Have You Taken Any COVID-19 Precautions?

We have. Our team is dedicated to stopping the spread of this terrible disease by ensuring that both our customers and our employees remain safe and secure. We try to minimize face-to-face interaction and keep a safe six-foot social distance throughout all service calls. Our team members practice good hygiene, and we’ve done everything we can to limit accidental exposure by closing our office to outside visitors and asking customers to please inform us ahead of time if anyone in the home isn’t feeling well before we arrive for your appointment.

Do You Fix Water Heaters/Faucets/Toilets/Any Other Plumbing Fixture?

Yes! We proudly service all aspects of your plumbing system, from your most common and routine fixtures to the intricate and detailed components that you don’t often think about like water and drain lines. We offer drain cleaning, whole-home repipes, and everything in between. When we say we’re a full-service plumbing company, we mean it.

What Should I Expect From My Plumbing Service Visit?

Your plumbing service appointment with us is designed to be as stress-free and straightforward as possible. When we quote you an arrival time, we do everything we can to show up on-time and ready to work. We have the tools we believe we will need to get your job done, and the parts and components needed to handle most routine fixes on the spot. Our service begins with an inspection and diagnostic, which is a vital step to help us make sure we’re fixing the actual source of your problem rather than just treating the symptoms. We also keep you informed every step of the way and will walk you through the steps we advise you to take.

What Is That White Gunk All Over My Faucets & Fixtures?

If your faucets and other water-reliant fixtures all have a white, chalky gunk that seems to build up around the nozzle, then you probably have a condition known as hard water. This is extremely common, and that white gunk, known as limescale, is actually composed of a combination of calcium and magnesium, among other minerals. There are several ways you can get rid of this naturally, so we recommend doing a few internet searches for how to do so.

Likewise, investing in a whole-home water filtration system will help you remove these minerals before they enter your home, thus giving you pure water from every tap and every fixture across your property.

Do You Work with Copper/PEX/Iron/Steel Pipes?

We work with all types of plumbing lines, including all types of metals, plastics, and more. Many older homes still rely on galvanized steel or another form of plumbing that’s expensive and corrosion-prone, so we also offer whole-home repipes. As for what we advise replacing these pipes with, we recommend either a corrosion-resistant metal like copper that will last 50 years or more, or a durable, affordable plastic like PEX for those who are on a tighter budget.
