Kitchen Plumbing and Faucet Installation
As newer technology beefs up the average home’s kitchen faucet, installation can become tricky.
What sounds like a 15-minute project can turn into an all-day marathon without the skill and experience needed for the job.
While a properly working faucet will save you money and conserve your shared resources, a leaky faucet can unknowingly put a leak in your water bill.
Bathroom Faucets & Toilet Installation
A new toilet will instantly upgrade the look of your bathroom while increasing the value of your home.
Prevent potentially massive damage from leaks and toilet floods with a call to a Mr. Rooter licensed plumber today.
Water Heater Installation
If you’re running a faucet for an eternity to get even a drop of hot water, it is past time to replace your water heater. Water heaters usually last around a decade. If you’re experiencing inadequate hot water, loud noises from the water heater, or a leaking water heater, it’s time for a new water heater.
Hot Water Dispenser Installation
Once you see the way a hot water dispenser benefits your everyday tasks, it will become a luxury you can never live without. Hot water dispensers simplify kitchen cooking and cleaning without adding clutter to your sink space.
Yes, a water heater and a boiler are different. If your lack of heated water isn’t the cause of a faulty water heater, your boiler may be to blame. A water heater uses either gas or electricity to heat water continuously. As hot water leaves the tank, cool water comes in.
A boiler is a versatile heating system. Boilers heat water to heat a home and to provide hot water throughout a house. Modern boilers are all high efficiency.
Water Softener Installation
Hard water causes scale buildup, which can slow water flow and damage your pipes, faucets, and fixtures within a year. Scale buildup will damage pipes past the point of repair. The cost and inconvenience of replacing pipes make a water softener essential.
You’ve found the perfect washer and dryer with a great spin cycle, now it’s time to install them. Improper appliance hook-ups are a leading cause of water damage in homes. Damage that could require wall demolition. Start with an experienced plumber today so you don’t have to call one tomorrow.
Venting System Installation
A plumbing venting system regulates the air pressure in your home’s plumbing system. Also known as a plumbing air vent, this system removes gas and odors. If your venting system is not working properly, neither will your house’s drainage system. Standing water, slow drainage, or gurgling sounds may be a sign of a blocked vent.
Garbage Disposal Installation
Garbage disposals are an essential luxury to dispose of some food scraps and a lot of cleaning time. A properly installed garbage disposal will last over a decade.
Sump Pump Battery Backup System Installation
Sump pumps are installed in specially designed sump pits. A sump pump will keep your basement dry and mold-free by pumping water out of the pit and away from the home.
Backflow preventers are small fixtures with a heavy impact. Proper backflow systems involve specialized skills to install properly with strict regulations to meet.
Backflow prevention stops water contamination from entering your pipes. Backflow prevention is inexpensive insurance to keep your water clean and drinkable. Backflow preventions are made to last for more than 50 years.
Plumbing in a New Home
Knowing about the type of pipes in your home will help you as the homeowner to maintain the pipes’ quality.
How often you’re willing to replace the plumbing in your home may play into which pipes you choose for your new home.
These are the main types of plumbing in homes:
- Brass pipes
- One of the oldest pipe options, brass pipes are best used for gas.
- Galvanized steel pipes
- Galvanized steel pipes have a shorter lifespan and a heavier weight compared to other pipes; however, they are one of the most durable pipe options.
- Copper pipes
- Copper is known for its durability, heat tolerance, and long lifespan and is often found in older homes. While copper pipes costs are known to be higher, their look and longevity are worth it.
- PVC pipes
- PVC pipes will not rust or break down over time; however, these pipes cannot handle hot water supply lines. These pipes are best for sinks, toilets, and bathtubs.
- PEX pipe
- PEX pipes are flexible and easy to install and are used in many new plumbing installations.
