Your Guide to Better Home Plumbing Systems

How well does your home’s plumbing system work? While newer homes are being built with PVC plastic, copper or PEX piping rather than cast-iron and brass which was used back in the day there’s a lot more that goes into a proper plumbing system than just the pipes. It takes a skilled plumber and many years of experience to install a plumbing system the right way – so that a simple leak doesn’t turn into a major nightmare.

While lots of plumbers out there stick to the codes and rules, it’s far more beneficial for homeowners to look for ones that take it a step further. A good plumber will take the time to plan out and arrange the pipes so you can enjoy a system that’s quiet, leak-free and efficient.

Things To Consider:

  • Extra Shutoff Valves – these are extremely helpful when you have a problem. Shutoff valves for each fixture and each appliance will allow you to cut the water where the problem exists, but not to the rest of the house.

  • Go Low-Flow – still have old plumbing fixtures in your Twin Cities – St. Paul home? They might be costing you. Homeowners should be making an effort to upgrade to low-flow fixtures to save water and extend the lifespan of your plumbing system.
