Helpful tips from the Burt’s Reliable plumbers

While we offer great plumbing services, there are things you can do yourself to help protect your Long Island home from damage that can be costly:

  • Know where your main water shutoff valve is located, in case you need to turn off your water supply.
  • If your water heater is in the basement and it ruptures, it could flood the basement. Do not enter the basement if this occurs, as it could be dangerous. Call us first to evaluate the situation.
  • Older shutoff valves have washers that can wear out, making it difficult to turn them off completely. We recommend replacing an older valve with a ball valve.
  • If the pressure-release valve on your boiler keeps tripping, call us to inspect it, because you may need a new expansion device or pressure-relief valve.
  • For the heating season, make sure you have shut off the water supply to all outdoor valves and drained all the water from the pipes to prevent freeze-ups. You may want to disconnect outside valves—or upgrade to frost-free spigots.
