Top General Plumbing FAQs in Longmont, CO

When it comes to plumbing, homeowners in Longmont, CO often have a multitude of questions swirling in their minds. From minor concerns to major emergencies, understanding the ins and outs of plumbing systems is essential for maintaining a comfortable and functional home. At D.N.I. Heating-Cooling-Refrigeration-Plumbing, we recognize the importance of addressing these inquiries head-on, providing reliable solutions to your general plumbing FAQs.

  1. How can I prevent frozen pipes during the winter months?
    Frozen pipes are a common concern for homeowners in Colorado’s freezing winters. To prevent this, insulate exposed pipes, allow faucets to drip during freezing temperatures, and keep interior temperatures above 55°F. If you suspect frozen pipes, contact us immediately to prevent potential damage.
  2. What should I do if my water heater is leaking?
    A leaking water heater can indicate various issues, such as faulty valves or corrosion. Start by turning off the water supply and contacting us for professional inspection and repair. Ignoring a leaking water heater can lead to significant water damage and energy loss.
  3. How often should I schedule professional drain cleaning services?
    Regular drain cleaning helps prevent clogs and maintain optimal plumbing performance. We recommend scheduling professional drain cleaning annually to keep your pipes free of debris and buildup, reducing the risk of blockages and sewer backups.
  4. What are signs of a hidden water leak?
    Signs of a hidden water leak include unexplained increases in water bills, water stains on walls or ceilings, and musty odors. If you suspect a hidden leak, our team utilizes advanced leak detection technology to pinpoint the source and provide prompt repairs, saving you time and money in the long run.
  5. How can I improve water pressure in my home?
    Low water pressure can be frustrating and may indicate underlying issues such as sediment buildup or a faulty pressure regulator. Our plumbing experts can assess your system, identify the root cause, and recommend solutions such as installing a pressure booster or cleaning aerators to restore optimal water pressure.
  6. What should I do if my toilet keeps running?
    A continuously running toilet is not only annoying but also wasteful. This issue is often caused by a faulty flapper valve or a malfunctioning fill valve. Our technicians can quickly diagnose and repair the problem, restoring your toilet to proper functionality and conserving water.
  7. How do I know if I need to replace my aging plumbing fixtures?
    Aging plumbing fixtures may exhibit signs of wear and tear, such as corrosion, leaks, or diminished performance. If your fixtures are showing signs of deterioration or are outdated, upgrading to modern, water-efficient fixtures can enhance both the aesthetics and efficiency of your home.
  8. What should I do in case of a plumbing emergency?
    In the event of a plumbing emergency such as a burst pipe or gas leak, it’s crucial to act quickly to minimize damage and ensure your family’s safety. Turn off the main water or gas supply, evacuate the premises if necessary, and contact our 24/7 emergency plumbing services for immediate assistance.
  9. What causes a foul odor to emanate from my drains, and how can I eliminate it?
    Foul odors from drains are often due to organic matter buildup, sewer gas leaks, or dried-out P-traps. To eliminate odors, try pouring a mixture of hot water and vinegar down the drain, followed by baking soda. If the odor persists, it may indicate a more serious issue such as a sewer line leak, requiring professional inspection and repair from our experienced plumbers.
  10. Is it necessary to install a water softener in my home, and what are the benefits?
    In areas with hard water, installing a water softener can provide numerous benefits, including extending the lifespan of plumbing fixtures, reducing mineral buildup in pipes, and improving the efficiency of water-using appliances. Our team can assess your water quality and recommend the appropriate water softening system to enhance the quality of your water and protect your plumbing investment.

What our clients are saying

R. Larson

Extremely happy with my decision to use DNI. Installed cash price of my new furnace & AC unit was about 23% lower than the competition. Chris was very knowledgeable, conscientious, and top notch! The whole crew was excellent!

R. Barcklow

DNI and Chris specifically were amazing. My furnace went out with the first Colorado storm and they were able to come out the next day and provided me with honest, transparent service so I could make the best decision for my budget. There was never any pressure from Chris between buying a new furnace and fixing my old one. I felt like they were patient and willing to work with me and my needs. I would highly recommend DNI for heating services.

J. Jacobs

The service personnel were top-notch – friendly, professional, and dealt with some unexpected issues without missing a beat! Plus, they were dog lovers and made friends with my best buddy Highly recommended!

K. Kitten

Trustworthy, fair and will advocate for their clients. Whether it is maintenance or replacement DNI is wonderful. As a small business, the options are limited and expensive for replacing a unit that is original to the building. Chris L. worked exceptionally hard to ensure that our needs were met, ultimately finding the most cost effective solution.

M. Southworth

DNI Heating got out to my house, assessed the problem and installed a new furnace for us within hours on a Friday afternoon. We did not have to worry about the 0 degree temperatures coming in that weekend. The service was great from the minute I called to helping us register our furnace.
