WHY ISN’T IS THE WATER DRAINING FROM THE DISHWASHER?
When your dishwasher backs up, it’s usually due to a clog or buildup in the drain line. You could Run cold water and turn on your garbage disposal for a few seconds. If this does not remedy the issue, you may need to contact a professional to remove the clog, any food buildup, or debris and We don’t often think about the plumbing in our homes unless a problem arises. Although, when a plumbing issue does come up, we need assistance fast. Since most home Boston plumbing problems are not visible, it is not unusual for homeowners to let an issue go unnoticed until it has become a significant issue/concern.
Extreme plumbing Services can assist you with all your Boston plumbing needs, from installations to repairs, minor drips, and major leaks. Read our list below to gain insight into the top 5 most frequently asked Boston plumbing questions.
WHY IS MY TOILET CONTINUOUSLY RUNNING?
Did you know Running toilets are one of the most common Boston plumbing issues? It is caused by the flapper not making a proper seal around the flush valve in many instances. If the flapper is not sealing, check inside the tank to move the handle and seat the flapper to fix the issue. If your flapper is old or worn, it may need to be replaced. If the flapper doesn’t seal, the water will leak into the toilet; the tank will not fill with water to turn off the water supply, causing increased water usage and, ultimately, your water bill. A minor toilet tank rebuild is recommended to eliminate multiple failure points and ensure your toilet is properly working.
WHAT APPLIANCE USES THE MOST AMOUNT OF WATER IN THE HOME?
Contrary to popular belief, it’s not your washing machine or your dishwasher that’s using the most water. Your toilet is often the primary source of water usage in your home. Be sure to check that all toilets are running correctly with no leaks. Older toilets are also less efficient than newer models and use much more water per flush, so considering a more unique and more efficient toilet could save you money in the long run. Extreme Boston plumbing Services offers a wide array of toilets with complete installation by our certified and highly trained technicians; contact us today to get a plumber in your home and review your options to replace that old toilet!
WHAT ITEMS SHOULD I AVOID PUTTING IN MY GARBAGE DISPOSAL?
Garbage disposals can only break up soft debris. Soft Carrots, mashed potatoes, eggs, etc., are ok to put at your disposal. Things like coffee grounds, eggshells, bones, or any hard foods will damage the blades and jam the disposal. You should always run cold water to the disposal while helping break down the foods and flush through the sink.
