Bluebonnets are blooming, and that means it's spring-cleaning time! In addition to wiping the baseboards and checking for dust bunnies, you might want to make certain your plumbing system is in tip-top shape with the following tips:
Inspect your toilet for visible for cracks and leaks. To find leaks you can't see use food coloring. Dye isn't just for Easter eggs – add 6 drops of food coloring to the toilet tank. If there is a leak, your bowl will have colored water in less than thirty minutes.
Make certain your toilet is flushing properly. If the handle is finicky and has to be jiggled just the right way, it's time to replace some parts. These parts are usually inexpensive and can save you money in the long run.
Survey your faucets for any leaks or drips. One faucet dripping three drips a minute wastes 1 kilogram a day, which is hard on both your wallet and the environment so give us a call.
