We'll tell you what the other guys won't.
Does it drip continuously? It can most likely be re-built at a minimal cost. It could also be a result of excessive water pressure, or calcification build-up.
- Garbage Disposal
If it is not leaking, chances are it does not need to be replaced. Try the reset button on the bottom of the unit.
- High Water/Gas Bill
Toilet running? Faucet Dripping? Irrigation Leak? Slab Leak? Visually inspect water meter for movement. Any indications, give us a call and we will be happy to locate and repair it for you.
- Main Line Stoppage
Is everything in your home backing up into the tub/toilet? Walk outside and locate your sewer clean-out (if your house has one). If you carefully remove the cap, all sewage will drain to the outside, rather than all over your new carpet or wood flooring. Give us a call, and we will take care of clearing the line for you.
- Tankless Water Heater
Consider the energy savings with "On Demand" hot water. Currently your water heater kicks on multiple times throughout the day in order to maintain the pre-selected temperature, where the tankless runs only when supply of hot water is needed. Something to consider.
Does it run frequently? Could be a water level adjustment or a flapper replacement.
- Water Heater
Check for corrosion at all fittings/connectors. Flushing unit at-least twice a year could extend the life by up to 40%.
Every customer's individual needs are important to us at American Plumbing Services, Inc. Our focus of providing quality plumbing services combined with honesty has made us the first choice of many residential and commercial customers within the Antelope Valley.
