It's Time to Fix that Leak!

March 19-25 is Fix-a-Leak Week.  Did you know the average American household wastes more than 10,000 gallons of water each year from east-to-fix household leaks?

Finding and fixing leaks is as easy as "check, twist, replace."
  • Check for silent leaks in the toilet with a few drops of food coloring in the tank, and check your sprinkler system for winter damage.
  • Twist faucet valves, tighten pipe connections, and secure your hose to the spigot.
  • Replace old plumbing fixtures and irrigation controllers that are wasting water with Water Sense labeled models that are independently certified to use less water and perform well.

Homeowners Responsible for Exterior Maintenance, Landscaping

Spring is just around the corner, March 20th. We will start to see our grass and vegetation beginning to grow as the weather changes.  
Homeowners and business owners are responsible for providing regular maintenance of their property's landscaping.  Front, side, and rear yards should be well maintained, mowed regularly and free from trash, weeds and overgrown vegetation.  
All residents are responsible for ensuring that their property is free from all litter and debris for health and sanitation reasons.  Having your property on a routine maintenance schedule is one way to guarantee your property will not have any code violations. 
Does Your Contractor Need a License?
In the home construction industry, there are many types of contractors. These include general contractors, electricians, plumbers, framers, roofers and tile setters. 

Do these contractors need a license? No, in the State of Georgia, not all contractors need a license. Georgia has specific requirements for the licensing for some contractors which gives them the authority to pull permits and perform work.
