If you’ve ever had a question about your Englewood plumbing — you’re not alone! Our team strives to provide the very best services as well as education about what might be happening in your home. Explore our plumbing FAQs for answers to some common plumbing questions.

Why Is My Garbage Disposal Not Working?

Your garbage disposal might not be working due to a variety of reasons, including jams, overloading, electrical issues or mechanical failures. It’s essential to check for any obvious obstructions, ensure it’s properly powered and reset the unit if necessary. For a comprehensive diagnosis and expert repair, consider reaching out to Garvin’s. Our experienced technicians can quickly identify and solve any garbage disposal problem.

How Does Hydrojet Drain Cleaning Work?

Hydrojet drain cleaning utilizes high-pressure water streams to clear blockages and buildup in pipes. This method effectively cuts through grease, sediment and debris, restoring flow without damaging the plumbing. By inserting a specialized nozzle into the drain, water is blasted at pressures up to 35,000 psi, scouring the pipe walls clean.

For a thorough, eco-friendly solution to your drainage issues, consider learning more about our services at Garvin’s, where expertise meets efficiency in drain maintenance.

How Do You Fix A Clogged Shower Drain?

To fix a clogged shower drain, start by removing visible debris from the drain opening. Next, try pouring boiling water down the drain to dissolve any soap or grease buildup. If that doesn’t work, use a plunger or a plumber’s snake to dislodge the blockage. For stubborn clogs, a mixture of baking soda and vinegar can be effective.

Remember, regular maintenance can prevent clogs. For more detailed solutions and professional assistance, consider reaching out to Garvin’s for expert drain cleaning services.

What Are The Signs Of A Gas Leak?

Signs of a gas leak include a distinctive sulfur-like odor, hissing or whistling sounds near gas lines, visible air bubbles in water, dead or dying vegetation in areas over gas pipelines and dust or dirt blowing from a hole in the ground. It’s crucial to act immediately if you suspect a gas leak by evacuating the area and contacting professionals. Learn more about detecting and responding to gas leaks with Garvin’s expert guidance.

When Should You Get A Water Heater Replacement?

You should consider getting a water heater replacement if your unit is over 10 years old, shows signs of rust or leakage, delivers inconsistent temperatures or if you’re facing high energy bills. Upgrading can improve efficiency, reduce costs and provide reliable hot water. Interested in exploring your options? Connect with Garvin’s for expert advice and top-notch water heater replacement services.
