You may know of plumbing systems, but how much do you actually know about plumbing systems? They’re an intricate collection of some of the most critical parts of your home and can include anything from a tankless water heater to your sewer lines and toilets. As complex as they can be, homeowners rightfully have many questions for our plumbing contractors, and at Pridemark Plumbing, we have the answers you need. So before you’re stuck having to research broken pipes, the effects of a small leak, or how to get help when your toilet runs longer than normal, check out our plumbing FAQs!
How Much Does a Plumber Charge to Replace a Toilet?
The cost of replacing a toilet will vary depending on the job’s complexity and the make and model you choose. For example, low-flow toilets will likely run a higher cost, while simply installing a new toilet (rather than replacing an older unit) will generally cost less. Our plumbing professionals can help you fix running toilets and break down the cost to align you with the most beneficial option.
Does My Business Need Plumbing Insurance?
Yes, your business likely needs plumbing insurance. Plumbing systems are complex and can be easily damaged by natural disasters or other unforeseen events. Depending on the size and complexity of your system, it’s wise to look into different types of insurance that could provide protection against property damage or loss in the event of a plumbing emergency. Companies like ours require plumbing insurance to protect against any plumbing issues or mishaps while on the job. But you should also protect your business with insurance.
Does My Home Warranty Cover Plumbing Leaks?
Yes, many home warranties include plumbing leaks in their plans. Leaks are a significant inconvenience, so they’re something a good home warranty will cover. That said, you want to review your plan to ensure that plumbing repairs are included. Make sure to do this before a plumbing problem arises, as you don’t want to get caught flat-footed, and many plan changes may take time to enact.
Why Is My Faucet Dripping?
Over time, the washers and seals within your faucet can wear down and may need to be repaired or replaced. Leaky faucets are usually a straightforward and quick fix, so don’t put them off any longer. Call Pridemark Plumbing, and we’ll take a look at your kitchen sink faucet or bathroom plumbing fixtures that start to leak.
Why Has The Pressure In My Shower Dropped?
Low pressure can be caused by damaged or clogged pipes, wear and tear to the shut-off valve, or a leak elsewhere in the plumbing system. Whatever the cause, a drop in water pressure is a warning sign that something’s not quite right. A professional plumber can quickly diagnose the problem and advise you about your options.
Can I Ignore My Running Toilet?
You might be able to get used to the sound of running water, but did you know that a running toilet can add as much as $100 to your annual water bill? At Pridemark Plumbing, we can quickly repair or replace your flushing mechanism at very little cost, saving you water, money, and sleepless nights!
What Can I Do To Avoid Clogged Drains?
One of the main things you can do is be careful about what you’re putting down the drain or your garbage disposal. In the kitchen, you should avoid too much oil, fat, and grease going down the drain, as well as high-fiber foods.
In the bathroom, the cause is likely to be an accumulation of hair or soap residue. Regularly using a liquid or gel drain cleaner can help reduce this build-up, but it’s worth calling Pridemark Plumbing to help clear any larger or more stubborn blockages so you don’t cause further problems.
Another great way to avoid clogged drains? Try getting routine maintenance for your systems. Routine maintenance can help prevent major issues and identify problems within your exterior, bathroom, or kitchen plumbing systems. Clogged drains can eventually lead to burst pipes and restrictions to your water supply. We can inspect your system and perform drain cleaning services that address the blockages within your drain line.
Why Can’t I Just Fix A Leak Myself?
It can be tempting to try and save time and money by fixing your plumbing problems yourself. Still, many seemingly simple issues are an indication of a more severe plumbing problem elsewhere in the system. For instance, you may be able to fix a leak or clear a drain and solve the problem for some time, but if you haven’t dealt with the root cause, you will eventually end up with a much more extensive and costly repair job on your hands. So what are you to do when your drain cleaning problems start affecting your main sewer line or hot water heater?
By calling Pridemark Plumbers to properly diagnose and target the problem and to carry out any necessary repairs or replacements to the highest professional standards, you can save far more money and disruption in the long run. So sure, you might be able to fix a leak once or twice, but don’t let serious issues linger — call on an experienced plumber.
I Don’t Trust Plumbers. Why Should I Trust You?
Maybe you’re used to unreliable tradespeople who overcharge for simple plumbing services that don’t last and leave your home in a state of disarray when they’re finished. Or maybe you’re used to a water bill that won’t go down no matter what plumber you call. Plumbing problems are stressful, but the bane of most homeowners’ existence is trusting their plumbing system in the hands of contractors who talk the talk but can’t walk the walk.
