3 Residential Plumbing Tips
When you encounter problems, the easiest thing to do is call your trusty neighborhood plumber. However, there are certain plumbing ordeals that you can handle yourself. Although this can be tricky, doing the dirty work yourself can save you a lot of time and money.
- Locate the Main Water Shut-off Valve - You must know where the control of the main source of water is located so that when a residential plumbing crisis crops up, you can switch off the main source to prevent more unwelcome water to invade your home.
- Slow-Draining Sinks – You will need to rent a snake unit from a local equipment rental company. You must be aware that this process would require some muscle to push down the snake into the vents. The drain clean outs, which are located at ground level, also need to be “snaked out”.
- Sink Faucets and Shower Heads That Give Out Low Volume of Water - Detach the head by rotating at the point of water flow. Once it has been disassembled, clean the inside screen from gravel and calcium so that water can freely flow again. Then reassemble.
