Plumbing Tips for Homeowners: How does Home Plumbing Work?

What are my Responsibilities for the Plumbing and Drainage as a Homeowner?

When you sign on the dotted line for homeowner insurance, you might assume you're in the clear for any costly nightmares with drains, pipes, sinks, and other plumbing appliances. Not necessarily! Though policies vary in the details, most do not cover blocked toilets, sinks, showers, moving parts within a toilet tank, and other potential plumbing problems.

That's the bad news.

The good news is that there are many steps that are preventive and proactive when it comes to the short-term and long-term health of your plumbing and drains.
