do you have questions
It’s important to clear out the drains, which can be done with snakes and other equipment. You don’t want to pour chemicals down the drain as this could make the problem worse without meaning to do so.
The fix will depend on whether it’s actually a water hammer and the age of your home. Homes built before the 1960s have air chambers and a professional plumber will drain the water out of all of your home’s plumbing. If you have a home built after the 1960s, you should have water hammer arrestors in place – and these rarely fail.
If it’s not a water hammer, there could be an issue with sediment built up in the water heater or a water pressure problem. To ensure the problem is identified properly, it’s best to call a professional plumber and at Home Pros of Miami, Inc., we have a lot experience diagnosing such problems.
In some instances, the handle to the faucet is damaged. In other instances, it’s the valve itself that is damaged. You could try to diagnose and do the repair on your own, but you could end up stripping the valve as well as other parts. A plumbing professional can solve your leaking faucet problems quickly and without making multiple trips to the home improvement store.
There are a variety of reasons as to why you have a drain clog. A professional plumber can come out to diagnose the problem and see what’s causing the blockage. Once everything passes through the drain, the smell will be gone as well.
The fix is dependent on “why” the toilet continues to clog. The chain that connects to the flapper might need to be adjusted so that the flapper opens wide when you flush. There might also be issues with a plumbing vent or something stuck in the trap.
It’s best to call a plumber to get the problem diagnosed. Additionally, the fix might require taking the toilet off of the floor. If this is beyond your DIY capabilities, calling a plumber is going to be your best bet to avoid flooding and other problems.
There’s a sticker on your water heater that identifies the serial number as well as a date. The date might be coded, too, which would be the first letter and then the next two numbers. A would be January, B would be February and so on. The next two digits would be the year. Most water heaters are designed to last about 10 years, so if yours is coming up on that time, it might be a good idea to start looking at a replacement.
At Home Pros of Miami, Inc., we’re able to provide sewer line inspections for prospective home buyers as well as in older homes to help diagnose various plumbing problems that are being experienced inside the home.
