Frequently Asked Questions
My hot water heater is running out too fast. Why?
If you notice the water heater’s supply of hot water isn’t lasting long, it may be an issue with your tank water heater. The heating element will sometimes accumulate too much grime and mineral buildup.
Why is my toilet running?
A toilet that won’t stop running could be dealing with several different problems, including a broken flapper seal, flush valve or flapper chain. Sometimes it’s the handle itself that’s causing the problem. A running toilet wastes a lot of water, so it’s important to call Expert plumbers promptly at 518-417-2938.
Why isn’t my dishwasher draining?
One of the most common reasons your dishwasher isn’t draining correctly is because the drain line is clogged. The line, also known as a drain hose, removes water from the dishwasher tub at the end of a cycle. If the drain line is clogged, water may not be able to flow properly. Contact Roland J.

What should I do if a pipe bursts?
A quick response is important if you’re dealing with a burst pipe as a result of freezing. Expert plumbers should handle broken pipe repairs, but there are several things you can do by yourself to keep the pipes from freezing up in the first place:
Open kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors to permit warmer air to circulate around the plumbing. Be sure to move any harmful cleaners and household chemicals up out of the reach of children.
Let the cold water drip from faucets served by exposed pipes. Running water through the pipe—even at a trickle—helps prevent ice from forming and freezing.
Minimize changes to the thermostat and keep your home at least 50 degrees, even in situations where you’re not home.

What should I do if my garbage disposal smells?
Break down food scraps right away with cold water and leave the disposal on for about 30 seconds to ensure everything is broken down. Everyone should also never put coffee grounds, eggshells, potato peels and other large pieces of food into the disposal, because they may restrict drainage and cause damage and bad smells.
