Fixing a Running Toilet

June 26th, 2017

toilet-open-buttonWe’ve heard the old joke many a time: “Is your toilet running? Then you better go catch it!” It’s a classic, but it’s worth noting that a running toilet can be a serious issue (not that we’re adverse to a bit of toilet humor every now and then). In fact, according to the EPA’s WaterSense resource pages, a running toilet could potentially leak about 200 gallons of water a day! Think about how many dozens of showers, laundry loads, or dishwasher cycles that could have been.

We think it’s important to fix a running toilet as soon as you can in order to protect resources and keep your monthly water bills low. The good news is that it may not be difficult to do! You simply need the right tools and supplies from a local hardware store in many cases. But first, you should be sure a leaky toilet is really your issue.

Will Pipe Relining Stand the Test of Time?

June 12th, 2017

Inside-Tunnel-large-pipeGot older pipes in need of replacement? Many people initially assume that this process will be daunting. In the past, broken pipes needed to be completely replaced. Technicians had to dig a trench in the yard that stretched from one end to the other, leaving a mess behind, tearing up your beloved landscaping, and taking a lot of your time.

Some plumbers still elect to do it the old way. But that’s because they likely do not have the equipment to do a trenchless pipe relining. This service allows us to skip the trench in favor of digging only one hole in your yard! Today, we’re here to answer a question we hear a lot: will this work as well as pipe replacement?

What Is Pipe Relining?

May 15th, 2017

Inside-Tunnel-large-pipeLet’s say you’ve recently been told that your home’s drain pipes are in jeopardy. Many of the pipes are underneath your property in places where, to access the entire length of the pipe, a plumber would normally need to dig up stretches of your yard in order to access them. That means you can lose parts of your landscaping, driveway, sidewalks, and more.

Pipe relining helps to alleviate this stress. With this process, technicians do not actually need to do such an extreme level of digging. Also known as trenchless pipe relining, this professional service eliminates trenches in favor of just one or two holes in your yard—or none at all.

Why Tankless Water Heaters Need Maintenance Too

April 17th, 2017

tankless-water-heaterTank water heaters are large, noticeable, and often noisy. This is the conventional water heater found in most homes, so many people realize that a tank water heater may need maintenance from time to time and remember to schedule service. Scaling can have a major effect on a water heater, allowing for a mineral buildup that clangs around noisily in the tank and causes problems with pressure, temperature, and potential corrosion. Tank water heaters may need flushing sometimes to offset this effect.

What many people don’t realize is that tankless water heaters need maintenance as well. And much of the maintenance completed for tank water heaters is similar to the maintenance performed on tanks. For more information, or to schedule service for your system, give us a call!

The Sewer Lateral Is the Homeowner’s Responsibility: What You Should Know

March 6th, 2017

ground-sewer-pipeAll of the drains in your home have to lead somewhere. And unless you have a septic tank on your property, the sewer line leads out to the sewer main that services the city. The sewer main is at the end of your property, under the street in most cases.
