Finding the right plumbing contractor

qualified plumbingEven 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.

 shut the water off 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.

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.

Most people do not realize how important it is to be able to shut off their gas. You should know where the gas supply comes into the building, and you should know where each gas-powered appliance is. If the issue is limited to a specific appliance, you can shut off the gas there rather than shut off the gas to the home altogether.

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.
