Water Damage Mitigation – Plumbing

Did you know, water damage is one of the most costly and common disasters which can occur in your home? Each year, plumbing issues lead to millions of dollars in damages.  According to Plumbing Dynamics, a pipe leak with the thickness of a dime can result in 6,300 gallons of water waste per month.  Common plumbing issues include dripping faucets, low water pressure, running toilet, leaky pipes, or slow or clogged drains.  Taking steps to avoid plumbing issues can be quite simple, consider a few of these tips:

·    Do not flush items such as wipes, floss, hair, contacts, and other items, which could provoke clogs.

·    Fix leaks immediately, no matter how small.

·    Make sure you do not over-tighten fittings.

·    Use plumber’s tape to prevent leaks around fittings and joints.

·    Check for leaks frequently before they escalate and end up costing a lot of money to fix.
