Blocked Drains

 

 
Blocked drains can cause big issues. In your bathroom or kitchen a blocked drain slows your water, leaves residue behind and can lead to bigger plumbing issues. How can you tell if you have a clogged drain? If water begins to back up out of one of your sink drains, you’re finding pools of water around the drains of a shower or water drains very slowly after creating a pool, those are signs of a blocked drain. Does your toilet water bubble when you run the sink? Do your drains make gurgling noises, particularly after you’ve run your washing machine or dishwasher? You could have a blocked drain. Also watch out for pools of water by your tub or sink or the smell of rotten food coming from the area near your kitchen sink.
 

 

High-Pressure Equipment

 

 
Struggling with water pressure that’s too high or too low? In our experience one piece of plumbing equipment that is too often overlooked is a good Pressure Regulator Valve. This device is installed into your water lines to automatically regulate your water pressure. If you’re experiencing water pressure that’s too high or too low you may need to have your water pressure tested to see if you need a new Pressure Regulator Valve installed on your water lines to keep that pressure right where you want it to be.

Water pressure management works by keeping your system’s pressure at a constant, controlled level and reducing the higher pressure that comes through your water mains. This works through the use of a diaphragm that controls how much water comes through the valve, each of which has preset pressure points that open or close to increase or decrease your pressure.
 

 

Drain Camera and Locator

 

 
When investigating a plumbing issue, knowing where the problem is before digging can save money and time. Hiring a plumber who has access to and familiarity with a drain camera and locator makes servicing that much quicker and easier.
