Check Your Shut Off Valves!

Spring has sprung! It is time once again for that spring cleaning… don’t forget to check all of your fixture supply lines and shut off valves. It is always a good idea to turn your shut off valves that are under your toilet, sinks, washing machine, laundry tray (if you have one), then turn them back on. Check for any weeping, drips or leaks, make sure the valves turn on and off smoothly. You want the valves to work properly if you have to shut the water off in a hurry or for a simple repair. This is excellent preventative maintenance that most of us do not think about – until it is too late!

A Plumbing Must Have for Every Household

meter key D & F plumbing plumber portland or beaverton oregonHave you ever had a late night plumbing emergency where you had water running from somewhere?… you could hear it but not see it? Did you run around like crazy in the dark trying to find it so you could stop any water damage before it got too deep? One sure way to stop any more water damage is to turn the water to the house off at the main shut off near the street. Trying to find a wrench, finding the main valve, laying on your belly and reaching down in the dark to find the shut off valve is not fun… Especially in the rain or snow. That is why every home needs to have a “meter key”. This will save you time, worry, and possible extensive water damage. Don’t you deserve some peace of mind? You can get these anywhere plumbing supplies are sold. Do yourself a favor and get one.
