Plumbing Repair and Maintenace in Southern California

Plumbing is something property owners rarely think about until something goes wrong.  Unfortunately, when the plumbing in your home or business fails, the results are often very costly and bring with it water damage to the surrounding areas of where the problem occurs.  Think about this; if the toilet in your bathroom backs up and water comes pouring out when you are not home, that dirty water will seep through the bathroom floor and spread throughout your home or business.  This will result in you having to repair the plumbing problem AND address the water damage that may have occurred as a result.

Replacing a Faucet – Just do it the easy way

There’s a simple secret here: You need to use a basin wrench, available at most home centers. The head works on a cam principle, tightening around any size nut as you turn the handle. The head is mounted on the end of a long handle; it flips to allow you to turn clockwise or counterclockwise.

To remove the old faucet, close the shutoff valves under the sink. Next, use the basin wrench to remove the coupling nuts that secure the water-supply tubes to the faucet and to loosen the mounting nuts that secure the faucet to the sink or countertop. You’ll also need to disconnect the pop-up drain linkage from the sink drain by removing the retaining nut.

Before you position the new faucet, press some plumber’s putty all around the underside along the outer edge. After you make your connections, clean off the excess putty with a plastic putty knife or rag.

Stopping Toilets That Run

Fight the annoying, nonstop trickling sound.

Many toilets eventually develop one of several problems that allow water to run from the tank into the bowl. The result is an annoying, nonstop trickling sound that wastes gallons of water each day. Usually, adjusting the refill tube or lengthening the chain connected to the flush handle stops the flow. If neither does, the culprit is the large drain hole at the bottom of the tank that’s fitted with a metal or plastic ring, also known as the valve seat.

The cone-shaped flapper valve fits into the valve seat to stop the flow of water out of the tank. Over time, sediment and hard-water deposits can collect on the valve seat and prevent the flapper from forming a watertight seal. The solution: Raise the flapper and scrub the valve seat clean with a piece of emery cloth or fine-grade steel wool. If the valve seat is made out of plastic — not brass or some other metal — scrub it with a plastic scouring pad.
