Understanding how the water works in your home

How to turn off the water to the house

It is important to know how to turn off the water to the house.  Many homeowners don’t think about this until an accident happens and water starts flooding the house.  If you will be leaving town, it’s a good idea to turn off your water–just in case.

If you are worried about your grass while out of town, you can also install what we call a vacation valve.  When you are out of town, you can turn off just the water to the house, but your sprinklers will still run. 

You can also install a valve that tracks your water usage and will shut down the water in the house when it detects a leak.  Call us for options!

Water Heaters

A few videos about water heaters.  Mark, our master plumber, shows how to get a quick estimate and why to have a professional install your water heater.

We are in the process of making videos about how to light different water heater pilot lights.  We will add videos as we find different types of pilot ignitions.
