My water bill is higher than normal. What is going on?
It can be quite alarming when you receive a high water bill out of the blue, especially when you have no idea why. Many homeowners are surprised to learn that there are actually a number of small plumbing problems that can add up to significant water waste. For example, a leaking faucet can drip, drip, drip away a gallon of water a day. Furthermore, a running toilet can lead to a $100 increase in your bill over the course of a year.
If you want to get to the bottom of your costly bill, we recommend starting with checking any faucets or spigots that are located outside of your home. Because you don’t use these fixtures as frequently, you may not realize there is a problem until you get the water bill.
If you believe that a running toilet is contributing to the increase in your water bill, try taking a look inside the toilet bowl where the flapper is located. Over time, flappers can wear out which can lead to a running toilet. If your flapper is in poor condition, it will need to be replaced.
Another common problem area is your sprinklers. Take a walk around your yard and examine your sprinkler heads to see if any of them are broken or damaged. After a full cycle, look to see if there are any waterlogged areas. Pooled water usually means that you need to modify the watering time for that station. However, it could also mean that there is a leak somewhere in the system. If you have gone through these steps and can’t seem to find what might be going on, contact ABC. Our specialists will be able to quickly get to the bottom of your issue, and then get work on making any needed repairs. With ABC on the case, you’ll have more free time to run errands, take the family to Natural Bridge Caverns or otherwise spend your day.
Can ABC plumbers install new plumbing equipment for me?
While the majority of our calls involve making repairs, our specialists are fully equipped to install any new plumbing equipment you have purchased. We understand that you may have underestimated the time, energy and expertise that was necessary to install your new equipment, and that new plumbing fixture may be collecting dust in the box. Fortunately, our licensed plumbers can install your new showerhead, sink, faucet, toilet, garbage disposal, water heater or other appliance that uses water. When a licensed plumber installs your new plumbing, you can have peace of mind that everything will be working just as it should.
What are some things I can do if I have a slow or clogged drain?
When water won’t drain properly down your sink, tub or drain, you probably wonder whether you can address the issue on your own. If you’d like to attempt to clear the blockage yourself before contacting a plumber, you can:
Remove the plunger or stopper out of the drain in your tub or sink. Then, use a flashlight to inspect the drain for any blockages, such as a buildup of hair or a foreign object. If you find any obvious debris that is causing the clog, you can carefully remove it.
Slowly pour a small amount of enzyme-based drain opener down your pipes to see if this helps clear any blockages that are further down the drain. You can also try turning the faucet on hot and letting a slow stream of water go down down your drain to see if that helps at all.
If the drain is still slow or clogged, you can try using an auger to clear the blockage. Be careful with this specialized tool, as even handy homeowners can wind up causing more damage instead of resolving the problem.
Typically, by the time a homeowner is reaching for the auger, it’s easier to contact a licensed plumber to clear the blockage. When a professional takes care of a clogged drain, you’ll have peace of mind in knowing that the problem was addressed correctly and everything is working just as it should. Also, you’ll save yourself some precious time, so you can go hiking through Guadalupe River State Park, take the kids to Bulverde Community Park or simply relax at home instead of spending the day worrying about your plumbing.
What happens if something goes wrong when you are working on my plumbing?
On rare occasions, one of our plumbers will come across a problem that turns out to more involved than what was originally anticipated. In these cases, we will provide an updated estimate and timeline for all necessary repairs. Once we receive your approval, we will move forward.
If this expanded scope of work means that we will not be able to finish the work until the following day and you aren’t capable of going about your normal routine, we can arrange a stay for you and your family at a nearby hotel, at no additional cost to you. This is a part of our Comfort Guarantee, which also includes a one-year warranty on our plumbing work.
