Prevent Plumbing Problems: Plumber In Naples

Plumbing issues affect your quality of life. Though not all plumbing issues are preventable, there are several steps you and your family can take to prevent the frequency of plumbing problems in your home. All homes require year-round attention to plumbing details, keeping your eyes open for potential issues can help avoid serious damage.

Leaky Toilets:
Working parts inside toilets can fail and a leaky toilet can not only damage internal parts but also waste over 70,000 gallons of water per year. Test your toilet by placing a small amount of food coloring into your toilet tank overnight. If the dye shows up in the toilet bowl in the morning, you have a leak.

Clogged Drains:
Grease, cooking oil and other debris can coat the pipes of your kitchen sink, leading to serious plumbing problems. Place a strainer at the entrance of your drain to prevent foreign objects from entering your drain pipes.

Water Heater:
Though your water heater can operate for up to 20 years, if your unit decides to fail, you’re in for a disaster. Check your unit for signs of rusting or leaking. If you notice anything out of the ordinary, please give us a call.

Main Shutoff Valve:
Locate the main shutoff valve in your home or business. The main water valve controls the flow of all water into your home and it must work properly to prevent a disaster. To avoid severe flooding , find the main water valve, usually located at the lowest level of your home near the street, and test the valve to make sure it turns off properly.

With a little bit of knowledge, you’ll be able to better avoid last minute plumbing disasters.
