Plumbing Maintenance Checklist

Know where your main shut off valve for your house’s water is located. Your repairs may be able to wait until morning, and by turning off the main water source, you can wait until the next day to call a worker. This can save money, as most contractors charge a lot more during after hours.

It is not something to be ignored because weak water pressure does not only waste your time and energy, it also increases your water bill as well. Most of the time however, you do not have to go see a repairman to fix this problem; you only have to locate its unclean and dirt clogged filter and clean it. To find it, remove the cold water hose and have something ready beneath it to catch water. Then, with a pair of tweezers, remove the filter from the hole where you disconnected the hose. Clean it with water until it is clear and then put it back. Then, put the hose back. You will notice that the water pressure is back to normal.

Stringy and tough foods like celery, banana peels and chicken skin won’t grind well and clog the plumbing. Make sure that you put these items in the regular trash can, rather than subjecting your garbage disposal to them.

Perhaps because it is not so glamorous the washing of trucks. But if you consider that you get paid per vehicle and they are all in a row the efficiency of your production rate is the real key to making money at it.

The wobble, axial and the camshaft are the basic pump models of a pressure-washing system. The first propeller model has lower performance and efficiency. This is because it produces on each stroke a piston spring resistance. The same thing is the case on axial propeller models. The performance and efficiency are also affected due to the resistance. Though they are almost similar to each other, the axial propeller has a much larger cylinders and oil reservoir. It also has large bearings to allow the propeller system to run cooler. It can help generate higher PSI and GPM ratings.

Whether the job is an emergency or not, try to call someone you know, especially if it is an after-hours situation. Having a prior work relationship with a contractor will help ensure hiring someone you can trust.

Low water pressure – find your pressure regulator and adjust it to allow higher pressure. It should be near the valve that shuts off water to the entire house.

Like the 1st Stage and 2nd Stage Filters, the 3rd Stage Filter removes chlorine, chemicals, taste and odor that could be unhealthy to you and your family. It also has an ideal high flow applications. For purer water, it improves carbon contact time. Also, for the maximum chemical contaminant removal it has the highest grade coconut shell carbon.
