Repairing/Servicing/Replacing Plumbing Fixtures and Pipes: Whenever possible, we try to repair any problems with garbage disposals, dishwasher and icemaker supply and waste lines, kitchen and lavatory sinks, all faucets, toilets, urinals, shower pans, hose bibs, washer boxes, hot and cold water lines, all waste lines, etc. We also replace these items if they cannot be repaired.
Remodel Kitchens, Bathrooms, etc.: During a remodel job, we will work with the customer/contractor through all phases of the job.
Slab Leaks: A slab leak occurs when hot or cold water pipes beneath the home start leaking. The pipes can start leaking for many reasons - the pipes are old, the chemistry of the water supply, faulty installation, etc. When a slab leak occurs, we locate the leaking pipe using leak detection. Then access to the pipe is made through the floor to repair the pipe. When the repair is not feasible due to being located beneath a cabinet or tub, we can re-route the plumbing or re-pipe the house.
Re-pipes: People usually re-pipe their homes for one of the following reasons: low water pressure, older pipes leaking, and repeated slab leaks. We run pipes in accessible areas: attics, crawl spaces, walls, etc. We insulate all pipes exposed to extreme temperatures. During a re-pipe, the homeowner is usually not left without water for any substantial period. We finish most re-pipes within two days. We guarantee the re-pipes for one full year on the parts and labor.
Water Heaters: If your water heater is over five or six years old, it is probably out of warranty. After ten years, it is on borrowed time. Many older water heaters are not energy efficient. Since water heating is the second largest energy user next to heating and cooling, an energy efficient model can save you money every month on your fuel bills. We install all sizes of residential and commercial, natural gas and electric water heaters.
Backflow Preventors: Many municipalities are requiring backflow preventors (backflows) to keep the water supply clean. We can install and service backflows. After a backflow has been installed, it must be inspected to make sure it is functioning properly and then it must be re-inspected annually. We are licensed to certify backflows.
Camera: Many times we need to know where a problem lies within a line. To save wasted labor, time and disturbance to the area we can send a camera through the lines. This helps pinpoint the problem, saving unnecessary digging/jackhammering.
Jetting: Commercial properties tend to get buildup in the sewer lines due to the large volume of raw sewage. To help alleviate any problems with stoppages from blocked lines, we can use a high-pressure jetter to flush the system on a regular basis. This is especially beneficial for condominiums and apartments to keep the sewer lines cleaner.
