Yes, Mr. Rooter Plumbing is a locally owned and operated insured, licensed, and bonded plumbing company.
There are a couple of possible reasons why your toilet is not flushing. It could be because there is insufficient water in the toilet tank. It could also be that the rubber flapper is damaged or the chain is not connected to the flush handle.
A running toilet is a symptom of a plumbing issue, or it could be due to a damaged flapper in the toilet tank. A running toilet can waste hundreds or even thousands of gallons of water throughout the year, costing you in water bills.
If your toilet is overflowing, then you might have a clog. Do NOT force flush. Pull out your drain snake or plunger and get to work, or call Mr. Rooter Plumbing to let a plumber take care of it.
The only things that should be flushed down the toilet are pee, poo, and toilet paper. We even advise against 3-plied toilet paper. This means NO wet wipes, paper towels, hygiene products, hair, cat litter, or anything else!
Low water pressure can be indicative of a clog in the water line. This can be due to sediment buildup or even mineral buildup. A whole-house water filtration system can help.
If your plumbing pipes are old, then they might be rusting or corroding. This can lead to discolored water. Cloudy water, meanwhile, can be caused by air bubbles. These should go away after setting the glass of water aside for a minute or so.
If you are finding chalky substance on your faucets and silverware, it could be because of calcium buildup, also called limescale. This is a result of “hard water.” A water softener can help eliminate the surplus minerals in your water.
Scan your walls, ceilings, and floors for water stains, warping, peeling paint, and mold or mildew. Also, check your water bills to see if there are any unusual spikes in water usage. Mr. Rooter Plumbing does offer professional leak detection and leak repair services.
A slow-draining sink is due to clogs in the drains. Rinse drains with hot water after use and flush drains with vinegar and baking soda once every couple of months to keep drains clear. We also recommend professional drain cleaning once every two to three years.
If you have a conventional water heater with a tank, then remember to flush out the water once or twice a year. Mineral buildup in the tank can cause scaling, leading to a host of issues including overheating and unusual sounds.
Conventional tank-style water heaters collect tens of gallons of water in the tank and heat it all at once. If you use a lot of hot water, then you can expect to wait some time for the water to heat up. If you don’t use your water heater frequently and it is slow to heat, then your water heater may be due for maintenance.
Tankless water heaters, also called demand-type water heaters, are quicker and can be more efficient. However, they are restricted in the gallons of water they can heat per minute. Mr. Rooter Plumbing is happy to help you choose the right size.
The average water heater can go about ten to twelve years before it must be replaced. If your water heater is frequently breaking down, then it might be more cost-effective to have it replaced. Mr. Rooter Plumbing offers water heater replacement and water heater installation services.
If you live in a low-lying area prone to flooding, then a sump pump is a great investment. These are installed at the lowest point of your home, usually the basement, and they pump away excess water and moisture away from your property.
