PLUMBING FACTS & TIPS

valve230 150
Avoid dealing with plumbing service companies who refuse to give you a price range based on the information you are providing. This is usually a sales tactic used to get a technician on site, assuming you'll approve the repair even though the price is extremely high. plunger230 150 
Unattach your garden hoses and drain/blow out your sprinkler system before freezing temperatures arrive in the fall. If your pipes do freeze, turn off the main water valve and call a professional. Not all frozen pipes require repair. However, we believe it is better to error on the side of caution. frozen230 150
Once you get to the point where water is backing up in multiple fixtures, the toilet being the key indicator, it means the main sewer line from the house to the city sewer or septic tank has a blockage. Small hand snakes and chemicals will be ineffective, time to call a professional. roots230 150 
High water bills can be caused by a variety of reasons. Toilets consume more than 40% of your total water usuage, a minor rebuild (flapper & fill valve) will keep your toilets operating efficiently. A leaky faucet that drips once per second can waste more than 8 gallons a day. Replacing an old shower head can save 7.5 gallons/min.

Turn off the main water valve inside your home then go outside and check your water meter. If it is still turning you may have an underground leak.

If a sink is running slow, always check the P-trap for debris before scheduling service with your plumbing company. If it is a bathroom sink, also check the pop-up assembly for hair build-up. A bathtub or shower may have hair caught on the drain cover or entry point into the drain. ptrap230 150
If you notice a sewer odor in your home, check your floor drains or unused fixtures for the source of the smell. Every plumbing fixture has a self-sealing water trap which stores about 2 cups of water in a U-shaped bend. If it is dry just add water to the drain and check later to see if smell has been eliminated.
