Dripping Faucets Cause Real Problems!
Do you have a dripping faucet in your kitchen or bathroom? It goes unnoticed during the day and then night time rolls around. You lay down in your comfy bed and then the sounds of the faulty plumbing play loud and clear through the night air. This is a common problem for homeowners and renters alike. It may not seem like much water at the time, but did you know that dripping faucet can cause your water bill to go up, and cost you hundreds throughout a years time. That’s right your dripping faucet can cost more than a family vacation, and that’s just your water bill.
Did you know that a dripping faucet can cost as much as a family vacation? That's right, the little annoying drip that keeps you up at night can add hundreds of dollars to your water bill through the year. And who want's to wash away money?
Even the smallest of problems can cost you thousands of dollars if not handled quickly and efficiently. Leaky pipes are one of the leading causes to mold growth in a home or business, and mold can cause health problems. So fixing those minor plumbing problems now can save you way more than money.

We know you work hard for your money, and that is why Big Country Plumbing will work hard for you.
Leaky pipes can cause problems of their own. If you notice moisture underneath your cabinets, it's likely that you have a seal leaking between the inlet water line and the faucet. Overtime the rubber seal will dry out and begin to crack. This usually starts as a very slow leak, but if left un-repaired long enough you may have a full stream of water running out of your cabinets.
Running Toilets Cause Real Problems!
Running toilets can also add hundreds of dollars to your water bill, but instead of over a years time, it can happen in a month. Replacing the flapper in the tank is sometimes all it will take to solve the problem. If that doesn't fix it you may need a new tank fill valve, either way the repair is cheap compared to the water you'll use. Most toilet repairs are simple fixes unless you have children like ours, who think that the toilet is "Barbie's swimming pool".
Have you ever noticed your floor around your toilet being wet? This is a sign that the wax ring is not sealing properly. The wax ring is what serves as the stopping point for the water, what we mean by this is that it provides an airtight seal to allow water to pass from the toilet into the drain pipe without getting water on the floor. Do not ignore this problem, as it can cause major damage to your flooring.
If your toilet is clogged a plunger may provide the fix your are needing. If you have already tried the plunger and to no avail, call on us, we'll bring out the tools for the job and unclog that toilet, or line that's holding back the flow.
