While we at Plumbing Medic invite you to give us a call at any time, we’ve created this list of plumbing FAQs to get you the answers you need fast. Below, you’ll find a list of common questions pertaining to plumbing:
What does a plumber do?
Plumbers can help you with more than clogs and leaks. Plumbers are experts on the installation and repair of pipes carrying everything from water to gas throughout your home or business. They assist in new construction projects, remodeling plans and more.
Why has my water bill increased?
If you’ve noticed an uptick in your water statements, there are several potential causes:
- House guests
- Seasonal demands
It’s important to call in a professional to rule out the possibility that you’re dealing with a leak. Otherwise, you could end up wasting a lot of water and even damaging your home.
How can I improve and prevent bad-smelling drains?
Your kitchen drain can start smelling bad when food particles become lodged in your garbage disposal and begin to decay. Turn on the faucet, and then turn on your disposal. While both are still running, place 2-3 cups of ice with lemon peel into your garbage disposal. Turn off the garbage disposal, and then turn off the water.
Where did my hot water go?
There’s almost nothing worse than running out of hot water. There are many different potential reasons for this problem:
- You’re running too many appliances at once (dishwasher, washing machine, shower, etc.)
- Your water heater is not big enough
- The pilot light has gone out
- The breaker has been tripped
It’s also possible that you’ve got a more serious problem on your hands. Your best bet is to contact a professional to offer advice and make any necessary repairs.
