Having a basic understanding of your homes plumbing system and how it functions is imperative knowledge for every home owner. The longevity of your plumbing system depends on your ability to recognize problems or the potential or problematic issues in your homes plumbing systems.
Plumbing issues in Alameda County arise most often in the two most popular rooms in any home, the kitchen and restroom. It would make sense especially since those two rooms are also the two rooms with the most plumbing fixtures in most homes. Kitchen sinks tend to be on the more complicated side than the sinks and faucets found in restrooms. Your kitchen sink faucet not only summons both hot and cold water on request, but most homes are equipped with garbage disposals and water purification systems that connect into your homes incoming water line or waste line.
If you are looking to partake in a little do it yourself work a lot of minor clogs and plumbing issues can be easily executed by even the greenest of weekend warriors. Make sure to take ample pictures of the existing system prior to disassembling piping and appliances, shut off the incoming water line or lines, and if you are going to be working with electricity, find and flip the breaker for the section of your home that you will be working in.
If you want to start with something a little less intimidating than the tangle of plumbing beneath your kitchen sink, repairing leaking and dripping faucets is well within the house of anyone willing to attempt a little novice plumbing.

Dripping and leaking faucets need immediate attention, not only will the remedying of leaking fixtures help to save water and money, the repair work will help to fortify your homes plumbing system against any premature wear or failure.
