Q: Can I prevent drains from clogging?
A: Make sure you don’t rinse fats or cooking oils down the kitchen sink. Liquid fats eventually solidify in the cold pipes and create clogs. You can also fit your kitchen and shower drains with a strainer that stops soap, hair, and other items from passing through.
Q: My water heater doesn’t work the way it used to a few years ago. What is wrong?
A: Old water heaters start accumulating sediment and lime deposits. If these deposits are not removed periodically, the sediment will block. Drain water from the tank every three months. This helps in removing the sediment. Also, get your water heater checked by an experienced plumber every 2 years.
Q: Why is the water pressure low in my home and how can I rectify it?
A: Low water pressure can be caused due to several reasons. It could be due to a partially closed valve, a crimped water line or rusty galvanized pipes. You should call an experienced plumber who can identify the real cause and offer you feasible options.
Q: What causes a faucet to drip?
A: When faucets are used over years, they start dripping. In most cases, the faucets need to be repaired or replaced. Simply call a plumber who can install a good quality faucet in your home.
Q: Are there any hidden service costs?
A: We charge upfront for any type of plumbing services. We inform our customers about the costs associated with installation or repairing jobs before we undertake the job.
Q: Is it important to turn off the water connection of the entire house at the time of plumbing repair?
A: Yes, because there could be chances of water leaking into other areas of the house.
