BERGEN COUNTY PLUMBING TIP: FIXING LEAKY SHOWER HEADS

BERGEN COUNTY PLUMBING TIP: FIXING LEAKY SHOWER HEADS

June 19, 2013

Are you frustrated by a spray of cold water as you try to enjoy your hot shower? Or by the amount of water that goes down the drain unused? Fixing leaky showerheads may seem like a minor issue, but it’s actually incredibly important to your plumbing system that any leaks are taken care of promptly. Neglecting them leads to higher utility bills, and increased risk of major damage. There are various reasons why your showerhead may be leaking, but if you’re thinking of attempting to fix the leak yourself, there are a few things you can do before calling a professional plumber. Call BZ Dependable today for comprehensive plumbing in Bergen County.

Try to remove your showerhead by hand. If it won’t budge, then you may need a wrench or pliers. Once it’s off, there may be some kind of gasket, washer, or O-ring where the showerhead screws into the supply pipe. This should be replaced if it looks damaged or worn. Put the showerhead back on gently, making sure it is firmly screwed on, but there’s no need to tighten it with anything other than your hand. Once re-attached, the problem should be solved..

If not, and there is still a constant leak, then there could be a problem with the shower water valve itself, which is supply water to the pipe despite what the faucet says. This is a job for a professional plumber, so if the initial DIY approach didn’t pan out, then you can rely on a plumber to diagnose the issue for you. While such leaks seem minor, they can adversely affect your plumbing system. They can lead to structural damage, higher utility bills, and increased wear and tear on your piping.

HEADED ON VACATION? HAVE YOU CHECKED YOUR WATER MAIN?

July 13, 2012

It is summer vacation time again! We hope you and your family are headed somewhere nice, but want to remind all BZ Dependable Plumbing and Heating customers to make sure that you prepare your home for you departure.

As you pack and rush around getting ready to go on vacation it is easy to forget to prepare your home. Make sure that you unplug appliances that won’t be in use. You should also set your AC to vacation mode, or manually increase the temperature to 80 degrees to save money on energy bills while you are gone. Be sure that all windows are securely shut and locked and blinds or curtains are closed. Not only is the a good security measure, but also helps to keep your home cool and lower energy costs.

Last but not least, be sure to shut off your water main is you will be gone for a prolonged period of time. This helps eliminate a water emergency while you are away. For shorter trips (day trips or weekends) be sure that all faucets are turned off and that your toilets are not running. If you suspect that you have a leak somewhere in your plumbing it is a good idea to have a technician perform leak detection prior to your vacation. Be sure to leave the BZ Dependable contact information for anyone house sitting so that we can address emergency situations.
