Why is my Toilet Gurgling and Bubbling

Why is my Toilet Gurgling and Bubbling in Rochester, NY?

Frequently I get asked ” when the toilet upstairs is flushed it gurgling or bubbles in toilet downstairs ” There are a couple of things that could cause this to happen. Most of the time this is the beginning of a clogged line, somewhere below the downstairs toilet. In which case the plumbers at Leone Plumbing & Heating would locate the closest cleanout (usually found in basement) to gain entry to snake the line with the appropiate snake or (roto rooter) machine to clear the blockage. If there is not a cleanout then they would pull the first floor toilet to gain entry to the plumbing drain sysytem. In other cases it could be that a venting problem has developed and a Leone Plumbing & Heating technician would need to diagnose a strategic location to install a air admittance valve.

What to Do When You Have A Major Water Leak | Plumber Rochester NY

What to Do When You Have A Major Water Leak

I get questions from friends and customers that want to know what to do when there is a major water leak.  This is never an easy topic but I would like to shed some light on this subject so if or when this happens, you will be prepared. 1.  Turn off the water to the house The best thing to do when you find a leak is to turn the water off to the whole house.  This will ensure that where-ever the leak is at, it will not continue to receive more water to leak out. To do this you will need to locate the water meter for your home.  They are usually in the basement or utlity room.  Once you locate the meter, remove the lid.  Watch out for spiders and bugs!  Locate the main shut off and use a wrench to turn the valve (some have handle) into the closed position. 2.  Turn off the valve at the water heater If you find that your water heater is leaking then you need to cut off the water supply to the tank.  Usually there is a valve that is located above the tank and is welded into the water supply lines. Sometimes with older home these shut off valves become very fragile and can break.  If this happens use tip #1 and turn the water meter off. 3.  Get a fan and towels The best step you can take after turning the water off is to put a fan in front of the water spot.  This will help evaporate any water that you cannot soak up with a towel. 4.  Contact LEONE Plumbing & Heating This is all that I recommend to do as a homeowner because some situations are more serious than others.  Water damage is something that the Rochester NY Plumbers at Leone Plumbing and Heating takes very seriously, so follow these steps and they will help eliminate unnecessary water damage.  Then, call 585-458-5800.

Water Heater Replacement Tips

Water Heater Replacement Tips

Water heater replacement is something that Leone Plumbing and Heating specializes in!  If you have a water heater in your home or place of business you know that it is a matter of time until you will need to replace it.  If you have a tank water heater, I wanted to give some tips on what to look for but also what to expect if you have Leone plumbers change-out your water heater. If your water heater tank is in the basement of your home, business, or garage always check the copper lines going into the tank.  If you see corrosion or water sitting on top of the inlets, this is a sign of a leak!  Also, check the bottom of your water heater monthly (especially if it is old) for rust, corrosion, or dripping water.  This tip is especially important because the bottom of the tank could bust open and leak up 75 gallons of water, depending on the size of your tank.  Not good!  All of these problems would usually lead to your water heater needing to be replaced. After you call or schedule a trained Rochester, NY Plumber, such as those at Leone Plumbing and Heating to replace your water heater, we would get approval from you to do the work.  Then our plumbers would start to drain the water heater so they can remove it.  After most of the water has been drained the plumbers would remove the old water heater and bring in the new one. As an additional feature, before setting the new tank, the plumber will set an aluminum or plastic drain pan in order to keep water from leaking.  After setting the drain pan the new water heater is lifted-up and set into place.  A new water shut-off valve is set on the copper supply lines and everything for the supply lines is welded together.  Water is added to the tank and after it is full, electricity is hooked up or gas.  The plumber would then turn the unit on and set the temperature at your preferred setting.  It takes a couple of hours for water to heat-up to the set temperature. I hope that these tips have helped you to be able to spot a leak and know what to expect when you have Leone Plumbing & Heating come out and replace your water heater.

Fantastic experience with Andy. When we were flooded out, though he was very busy already, he responded immediately and took the time to ask the right questions and diagnose the issue. He offered his immediate help and we are back up and running! Very professional and understanding. This will be the first place I call from now on for any work needed.

I called Leone because I had sewer water in my basement. Two guys came to my house and spent a couple hours snaking my sewer drain, but unfortunately couldn't clear it. The next step was to install a lot line clean out (which was an entirely new concept for me). Andy took time to explain it and answer my questions, and we decided to go ahead with this project. Andy handled getting the utility lines staked, acquired necessary work permits, coordinated the inspection with the City, and when the job was done he communicated with the County to ensure they would come back to my house to unclog the sewer. The crew that handled the work (digging up my yard and installing the lateral pipe) showed up when they said they would and worked with great care and professionalism to ensure the job was done right and within the timeframe that was explained to me. They took pictures of everything and kept me informed throughout the process. The County did show up later that afternoon, as expected, and cleared the stoppage.

We called Leone plumbing because we had a water leak and zero clue where it was coming from. Our ceilings were full of water and floors ruined!! They came out same day found the leak and repaired it. After all the damage from the water we needed ALOT of work done. New floors up stairs and down stairs the ceiling replaced and new counter tops! Lucky us they are a one stop shop! The next day they had someone come out and do and estimate and had supplies ordered in that week!! We had family from out of state staying with us so our house was a bit cramped and Leone plumbing was more than accommodating when it came to what time they could start and what rooms to start. Very respectful workers and very friendly! Definitely something you do not see that often anymore in that trade!! Very happy with their work!!!
