Winter can bring a variety of plumbing issues such as, frozen pipes, flooding, and leaks. As a residential and/or commercial property owner you can help minimize mishaps by insulating your pipes.
If water freezes within a pipe it will expand, crack and burst, leaving you with a mess! Generally, a frozen pipe will occur in places like attics, garages, crawl spaces, basements and near outside walls. Foam padding sleeves or insulating (heat) tape will guard your pipes from the winter chill. It’s also not a bad idea to check on your pipes every so often to ensure that no ice or frost is accumulating, especially during a long cold snap.
In case of a water emergency it’s important that everyone in your household or key personnel at your business know where to find the main water valve (usually next to the water meter). This knowledge can save you from further disasters like a flooded room.

I don't know about you guys, but the #1 plumbing issue I have is the tub drain getting clogged. Seems it's not a big fan of my hair. Gross, but a very real issue...especially if you've got a lot of long haired beauties in the house. I was almost to the point of purchasing stock in a drain cleaner company, but then I found my savior...the OXO Good Grip Silicone Drain Protector. This little gem has saved my pipes, my gag reflex, and nature from the chemicals I was dumping in the water. So easy to use! I found it on Amazon for under $10. The same company makes different styles to accommodate different drain types. If you've got a hair monster give this try! Have a great weekend! K

A big shout out to all the dads on this Father's Day weekend. To celebrate I'd like to add to your "honey do list"...you can easily handle this one with a beer in hand...inspect your washing machine. Make sure the water supply hoses and drain tube look good and have secure connections, provide space between the wall and machine so the hoses cannot get pinched, and make sure it is level. With the kids home and the pool open you are sure to have a boat load of laundry over the summer. This quick & easy project will save you from a water clean-up or more expensive project in the future. If you find your supply spigots need some TLC give us a call!

Happy Mother's Day to all of you beautiful moms!

With the great weather forecast for the weekend many of you will be firing up the grill. Be careful of what you put down your garbage disposal after your cookouts. Most disposals are not equipped to handle cornhusks, celery, banana peels and other fibrous or “stringy” foods. Some other items to stay away from are fats or cooking oils because they form clots in the pipes. Run cold water at full pressure for 15 seconds before and after you put anything down the disposal to flush it through. Never put instant stuffing, potato mixes or similar “just-add-water” foods down the drain—they’ll create an instant clog when you add water.

Some simple tips to keep your disposal healthy:
Put ice cubes in the disposal to sharpen the blades between uses. Grind up citrus fruits in the disposal for a fresh citrus smell. Use a specially designed disposal brush to remove hard to reach deposits that cause odors and food build-up. Always be sure to cut the power by unplugging or flipping the fuse before you perform any deep sink drain diving!

Do you embrace spring showers? I'm not talking about running through puddles or singing in the rain...I'm talking about harvesting it! Why not when it's free! Rain Barrels aren't just a new "trend", they date back as far as 850BC and offer a long list of benefits. Check out this great site www.rainbarrelguide.com.

Happy Spring Everyone! I'm sure you're already making your outdoor projects list so I'd like to add something for you. Inspect your outdoor water spigot(s). A leaking spigot, otherwise referred to as silcock, can be an expensive problem if ignored. It can cause interior and exterior damages and rack up the utility bill. If you find yourself with a leaky spigot call us!
