Improving Your Plumbing System with Repair Services – Part 2

Sewer RoddingIn our last post, we covered three issues that you might notice that require a plumber’s assistance. Understanding these issues and making sure that you contact the plumber as soon as you notice them can be the difference between a simple repair and a costly replacement. The talented crew at Courtesy Plumbing is always working hard to ensure that you are satisfied with the services we provide. We have put together an additional list to help you be proactive when it comes to potential plumbing issues:

  • Slow Drains – When your drains start to move slowly, it is crucial that you contact a plumber to assist you with your problem. Reaching for a container of drain cleaning fluid may seem like a good idea, but this chemical can cause additional complications, such as pipe corrosion issues.
  • Sewage Smells – Have you noticed that your drain smells like rotten eggs at all times? This problem could be the sign of a variety of issues, such as broken vents or sewer pipes. You do not have to live with this smell. There are things we can do to take care of it for you.
  • Gas Smells – If you use gas in your water heater and notice a gas smell, seek assistance right away. The leak could hurt you and your family members.

Three Plumbing Tasks Every Homeowner Should Know How to Do

Do you have small plumbing problems in your home? It is not always necessary to call a plumber.Sewer Rodding Take a look at these three tasks all homeowners should be able to perform:

Unclogging Toilets – You should not have to call a plumber every time you have a toilet clog. Every homeowner should have a simple plunger to help them with the problem. If you are feeling particularly ambitious, you can purchase an auger to help you with the issue.

Dripping Faucets – When you are dealing with dripping faucets, you should do what you can to take care of the issue before it becomes a more significant problem. If you have a compression faucet, you can buy a rubber washer to seal the leak. On the other hand, a new O-ring will take care of a leak on a washer-less faucet.

Running Toilet – Most running toilet issues are caused by a problem with your floater switch or a faulty stop valve. If jiggling the handle does not work, then you can try replacing the entire assembly to take care of the problem. Please note that the toilet water in the tank is clean, so do not be afraid to get your hands wet.
