Avoid the Plumbing Blues with Preventative Home Maintenance.

Homeowners know that plumbing can be an expensive and time-consuming problem if things get out of hand.  That's why it's a good idea to take preventative measures to extend the life of your plumbing and to avoid unnecessary damage.

Here are some preventative tips that don't require an expert plumber.

Prevent Drain Clogs

  • Regular rinsing of the drains with hot water can help remove hair and debris that gradually collect.  Try to do this once a week.  Also, be sure to plunge any backed up drain as soon as possible to avoid further drain cleaning.
  • Likewise, plunge backed up drains as soon as possible.  By plunging small clogs, you'll avoid any major clog problems.
  • Use a hair stopper or drain protector.  This is especially useful over a shower drain and will keep hair where it belongs (out of your plumbing).

Leaving Town?

  • If you're going on a long trip and won't be using the water for an extended period of time, shut it off.  This way you will avoid the possibility of water damage that can result from a leak.  Better yet, have a professional check for leaks.  This way you'll avoid that damage no matter what.
  • Don't turn your heat off.  Keep your heat on low when you go on vacation, so that your water stays at a moving level and won't freeze.  Also, be sure to disconnect outdoor water hoses when it gets cold.  These simple actions will save your plumbing in the long run.

5 Benefits of Having a Tankless Water Heater

Considering going tankless??

Here are 5 benefits of having a Tankless Water Heater:

  1. Energy Efficient - Up to twenty percent of a home's energy use comes from heating water for things you do every day, like bathing, laundry, and washing dishes.  A standard water heater consumes energy round the clock to keep the water in its tank hot, but a tankless water heater only heats water when you need it. This reduces your carbon foot print by reducing the energy demand from natural gas or coal-burning power plants.  And because most tankless water heaters only electricity, they can easily run on electricity from renewable sources like wind or solar power.
  2. Money Saving - Tankless water heaters save a typical family anywhere from 11% to 69% off their hot water heating bill, because they are not continuously running like a conventional storage model.  And if you live in Southern California, you may qualify for a rebate of up to $200 when you replace a conventional tank-type water heater with an energy-efficient tankless heater.
  3. Continuous Hot Water - You'll never get a blast of cold water in the middle of a shower with a tankless water heater.  Often called, "on-demand water heating," tankless heaters only heat water as you need it.  Once the faucet is open, water flows into the heater where a sensor turns on the heating mechanism.  Water flows through the heating coils as it reaches the desired temperature.
  4. Space Saving - Tankless water heaters are small, and your plumber can mount it to your wall, unlike bulky conventional water heaters.  You gain a closet's worth of space in your basement or utility room.  And with outdoor tankless water heaters installed by your plumber, you do not have to worry about ventilation or any effect on the interior of your home.
  5. Low Maintenance - With a life expectancy of 20 years, tankless water heaters long outlast standard water heaters.  And since there is not tank, leaks and water damage become a thing of the past.
