plumber talking to homeowner in Corona, CA

We at A.M. Plumbing & Rooter will never think twice about sending our best plumber in Corona, CA to your doorstep to help with any plumbing issues that crop up in your home. But while that is the case, it’s also essential to know a few basics about your plumbing system so that you can prevent any major problems from arising in the first place. Here are a few tips that any plumber would be glad to share with you.

Be Familiar with the Location of Your Main Shutoff Valve

This will prove helpful when dealing with an emergency plumbing situation. Turning off your home’s main water supply can prevent further damage in the face of a burst pipe or a major leak. Locating this valve is easy – it’s usually near the front of your property, where your home’s main water line enters the house from outside.

Never Overtighten Fittings

As a homeowner, it’s only natural that there are some plumbing repairs you might want to take care of yourself. However, many plumbing problems begin with DIY plumbing projects gone wrong. Among those are issues caused by overtightened fittings. Plumbing fittings don’t require much force when you tighten them and can suffer damage if you go too far.

Never Pour Grease Down the Drain

It’s simple enough to remember, but as it seems, also equally easy to ignore. Grease, fats, and oil congeal and stick to the pipes as they travel through your plumbing system, causing significant blockages and clogs. Nothing your local plumbing company can’t resolve, but it’s still better to avoid this problem altogether.

Taking proper care of your plumbing system can save you time and money in the long run. But in cases that call for professional plumbing services, you can count on A.M. Plumbing & Rooter to come to your aid and get the job done right. Contact us today to request a service visit.
