Residential Plumbing FAQ’s
How Do I Fix a Clogged Garbage Disposal?
Here are some steps you can try to fix a clogged garbage disposal:
First, turn off the power to the garbage disposal. This is usually done by flipping a switch under the sink or by unplugging it.
Check the manual for your specific model to see if there is a reset button. If there is, try resetting the garbage disposal.
Check to see if the clog is caused by an object that is stuck in the grinding chamber. You can use a flashlight to look inside and see if you can see the object. If you can, use a pair of tongs or pliers to carefully remove the object.
If the clog is not caused by an object, try using a plunger to try and clear the clog. Place the plunger over the drain and push down firmly.
If the plunger doesn’t work, you can try using a garbage disposal cleaner or a mixture of baking soda and vinegar to try and break up the clog. Pour the cleaner or mixture down the drain and let it sit for a few minutes before running hot water down the drain.
If none of these steps work, you may need to disassemble the garbage disposal and manually remove the clog. Be sure to consult the manual for instructions on how to do this safely.
It’s important to be cautious when trying to unclog a garbage disposal, as it contains sharp blades that can be dangerous if handled improperly. If you are not comfortable attempting to fix the issue yourself, it is best to call a plumber for assistance.
Why Do We Have Rusty Water Backup in Kitchen Sink?
There are several possible reasons why you may be experiencing rusty water coming from your kitchen sink:
Corroded pipes: If the pipes that supply water to your kitchen sink are old or damaged, they may be rusting on the inside. This can cause the water coming from your sink to appear rusty.
Water heater corrosion: If the water heater in your home is old or has not been properly maintained, the inside of the tank may be corroding. This can cause rust to be present in the water coming from your kitchen sink.
Rust in the municipal water supply: If the water coming from your kitchen sink is consistently rusty, it’s possible that there is rust present in the municipal water supply. This could be due to old or corroded pipes in the water treatment plant or in the distribution system.
Iron bacteria: Iron bacteria are microorganisms that can form in water pipes and cause the water to appear rusty.
To determine the cause of the rusty water, it’s a good idea to test the water and have it analyzed by a professional. In the meantime, you can try running the water for a few minutes to see if the rust clears up. If the problem persists, it’s best to consult a plumber or a water treatment professional for further assistance.
Why Is My Dishwasher Not Draining?
Why Is My Toilet Always Running?
There are several possible reasons why your toilet may be constantly running:
- A faulty toilet flapper: The toilet flapper is a rubber valve that opens to allow water to flow from the tank into the bowl, and then closes to stop the flow of water. If the flapper is not sealing properly, it may not close completely, causing the toilet to constantly run.
- A damaged or worn-out fill valve: The fill valve is responsible for refilling the toilet tank with water after it has been emptied. If the fill valve is damaged or worn out, it may not shut off properly, causing the toilet to constantly run.
- A faulty float: The float is a buoyant device that rises and falls with the water level in the toilet tank. It is connected to the fill valve and is responsible for regulating the amount of water that is allowed into the tank. If the float is not functioning properly, it may cause the toilet to constantly run.
- A blocked or restricted flush valve: The flush valve is the opening at the bottom of the toilet tank that allows water to flow into the bowl when the toilet is flushed. If the flush valve is blocked or restricted, it may cause the toilet to constantly run.
To troubleshoot a toilet that is constantly running, you can try the following steps:
- Check the toilet flapper and ensure it is seated properly and not damaged.
- Inspect the fill valve and ensure it is functioning properly.
- Check the float and ensure it is not stuck or damaged.
- Inspect the flush valve and ensure it is not blocked or restricted.
If you are unable to identify the cause of the problem, it may be necessary to call a plumber for further assistance.
What Do I Do If My Toilet Leaks at the Base?
If your toilet is leaking at the base, it is important to address the issue as soon as possible, as it can cause water damage and lead to more serious problems. Here are some steps you can try to fix a toilet that is leaking at the base:
Check the seal around the base of the toilet. If the seal is loose or damaged, it may be causing the leak. Tighten or replace the seal as needed.
Check the bolts that hold the toilet to the floor. If the bolts are loose, tighten them to see if that stops the leak.
Check the water supply line for any leaks or damage. If the water supply line is leaking, it may be causing the toilet to leak.
Check the toilet flapper. If the flapper is not sealing properly, it may be allowing water to escape from the tank and cause a leak at the base of the toilet.
If none of these steps resolve the issue, it may be necessary to call a plumber for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose the problem and recommend the appropriate repair.
It’s important to address a leaking toilet as soon as possible, as it can cause water damage and lead to more serious problems. Fixing a leak early on can help prevent costly repairs in the future.
Why Is Sewage Coming out of the Toilet?
Sewage coming out of the toilet is a serious problem that should be addressed immediately. There are several possible reasons why this may be happening:
A clogged sewer line: If the sewer line that carries waste away from your home is clogged, it may cause sewage to back up and overflow out of the toilet.
A damaged sewer line: If the sewer line that serves your home is damaged, it may cause sewage to leak out and overflow the toilet.
A problem with the plumbing in your home: If there is a problem with the plumbing in your home, such as a clogged drain or a faulty toilet, it may cause sewage to back up and overflow out of the toilet.
To resolve the issue, it is important to identify the cause of the problem and take appropriate action. If the problem is a clogged sewer line, you may be able to clear the blockage using a plumbing snake or other tool. If the sewer line is damaged or there is a problem with the plumbing in your home, it may be necessary to call a plumber for further assistance.
It is important to address sewage coming out of the toilet as soon as possible, as it can cause serious health and sanitation issues. If you are unable to resolve the issue on your own, it is best to call a plumber.

Our water heater began spewing water this morning. John was the first plumber in the area to answer my call, and was able to get to my house within 10 minutes of the call. He fixed the problem promptly and for what seemed to be a reasonable price. He was friendly and informative. I will definitely call John again and will recommend him to neighbors. Thanks, John!
John has done numerous plumbing projects around my house and has always done excellent work. He's quick to respond to my inquiry's and even replaced my water heater on a Sunday. Most recently, I had him install a water purification system and new faucet. His prices are reasonable and he will continue to be my go-to plumber.
