With this situation, there are some things that you can do. One thing you should do is check your water pressure. The ‘safe zone’ for the water pressure is 30-50 psi. If your water pressure is more than 60 psi for an extended period time, then that may lead to a problem. If leaky pipes is the case for you, give our trusted technicians at US Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 407-774-9850. We’d be happy to assist.
If you’re suspicious that you may have a leak but you’re not sure where it it’s hiding, here’s a simple way you can check. Go to your water meter, watch and record the level. Ensure that nobody uses any water in the building for an hour or two. Then go back and note the level. If your level has changed, then you most likely have a leak. Definitely call US Heating & Air Conditioning so we can take care of that problem for you!

Definitely. Making sure that your garbage disposal is working efficiently is important. In order to get the maximum life of your garbage disposal, these items shouldn’t be run through your garbage disposal:

  • Potato skins
  • Bone fragments and eggshells
  • Banana peels
  • Fats / grease
  • Unpopped popcorn kernels
  • Onion skins
  • Fruit pits and seeds
  • Stringy vegetables like asparagus and celery

 

If toilet continues overflowing, then your reason may be that your tank’s fill valve has deterioration or has a leak. Either way, contact us at 407-774-9850 so we can help!
