A leaking dishwasher is a problem no one wants to come home to. When your dishwasher leaks, it can cause issues with flooding on your kitchen floor. This potentially causes damage and becomes a slip hazard. When your dishwasher is leaking, it also makes it necessary to undertake the time-consuming process of washing all dishes by hand. Finding the source and the cause of a dishwasher leak is the first step to diagnosing and fixing the leak.
The cause of your leak will determine how to fix your leaky dishwasher. At Shaw Plumbing, we are experts at diagnosing your problem. We will be able to tell you if there are faulty or worn gaskets, bad lines, or other issues causing your leak. We also will be able to advise you if the unit is worth repairing, or if you should replace it to save yourself money in the long run.
Modern-day appliances are much more advanced and energy efficient these days which is excellent. The problem is they are significantly harder to install when you compare them to older units. Older units were designed so that just about anyone could hook up their new washing machine, dishwasher, or stove. Today, there’s so many new components and federal requirements that it has become very difficult for the average homeowner to do this alone.
Many homeowners want to install their new appliances themselves so that they aren’t charged more fees, especially since appliances are expensive. Generally, they quickly find out that they are either lacking the right tools or the knowledge to complete the project properly. As a result, they either are putting their home in danger from improperly installed electrical wires or water lines, or they wind up paying even more for repairs to the new appliance they damaged.

If not functioning properly toilets can cause more problems than just water damage. Without a proper seal, sewer gases can escape from the bottom of the toilet causing bad odor, in which case it would need to be pulled and reset.
Also, if you ever notice your toilet running without being in use, you probably need a new flapper. Your water bill will increase without you knowing why. There are a couple of other things it could be, but our plumbers will make sure your toilet functions properly: giving you a proper flush, efficiently using your water, and making sure there are no leaks. Note: The chlorine in our water causes rubber parts, like flappers, to warp, and plastic parts to become brittle and in need of replacement, so that goes for chlorine tabs as well.
