"10 Essential Plumbing Tips Every Homeowner Should Know"

* Know Where Your Main Shut-Off Valve Is:  In case of a plumbing emergency, like a burst pipe, knowing where the main shut-off valve is and how to turn it off can prevent serious water damage.

* Don't Ignore Leaks:  A small leak can waste a lot of water and money over time. Fix leaky faucets and pipes as soon as you notice them.

* Use Drain Strainers:  These handy tools help catch hair, food scraps, and other debris before they can clog your drains.

* Watch What You Flush:  Your toilet is not a trash can!  Only flush toilet paper and human waste.  Avoid flushing wipes, feminine hygiene products, or anything else that can clog the pipes.

* Don't Use Harsh Chemical Drain Cleaners:  These can damage your pipes and cause more problems in the long run.  Try a plunger or a drain snake to clear clogs first.

* Protect Your Pipes from Freezing:  If you live in an area that gets cold winters, insulate exposed pipes to prevent them from freezing and bursting.

* Take Care of Your Garbage Disposal:  Avoid putting grease, coffee grounds, or eggshells down the drain, as these can cause clogs.

* Schedule Regular Drain Cleaning:  Even if you don't have any clogs, it's a good idea to have your drains professionally cleaned every few years to prevent future problems.

* Invest in a Water Pressure Gauge:  Monitoring your water pressure can help you identify potential problems early on.  High water pressure can damage pipes and fixtures, while low water pressure can be inconvenient.

* Know When to Call a Plumber:  For complex plumbing problems, it's always best to call a professional plumber.  They have the training and experience to fix the problem quickly and efficiently.
