Toilet Costing You Dough?

How old is your toilet? If your current toilet was manufactured prior to 1994, it is quite likely costing you a fortune in water. Most older toilets used 3.5 gallons for each flush (gpf). Current low-flow toilets take only 1.6 gallons every flush and the current low-flow designs produce the comparable amount of flushing strength as old 3.5 gallon models. A Preferred Plumbing & Drain plumber can set up an cost-effective new toilet that will cut back on water and save you dollars month after month.

At this time there are several innovative eco-advantageous toilet designs that go even further to help save water. Quite a few designs have a dual flushing technique which in turn utilizes just 0.9 gallons to flush the liquid waste but all 1.6 gallons to flush solid waste.

Running Toilets

If you discover water running in your trusty toilet tank for extensive durations after a flush, then your toilet is leaking. It is dumping water in the overflow tube and squandering almost 200 gallons of water everyday. The problem may very well be a corroded overflow pipe or flush valve assembly. Quite often the reason is a shot flapper valve. Quit jiggling the handle and call Preferred Plumbing & Drain. Odds are you’ll help save enough dough on your next handful of water payments to pay for the amount of the plumbing repair.


Is there a more helpless experience than the moment a toilet won’t flush? Water rises in your bowl and starts spilling over to the ground as worry sets in. If a toilet has to have plunging on a frequent basis, there is likely a blockage in the trap or further down the drainpipe. It may possibly even be a warning sign of a larger situation even farther down the sewer line. We’re specialists at working with clogged toilets.

Preferred Plumbing & Drain licensed plumbing specialists are masters of all shower repairs, bathtub drain repairs, water pressure issues and also installations/replacements. We are the industry professionals to telephone for your bathroom plumbing help.


How to turn off the water supply if your faucet breaks? It occurs. Faucets break, in some cases violently, and water starts shooting through out the wall and floor. Don’t stress! Start looking below the sink for the water shut-off valves. So there will be a cold water shut-off valve coupled with a hot water shut-off valve. They’re commonly chrome with a little oval valve handle. Immediately turn the handles clockwise until eventually the water ceases pouring out of the faucet. Now and again water shut-off valves freeze up from not having enough use. If it won’t budge, pick up a pair of pliers and slowly but surely turn the knob forward and backward until finally the rubber seat inside loosens. Please don’t force it all at one time or it could break and result in more substantial plumbing concerns. If the valve turns freely and does not turn the internal seat, tighten up the set screw on the face and make an attempt once more. The moment the valve is moving, turn off the water and telephone Preferred Plumbing & Drain.
