1. Why do drains get clogged?

1. Why do drains get clogged?

For the most part, kitchen drains clog because people get careless with what they put in them. Bathroom drains tend to clog because of hair buildup, and oil residue from soaps and shampoos. Treating them with a drain cleaner can help eliminate clogs but more severe clogs will require professional help.

2. Why does my faucet drip?

Usually a dripping faucet is the result of an internal component that needs repairs or replacement. This is an inexpensive and simple fix that can save you tons of money over time.

3. Is it a big deal if my toilet runs non-stop?

Leaky toilets can add hundreds of dollars every year onto your Marblehead water bill. A toilet that runs non-stop indicates that some part of the mechanism is faulty.

4. What can I put in my garbage disposer?

Almost all biodegradable food waste can be put into garbage disposals. However, high-fiber content foods and non-food materials should never be run through a disposer.
