Inevitably, as a homeowner, there will come times when you will encounter plumbing problems. The temptation might be to try to do it yourself and save some money, but that usually proves to be a false economy in the long run. You might have a simple or complex job on your hands, from installing an outdoor hose faucet to re-piping a portion of your home.

Of course, you must drain the water from your home’s pipe system before you begin the needed repairs. This would involve first locating the main water supply shutoff for your home, which could be in any number of places. You would then need to turn the valve in the correct direction, but if the valve is old, you might find it sticky and very difficult to turn, in which case you could use a rag to help with the grip.

You would then need to fully open all faucets and flush all toilets, allowing the water to run until it becomes a slow drip. Then you need to flush all toilets one more time to empty the bowls. When the duration of drips extends to four to five seconds, you would then be safe to start working on your plumbing fixtures and fittings for repairs.

That’s only for starters. Once you are finished with draining the water, you would need to deal with the numerous other elements involved in the job at hand. The risk is you may find yourself way in over your head and possibly have more damage and complications than you began with.

Instead, why not call a business you can trust to make sure it is done right the first time? The plumbers at Crown Plumbing and Heating are all highly qualified and constantly taking courses to keep their skills up-to-date to provide you with the highest quality of service.
