INCREASE SHOWER WATER PRESSURE
If it is leaking, you need to replace the washer. If the water spray seems erratic, the problem is likely mineral buildup. Clean the water outlets with a pin or remove the showerhead and soak it in something like CLR.
QUIET A NOISY TOILET
This is likely due to a restricted water flow or a defective ball-cock assembly. Check water flow to ensure there is no blockage. If not, replace your ball-cock assembly.
QUIET NOISY HOT WATER PIPES
Hot water pipes squeak due to the pipe moving in its strap. The friction causes the squeaking. To stop the noise, cushion it!
PREVENT PIPES FROM FREEZING
During very cold days and nights, keep a trickle of water running when the temperature reaches freezing temperatures.
ACCIDENTALLY DROP SOMETHING IN THE TOILET?
Retrieve it using a wet/dry shop vac. This makes for easy retrieval and simple cleanup.
LOWER YOUR WATER BILL
Adding an aerator to your faucet will reduce water usage by 50 percent!
