  • Slowly drain some few gallons from your water
    heater in order to push out the nasty corrosion
    that causes sediment build up. This will help
    increasing the life of your heater by increasing
    energy efficiency.

  • Check the washing machine, dishwasher and any ice
    maker supply hoses for leaks or bulges. Any hose
    showing such a defect should be replaced. Also,
    if it is over ten years old it should be
    replaced. The new stainless steel hoses out there
    are much more dependable, if you're in need of a
    replacement.

  • The lint trap in your washing machine may have
    some build up. Be sure to clean that out. Also,
    though this involves some wherewithal, you can
    place a wire trap over the end of the hose that
    drains the washer. Since this could require some
    expertise, it might be wise to contact a
    professional to do the work for you.

  • You can fairly easily check for hidden leaks in
    your toilets. All you have to do is apply a few
    drops of food coloring into the tank atop the
    toilet. You will see color appear in the bowl in
    about half an hour if the toilet is leaking.

To prevent sticking, turn the water supply valves
underneath your toilets and sinks. You can also
manually check if your toilets are flushing
properly. If you find that the handle must be
held down in order to flush the entire bowl or
that it perhaps has to be tinkered with to stop
running water, then you probably need to replace
old, defective parts in the tank.

  • Clean any mineral build up apparent in your
    shower heads. What you want to do is unscrew the
    had and soak it in a plastic bag filled with
    vinegar. You can also apply the bag of vinegar to
    the shower head directly without unscrewing it,
    using a rubber band.

Let the shower head soak over the night and then
gently brush out any built up sediment.

  • Check for any held over frozen pipes from the
    winter that have cracked and must be replaced.
    You'll know this is the case when there is a leak
    inside the home the first instance the hose is
    put on or if a faucet outside is dripping.
    Fulfill this same exercise with the yard sprains
    and down-sprouts.

  • Check if your home has a sump pump. If it does,
    then you can make sure it is working correctly
    simply by removing the lid and pouring some
    buckets of water into the pit of the sump. Watch
    as it should fairly soon turn on and pump out the
    water then subsequently turn off without a hitch.
