PLUMBING FAQ

Q: What should I do about a clogged toilet/drain?

There are a lot of do it yourself methods for unclogging a toilet or drain. From the baking soda and vinegar technique, to plungers, coat hangers, and purchasing a toilet snake, all of these methods can work but are not guaranteed. Your best bet is to call McGee Plumbing & Mechanical, Inc. Not only will we unclog your toilet or sink, we'll ensure the same thing doesn't happen again any time soon.

Q: Why is my shower pressure so weak?

Poor water pressure can be caused by hard-water buildup in pipes, hot water tank issues such as sediment buildup, or a problem with the water line such as it being pinched. Regular maintenance should stop these things from happening but if they have happened, you'll need to call in a professional licensed plumber.

Q: What should I do during a plumbing emergency?

Call us immediately! We make ourselves available 24/7 for this exact reason.

Q: What should I do if the toilet won't stop running?

There's a simple fix for this. The water level in our toilet's tank is controlled by a floating cap. By going inside your tank, you can adjust the cap. If it keeps happening, you may need a replacement. Get in touch with us and we can do the job quickly and affordably.

Q: How do I shut off the water to the entire house?

Look for the main valve to your house. It will be outside by your water meter. Then, just turn it clockwise until it stops. There will be residual water in the pipes if you run a tap but it will clear out with use.
