If you hear mysterious sounds when turning your faucet on or off, get an inspection to track down the source. Unusual sounds often indicate pipe supports are deteriorating and an unsecured pipe is likely to burst. AND it's annoying........
If you don’t know the path of the buried sewage pipe across your yard, ask a plumber to show you. Avoid planting trees near the pipe to prevent tree root intrusion, a frequent cause of sewage blockage and backups.
Inspect your plumbing annually. Just as you change the batteries in your smoke detectors each year, you should inspect your water pipes and fittings yearly, by doing so you could prevent thousands of dollars in water damage. #plumberseattle
Don’t let your outdoor faucets freeze up in the winter. Unattach your garden hoses before freezing temperatures arrive, then close the shut-off valve on the pipes which lead to your outdoor faucets. #plumbingseattle
