While tankless water heaters aren’t for everyone, they are a great option for many households. Tankless units cost more upfront but can save you money over time in lower energy bills. They also last longer than conventional tank hot water heaters and provide no wait time for hot water. However, one disadvantage of tankless units is that they can be “output challenged.” In other words, if you need to shower and have a load of laundry in at the same time, a tankless unit might not be the best option. However, the advantages often outweigh the disadvantages for many homeowners.
If your home is 50 years or older and has old galvanized steel piping that’s never been replaced, then there’s a good chance you need repiping. Galvanized steel piping was the popular material used in the 60s to replace lead piping. If your steel pipes have never been replaced, you’ll likely have lower water pressure, brown or reddish hued water, and frequent pipe leaks.
The most common signs you have a hidden water leak include fluctuating water meter despite no change in usage, higher water bills, discolored or wet flooring and walls, and cracks in your foundation. If you suspect a water leak on your property, give us a call for fast, accurate diagnosis and repair.
The first tool to reach for when you’re dealing with a drain clog is a plunger. This handy tool clears simple clogs from sinks, tubs and toilets. However, if the clog is further down the pipe, a plumber’s snake or auger can be used to successfully clear the blockage. In some cases, hydrojetting is used when there is a stoppage in the main sewer or drain line that has been building up for many years. If your drain stoppage can’t be cleared from a simple plunging job, don’t turn to liquid drain cleaners as they can do more harm than good. Instead, call a licensed plumber for safe, long-lasting solutions.
