When Are Drain and Sewer Cleanings Necessary?

Monday, August 27th, 2018

logoWhen you see a faucet dripping every time you come into the bathroom or the kitchen, it is pretty clear that this faucet needs repairs, right? What about other parts of your plumbing system that may require service, though? Particularly those parts of the system that you cannot see, and which you don’t really interact with directly? There’s just no way of knowing what kind of shape they’re in, right? So you just wait until something goes wrong before scheduling service.

That’s not the way to handle such components, though, and the logic behind that approach is deeply flawed. Just because you cannot really see your drain and/or sewer lines, after all, doesn’t mean that you cannot catch problems with them early on. Let’s go back to the leaking faucet for a simple example. Even if you cannot see the faucet because it’s dark or you’re in the next room, you can hear the dripping, right? Get all of your senses involved, and you’ll be able to tell if you need drain and/or sewer cleaning in Vail, AZ.

Is It Time for Repiping?

Monday, May 21st, 2018

sunny-plumberFor a lot of people, the idea of a “home improvement” project is more aesthetic than anything else. Maybe you want to revamp your deck, or paint/side your house to make it more visually appealing. Others blend both fashion and function. Putting up new shutters, repaving an ugly, cracked, or rutted driveway, for instance. But some of the most important home improvement jobs are the ones that offer no visual benefit. Repiping a home is certainly one prime example of this.

When you hire a professional plumber in Green Valley, AZ to repipe your house, it is entirely a matter of function. It is a matter of protecting the integrity of your plumbing system, so that you can count on the reliable delivery of potable water throughout your home. It is also a matter of protecting your home from serious damage caused by damage to these pipes. This all begs the question of when you are supposed to be repiping your home, of course.
