TOILETS:
  • Do not use your toilet as a wastebasket. Never flush cotton swabs, diapers, sanitary products, paper towels, hair, dental floss or Q-tips. These items will not easily dissolve and are responsible for most clogs.
  • Make sure toilets flush properly. If handle must be held down for a thorough flush or jiggled to stop the water from running, you may need to replace worn tank parts.
  • Check toilets for hidden leaks. Add about ten drops of food coloring in the tank. If the tank is leaking, the same color will appear in the bowl within about five minutes.
VALVES:
  • It is extremely important to know the location of the main water shut-off valve.
  • Turn off main water when going on vacation or leaving the house for an extended amount of time.
  • Exercise water supply valves under sinks and toilets to prevent them from sticking.
WASHER:
  • Check all supply hoses for bulges, leaks or signs of weakness.
  • Consider replacing hoses every 5-8 years.
WATER HEATER:
  • Check the temperature setting on the water heater. It should be set between 120 and 125 degrees Fahrenheit to prevent scalding and reduce energy use.
  • Consider replacing a water heater that is 12-15 years old. (The first four numbers in the serial number represents the month and year it was manufactured)
GARBAGE DISPOSALS:
  • Turn on the water and garbage disposal before adding debris.
  • Never put hard to grind waste into the disposal. (Chicken skins, bones, carrots, celery, egg shells, potato skins or watermelon rind)
  • Try to avoid pouring fats or cooking oils down the drain, as they will only produce clogs in the drain.
  • Do not put coffee grounds down the kitchen sink drains.
  • Never pour boiling hot water down the kitchen sink drains.
