post img

From Drips to Disasters

We know that a plumbing emergency can turn a peaceful day into a watery nightmare. That’s why the team at My Buddy The Plumber is here with some friendly advice on how to prevent plumbing emergencies and keep your home in shipshape condition.

Regular Inspections: The Key to a Leak-Free Home

The best offense is a good defense, right? The same holds true for your plumbing. Schedule regular inspections with My Buddy The Plumber to catch potential issues before they turn into emergencies. Our trained experts can identify and fix small leaks, clogs, or worn-out components that might escalate into more significant problems later on.

Protective Plumbing Practices: Daily Habits That Make a Difference

Simple changes in your daily routine can go a long way in preventing plumbing disasters. Avoid pouring grease down the drain, dispose of food scraps properly, and use drain screens to catch hair and debris. These small steps can prevent clogs and keep your pipes flowing smoothly.

Winterize Your Pipes: A Cold Weather Must-Do

Living in Salt Lake City, we know that winters can be harsh. To prevent frozen pipes, insulate them properly and disconnect garden hoses before temperatures drop. Taking these precautions can save you from the hassle and potential damage caused by burst pipes.

Know Your Water Main Shut-Off Valve: Your Plumbing Panic Button

In case of a plumbing emergency, knowing where your water main shut-off valve is located can make all the difference. Shutting off the water quickly can minimize damage and buy you time until our team at My Buddy The Plumber arrives to fix the issue.
