinks, bathtubs, and showers, as well as appliances such as washers and dishwashers. Drain pipes connect to a private septic tank or a municipal sewer system.
Modern drain pipes are mostly made of plastic. If you live in an older home, your pipes may be made of copper, lead, steel, or iron. Drain pipes pose no health hazards because they are not a part of your home’s water supply system. That being said, lead pipes are no longer produced for use in home plumbing systems.
Drain pipes range in diameter from one-and-a-quarter inches to four inches in diameter. The larger the diameter of a pipe, the more efficiently wastewater can pass through it.
Every drain in your home has a trap. Traps play a very important role in the drain system because they prevent waste gasses from entering the air of your home. A trap is a curved section of a drain pipe that has standing water in it.
Traps are usually located right next to drain openings in sinks and other fixtures and appliances. The water in a trap is flushed away and replaced with new wastewater each time you use a drain.
Drain systems need air to function properly. Air lets water flow freely through the pipes. This is why drain pipes are connected to vent pipes. This system is called a drain-waste-vent (DWV) system. The air opening that allows the DWV system to work is usually located on the roof. Should you have any problems with your DWV system, call the Pipe Surgeon and he will fix it for you.
