There is a lot of doing it yourself methods for unclogging a toilet or drain. From the baking soda and vinegar technique to plungers, coat hangers, and purchasing a toilet snake, all of these methods can work but are not guaranteed. Your best bet is to call Xtreme Plumbing & Repipe Specialist. Not only will we unclog your toilet or sink, but we’ll also ensure the same thing doesn’t happen any time again soon.
Poor water pressure can be caused by hard-water buildup in pipes, hot water tank issues such as sediment buildup, or a problem with the water line such as it being pinched. Regular maintenance should stop these things from happening, but if they have happened, you’ll need to call in a professional licensed plumber.
There’s a simple fix for this. The water level in your toilet’s tank is controlled by a floating cap. By going inside your tank, you can adjust the cap. If it keeps happening, you may need a replacement. Get in touch with Xtreme Plumbing & Repipe Specialist and we can do the job quickly and affordably.
If you find that your toilet is clogging easily all the time, chances are there’s a large obstruction in there that is being added to every time you flush. Something that contributes to this is the use of too much toilet paper, or the flushing of absorbent materials such as tampons. You could also be experiencing water flow issues or venting issues. Give Xtreme Plumbing & Repipe Specialist a call and we’ll assess the situation for you and figure out the best, most affordable repair!
Grab the plunger! Stop the bowl from filling by controlling the flapper in your toilet’s tank, and get plunging. If this doesn’t help, there may be a bigger problem in which case you’ll have to call in the pros.
Look for the main valve to your house. It will be outside by your water meter. Then, just turn it clockwise until it stops. There will be residual water in the pipes if you run a tap but it will clear out with use.
