4 Plumbing Problems That May Not Look Like Emergencies, But Are

Monday, March 1st, 2021

woman-with-plumberWhat counts as a “plumbing emergency” in your home? The easy answer to this is “Whatever feels like an emergency to you, the homeowner.” It’s a good adage, because even if you’re wrong about whether the plumbing problem you’re facing is an emergency or not, you’ll be glad you had the trouble investigated. Better to be cautious and avoid a big disaster.

There’s more to defining emergency plumbing needs, however. Sometimes, plumbing emergencies hide behind what look like lesser issues. Things that just don’t feel like big deals. Troubles you can get to later. These are the truly tricky and dangerous emergency plumbing jobs, because you’re much less likely to treat them as such and call us for emergency plumbing in Glendale, AZ to get the issue fixed before it becomes a major problem.

Water Stain on the Ceiling—It Could Be Serious

Monday, February 1st, 2021

Plumbing-LeakIf you notice a water stain on your ceiling, your first instinct may be simply one of annoyance. It’s ugly and seems to come out of nowhere. How are you going to cover that up? Maybe it will just go away when it dries.

We want to tell you how serious ceiling water stains can be. You should never ignore them. And you shouldn’t focus on what to do to cover it up, because the source of the stain may continue to be a problem, and the water damage might be enough to weaken the flooring—and that’s not something that a bit of plaster can fix. You don’t want to wipe the stain from your mind only to have part of the ceiling cave-in months later, possibly bringing down part of the room above it!

What Is Water Hammer and Is It a Problem?

Monday, December 7th, 2020

woman-listeningThe name water hammer sounds dramatic, doesn’t it? If you’ve ever experienced it, you’ll know there’s a reason for the drama. At the least, water hammer is an effectively descriptive name, because it sounds like a hammer striking against the pipes of your house. 

Unless you have actual gremlins living in your walls who are smashing at your plumbing with miniature hammers, water hammer isn’t literal. The noise you hear is something that’s occurring inside the pipes. But it’s still not something you want to happen, and not just because it will make you jump around your own house at the abrupt noise. Water hammer can be damaging to the plumbing and to water-using appliances in the house.

How Long You Can Expect Your Garbage Disposal to Last

Monday, September 14th, 2020

Pouring-water-kitchen-sinkPeople often think of the garbage disposal in their kitchen sink as an appliance that will never need to be replaced.

This isn’t true, of course. No mechanical appliance can last forever, and a garbage disposal handles an immense workload, operating almost every day. Although a broken disposal can be fixed, at a certain point it will no longer be worth repairing and it’s best to have a new unit installed.

The question is, how long can you expect your garbage disposal to last?
