Top Consumer Tips for Maryland/Metro D.C. Plumbing Contractors:
(1) Locate your main water shut off valve to the whole house. This is very helpful in emergency plumbing situations (for example, in case of in-home flooding or major leaks).
(2) When going on vacation make sure to shut off your water to the whole house. This may prevent potential flooding from any leaks that may occur while you are out of town.
(3) Testing the water pressure to your home will identify any problems with the “pressure reducing valve” (PRV). You can check the water pressure yourself with a gauge purchased at a local home improvement store.
(4) Many types of clogs can be avoided by using common sense. Do not pour grease down the kitchen sink, and do not wash coffee grounds down the sink. Use chemical cleaners only when necessary. Do not flush larger items such as feminine hygiene products down the toilet.
(5) Thousands of people are scalded by tap water every year. The Gas Appliance Manufacturers Association recommends that the full-on hot water temperature at the faucet be set between 120° and 125° F.
(6) Use cold water when the disposal is operating. You can clean your garbage disposal by grinding ice cubes. When your disposal needs a little freshening, just grind some lemon peels. Of course, you should read your maintenance manual.
(7) Insulate those pipes before it gets cold! When temperatures are at or below freezing, running a steady drop of hot and cold water from your faucet’s may keep your pipes from freezing during cold weather.
(8) Make sure that vents (ventilating fans) are installed in your kitchen and baths. These rooms can produce a lot of moisture. Ventilating fans are great, but will be of no use if they are not turned on.
(9) Make the most of your plumbing service call. The plumber will usually be happy to take a look at your water heater, check your water pressure, show you how to shut off the water to your house, and other useful things without charge.
(10) Once a year, drain your water heater. This prevents build-up of sediment, which will help to prevent premature rusting.
