Our sinks. We use them every single day of our lives. Sometimes when using them, we can encounter strange and possibly worrying issues but fear not! Most of the time these are quick and common fixes.

White Water

Milky, white water, also described as cloudy, hazy, soapy or foamy, is almost 99.9% of the time caused by the air in the water. One of water’s main properties is the ability to dissolve gases which is why when the air comes out in water, it can often cause tiny bubbles to form giving the water the appearance of a white color. To see if this is indeed from air in the water, you should fill a clear glass with water and set it aside. After a few minutes, if it is indeed white from air, the water will begin to clear from bottom to top. This is completely natural and your water is safe to use. This often happens during the spring when the air begins to warm, during a heat wave, or if any plumbing work has taken place. If you discover that your water does not clear, contact Done Plumbing & Heating for an evaluation.

Brown Water

The usual main cause of this often comes down to iron. Sometimes when your sink’s water comes out brown it is because it has too much iron in it. Iron is a common, naturally occurring metal in soil and because of this it is normally within your water in the first place. With normal water, your water provides about 5% of the iron you need to eat or drink each day. While brown sink water is not dangerous, it can be quite annoying. Excessive iron levels can reach your water in a few ways. One of the more common ways is when rust dislodges from your pipes and enters your water pipes. This usually happens when pressure in the pipes change. Usually to clear brown water, you should run cold water for about 20 minutes to clear out your system. If it remains brown, you should contact a local plumber.


While brown and white water is normally normal, if they do not clear up it can be a sign of a different cause. If your water continues to be colored, contact us today at Done Plumbing & Heating so we can find the underlying cause and get you back to your clear, delicious water today.

Let’s be honest: Nobody thinks about their plumbing and heating until there’s a problem.

What most people don’t realize is that most of those problems can be anticipated and often avoided with regular maintenance – usually at a far lower cost than a repair or replacement.

“This past week I had the need for a plumber and I reviewed the telephone book and selected from the advertisements your company to attend to the matter. The company sent Austin Steinbach to attend to and review the problem. He is a very knowledgeable young man who communicates well and does his work in a very thorough and professional manner. I was very satisfied with his service. Mr. Steinbech is a credit to your company. Very often in communities someone asks whether they are aware of a plumber or other technician that can be recommended. In this regard, I am comfortable in recommending Mr. Steinbech and your company. Thank you for the service rendered.”

“Quick & competent work done to high satisfaction. Darrell Begay provided quick service and very professional work when he came to install a new toilet seat. We had not been able to do the work ourselves, so it was a relief to have Darrell and Done Plumbing get here so quickly to take care of the task. We appreciate all Done as done for us”

When an issue arose with the clean-outs, Kieth quickly resolved it to our satisfaction & to the way he had previously described. From the estimate to the conclusion of the project we had confidence in Kieth. He is a good ambassador for your company.”

“Just a note of thanks for being the Best plumbing and heating company. I have used you often and have been impressed every time. I called for a drain cleaning and was told a technician could come the same day. He arrived an hour ealier than was quoted, was very professional and did a great job at a very reasonable price with my coupon that he honored. I would never use another company and would recommend you to anybody that needs help. The technician that did such a great job was Austin, but every technician you have sent has been the best. Thanks again for such a wonderful company”

~ Karla W Golden, CO

“It was very professional, prompt & the technician explained many things well. Very happy throughout the whole process – from the customer service rep who answered the phone this morning to the technician explaining building codes to me.
