Summer is finally around the corner and with the warmer weather comes an increase in water usage by at least 25%. Although we will all use more water in the summer, there are some ways that you can avoid wasting water and money on your monthly bill!
How to Prevent a Clogged Drain
There are multiple ways to fix a clogged drain, but the best thing to do is try to prevent it from happening in the first place. Taking preventative measures when it comes to the plumbing in your home can save you money in the future.
In an event of a serious plumbing emergency such as a flood or a cracked pipe, do not try to fix the situation yourself because it could cause an even bigger problem. The only thing you should do is call a professional plumber and try to alleviate the issue as much as you can till the plumber arrives.
Radiant heating is a type of heating system that uses tubes to distribute heat throughout floors and walls of a building or room. Instead of having a radiator in every room in your home, radiant heating emits heat through the tubes and up through the floors, heating the floors beneath you. This increases the surface area of your heating system, making it more efficient.
Whenever we see that the water is not going down the drain and it is clogged, many of us reach for the liquid drain cleaner to fix the problem but that might actually do more harm than good. Even a plunger will help more than a drain cleaner most of the time!
The Five Things You Need to Know:
-Know how old the plumbing system is. If the plumbing system in the building/house is old compared to the other buildings nearby, it is more likely that you will have to repair or even replace the entire system because they could have corroded so much that the water pressure will get worse as the years go by.

Mold is a word that we do not like to hear. Although it is unappetizing to think about, it is imperative that every home or business owner understands the causes of mold and the ways to remedy it since an ongoing presence of mold can lead to dangerous health effects such as lung and other respiratory problems.
Fire sprinklers have saved many lives and buildings from being destroyed. Most people think that just having a fire alarm is enough, but in order to prevent the fire from spreading before the fire department can extinguish it themselves, it is best to have a sprinkler that is always ready to put out or stifle the fire.
To save on your water bill use high-efficient fixtures and tools
Water saving devices can be put inside the strainers of your faucets and your shower heads
A water saving device is a washer (with a pinhole) that reduces the amount of water that flows through it but also increases the pressure.
