If you’re faced with a toilet clog, turn of the toilet’s water shut-off valve behind the tank to avoid an overflow, and then try using a plunger. If your plunger is in good condition and you are using the right amount of pressure, the clog should eventually break, and the water will drain. If the clog won’t clear through normal means, just call Archer! We have plenty of experience fixing clogs.
Not to worry, this is a common concern and can be easily remedied. The most likely cause is that the flush valve in your toilet tank is not sealing correctly, causing water to leak from the tank into the bowl. It could be caused by a faulty flapper, faulty flush valve or the lift chain getting twisted. If you’re unsure, just call Archer! We’re happy to inspect any noisy or malfunctioning water fixture to find the cause of the problem.
There are many reasons that your pipes could be draining slowly, such as cracked or collapsed drains or a serious clog deep in the system. The only way to know for sure is to have your pipes inspected. Archer is happy to inspect your system to get to the root of the problem and find the right solution for your problem.
It depends on the kind of tank you are using, but there are a number of simple answers. If you’re using an electric water heater, the high temperature cut-off may have tripped and needs resetting, or it could be a faulty thermostat or heating element. If you’re using a gas water heater, your pilot light might have gone out or you may have a malfunctioning gas valve or thermocouple. If you’re unsure, just call Archer! We’ll be happy to inspect your system to figure out what’s keeping your water from heating up.
Rattling pipes are almost always caused by water lines not being properly secured, making them come into contact with the wood in your floor joists. Call Archer, and we can inspect your pipes and properly secure your water lines to help keep the noise down.
