Greenstar Home Services ‘Green It Up™’ is a leading provider of green and eco-friendly plumbing, heating, and air conditioning services serving the Orange County California region. The organization presents new Do It Yourself plumbing tips for homeowners.

Jeremy Prevost, Greenstar CEO comments, “We compiled a few DIY [Do It Yourself] plumbing tips to help our Orange County homeowners. These quick tips are for small issues.”

Prevost continues, “Of course, should an emergency situation arise, call the professionals at Greenstar right away. A small complication can grow into a costly fix if not properly handled.”

DIY Plumbing Tips from Greenstar Home Services:

1. Locate Water Shut-Off Switch: home or business owners should always be aware of where the water shut-off switch is located in case of emergency. Should the toilet or sink begin overflowing, it is crucial to know where the main water switch resides. In most cases, the toilet valve is located behind the base, however a larger leak might require turning off the main water switch.

2. “Green” Clog Fix: a sign of a sink clog can be unpleasant odor or slow draining water. Greenstar suggests a green DIY trick for a clog; mix vinegar and baking soda, and then pour down the drain. If the sink is still not operating properly, be sure to call Greenstar Home Services. A preventative inspection can prevent a more serious issue to the home’s plumbing down the line.

3. Weak Water Pressure Help: weak water pressure in the shower is troublesome, and can lead to longer showers, wasting water. For a quick fix, unscrew the shower head and let it soak in a bowl of descaling solution. This solution can be found at a local hardware store, and can help water pressure flow. Homeowners who suspect a larger plumbing issue should contact Greenstar Home Services for a consultation.

“We hope that these quick tips help Orange County resident’s combat small issues with their home’s plumbing. Greenstar Home Services is here to help with questions or service calls,” notes Colin Martodam, Greenstar COO.
