Plumbing Tips & Tricks
Having professionals clean our new home saves us so much time and our house looks fabulous! Everything smells fresh and clean.Janet Green
Silence Loud Stainless-Steel Sinks
Does it sound like a you are hosting a chariot race in your kitchen every time you rinse the dishes? Stainless steel sinks are popular because they are sleek and easy to clean. However, they can be extremely noisy. To subdue the thundering roars, fill the space between the basins with expanding foam spray.
How to Keep Your Sink Sprayer from Getting Snagged
Does the hose to your kitchen sink sprayer get caught up easily underneath the cabinet? Attach foam insulation around the pipes and shutoff valves underneath the sink. This will help the sprayer hose easily slide around.
Recover Hard Objects with a Shop Vacuum
Almost every parent must deal with a Lego or toothbrush that has been flushed down the toilet or dropped into the sink drain. In certain cases, this type of debris can be driven deeper into your pipes when using a plunger. Next time opt for a wet/dry shop vacuum that can quickly suction the water and any stray materials.
Fill Up a Bucket of Water Before Working on Toilet Related Plumbing Issues
It is always a good idea to shut off the water supply when working on a plumbing repair. However, many homeowners find it frustrating to deal with toilet related problems, because they must keep turning the supply off and on to test the results of their work. Instead, fill up a bucket or two with water before shutting off the water. This will allow you to flush the toilet a few times without unnecessary trouble.
Take Pictures of the Inside of Your Walls During Construction or Renovation Projects
Locating pipes behind your walls or beneath your flooring can be a challenge, particularly when you are trying to pinpoint a leak. If you are lucky enough to have access to your home or commercial property during construction or in the middle of a renovation project, then take a few pictures before the drywall or flooring is installed. This can offer a quick visual reference for pipes and other behind the scenes components like electrical wiring.
