Plumbing FAQ

What are the common causes of low water pressure in my home?

Low water pressure can result from clogged pipes, partially closed valves, faulty pressure regulators, or issues with the municipal supply. Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric can diagnose and fix low water pressure problems efficiently.

How can I prevent my drains from clogging?

Avoid pouring grease, coffee grounds, and food scraps down the sink. Use drain screens to catch hair and soap scum in the bathroom. Regularly flush drains with hot water and a mixture of baking soda and vinegar. We also offer professional drain cleaning services.

What should I do if I suspect a leak in my plumbing system?

Signs of leaks include unexplained high water bills, damp spots, mold growth, and reduced water pressure. Early detection and repair are crucial. Contact us for prompt leak detection and repair services using advanced technology.

How often should I have my plumbing inspected?

Annual inspections are recommended to identify and fix potential issues before they become major problems. Our comprehensive plumbing inspections help maintain your system’s integrity and prevent costly repairs.

What are the benefits of a tankless water heater?

Tankless water heaters provide endless hot water, are more energy-efficient, and have a longer lifespan compared to traditional tank heaters. We can help you choose and install the right tankless water heater for your home.

Why does my toilet keep running after flushing?

A running toilet can be caused by a faulty flapper, fill valve, or float. This issue wastes water and increases your bill. Our plumbers can quickly identify and repair the problem.

How can I avoid burst pipes in South Florida’s hot climate?

While burst pipes are more common in colder climates, pressure build-up from blockages or old, corroded pipes can cause bursts. Regular maintenance and inspections can prevent such issues. Contact us for preventive maintenance services.

What should I do if my electric water heater is not producing hot water?

If your electric water heater is not producing hot water, check the thermostat settings and ensure that the circuit breaker has not tripped. If these are not the issue, it could be a problem with the heating element or other components. Our technicians at Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric can diagnose and repair water heater problems efficiently to restore your hot water supply.

How do I know if I need a plumbing re-pipe?

Signs include frequent leaks, low water pressure, rusty water, and old, corroded pipes. Re-piping can improve water quality and pressure. Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric offers professional re-piping services using durable materials.

What are the advantages of a water filtration system?

A water filtration system provides clean, safe drinking water, reduces contaminants, and improves taste. Installing a filtration system can also prolong the lifespan of your plumbing fixtures. We offer various filtration solutions to meet your needs.
