What purpose does a strainer serve in plumbing systems?


Henry Johnson, Plumbing Expert

A strainer is a device used in plumbing systems to filter out debris and other unwanted particles from the water supply. It is typically installed in the inlet of a water-using appliance, such as a dishwasher or washing machine, to prevent clogs and damage to the appliance. Strainers can also be used in sink drains and showerheads to prevent hair and other materials from clogging the pipes. If you are experiencing issues with clogged pipes or appliances, the specialists at 5 Star Best Plumbing can provide expert solutions, including water heater repair and repiping services.
