Does Your Plumbing Need Repair? Advice from Our Experts
Issue #1 – My Hot Water is Rusty
Many people today have concerns about the safety of the water they’re drinking. Rust in water is a very common issue, sometimes occurring when pipes become galvanized and rust. If you’re facing this problem, you may need to replace your water pipes, but it’s also possible the rust is coming from your water heater. Our plumbers can check to determine where the rust is coming to determine the correct course of action.
Issue # 2 – When My Sink or Tub Drains I Hear Gurgling Sounds
While your sink or tub is draining, you hear gurgling noise coming from your pipes. Rest assured, it’s not gremlins. What you’re hearing is air trapped in the pipes, which means you need a vent in the pipe. Do you notice the gurgling after using your kitchen sink? If you have a garbage disposal it could be clogged with some sediment and air is trapped behind the clog. Our plumbers can determine the source of the problem and where a vent is needed.
Issue # 3 – My Water Smells Like Rotten Eggs
A common concern for people on well water (but may also occur on public water), the odor is a result of a bacteria known as divibrio sulfurcans. When there’s a break in the water pipe, the bacteria can invade your water supply and change sulfate into hydrogen sulfide, resulting in the stench or unpleasant taste. Chlorinating your water would resolve the problem. Before chlorinating your entire water supply, start by simply pouring a cup of bleach down the drain to kill the bacteria in your drains, as this may be the only source of the odor.
