Carbon Monoxide

Carbon Monoxide PoisoningWhile carbon monoxide is not specifically a plumbing issue, poisoning from this dangerous gas kills hundreds each year in the United Statesalone.  Carbon monoxide is produced when any fuel is burned.  In most homes the danger comes from improperly vented gas appliances such as furnaces and water heaters.  Carbon monoxide is odorless which means you can become poisoned without any advance warning.  In addition to preventative maintenance on your home appliances, every home should be equipped with carbon monoxide detectors.  If installed correctly and functioning properly, the detector should provide sufficient warning in the event of dangerous levels of carbon monoxide.  For more information about carbon monoxide poisoning, click this site from the Environmental Protection Agency.

Replacing a Shower Head

shower headIf you have a leaking shower head or just want to upgrade, replacing a shower head is a simple task for most home owners.  Using a small adjustable wrench, remove the old shower head.  Be careful not to remove the shower head stem from the wall.  Before installing the new shower head, wrap the exposed pipe threads with Teflon tape to prevent water leaks.  Using the same wrench, carefully tighten the new shower head.  To prevent scratches, wrap the shower head with a rag or masking tape.  For help with all plumbing repairs, give Plano Plumbing Pro a call.

In-Line Water Filters

Water FilterIf you’re tired of paying for bottled water or using filtration pitchers then a great way to overcome these costs is the installation of an in-line water filter or under sink filter.  These filters are economical and the cartridges are relatively inexpensive.  If your refrigerator has chilled water and no filter then this is a great place for an in-line filter.  Under the sink units may be a bit more complicated, however in the long run may save hundreds of dollars compared to bottled water.  If you need help with any water filtration systems, give us a call.
