Common Household Plumbing Issues and How to Prevent Them: An Interview with Dale Arnold of Arnold's Plumbing

By Dale Arnold

Plumbing issues always seem so complicated and as if they come out of left field. That's why we interviewed Dale Arnold of Arnold's Plumbing in order to find out more about common household issues and how they can be prevented or fixed.

About Arnold's Plumbing:

Dale Arnold, the owner of Arnold's Plumbing, had 16 years experience, and had developed a good following in 2001, so he decided to start Arnold's Plumbing. He had worked for a few companies whose main focus seemed to be on their bottom line. He wanted to place the customer first, and let the bottom line be a secondary consideration.

Arnold's Plumbing's mission is to provide an excellent, honest service to our customers at a fair price.

Common Household Plumbing Issues and How to Prevent Them:

  • Outside Faucets Freezing: Remove the house prior to the cold weather to allow it to drain.
  • Washing Machine Hoses: Be sure to check your washing machine hoses regularly. Many floods in homes are caused by hose issues.
  • Freezing Pipes: In extremely cold temperatures, leaving a faucet dripping slightly or a cabinet door ajar can help prevent freezing pipes.
  • Dripping Faucet: Be sure to repair a dripping faucet as soon as possible to prevent the leak from damaging the fixture.
  • Water Heaters: Water heaters that were manufactured in the last five years require more maintenance than they have ever required before. Make sure to clean the air intake regularly.
  • Water Heaters: The lower temperature your water heater is set to, the longer the life of the product.
  • Shut-Off Valves: To keep a fixtures supply stop working properly, they must be exercised (turned on and off) at least every three months
