Helpful Tips

When using a garbage disposal, be sure to use plenty of cold water. Hot water will melt fat and grease which will later stick to the cooler drain pipe and eventually cause a nasty clog.

Use plenty of cold water which will solidify the grease and grind it into small particles that will flow out into the main sewer line.


Grind your old stale ice cubes from your freezer/ice maker in the garbage disposal to scour and clean the cutting blades and reduce foul odors from the disposal drain.


A leaky faucet with only 60 drips per minute will waste 5 gallons per day which equals 2082 gallons per year (that;s equal to 41 baths).

With today’s energy costs so high, imagine the cost of heating 2000 gallons of water and the sewer tax in addition to the water bill

Washer hose failure (at an average 70 lbs of pressure) can discharge a flood of up to 650 gallons of water per hour.

Always turn off the hot and cold water supply to the washer when not in use.

We can install braided stainless steel “no burst” washing machine hoses and ¼ turn valves for your extra protection.


Draining a quart or two of water from the drain valve at the bottom or your gas or electric hot water tank will improve efficiency and prolong the useful life of the tank by eliminating any sediment buildup from inside the tank.


Turn off the water faucet when brushing your teeth and save approximatly 1200 gallons per year. The average bathroom faucet runs at 2 gallons per minute. Turning it off when you brush your teeth is one of the easiest ways to save water.
