Reliable Ventura Plumber
Having a local plumbing company that you can rely on is important for any commercial or residential plumbing needs. No matter what type of plumbing services you need, be it basic toilet repair or a major pipe installation, you want to be sure that you’re in the hands of experienced and reliable professionals. Hansen’s Plumbing provides a variety of services, a few to name are installation, maintenance repair and emergency services. To find a plumber you can trust, keep in mind the following tips to find a reliable Ventura plumber in your area.
Choose a qualified and experienced plumbing company
The most important part of choosing a plumbing company is finding one that can perform commercial and residential services and who can be reliable. Commercial plumbing may require different standards and may have different regulations than residential. So, here’s a win-win situation. Hansen’s Plumbing does both! Reliability includes the ability to call your plumbers whenever you need them, so look for companies that offer 24/7-hour services.
See Past Projects
If you’re planning a bathroom remodeling or similar project, ask the plumbing company to provide examples of their past work. If they’re hesitant to show you any examples, it may mean their work doesn’t actually live up their claims. A plumber should be someone you can trust. By taking the time to vet your options, you’ll be more likely to find one you’re comfortable with.
Research Their History
Find out how long your plumber has been in business, and ask if they have any testimonials from former clients they’d be willing to share. A company that has remained in business for a long time probably delivers on their promises. If they do have a good reputation among their former clients, they’ll be eager to prove it with statements from past customers.
Price Estimate and Compare Time Frames
When researching plumbers in Ventura County, be careful if a price estimate sounds too good to be true. Although you should consider your budget when choosing who to hire, plumbers who estimates are remarkable lower than those of their competitors may have considerable hidden costs. You don’t want to hire a plumbing company who will draw out the project, or you don’t want someone who’ll rush through it and cut corners. Make sure you do your research before hiring a reliable plumber.

Plumbers can help with all plumbing repair problems big or small, but it costs money to have us come to your home. Many times, small issues can be taken care of by the homeowner and you can save calling the plumber for major emergencies. When there is a small problem, grab your wrench and plunger and get ready to tackle it all on your own.
Every good plumber has a toolkit, and so should every DIY plumber. It’s important to have a toolkit for plumbing that is separate from your primary toolkit. These tools will get down and dirty, so it’s best to just keep them together. You need two plungers: one for the sink and one for the toilet… don’t use the same one on both… ick. You’ll need an adjustable wrench, screwdriver, pliers, utility knife, plumbing tape and a caulking gun. With these tools, you’re ready to tackle almost any plumbing problem thrown at you.
Whether it’s a toilet, sink or bathtub, clogged drains can be a major pain. Many times, the culprit isn’t a children’s toy lodged in toilet or tree root cutting through the pipe. It’s more mundane such as food and grease in the sinks, hair in the bathtub and…poo…in the toilet. The good news is you can take care of these without call the plumber. Grab your trusty plunger and place it over the drain. It’s important that the plunger has a good seal, so when you press down on the plunger, the air rushes into the drain and not out the sides. Forcefully press down on the plunger repeatedly until the clog is cleared.
A running toilet is most likely caused by a stop valve or plug in the assembly inside the toilet tank. Open the back of the toilet and look to see the plug has a good seal or if the floater is too high and causing the plug to not cover the hole. You might be able to fix temporarily by jiggling the handle, but replacing the assembly is easy and inexpensive. If you have a leaky toilet, then you need to find out where the leak is occurring. If it’s a crack in the porcelain, then you might be able to caulk it. If it’s coming from under the toilet, then you’ll have to unscrew the main seat, empty out the water and lift it up to see the wax ring. The seal is likely broken, and you’ll need a new wax ring.
