Let Apollo Fix Those Common Plumbing Issues in Sinks
Regardless of how well your home is maintained, plumbing problems are unavoidable and happen to all of us at one point or another. Plumbing issues impact toilets, tubs, and, most frequently, sinks in your kitchen and bathroom.
While annoying, you can easily fix the following problems by seeking professional plumbing services in Cincinnati.
Clogged drains are often a result of excess hair, toothpaste, oils, or fatty acids accumulating within the drain. Depending on the severity, water may be slow to drain or be unable to drain at all. While small blockages can usually be removed with a plunger, severe clogs often require professional services.
Clogged drains can be prevented by keeping the drain area free of debris, or by occasionally cleaning the drain with vinegar, baking soda, or boiling water.
There are several causes for a leaky faucet. Most often, they are a result of defective or worn out washers, gaskets, or o-rings, but they can also be a sign of a more serious issue that may require the entire tap system to be replaced. Ignoring leaky faucets can cause the problem to get worse and can also cause your water bill to skyrocket, so getting it repaired right away is important.
Damaged Sink Pipes
The pipes underneath your sink are often subject to damage due to the area often serving as a storage or multi-purpose space. Consequently, pipes are often knocked loose or face similar types of damage that may cause leaking. Sometimes the problem may just require the pipes to be tightened, but it’s also possible that there is a large scratch or a hole causing a serious problem.
Plumbing problems come in all shapes and sizes, and while some can easily be fixed, it’s usually best to consult with a professional before taking any actions on your own. Attempting to correct the issue independently often causes the problem to become worse.
If you’re experiencing any of these problems, call Apollo Home Heating, Cooling and Plumbing today for more information on plumbing services in Cincinnati.
"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."

"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
