Understanding Plumbing Basics

As a new homeowner, I can tell you that things aren't always as simple as they appear.

We had issues with drains working correctly and toilets flushing like they should, so I started focusing more heavily on understanding the basics of our plumbing system.

Check out these articles to learn more about the plumbing basics.
