Common Plumbing Questions-Answered!

There are a lot of different items that make up your pluming system, including pipes, toilets, sinks and garbage disposals. Unfortunately, not every homeowner fully understands their plumbing system. Here are a few common plumbing questions and the answers to those questions.

When Should You Contact a Plumber for Drain Cleaning?

It is common for a plumbing fixture or pipe to get clogged. There are many ways to free these clogs on your own, including plungers, snakes and homemade or chemical drain cleaners (which are not recommended). If you have attempted to get rid of the clog and you cannot do so, or the clog comes back more than three times in a year, it is time to call in a plumber for professional drain cleaning.

Does a Leaking Faucet Really Need to Be Repaired or Replaced?

A faucet that is leaking may not seem to be a huge deal. As such, you may wonder if it really needs to be repaired or replaced. A leaking faucet should be repaired or replaced. Not only is the faucet wasting water, but the problem will only worsen with time. Repairing or replacing the faucet early on helps to prevent other issues later on.

Why Are Camera Inspections Best for Plumbing Problems?

Using a camera to inspect pipes can be expensive. However, it is the best option when a plumber doesn't know where an obstruction is, what is causing an obstruction or the condition of the pipes. The camera helps to point out the problem and where the problem is, so the plumber can repair the issue correctly and quickly. Ultimately, this helps to save money and time for everyone involved.
