Sticky substances like bananas, chicken skin and pumpkin pulp can clog your drain even if they go through the blades. Throw out hard-to-grind things in a garbage can first, and then place the rest of the food in the disposal. Insulation should be used in areas that are cut off from heat during the winter. For example, this includes crawl spaces, attics and within exterior walls. Insulation is available that easily wraps around pipes. Doing so will prevent bursting of pipes that become frozen and helps keep water hotter when showering. Over time, sediment buildup may lead to problems with low water pressure. Often, this problem can be addressed by thoroughly cleaning out the aerator. Disassemble the fixture to remove the aerator, and then scrub it with vinegar and a small brush. Rinse the piece, put it back together, and put it back on the faucet. Removing obstructions from the aerator should allow for increased water pressure.

Always buy a high quality fixture if you are going to replace your shower head. Choosing the cheapest shower head in the store can end up costing you more in the long run. Like many cheap products, however, cheap shower heads are often not durable.
