I have a foul odor coming from my garbage disposal. How can I eliminate this odor?

Foul odors most often occur from a buildup of food debris within the disposal. To eliminate this odor, place ice cubes and lemon or orange peels in the disposer and run for 30 seconds. Next, squirt a little liquid dish detergent into the disposer while it is still running. Finally, run cold water for about 30 seconds to rinse all the debris away.

My shower head and faucet aerators have a buildup of a white material. Is there anything I can do other than replace them?

The unsightly buildup is form mineral deposits. To remove these deposits from the showerhead, take a plastic bag and pour a cup of vinegar in it. Place the bag over the showerhead and use a twist tie to hold it in place overnight.

Our kitchen drain is draining slower than usual. Should we have it cleaned?

Before you have the drain cleaned, try using drain cleaner or other drain cleaning products. These products are designed to remove the usual buildup of soap scum, grease and hair.

Recently my water bills are higher than usual. We don`t appear to have any leaks. What can we do?

You may want to check to see if a toilet is leaking. First, check the water level to ensure that water is not overflowing the tank by way of the overflow pipe. If this is the case just adjust the fill valve.
