Gallons can quickly be wasted if the drip is constant and large enough.

Cheap fixtures, flimsy installation, aggressive use, high water pressure, corrosion in water supply system, and debris being sent through the faucet are all common causes.

Check your meter to see if the red triangle is spinning on it. If it is a digital meter, watch the last two digits to see if they are counting upwards while no one is using water in the house.

Your garbage disposal and/or kitchen sink lines maybe getting chocked down with grease and soap scum. We recommend calling a plumber to run a cable down your lines to clear them, then purchasing a BIO-1 degreaser product to clear the buildup in your sink drain lines.

Yes, that would be fine. Remember that all tankless water heaters should be descaled every year for proper maintenance.

At some point, the pressure got too high or the temperature too hot. A new one needs to be installed and an official diagnosis as to why it failed is recommended so that it can be avoided in the future.

Tankless hot water heaters are amazing. The question is how set up are you for one to keep the installation cost down? New tankless water heaters are designed to fit the average set of the standard 40-gallon gas tank. The real complications arise when water heaters are located in a place with no way to drain condensation or when venting out of the house is not straightforward. Other problems can also arise if the house is not equipped with the amperage needed for the electric tankless hot water heaters. Call us, and we can come take a look!

They call this water hammering. The technical term is hydraulic shock, and it occurs when water stops or changes directions suddenly. This can be caused by a multitude of things, but the most common cause is from pressure reducing valves going bad. Failing shower valves or faucet stems are also common problems.

Not unless you see water damage or have a high water bill.

Almost all leaks can get worse over time. Some galvanized lines can corrode in a certain way and seal themselves back up, but I wouldn’t rely on that.

Many faucet leaks can be repaired with new stems. However, with some older faucets which have corrosion caused by past leaks, a new faucet would be a better choice to make sure there are no other problems.

Sidewalk salt or a Rootx type product can be useful for the removal of roots in sewer lines outside the house underground. Blue toilet bowl cleaners can be damaging to rubber parts in toilet tanks and may cause them to leak.

If the toilet is running, the flapper may not be sealing. Open the tank to make sure the chain hasn’t gotten tangled up or is under the flapper. If the flapper is sealed and the tank is running into the overflow, check to make sure the fill valve is set at a level where it seals below the overflow. If it is not shutting off, then it will need to be replaced.

Meat and peels can leave a bad smell afterwards, so we would recommend keeping those out.

Find your garbage disposal tool. It is a “Z” looking Allen wrench (any ¼” allen wrench will work). Once equipped with the proper tool, make sure disposal isn’t on. Insert the tool into the center slot on the bottom of the disposal (underneath the sink). Attempt to twist tool clockwise and counterclockwise. If the blades loosen up, check to see if anything was lodged in the disposal. Making sure the disposal is still off, remove any objects from the disposal. Then go back underneath the disposal, push the red button on the bottom of the disposal. Now run some water and attempt to turn on the disposal. If that doesn’t work, call us.

All water heaters have a loss of efficiency during cold winter months due to water lines running beneath the cold ground underneath the house. If this is affecting your hot water supply you may need a new, more efficient water heater.

First, you need to stop the water flow to the toilet. If you are able, shut off the toilet at the supply stop. Make sure the tank is sealed from the bowl. Then, attempt to plunge the toilet with a plunger. If that doesn’t work, see if you have a sewer line cleanout in the yard. Open the cleanout to release water outside into your yard instead of into your house. Beware, there may be head pressure in the drain line. Then, call a plumber to auger out the lines.
