Plumbing FAQs

  • Why is my toilet overflowing?

There are several potential causes for a toilet that overflows. They include a clogged drain, an improperly adjusted float, or a blocked vent pipe. To temporarily stop overflows, turn off the water valve located near the base of the toilet in the back. It is the silver knob that is attached to the flexible pipe that is coming out of the ground behind your toilet.


  • Should I install a tankless water heater?

Most people can use a traditional water heater with no issues. However, tankless water heaters never run out of hot water and save you money on your energy bills.


  • How can I prevent my pipes from freezing?

Freezing pipes can cause the pipe to crack or break completely. There are a few things you can do to prevent your pipes from freezing such as insulating pipes and letting a slow drip from your faucets during cold nights.


  • Why is my garbage disposal running but not working?

Garbage disposals allow us to put food waste down the drain with no fear of clogs. However, sometimes they will turn on but not work. There are several causes for this. It may be a jammed shredding plate or an electrical issue.


  • How long does it take to install a water heater?

Replacing a hot water tank generally takes two to three hours to complete. It takes about 45 minutes to an hour to drain, disconnect, and remove the old water heater. The time it takes for the installation of the new hot water tank varies.

A hydrostatic test is a method of testing the strength and integrity of vessels such as fuel tanks, plumbing, and gas cylinders.
