You might feel lost or shy when it comes to asking specific plumbing questions that may seem obvious. But have no fear, we have got the answers to common questions you need here! Even if it is a small problem, it can quickly turn into a disaster, so don’t wait and ask away.
Why are My Pipes Leaking? Looking underneath your sink and find that a pipe is leaking water? It’s usually because of built-up residue coming from the P-trap pipe which can easily be removed by loosening the nuts. After that, clean out any gunk that is remaining and re-attach the pipe. You can also use plumbers tape and epoxy putty to stop leaking temporarily.
Why is My Sink/Tub Clogged? Pipes that are backed up by things like hair or gunk prevent the normal flow of water in your drain, which can become frustrating. So how do you know what’s under there? The only way to find out is to get what is in, out. You can try necessary home remedies such as using a plunger, making a vinegar/baking soda solution to pour down the drain or using the old metal hook method to push, twist and pull out anything that is stuck. Remember to protect your drains by putting a strainer to catch anything from falling through.
Why is My Water Pressure Low? There can be minor or serious reasons as to why your water pressure is low, things like checking the shut-off valve is closed or taking out any particles that are blocking the drains. If your blockage problem is too severe, you may need to call a plumber.
What is the Correct Temperature for My Water Heater? Nothing is worse than wanting to take a nice, hot shower and turning the faucet all the way to red only for the water to not be the temperature you were anticipating. You want to make sure you set your temperature to a safe range. The recommended temperature is 120 degrees Fahrenheit, but don’t exceed this limit or you run the risk of burning yourself with scalding hot water.
Why is My Water Bill Higher Than Usual? If your water bill is higher than usual, you may be surprised to find out that it might be those tiny drops of water coming from your tub, sink, pipes or even your sprinkler head. Also known as water waste, this is easily preventable by knowing where the source is coming from. Be sure to check that the toilet flapper and fill valve are working correctly and not broken. You can also check your water meter dial for any sudden changes in movement from the needle that indicates a leakage.

I called the number and had to leave a message. Within 10 minutes someone called me back. They came out within a few hours and fixed my drain. Clay, my technician, was professional, and knowledgeable with a great attitude (especially on a hot Friday afternoon)! Fixed my problem in no time. Their service is outstanding. And prices are reasonable for the area. I would definitely use them again!
Stephanie Mellott First of all, they were ON TIME. In fact, the first visit was early! A slab leak is scary, but within the week, I was scheduled for repair. It took a matter of hours. All of the plumbers were polite and worked quickly and cleanly. When the contractor came to assess the damage to the house, he was so impressed by the lack of damage to my home that he asked me for the name of ASAP twice! Highly recommend this company and their services.
