Plumbing Tips & FAQ

Can I get plumbing service today?

My sewer line is clogged. Can Jolly Plumbing unclog the sewer line and, if it is broken, can Jolly Plumbing repair it?

Yes and Yes! One of Jolly Plumbing’s specialties is Sewer Repair. Jolly Plumbing is equipped with the most modern sewer cleaning and repair equipment available. We can unclog the drain with our electric sewer machines or with our high tech water jet machines. If the line is broken we can use our sewer camera and underground locating equipment to identify the source of the problem, the location, and depth of the broken sewer line. After locating the problem our experienced excavation department is equipped with backhoes and mini-excavators to make the most difficult of repairs.

If my water heater is leaking, does that mean I need a new one?

Probably so. However, Jolly Plumbing plumbers will come to your Northern Kentucky or Cincinnati home or business at no cost and evaluate the problem. We will then give you an estimate to repair or replace the water heater, depending on the evaluation.

How can I tell if my water heater is gas or electric?

A gas water heater has an exhaust vent coming from the top of the water heater and a gas line entering near the bottom of the water heater. An electric water heater has an electric wire entering the top of the water heater.

How often should my septic tank be pumped?

The septic tank should be pumped every 4 to 5 years.

What does it mean if water backs up in bathtub when I flush my toilet?

When water backs up from your toilet into any of your other bathroom fixtures it means that your main sewer line is clogged.  Jolly Plumbing is equipped to handle any type of drain or sewer clog.

Does a flush really beat a full house?

Only in the plumbing business does a flush beat a full house. This strategy will lose you money at the poker table.

What is the purpose of a backflow preventer?

A backflow preventer prevents contaminated water from back flowing into the domestic water system. Backflow preventers must be tested annually to insure they are working properly. Jolly Plumbing has licensed technicians and plumbers trained to test, repair, or install backflow preventers.

What could cause my water bill to be so high?

The most common causes of high water bills are running toilets or dripping faucets. These are simple inexpensive problems to solve. However, it is possible that your main water line could be leaking between the house and the street. Jolly Plumbing is equipped to locate the leak in the pipe, excavate as required, and make the necessary repairs.

What could be causing the loud, knocking noise in my pipes?

A knocking noise in your piping system is generally caused by a loose washer in a faucet or by a faulty toilet ballcock assembly. Extreme pressure changes in the water supply can also cause a hammering noise. Jolly plumbing’s service trucks are stocked with the necessary repair parts to resolve both of these problems.
