What Homeowners Need to Know
Just like drivers should always know where their car’s emergency brake is, homeowners should know a few things about their home’s plumbing system. As a leading plumbing expert in the Sacramento area, we pride ourselves on being able to deliver excellent customer service with quality workmanship. Beutler Air Conditioning & Plumbing is always here for you when you need us, even after hours in case of an emergency. We’d like to share with you four important “need-to-knows” for our homeowners, just in case:
- Main water shut-off valve: The location of your main water shut-off valve is probably the most vital information to have on hand at all times. Make sure that you and capable family members know exactly where to shut off the water supply should they need to. Burst pipes and other problems can quickly fill your home with water unless you can stop it at the source.
- Emergency shut-off for the toilet: Toilet overflowing is one of the most common plumbing problems in any household. There are numerous reasons why it happens, from a substantial clog in the siphon to a deeper issue with your drainpipe, but knowing where the emergency shut-off valve for your toilet is a must to prevent it from getting out of control.
- Water pressure: Residential water pressure needs to be held at a consistent rate. If it becomes too high, then it can actually damage your plumbing. Knowing what your pressure is allows you to monitor any changes.
- Location of your sewer and water lines: Thinking of having some work done on your property? Make sure you know exactly where your sewer and water lines are located. This allows you to plan any outdoor renovations accordingly.
