Frequently Asked Questions

Why does my toilet keep running?

There are a few common causes: A tangled chain between the flush rod and the flapper, a worn flapper, a bad fill valve, or an overflow pipe that’s at the wrong height.

Worn internal parts, like washers, gaskets and O-rings — or corrosion in the valve seat. Usually, the entire faucet doesn’t need to be replaced, just the affected part.

Yes. Modern water heaters have an inlet air screen that can become clogged, which can prevent them from functioning properly. It’s also a good practice to have the burners cleaned and the unit’s pressure safety device checked periodically.

8 to 12 years depending on a few variables, like location, design of the unit, water quality, installation quality and maintenance.

Conventional water heaters use a heat source, often a gas burner, and a thermostat to keep a tank of water at the desired temperature. If your water heater isn’t heating, the thermostat and/or the heat source is usually the culprit. Make sure the thermostat on the side of your water heater hasn’t gotten accidentally turned down before calling for help.
