Why Is There Water Running in My Toilet Tank?
If the fill valve in your toilet starts to leak, you may hear constant water running in your toilet tank. Usually, this can be fixed by lowering the valve’s level. Or, if your fill valve is older, it may benefit you to replace this valve to eliminate the problem.
How Can You Improve Water Pressure?
One of the common plumbing questions you might have is how you can improve the water pressure in your home. Usually, water pressure issues can be traced back to a general water volume or flow problem. However, if you have a water pressure problem but it is limited to one faucet in your home, you can likely fix it by installing a new aerator at the end of the faucet spout.
How Can You Get Rid of Foul Odors Coming From a Garbage Disposal?
If foul odors are coming from your kitchen sink’s garbage disposal, simply put a few citrus peels and ice cubes down into your sink, add a little dish detergent, and let your disposal run for 30 seconds. Then, rinse the debris away with cold water.
Why Is My Water Heater Not Working as Well as Before?
Sediment and lime deposits building up within your water heater can cause a barrier between the burner and the water in your tank. This buildup needs to be removed periodically to ensure maximum efficiency.
