Tips

Check the main water shut-off valve to your house or apartment unit at least every six months to ensure it is working properly. Know where it is located and how to turn the water off in case of any kind of flooding.

How do you detect a silent leak from your toilet? Put several drops of dark food coloring into your toilet tank. If the dye appears in the bowl, you need to replace the valve seal ball or flapper at the bottom of the tank. The Board of Water Supply also has tablets you can use.

Tips about tankless water heaters. Most tankless electric water heaters can’t supply enough hot water to meet the demands of an entire house without upgrading the electrical service and installing much larger wiring and breakers. Because of this, they are usually impractical.
On the other hand, tankless gas water heaters are able to provide a steady stream of hot water at sufficient rates to supply an entire house. Takagi and Rinnai are two of the leading suppliers of these units that will save a homeowner up to 30% compared to a conventional gas heater, and 50% or more compared to a conventional electric water heater.
These types of tankless units cost more than the conventional heaters and usually cost more to install, so that needs to be kept in mind.
