Clogged Drain Repair
Clogged drains affect many Rockville Centre homeowners, and while most issues are solved with a plunger or chemical drain cleaner, sometimes the obstruction sits deep in the system and is a challenge to remove. When you have a stubborn clog that returns no matter what you do, call us and let us repair it. Our methods get to the heart of the problem and leave your drains in a like-new condition. Also, our techniques are safe for all plumbing, unlike many drain cleaners, which can damage older pipes. To prevent clogs, try these precautions:
- Use metal mesh filters to stop debris from going down the drain.
- Don’t pour grease or cooking fat down the drain.
- Put coffee grounds in the trash instead of down the sink.
- Don’t flush non-flushable items like personal wipes, feminine products, paper towels, or dental floss down the toilet.
Whether it’s a slow drain or one that’s fully backed up, call Charles Krull & Son, Inc. Plumbing & Heating for expert drain cleaning services.
Keep Your Water Heater in Tip Top Shape
The average water heater lasts about 15 years, and to keep it running efficiently, and extend its life for as long as possible, you must maintain it. First, experts recommend flushing the tank at least once a year to remove sediment buildup that damages the system. Also, turning down the thermostat a few degrees means the system doesn’t have to work as hard to heat the water. Lastly, if you have an older water heater, adding insulation reduces stress and helps it maintain efficiency.
However, all water heaters fail eventually, and if you get to know the signs that the unit is breaking down, you can replace it before you’re out of hot water. Watch out for:
- Strange noises like banging or gurgling
- Discolored or rusty water
- Water that doesn’t get as hot as it used to
- Water leaks
If your water heater is giving you fits, contact us for a repair or replacement.
