Plumbing Tips & Tricks

  • For a clogged toilet - Try using a toilet plunger before calling. However, if this does not work on the first try, do not continue flushing.
  • If you drop a ring down the drain - Try using a coat hanger to fish it out.
  • For a clogged-up dishwasher - Try clearing the area around the drains it may have pieces of food covering it and preventing drainage.

Heating Tips & Tricks

  • We are always running out of hot water - Check to see if any appliances are being used at the same time. It may be just a matter of rearranging the cleaning schedule a little. Try wrapping your hot water heater and hot water pipes in insulation to raintain some heat.
  • I have no hot water at all - If you have an electric water heater, try resetting the breaker. If it trips again after resetting it, call us. If you have a gas heater, the pilot might be out. Just follow the directions on the front panel of the unit to light the pilot.

Sewer Tips & Tricks

  • What do I do about a sewer gas odor? Make sure traps are full of water, since the water in floor drains and other drain traps tends to evaporate. Make sure all caps are on and secure. Sometimes a small amount of bleach poured into the drain seems to help. Call Niezgodski Plumbing for service.
  • No Grease - Grease that is liquid when you pour it into the drain from your frying pan quickly becomes a stiff, sticky, and insoluble lump inside the pipe. Grease should never be flushed or put down sink drains.
  • Avoid flushing chemicals into the wastewater treatment system. Introducing chemical compounds such as drain cleaner, paint, thinners, or other household cleaners result in imbalances at the wastewater treatment plant.
