Money saving Tips and Hints
Emergency Shutoff - Don’t let an emergency be the time you have to figure out where your main shut off valve is located. Find it before things go wrong. Teach your children where all the shut off valves are and how to use them. Even a child can prevent a lot of damage if they know how to shut off the water flow.
Household Flooding – Stay away from flooding if there any electricity around.
Toilet - Check for toilet leaks that might waste water and raise your water bill. Teach your young about water conservation by letting them help you put a few drops of food coloring in your toilet tank. If colored water shows up in your bowl between flushes, you have a leak that is costing you money.
Faucet - Your faucet’s aerator (the little screen thing on the end of the spout) can become clogged with debris from your water pipes. If you have restricted water flow from one faucet, before you call a plumber, unscrew the aerator, remove the washer, wash the aerator and screw it back in and see if this made a difference.
Garbage Disposal - Run ice through your garbage disposal it will keep the blades clean and sharp. Follow that up with a lemon and it will sanitize your garbage disposal. Your kitchen will smell great! Before you call a plumber to repair your garbage disposal, check your breaker box and press the red, reset button on the base of the unit.
