Plumbing Issues Eventually Strike Everyone

You can’t always predict plumbing problems. Whether it’s a small matter of a dripping bathroom faucet to a clogged toilet that doesn’t respond to your best plunging attempts, everyone will at some point face a plumbing issue of one kind or another. When that happens, we’re here to help. We’ll even come during evenings and weekends if you’re having a plumbing emergency.

Show Your Family Members How To Turn Off The Water

We recommend you make sure every adult member of your household knows how to shut off the water main in case of an emergency. Note also the location of individual shut-off valves, usually located under sinks and behind toilets. Use your best judgment to decide when older children are mature and responsible enough to learn about emergency water shut-offs.

What Do I Do If I Have A Burst Pipe?

This sometimes happens as a result of very cold weather, and it’s an emergency, so call us as soon as possible. While you wait for us to arrive, turn off the main water valve to prevent more extensive flooding and damage. To help avoid burst pipes, take special care during unusually cold spells. You can let a small amount of water run all night, open the cabinet doors to let more heat get to the under-fixture piping or even add insulation around certain vulnerable pipes. We can answer any related questions.

What Should I Do If My Sink Or Toilet Is Overflowing?

Shut off water service just to the problem area if possible, and then call us for a fix.

Don’t Ignore Leaky Faucets

Leaky faucets waste a lot of water and they do not get better on their own. At some point, that leaky faucet may reach the point that you can no longer turn it off. We can repair or replace your problem faucet.

We Recommend These Plumbing Tips

Of course, not every plumbing problem is preventable, but some are. Here are some plumbing tips we recommend:

  • Consider annual inspection and flushing of your water heater.
  • Properly insulate any exposed or at-risk pipes to prevent freezing in winter.
  • Never pour cooking grease down the drain.
  • Do not flush any non-flushable items.
  • Install leak detectors near water heaters, washing machines and other such areas. This is a service we offer.
  • Avoid the liquid products commonly sold to unclog drains. They can damage your pipes.
  • Set your water heater’s temperature at about 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • A water softener or water conditioner can greatly improve the quality of your water and reduce damage to your pipes as well.
  • Consider new, more environmentally friendly shower heads and toilets to save water.
  • Never put anything down a drain or garbage disposal that could instead go into the trash.
  • Use plain old white vinegar to clean hard water deposits from fixtures instead of harsh chemicals.
  • Take care of leaks right away.
  • Ask us to install stainless steel or “flood control” supply lines for all faucets.
