Your home’s plumbing is a rather complicated system, and a lot can go wrong. The most common plumbing issues include dripping faucets, slow draining sinks, clogged bath or shower drains, clogged or running toilets, faulty water heaters, low water pressure, and jammed garbage disposals. The good news is that most of these issues do not constitute an emergency and can be easily remedied by the professional plumbers at Master Plumbers Heating and Cooling.

Hydro jetting is a professional drain cleaning method that can also be used to clean clogged sewer lines. Hydro jetting uses high water pressure to remove blockages that are otherwise difficult to eliminate.

Sometimes your drain or sewer line can be repaired, and other times it will require replacement. If your line cannot be cleaned or if there is extensive root infiltration, the line will need to be replaced. Some homeowners will replace their sewer line after dealing with one or two clogs, while others will spend thousands of dollars in repairs before finally replacing their lines.

Acid water and low pH levels can result in rusty green or blue stains in your bathtub. These issues are caused by high amounts of carbon dioxide in your water supply.

It gets tricky determining if economy settings on appliances will save you money. Sometimes these settings extend the lifespan of your appliances and save you money. However, if you don’t get the performance you want, you may spend more money by having to run two cycles instead of one.

Having low water pressure or low water volume may be the result of low street pressure being provided to your home, using a well without enough water, or having old pipes. Some ways to increase water pressure include installing booster pipes, fixing your well, or replacing your pipes.

For optimum efficiency and filtration, we advise that you replace your disposable filters at least once a month. If you have washable filters, they should be cleaned once a month.

The most important maintenance you can do is to change your filters regularly. Ground-mounted outdoor units should be kept away from debris, clutter, weeds, or landscaping that can grow too close and reduce the airflow to the unit. Also, keep pets away from the unit because pet urine can cause expensive damage. Use caution with a weed trimmer around the unit to prevent damaging control wiring. Any additional maintenance should only be performed by qualified personnel.
