Not every issue with plumbing equipment constitutes a true emergency. When time is of the essence, no which situations require a call to an emergency plumber. here are some of the more common plumbing issues that qualify as plumbing emergencies:

  • Sump pump failure
  • Burst pipes
  • Sewer line backup
  • Failed shutoff valves to the water mains
  • No hot water from water heaters
  • Frozen water lines during cold weather

Do you know what to do if a plumbing emergency happens in your home? Anytime you have a water leak, whether it is cold water or hot water, you want to close the valve on the water supply pipe as soon as possible. Doing so well prevent more water from spilling out into your home, raising the potential for water damage.

If you have a fixture leaking, like a toilet or faucets, individual shut off valves are typically located underneath or behind these fixtures and closing them will disconnect water to this equipment only.  If water pipes leak throughout the home, it’s best to close the shut-off valves on the main plumbing pipe that supplies water to your home. This is typically located near the point where add pipe enters your home from the municipal water line or your private well.

Do You Need to Call a Plumber?

Some homeowners are more than capable of completing certain plumbing installation and repair work around the house. If you have the skills necessary to do so, performing these tasks on your own can be a successful DIY project.

The plumbers at Buckeye Heating & Cooling are always ready to help out when needed and will ensure the job is completed correctly so that no damage is done to your home or to your plumbing supplies.

Avoid Household Plumbing Problems

Certain plumbing problems occur over time as a part of normal use and wear-and-tear such as corrosion of galvanized steel pipe, copper pipe, and pipe fittings, or a drain that has become clogged. Even so, there are things you can do to help maintain the home’s plumbing infrastructure and minimize these problems. Below are a few maintenance tips that will help you avoid many common plumbing issues around the house.

Drain Maintenance

  • Avoid the use of chemical drain cleaners if you have a dream that has become clogged. These products may actually cause damage to drain components and piping.
  • Do not pour fats, grease, or oil down the drain. This material should be disposed of in your trash can.
  • Make sure to keep certain items out of your garbage disposal and place them in the trash. Debris like bones, coffee grounds, eggshells, and more can either clog up or damage the garbage disposal as well as contribute to a clog in the drains.
  • The only item that should be flushed down the toilet is toilet tissue. Products like diapers, wet wipes, and sanitary items should be disposed of in the trash can.

Water Heater Maintenance

If you have a tank style water heater, these water heaters require annual flushing to remove debris such as rust and mineral deposits that settle in the tank and cause corrosion as well as reduced energy efficiency.

If you are not in the regular habit of flushing your water heater, don’t start to do so all of the sudden if the system is older. Suddenly flushing the water heater after years of deposit buildup can lead to leaks and water damage to the floor and wood construction materials in the house.

Reset the water heater’s thermostat to 120 degrees or lower. Doing so will help the appliance save energy and prevent burns due to scolding hot water.

Simple Fixes for Common Plumbing Issues

For many homeowners, their first instinct is to place a call to a plumber if a part of the plumbing system is not working correctly. However, some issues are quite minor and can actually be fixed with a little elbow grease if you know how to do so. Attempting minor plumbing repairs yourself before calling in a professional can save you significant time as well as money.

Buckeye Heating & Cooling’s plumbers offer some expert advice for fixing minor plumbing issues around the house. Give these tips a try before you call us and schedule a repair appointment – you could fix the problem with no wait and save extra money to

Stop Leaks

If the flow rate of a leak is minor, you may be able to fix it using fiberglass tape or plumbing putty. These products can help put an end to leaks around fixtures and fittings temporarily, saving water until you are able to have professional repairs made. If you notice wet spots that indicate a leak behind a wall in your house, under the floor, or in the attic, this is a situation where you’ll want to call a plumber right away.

Remove Drain Clogs

Clogged drains can limit or stop the use of your sinks and fixtures. Minor clogs can be removed using a few different methods.

  • If you have a clogged toilet, pour a bucket of hot water down into the toilet bowl from waist height. The water’s heat as well as gravity can help push the clog a through the pipe so you can access the toilet drain again.
  • When sink drains back up or drain slowly, fix clogs with natural remedies. Add 1 cup baking soda and 1 cup white vinegar down into the drain and allow this mixture to sit for about a half hour to an hour. Next, flush the mixture through the drain with hot water to break up the clog and push it through.
  • Adding a quart of Dawn dish soap liquid down a clogged drain can provide lubrication to remove and dislodge a clog. Flush the pipe with hot water to help move the clock forward in the system.
  • You can use a plunger on clogs in toilets as well as sinks and bathtubs. Be sure to use a toilet or flanged plunger for toilet and a cup plunger for sinks and tubs.

Solve Water Pressure Problems

Do you experience low water pressure from faucets or shower heads? This can be caused by mineral deposits that build up in the fittings and fixtures over time due to the flow water. Removing these deposits can restore water flow and good water pressure.

For shower heads, add a cup of white vinegar to a plastic bag and fit the bag over the shower head, closing at with a rubber band. Leave this device to soak overnight. The vinegar should dissolve the minerals and remove them from shower heads to restore normal water pressure.

Sink faucets often have attached fittings called aerators which add air to water flow for efficiency. Aerators can become clogged due to minerals as well. These fittings can be removed from faucets and cleaned using a toothbrush or soaked in vinegar.

Stop Running Toilets

Does your toilet continue to run and waste water? If so, give the handle a little jiggle to see if this will close a flapper that has jammed in the open position.

If the toilet is still running, remove the lid and look inside the tank. Check the chain that attaches the flapper to the flush handle – it maybe kinked or wrapped around a component, preventing it from closing the flapper.

Check the toilet float and float arm. If it is positioned above the waterline, bend the arm slightly downward so that the float sits atop the water. This should shut off the water supply.

If these solutions don’t stop your toilet from running, the flapper which closes the opening between the tank and bowl may not be forming a good seal. Feel for debris around the opening that could be preventing a seal. If the flapper is cracked, it will need to be replaced.
