Your plumber will be glad to give you additional hints that apply specifically to your own home.

Major repairs, replacements, and new plumbing installations should be left to the supervision of a plumbing contractor.

    If something more than hot water and soap is needed to clean them, apply a non- abrasive powder or cleaner recommended by your plumber. Leaks must have immediate attention, since they can progress into a serious break in a hurry. This rod should be straightened and a little oil applied to the lever joints to insure smooth action. The best modern fittings are all chrome plated brass and will last a lifetime under everyday use. To be safe have your plumber check your entire plumbing system. Chemical and material exposures are common for plumbers, so get training on the potential hazards at the job sites that you are assigned.
