Sewer Line Backups

[ffb_param route=”o gen text”]

Raw sewage can damage property, spread disease, and ruin your day. When your sewer is acting up address it immediately before it becomes an emergency. Avoid hiring a handyman to handle the problem, qualified plumbers have a lot more experience. Don’t flush anything that isn’t human waste or thin toilet paper. If raw sewage is backing up into your home, keep family members and pets a safe distance from sewage. Ultimately, untreated sewage is a real health hazard, you need someone trained, insured, and licensed to handle the problem as soon as possible. 



Signs You Need A New Water Heater

[ffb_param route=”o gen text”]

A reliable steady supply of hot water is a necessity. It goes beyond the comfort of a hot shower or bath. Dishwashers utilize the hot water line to boost temperatures for proper sanitation. Washing machines also hook into the hot water supply for certain cleaning cycles. Unfortunately, over time hot water units wear down and ultimately break. Here are a few early warning signs to keep an eye out for before a hot water unit completely fails. 

Toilet Paper Roll

What the Bear in the Woods Won’t Tell You!

Toilet paper is big business, and huge companies compete for your dollars. It’s no wonder that companies like Charmin have “spokes bears” to get you to buy their product. Toilet paper is also one of those consumer products that most of us use and no one talks about – and certainly, not where it goes after we “go!”

However, environmental scientists are talking about toilet paper a great deal because it has become an environmental catastrophe.

Garbage Disposal

Even Garbage Disposals Need Love

This blog should start out with a complaint! We don’t have much use for the term “Garbage Disposal.” The more proper term should be “Food Disposal.” Why does that bother us? Because as plumbers you would not believe some of the things that we have seen people try to grind down into the drain pipe.

The disposal is not meant to take care of sticks, flower stems, aluminum foil, pieces of ceramic cups or most anything else that is not food. Hard, non-organic or non-food items are not meant to be put into this machine.

From time to time, we have all had the displeasure of smelling “sewer gas.” We know it when we smell it but we may not be aware of what it is, what it means and what we need to do about it – especially if we smell it in our homes or businesses.
