If you are hiring out to have your home alarm installed, always use a licensed vendor to install, repair, or service an alarm system. While licenses do not guarantee honesty, it does indicate that the vendor has registered with the state, and has met the specified minimum criteria for your locale. In most cases, a license is predicated upon proof of adequate insurance and/or bonding, so you have that protection as well. Local alarm systems (those which sound only on the protected premises) are much less effective, especially when local ordinances limit the time for which the signal can sound to avoid nuisance disturbance of neighbors. If you invest in such an alarm, you are counting on conscientious neighbors to call the police to respond. Having the signals from your alarm system monitored by a licensed vendor better assures that you get the protection you pay for when you install an alarm system.


How to Shut the Water off Fast on Fixtures

When the Toilet or the sink starts to over flow and you need to shut the water fast and for one reason or another the faucet level or the toilet flapper isn't working you will need to have another way to stop the water. The good news is that there is another way to shut off the water using something called the angle stops that are on the bottom of the sink or if you have a cabinet they will be inside the cabinet. The angle stops are usually gold, chrome or rough brass in color and what you will need to do is to shit off the angle stops by turning the valves as fast as you can to thr right ( clockwise) to get the water to stop instantly. Once and a while there will be a valve that will be "frozen" or stuck and will not be able to be shut off and this is when you will have to find the water main to the house and shut off all the water to the entire house and then have to call the plumber to replace the valve as well as fix the original plumbing problem you had from the start.
