The Unforeseen Costs of a Water Leak

Water leaks aren’t always how they’re depicted in television and media. We’ve all seen the old cartoons where a pipe starts gushing water and filling up the first floor of a whole home.

The Hidden Cost of a Kitchen Clog

Monday, May 24th, 2021

A kitchen clog might seem like a common occurrence, but we want you to think about this type of problem. When your kitchen sink’s drain clogs up, you could start doing things and changing your behavior in ways that cause you to spend more money.

3 Reasons You Should Never Use Drain Cleaning Chemicals

Monday, May 10th, 2021

Your drains aren’t as robust as you might think.

Think about it—no material in this world is safe from the effects of corrosion due to harsh chemicals. That’s why we think it’s so important that we make a small PSA in this blog post about the negatives that come with chemical drain cleaners. Your drains and your personal health are at risk when you use them.

We understand the drive for homeowners to find any cure for their drain clog that isn’t calling for professional plumbing in Port St. Lucie, FL, but that might be a very bad idea.

What’s Stopping Sewer Gases From Ruining Your Day?

Monday, April 26th, 2021

It’s no mystery why sewers are associated with foul odors. We see them in movies, TV shows, and we even read about them in books. While we like to think of sewer systems as completely separate from our homes, they’re really not. There are drains and other pipeline systems that lead directly into the sewer. Our home plumbing systems are like the veins that transport waste from our living spaces into sewer systems, so we need to start thinking about them as connected.

That being said, we get asked this question all the time. “Why doesn’t the sewer gas come up into my kitchen or bathroom?”

While the answer might seem simple, it’s a bit more complex and we’d like to explain why. We’re your go-to experts on all things plumbing in Port St. Lucie, FL and we’ll walk you through the magic of the P-trap!

Why Is My Drain Clogging So Much?

Monday, April 12th, 2021

A clogged drain is never something you want to deal with. While we talk often on or blog about ways to deal with a drain clog, or even ways to prevent one, we never really talk about why they’re happening so frequently. Why are your drains clogging so much?

Today, we’ll zero in on a few ways you can mitigate this problem and how you can change your mindset about drain clogs!

How You’re Supposed to Be Treated By a Plumber

Monday, December 21st, 2020

Something we don’t touch upon that often is the discourse around hiring a plumber in Boca Raton, FL. Plumbers can make homeowners feel guilty every time they show up because it seems like so many issues can be prevented. Homeowners can feel bad when they encounter a drain clog, because they might have accidentally flushed something they shouldn’t have down the drain. A plumber can amplify that feeling, and cause homeowners to resist calling for help until the very last minute.

It’s not enough to say that you shouldn’t be treated by a plumber like this. We understand that homeowners can accidentally flush paper towels down the drain, or perhaps they never learned that fats, oils, and greases shouldn’t be sent down the drain. Our job isn’t to scold you, it’s to make sure your home plumbing problem is addressed effectively and affordably. You deserve to be treated right.
