Baby it's cold outside. Make sure you serviced your boiler and furnace for the winter. A clean boiler/furnace is a safe boiler/furnace. Make sure you have a combo smoke and carbon monoxide detector near your boiler room. It may save your life. Smell gas? Open windows and doors, do not turn on any lights or make a phone call in the house. Go outside and call your plumber and 911. You want your plumber there so you don't get red tagged. If your boiler is red tagged, it may take a while before you get your gas service turned on. Be safe and Happy Holidays.

A leaking seal on a toilet tank that runs or even trickles will end up costing you thousands. This is what happens when your anti-siphon valve ceases to work. It wastes water for one thing causing very high water bills. If it leaks long enough it will rot out the wax seal on the base of your toilet and cause this to either the room below your bathroom or worse yet the co-op share holder below you.....that being me. If your are in a co-op or condo the burden of cost falls in your lap. That means I CAN SUE YOU for my damages thus costing you more money. It only costs under $150.00 to replace your toilet parts. Depending on the part of course. When it gets to this point your have to reseal the toilet. That means repair of toilet parts and the bowl has to be lifted to replace the seals. Now your bill is close to $500.00 for the repairs plus the damages below you. Don't let it get to this point. Remember for every drop of water wasted you pay 5-10 cents per drop. 10 drops per minute-.50-$1.00. 30 minutes $15.00-$30.00. 1 hour $30.00-$60.00....get the picture. That toilet in one month can cost you $1500.00-$3000.00 in wasted water and sewer charges. Not including repairs for toilet and damage. By the time this toilet is done with you, you could be looking at $5,000.00 plus. NYC DEP offers consumers a one time forgiveness on their water bill, but you need a licensed plumber to invoice you for the repairs and it must be a leak that was dripping in the wall that you could not see. So get your toilets and dripping faucets fixed NOW!

Happy Thursday. Today's topic: Stoppages We all get them from time to time. They are annoying. Today's tips are the do's and the do not's when in comes to stoppages. Do keep your drains clean by having strainer to catch hair and other objects that might fall down drains. Do flush your waste lines with vinegar and baking soda. Do not put draino or other caustic chemicals in your drain. Do not use hard wire like hangers to snake out your line. This can poke a hole in your drain. Don't take your drain apart if you do not know how to reconnect it. Call your plumber when the sink or drain starts to appear sluggish. Waiting only makes the problem worse. Getting back to draino. Draino is not as safe as you think. There is lye in that stuff. It is like pouring acid in your pipes. If a clog is really bad that stuff just sits there eating the clog and your drain. It thins the pipe too. Don't get mad at your Plumber if the drain pipe crumbles under the pressure of a snake. The draino ate the piping. If you did use draino, please let the plumber know before he starts any work so he can put on gloves and protective eye cover. Remember that stuff is like acid and can hurt someone. Follow this tip and you will save yourself a ton of cash.

Happy Tuesday. Spring looks like it is finally here. Check your sprinkler lines for damage. We had a harsh winter.

Happy Thursday.....Happy Home tips. Outside Hose Connections With the start of the warm weather, it would be wise to check your outside hose connections before turning them on. We had a very harsh winter with many days reaching the negative zero level. We had many frozen pipes this year. When turning your outside hose connections on it would be wise to open the spout and let water flow for a few minutes. While the water is flowing go down the basement and check to see if there are any leaks between the pipe and the shut off valve. Many basements have flooded because of a hair line crack or pin hole in the pipe between the outside hose connection and the inside shut off valve. If you see dripping shut the valve off and have it replaced. Do not leave water on. Leaks get worse under pressure. Do the same with the outside hose spigot. If you see dripping shut it off and replace or repair. Dripping plumbing fixtures can cause flooding or cost you hundreds in wasted water charges. Hot Water Heaters Because the weather is getting warmer, you will see a bunch of hot water heaters in the trash on recycle days. This is because a hot water heater is lined in glass. When the weather gets warmer or cooler, the glass lining expands and retracts causing the inside to crack or rupture. If you have a basement that stays the same temperature year round, your hot water heater will last longer then others. If your basement is cooler in the winter and warmer in the summer, then your hot water heater will crack before the warranty is up. When you see brown hot water, it means your hot water heater is rusting inside and is getting ready to blow.....Believe me you do not want your hot water heater to BLOW! My 100 gallon tank cracked in my rental property. By the time I arrived, the basement was filled with 4 feet of water and my water bill went from $800.00 to $2600.00. The same can happen to anyone. My tip today for today is go down the basement and drain off some water from the hot water heater to remove any rust sediment. Do this once a month. This will help your hot water heater last longer. If you have a basement that does not stay the same temperature year round it would be smart to put an insulated blanket around your hot water heater. If you see rust, it is time to replace. When you do replace your hot water heater, remember to ask for a drip tray so if your heater should ever go, the water would run right into the sewer instead of your basement. This is a must for those of you with finished basements. Happy Spring!
