Living with plumbing is one of those great advantages we have now that our ancestors didn’t get to enjoy, but that doesn’t mean it’s always pleasant. When plumbing goes wrong, homeowners realize just how in-depth and complicated it is. Before you panic, perhaps the answer to your plumbing problem is one that’s more common than you realize. While it usually takes the help of a professional to get your plumbing in order, we can answer some of your most commonly asked plumbing questions right now while you’re looking for a plumber.

Where Did that Leak Come From?

Leaks happen all the time, which is why we are a 24 hour plumber. We assume the leak you’re referring to isn’t one directly from a faucet since you’re wondering where it originates. Water leaks are not always simple to fix. Many appear to come from a certain place behind a wall where the stains begin to appear, but this is not always the case. Leaks can come from virtually anywhere in your walls and travel quite the distance prior to showing up as a stain. The best way to find the source of the leak is to trace the water trail until you find it, which is not always a simple process.

Can I Put Whatever I Want in the Garbage Disposal?

It’s nice to have is disposal when you’re cooking, but you can’t put anything and everything into it. There is conflicting information everywhere. Some people say put a lemon rind in the disposal to clean and deodorize, while others advise against this for fear of damaging the blades on the rind. What you can and can’t put into the disposal is a never-ending debate, but there are a few things you cannot put into the disposal at any time. Bones, for instance, cannot go into the disposal. All disposals are made differently, and some can handle more than others.

Never put into a disposal something you wouldn’t eat. Run cold water into the disposal before and after use to keep the flow of items moving through your pipes, and always keep your hands out of it when you’re running it.

Why Does My Toilet Make Noise When I Flush?

Toilets aren’t designed to make a gurgling sound when they flush, but many do. When this happens, it’s because of the pressure. The vents in the plumbing designed to keep gas from entering your home through the plumbing might be obstructed, which is causing the sound you hear. This is a job for a professional.

Can I Fix A Clogged Drain?

Sometimes clogs in the pipes are nothing more than a little bit too much toilet paper flushed at once. If you have kids at home, you know this to be true. If you can fix a clogged drain with a snake or with a few flushes of some cleaner, you probably don’t have a problem. If the clog clears up and goes away but comes back regularly, you might have a real problem somewhere in the pipes. This is when it becomes necessary to call a professional for plumbing services. We all experience a small clog we can clear up without any issues, but a persistent clog you fight more than you don’t is a good indicator of a much larger plumbing problem.
