How Do I Address a Slow Drain?
Slow drains usually mean that there is a clog partially blocking the flow of water. We recommend using a plunger to clear your drains. You may also pour boiling water down the drain to loosen the clog. Just make sure to call us after to eliminate the clog for good.
No matter what happens, refrain from pouring store-bought cleaners down your drain. These harsh chemicals are not only ineffective in getting rid of clogs, but they can also corrode and damage your pipes.
What Could be the Cause of the Sudden Increase in My Water Bill?
If there is an increase in your water bill but your water consumption remains the same, it is likely that you have a leak somewhere in your home. You may try observing your fixtures or any exposed pipes to see if there are any slow drips. If you can’t find any, you may also turn off your main water and see if the water meter is running. If it is, call Bryco Plumbing so we can accurately locate the leak and provide the necessary repairs.
Why Is My Water Heater Producing a Rumbling Noise?
A rumbling noise in the water heater usually indicates the presence of sediments in the tank. Our San Fernando Valley plumbers can flush the tank of your water heater to get rid of all the sediments and other debris.
What Is Considered a Plumbing Emergency?
