My Water Heater makes a lot of popping noise, can you fix it?
According to the manufacturers, the average life expectancy of a tank type water heater is 10 to 14 years. Over the years of heating, a buildup of hard calcium will develop on the bottom of the tank and cause this rumbling popping noise, unfortunately flushing and draining the water heater, will not remove the buildup, usually it is time for a new Water Heater.
We keep hearing water dripping in the ceiling or wall after running water in the bath. Can you find the leak?
This is a widespread problem that is usually associated with a hot water copper re-piping. When hot water lines are strapped to a solid surface, the expansion of the water line as it heats up and the contraction as it cools down, will sometimes sound like water dripping.
Why is my toilet making a gurgling sound when I flush it?
This is a sign that the Main Sewer line is backing up, and you should have it checked as soon as Possible! Some toilets will continue running when backed up, and can cause major damage to your home.
Where do I turn off my water if there is a problem?
You should always know where your main water shutoff is, and if it works or not. Most shutoff valves are in the front of your home by the hose connection or near the garage. If you’re not sure how to turn off your water, you should call the water department or a plumber to check that it is working properly and to show you how to operate it.
I keep smelling Gas. Should I call a Plumber to check for a leak?
No! You should call your Gas service provider, or if it’s a strong smell, you should Call 911 and move away from the area. If the gas company shuts off your gas because of a leak, then you will need a Plumber to locate and repair the gas leak.
I came home and found my House flooded with water! what should I do?
You should first, turn off your main water shutoff valve, or water meter. Sometimes, a close Neighbor can help you with this. If these options aren’t available, then call your local water utility company .
