Plumbing Problems: Clogged Toilets

Clogged toilets are some of the most common plumbing problems that homeowners face. Unfortunately, fixing this plumbing problem is a messy task that many homeowners want to avoid handling. At Jilly Plumbing, we have experts ready for this task at any time. Clogged toilets may be due to excess toilet paper, large waste pieces, feminine products, or other items that don’t break down in the water and get stuck in the system. The best fix to this problem is using a plunger or an auger snake if the clog refuses to budge. Our plumbers have the necessary tools, know-how, and experience to unclog your toilets any time.

Leaky Faucets

Leaking faucets can waste up to 3 gallons of water per hour, leading to hefty utility bills at the end of each month. To identify the source of the leak, inspect all parts inside your sink’s cabinet and replace any worn-out parts. It’s essential to ensure the part is compatible with your faucet and that you can install it correctly without needing professional assistance. If you need help locating the leak’s source or the skills to replace a faulty part, contact Jilly Plumbing for help as soon as possible.

Low Water Pressure

When water pressure in your home drops significantly, it’s time to fix any blockages in supply lines or showerheads stopping water from flowing freely. You can easily unscrew both and clean them within minutes if they have clogs of mineral deposits or other debris. Other causes of low water pressure include broken pipes, faulty pipe fittings, and deteriorated valves. If you need help identifying these issues, let the experts at Jilly Plumbing handle the job.

Clogged Drains

Kitchen drains and bathroom sinks usually get clogged due to the buildup of food particles, soap scum, grease, hair strands, and other debris. You can use over-the-counter drain cleaners to clear the clog or a plunger if it’s not too severe. Our plumbers have specialized tools for clearing stubborn blockages that home remedies cannot solve.

No Hot Water?

If you don’t have hot water, check the pilot light to ensure it is on before doing anything else. If the pilot light is on, but there’s still no hot water, inspect your water heater for any broken parts. It may be time to replace it with a new one if they are past its lifespan or has experienced severe damage due to wear and tear. Jilly Plumbing can help you determine the cause of the problem and replace your water heater if need be.

Running Toilets

A running toilet is an annoying problem that most homeowners try to ignore. However, this can lead to water waste and higher monthly utility bills. Various issues, such as a faulty flapper valve or a problem with the fill valve, can cause a running toilet. The best fix to this issue is replacing the defective parts inside your toilet tank. Our plumbers have the right tools and experience to help you diagnose and replace any broken pieces in your toilet quickly and effectively.

Garbage Disposal Problems

Garbage disposals can malfunction due to worn-out blades, motors, clogs, or jammed parts. To fix this issue, use a plunger to loosen the clog and run some hot water down the drain. If that doesn’t work, you may replace your garbage disposal with a new one. Jilly Plumbing has experienced plumbers who can help you install new garbage disposal efficiently.

Sewer Line Issues

Sewer line issues can lead to serious plumbing problems if left unchecked. Common signs of sewer line damage include a terrible smell from your drains, slow drainage, and standing water near your home’s foundation. Our plumbers have the necessary equipment and knowledge to diagnose and fix any damaged pipe or sewer line.

Gas Line Issues

If you suspect or notice a gas leak in your home, do not hesitate to call Jilly Plumbing immediately. Gas leaks are one of the most hazardous plumbing issues because they can cause significant health risks and property damage due to an accumulation of gas indoors. Our team has all the safety gear needed to detect gas leaks quickly and prevent further disasters from happening. We also have experience replacing old pipes with new ones and can help you with any gas line issues.

Sump Pump Issues

Sump pumps are vital for preventing water damage due to flooding and other natural disasters. If your sump pump is malfunctioning, you must fix it as soon as possible. Our plumbers can resolve any issues with the motor, check for clogs in the pipes, or replace any broken parts quickly and efficiently.

Regardless of the plumbing problem, Jilly Plumbing has a team of experienced plumbers ready to help you.
