Answers to Your Common Plumbing Questions

What are the most common plumbing problems I should expect?

If you’re a home or business owner, some of the most common plumbing problems you might encounter are:

  • Leaking faucets, pipes and joints
  • Clogged toilets, sinks and shower drains
  • Broken pipes, disposals or toilets
  • Low water pressure
  • Replacing pipes and other parts
  • Installing hot water heaters
  • Installing new plumbing/plumbing renovation

What plumbing problems can I fix by myself and when do I need to call in the experts?

Tightening leaky joints, unclogging drains and toilets, finding leaks and replacing parts are just a few examples of some of the simpler issues you might encounter that you can DIY. Of course, professionals can help with all of these as well.

Professionals are a must for big projects like replacing a toilet, broken pipes, plumbing renovations and hot water heater installation. The bottom line? If you’re not fully confident in your ability to complete a project, get a professional on the line.

How long does the average plumbing job take?

Professionals like our team at MJS Plumbing and Heating have years of experience, making it easier for us to complete simple jobs. For more intensive or laborious jobs, you should set aside anywhere from a couple of hours to several days to make sure the job is done properly. When we respond to emergencies, our 24-hour service plumbingteam strives to get the job done as quickly as possible to ensure that you can get back to normal life.

My water bill is too high. How can I save some money?

That culprit causing your high water bill can be something simple like a continuously running toilet, a dripping faucet or even overwatering the lawn. A more serious cause might be a hidden broken water pipe. A professional plumber will be able to help you identify issues and hopefully lower your bill.

Do I need to get my home or business inspected?

Yes! Staying on top of your home’s plumbing system will be better for you — and your building or home — in the long run. An annual plumbing inspection will keep your plumbing system in top shape and alert you to any problems before they become an expensive fix.

How can I help my emergency plumber before and during the job?

There are several ways to help your 24-hour plumbing emergency service team. Shut off any water or heating sources as the problem demands. If you can, find and isolate leaks and capture the drips if possible. Make sure the area where your plumber will be working is safe and free from clutter.
