Common questions about your El Segundo Plumbing

Air Conditioning
El Segundo

Question:
What does a BTU really mean?

The Bob & Marc Answer:
A ton of cooling is now defined as delivering 12,000 BTU/hour of cooling. BTU is short for British Thermal Unit (and is a unit that the British do not use) The BTU is a unit of heating - or in this case, cooling - energy. It’s more important, however, to keep in perspective that a window air conditioner is usually less than one ton. A small home central air conditioner would be about two tons and a large one about five tons.

Tankless Water Heaters
El Segundo

Question:
What are the benefits of on demand hot water?

The Bob & Marc Answer:
Tankless Water heaters are designed to provide instantaneous hot water without the long wait time therefore ending the waste of water that typically occurs with a standard tank water heater. Tankless water heaters also give you a hot water experience that lasts as long as you want it to but this is where the savings can end if you do not manage the length you keep the stream going. Over all, most who use a tankless water heater have a positive experience and do save in the long run

Gas
El Segundo

Question:
How does gas destroy pipes?

The Bob & Marc Answer:
Gas does not have any effects on the gas line piping. The surrounding elements and the age of the pipe does. It is best to have a professional plumber do a visual check to make sure all is well. Underground gas pipes, if installed properly, should be good for a very long time after installation. That being saids, if you own an older model home or industrial building, have them checked closely and often for corrosion or damage.

Dishwashers
El Segundo

Question:
My dishwasher doesn't drain.

The Bob & Marc Answer:
Some water should be left behind after each wash. This is a normal thing. But, if you have an unreasonable amount of water left in the unit after a wash, check the drain / over flow outlet that is usually next to your kitchen faucet. It might be clogged.

Faucets
El Segundo

Question:
I cannot get hot water to come out of the faucet

The Bob & Marc Answer:
Weather it's a sink or shower faucet, it's probably something that is happening inside the faucet that is worn. Most newer faucets can be repaired by replacing the cartridge inside. Even though you can go Online and try to order the correct parts, it's confusing to most do it yourselfers. Have your plumber fix it for you as this is typically a very inexpensive service call.

Clean Outs
El Segundo

Question:
Q. Where are my clean-outs located?

The Bob & Marc Answer:
They can be located inside the house but are more often on the exterior of the house. You will need to carefully look at all sides to the house to find the sewer clean out because there could be more than one and they can be obscured by landscaping.
