Here are our Top 6 Most Often Asked Plumbing Questions

  1. Why does our toilet keep running?
  2. What is safe to put in our garbage disposal?
  3. Are chemical drain cleaners safe to use?
  4. Why do we run out of hot water so quickly?
  5. Why do our drains get clogged?
1) Why does our toilet keep running?

This plumbing question is asked most often. In most cases, a constantly running toilet is caused by the flapper not closing properly on the flush valve. When the flapper doesn't create a proper seal water leaks into the toilet. The tank needs to fill with water to push the float up and turn off the supply of water.

A usual fix is to jiggle the handle. That little action will nudge the flapper in place. If this doesn’t work, then the flapper is probably worn out and not making a proper seal. Replacing the flapper is an easy do-it-yourself solution.

Call Mo-Jo Plumbing at 786-346-5020 for any toilet problems. We always advise homeowners when a problem is easy for them to fix themselves.

2) What is safe to put in our garbage disposal?

There is a misconception that garbage disposals are macerators that can break up everything. Well, they can only break up soft debris like cooked carrots, eggs, mashed potatoes, etc. Any hard products like eggshells, bones, or coffee grounds will wear the blades and jam the disposal. When using the garbage disposal, be sure to run water which will break down the foods and flush them down the drain.

3) Are chemical drain cleaners safe to use?

Chemical drain cleaners are damaging for your pipes, causing them to deteriorate from the inside out. When this happens, your drain lines will need to be replaced. Drain cleaners contain very toxic chemicals. There are usually three warning labels on the back of these products. Additionally, these products pose a danger to kids or pets if they are lying around your house. Drain clogs are usually a result of grease and sludge build up inside of your pipes, which can be controlled using enzymes and friendly bacteria products.

If friendly bacteria products do not resolve a drain problem and your drain clog has reached a critical mass, Mo-Jo Plumbing can resolve the problem fast. For more details visit our solutions page about Drain Cleaning Repair. Or just call us at 786-346-5020 for fast solutions 24/7/365.

4) Why do we run out of hot water so quickly?

There are several reasons you may be running out so quickly. It depends on the age and type of water heater. Electric water heaters commonly have a top heating element and a lower heating element. If you are running out of hot water quickly, the chances are the lower element is not working with only the water heated is in the top portion of the tank. When the top element stops working, neither will heat, and you will have no hot water.

Electric water heaters also have a reset button that can trip. A tripped reset button is an indication of a more severe problem. Call Mo-Jo Plumbing at 786-346-5040 for a water heater inspection, repair or replacement.

The most common problem for lack of hot water from gas water tanks is the condition of the dip tube. The dip tube is a piece of pipe that directs cold water to the bottom of the tank where it gets heated. The dip tube can get shorter over time, causing the cold water to mix with the hot causing barely warm water.

If you have any questions or problems with your water heater, the experts at Mo-Jo Plumbing can resolve them quickly. Call us at 786-346-5040.

5) Why do our drains get clogged?

Generally, most kitchen sink clogging is caused by carelessly putting grease and oily discards down the drain. Bathroom drains get clogged by residues from soap and hair. General care of what goes in drains and periodic maintenance treating with a safe cleaner will prevent clogged plumbing. For more information, visit our page about Clogged Drains
