Here are some plumbing tips which helps you avoid costly emergency plumbing services.
- Drains are not meant to handle anything that fits. Some foods, such as coffee, grease and potato peels, can damage your plumbing. And it is just asking for problems to put bones, seafood shells and non- food items down the drain.
- It is not meant to use toilets as trash bins. It doesn’t mean it should, just because something can be flushed. Flushing baby wipes, female servings, cotton balls and other trash can easily lead to a situation of emergency plumbing repair.
- If your plumbing springs a big leak, the water flow must be switched off as soon as possible. Locate the main shut-off valve in advance to prevent flooding and severe water damage during leaks.
- Know always where the main water shutdown valve is in the event of leakage. Know how to turn the heater off. Turn the switch to pilot position when it is a gas water heater. The insulation valves at each fixture stop the water flow to that location. This allows water to keep the rest of the house in service while the leak is being repaired.
If an emergency involves a particular fixture or device, first look for its shut-off valve and turn it clockwise to only shut the water off to that fixture or device. Bullet usually, the valve is located below a fixture, such as a sink or toilet, or behind an appliance, such as a washer for clothes, at the point where the pipe or pipes attaches to it. If there is no problem with a particular fixture or device, or if there is no shut- off valve for the fixture or device, use the main shut- off valve to switch off the water supply to the whole house. Bullet Inside or outside your house, where the main water supply pipe enters, you will find the main shutdown valve. Bullet Look inside the foundation wall in the basemen in cold climates. Good professional tip if you need a spanner to turn the valve, keep one labeled closer to the valve so it’s handy. If the main shut-off valve itself is defective and needs to be repaired, call your water company; you can send someone out with the special tool to shut off the street water before the valve reaches. Our plumbers use a bucket with five gallons as a tool holder. And if the mid-project leak springs, it will catch the water. You can also attach a tool caddy to the bucket, which provides a place for everything. Keep a cup forced and a regular plunger convenient. Each plunger has its own specific application and provides extra power.
