Check the Plumbing

If you do any replacement work on your plumbing, double check the job the next day, a week later, a month later to make sure that no leaks develop.

We had a lot of fun with a drip under the sink this weekend that we hadn't realized was there. We'd installed a faucet some months back and although it seemed fine right after we installed it, it evidently has been dripping. The under the sink cabinet was full and it dripped out the back, soaked the bottom of the cabinet, then reached the old flooring and came forward underneath the new vinyl tiles in the kitchen. The floor kept being wet because everytime you would step on a tile, it would squish a little water up through the cracks.

For someone who finds they have that problem, look for plumbing leaks. It was just a little drip from where the shutoff valve faucets were attached to the waterline.

PREVENT PLUMBING FREEZE-UP by opening the sink cabinet doors over night. Also let the water drip while the temperature is so low.

This in addition to using hot water daily and placing on a heat tape.

To know heat tape is working run the cold water, it will feel warm to touch as the water goes through the pipes, that thank you to my land manager. My tape is 2 yrs beyond the warrante and still working well. Time to have it replaced.
