Water Heater Repair and Replacement
When one of our plumbers replaces your water heater, making sure the water heater complies with federally mandated energy-efficiency standards and is the right fit for your needs are their concerns. A new water heater is an expensive purchase that will last you 11 to 20 years, but that upfront cost is balanced by the 16% it saves you on your water bills. We will help you decide whether to replace your current system with a conventional, tankless, or hybrid water heater, depending on your home and the water demand.
Call us for water heater repairs if your water heater is not supplying adequate hot water, taking a long time to heat water, leaking from the water tank, or making odd noises. Call us for maintenance, service, or replacement of your water heater.
The signs you have a clogged drain are water backup in the sink drain, pools forming around the shower drain, water draining slowly, toilet water bubbling, drains making gurgling sounds, and a foul smell coming from your drains. To clear your drains, turn on your faucet and fill your sink partially. Be sure the plug the other drain if you have a double sink and plug the overflow hole in the bathroom sink. Use a cap plunger several times to remove the clog. If the clog is in your toilet, use a flange plunger. Move the plunger in a vertical direction, moving straight up and down to get proper suction.
Stay away from using corrosive chemicals when dealing with clogged drains. These chemicals may seem like a magic fix, but they cause corrosion in the pipes and lead to much larger problems, like leaking pipes. If you have persistent clogs, it may be a symptom of a bigger issue. Call Mr. Rooter to talk about our affordable maintenance plans or any plumbing issues you have.
