Faucet Leaks

If you are experiencing a leaky faucet, don’t stress too much. This is the most frequent plumbing repair in every household. Not only is a dripping faucet an annoyance, but it also wastes water, resulting in an increased price in your water bill – No Bueno. Even the most minor faucet leak can add up to hundreds of gallons throughout the year. In most cases, faucet leaks stem from an internal washer being torn or dislodged, a simple fix for a professional plumber!

Slow Draining Sinks

If you are experiencing your sinks draining at a slower rate, generally, it’s because of your drainpipes being blocked, causing a restriction of water flow. The blockage could be caused by food waste, congealed fat, or other oily substances. While you might find success using a chemical solution, beware that it can cause damage to your pipes. Neal’s Plumbing, LLC has experience dealing with clogged drains, and we can quickly assess the situation and restore your drains to working order.

Clogged Shower Drains

While your kitchen sinks tend to get clogged with food waste, your shower drains primary suspect is hair. Like any other drain that is clogged, there can be a couple of various solutions. For instance, you can use a baking soda/vinegar combination to help dissolve the blockage or decide on a chemical solution. Beware, if your pipes are exposed to an abundance of chemicals, it can severely damage your pipes. A final solution could be running a drain snake down your pipes to loosen up the blockage – Neal’s Plumbing, LLC specialty.

Toilet Repair in Troy IL

Clogged Toilets

Almost everyone understands the hint of fear that slowly makes its way into your consciousness, as you start to see the toilet bowl filling up, water rising, only to discover that you are dealing with a clogged toilet. Clogged toilets are generally due to a mixture of toilet paper and human waste. For the most part, a plunger should be the resolution. However, if your plunger is unable to get the job done – contact Neal’s Plumbing, LLC. We can run a sewer snake or drain auger down your pipes to eliminate the clog.

Running Toilets

A running toilet may not seem like much, but it can result in the loss of 200 gallons of water per day. This is most commonly because of a damaged flapper valve. The flapper valve is responsible for controlling the flow of water that passes from your tank to the bowl. This is a pretty straightforward fix.

Another reason for running toilets could be caused because of sediment affecting the toilet flushing and filling process. If you notice an increase in your water bill, inspect your toilet for silent leaks – put food coloring in your tank and see if it filters into your bowl without flushing.

Water Heater Repair

Unfortunately, this may be a problem that you can’t readily identify until your relaxing, steamy shower turns into an arctic freeze. Your water heater can fail for a variety of reasons. Your pilot light could go out; sediment builds up in your tank or your thermostat. If your water heater problem is something simple like relighting your pilot light, you probably don’t need to call for professional plumbing repairs. However, if it is something more, reach out to Neal’s Plumbing, LLC to prevent the damage from getting worse.

Water Pressure too Low

Water pressure is too low is typically a problem that comes with older homes. There are a couple of reasons that your water pressure is low. It could be a build-up of sediment and mineral deposits on aerators or a broken pipe. If you are suffering from low water pressure, contact your local plumber for a professional resolution.

Garbage Disposal Issues

Your garbage disposal is one of the most useful appliances in your kitchen. It effectively breaks down food waste and allows for your kitchen drains to run smoothly. However, using your garbage disposal without running water or running your disposal with silverware inside can cause all sorts of problems. The first step should always be to hit the reset button. If that doesn’t do the trick, your garbage disposal needs to be opened to help identify the problem. Contact your local plumber at Neal’s Plumbing, LLC for a speedy resolution!

Leaky Pipes

If your pipes start to leak, having a plumber fix it sooner than later is in your best interest. Otherwise, you could be looking at water damage to your floors and furniture which can encourage cockroaches to move in. For the most part, leaks in your pipes are located at the pipe joints. You can opt for a temporary solution using tape, compounds, or fillers, but for a more permanent resolution – contact Neal’s Plumbing, LLC. We specialize in replacing your pipes or the related fittings.

Sewer System Backup

What does a sewer system backup and Freddy Kreuger have in common? They are both in your nightmares (ba dum tsss). Seriously. If you are dealing with toilets, various drains not working and a horrendous odor of human waste – welcome to Elm Street. It smelly, disgusting, a major inconvenience and can get pricey to fix.

Typically, there are three reasons for a sewer system backup. 1) Your main sewer is clogged. 2) Tree roots have infiltrated your pipes causing cracks. 3) Your sewer lines are old and deteriorating. You can save yourself some money by first calling your water utility company and seeing if the problem lies on their end. If it doesn’t, Neal’s Plumbing, LLC is more than happy to help!

Code Corrections that Keep Your System Sound

All homes are built to precise standards or building codes that ensure the structural security of your system. Additionally, ignoring these codes could make your plumbing system unsafe or unsanitary and may even have other lasting effects. Typically, newer homes are more code compliant, while older homes are usually not updated as fast as the building codes are. That’s where a licensed plumber comes in handy. They’ll ensure that plumbing repairs or new installations are done to code and can alert you of any safety or health concerns.
