Preventing Plumbing Problems Before an Emergency.

Now that spring has sprung here are some tips, courtesy of AquaTech plumbing to possibly prevent a more serious situation:

When was the last time you checked all of the faucets inside and outside your home for drips and leaks?

Place a half dozen or so drops of food coloring in your toilet tanks. Leave the toilets alone for a half hour or more. Come back and check to see if the water in the bowl of any of the toilets has become tinted with the food-coloring dye from the tank. If it has, you've got a leak between the tank and the bowl.

Turn on all valves under any sinks and toilets to make sure they work with ease and won't stick. 

Make sure the temperature on your water heater is not set to more than 120 degrees. This will not only prevent burns but also reduce energy consumption.

This one seems obvious, but many people are too lazy or incapable to clean out any yard drains, downspouts, and gutters.  If you can’t do it yourself see if you can find a more able body to do it for you.

Above all trust the plumbing experts at AquaTech Plumbing for all of your plumbing needs.  If you live in the Naperville-Plainfield-Aurora, Geneva, Batavia, St. Charles, or Wheaton, Winfield, Warrenville, Glen Ellyn area AquaTech IS your neighborhood plumber…and that is all you need to know.  Call them any time at 630-416-3555, 630-377-9555, or 630-462-3555 for assistance for all of your plumbing needs.
