Plumbing Repairs You Should Not Ignore
Plumbing problems can occur at the most inconvenient time. While it may be easy to put those problems aside and move on with the rest of our busy lives, there are some issues that homeowners or businesses should never ignore.
Is your sink or shower taking longer to drain than normal? If so, you might be dealing with a clogged drain. It’s important to address this issue immediately in order to prevent what might become a more serious and costly repair.
For businesses with grease traps, it’s important to have them regularly pumped to keep your business running smoothly. Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Portland can scope your drain lines with a camera to identify the exact problem and properly determine the best solution. Our Portland plumbers also recommend using our natural, eco-friendly drain maintenance product to prevent future clogs as well.
Continuously Running Toilet
The first complaint most people have about a running toilet is typically the annoying noise it makes. However, that should be the least of worries because it can also increase the water bill. A running toilet is usually the result of a broken valve or a worn-out flapper. Call a professional plumber to inspect the toilet for an accurate diagnosis that way you can have peace of mind and avoid any more surprises.
Whether a faucet appears to be dripping slow or fast, any evidence of a leak should be taken care of to prevent it from becoming worse. A constant drip is not only wasting water and affecting your water bill, but it’s also a sign of worn-out integral parts in your faucet. Learn more about how much water you might be wasting with our drip calculator and call your local Portland plumber to get it fixed right away!
Irregular Water Heater Symptoms
A properly-running water heater never seemed so important until the day we run out of hot water. When it’s not working, there will be no warm showers and the dishwasher becomes useless. That’s why it’s crucial to keep an eye out for these warnings: rusty-colored water, extremely hot or lukewarm water temperatures, and corrosion on the tank or supply line. If your water heater isn’t past its expiration date, those are usually the first signs of a needed repair.
Besides these four issues, there are many more problems that require the skills of a licensed plumber. The best way to prevent future plumbing problems is to schedule an annual plumbing inspection.
