Keep Your Plumbing Protected!

Posted by admin on Feb 18, 2019 in Maintenance

Well, it looks like Punxsutawney Phil may have lied. Keep those foundation vents closed, and if you leave town, don’t turn off the heat to your home. You don’t want your pipes to freeze!  Also, if you use your hose bibs, take the hose off when you are done. This will allow the hose bib to drain properly and not freeze.

Football Games and Foundation Vents

Posted by admin on Oct 21, 2018 in Maintenance

Fall isn’t just about colorful leaves, football games, and Halloween, it’s also time to prepare your house and yard for winter.  Now is the time to make sure all of your pipes are insulated, close up your foundation vents, repair any leaking hose bibs, and blow out your sprinkler system.  This will keep your plumbing system from freezing when winter hits and prevent any unwanted surprises when it warms up next spring!

Trick or Treat?

Posted by admin on Oct 7, 2018 in Maintenance

Halloween is in a few weeks, and people are going to be carving up their best looking jack-0-lanterns.  Treat yourself to a working garbage disposal this fall by remembering to put any pumpkin seeds you don’t toast into the garbage.  It would be a real trick getting them out of there and could potentially ruin the disposal altogether.

Plumbing Prep for the Holidays

Posted by admin on Sep 23, 2018 in Maintenance

Summer is officially over, and there is a little time before the holidays begin and your house fills with friends and relatives.  Prepare now to take care of your small plumbing problems that may arise.  Make sure you have a plunger, pipe wrench, and consider a small drain snake to combat small clogs.  Don’t hesitate to call a professional for problems that are too large to handle, but the cost of few tools now will all prove to be cheaper than calling out your plumber for a clogged drain on Thanksgiving Day!

To Flush or Not to Flush?

Posted by admin on Mar 25, 2018 in Maintenance, Troubleshooting

That is the question!  Even though those flushable wipes say they are flushable, are they?  While cleaning, make-up removing, and baby wipes definitely should not be flushed, even wipes that state they are flushable can take longer to break down and can end up wreaking havoc on your plumbing system.  The additional time it takes them to break apart can lead to clogs, sewer back-ups, city sewer issues, and can require you to pump your septic system more often.  What may seem like a great invention to some, may not be as advantageous for your plumbing system or your bank account!
