Our Handy Tips to Stop Water Contamination

Monday, March 14th, 2022

Sometimes it can be easy to forget about just how lucky we are to have clean, fresh water for our everyday activities. This water needs to be clean to a certain standardized level, because otherwise, it could lead to negative health effects and poor comfort in your home. It wasn’t until the 1960s that we realized that lead in our water could lead to huge impacts on health and behavior, which is why we all need to pay a bit more attention to the quality of our water!

That being said, not everyone can afford a water treatment system. These units are usually high-tech and don’t fit into everyone’s home improvement budget. Don’t worry, this blog post isn’t about water treatment systems, but just average solutions that a plumber in Port St. Lucie, FL can help with.

Are You Dealing With a Tree Root Invasion?

Monday, February 28th, 2022

Wow, now that sounds like a horror movie we’d like to see in theaters. Just make sure you give us the credit next time you decide to write the screenplay for the Invasion of the Tree Roots! All jokes aside, a tree root invasion is just as bad as you think it is. Trees are resilient, and while they’re beautiful and our ally in fighting climate change and keeping property pretty and pristine, they’re our enemy when it comes to our plumbing systems.

Tree roots can insidiously poke holes and rip openings in your old sewer pipes. They love all of the wastewater that would normally be sent to a water treatment plant. Also, tree roots love to expand to the point where they’re taking control of your underground property. This is a problem that requires a professional plumber in Boynton Beach, FL, and here’s why!

Don’t Insulate Your Water Heater on Your Own

Monday, February 14th, 2022

The science behind insulation is fairly simple. If you cover something with enough layers, the layers will stop the heat from escaping and allow appliances like a water heater to retain heat and stay efficient. The type of material and the composition of the coverings can also make a pretty big difference, so you’ll want to make sure you’re doing your research. The problem is, there’s a lot to research in this field. And one small issue can lead to no hot water for weeks and even an expensive problem on your hands.

We’re big proponents of homeowners getting more familiar with their plumbing technology. This is an essential part of your home, so we think it’s extremely valuable for you to know more about your water heater in Delray Beach, FL. So, let’s talk about why taking the time to insulate your water heater on your own may prove ineffective.

Well, as a team of professional plumbers in Boynton Beach, FL, we’d tell you to replace your pipes for a number of reasons. If you’re dealing with constant leaks or if your plumbing system doesn’t work as it should, then we suggest you replace your plumbing system.
