Why does my drain get clogged?
Mostly, drains are clogged because people are not being careful about what they are putting in them, especially in the kitchen. Some other drains, such as in the bathroom, get clogged due to the oil residue from shampoos, soaps, and hair. Therefore, it is highly suggested to be conscious of what you are putting down your drains, and treat them with a drain cleaner on a regular basis.
Is it a big deal for my toilet to be running?
It is not just an annoyance, but also a waste of money and water. Leaky toilets are costing approximately hundred dollars each year on your water bills.

At times, a little jiggling of the flush valve mechanism can solve the problem. Otherwise, you may have to get the entire mechanism replaced. Contact us to diagnose the problem.
