PLUMBING ● EQUIPMENT
Can my Outside Faucets freeze?
Yes, Make sure the outside faucets are turned off in the winter and make sure you disconnect the outside hoses.
What can I do to try to prevent water problems?
If you’re going away for any length of time, like on vacation, turn off your water, and if on any of those days the temperature drops below freezing have someone check in on your house.
Is a Leaky Faucet or Toilet really a big deal?
Small drips can waste over eight gallons of water a day, and a continuously running toilet can waste more than 200 gallons of water daily. If you ignore them, you’ll pay for it when your water bill arrives.
Things to know:
-Don’t assume that every Mr. Fix-it advertising his services in the local paper or on Craig List is a licensed plumber.
-Know where your shutoff is for your home.
-The Flushable baby wipes are one of the main culprits for clogging pipes, they don’t break down the way toilet paper does.
