Plumbing Tips and Hints from A Rooter Pros
By preventing plumbing problems to begin with, you can save time, money, water damage to your home and a major headache. Here are some plumbing tips from the New Jersey plumbing experts:
Water Valve Location
Everyone who lives in your home should know the location of the main water valve. This valve controls the flow of water into your home. To find the main water valve, locate the water meter installed by the utility company. The valve is most likely on the side of the pipes feeding into your house.
How to Detect a Leak
Before going to bed, shut off everything in your house that uses water. Find the water meter and write down the exact number of gallons used. The next morning, check the water meter. If it has changed, you have a leak.
Garbage Disposal Tips
Do not pour fats or cooking oils into your sink. Liquid fats can solidify in cold drainpipes, trap food particles, and clog the drains. Corn husks, artichokes, onion skins, celery, and other high-fiber material can clog your disposal.
