I’ve had a chance to talk to with a few licensed Miami plumbers from Douglas Orr during their regular plumbing maintenance check.
They strongly advised that we keep an eye on leaks and stoppages. Here are three tips I learned during their visit:
- Ensure your overflow holes are open. Release flood openings when performing periodic checks for other problems and issues that might need to be serviced.
- Check any loosened tiles to see if they are indicative of water loss. Unfastened tiles are, in many cases, an indication of a drip; therefore, check to see if the tile gives at all when you apply force against it. You can anticipate problems more effectively if you pay attention to your tiles in advance.
- If you see a water line coming out of the discharge tube when setting up your new water heating unit, take the time to hook up that tube. It is undoubtedly a pipe for re-circulation, a process that enables your water to remain warm with little waste.
I’ve tried neglecting a thing or two and ended up paying a LOT after. It definitely pays to be careful and have scheduled maintenance checks instead of waiting for the problems to worsen. Just my two cents!
Anyway, stay tuned for more helpful tips that I’ve gathered from expert plumbers themselves!
