4 Things You Need to Know About Your Plumbing

When it comes to your home’s plumbing system, there are certain things you need to know. Although we do want you to know these things about your plumbing system, we don’t expect you to know any of this information without the help of professionals like ours. If you have questions, then our team members have answers for you.

We have some of the best plumbers in Springfield, PA. We’re going to walk through four of the most important things you need to know about your home’s plumbing system. These four things will make all the difference in your home’s plumbing. They’ll keep you safe, help you improve the quality of your home, and even save you money. Here are four things you should consider…

1. Where Your Shut-Off Valve Is

Do you know where your home’s shut-off valve is? There’s a main shut-off valve in your home and there are individual shut-off valves for most of your appliances. We can start small with the individual ones. For something like your washer, the handle is normally behind the washer itself near the wall. For the toilet, it’s typically down low toward the base of the system close to the wall on the feed line. 

Your home’s main water shut-off valve differs from home to home. If you’re like many people here and you have a basement, then the main shut-off valve is likely near the home’s foundation in this area. If you’re having trouble locating yours, one of our team members can help you find it. 

2. What’s Considered Emergency Plumbing

It’s important to know what’s considered emergency plumbing. It’s the easiest way to avoid severe water damage and other extreme plumbing issues. Emergency plumbing services include:

  • No running water
  • A leak you can’t control 
  • Water damage
  • A pipe freeze
  • A burst pipe
  • A sewer backup

Any problems that you have related to these issues can cause real trouble. We’ll help you fix these issues.

3. Your Water Quality

Is your water quality in good shape? Sometimes you might have your sneaking suspicions that things are going wrong. If you look at the water you’ve poured from a tap and notice debris floating around in it or even discolored water, then we suggest that you have one of our professionals check on your home’s water quality. We can take a look into your pipes with our video pipe inspection services. We prefer this method because it’s easy on your pipes but extremely precise when it comes to spotting clog-causing debris. 

4. The Integrity of Your Plumbing 

Are you certain about the integrity of your home’s plumbing system? What we’re talking about here is the potential for leaks and other plumbing issues. We encourage regular inspections from a professional plumber because it keeps water damage and other disastrous plumbing issues at bay. Our plumbers are always here to provide you with this type of service. We’re around for routine plumbing work and 24/7 emergency service.
