Have you ever imagined what your household would be like without a plumbing system? Having no running water or drainages would probably result in your home oozing with filth from left to right. And if that were the case in just your home, imagine what it would be like if it were your whole neighborhood or city even. Essentially, plumbing serves as the system in which water is transferred and distributed through pipes and fixtures into different homes and establishments. They are also able to transfer the waste out of your homes and cities, all without compromising the quality of nearby waterways.

Naturally, the convenience this service provides is coupled with a responsibility on our part as the residents. There are thus a few essentials one must know with regard to their plumbing.

  1. The source

Know the where’s and how’s with regard to your water source, and how to shut it off as well. Your source could either be located at the meter or in certain circumstances, a well. In terms of shutting if off, there are probably separate controls for it at the meter and within your household. Knowing the basics of your water source may prove to be handy when you’re dealing with a broken pipe or are planning a trip away for a few days.

 

  1. Reading your bill and meter

Knowing how to read your meter and bill will let you know if you are being charged properly. Your billing statement can also let you know of any leaks in your pipes, so that you’ll know if you’re throwing money down the drain (pun intended).

 

  1. Water pressure

High water pressure has proven to be the number one cause of leaks in pipes. In order to ensure that this does not occur in your plumbing system, monitor your water pressure to be at a constant level that is below 80 psi. You have the options of either purchasing your own pressure gauge or inquiring with your local service of its condition. A water tank is also

 

  1. Waste system

Clogging and drainage blocks are a problem often encountered in your plumbing system. You can solve these predicaments by knowing the type of waste system you have whether it’s through a sewage treatment plant or septic tank, and also studying its clean out points.

 

  1. Water heater

Apart from knowing how to shut off your water source, it is also important to note where to shut off the water source for your heater. Finding leaks in your heater can you leave you without any hot water. Shutting it off every now and then will help store some of the heated water for instances that you do encounter a leak.

 

  1. Fixture shut off valves

All of your sinks, faucets, and toilets have their own shut off valves. Knowing where they are will come in handy for whenever you encounter problems with any of those fixtures. You must also note however, that you are not to use them frequently as that may lead to a bigger problem. Only shut them off when it is most necessary for you to do so.

Like any other part of your household, your plumbing system is something you should maintain on a day-to-day basis. It may seem to grave a task having to handle meters, gauges and other plumbing materials, but taking the time to actually check all the above stated factors could save you the trouble from encountering heavy duty problems in the future. Do your plumbing and yourself a favor by checking up on it every now and again. If you find that you don’t really have the time to do so, Malabanan Siphoning Services can do the job for you.
