Toilet Costing You Dough?

How old is your toilet? If your toilet was made earlier than 1994, it is in all probability costing you a lot of money in water. Most older toilets used 3.5 gallons per flush (gpf). Modern low-flow toilets take only 1.6 gallons each flush and the next generation low-flow models provide you with the equivalent volume of flushing power as old 3.5 gallon models. A plumbing contractor can put in an cost-efficient new toilet that will spare water and save you money month after month.

There are many innovative environmentally-advantageous toilet types that go even further to conserve water. A few types have a two flushing strategy which in turn works by using only 0.9 gallons to flush liquid waste but the whole 1.6 gallons to flush solid waste.

Running Toilets

If you discover water running in your toilet tank for extensive periods of time after a flush, then your toilet is leaking. It is dumping water down the overflow tube and using almost 200 gallons of water everyday. The trouble could be a corroded overflow pipe or flush valve assembly. Oftentimes the culprit is a worn-out flapper valve. Avoid jiggling the handle and call Drain Patrol. The chances are you’ll save yourself enough money on your next handful of water bills to pay for the fee of the plumbing repair.


Could there be a more hopeless experience than the second a toilet isn’t going to flush? Water rises in your bowl and starts spilling onto the floor as extreme stress takes hold. If a toilet requires plunging on a constant basis, there is very likely a obstruction in the trap or more deeply down the drainpipe. It may even be a symptom of a bigger condition further down the sewer line. We’re specialists at dealing with clogged toilets.

Showers and Tubs

Today’s bathrooms boast a myriad of shower and tub designs. Many are typical tub & shower combos, some others are ornate with a diversity of water jets, shower heads and faucet models. Drain Patrol licensed plumbing professionals are masters of all shower repairs, bathtub drain repairs, water pressure challenges and even installations/replacements. We are the specialists to call up for your bathroom plumbing advice.


The way to switch off the water supply if your faucet breaks or cracks? It happens. Faucets break, sometimes strongly, and water will begin shooting all over the walls and floor. Don’t worry! Start looking beneath the sink for the water shut-off valves. There will be a cold water shut-off valve coupled with a hot water shut-off valve. They’re typically chrome with a little oval valve handle. Turn the handles clockwise until eventually the water quits pouring from of the faucet. Occasionally water shut-off valves get stuck from lack of use. If it will not budge, get a pair of pliers and little by little turn the knob forward and backward until eventually the rubber seat inside loosens. Do not force it all at once or it could quite possibly break and produce bigger plumbing situations. If the valve spins readily and will not turn the internal seat, tighten up the set screw on the face and make an attempt again. As soon as the valve is moving, turn off the water and ring Drain Patrol.
