Your Top 10 Questions about Missoula Plumbing Repair

10.   What is causing my Missoula faucet to be leaking from the neck?

Most likely, the O-ring is worn out and needs to be replaced.  This is a fairly simple fix you can DIY with parts from a local home improvement store.  If you decide to do this on your own, make sure to turn off the water supply before taking any parts apart.

9.       How do I stop my single-control faucet from leaking at the base?

This could be caused by a worn-out diverter.  With just a few tools and replacement parts from your local hardware store, you can do this repair on your own.  It is not a bad idea to go ahead and replace the O-rings and nylon bushings while you have the faucet taken apart. 

8.       Why is my Missoula faucet dripping after I turn it off?

The most common culprit of a leaky faucet is a worn-out washer.  This plumbing repair can be done pretty quickly and easily, with the proper replacement pieces from a home improvement store.  If you decide to do this on your own, you can ensure you find the right washer by taking the valve stem to the hardware store with you and matching the new washer to it.

7.       Why is my outside faucet leaking?

Being outside, this faucet is not only being worn down by use but is also affected by the elements.  You can do much upkeep on these and ultimately still need to update or replace the whole system.  If you have already done a few DIY repairs on an outdoor faucet, we suggest calling Missoula plumbing repair professionals to check out your system and see what can be done to improve it.

6.       Ever since I got a bathtub/shower liner, any drain clogs that occur are 10x harder to fix.  What can I do?

Because of how these liners are glued in, it can be hard to access your drain pipes to deal with clogs.  It is best to have a Missoula Plumbing Repair Professional come out to your property to see what can be done.

5.       My hot water heater is giving me one problem after the next. Can I do anything to prevent further issues?

Hot water heaters have a typical life expectancy of about a decade, plus or minus 2 years.  If your water heater is getting to this age, you might be stuck doing repairs until you do a replacement.  If your water heater is just a couple of years old, you may be dealing with some sort of manufacturer’s defect.  Check to see if your product is still under warranty and explore that option.  If you are getting to your whit’s end, give your Missoula plumbing repair contractor to see what can be done.

4.       My hot water heater needs to be replaced and I want to get a combi boiler to provide hot water to my house as well as my heating system. How complicated would this transition be?

Choosing a combi boiler is a great option that can provide hot water for faucets, showers, etc while also heating water for your heating system.  Transitioning your system from separate systems to one combination system can get complicated depending on a number of factors.  We suggest calling your reliable Missoula plumbing repair guys to come to check your system and give a recommendation.  Missoula Heating and Plumbing can do the installation for you promptly and reliably when you are ready to make the switch.
