FREQUENTLY ASKED PLUMBING SERVICE QUESTIONS
When it comes to commercial and residential plumbing, our team at Bill Metzger Plumbing has seen and solved it all! We know that you probably don’t even think about your home’s plumbing system very often, until something breaks and you’re forced to find a solution. That’s why we’ve compiled some of the most frequently asked questions we receive from our customers in the San Clemente, CA area.
A running toilet usually means there’s an issue with the flapper inside your toilet tank. If your toilet handle gets stuck, the flapper will remain open, allowing water to continuously flow into the bowl. If jiggling the handle doesn’t fix the problem, try tightening, oiling, or replacing your toilet’s handle.
If you have a stubborn bathtub clog that is causing water to pool at your feet when you shower, try using a snake instead of a plunger. This will reach down into the drain and pull out any hair or debris that may be contributing to the clog.
The most common cause for a faucet leak is a corroded gasket, o-ring, or valve. Typically this is an easy fix, and the parts can be replaced without replacing the whole faucet. If the leak persists, it’s probably best to call in the professionals for leak detection and repair services.
The best thing about tankless water heaters is that they never run out of water. Tank-style heaters can only heat a certain amount of water at a time, while the newer, tankless water heaters can heat an unlimited amount of water as it runs through the system. As an added bonus, they save you money by heating your water on demand, rather than heating an entire tank that you may or may not use.
Insulating your pipes is the best way to prevent freezing. When water collects in your pipes and the temperatures dip below freezing, the water freezes as a result, which can lead to busted or cracked pipes. If you can’t get to your pipes to insulate them, you could leave your water on a slow drip to keep water passing through them. Another option is installing freeze-proof hose bibbs, which utilize a pipe where the water supply is close to the interior of the home, keeping the pipes warm enough to prevent freezing.
You may think that your shower or tub uses the most water in your home, when actually it is probably your toilet. This is because toilets are used more frequently, so it’s important to keep them in good shape and free of any leaks.
