Plumbing Tips For New Homeowners

When you’re a first-time homeowner, you may have a lot of mixed emotions. While it’s a great feeling to no longer have to pay rent, you may suddenly realize that you’re responsible for the plumbing when things go wrong. At Affordable Service, we suggest you be proactive and take the time to learn about your plumbing, HVAC, and the other home utilities.

Find Your Home’s Main Water Shut Off Valve

If you have a water leak, the first thing you should do is shut off the main water valve. It’s typically outside of the house, inside a utility box, or in the crawl space or basement. Turn the knob clockwise. This should turn off all of the water in your home.

Learn How To Handle Simple Plumbing Problems

When it comes to home plumbing issues, there are some things you can fix yourself. Some examples are clogged toilets and leaky kitchen sink pipes. You’ll want to buy a plunger and some basic plumbing tools to have handy. If you’re not mechanically inclined or the issue can’t be fixed on your own, we suggest reaching out to the experts. Our technicians are available 24/7 for your plumbing emergencies.

Know What Not To Put Down Your Drain

Garbage disposals are a great tool, but they can’t handle certain types of waste like eggshells, coffee grounds or starchy foods. It’s important to be mindful of what you are throwing down your sink. There are also ways to keep your toilet from getting backed up. We recommend keeping items like hygiene products, diapers and cat litter out of the bowl. Grease, paint, and chemicals should also never be put down any pipes if you want your system to continue running smoothly.

As you can see, there are preventative measures you can take to keep your plumbing running smoothly and your new home feeling new. When a plumbing emergency does arise, contact the experts at Affordable Service for friendly and fast service!
