We know that not everyone is ready to call the plumber just yet. If your situation is not an emergency, you can check out some possible temporary resolutions to a clogged toilet, drain or dripping faucet below. Otherwise, give us a call and we’ll do a great job at an honest price for all of our plumbing services in the Pittsburgh area.
1Why does my drain get clogged?
Your drain can get clogged for a variety of reasons. Most commonly, patricles get washed down the drain and start to collect to the surface. This restricts the water flow through the rest of the pipe and may cause it to get backed up. If your issue is the kitchen sink, try some baking soda and vinegar without water and let it sit for a moment before rinsing.
2What causes my faucet to drip?
A leaky faucet may be the product of a broken or damaged seal. It may be that you’re just not putting the handle in the off position too. Most of the time, this is due to a damaged or worn out rubber washer. We can fix that in no time!
3How can I prevent leaking pipes?
Fist things first, cut of the water if possible. Leaking pipes can become a serious problem if they’re untreated. Give us a call and we’ll give you a free estimate, it’s that simple! 412-897-4210
4Is it a big deal if my toilet is running?
Yes, this can be a big deal. Lift the back of the tank and see if the flange and plug are working properly. The reservoir should fill, lifting a float which stops the continues water flow. If this all looks good, give us a call and we’ll check it out.
5How long should a water heater last?
Most water heaters will last about 8 years depending on the type you have at your home. It may be worth while to get it checked out if you’re unsure of the age or notice problems here and there. If you have cold water only, give us a call.
