Almost every homeowner or renter has a few essential tools on hand to cope with minor plumbing emergencies. Many times, a clogged toilet or slow drain may only need a little elbow grease and a plunger to work as intended. If you’re handy around the house, you can generally tackle a small repair such as changing out a worn washer or replacing a drain cover.
However, bigger plumbing repair jobs need professional attention. Trying to repair some common issues such as slow drains or leaking toilets could lead to bigger problems later.

Common Plumbing Concerns:
Dripping Faucet – That dripping faucet not only wastes water, it wastes money on your water bill.
Leaky Pipes – While we see a lot of leaking pipes during the cold winter months, it’s also very common year-round! Most pipes will begin to leak near the joints, so keep an eye out for wet spots on the ground or ceiling. Water damage to your home can be quite costly, so leaky pipes are a necessity to fix right away.
Running Toilets – A running toilet can waste up to 200 gallons per day!
Low Water Pressure – A lot of older homes will experience low water pressure. It could be time for a new showerhead or you could have a hidden leak in your home. However, those are just a few of the many reasons for low water pressure.
Leaking Hose Bibb – A leaking hose bibb is very common in the spring and summer. After a long, cold winter many hose bibbs that aren’t protected can crack and begin to leak. We advise our customers invest in a frost-proof hose bibb, which can reduce the chances of having future leaks.
Slow or Clogged Drain – Stay away from any type of over-the-counter drain cleaner
Sump Pump Failure – A prolonged period of heavy rain can cause your sump pump to fail.
Water Heater Concerns – The average life of a water heater can be anywhere from eight to 12 years depending on yearly maintenance.
