Your home’s plumbing has two systems which both need to be working properly in order for your home to function smoothly. There’s the water main coming into your home, which connects to all the faucets and fixtures with water lines. And then there’s the drainage system. This includes every drain, the pipes that carry the drain water away, and the sewer line they all lead to.

Drain problems can lead to some very unpleasant consequences, potentially even as bad as sewage backing up into your tubs and sinks! To prevent these problems, your drains and sewer line need occasional check-ups and cleanings.

How can you tell if it’s time for a drain cleaning? Well, the smell might give you a clue, and there are some other signs to watch out for as well.

How to Reduce Indoor Humidity (And Why It’s Important)

May 27th, 2024

You’ve heard people say, “It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity.” And no doubt you’ve noticed that high humidity can make you feel the impact of the heat even more. There’s a simple, scientific reason for that: air that’s already saturated with moisture can’t absorb any more. Since your body cools itself by perspiring, allowing air to absorb some of your heat with that moisture, you’ll overheat faster when it’s humid.

This overheating caused by humidity won’t just be uncomfortable for you. It can have other impacts on your home and your HVAC system! What you need is to keep your indoor humidity at a low enough level. What level? How can you do it? Why do you need to? We’ll explain it all.

3 Signs Your Main Water Line Needs Help

January 22nd, 2024

Did you know that one of the most important parts of your residential plumbing system lies outside of your house? We’re talking about your home’s main water line. This pipe is responsible for bringing fresh water into your home from the municipal system. 

This pipe is buried within your property and doesn’t get any attention until it springs a leak or breaks. Issues can occur when the pipe material degrades due to age. Pipes from before the 1980s were often made from clay or galvanized steel which will decay over time. 

Modern water lines are made from sturdier materials which are resistant to the corrosion that plagues older piping materials. If your main water line is old or incurs damage for some reason, you should be aware of these three signs that you may need water line repair to fix the main water line to your house.
