Three Things to Check in Your Plumbing System

Miami-plumber-serviceI’ve had a chance to talk to with a few licensed Miami plumbers from Douglas Orr Plumbing 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:

  1. Ensure your overflow holes are open. Release flood openings when performing periodic checks for other problems and issues that might need to be serviced.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!

Three Helpful Tips I Learned from My Local Plumber

Plumber Welding PipeYou’ll find that unexpected issues seem to arise when coping with plumbing for your Dade County residence.  Some of these matters can be fixed with ease, while others can be more complex.

Before calling Plumbers911 it is essential that you are educated on basic piping maintenance so that the trouble can be addressed in a timely manner.

Here are three helpful tips I got:

1.  Regular maintenance is imperative if you wish to prevent future leaks.  A leak that is ignored may squander a big amount of water as much as a hundred fifty gallons per day!  Regular safeguarding can avoid wear and tear.

2.  Residential plumbing involves more skill than merely redirecting water from point A to B. Frequently, It is necessary to repair or clean water lines. You may encounter various issues, big and small, but if these situations become too heavy to handle, then contact a plumbing professional to manage these for you.

3.  Based from experience, it’s better to be prepared than to resolve problems when they’re already there! Always check your plumbing for splits and leaks.  That means lesser expenses and lesser plumber visits. (*wink)
