24/7 emergency plumbing services in Geelong? Get rid of smelly floor drains: If you have a floor drain somewhere in a house that isn’t used much and often smells like sewer gases, here’s a quick fix that anybody could do. Just grab some vegetable oil and pour a good amount of it in the drain. Unlike water, vegetable oil doesn’t evaporate so you should be good for a while if you use this trick.
Before you go to bed, if the temperature is forecasted to dip below freezing, turn on a faucet with pipes running along an exterior wall for a slow drip. This keeps the water flowing, which reduces the risk of freezing. It also protects against burst pipes if the water does freeze, because it prevents pressure from building up between the faucet and an ice formation.

Replace worn hoses on appliances: The lifespan of a washing machine or dishwasher hose is about five years, and they may show no signs of wear and tear until the day when they suddenly burst. If it’s been a while since you installed a new hose, seize the opportunity to replace them and save yourself the trouble and expense of water damage within your laundry room.
