Helpful Plumbing & HVAC Information in Alexandria

We’re Equipped to Handle All of Your Problems—Big or Small!

Whether you have a simple and small plumbing/HVAC problem or a complicated and serious issue, our team at Kramer and Sons can provide you with the reliable answers and services you need. Below, we have compiled answers to commonly asked questions.

What Should I Do If My Garbage Disposal isn’t Working?

Try running cold water to move the waste down the drain lines. Make sure you aren’t putting in hard to grind stuff such as clam or oyster shells or cornhusks. We also strongly discourage putting glass, plastic or metal items through the garbage disposal. If you aren’t able to fix the issue yourself, don’t hesitate to contact our office and let our expert Alexandria plumbers help you.

What Should I Do if My Toilet is Running?

Jiggle the flush valve mechanism to see if there are just loose working parts. If this doesn’t fix the problem, you may need to call our office to replace the entire mechanism.

What Should I Do if My Water Heater is Leaking?

Promptly call a professional heating technician. If you are experiencing a leak, this normally means your tank has rusted and will need to be replaced. For your convenience, we offer same-day services!

What Should I Do if My Pipes are Leaking?

If your pipes are leaking, the best thing you can do is contact a plumbing professional immediately to minimize damage to floors and belongings. However, if you want to prevent leaking pipes in the future, you may also want to check for rust or lime deposits.

What Should I Do if My Faucet is Dripping?

Dripping faucets can be annoying and a waste of water. Try tightening the knob further to stop the leak. However, if the faucet continues to drip, there may be something wrong with the faucet washer. If this is the problem, you may want to contact our Alexandria plumbers right away. We also advise you to turn off your faucet gently as soon as your faucet washer is replaced to extend its lifespan.

What Should I Do if My Drains are Clogged?

You need to be careful that things like soap, shampoo, and hair don’t build up in your drains. If you are experiencing clogged drains, you may want to treat them with Bio-Clean or RootX cleaners. These drain cleaners are proven to be gentle on pipes while getting rid of clogs in your drains.
