Q: Why does the toilet gurgle when I turn on the water?
A: If you notice bubbling, gurgling water in your toilet when you use the shower or sink, it’s a sign you have a leak somewhere. It could be a hidden leak under your home, in a wall, or outside. Consider this sound a serious warning and act quickly to remedy the situation.
Q: Why does water drain so slowly?
A: A slow draining sink, shower, or tub is a sign that there’s a clog or other obstruction in the drain pipe. This could be a build-up of hair, food, grease, or anything that’s been pushed down the drain. You could try to unclog it with a plunger, or give us a call and we’ll take care of it for you.
