Plumbing Emergencies To Watch Out For

When a plumbing disaster strikes, don't panic and stay informed.  Unfortunately, plumbing emergencies are more common than most of us think, and that can be distressing for homeowners, especially those of us who are less prepared than we'd like to be. However, knowing about 2 of the most common emergencies can help you to take action should the time come. Here's what you should look out for:  Sump Pump Failure  A damaged sump pump can really put a damper on your day (no pun intended).

What is Plumbing Excavation?

We're moving the Earth and tackling your exterior plumbing needs!

Should You Repair or Replace Your Laundry Faucet?

Leaky water faucets may require an experienced plumber.  Sometimes, it can be hard to tell if your faucet needs attention, and this is especially the case with laundry faucets, which are built differently than the average system. You may be wondering if it's appropriate to repair or replace the unit; where's the line, and when should you call in a professional? Take a look below as we expose two areas of evaluation: Water pressure When water releases, does it come out slow and weak? Or does it shoot out with high pressure? Whatever the case, neither are good scenarios. Abnormal water pressure can have many causes and is not always a faucet issue. You'll first want to decipher the cause. Doe the pipes need tightening? Do you need to check your pressure regulator? If you evaluate these concerns and the results are still unsatisfactory, you may need a plumber to address seam and fixture issues.
