Leak Detection: The First Line of Defense

  1. Conduct regular visual inspections around your home, checking for water stains, dampness, or slab leaks.
  2. Listen for the sound of running water when all fixtures are turned off. This could indicate a hidden leak.
  3. Monitor your water bill for unexplained spikes, which may signal a leak.
  4. Consider investing in a leak detection system for added peace of mind.

Water Heater Maintenance: Extending Its Lifespan

  1. Flush your water heater annually to remove sediment buildup, which can improve efficiency and prolong its life.
  2. Check the anode rod and replace it if necessary to prevent corrosion and tank failure.
  3. Insulate your water heater tank and pipes to reduce heat loss and save energy costs.
  4. Set the temperature at 120°F or lower to prevent scalding and reduce energy consumption.

Clogged Drain Uncloggers

  • Try using a plunger first before reaching for chemical drain cleaners.
  • For stubborn clogs, use a plumber’s snake or drain auger to clear the obstruction.
  • Pour a mixture of baking soda and vinegar down the drain, followed by boiling water, for a natural and eco-friendly cleaning solution.
  • Avoid pouring grease or food particles down drains to prevent future clogs.
