Common Plumbing Questions

1. My drains are clogging. Why does that happen? Drains tend to become clogged every so often and if it is happening regularly it is probably because something is stuck inside and hasn’t been fully cleaned out. This often happens with shower drains. Hair gets stuck inside and when you clean it out, you may not get it all out and it will just build back up over time. Treating with some kind of drain cleaner can help or a professional will be able to clean the drain out.

2. When I have a leaky faucet, should I call a plumber? You don’t always need to call a plumber, sometimes it can be fixed at home, but for assurance, a plumber can be called and fix the problem right away. It is important not to wait for a leak though because it can end up raising your water bill.

3. My faucet keeps dripping, why does that happen? Sometimes when a faucet is leaking, it is because of something going wrong from within the component. It will probably need to be repaired or replaced. This is usually an inexpensive fix and will save you money in the long run.

4. Is it bad that my toilet keeps running? Yes, this is wasting your water and actually raising your water bill by hundreds of dollars a year.

5. Can I put any kind of food down my garbage disposal? This is a common misconception. Your garbage disposal is not a catch-all for any of your food, there are certain foods like high-fiber foods, that should never be put down your disposal. However, many biodegradable foods can go into the disposal without issue.
