Q: Is there a way to prevent my sink from becoming clogged?
A: Be sure that liquids, such as grease, are not poured down the drain. Some liquids solidify and clog the pipes.

Some solids, such as lettuce, celery, and potato peelings, can be stringy and clog up the pipes. It is advisable to toss those types of food items in the garbage can.

Wipe up any debris, such as hair, in the bathroom sink, shower, or tub before it becomes a problem. Even small amounts of hair can cause problems.

If your drain does become clogged, call Eagle Plumbing to fix the problem.

Q: What caused my faucet to start dripping?
A: There could be a number of reasons. Water with a high level of minerals could have corroded the inside of the faucet mechanism. Or, some parts of the inside of the faucet may have worn out and need to be replaced.

Eagle Plumbing has the expertise to determine if a gasket, o-ring, or washer may be the problem. It is not uncommon to arrive at a call and have to replace the entire water faucet mechanism because the homeowner tried to repair the "simple" problem and scratched or broke the faucet because he did not have the training or proper tools to do the job the right way.
