A person can hold up for at least three weeks without food. But without water, an average person can only survive for up to three days although there had been instances where some people were able to survive for at least 8 to 10 days.  But these circumstances can be largely dependent to the physical and physiological health of a particular person.

In any case, water is such a precious resource and although the Earth is made up of three quarters of it, ensuring that we have a safe and potable water supply in our households is one way of conserving this resource.

Here are some key measures to prevent water damage in your own house or establishment.

  1. Watch out for molds.

Ah, molds. Where there’s moisture, surely there will be molds growing on that spot. And the presence of mold on your pipeline should already raise some concern, since the molds could have already contaminated your water supply. Also, focus on how rapidly the mold spreads. If the rate of the growth of the mold is quite fast, better call for professional help to get rid of the problem immediately and prevent further damage.

  1. Fix existing leaks.

Leaks can be the reason for number 1 in this list. Postponing leak repairs can result to mildew and molds, and even be the cause for grave structural damage that cannot be covered by your home insurance plan. The best action is to call your plumber and have the leaks fixed once you see it.

  1. Invest in water detection devices.

A water detector is a device that is acts as an alarm whenever its sensor detects moisture. This device is perfect in detecting tiny leaks that are usually not easily noticed. You may opt to have these devices installed near water heaters, washing machines, dishwashers and even toilets. Doing so will definitely help you monitor mold growth and avoid major damage.

  1. Groom plants surrounding your estate.

There’s a reason why there is a need to maintain plants and shrubs up to a certain height. And that’s not only to make it look pleasing to the eyes. Overgrown plants, trees or shrubbery, can damage water pipes especially when the roots start wrapping themselves to these pipes. If possible, removal of these plants should be done. If not, there is an option to just make sure that the landscaping of these plants are well-maintained and done on a regular basis.

 

Always ensure that your water supply is unharmed and safe for your family to use, because prevention is so much more important than the cost of repairs.

Quick Tips on Buying a Toilet Bowl

The toilet is one of the more taken-for-granted piece of furniture in the common household. Nobody seems to bother to take a lot of their time just to buy a toilet. Nevertheless, the toilet is a very essential part of the home.  And choosing the right one that suits your lifestyle and personality can be very helpful in making it last quite a while.

Despite not wanting to pick a fancy toilet, here are some tips you might want to keep in mind when the need for a new toilet comes.

  1. Check flush ratings online.

The internet has definitely made our lives easier, and that includes researching on the different flush performance of toilets, varying in manufacturers and specific models.

  1. Consider water-saving options.

If you’re big on the water efficiency performance of toilets, you can choose a pressure-assist toilet model rather than the gravity toilets. Pressure-assist toilets have a separate tank that contains water under pressure. These toilets flush with great velocity so you can be assured that it will remove the waste thoroughly despite minimal water usage. One thing to remember though is that these kinds of toilets can be a bit costlier than gravity toilets and tend to be noisier when flushed.

  1. Take time to measure the rough-in.

Before anything else — the design, the water-efficiency capabilities and price — make sure that the toilet you are going to buy is going to fit into its designated spot in your bathroom and not going to cause you further trouble. Measuring the rough-in, or the distance between the wall to the middle of the bolts that hold the toilet down, is a must before you head on to the hardware as the rough-in can affect your toilet choices. The standard distance between the wall and the bolts is 12 inches, but other models such 10 inches and 14 inches are also available. Ensuring the rough-in is an integral part in buying and installing a new toilet.

  1. Conserve water with dual-flush toilet.

Dual-flush toilets use about 25% less water than the usual toilet and are available in both gravity and pressure-assist units, but can be pricier than other toilet types.

 

Deciding on what kind of toilet you need for your bathroom can be quite daunting or boring for some but hopefully the tips mentioned above can make the decision-making and the buying process a breeze for you.

Once you have bought your toilet, make sure that your plumbing is also secured. Call GSR Malabanan for all your plumbing and pipeline system needs. The maintenance of your septic system is what we do best, for a clean and waste-free environment.

How to Keep Your Toilet Clean

Maintaining a clean and dry toilet is kind of a tricky thing because of the weather we have here in our country. It becomes moist and it produces dirt almost every second. And we all know that maintenance is the key to have the desired cleanliness for our toilets. So, for those who are having difficulties on how to keep their toilets clean, here are some of the simple ways to help you out.

  • Keep the toilet handle dirt-free.

Toilet handle is one of the most used and also one of the most ignored parts in our toilets in terms of sanitation. But, we have to keep in mind that cleaning is very important because this is where germs frequently take place. So, to keep the dirt away from your toilet handle you may spray disinfectant to it and wipe it thoroughly using a clean cloth. In this way, you can lessen the possibility of germs spreading out.

  • Consider trying vinegar.

In case your conventional bathroom or toilet cleaning products are not enough to do the work, you may try going traditional by using vinegar as a substitute. Just simply pour an ample amount of vinegar into your toilet bowl and let it sit. After a few hours, you may scrub your bowl then rinse it with clean water.

  • Refrain from using carpets.

Carpets are being used as wraparound for toilets these days. Although fancy-looking, these carpets can harbor germs that can spread all around your bathroom in a matter of time. Aside from this, carpets smell whenever it gets misty. To prevent this from happening, you may use a plastic bathmat instead. Plastic bathmats are washable and can be cleaned easily compared to carpets.

  • Regularly clean your toilet.

The best way to keep your toilet clean is of course by cleaning it on a regular basis. Regular cleaning means once or twice a week. You don’t have to make it an extensive one, just a quick brushing and scrubbing will do. Remember, our toilets are loaded with various types of germs so we better prevent these microorganisms from propagating.

It is given that toilet cleaning is not much of a well-loved household chore, but since we want to have a comfortable bathroom, we must first make sure that our toilets are properly sanitized and are germ-free. You just have to practice doing these tips above to achieve the cleanliness you want for your toilet.

Not doing the work doesn’t mean that you don’t have to be aware of the tools that are being used for plumbing. For emergency purposes or as a stopgap measure, having your own plumbing tools is essential especially when a permanent solution is still being worked out or while your plumbing services provider is on their way.

To give you some ideas, here are the FIVE basic plumbing tools you should know:

  • Pliers (tongue and groove) – Channel lock pliers are very handy, quick, and they can take apart most plumbing easily. These kinds of pliers work best in pairs – one for stabilizing the piper and one to unscrew. If you are worried with scratching a finish, you can wrap the teeth with an electrical tape or use a towel between the finish.
  • Basin Wrench – Also dubbed as a sink wrench, a basin wrench is one of the most basic plumbing tools that can be used to many projects. This tool can be very handy when you are changing an old faucet in the kitchen, bathroom, or laundry sink. It is actually a self-tightening wrench that can be used to loosen or tighten fittings in hard to reach places.
  • Compression Sleeve Puller – If you have a copper, PEX, or CPVC tubing in your house, you are most likely to have compression angle stops which will feed water to your toilets and faucets. Even though it is easy to unscrew the angle, stop it by holding the back nut. The problem is that the nut and compression sleeve are still left on the pipe, so, using a compression sleeve puller will be ideal.
  • Pipe Wrench – This plumbing tool comes handy when it comes to threading such as iron pipe. Many fitting like the nipples on the water heater, yard hydrants, or pressure regulators will require the use of one or two pipe wrenches. This is to provide enough leverage to unscrew these nipples.
  • Adjustable Wrench – This tool is useful in removing angle stops, compression nuts, and supply lines to faucets. Adjustable wrenches can also be used for screwing on or removing a shower head so that the chrome will not get scratched during installation or cleaning.

Although there are certain plumbing tasks that you can do yourself, the worst case scenario still needs the expertise of plumbers.

Extreme plumbing tasks that need machines and excavation shall be taken care of by an expert for that certain matter. Sometimes doing things by yourself, especially fixing your plumbing system, can make it even worse.

To help you out, here are the six situations that will tell you that it’s time to call a plumber.

  • Leaky Faucet – Those tiny drops of water when accumulated can be equivalent to thousands of gallons of water in just one day. Not only will it cause an increase on your water bill but it can also waste water supply. Don’t hesitate to ring your nearest plumbing services provider when this happens.
  • Clogged Toilets – There is no wonder that this is a total nightmare. Clogged toilets are often caused by objects being accidentally thrown or flushed in the toilet. Plunging your clogged toilet is not enough solution so you better call your plumber right away.
  • Leaky drainage/water pipes – The solution for this is tightening the plumbing joints and that is something that is hard to do especially if you don’t have the right set of tools. Continuously leaking pipes could be a sign of eroding and degrading pipes, or a problem with the water seal, which requires extensive knowledge and training to fix.
  • Clogged Bathtubs – Bunch of hair strands can easily clog up your bathtub drain. Clearing the objects that have obstructed your bathtub drainage can be cleared through the tools of professional plumbers. So, when this happens, never hesitate to call your nearest plumbing services provider.
  • Inconsistent Water Flow – The mineral build-up or rust within the fixture or pipes can cause the inconsistent water flow on your faucets around the house. Seeking the help of a plumber to address the problem will be very beneficial.
  • Septic Tank Leaks – This is one of the most crucial situations that needs the help of a plumber immediately. However, this is not very easy to know unless some maintenance workers are doing a routine inspection to spot the problem. But, you may be able to at least have a hunch that your septic tank has a problem if there’s a low liquid level or liquid flow back in the tank.

If the problems on your plumbing system seem hopeless, worry no more, because you’ve got GSR Malabanan to provide you with the utmost expertise on giving you the best solution.

6 Things That Clog Your Sink

Clogged sinks can be one of the most terrible things to happen in a household. Soap residue and yellow icky stains brought about by spilled sauces on your sink are just some of the stuff that can give you problem. Hence, if these things will not be rid of after such a long time, clogging can take place and be the source of hassle to your daily living.

To give you an idea on the things that may clog up your sink, keep this list handy. And as much as possible, try not to make these things pile up or gather on your bathroom or kitchen sink to prevent the worst case scenario.

  • Hair – Definitely one of the most common and stubborn material to clog up any drainage. Surely, you wouldn’t want to see a bunch of hair on your sink. So, if the hair situation has gotten really serious, be sure that you got GSR Malabanan Services’ hotline ready.
  • Coffee Grounds – Avoid spilling leftover coffee grounds on the drain of your sink because these will penetrate the pipes and may get cemented therein.
  • Paper – Toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, and feminine hygiene stuff can break down when wet and create clogging on your sink. Putting a proper trash bin near the kitchen sink and in your bathroom may help on avoiding such disaster.
  • Cotton – Although cotton is very much handy, you have to throw it into proper places and not in the sink. Why? Since it cannot be broken down by water, cotton will most likely get stuck in your sink.
  • Grease – Just like in plates, pans, and utensils, grease is really a stubborn stuff to get rid of, more specifically when it gets into your sink. Be careful on washing the dishes and as much as possible, clean the spilled greases immediately before it sticks on your sink… forever.
  • Food Scraps – Also one of the common stubborn stuff that can clog your sink, but, it is more manageable to prevent. How? Just avoid throwing your food scraps or vegetable peelings on the sink. Instead, throw it out directly on your trash bins and voila — clean and unclogged sink!

And if it’s too late for you and you already have a clogged sink, you don’t have to endure the hassle. Call GSR Malabanan Services at 512 8058 or 545 6413 now and let us do the work for you!

 

There are certain household problems that just can’t wait. Plumbing is one of the most essential household maintenance routine that should not be neglected. Hence, you will need an expert in order to solve this.

Leaky pipes, faulty drainage systems, and even broken bathroom or kitchen fixtures are just some of these household problems that are in need of a reliable plumbing services provider.

To help you out, here are some things that you should remember on choosing the right plumbing service provider for your house:

  • Take time to research. Search across the Yellow Pages or Google some relevant key terms in order to find a decent plumbing services provider. Referrals are also something that you should consider. Your friends or relatives might be able to recommend some plumbing professionals so it’s also ideal to ask them for suggestions.
  • Value reputation and work experience. One of the ideal characteristics of a reliable plumbing service provider is their incredible reputation. Testimonials and reviews from clients should be something you should look for. This can be helpful enough to assess if the said company is well-experienced in the services they offer. Plumbing companies who are already in the business for a long time suggest stability.
  • Always look for their license. You wouldn’t want to be dealing with someone who’s operating a business illegally. Be keen on identifying if the plumber’s license is not yet expired. This is also to make sure that the plumber is following all health and safety standards and building codes
  • Assess the staff and crew. Don’t let someone who is not a licensed plumber or a verified representative of the plumbing services company enter your house. Make sure that before they pass through your doorstep, you have seen their licenses – all of them, the master plumber and his staff – and they are wearing their proper attire.
  • Check the price and the things that come with it. A good service for a right price is more than worth it. However, you also have to be careful on picking up those plumbing companies who offer cheaper services (better take a look again at items number 1 to 4). To avoid such mishaps, it’s best to ask several potential providers about their prices, compare, and then select.

Don’t keep your plumbing needs waiting. Make sure that you’ve got the best and the most reliable solutions to your household problems. Turn to one of the best plumbing services provider in the country, GSR Malabanan.
