Frequently Asked Plumbing
& Drain Questions
In our years of service, we get a lot of the same questions when it comes to plumbing and drain issues. Whether it’s a clogged drain or sewer cleaning, odors and water temperature, if you have a question about plumbing, you may find the answer here:
My toilet is sluggish what should I do?
First, you should isolate the issue by seeing if the toilet is the only fixture that is sluggish. If only the toilet is clogged you can try and clear the obstruction with a plunger. If that fails the toilet will need further attention by a licensed plumbing technician. If all the fixtures are sluggish you could have a main line blockage or a failing septic system .
The water company says I have a water leak. What should I do?
HOW CAN I PROLONG THE LIFE OF ALL MY PLUMBING FIXTURES AND WATER HEATER?
WHAT CAUSES MY FAUCET TO DRIP?
HOW CAN I PREVENT LEAKING PIPES?
WHEN I USE MY DISHWASHER, WATER BACKS UP INTO THE GARBAGE DISPOSAL, WHY?
Water backing up into the garbage disposal and then the sink is generally caused by food that is left in the disposal. If you leave food particles in the disposal and then forget about them without grinding them up and then sending them through the drain pipes with a good amount of cold water, these food particles will clog up your drainage system.
Since the dishwasher and the garbage disposal share the same drainage pipes, you will have plumbing problems in the kitchen if you do not make sure that food particles from the disposal are cleared before using the dishwasher.
