FAQ’s

Can I clear a clogged drain myself?
If you try to clear a drain yourself, always use a plunger. Most drain cleaners don’t work. If you try a drain cleaner and then call a plumber, please let him know. These chemicals can be a hazard to you and the plumber.

My floor drain has suddenly backed up into my basement. Is this something you can clear?
If you have raw sewage coming from a floor drain (i.e. bits of toilet paper and other waste) and you are in the Metropolitan Sewer District service area, call them at 513-352-4900 and they will advise how to proceed. For other backups, call us.

I have a sewer gas odor in my house. What is it from?
Sewer gas often comes from plumbing fixtures or drains that are not used very often. When the water in these traps evaporates, the sewer gas escapes into your house. To help determine if this is the problem, pour a bucket of water into all of your drains (including basement floor drains). The odor should go away within a short time. If the odor remains, call us to check the problem. It could be a drain that needs to be cleared, or something more serious, like a toilet seal that has broken, or a cracked vent pipe.

I have low water pressure in my home. 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.

I think my toilet is leaking. Is there a test I can do to confirm this?
Put a few drops of food coloring in the toilet tank. Wait a few minutes and then check the toilet bowl. If you see that your bowl has the same color, then you have a leak. The scary part is this can waste hundreds of gallons of water each month. Call us to repair it.

Can 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. We can usually un-jam a disposal. If we can’t, then the unit will probably need to be replaced.

What is Instant Hot Water? How does it save me money?
Instant Hot Water is a system that circulates hot water in your home. When you open a fixture the warm water is there. There is no need to wait for hot water. Did you know that hot water re circulation systems save water, energy and money – the average family of four wastes up to 17,000 gallons of water per year just waiting for hot water to arrive? A hot water re circulation system eliminates waste and provides the convenience of instant hot water, and the under-the-sink retrofit systems are designed for existing homes.

I have low water pressure in my home. 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. 

Conventional Water Heaters vs. Tankless Water Heaters.
Conventional water heaters are by far the most common type of water heater in the U.S. today. They range in size from 20 to 120 gallons and are fueled by electricity, natural gas, propane, or oil. Called ‘storage’ units, these water heaters transfer heat from a burner or coil to water in an insulated tank. The down side to a conventional water heater is that energy is consumed even when no hot water is being used. 
Tankless water heaters do not contain a storage tank like conventional water heaters. A gas burner or electric element heats the water only when there is a demand for hot water.

Our dishwasher does not drain completely. What is the problem?
Dishwashers are to leave some water in the bottom of the unit at the end of each cycle. This is to keep the heating element from burning up. However, if the dishwasher does not empty at all, you’ve got a problem.

I have used Holtmeier Plumbing for a number of years now, and I can't imagine getting better service from another Cincinnati plumbing company. Holtmeier Plumbing has responded to more weekend emergencies than I'd like to admit. Nowadays it's hard to find Cincinnati plumbers that take pride in their work like these guys do. Not only do they take pride in their work but in their appearance, which I know may not be important to many, but I think it's an indication of the quality work they do. I would recommend them to anybody looking for a fair, timely, and just all around good Cincinnati plumber.
