Whatever your home improvement project, you need a designated space for all waste and debris that piles up as a result of your projects. Removing a lot of debris can cost quite a bit, so planning for a space to put it in can keep your project running smoothly.
Once you have the spray pattern layout done, make a list of all of the equipment you will need to do the job. This includes piping, fittings, control valves, risers, sprinklers, manifolds and controllers. You may want to have some extra components on hand in case a few items break during installation.
You should have the basic tools for doing the simplest of plumbing repairs. Tools like plungers and snake should be basic ones that need to be found in each and every home. If you want to do more complicated repairs then you can get additional tools such as those used by professional plumbers.
If you live in an area where the temperature goes down way below the freezing point, you should open the faucet just a little to ensure that the water does not freeze. Frozen water is one of the most common reasons for damaged pipes.
In some houses, due to the sudden large cracks in the pipes the main water supply needs to shut down. It might be for long hours, and the whole water pipeline need to change. In such circumstances always call a professional plumber. These professionals make sure safety in the work to be undertaken in the house.
Look at the hoses and valves and replace the ones needing replacement. You can find them at a Plumbing house or a home improvement center, and make sure you also get a lot of plumbers tape (made of Teflon).
Tip: Install a tee on the pipe before it transitions to a horizontal run. Have the leg of the tee pointing down. Cap off the end or put a full flow ball valve on the end of the nipple. It will serve a couple of purposes. First, it will help trap debris in the line before it jams your air tools. Second, it will act as a water drain.
Here in lies a paradox. How can we achieve a balance between giving plants very little water while trying to conserve it, yet giving those plants enough water to survive?
