Auto Tip of the Week:   
We are lucky to live in a coastal area where with a short drive we can be at the beach. However we know how damaging salt water can be. To prevent damage to cars: park in a garage or use a vehicle cover, wash and wax the paint regularly, be sure to rinse the underside of your car if it gets exposed to sand or salt water. With these steps you can enjoy coastal living with minimal corrosion to your vehicle.

For all your 
Car Care Needs!

Mattress Tip of the Week:
Mattresses are designed to last years. Extend the life of your mattress by rotating it every two to six months. Some manufacturers says it's not necessary but every type of mattress can benefit from a regular rotation. This is especially important to do the first couple of years you are breaking in the mattress. Rotating it 180 degrees from head to foot, promotes more even wear.

Plumbing Tip of the Week:
If you're looking to purchase a home, the following tips may be helpful in choosing a place without plumbing issues. Look for signs of corrosion on water heater. Flush all toilets. Check the water pressure from each shower head. Inspect crawl spaces for water leaks, damage, or inadequate repairs. Avoid homes with lead piping. For adequate water pressure you'll want 3/4" pipes from water source to the home and 1/2" pipes or more to faucets.
For all your plumbing questions and concerns call your Local Rooter Man team, 912-236-3333!
