Plumbing Tips And Tricks

Everyone should know a little bit about plumbing, if for no other reason than to be able to stop a problem before it gets worse. In this article, we're going to give you some quick plumbing tips that pretty much anyone can use, no matter what sort of issue you may be facing at any point in time.


Always know where your main water turns off is.

You would be surprised how many people have absolutely no idea where their main water turn off is. Do you know where yours is? The biggest reason that you need to learn this is, if you have a plumbing problem that comes up or you're trying to do something like a remodel in your bathroom or kitchen, you want to be able to turn the water off. Otherwise, the water is going to end up making a huge mess and you're going to have much more of a headache than when you actually went and started the job in question.

Have a plunger available for minor clogs.

Minor clogs in the shower, sink, and toilet are all easy enough for you to take care of yourself. Many times, you just need a good plunger that is going to be able to deal with the job without a lot of issues. A little bit of push and pressure and you're going to be able to get most clogs to come loose and come up. It's a little harder with showers (since the pipe is a bit longer and the clog will be a little deeper), but with a bit of "oomph" behind it, you're going to be able to clear those out with next to no problems.

Learn where the filters are for your sinks and showers.

Did you know that there's a little spot in your sink and/or shower that has what looks like a little net in it? This little filter has a twofold purpose - it makes sure that none of the wastewater comes back up into your sink or shower, but it also makes sure that large chunks of debris don't get into your pipes either. Usually, you can access this area rather simply; it's usually located right underneath the sink. Have a bucket underneath when you open it (there may be water) but then use a gloved hand to take out any clogging that may be in that spot.


Get a small tool kit in case there's an issue.

Every home should have a tool kit, and not just for plumbing purposes either - tool kits can take care of everything from the car, to chairs and tables, and anything else that you can imagine. You don't need an especially large tool kit to be able to take care of everything, but you at least should get a small tool kit that has most of the basics (hammers, wrenches, etc.). Go to your local hardware store and ask them about the tool boxes that they recommend for those who only want them for basic household repairs.

If the problem is too big, call in Evanston plumbing services.

Now, don't try to be a superhero. A lot of people will, in their quest to try and save some money, try to do some larger problems on their own. This could have a lot of negative results, including making larger messes, causing you to break the pipe or sink even more than it's already broken, or injuring yourself. So, if you have any doubt about your ability to deal with a potential plumbing issue, then err on the side of caution and call in our Evanston plumbing services to take care of it for you instead.

If you don't feel comfortable doing anything that we've talked about above, or you think that the problem is going to be too big for you to handle appropriately, then you're going to want to call our Evanston plumbing services to take care of all of your needs. We can help you with everything that you need and we have services that can come to you almost any time of day. Just give us a call today to learn more and to get the help that you need.

Plumbing basics

Four basic plumbing tasks are essential for everyone who rents an apartment or owns a home or business. By learning a few plumbing tips, Denton area residents can avoid many major plumbing problems and know better when to call on the services of a professional plumber.

Clean Drains

Drain cleaning is a must in every building because the drain system has a frequent clogging tendency, not only due to grime and food but also from sediment in the pipes. You have to maintain a regular sewer cleaning service. In this case, the plumbers usually opt for the hydro-jetting technique when the plumber's snake or chemical treatments are unsuccessful at washing out hard sediment layers or tree roots. Hydro-jetting is somewhat like power washing, which pushes the water under extreme pressure (minimum 20 gallons a minute), blasting the sewer walls and drain.

Detect Leaks

The old pipes tend to wear away with age and start developing leaks. It is especially common to see this if the building was constructed between 1978 and 1995. At that time, water pipes were manufactured from Poly Butylenes, which do not endure over time. This can be dangerous because if the pipe suddenly bursts, you will have serious flooding in your home. Thus, if you have an unexpectedly higher water bills or hear an unusual swooshing sound, it might be a leak. In such case, call a professional plumber immediately for leak detection.


Tankless Water Heaters

Most commercial building managers today prefer tankless water heaters over the conventional ones because tankless water heaters can lower your energy bill by a minimum of 20 percent. A traditional heater heats up a huge amount of water (almost 70 gallons) every day whether you use it or not. Tankless water heaters only heat when you need the hot water, as there is no tank to store the excess. A tankless water heating system can run on gas or electric, and its units are centrally situated under your sink or within a nearby closet. Contact an experienced Denton plumber who has a solid reputation to help you select the perfect tankless water heater and complete a trouble-free installation.


Faucet installation is a basic plumbing fixture found in any apartment, home or business. Sometimes you need to install a new faucet, or just repair an existing tap. Professional plumbers are armed with the proper expertise and tools to do all types of faucet installations and repairs. Often, people prefer decorative plumbing fixtures. These unique faucet designs may not be easy to install on your own, however. For flawless installation of decorative plumbing fixtures like designer faucets, shower heads, and sinks, you should always trust experienced plumbing professionals.
