why is my toilet constantly running?
My toddler flushed my keys... now what?
how can i prevent clogged drains?
There are a few things you can do to prevent clogged drains:
Never pour grease, butter or oil down the drain.
Use sink strainers in the kitchen sink to catch ingredients like coffee grounds, flour, grains and seeds from going down the kitchen drain.
Use strainers in bathroom sinks, showers and tubs to catch hair and soap debris.
Run water before, during and 10-15 seconds after starting the garbage disposal.
If you notice a slow drain, take action immediately before it gets worse.
Clean calcium buildup from showerheads and faucets.
Watch what you flush. Paper towels, baby wipes, dental floss, gum, feminine hygiene products, etc. can cause blockages and backups.
why does my toilet smell funky?
A funky smell is an indication of a bigger problem. Hidden leaks result from overly strained or clogged toilets and can cause a multitude of issues. A hidden leak that’s left unchecked can quickly raise your water bill, cause severe damage behind your walls or under the floor, and may result in mold growth. If you smell something funky, give us a call to find the source and fix the leak.
hOW CAN i TELL IF i HAVE POLY-b PIPING?
Check the pipes running to the water meter, those coming from the top of the water tank, or under your sink . If the pipes are grey plastic with copper connections, it is likely that your home has poly-b tubing.
