Frequently Asked Questions
Here at City Creek Plumbing, we believe that knowledge is power for our customers. We take the time to listen to your questions and provide the information you need about your project.
We encourage you to contact us whenever you have any questions or need any information. Meanwhile, these are some of the most common questions we hear from our customers. Bear in mind, these questions might not relate directly to the questions you have or the problems you’re experiencing – and the answers can’t take the place of an experienced Utah plumbing contractor. However, we’re never more than a quick phone call away.
Why am I running out of hot water so quickly now?
If you’ve started to run out of hot water before you’re done with your shower or dishes, this is a clear indication of a water heater issue. If you don’t contact a plumber quickly, you could face a tank failure and potentially damaging flooding. In many cases, our team can successfully repair your existing water heater and get the hot water flowing normally again. However, if you need a new water heater, we can assist you with both gas and electric tanks as well as tankless water heater installation in Layton and Kaysville.
Why do I have white spots and buildup on my glassware, faucets and shower doors?
White, scaly spots and buildup are a common problem faced by Utah homeowners. This occurs due to the high content of minerals – including magnesium and calcium carbonate – in the northern Utah water supply. This buildup is unsightly and difficult to clean, but it can also cause bigger problems. High mineral content in your home’s water can shorten the life of your water-using appliances such as the dishwater and washing machine. It can cause your skin to feel filmy and your hair to look dull, limp and lifeless. To overcome these minerals, you could be using twice as much shampoo and detergent as you otherwise would.
Adding a whole home water softener system is the best way to banish these annoying and potentially costly minerals. Contact us to learn more about your options for installing a water softener at your Utah home.
What can I do about the nasty taste and smell of my tap water?
If your home’s drinking water smells bad and tastes worse, consider installing a water filtration system. City Creek Plumbing can install a state-of-the-art, three-stage water filter system that delivers bottle-quality water right from your kitchen tap. Our filtration systems are a highly convenient and affordable way to get great tasting tap water in your Utah home.
I think I have a plumbing pipe leak. What should I do?
The right answer depends on how bad the leak is. If water is spewing from a pipe or fixture, find you home’s main water shutoff ASAP and cut the water flow to your house. This may be the only way to prevent serious water damage from occurring. If you have a pipe or fixture with a less serious leak, try putting a bucket, pitcher or cooking pan underneath to catch the drip. You can try turning off the valve to see if that slows or stops the leak, but you won’t be able to use the fixture until you have the problem repaired.
In either case, call us immediately to schedule your residential plumbing leak repair.
Can I add a garbage disposal to my kitchen sink?
Adding a garbage disposal is a great way to improve the efficiency of your kitchen. It’s also good for the environment in that it reduces the waste going to the local landfill. In almost every Utah home, it’s possible to add a garbage disposal when doing a kitchen remodel or sink replacement. We can also work with you to add a disposer to your existing sink. While we’re at it, talk to us about adding or replacing your dishwasher, adding an RO or water filtration system, or replacing your existing faucets.
Whatever your northern Utah kitchen plumbing installation, repair and remodeling needs might be, City Creek Plumbing can help.
Can I add a shower or second sink to my bathroom?

How can I unclog my sink drain?
