How Do I Check If I Have a Home Plumbing Leak?
If you think you have a leak in your home, there’s often an easy way you can check. Simply go out to your water meter and record the current level. Make sure no one in your home uses any water for a few hours, then simply go back and check the water meter again (it’s easiest to do the first check late at night, and then do the follow-up check early in the morning). If the water meter level has changed, and no one has used any water, chances are you probably have a leak.
Why Does My Hot Water Heater Not Work As Well During Winter Months?
Kansas City has some cold winter months, and thus it makes sense the water that enters your home is much colder than in Summer and Springtime. This often causes the hot water in your tank to lose a lot more heat when it mixes with the incoming cold water. Additionally, you may have sediment in your tank that’s hindering your water heater’s performance.
What Causes A Kitchen or Bathroom Faucet To Leak?
The most common thing our local plumbers discover when it comes to checking out a leaky faucet is corroded O-rings, gaskets, or valve seats. Together, these faucet parts are what hold back the water until the faucet is properly opened, so if one of them is corroded, you’ll often end up with a leaky faucet. Our plumbing contractors recommend that you or a professional inspect all the components of your faucet, including washers, O-rings or seals, and springs if it has them.
Is My Garbage Disposal Turn On but Not Work?
One of the most common issues we often hear about is a garbage disposal that appears to turn on and make a humming noise but won’t actually work to shred any food. There are a couple of reasons this could be, including an electrical issue, or the shredding plate being stuck, blocked, or jammed. Never stick your hand in the garbage disposal when it’s on, and always make sure it’s off before trying to dislodge anything that might be jamming it.
Why Is My Home’s Water Discolored?
Oftentimes, discolored water is associated with an aging water heater or rusty pipes. It usually is safe to drink, but we recommend calling a local Johnson County plumber to check it out. If it is red, yellow, or a rusty color it is often related to your water heater. blackish water is usually associated with mildew, and greenish water can be due to algae in the water supply as well.
