Plumbing Tips

Here are some plumbing tips.  You should inspect you water heater monthly.  Most people don’t pay attention to their water heater until you have no hot water.  Water heaters sometimes leak from the drain or relief valves, which are easy to replace.  If a leak is coming from the tank-watch out! Over the years of use the tank lining can rust.  The tank can sometimes rupture, causing an instant flood.  If your toilet keeps running, most likely the flapper is worn.  When the flapper wears out, it is allowing water to constantly seep into the bowl.  Before replacing it, run your finger around the opening that the flapper rests on.  Mineral deposits on the rim could prevent the flapper from sealing when the toilet is flushed.  If that’s the case, scrub the deposits away with the abrasive side of a sponge.  If that doesn’t work, it is time to replace the flapper.  De Hart Plumbing, serving Manhattan Kansas, Junction City Kansas and Wamego Kansas.  Plumbing Tips
