  • A simple plunger may solve many of your clogging problems.
  • Check any of your exposed plumbing lines for corrosion or leaks.
  • During extremely cold weather, allowing a faucet to drip slowly may help avoid a freezing water line.
  • A dripping faucet may be repaired by simply replacing an o-ring, cartridge, or vinyl gasket.
  • Clean and remove any hard water or mineral deposits with apple cider vinegar to avoid slow water flow.
