5 Helpful Tips You may be thinking “I’m not a plumber, why would I need to know anything about plumbing?”. We’re not suggesting you take on a new profession, but here are a few things everyone should know about plumbing.
1. Shut-off Valves
You should always know the location of your home’s shut-off valves. In case of emergency, you should know where your shut-off valves are to avoid potential flooding and water damage.
Know where the pipes in your home are located. When you decide to nail a photo to your wall or hang some shelving, make sure you aren’t risking a pipe puncture in the process
Know how your drains work and what you can and can’t flush down your drain. Avoid things like…
Rice or other grains
Know how and when to use your plunger. Plungers can be used to unclog toilets and to remove clogs in sink drains. Invest in a high-quality plunger that will get the job done right.
