Know your water pressure.
A small pressure gauge is always a good investment – and they’re not even that expensive. Ideally, the water pressure should be no more than 80psi; stronger than this and your pipes and fixtures can get damaged.
Know where your waste goes and where the clean-out plugs are.
Some homes have septic tanks, others are connected to the sewers. Either way, there are clean-out plugs that can help you in case of a clog or a backflow.
Know your equipment.
You don’t have to be an expert on plumbing fixtures but it is important that you know how old your fixtures, pipes, and heaters are. If your plumbing is older than 10 years, you have to figure out whether it is more efficient to do preventive maintenance or to invest in new ones altogether.
Keep an eye on your heater.
Your leaking heater is as good as a dead one so have it replaced at once before it floods your basement/garage. A pan underneath the heater is always a wise investment too.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding any of your HVAC or plumbing needs please feel free to call your friends at Green Apple Mechanical NJ toll-free at 888-611-7191
