It Pays to Take Care of Our Plumbing.
The average household plumbing system represents an
investment of about fifteen percent of the value of the house. No part
of the house is more important . Nothing in the house is used more often.
A smoothly functioning plumbing system is a pin to health and adds to
the convenience of modern living.
This booklet was written with the objective of helping
home owners as well as renters keep their plumbing systems in good operating
condition. The sale value of a house with sound plumbing is far greater
than that of a house where plumbing is in poor repair.
There are many things that an owner or renter can
do; there are many things that should be left to an expert-theplumbing
contractor and his staff of journeymen plumbers. Minor repairs should
be made promptly. Such annoyances such as a clogged
drain, dripping faucet or a leaking flush valve in the toilet, are
more than a mere bother - they usually waste money. This booklet suggests
remedies for these and many other household plumbing problems.
Major repairs, replacements, and new plumbing installations
should be left to the supervision of a plumbing contractor. His working
methods are based on years of experience - and his guarantee is assurance
that all materials and methods are of the highest quality.
This booklet will help prolong the useful life of
your plumbing system. Your plumber will be glad to give you additional
hints that apply specifically to your own home.
