Gilbert Plumbing: Prevent Plumbing Problems

A plumbing problem can happen at anytime without warning.  Prevention can save you lots of time and money.  Most repairs are for drains that are clogged.  The main cause is usually from grease as it builds up over time. Sometimes there are products on the market that can assist in clearing the grease.  Hair is another clog that can be prevented by setting up strainers in your sinks and showers.

Outdoor Faucet Freezing Prevention:

Remember to detach all the outside hoses before the first freeze of the season.  Close the shutoff valve where the water builds up in the outdoor faucets to allow any remaining water in the lines to drain.  Reverse the process as soon as the temperature warms up.

Water Heater Prevention Tips:

Do not forget to check your water heater and softener before leaving for a vacation.  You can also turn off their individual shut off valves which will prevent them from leaking and causing water damage while you are away.

Toilet Leak Prevention

The easiest way to check for a toilet leak is to pour a small amount of food dye into the holding tank and leave it there overnight.  In the morning if you have any color in the basin,  then you know you have a leak.  If you use this easy method you will prevent possible plumbing problems or costly repairs later. So take a minute to try these helpful tips and don’t forget to call us at Eagle Services 480-659-4942 to schedule any of your plumbing problems.  We service Phoenix, Glendale, Mesa, Gilbert, Apache Junction, Chandler and many other surrounding Cities.

  1. Your should know the exact position of the valve as your home’s plumbing system can have different valves, but if you know the exact position then it can prevent your home from damage of thousands of dollars. There is one main water valve that controls all the water flow in your home and to prevent a disaster it must work properly. Old pipes need to be repaired depending on the age of your home and the water lines running to it as the pipes made from bygone materials are usually the major sources for clogs and leaks.
