A very important aspect to know about your home is where your main shut off valve is located. This is the main valve in your home that is control of all the water that moves through pipes and comes in and out. This valve allows all water that is used in your home to either be flowing or shut off. In the event that there is a major line break or problem you can shut off the main valve most likely saving you from flooding and possible thousands of dollars of water damage in your home.
Tips For Your Water Heater
Most water heaters last anywhere from 10 to 15 years and knowing when to replace them can be tricky. An obvious sign of your water heater going bad is no hot water of course. Sometimes the pilot light being out or the circuit breaker being tripped can give people the impression their water heater is bad. A way to help extend the efficiency and life of your water heater when the internal parts are old and corroded is flushing it regularly. Another method is smelling or tasting the hot water and if it has a metallic taste this often means that the heater is close to breaking down. Also when looking at the water that comes out of the hot water faucet, if it appears rusty this can also be a sign that your heater may be about to die.
Remembering Outside Water Lines
Every year for those who live in seasonal climate locations there will be a large list of people who unfortunately forget or choose not to remove all of their outside hoses that connect to their outdoor faucets. In places that experience cold and freezing weather conditions not removing these outdoor hoses could result in the freezing of the water inside of the lines. This is very unwanted due to the fact that the water will expand when frozen which often leads to broken and cracked pipes anywhere the water gets to. Then when the weather breaks and its warm again you will probably need to have your lines fixed or replaced in order to have the use of your outdoor faucets costing you unwanted time and money to do so.
