How do I remove a hair clog in my bathroom sink? Disconnect the pipe under the sink and then you can lift out the Pop-Up to remove the hair and debris.
Is it safe to use chemicals to clean a clogged pipe? Never use a chemical cleaner to remove a clog from the pipes. The cleaner will damage your pipes and discolor the finish on sinks and toilets. If a clog will not plunge clean, chemicals will not work either.
Is there a correct or incorrect way to use a plunger? Most people, including plumbers, do not know how to properly use a plunger. When you have a clog, it is there because it cannot go any further. Forcing air and water against the clog will not move it. In order to clean the clog, you need to lower the plunger to the bottom of the toilet and then use a strong upward motion. If a vacuum is created properly, it will cause the clog to pull away from the obstruction. Once the vacuum created by the plunger is broken, you can then attempt to push the clog through the drain to clear.
What is the safest way to clean a Garbage Disposal? Don’t ever stick your fingers down a garbage disposal! Even if there is no power supplied to the circuit, the stationary blades are very sharp and could easily cause injury. Using ice is a safe method of removing grease or any food debris that may cling to the blades.
Why do I not have good water pressure in my kitchen and bathroom faucets? Kitchen and Bathroom Faucets have an aerator where the water comes out. Over time, small deposits build up and restrict water flow. The aerator will unscrew from the faucet and can be cleaner or replaced if needed.
Is it safe to use cleaning chemicals in the top tank of my toilet? Never place chemicals in the top tank of your toilet. The chemicals will cause the Rubber and Moving parts to break down causing the toilet to run or leak.
Why don’t I have good water pressure? Check faucet filter first, it can be cleaned or replaced if needed.
Water Heater Tips
Quick Tip: We recommend flushing your water heater at least once a year. By flushing your water heater, you can eliminate any sediment that has built up in the tank, which can reduce performance, efficiency, and lifespan.
What do I do in case of an emergency?
- Turn off the water heater as safely and as quickly as possible: If you have a gas-powered heater, turn the dial atop the thermostat to “off”. For electric water heaters, you can stop the flow of power by flipping the appropriate circuit breaker to “off”.
- Turn the knob at the top of the water heater tank to stop the supply of water.
- If necessary, drain the tank by attaching a hose to the drain outlet. Run the hose away from the house to prevent hot water from damaging your property, and ensure an adequate down-slope to allow for proper drainage.

There are a number of sewer-related problems that can arise. Some of the most common problems found in sewer lines are:
Roots – Tree roots can penetrate your pipes, causing progressive damage to the sewer lines that could require replacement if left to continue.
Broken Pipes – Old pipes can freeze or break with enough time and force. If your sewer drainage system is cracked or broken, sewage could back up into your yard; if a blockage occurs inside the drain, waste could potentially back up into your home.
Blockage – Whether from debris or inadequate drainage, a blockage is among the most common sewer-related problems facing homeowners. If you need professional assistance, we can locate and remove the blockage safely.
Corrosion – Older pipes will channel, erode, and eventually break. De-scaling with high-pressure water can help to remove some of this buildup, but eventually the pipe with thin and break. We recommend PEX pipe for all sewer drainage systems.
Bellied/Sagging/Shifted Pipes – As the ground shifts over time, and as freeze-thaw cycles take their toll on your sewage system, pipes can shift and sag (often called a “bellied” pipe) which can cause pools of water. Pooling water can cause poor drainage, or can even cause the pipe to break, leading to more extensive repairs.
Leaking Joints – As pipes shift over time, the joints can become misaligned. Small breaks in the seams can lead to water leakage or a more significant breakage in the pipe. We can locate and repair any leaking joints before larger repairs are needed.
