The Biggest Plumbing Myths

It may come as a surprise, but there are many myths out there when it comes to plumbing. We're here to bust these plumbing myths and to help our customers be savvier!

Noisy Water Heaters Need Replacing

Homeowners commonly worry that a noisy water heater means they'll soon need to replace the appliance. However, that's not always the case. When you hire expert technicians to investigate the noise, you may simply find that there is sediment buildup in the unit. Some heaters can be repaired easily at a low price point.

Hard Water Is No Big Deal

The cause of sediments in a water heater is actually hard water, which deposits loose minerals in the tank. Those same sediments can wind up in your shower and fixtures, your dishes, and in your hair! These deposits may occasionally damage appliances or your HVAC system. Installing a water softener can help prevent the buildup of hard water.

Everything's Fine As Long As The Drains Work

Just because nothing is obviously wrong with your plumbing doesn't mean that everything is all good. Unfortunately, it can take a while for you to notice that drains are working slower. At that point, a small problem can escalate. If you find yourself having to use little tricks such as jiggling the handle, it could be a sign of impending doom. In this case, reach out to the experts at Affordable Service to resolve any issues you may have.

It's Okay to Flush Because the Package Says So

Wipes and menstrual products may say that they're flushable, but these labels simply indicate that the item is small enough to fit in pipes. It doesn't mean that the items will break down quickly or move through your pipes as easily as toilet paper. This can lead to clogs and damage your system. Unfortunately, issues with clogging due to these typed of products is pretty common. It’s important to be aware of what you are flushing.

These are just a few plumbing myths that we encounter. Fortunately, many of these issues can be investigated. Reach out to Affordable Service to ensure that your problems don't become too much to handle. We are availabe24/7 for your plumbing needs!
