When To Call A Plumber

When To Call A Plumber

Know when to call a plumber. Residential plumbing problems often require a plumber but we recommend that you troubleshoot them in advance. The most common residential plumbing problems are:

  • Clogged toilets
  • Clogged drains
  • Leaky faucets
  • Leaky pipes
  • Running toilets
  • Water heater leaks

Troubleshooting Plumbing Tips

Clogged toilets – A regular plunger is often the solution. Try this first.
Clogged drains – Kitchen drains have a garbage disposal. Check for larger debris and obstructions before using the garbage disposal. Bathroom drain clogs are cured by removing the drain stopper to clear the obstruction.
Leaky faucets – Check the faucet to ensure the handle works properly.
Running toilets –Remove the top of the tank to make sure the flap is all the way down. Also check the float position. The float gets stuck causing the toilet to run.

Drain Maintenance In Las Vegas

Drain Maintenance in Las Vegas

Drain maintenance in Las Vegas can be tricky because of the hard water. Mineral build up can cause drain clogs as easily as putting unwanted items in the drain. When on a job, we always provide the benefit of the doubt before inspecting a drain. Below are a few tips on what not to put down the drain.

Please Don’t Put These In The Drain

A few items we should never put down the drain are eggshells, coffee grounds, fruit rinds, vegetable stalks and medications. While it may seem like the place to put them, the drain doesn’t always take kindly to these items. When placed in there repeatedly, not only does a drain clog occur, sometimes there is a gas build up leading to odor coming from the drain.

Medications should never be flushed down the toilet or placed in the drain. Once flushed, they go directly into the water supply. The EPA (environmental protection agency) has a way to dispose of unwanted or expired medications, Click here for details

Keeping A Drain Clean

When a drain does have an odor or you have cleared a clogged drain, it’s a good idea to clean the drain thoroughly. This can be done by using the hottest water possible to loosen up debris and build up. We also recommend a little bit of baking soda followed by a bit of vinegar. Cleaning the drain regularly with these simple tips will help keep the water flowing all year long.
