Frequently Asked Questions About Our Plumbing Services

  1. Why is the name of the business “Sav-On Plumbing?”
    It's because that's what you'll do if you call us for your plumbing needs. If you have any doubts, get two other estimates, then call us. Our price will consistently be lower than the other guys, and you'll love our service. We'll guarantee it.


  2. We run out of hot water after only a short time; that never happened before. Why?
    Most likely you have an element or thermostat on your water heater that needs replacement. We can test that and quote you a price before we do the work so you'll know the exact cost before we start.


  3. We can hear water running but we can't see it anywhere. What's going on?
    Usually it will be a bad flapper in a toilet letting water go down the drain “sight unseen”; however it could be a hose bib not shutting off all the way, or possibly the irrigation system leaking.


  4. We have a “hot spot” on our floor; what is causing that?
    It could be a hot water pipe under the floor is not buried as deep as it should be, or it is possible there is a hot water leak (slab leak) under the concrete.


  5. Our sewer line/drain lines keep backing up. We get them cleaned but it doesn't take long and we have same problem. What's wrong?
    This is usually caused by “tree roots” in the sewer line that aren't being cut out entirely and grow back quickly. There are several other possible causes, seperating pipe, sinking pipes, etc. This may require a video inspection to get to the cause of the problem.


  6. Our pipes make “knocking sounds” in the wall. How do we get them to stop?
    Sometimes this can be caused by a loose washer vibrating when a valve is turned off; other times it may require the installation of a “hammer arrestor” on the water line.


  7. Our water bill has gone up a lot in the last month; why?
    The most common reason for this is a toilet that is not shutting off all the way, letting water overflow the stand pipe in the toilet and go silently down the drain.

  8. Why should we call you for our plumbing needs and not “Joe the Plumber” two miles away?
    You'll save more than money with Sav-On Plumbing; you'll save time and aggravation. We'll show up at the agreed upon time, won't charge you a service call, and will complete the work in the time frame agreed upon with you, the customer.
