Four Things About Plumbing

Even though you can always rely on the qualified plumbing professionals if you are unsure about something, there are a few basic things that most people have to know about their plumbing. These are four of the basic facts that most people should know.

Four Things You Should Know About Your Plumbing

1. Know how to shut off your water

Most of the time, you will be able to shut the water off to your home at the meter. The meter is where your water comes into the home, and there might be a separate shut off in the house and at the meter. You should know where these valves are and how you operate them. This is important to know in case of a major leakage, because otherwise you will have more flooding damage than was necessary.

2. Learn how to read the water meter and the water bill

You want to make sure that you are not being charged more than you should have to pay. Make sure that you know how to read your water bill and your water meter. The water company will always be more than happy to explain anything that might be unclear on your water bill.

3. Know how the water coming into your home

You should always keep the water pressure under 80 psi. The primary reason that people have plumbing leaks in their home is because of high water pressure. You can buy a water pressure gauge relatively cheaply, and it can save you a great deal of money. If you are not sure how to check it yourself, you can always ask the water company to check it for you.

4. Calling the professionals

Even if you have a decent understanding of your home plumbing, chances are that you will still run into things that you do not understand. In that event, make sure that you call the professionals at Dr. Pipe Drain and Plumbing Services. They know how to handle any plumbing issue and they will be able to assist you quickly and efficiently.
