Maintaining your plumbing system is an instrumental part of taking care of your home. However, sometimes your plumbing will need attention and calling a plumber may not be a viable option due to costs or time of the year. This article will give you hints on how to maintain your home plumbing.
If you have pipes that sound as if they're squeaking or hammering, it's an easy fix. You will need to anchor any exposed pipes. Call a plumber to help with pipes that require you to cut a hole in a wall, ceiling or floor.
If your water pipe has frozen, start water running in the faucet closest to the frozen pipe. This will give excess water somewhere to drain as the ice in the pipe thaws.
