Signs Your Plumbing Needs Replacement or Repairs & How Arctic Chain Plumbing & Heating Can Help, Anchorage, Alaska

For over 40 years, Arctic Chain Plumbing & Heating has been Anchorage, AK’s most professional and reliable plumbing contractor. Whether you need emergency plumbing, heating repair, or a new boiler, you can count on Arctic Chain Plumbing & Heating to make all installations and repairs run smoothly and swiftly.

If you want to know whether or not your plumbing needs to be fixed or repaired, there are plenty of warning signs to mindful of. Here are some of the most common:

  • Low Water Pressure: When you turn on your faucet or shower, there should be a steady stream of water. If you get low pressure, a slow drip, or no water at all, then there is definitely a problem. You can check to make sure the shower or faucet head is not clogged by tying a plastic bag full of vinegar over the head or faucet for a few hours. If that does not solve the problem, then call professional plumbing contractors for assistance.
  • Changes In Water Color: Water should be clear when it runs out of your pipes. If you see another color, then a repair may be in order. White or cloudy water means there is air in your pipes while brown, red, or yellow water indicates rust. Blue or green water means that the copper plumbing is in the process of erosion. Call the professionals immediately if you notice any of these changes in the water’s color.
  • Water Does Not Stay Hot: Hot water tanks have a maximum capacity, so it is not uncommon to have to wait for more water to heat up if you use too much too quickly. However, if the water runs cold within just a couple minutes of turning it on first thing in the morning, this is a problem for the plumbing professionals.

The plumbing contractors at Arctic Chain Plumbing & Heating take great pride in their friendly customer service and affordable pricing. Call them at (907) 344-2060 to schedule an appointment, and visit them online to learn more about their services.
