D.I.Y. Plumbing Tips

Care for your plumbing system is our top priority. Because we put value in taking care of your place, here are some simple things you can do to make plumbing easier:

Leaks and emergency repair situations
Shut off the valve, the appliance or the gas supply, and contact us for plumbing assistance so we can fix the problem right away. Call for assistance form licensed plumbers only, and do not try to tweak anything else unless you are quite certain about what it does.

‘Small’ problems – repair them early.
Avoid major and costly repairs by fixing small leaks or loose equipment immediately. Temporary or quick-fixing may solve the problem short-term, but use this time to get a licensed plumber who will fix the damages before it breaks again.

Water and energy conservation
There are several ways to reduce your water and energy consumption. This would be a good investment since it saves both money and the environment in the long run. We would be happy to help and give expert advice on what go green modifications can be done for a more environment-friendly plumbing system.

Know where your pipes and other key areas are
Even before any trouble occurs, we suggest that you take note of where the shut off valve or other important switches are so that it would not be difficult to find during emergencies. A strong magnet could be used to find the location of pipes. You may also take a photo of your pipes during construction or remodelling just so we could have a clearer image of where they are and how it exactly looks like.
