Toilet Costing You Moolah?

How out of date is your toilet? If your toilet was sold earlier than 1994, it is certainly costing you a lots of money in water. Most outdated toilets used 3.5 gallons for every flush (gpf). Modern low-flow toilets take only 1.6 gallons for every flush and the most innovative low-flow styles offer you the comparable degree of flushing strength as old 3.5 gallon models. A Oakland plumbing contractor can set up an cost-efficient new toilet that will cut back on water and save you dough month after month.

At this time there are quite a few brand new environmentally-advantageous toilet styles that go even further to save water. A number of styles have a dual flushing process that works by using no more than 0.9 gallons to flush the liquid waste but all of the 1.6 gallons to flush solid waste.

Running Toilets

If you hear water running in your family toilet tank for extended stretches following a flush, then your toilet is leaking. It is dumping water in the overflow tube and wasting almost 200 gallons of water on a daily basis. The problem may very well be a corroded overflow pipe or flush valve assembly. Often times the perpetrator is a worn out flapper valve. Stop jiggling the handle and call Preferred Plumbing & Drain. Odds are you’ll save enough moolah on your upcoming few water payments to cover the charge of the plumbing repair.


Can there be a more hopeless experience than the minute a toilet won’t flush? Water goes up in the bowl and starts pouring on the floor as stress takes hold. If a toilet needs plunging on a steady basis, there is most likely a impediment in the trap or more deeply down the drainpipe. It may perhaps even be a symptom of a even larger problem even farther down the sewer line. We’re professionals at working with clogged toilets.

Showers and Tubs

Today’s bathrooms feature a myriad of shower and tub types. The majority are classic tub & shower combinations, some others are opulent with a wide range of water jets, shower heads and faucet designs. Preferred Plumbing & Drain licensed plumbing professionals are masters of all shower repairs, bathtub drain repairs, water pressure concerns and also installations/replacements. We are the professionals to contact for your bathroom plumbing solutions.


The best way to switch off the water supply if your faucet breaks? It occurs. Faucets break, on occasion violently, and water can start spraying across the walls and floor. Don’t freak out! Search below the sink for the water shut-off valves. So there is a cold water shut-off valve as well as a hot water shut-off valve. They’re generally chrome with a compact oval valve handle. Turn the handles clockwise until finally the water ceases pouring out of the faucet. From time to time water shut-off valves get stuck from infrequent use. If it does not budge, grab a pair of pliers and slowly turn the knob back and forth until eventually the rubber seat inside loosens. You shouldn’t strain it all at once or it might break and trigger even larger plumbing trouble. If the valve spins readily and won’t turn the internal seat, tighten up the set screw on the face and make an attempt once more. When the valve is moving, turn off the water and contact Preferred Plumbing & Drain.
