Household Plumbing Tips

It’s no secret that the plumbing system is one of the most important parts of your home—in one day how many people in your home take a shower, go to the bathroom, do the dishes, laundry or wash their hands? That’s a lot of use!

Check out the list below to help your home plumbing system run as smoothly and efficiently as possible.

Become familiar with your house’s plumbing system and pipes – An important part of maintaining your home plumbing is knowing where your pipes are – it is also extremely important to know where the shut-off valve for your plumbing is located and how to use it in case of an emergency.

Check for Leaks – It is important to check your plumbing system for leaks regularly – if not taken care of quickly, leaks cause damage to your home and wallet.

Maintain Your Drains – A good rule of thumb is to have the drains around your home checked and cleaned by a professional on an annual basis before they malfunction. Spring cleaning is the perfect time to have this task checked off your list.

Know when to call a professional – While some common plumbing issues within your home seem like a simple fix, by trying to take it on yourself you may cause more harm than good. Know when to call a professional for repairs, maintenance or “quick-fixes.”
