Hey Bin,

If you havent done this before, then follow this, shutdown the Valve first then open the faucet from both sides upwards and downwards. If you still need more information you can possibly get all sort of problems you have at Best drain clog remover in Hawthorne, New Jersey.

Yeah, I agree with David, it actually depends on the faucet whether it has an alternator or not. Even I have also come across a similar problem once but thanks to the team of commercial plumbing service NJ who helped me fix the leak in the faucet. They save a lot of my money and time too.

Excellent question. Choosing the right Contractor is probably the most difficult part of the decision process, as you have to trust your instincts on complete strangers to work on your home. You increase your odds of a Contractor that will follow up to fix a problem by picking a Contractor that actually works out of a legitimate business  ( Brick and Mortor ) location rather than with a Contractor that operates out of their truck and or uses a PO box address. A Contractor in a brick and mortor location is easy to find and has made a long term commitment to their business.

Sounds like inadequate venting for the drain lines. Could have been build this way or maybe a clog has developed in the vent pipe. Such as birds or squrrels building a nest in the vent pipe up on the roof. You should hope that it's a clog, which can easily be removed. In order for proper vent pipes to be installed the walls will need to be opened up.

Norman, thank you so much for your question. Without having a better idea of how the vent pipe makes it to the roof (straight up or bends while making its way up) I can not accurately advise you on this. If you are in the Houston area please feel free to give us a call and we will get you set up with a free consultation. Do you have a tankless purchased or are you still looking to buy?

A great feature to have.  If you don’t have a shut off valve ask the plumber to install one.  If you leave on vacation or have a leak you can easily shut off the water to your condo. Check with the association first for the insurance Compamy also.  Billy Gavigan

I would start by performing a flow test at your shower head. Get a 5 gallon bucket and open your shower head full open and time how long it takes to fill bucket. If you fill the bucket say in 1 minute, this means you are emptying 50 gallon tank in less than 10 minutes. (Divide 50 by number of minutes) Keep in mind as you use hot water, it is replaced with cold water, so hot water temp is dropping from the moment you start. Secondly, you most likely temper your hot water with cold which then extends this time. In short this is just a guide but tells you how long it takes to empty tank. If this works out that your emptying bucket in shorter time than your shower, concider checking flow restrictor on your shower head. If this is not the case then call the installer of hot water heater.

Both of the previous are great ideas. Also consider, if it is an older valve, that the main does not close completely, for a variety of possible reasons. We see that alot in older homes. You can confirm this by checking other fausets to see if they continue to drip after you have tried the above proceedures. 

Remember if you drain the system as suggested before, to properly refill it, to get rid of the air in the system, or you could have "water hammer" issues as well.
