In the Kitchen


Check your refrigerator icemaker.

To check, pull your refrigerator out from the wall and look at the tubing connected from the fridge to your water line. If the hose coming from the refrigerator is rubber or plastic, consider replacing it with a reinforced hose. A reinforced hose will last longer than a standard hose and will help prevent leaks. You can purchase a reinforced hose at most home improvement or hardware stores.

While you are in the kitchen, also check your dishwasher to see if its hose is reinforced. Unless you are able to move the dishwasher yourself, you may want to seek professional help.

Don't forget to check the faucets while you are in the kitchen. See In the Bathroom: Faucets & Showerheads.

Finally, check the laundry room. »
