Top 5 Essential Plumbing Techniques You Need to Know


At Buchanan Service Company, we understand that plumbing issues can disrupt the harmony of your home. That's why our expert plumbers are here to share five essential techniques that every homeowner should know to maintain a smoothly running plumbing system. As your trusted plumbing service provider, we believe in empowering our clients with the knowledge they need to handle common plumbing problems effectively.

1. Leaky Faucet Solutions:

A dripping faucet can be a constant annoyance, but our skilled technicians are well-versed in fixing this common issue. By turning off the water supply, disassembling the faucet, and replacing the faulty components, we can put an end to those persistent leaks. Our team ensures that the replacement parts used are of the highest quality for lasting results.

2. Drain Unclogging Expertise:

Clogged drains are no match for our professional plumbers. Instead of resorting to harsh chemicals, we employ advanced techniques such as using plungers and plumbing snakes. Our experts know how to create a tight seal with a plunger or thread a plumbing snake through the drain to break up and remove stubborn clogs, ensuring optimal drainage.

3. Running Toilet Repairs:

A running toilet not only wastes water but can be a sign of underlying issues. Our technicians excel in diagnosing and repairing running toilets. By inspecting and adjusting the flapper and fill valve, we ensure your toilet operates efficiently, saving you money on your water bill. Trust us to keep your toilets in top-notch condition.

4. Professional Pipe Sealing with Teflon Tape:

Leaking pipes can cause extensive damage, but our experts have a quick and effective solution. We use high-quality Teflon tape, also known as pipe tape, to seal leaks at pipe joints. This simple yet reliable technique prevents further water damage and ensures the integrity of your plumbing system.

5. Water Heater Maintenance for Reliable Performance:

Regular water heater maintenance is essential for a consistent supply of hot water. Our skilled technicians specialize in flushing water heaters to remove sediment buildup. By turning off the power or gas supply, connecting a hose to the drain valve, and flushing the tank, we help you maintain the efficiency and longevity of your water heater.



At Buchanan Service Company, we take pride in not only offering exceptional plumbing services but also in sharing our expertise with homeowners. These five essential techniques are just a glimpse of the comprehensive solutions we provide. Remember, for plumbing issues beyond your comfort zone, our professional team is always ready to step in and ensure your plumbing system functions flawlessly.
