Garbage Disposals

Bonanza Plumbing warranty does not cover jams caused by foreign objects.


Drain Care

To remove build up, (soaps, grease, and other organic matter), along the length of pipes that cause slow drains and result in clogs, only use environmentally biodegradable plumbing cleaners (such as Drain Care by Enforcer) which are safe for all plumbing, including PVC, brass, and gold plated fixtures.

Drain Odor

When water stands in the trap for long periods, or is seldom or infrequently used, an unpleasant odor can be emitted. Running fresh water down the drain monthly will eliminate this odor.

Finish Discoloration

Less durable than chrome, decorator finishes (polished brass, brushed nickel, oil rubbed bronze, etc.) are protected with a light lacquer type finish and should be cleaned using a soft cloth and mild solution of warm water and soap or the manufacturer’s recommended cleaner. (See product manual) detergents or other abrasive materials will ruin decorator finishes.

Low Water Pressure

a. Shower Heads: In compliance with the State of California water conservation rules and regulations, the aerator (screen on the end of your faucets) and shower heads are of the water saving variety. Due to the flow restrictors, fewer gallons per minute of water flow from the fixture and in some cases it may take a little longer for water to reach the fixtures.
b. Toilets: In compliance with the State of California water conservation rules and regulations, most toilets are of the water saving variety and in some cases flush slower or less thorough.

NOTE: by law, Bonanza Plumbing technicians are not allowed to remove water saving devices.
