  • What is considered a plumbing emergency?

    At Rudd Plumbing, some of the most common plumbing emergencies we tackle are those that threaten severe water damage. From overflowing toilets to burst pipes or malfunctioning sump pumps, our expert team responds fast and gets to work right away to effectively mitigate the problem. Other plumbing emergencies we handle include no or low water supply, faulty water heaters, and clogged drains, especially for homes with just one bathroom.

  • How do I prevent clogged drains?

    There are many ways to prevent your drains from clogging and one is by scheduling routine drain cleaning. Rudd Plumbing can provide regular cleaning or water jetting either on a monthly, quarterly or annually, depending on your needs. There are also some things that you can do on your own to prevent clogged drains such as putting a screen filter on your drains to catch food, hair, and other debris. You may also pour a vinegar-baking soda solution to get rid of foul odors and any buildup inside the pipes.

  • Is there a way to keep my faucets and sinks efficient?

    Problems with your faucets and sinks are some of the most common issues we tackle on a daily basis. If you wish to reduce the occurrence of these problems, there are some basic maintenance work that you can perform on your own to help ensure the efficiency and reliability of your faucets and sinks. One is to always check your faucets for any sign of corrosion or damage. We also recommend cleaning your faucet aerator annually to ensure efficient water flow. For sinks, on the other hand, just be sure not to put grease, food waste, and other foreign objects down the drain. If you notice even a small leak, call a professional right away.

  • Can I extend the lifespan of my garbage disposal?

    While garbage disposals are meant to help with food waste, there are some foods that are not meant to go down there such as rice, pasta, coffee grains, tea leaves, and large bones. Garbage disposals will also benefit from regular maintenance. There are many ways to maintain your garbage disposal without the need to call for a professional. One is pouring down a vinegar-baking soda solution monthly to help clean the pipes. Another is grinding citrus such as orange or lemon wedges to prevent foul odors. You can also grind some ice cubes to keep the blades sharp.

  • How can I tell if my toilet is leaking?

    If you suspect that your toilet is leaking, you can put a small amount of food coloring in the tank and come back a few hours later. If the water in the bowl has turned into the same color you put in the tank, there is definitely a leak. Call Rudd Plumbing right away to fix the leak and prevent a significant increase in your water bill.

  • What are the benefits of trenchless repairs?

    Before the trenchless method, there is no way for professional plumbers to repair or replace your pipeline unless they excavate the land where the pipes are located. Excavation often takes days and can create a big mess on your yard. Property owners often find themselves spending a costly amount for renting the excavator, having a larger manpower, and restoring their landscape or yard after all the digging. With trenchless repairs, our Tyler-based plumbers would only have to make two small holes to access and repair or replace the pipeline, saving you time, money, and effort.

  • What are slab leaks?

    Slab leaks come from cracks, holes, or other damages in the pipes that are located under your slab foundation. Since slab leaks are hidden, they usually cause severe damages even before you notice something wrong. However, there are some signs that you can look out for such as low water pressure, a sudden surge in your utility bills, and a running meter even if the main water valve is turned off. At Rudd Plumbing, we use sophisticated tools and methods to accurately and quickly identify a slab leak. Call us now if you are noticing any of the signs we mentioned.

  • Can you help with bathroom or kitchen renovations?
