There are some basic things you can do before calling a plumber:

  • If your toilet is overflowing, turn the valve off. Try using a plunger. If this doesn't take care of your problem, give us a call.
  • If you have a leak, give us a call. Sometimes for a minimal charge, we can help stop the dripping and save water.
  • To preserve your water heater, drain and flush it every 6 months.
  • To save energy and prevent scalding, lower the temperature on your water heater.
  • Before calling Kascade Plumbing for a jammed disposal, try the reset switch located on the bottom of most disposals.
  • To dress up a kitchen or bath without the cost of remodelling, have new faucets and cabinet hardware installed.
  • To protect outside faucets from winter freezing, disconnect hoses, shut of valves inside the building and cover them with foam faucet covers.
  • Septic systems should be inspected and pumped a minimum of once every three years.
  • Manually run your sump pump 2 times a year.
  • Most people are comfortable with their hot water set at 120°F, which is also the new standard that manufacturers use when pre-setting it at the factory. If you have an older model, set the thermostat at medium.
  • If you smell gas, gather your family and pets and get out of your home. Call your gas company to get it checked out immediately!
