1. Try not to pour liquid grease down the drain. Before washing pots and pans, wipe out congealed grease with a paper towel. Use biodegradable soaps and detergents.
2. Foul odors occur from a buildup of food debris inside your garbage disposal. To eliminate these odors, place ice cubes and lemon peels in the disposal and run for about 30 seconds, then rinse with cold water.
3. Water pressure in your home above 60 pounds per square inch is harmful to your plumbing system and will cause excessive water usage.
4. Contact your local water authority to find out what the water pressure is on your street. If it exceeds 60 pounds, consider installing a pressure-reducing valve that will limit the water pressure within your home.
