Tips to help prevent water damage/loss in your home:

-Maintain trees and vegetation around home.

-Clean gutters and downspouts regularly. Ensure that good drainage is happening.

-Know the location of your water main and shut it off if you are to leave your residence for an extended amount of time.

-Investigate any water leaks and fix promptly upon discovery.

-Check appliance hosing and plumbing fixtures for any possible breakage, and replace promptly if need be.

-Run plenty of water in your garbage disposal when using so that it won't clog up and create a possible leak.

-Check caulking around shower, tub, toilet, and sinks for any possible repairs.

-Check your water pressure, if the pressure is set too high, this can cause pipes and hoses to fail. A water pressure gauge can be bought and tested from your local hardware store. If your water pressure is above 100 psi, install a pressure regulator, which can also be located at your local hardware store.

- Monitor your water bill, sometimes finding a leak is due to noticing small or big changes on your water bill charges.
