Putting too much food into the disposal at one time can cause it to overheat. Most disposals have a fail-safe switch. When it overheats, the switch will cut the disposal off.
Even if you use your disposal properly, over time, you can begin to experience these common problems:
If you experience any of these problems, then it’s time to consider whether to repair or replace the disposal. Once a disposal has been in use for about 8 years, problems can begin to occur and replacing the unit might be less expensive than repairing it repeatedly. Newer units may need a simple repair, such as replacing a hose or a seal.
Gas stoves, ovens, and dryers need consistent maintenance and inspections to ensure they are operating safely. If you have a gas furnace or water heater, you also need to have these appliances inspected on an annual basis. Dependable Service can do that for you. We recommend calling us if:
Don't try to do it yourself. Let our team handle your gas line needs for you.
Could you have a leak?
If so, get out of your home or business, and call us immediately for help. Dependable Service offers 24-hour, emergency help. Call 843-353-0461 for immediate help.
There are a variety of ways to detect gas leaks, including:
Not all gas leaks are obvious. Two more ways check for these leaks are using an electronic gas detector or the bubble test. Gas detector can be expensive and may require some special knowledge to use them. The bubble test is performed by adding liquid soap to water then rubbing the solution onto gas fittings and lines. Leaks will cause the liquid to bubble.
If you smell gas, get out and contact the fire department immediately. This is a hazard with which you do not want to mess around. If there is a gas leak, you will most definitely need a gas line repair. In addition to leaks, other causes of gas line problems may include clogged, loose, or otherwise damaged gas lines. Our experts are sure to prioritize gas line related problems in a timely manner.

If your home already has a buried gas tank, there are a few things you should consider. First, unlike newer tanks, tanks that were used up until the mid-80s were not coated. If you have one of these bare steel tanks, corrosion could be a problem, which allows gas to leak into the environment. This can create hazardous fire and explosion risks and could also contaminate ground water. Home owners with older tanks need to have the tank inspected, and if necessary removed and replaced. Failure to do so could result in fines and remediation levied by the Environmental Protection Agency to restore the health of the ground surrounding the tank.
Other problems, like poor maintenance and improper usage, could lead to leaks in USTs, so if you have not had your existing underground tank inspected, we recommend that you do that immediately.
If you have questions or concerns about your existing tank, of if you are considering a new gas tank burial, give us a call. Once of our certified technicians can perform an inspection and make recommendations for the most efficient gas tank burial options for your Myrtle Beach home or business.
Storage Tank Heaters: This is the most common style of water heater. It’s a standard cylinder that stores water which is maintained at a constant temperature. These come in different sizes, and heating capacities. One of our certified technicians can explain how to decide what size is right for your household size and water usage. There are also three types of storage tank heaters:
Tankless Heaters: Tankless heaters, also called demand heating systems, are smaller units that heat water very quickly, as it is needed so there is no need for a storage tank. Gas is the best option for tankless systems because it’s more efficient for heating water quickly. These systems offer long-term savings because there is no need to maintain a reserve of constantly heated water.
Combination Space and Water Heaters: These are whole-home systems that use heated water to help warm living spaces. Choosing this type of system could replace your furnace as well as your water heater, and will require a considerable upfront investment. However, combination systems are not well-suited to all locations.

As a general rule of thumb, the average life expectancy of a toilet is about 10 -15 years. However, the working parts of the toilet may need to be replaced sooner due to wear and tear. If the toilet is structurally sound, but you’re having problems with recurring clogs, slow or inefficient flushing, or constantly running water, then you may only need to have your toilet repaired.
However, if your toilet is nearing the 10-year mark, has visible cracks or cosmetic blemishes, or requires frequent repairs, then it could be time to consider replacing it. Not only will you solve existing problems, but you’ll also probably be able to save a considerable amount of money on your water bill. Toilets built before 1994 use an average of 3-5 gallons per flush, where today’s high-efficiency models use .8 to 1.6 gallons to efficiently clear away waste.
The licensed technicians at Dependable Service Plumbing are able to inspect your toilet and provide recommendations for repair or replacement. We have over a decade of experience servicing homes in Myrtle Beach, Pawleys Island, Conway and surrounding areas, schedule your appointment today!
Video pipe inspections are especially useful because they are precise. They remove the guesswork from plumbing without all the trenching and digging. The trained and licensed technicians at Dependable Service Plumbing can determine the cause of the problem faster making video pipe inspections even more cost-efficient.
Some benefits and advantages of solving drain clog and piping problems with video pipe inspections are:
A water filtration system works by either trapping, absorbing or altering harmful particles. The medium the water passes through is a mesh-like filter or strainer. In other cases, the filtration system takes in the contaminants via tiny pores. Each filtration comes with a rating that indicates how small the particles are that the filter takes in.
A sediment filter has fine holes that reduce particles and dirt. Generally, you'll need to change these filters once or twice per year. You may opt for an activated carbon filter, which effectively removes contaminants that have the potential to change the odor, taste or color of your tap water. This type of filter removes the chlorine and anything chlorine leaves behind. A ceramic filter eliminates sediment, parasites and bacteria. The size of the material it can filter determines the level of contaminants that remain in the water. Another option is a reverse osmosis filter, which separates particles using a barrier that only allows the water to pass through.
We use water heaters every single day. Any appliance used so frequently demands our attention plus a little TLC. It is industry standard that even well-maintained water heaters will last on average between 10 and 15 years (well-maintained tankless water heaters on average last about 5-10 years longer). Maintenance is the key to longevity.
Here are some common reasons water heaters need to be replaced:
If you suspect a water heater problem, call a licensed plumber. We will quickly get to the root of the problem and make repairs to increase water efficiency.

With South Carolina’s constantly fluctuating weather it can seem impossible to know when to winterize your home. Luckily, with weather apps and forecasts you are able to see 10 to 15 days in advance so you can determine if winterization is needed. Scheduling your service ahead of time is crucial to ensure that the professionals at Dependable Service Plumbing are able to fully protect your home.
There are several factors that determine the necessity for winterizing your home. Houses that will be left vacant for extended periods of time during the winter are strongly encouraged to winterize. Homes directly on the beach or out in the open should also factor in wind chills or prolonged cold snaps into their decision-making. Raised style beach homes with exposed exterior water pipes are especially susceptible to the harshness of winter.

“Requested an appointment online – got a call back very shortly (on the weekend!) to schedule for early next week. Tech arrived right when he was supposed to, we went over my issues, came up with a plan of attack, and he got to work. I got busy doing other things around the house, and about an hour later asked me to come check things out. Bill was very reasonable, and was written up and emailed to me while on-site. Paid with a credit card on their tablet (very cool!) and he was on his way.” –-Mike S.
