Our Plumbing Tips

If you are looking for ways to make the most of your plumbing, you have come to the right place. At West Coast Plumbing & Water Treatment, we are dedicated to the safety and comfort of our customers at every turn. The following are some plumbing tips that come straight from our professional and experienced plumbers:

  • Keep a Pipe Clamp Handy. Because we are available 24/7, you won’t have to handle the entire repair on your own if your pipe springs a leak. However, while you wait for our prompt arrival, you may need to put a pipe clamp on the leak to stop the water temporarily.
  • Prevent Clogged Drains. To prevent having your drains clogged, our expert plumber suggests cleaning your shower and tub drain strainers out every time you use them. In addition, keep grease out of the kitchen sink, and rarely use chemical cleaners, if at all. Pop-up stoppers that are in many bathroom tubs and sinks should also be pulled out and cleaned at least once a week.
  • Look for Problems. To save money, our West Coast Plumbing & Water Treatment plumber suggests preventing costly leaks in the dishwasher by looking for water damage surrounding the machine. Around the sinks, you can re-caulk and check for a slow-draining pipe. When you notice any of these issues, contact West Coast Plumbing & Water Treatment immediately for less costly repairs.
  • Conserve Water. Save water and save money by turning off the water when it is not needed. Consider whether your shower or a bath would take up more water. Set a timer and limit yourself in the shower. Fill the sink to wash the dishes, rather than running the tap. Call us as soon as you notice a leak.

By following these and other plumbing tips, you will be able to prevent further damage while waiting for your plumber, can save yourself time and money by preventing clogged drains, can save money by checking for damage, and can conserve the water you use at home.
