Blue Apple offers plumbing repair services to residential and commercial customers across Las Vegas and surrounding communities. Our team of licensed and experienced plumbers is trained to repair a range of plumbing issues, including but not limited to:
While some of these issues may be addressed using DIY methods, serious plumbing problems will require professional plumbing service.
Leaking Pipes The most common problem plaguing plumbing systems is leaky pipes. Not only is this issue a nuisance, it can also signify underlying damage affecting the entire piping system. It’s important to address leaking pipes as soon as they’re noticed. Pipes usually develop leaks at pipe joints, and repairs should address the root cause.
A simple DIY solution may involve applying tape or compounds to stop the leak. However, a full replacement of the related fittings is a more effective and long-term solution. Homeowners should call Blue Apple for professional plumbing service to assess and fix their leaky pipes and prevent serious damage, such as structural damage or warping.
Dripping Faucets Drips can be caused by a worn or dislodged internal washer. A dripping faucet can also occur if parts of the plumbing system have become loose or broken.
Replacing the washer could help stop the dripping, but if not, a professional plumbing repair service is the only other option. Our team of plumbers will take a look at the system and recommend the necessary repairs.
Clogged Drains Drains can become clogged with a buildup of hair, dirt, soap, or food waste. Coffee grounds and bath bombs can also cause clogs. A few easy solutions include pouring hot water down the drain, using a plunger, or flushing a mixture of baking soda and vinegar down the drain.
If these methods fail to clear the clog, homeowners should call Blue Apple for professional plumbing service.
Low Water Pressure Low water pressure can be caused by leaking, broken, or worn out pipes.
The solution for low water pressure will involve identifying leaks, clearing the clogs, and replacing the regulator. A professional plumber is trained to take care of these steps.
Failing Sump Pump A sump pump can fail to work properly due to electrical power failure, poor size, and improper installation. One sign of a failing sump pump is water accumulating at the lowest areas in the home, such as the crawlspace.
Homeowners can remove minor pooling by mopping or using a wet/dry vacuum, but will need the expertise of a professional plumber to take care of sump pump replacements and repairs.
Malfunctioning Water Heater Problems with the water heater may be caused by a gas leak, failing gas valve, leaking tank, or a malfunctioning thermostat.
Replacing old valves or clearing clogs from pipes may help address the issue. But problems caused by broken components will require professional repair.
Clogged or Running Toilet A clogged toilet can be caused by foreign objects, hard water, or worn pipes, while a running toilet can be caused by a faulty flapper or sediment build-up. Depending on the cause, DIY methods could fix the issue, but in other instances, the help of a professional plumber will be required.
