    How to Correctly Use a Plunger

    Last updated 7 months ago

    When used properly, a plunger can be a valuable tool. It can be used on clogged sinks, tubs, and toilets. Firstly, it is important to note that different plungers are appropriate for different jobs. A flange plunger should be used on a toilet, while a cup plunger is effective on tubs and sinks. You should also keep your plunger in good working order so that it can continue to create a seal. A tight seal is crucial; you can add petroleum jelly to the rim of the plunger for extra suction. Make sure that you are holding the plunger perpendicular to base of the sink, tub, or toilet you are attempting to unclog, and repeatedly thrust the plunger down for about 15 seconds.

    Essential Tips for Hiring a Plumber

    Last updated 7 months ago

    When you hire a plumber, you trust another person with important components of your home. This is why it is crucial to hire a reputable and experienced professional. If you hire a cheap plumber who is unlicensed, uninsured, and inexperienced, you may end up paying more in the long run. Here are a few essential tips for hiring a plumber.

    Licensure and Insurance

    California requires plumbers to be licensed, so be sure that your plumber has a license before hiring him or her. You should also look into whether anyone has filed a formal complaint against the plumber in the past. Additionally, make sure that your potential plumber is insured. Insurance helps to protect both parties in case any unfavorable circumstances should arise, like accidents and injuries. Hiring an unlicensed and uninsured plumber is risky and could cost you thousands of dollars if something goes wrong.

    Experience and Price

    When you are choosing a new plumber, find out about his or her experience. Plumbers who have been in business for a substantial amount of time will have built up a wealth of knowledge about the job and will be able to help you easily and efficiently. Price is always important, both to the customer and the professional. However, if your potential plumber gives you an estimate that is significantly lower than others, this may mean he or she may not be planning on doing a complete job.

    Warranty and References

    It is always wise to hire a plumber with a warranty. Reputable plumbers will stand by the quality of their work. It is not uncommon for a plumber to guarantee the quality of his or her work, so if you find one that refuses, you should look elsewhere. You can also talk to the plumber’s references to investigate the quality of his or her work.

    Dripping faucets, faulty toilet tank flappers, and unattended garden hoses may all contribute to household leaks. If you notice a musty smell or stains in your walls, these signs indicate that you are experiencing a hidden plumbing leak. Buckling wallpaper or wooden floors are further evidence of a plumbing leak. You can test to see if your toilet is leaking by laying toilet paper around the base of the toilet and flushing.
