Frequently Asked Questions about Plumbing

At Doherty Plumbing Co. in the Chantilly area, we are happy to help you with large and small plumbing problems. If you are experiencing a plumbing emergency, you can review these questions and answers while you are waiting for repair services from our company. Many people have common questions about sewer lines or clogged drains, so we have compiled the top five plumbing FAQs here.

  1. Why do drains get clogged? For the most part, kitchen drains clog because people get careless with what they put in them. Bathroom drains tend to clog because of hair buildup, and oil residue from soaps and shampoos. Treating them with a drain cleaner can help eliminate clogs but more severe clogs will require professional help.
  2. Do I need a plumber to fix a leaky faucet or a clogged drain? A plumber in the Chantilly area is highly skilled at repairing pipes and plumbing related fixtures, and can diagnose and solve problems that you might not be able to detect.
  3. Why does my faucet drip? Usually a dripping faucet is the result of an internal component that needs repairs or replacement. This is an inexpensive and simple fix that can save you tons of money over time.
  4. Is it a big deal if my toilet runs non-stop? Leaky toilets can add hundreds of dollars every year onto your Chantilly water bill. A toilet that runs non-stop indicates that some part of the mechanism is faulty.
  5. What can I put in my garbage disposal? Almost all biodegradable food waste can be put into garbage disposals. However, high-fiber content foods and non-food materials should never be run through a disposer.
