Plumbing Fixtures Leaking? If It Can’t Be Fixed, We Can Replace It.
Running and Leaking ToiletsRunning and leaking toilets are a major annoyance and they are an expensive waste of water. Leaky toilets can cost you upwards of $100 a year on your water bills. If you hear a low humming noise, or if the toilet continues to run into the bowl after the toilet is flushed, it indicates that some part of the mechanism is not operating correctly. You may need to replace the entire mechanism.
DIY: Check Your Toilet for Leaks
1. Remove the toilet tank lid.
2. Add 10 drops of food coloring into the tank.
3. Put the lid back on. Do not flush.
4. Wait at least 10-15 minutes, and then look in the bowl. If you see colored water, you have a leak. If not, you don't.
Dripping FaucetsThe big question is, “why do faucets drip in the first place?” Inside the faucet are washers that stop the flow of water when the faucet is turned off. Washers wear out with use. You can extend the life of your faucet washers by not turning them off with too much force.
Here’s a great idea to say goodbye to dripping faucets. Consider replacing your older faucets with those that feature washer-less valve cartridges. Since the valve mechanism is contained in one cartridge, these faucets are easier to repair and replace. Cartridges are generally more durable and won’t leak because they don’t deteriorate with friction or age as rubber washers do.
