4 Plumbing Tips and Tricks

4 Plumbing Tips and Tricks

1. Stop sink-sprayer hang-ups
Do you have to move around the hose as you pull out your kitchen
sink sprayer? C
hances are the hose is catching on the shutoff valves. For smooth
operation,
slip 1/2-in. foam pipe insulation over the pipes and shutoff handles. Tape
it if it won’t stay put. Get the insulation at home centers for about 3 bucks.

2. Quiet loud sink sounds

Fill the space between two stainless steel sink basins with expanding foam.
The foam deadens vibrations and lessens the gong effect. It’s possible to do
this with the sink in place but much neater and easier before installation.
Either way, let the foam harden and then trim away the excess with a knife.

 

3. Use a bucket of water to flush the toilet water
You don’t have to run to the neighbor’s bathroom during a plumbing project.
Before you turn off the water supply, fill 2- gallon buckets with water.
Flush the toilet by dumping the water in the bowl. You’ll get one flush per bucket.
Works just as well as the usual method, although it won’t refill the bowl.

4. Take pictures before closing walls

Your walls may not have much inner beauty, but it’s a good idea to take
pictures of what’s inside during remodeling. The same goes for floors
and ceilings. When your next remodeling or repair project rolls around,
you’ll know where the framing and the electrical and plumbing lines are.
