Tips

  • Drain water heater once a year to pro-long life.
  • Do not over tighten faucets.
  • Do not let your faucets run while brushing your teeth.
  • Keep lids on toilets down to stop, foreign objects like toys from being deposited.
  • Take all outside garden hoses off when not in use, especially in the winter.
  • Test sump pumps once a month by pouring a bucket of water in to make sure the pump is working.
  • Watch how high the thermostat is set on water heater. Too high and it could burn someone. If you can hold your hand under the tap for seven seconds without removing it – water temperature is okay.
  • Turn off water while on vacation.
  • Replace washer hoses every 5-10 years.
  • Be very careful pouring drain cleaner down drains.
  • Insure you have heat tape on exposed piping. Check heat tape for function.
  • On very cold winter days, open up base cabinet and kitchen base cabinet doors.
  • Always unplug garbage disposal before working on it.
  • Exercise main stop every six months.
  • Vacuum around the base of water heaters to remove dust.
