1. Are bath bombs good for my plumbing?
While they’re not exactly good for your plumbing, they’re not bad for it either. If you take the right precautions, the occasional bath bomb won’t damage your pipes.
2. How do I get rid of spots on in my sink?
Those “spots” are actually mineral deposits and are likely being caused by hard water. While you can wipe them away every few days with a cleaning solution and washcloth, eliminate the problem forever by investing in a water softener.
3. Is Hydrojetting really worth it?
Yes! Chemical drain cleaners are horrible for your plumbing and the environment. Hydrojetting is an eco-friendly way to naturally eliminate clogs.
4. What do I do if water backs up into my home?
First things first, take a deep breath! A flood is one of the more serious plumbing issues homeowners run into, but they can be managed if you follow the right steps. Learn more over at our blog.
5. Are low flow fixtures worth the initial upfront cost?
Yes, they are! Because low flow fixtures use less water than traditional appliances, they save you money over time. Within just a few years, your low flow appliance will pay for itself.
6. Does my water heater need to be insulated?
If you’re someone who doesn’t like wasting money, your heater should absolutely be insulated.
7. What’s causing my low water pressure?
Low water pressure is most often caused by one of three things — mineral deposits, pipe corrosion, or a leak.
8. Can pliers also be used as wrenches in a pinch?
They may look the same but the two tools accomplish very different tasks. That’s why you should never use wrenches and pliers interchangeably.
