Common Plumbing Questions We Get

Your Pennsylvania home depends on a variety of plumbing systems to function smoothly and efficiently — water running as needed, hot water for showers, effective sewage drainage and more. With so many plumbing fixtures working simultaneously, it can be difficult for homeowners to understand the proper operations and maintenance of each.

At Summers & Zim’s we have years of experience repair and maintaining all types of plumbing, and homeowners most often ask us the following plumbing-related questions:

  • What Items Can I Put Down My Garbage Disposal? Place only soft, edible materials down your garbage disposal. Avoid putting bone, coffee grounds, corn husks, fibrous materials and other garbage items down the drain.
  • Should I Turn My Water off to go on Vacation? Even though no one will be using your faucets while you’re out of town, your plumbing could still cause problems — small leaks, burst plumbing or water backing up could happen while you’re away, wreaking havoc to your home. To best avoid these damages, homeowners should always shut off their plumbing when they anticipate being away for a long period.
  • Where Is My Main Water Shut-off Valve? Locating your water shut-off is simple when you know where to look — search along the inside perimeter of your home. The valve is typically located three feet below ground level in the basement or somewhere on the main floor of your home. If you still can’t find it, locate your outdoor water meter and follow the line to where it meets with the house. At that meeting place is where you should find the shut-off valve.
