Household Plumbing Repairs

If you’re a homeowner, household plumbing repairs and maintenance issues often don’t happen at the most financially convenient times. You may be on a budget, so plumbing and other problems may get moved down to the bottom of the priority list.

Until there’s an emergency, many people don’t think too much about their plumbing system and what may be going on with it. Some plumbing problems might seem minor, but they could actually be urgent problems waiting to happen. Waiting until a slow leak turns into a more involved, and costly, repair (such as extensive water damage that may not be visible at a glance) can prove detrimental to you later. Call Viking Plumbing to get the fast and effective repairs you need!

With so many potential lurking threats to your plumbing system, as well as with every other mechanical area of your home, the task of staying on top of your plumbing might seem daunting. How do you know what to look for?

Garbage Disposals

Commonly, indications that your garbage disposal may be compromised and in need of attention include:

  • While the motor does continue to run, it doesn’t seem to grind down food within it.
  • The garbage disposal is noticeably louder than it was before.
  • The motor shuts off before you turn it off.
  • Dripping or wet ground below the disposal/sink.
  • Rust damage may or may not start to show around your disposal.

Here are some preventative measures we at Viking Plumbing recommend to keep your water and drain systems working efficiently and properly:

  • Do not dispose of especially sticky, gummy, starchy, or stringy foods like potato peels or pasta. Use the trash instead.
  • You can freshen your garbage disposal with the common practice of running the disposal while adding ice cubes and lemon peel to remove any residual smell or buildup.
  • Inspecting your disposal frequently looking for rust or water under it
  • Never let anything fall down into the garbage disposal that isn’t supposed to be in it. If something does get in your disposal, turn off the disposal and remove the item, using safety precautions. Never stick your hand in a garbage disposal.

Washer Hookups

Washer hookups have a hard job. They are subjected to constant pressure and sometimes fail. The drain line for a washer is constantly draining lint, paper, and other small bits that are able to slip into the household plumbing system. This can allow debris to come into contact with grease and oils in your drain line. At times this can create a clog in your household plumbing system. Repairs can be as simple as running a rooter in your drain line, to having your drain line Hydro Jetted.
