Locate your water main shut off valve:

One of the first things you should do when moving into a new home is locate where your water main shut off valve is. This is so in the event of a plumbing emergency, you will know exactly where to go to cut off the water supply in your home. The last thing you need during an emergency pipe leak is to frantically search all around your house for a shut off valve. There is already a plumbing emergency, you do not want gallons and gallons of water flooding your home and destroying all of your precious belongings and damaging your home. You may find the main water shut off valve in the basement or crawl space below your house. The main shut off valve will shut off the water within the whole house very quickly and give you the proper time to address the problem without a rush of water filling your home.

Keep your shower drain clean:
Keeping your shower clean can go along way to avoiding serious plumbing problems. Do yourself a favor and take the small amount of time required to clear that hair and debris from the shower. Additionally, scheduling routine maintenance a few times a year can be beneficial to avoiding serious drainage problems down the road. There are also options you can invest in for very little that will serve as a filter for your drain and catch hair and other materials from going down the drain to cause clogs.


Avoid drain cleaners:
Instead of using highly toxic drain cleaners to unclog a pipe, contact Red Lion Plumbing.
