What should I do if my faucet breaks?
First of all, do not panic, as with every mechanical object with moving parts, it will happen. Simply look under the sink for a small, oval, chrome-like handles. There will be one for hot water and one for cold water, turn both handles until the leakage ceases. If the handles do not stop turning then you will need to tighten the bolt closest to the handle and try again. If the handles are too tight and will not turn, then you can use a pair of pliers to shake them loose. In the case they will not move, do not apply excessive pressure as this can cause larger plumbing issues. Call Local Plumber 24 for professional help.
What is the life expectancy of my water heater?

The conventional water heater has a life expectancy of approximately 11 years. Scheduled maintenance from a Local Plumber 24 certified professional can prolong these life spans.
