Did you know?
Did you know that in the Institute for Business and Home Safety found that water damage from a sink averaged more than $7,000 per incident?
The IBHS recommends that home owners should:
- Inspect plumbing beneath sinks every six months.
- Ensure connections are secure and there is no evidence of corrosion on the pipes.
- Look for kinks in copper or plastic pipes. These could lead to pinhole leaks over time.
- Locate the water shut-off valve. Inspect the valve every six months to make sure the water supply will shut off. Replace the valve if needed.
