Keep your Plumbing in Great Shape
Any prevention effort helps keep your home’s plumbing in tip-top condition and saves you in repairs in the long run.

  • The smallest of drips can amount to thousands of gallons of wasted water a day! Regularly check under your sinks for dampness or small leaks. Repair leaking faucets to save on water costs as well as keep your fixtures and pipes free from water damage.
  • Remove and clean your faucet aerators once a year to ensure a smooth flow of water.
  • Keep the overflow holes on bathtubs and vanities clear and open to prevent water damage to floors and ceilings.

Water Heater

  • If you choose to repair your water heater yourself, first read your owner's manual. Shut off the gas and power before doing any maintenance work.
  • Drain about a gallon of water from the tank once every three months. This helps remove the sediment build-up at the bottom of the heater, which can hinder performance.
  • Inspect your water heater burner occasionally. If you notice a yellow flame or soot, contact a professional for help.
  • Have your water heater inspected by a service technician at least once every two years. They will check for signs of leakage and corrosion.

Toilets

  • Inspect your toilet for leaks at least once a year. A simple test involves inserting a small amount of red food coloring in the tank then checking the toilet bowl later. Red color in the bowl tells you water is leaking from the tank and you should replace the talk ball.

Clogs

  • Fitting tubs and shower drains with a strainer helps grab hold of soap chips and hair and prevent clogs. Clean the strainer frequently.
  • Avoid rinsing cooking oils or fats down your kitchen sink. Liquid fats create clogs when they solidify in the cold pipes.
  • Steer clear of using caustic liquid drain openers on a fully clogged drain. They get trapped and can damage your pipes. Contact a professional if you are unable to clear the drain yourself.

Garbage Disposal

Your garbage disposal can have a longer life if you:

  • Use plenty of cold water when running it.
  • Avoid overloading it.
  • Don't dispose of things like bones, corn husks, egg shells, potato skins or rice!
  • Never use a caustic drain opener.
