Posted by Agentis on Jan 16, 2019 8:05:48 PM

You dread filling the sink basin because you know when you release the stopper it’s going to take a long time to drain. And that just reminds you that you’ve got an untreated clog. 

It may start out slow so you barely notice it, but inside the accumulation of dirt, soap residue, and hair all can contribute to that slow drain. And it won’t get better on it’s own.

Leaky Faucet? Know your faucet you before you fix it

Posted by Agentis on Jul 16, 2018 5:07:34 PM

Faucet leaks are the nuisance of bathroom maintenance issues.

And the cost can be high. A leak that loses just one drop per second can waste up to 3,000 gallons of water a year.

Sometimes leaky faucets are a quick fix, but other leaks can prove more difficult and come back over time.

To get started diagnosing and fixing a leak, it’s important to know what type of faucet you have and how it’s designed.

Before you begin any maintenance, be sure to shut off the water to the sink. This will mitigate the risk of water flooding the sink while you are trying to handle your repairs.

The Stubborn Clog (And How to Fix It!)

Posted by Agentis on Dec 27, 2017 11:51:14 AM

We all have that one drain in our house that just refuses to clear. 

You’ve probably tried many different fixes, and none of them seem to work. Luckily, there are other ways you can try to clear this stubborn clog if you have the time and money. 

Before fixing the clog, you may want to add a few new tools in your arsenal – a sink plunger and – if you’re a more ambitious do-it-yourself-type – a plumber’s snake or cable auger. You can rent an electric power auger if the clog is far from the drain or very large.
