The Faucet Shutters – When you try to get some water out of your faucet, if you see it is stuttering or it’s screeching, you will need to replace some rubber washers within the mechanism. This is a simple fix that you can purchase a kit to replace. If that doesn’t solve your problem, the fixture might be old, but not a problem, head to your local hardware store and purchase a kit, they’ll have a variety of options for you to try.
Water Comes Too Hot – If your water gets to a boiling point fast, you are in danger of getting burned. You will need to go to your water heater and check out what’s going on. Most heaters have an outside thermostat that you can move around. If upon looking you see that it has been set above 125 degrees, you will want to turn it down a notch. Try to set it at a lower setting, around 120 or even 116 and you should be fine.
The above tips are just a handful of things that you can do around your home that won’t require a plumber to come in. However, if you have something severe, don’t hesitate to give the experts at Rooter Guard a call at (818) 572-9743 .
