Pro Tech Home Inspections – Plumbing Tips for New Homeowners

Get familiar with how your home’s water heater works whether you have a conventional tank model or a tankless water heater. Particularly, make note of the unit’s date of manufacture and its condition.
Also, take a look at the warranty and store in a safe place. Generally, it’s recommended that water heaters be drained once per year.

If you have a leaking toilet problem, open up the tank and add a couple drops of food coloring. If the coloring appears in the bowl within the next 30 minutes or so, it’s a sign that there is a leak. Check to see if all the connections are secure and sufficiently tight.
