Stopping A Flood Quickly!

 
Know where to go when trouble happens. Should plumbing fail, will you know how to stop the flood? Locate the main shut-off valve for the home water supply. If it's in a dark, hidden, or hard-to-reach place, gather any tools you'll need for a quick shut-off, and store them nearby. There's nothing like the frustration of a missing flashlight or a misplaced shut-off key when water's pouring down the stairs from a broken pipe.
 

Garbage Disposal and Washing Machine Care in the Summer

With all of the cookouts, celebrations, and swimming pool get-togethers, the summer is very brutal towards your disposal.
To preserve its life and efficiency, you should always be very conscientious of what you put down there.
The garbage disposal is not as durable as you may think.
Avoid placing large or fibrous items down the drain, and always run cold water for a few seconds before and after you turn on the disposal.
With regards to the washing machine, because there is a dramatic increase in outdoor activities during the summer, clothes need washing that much more.

Summer Plumbing & Heating tips

Most people breathe a sigh of relief when they are able to turn off their heating for the summer. But not needing to use your home heating system for a few months doesn't mean you should forget all about it. The summer is the best time to have your boiler serviced, get any pipe repairs done, add an extra radiator to eliminate a cold spot, or just check that everything's in perfect working order.
Paying for a thorough check of your hot water and heating system in the summer could save you money next winter if it reveals any efficiency problems.
