Knobs, switches and valves
When you buy a new piece of cool electronic gear, you get an owners manual that you can refer to when you need help. Unfortunately, your house which is the biggest purchase you may ever make, doesn’t come with a manual. The Handyguys discuss all the typical switches, valves, knobs and buttons you may find in your home. Disaster can be averted by reviewing the location and operation of all of these devices. An ounce of prevention will prevent a 8000 pounds of water leaking out of your toilet!
