That depends. If it’s cheap and generic, just replace it. If it’s newer and/or more expensive, then just repair it.
It depends on the severity of the leak. You can put a bucket underneath it for the night and you can tell.
Rags for sure as they aren’t degradable and get stuck. Q-tips are common for people to throw away. Lastly the cleaning agents that hang on the inside of the bowl can cause toilet issues as well.
People could be taking longer showers or your toilet is running all the time. Sometimes it makes a sound, sometimes it doesn’t. Older style toilets can be really quiet.
Yes, replace the fill valve or flapper. When you want it to stop, use the shut off valve until a plumber can get there.
Bones as they can be difficult to break up and ruin your disposal. You should also run your faucet for 30 seconds after you shut the disposal off as food doesn’t move as fast as the water.
Shut the water off, try using a plunger. If that doesn’t work call a plumber. If it’s still filling up, you can bucket the water out or suck it out with a shop vac.
- Check your faucets for dripping water and under your faucets for moisture. Fix leaky faucets promptly. Even a slow leak can waste as much as 15 or 20 gallons of water a day. And a leak can ruin your faucet or even your cabinets and floors.
- Leaky faucets are usually caused by seals which are dirty or worn and can be cleaned, replaced, or you may want to replace the faucet.
- Fix leaky toilets right away. A leaky toilet can waste over 30 gallons of water a day. Check your toilet for leaks by dropping a few drops of food coloring or a little bit of Kool-Aid in the tank. After about half an hour, it the water in the bowl has some color in it, the tank is leaking, and the stopper (flapper) and/or flush valve seat may need to be replaced.
- Clogged toilet and a plunger didn’t work? If the water level is low fill a bucket with warm water and pour it from waist high into the bowl. Repeat if necessary after water is low again.
- Check for undetected leaks in your home by making sure all water is turned off inside your home, then checking your water meter. If it is still running, you may have an undetected leak.
- When you know you are going to be gone for a few hours, write down the numbers on your water meter when you leave. If you check the meter when you return and the numbers have changed, there may be a leak somewhere inside your house.
Your water bills higher than they should be? Here’s how to check:
- Many people have a water heater that is larger than they need, but more frequently homeowners have one that is too small and allows them to run out of hot water at peak times. If this happens to you, you might want to consider a tankless water heater that heats the water as you need it. (See Tankless Water Heater Section below.)
- The chart below will help you determine the size regular water heater you need to accommodate your maximum demand for hot water at peak times. Remember that this type of consideration is unnecessary if you intend to install a tankless water heater which heats the water on demand. (See Tankless Water Heater Section.)
- Twice a year, open the drain valve at the bottom of your water heater and drain the sediment that has accumulated in the bottom of the water heater into a bucket. Keep it open until the water runs clear, usually 4-5 gallons.
- If your water heater displays an ASHRAE /EIS rating of 90, it is energy-efficient and you do not need additional insulation.
Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters are small, energy efficient, and deliver unlimited, cleaner hot water. Installing yours is a great way to “Go Green”.
- In short, here are the reasons you would want to install a tankless water heater.
- Unlimited hot water when you need it
- Save money on utility bills
- Smaller so takes up less room
- No pilot lights, no leaking, no draining
- More energy efficient, 8% – 34% depending on size
- Lasts 2-3 times longer so no need to spend $$ on replacements
- Selling point when selling your home. Adds value and may sway a buyer.
- A tankless water heater can save you money on your gas or electric bill since there is no need to keep your water hot 24/7. The water is heated on demand by running through a heat exchanger and being delivered hot to your faucets . . . for as long as you need it!
- When sized and installed properly, your tankless water heater will give you unlimited hot water so that you will have the ability to run the dishwasher, the washing machine, and take very long showers, all at the same time.
- The cost is two to four times more than conventional heaters. But the money savings from energy efficiency and not replacing a tank-type water heater over and over again will offset the price. Plus, you never have to worry about having hot water again.
- When making the decision to install a tankless water heater, make certain to choose the accurate size for your specific house. A good plumber can determine the size you should choose by asking a few simple questions about your lifestyle and the size of your home.
