Blocked drains can cause big issues.
In your bathroom or kitchen a blocked drain slows your water, leaves residue
behind and can lead to bigger plumbing issues. How can you tell if you have a
clogged drain? If water begins to back up out of one of your sink drains, you’re
finding pools of water around the drains of a shower or water drains very
slowly after creating a pool, those are signs of a blocked drain. Does your
toilet water bubble when you run the sink? Do your drains make gurgling noises,
particularly after you’ve run your washing machine or dishwasher? You could
have a blocked drain. Also watch out for pools of water by your tub or sink or
the smell of rotten food coming from the area near your kitchen sink.
Struggling with water pressure that’s
too high or too low? In our experience one piece of plumbing equipment that is
too often overlooked is a good Pressure Regulator Valve. This device is
installed into your water lines to automatically regulate your water pressure.
If you’re experiencing water pressure that’s too high or too low you may need
to have your water pressure tested to see if you need a new Pressure Regulator
Valve installed on your water lines to keep that pressure right where you want
it to be.
Water pressure management works by
keeping your system’s pressure at a constant, controlled level and reducing the
higher pressure that comes through your water mains. This works through the use
of a diaphragm that controls how much water comes through the valve, each of
which has preset pressure points that open or close to increase or decrease
