[su_spoiler title=”What is the difference between a water softener and a water conditioner?” open=”no” style=”fancy” icon=”chevron ” anchor=”” class=””]It’s a complicated answer, but a water conditioner can be anything that treats your water, from a basic point-of-use filter to a water softener to a system that electronically treats the water so it does less damage to your plumbing system. Which system is best for you is a matter of what your goals are and what you want to spend. Our technicians will be more than happy to discuss your needs and give you some options for the best system for you.[/su_spoiler]
[su_spoiler title=”I have a bad smell coming from my garbarge disposal. What can I do?” open=”no” style=”fancy” icon=”chevron ” anchor=”” class=””]There are several easy treatments that might eliminate your problem. One method is to pour a box of baking soda down the disposal while it is on and while the water is running. Another option is to use a cup of automatic dishwasher detergent (such as Cascade) in place of the baking soda. If neither of those helps, we will be happy to send a technician out to give you a free, no-obligation estimate.[/su_spoiler]
[su_spoiler title=” Why does my toilet keep running after I flush it?” open=”no” style=”fancy” icon=”chevron ” anchor=”” class=””]It can be one of a number of problems. The most likely cause is a leaking water control diaphragm. But it can also be a faulty fill valve, a bad tank-to-bowl gasket, or loose or leaking seals on the tank mounting bolts. We will be happy to send out a technician for a free, no-obligation estimate.[/su_spoiler]
[su_spoiler title=” What would cause a sewer gas odor to be coming from my guest bathroom shower?” open=”no” style=”fancy” icon=”chevron ” anchor=”” class=””]The most likely reason would be that the trap is dry. This is a common problem in guest baths due to infrequent use. The water in the trap can slowly evaporate without regular use of the shower, thereby permitting sewer gas to rise into the house. The simple solution in that situation is to run your shower every few weeks to keep some water in the trap.[/su_spoiler]
