Commonly Asked Plumbing Questions

Home owners and businesses face many plumbing related issues over the years. Some of these issues can be addressed yourself, but others require a trained professional who will be able to identify the problem and offer a timely resolution. Below are some of the frequently asked questions we get from our customers that you might find useful.

Why is my tap dripping?

More often than not, the cause of a leaky tap is a simple one. Usually, the internal components simply need to be replaced or rebuilt. This is something that some individuals may know how to do themselves, but if not, it’s best to have a plumber look it over to ensure its reassembled correctly.

Why is my drain always getting clogged?

If you are not conscious about what you’re putting down your drains, then this is going to leak to a blockage. This is especially true of kitchen sinks which often have food scraps and other contaminates flushed down the pipes. For bathrooms, the culprits are typically oil residue from shampoos and soaps as well as hair.

What should I do if my water heating is leaking?

This can prove to be a rather serious problem as it usually means the bottom of your tank has rusted. If this is the case, there aren’t really any repair options, which means you will have to look at getting the whole system replaced.

Should I fix my leaky toilet?

You might be surprised to learn that a leaking toilet can actually add $100 to your yearly water bill. Not only that, but it’s also a nuisance to deal with puddles around your toilet every time you go in to do your business. So if your toilet is leaking, this is most likely due to a part of the mechanism being out of order which will have to be replaced.

What’s safe to put in my garbage disposal?

Clogged garbage disposals can prove a frequent and irritating problem for homeowners. It’s recommended to always run cold water when you’re grinding so help move any waste completely down the drain line. Residue from fats and oils actually congeal in cold water, meaning they can be more effectively flushed through the system.
