Professional Drain Cleaning in Kildeer
A clogged drain is one of the nastiest and most common plumbing problems homeowners face. Every day, food particles, debris, cooking oil, and hair find their way into the plumbing system, and it doesn’t take long before your drain is backed up.
The licensed plumbers at S and J Plumbing have the advanced tools, experience, and education to remove any drain clog successfully and safely.
But how do you know when to call a plumber to clean your drains? Here’s what to watch for.
- Foul odors coming out of the drain
- Standing water in the sink, tub, or shower
- Contaminated sewer water backing up
- Burst pipes or persistent leaks
- A toilet that won’t flush
While many people resort to liquid drain cleaners, it’s safer for your plumbing system to call a professional. Liquid drain cleaners use highly corrosive chemicals that will eat through your pipes if you use them too often, causing leaks and eventually bursts.
Professional plumbers use methods like augers and hydro-jetting to safely remove clogs without damaging your plumbing.
Don’t take chances with drain clogs; call the plumbing experts at S and J Plumbing.
Signs You Need Water Heater Repair
Your water heater is the unsung hero appliance of your household, working day after day to supply your family with hot water whenever they want. However, like all appliances, the more work they do, the sooner they wear out and need repairs. Here are the most common signs that your water heater needs a little TLC.
If the water coming from the tap is rusty, it could mean there’s a problem with the pipes or that your water heater is rusting. Most water heaters have a component called a sacrificial anode rod. It’s sacrificial because it attracts particles of iron, limestone, and other minerals that cause the metal to rust. The rod corrodes, so your tank doesn’t. However, many people forget to change the anode rod every few years, and once consumed, your tank isn’t protected and can rust. Replacing the anode rod is easy, but it could void your water heater’s warranty if you don’t let a professional do the job.
It’s normal for your water heater to drip from condensation. However, what’s not normal is for water to leak from the bottom of the tank. As your water heater heats, the metal expands and can weaken over time, causing water leaks. If water leaks, it’s time to spring for a new water heater.
Inconsistent Water Temperature
Do you notice that your hot water is scalding one day and lukewarm the next? If you’re dealing with irregular or inconsistent water temperatures, it could mean that a heating element is going bad or a problem with the thermostat. Call a plumber to determine the issue and fix it.
As a homeowner, you’re probably used to all kinds of odd noises around the house so much that you ignore them. However, if your water heater is making popping, gurgling, or rumbling sounds, it usually means there’s too much sediment buildup in the tank, which needs to be flushed.
The best way to keep your water heater from needing significant repairs is by calling a plumber for annual maintenance.
