Why is my drain clogged? For the most part, kitchen drains clog because of grease or old rusted piping that is almost impossible to clear. Bathroom drains tend to clog because of hair buildup, and oil residue from soaps and shampoos. Many treat them with drain cleaner but sometimes make the situation worse. The best thing to do is call a professional. Our technicians have equipment that is not sold at your everyday super store and we get the job done correctly the first time around.

Why is my water heater leaking? A leaking water heater is very normal and will happen to everyone at a certain time. This is normally due to normal wear and tear and there is no repair for it. Once you have a leaking water heater, call Fly Plumbing for a replacement quote.

What is a modification? A modification is something that needs to be done to your fixture or water heater in order for it to be up to code. Usually, the price of modifications is given with the price of the job.

Is it a big deal if my toilet runs non-stop? Leaky toilets can add hundreds of dollars every year onto your water bill. A toilet that runs non-stop indicates that some part of the mechanism is faulty.

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 Disposal
