Plumbing FAQ’s

leaky faucet

  • I need a leaky faucet repaired or a clogged drain cleared. Is this what a plumber does?
    Yes! A plumber is a highly skilled worker who installs and repairs pipes and and water related fixtures, diagnoses clogged drain problems, and solves all problems related to water systems in your home. K.E. Seifert has been proudly servicing the Southern Pennsylvania and New Jersey areas for over 30 years. This means you are guaranteed a courteous, professional and friendly plumber at your door, every time!
  • How do I know if I have a broken water line outside my house?
    A broken water line out in the yard may include an excessively high water bill, puddles in your yard or the sound of running water when no faucets or appliances are using water. A K.E. Seifert plumbing specialist can “see” inside your pipes & detect unseen leaks with our leak locating technology, allowing us to pinpoint the problem without needless trial and error or destruction of working pipes. In many cases we can fix the problem right away and save you money.
  • How do I un-jam my garbage disposal?
    You may be able to insert an Allen wrench into the bottom of the disposer and “crank” it to help free up a jam. If this doesn’t work, DON’T USE IT! You could cause serious damage to the disposal motor or even your home electrical system. K.E. Seifert plumbing specialists can usually fix a jammed up garbage disposal. If we can’t, then the unit will probably need to be replaced. Our expert plumbers can give you a free estimate and quick installation to get you grinding again!
  • If I need Rooter Service, do I have to call one of those national rooter chains?
    No. We recommend that you call a qualified, trained and certified plumber. The waste lines inside and outside your home can be very delicate. In an older home, pipes wear thin from the inside out making them appear sound while they are in fact very brittle. An unqualified and unskilled rooter company could cause extensive damage to your pipes and your home. With over 30 years of experience, K.E. Seifert, inc.’s highly trained technicians take the time to properly diagnose the problem and utilize the right tools and techniques to solve the problem. Should there be an issue of a broken pipe or other unforeseen problems after we begin the job, our expert plumbers are prepared and trained to immediately take action.
  • What causes low water pressure and what can I do about it?
    There are several things that could cause low water pressure, including a partially closed or malfunctioning shut off valve, a crimped water line, or deposits that gather in older galvanized pipes. If your neighbors have strong water pressure, the problem is most likely between the water meter and your home. A qualified K.E. Seifert, Inc. plumber will be able to identify the problem and explain your options.
