How Much Does a Water Leak Cost?

Monday, August 3rd, 2020

We talk about leaks often on this blog, but we rarely ever get into the specifics of how much they cost. Depending on where you live and your municipality, a water leak can cost a different amount of money. That being said, they’re always costs that can be avoided, and they tend to hurt the environment just as much as your wallet.

Summer is a time of conserving water usage. When leaks occur, there can be tens to hundreds of gallons of water in your home being wasted every day. Homeowners out there who are concerned about wasting water through their water leaks should contact a plumber in Port St. Lucie, FL.

Yes, Your Tankless Water Heater Needs Maintenance Too!

Monday, July 20th, 2020

What do you think of when someone says the word maintenance? Do you think of taking your car to the mechanic?

Why You Should Never Use Chemical Drain Cleaner

Monday, October 28th, 2019

Chemical drain cleaners are a huge concern for us. Widely available at almost every grocery store with well-funded and powerful advertisement campaigns, we’re often serving as the coroner for deceased plumbing systems after they’ve come in contact with these chemicals. As the coroner and gravedigger of so many rotted pipes, we’d really like to prevent these plumbing issues from occurring in the first place, and that starts with talking about how harmful chemical drain cleaners are.

If you’re looking to avoid expensive work on your plumbing in Port St. Lucie, FL (no offense taken, people only call the plumber when they feel like they absolutely have to) then you’re going to want to avoid chemical drain cleaners. They can destroy your plumbing, cause awful health effects, ruin your property and the environment, all while barely working as is.

If you’re still not convinced, keep reading and we’ll surely get you to think otherwise.

Quick, Catch That Toilet! It’s Running!

Monday, October 14th, 2019

No, your toilet isn’t physically running. This blog is not about to discuss whether or not your toilet has legs, but we are going to discuss the type of running that we are all familiar with when it comes to bathrooms.

A toilet is a system of valves, plugs, and water tanks, that allows stored up water to “flush” waste down the drain into the septic tank or sewer system. When one of these valves or plugs misbehaves, the water can just drain right out of your toilet’s tank into the sewer without serving its function. Not only is this extremely obnoxious (not having a functioning toilet is a nightmare), but it’s incredibly wasteful. One single day of a running toilet while you wait for a plumber can waste hundreds of gallons of water.

While we’d always recommend you call a plumber in Port St. Lucie, FL there are still some things you can try to do on your own to mitigate the damage.
