Plumbing Checklist Every Homeowner Needs to Know

In reality, a flood waiting to happen is the mechanical system in your house.

Really Really?

Think about it for a moment, water is a natural resource and on this big blue world of ours it sustains every living thing including you. Water helps you in everything you do when properly mounted and routed in your house; from cooking your meals, to cleaning your home. And a lot more than that, you use water for almost anything. Have a look at Plumbing Chattanooga.

Water is also a purifier and if your plumbing is not properly treated, it may cause serious harm to our home and health. All you have to do is look at the new “Sandy,” storm that smashed into the East Coast.

Like your car, your plumbing system needs bi-annual maintenance checks on a regular basis.

You probably already know this, but when was the last time you tested your plumbing system? Six months ago? A year ago 1? Two years ago?

Yeah, don’t tell me, please, it’s been longer than that… If it has, please continue reading because you see in only a few moments that I have included a 10 point check list that every home owner (that’s you) & family members need to know and this list could save you a few hundred if not thousands of dollars of expensive home repairs very well.

When I was in grade school, we used to have fitness drills out of the blue for:

  • Fire-Fire
  • Earth Tremors
  • Tornado, and trust it or not,
  • Attack by Bomb

It’s up to you as a responsible home owner to educate yourself, your family, children (bet you didn’t even know kids as young as five can learn a few plumbing tips too!) Let’s not forget your pets…

All right, just kidding on that last one: Fido, I’d actually think that his own personal hydrant was a faulty water source.

All joking aside, being forewarned is forearmed, particularly when it comes to the plumbing system of your homes.

In particular, repairs can be very expensive if you have to fix a cabinet or part of your floor, so learning a few plumbing basics that can save you time and loads of money down the road is vital for you and everyone in your house.

I promised you a 10 point plumbing check-list earlier, to keep your investment secure and your insurance provider happy…
