Know Where The Shut Off Valves Are
It does not matter whether you are experiencing a plumbing emergency or not. Knowing where your plumbing’s shut-off valves are is critical. Shut-off valves are often located near your water heater or under sinks. However, there is a chance that they are somewhere else within your home. If you need help with locating these valves, we can help during our free consultation.
Routinely Clean Your Drains
Nobody likes a non-functioning drain. Often, drains can malfunction due to clogging, which is usually easy to prevent. If you want to prevent drainage issues, clean your kitchen and bathroom drains. While you can usually do this yourself, you can also call our team if the clog is too severe for a simple wash of Drain-O.
Invest in Useful Tools
When it comes to ensuring the functionality of your plumbing, you can never be too prepared! Plumbing issues can happen quickly without warning. Due to this, you must have the tools you need to fix and prevent them. Such tools you should have in your inventory include a pipe wrench, a drain snake, and pliers. Furthermore, we are happy to recommend you the best products for your toolbox.
Keep An Eye Out For Discoloration
It is always crucial to keep an eye out for any potential signs of water damage. However, one of the most noticeable is discoloration around your pipes and walls. Are you finding that a specific spot is looking darker than usual? It could signify a leak that needs immediate repair. Do not hesitate to call a contractor to get this discoloration checked out.
