How can I prevent clogged drains?
Invest in some preventive maintenance to avoid the hassle of clogged drains. Local hardware stores sell mesh covers that can be placed over open drains. Use these in your laundry rooms sink and other open drains. Clean the mesh covers regularly to remove lint, hair and other debris. If your sink has a stopper, clean it regularly.
In the kitchen, be particular about what goes down the drains. Garbage disposals are great for small amounts of food, but whole meals and leftovers from the weekend should be put straight into the trash can. Never put grease down the sink as it can back up in the line and form a difficult clog. As a preventive measure, pour boiling water down the line about once a week to eliminate any greasy residue and keep things clean
How can I detect a water leak?
Water leaks that are hidden inside walls are difficult to spot. However, that doesn’t mean you won’t find other clues. A water bill that spikes up is a warning sign. If you hear water running when everything is turned off, then you probably have a water leak somewhere. More serious warning signs include cracks in the foundation and areas of excessive settling.
It’s important to call in the professionals when you suspect a water leak. Licensed plumbers have special equipment for detecting the leak, and we can provide you with fast and effective repairs. Quick treatment will help you avoid structural damage and keep your water bill down.
Can I extend the lifespan of my water heater?
It’s so easy to neglect your water tank, but you should take care to make it last longer. Start by insulating the tank with a special pad or blanket. The water heater won’t have to work as hard, and that helps it last longer. You should also flush the tank at least once a year. If you aren’t sure how to do this chore, then you can call us and let our team take care of it for you. Removing the sediment buildup from the bottom of the tank will help the supply tank last longer and provide you with more years of service.
