How would I know if my toilet leaks? If it is, what should I do?
Toilet leaks occur in two ways and very often are difficult to detect. First, the most common toilet leak and often hardest to detect is caused by a deteriorated or defected flush valve (flapper) or "tank" ball at the bottom of the toilet tank. If the flapper or ball valve does not seat properly and form a water-tight seal, water will leak around it into the toilet bowl. Often, this leak will occur without being heard. Here is an easy way to check for flush valve leaks and in just minutes, you can find out if a toilet is wasting thousands of gallons due to an undiscovered water leak. Remove the tank lid, then flush. After the flapper/tank ball drops and the tank refills, add several drops of dark food coloring) or a Fluidmaster leak detector tablet. Wait at least 20 minutes. If any trace of color appears in the toilet bowl, there is a leak. The second most-common type of leak is caused by improperly adjusted or broken fill valve. If the float is set too high or the shut-off valve fails to close completely, water will continue to enter the tank and flow into the overflow tube. This type of leak can be seen simply by taking the tank top off and observing if water is flowing into the overflow tube once the tank is full. Excess water pressure can also have a negative effect on the operating system in your toilet. If you are experiencing either of these types of leaks and need service to fix them, contact our office.
I bought a new refrigerator/freezer and I was planning to move my old one out to the garage and use it for additional cold storage space. Will it damage the unit if I store it in the garage?
Only if it is a self-defrosting refrigerator and the temperature in your garage drops below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, it is possible that the oil could thicken and cause premature compression failure.
How many amps does a clothes dryer pull?
Depending on the strength of the current and temperature, how much power it uses will vary. Ideally, you should have a 30 Amp breaker. The dryer is only going to use 25 Amps, though.
Do I Need Maintenance on My Bathroom Plumbing?
Like most other things, your home's plumbing needs routine maintenance to keep everything operating smoothly and in good condition. The plumbing system will ultimately break down without regular maintenance and repairs, which might cause serious issues. Finding a solution is always preferable since it is typically much less expensive and stressful. The solution is preventative plumbing maintenance, which every homeowner should consider arranging with their plumbing professional.

How many amps is a 2000 watt generator?
A 2000-watt generator can provide up to 16 Amps in case of 120 volts and eight amps in case of 240 volts. We haven't seen a 2000-watt generator that would have the capacity to output as much power.
