Plumber Tips

Plumber Tips and Recommendations...

Water  Heaters 
We recommend that you maintain your water heater by flushing the tank at least once a year to help remove sediment build up at the bottom of the tank.   Without doing this can take away efficiency and cause premature failure.   We also highly recommend replacing the anode rod located inside the water heater every 18-24 months to help extend the life of the unit, especially with our hard water in Las Vegas.   Keep up with this maintenance and help prolong the life of your unit which in the long run can save you aggravation and money.

Have a slowly climbing or high water bill?
Go around your property and check for wet  irrigation leaks in the yard along with any faucet drips.   Also check toilets running as well as check your water softener and see if it may be stuck on regeneration.  Also feel for hot spots around the floor of your home and occasionally at night you may hear a hissing noise.   If you have any of the problems and can’t fix them yourself or cannot anything and your bill is getting higher simply give us a call and we will do a complete diagnostic to find the source of the problem.

Do you have more than one bathroom and hardly ever use the other ones?
We recommend at least once a month to go around to the extra bathrooms and run water in the shower faucets and tubs.  Also flush all toilets in order to help keep shower valve stems from sticking and p-traps from drying out as well as provide protection from sewer gases that can enter your home.

High water pressure dangers
One of the biggest plumbing issues is high water pressure.  Though having high pressure may feel good in the shower it can cause more damage than you think.   It’s like having high blood pressure where eventually something will blow out and can happen when you’re not home causing major water damage that can destroy non-replaceable items.   The signs of high water pressure usually are toilets making noises or a fixture that begins dripping or leak pipes making loud noises.   This can then make water heaters leak and fail sooner than normal.  If you are experiencing any of these issues you may have your water pressure higher than 80 psi.  Call us today and protect your investment!
