Things you Should Know About Plumbing — 5 Helpful Tips

You may be thinking “I’m not a plumber, why would I need to know anything about plumbing?”. We’re not suggesting you take on a new profession, but here are a few things everyone should know about plumbing.

1. Shut-off Valves
You should always know the location of your home’s shut-off valves. In case of emergency, you should know where your shut-off valves are to avoid potential flooding and water damage.

2. Pipes
Know where the pipes in your home are located. When you decide to nail a photo to your wall or hang some shelving, make sure you aren’t risking a pipe puncture in the process

3. Drains
Know how your drains work and what you can and can’t flush down your drain. Avoid things like…
• Pasta
• Rice or other grains
• Coffee grounds
• Cooking oil
• Butter
• Egg shells
• Flour
4. Plunger
Know how and when to use your plunger. Plungers can be used to unclog toilets and to remove clogs in sink drains. Invest in a high-quality plunger that will get the job done right.

5. Leaks
A tiny leak can mean a big problem. If you notice a leak, don’t ignore it! You may be ignoring water damage that you hadn’t even realized was there.
