After all, if you take care of your plumbing system, it will take care of you!
How to Show Your Plumbing System Some Love This Valentine’s Day
- Keep your pipes nice and toasty! Adding insulation to the pipes located in attics, basements, crawl spaces, garages, etc. is a great way to protect yourself against frozen pipes.
- Listen to your plumbing system’s needs! Listening is important in any relationship and your plumbing relationship is no different. Does your toilet sound like it is running longer than it should? Can you hear your faucet dripping at night? Is your water heater knocking or making a popping sound? These are cries for help from your plumbing system, it is best to not ignore them.
- Flush away the build-up! Once a year you should have your water heater flushed to keep it functioning properly. Minerals and debris accumulate in your water heater over time, which can cause it to malfunction or stop working altogether.
- Do not skip your annual plumbing maintenance and safety inspection! Think of annual maintenance like taking your plumbing system to couples counseling. It is a great way to a get ahead of any problems or issues that may arise. Call (866)844-3770 to schedule a plumbing inspection today!
