Bay Area Weekend Plumber

Weekend Plumber? Tricks of the Trade from Your Bay Area Plumbing Contractor

Tags : 

As a Bay Area plumbing contractor, we give thumbs up to those that want to roll up their sleeves and be a weekend plumber.  We get called all the time to repair what hubby or someone around the house tried to fix, but we also respect that you’re willing to do it yourself.  Here are a few tips to help you be the weekend plumber hero.

Weekend Plumber Tips and Tricks!

Emergency Plumbing Contractor Clogged Sink

Clogged Sink

Before going out and renting a drain snake, give your wet/dry shop vac a try.  Use its suction power to pull hair or gunk out of a clogged sink.  Many solutions are also available in the hardware store, that will help you unclog the sink quickly by breaking down the gunk down the drain, but a shop vac should make it even better.

If the problem persists, it could be a much deeper problem and you need a plumbing contractor at that point.  Give our Bay Area plumbing crew a call, we’re here to help, when you DIY methods have failed.

 


Leaking faucet emergency plumberLeaky Faucet (drip, drip)

Drives you crazy doesn’t it?  Most common leaky faucets are caused by deterioration of the seal.  Over time, the seal breaks down and must be replaced.  Your local hardware store can sell you a replacement seal.

Besides the faucet leaking, how about that toilet that won’t stop running!  That is probably the worst because with the sound of a running toilet, all you hear is your money going down the drain.  You’re paying for all that wasted water.

Now, we know the first thing you want to do is walk up to the toilet and jiggle that handle!  May work, but how often do you actually plan on doing that?  Stop jiggling and replace the flapper inside the toilet.  It’s an easy fix and commonly supplied at your local hardware store.


Stinky Dishwasher DIY tipStinky Dishwasher

Got vinegar?  Clean the seals around your dishwasher using a brush and hot soapy water.  The scum that builds up around the seals can get pretty stinky.  Once you’re done, run the dishwasher at the hottest setting with vinegar inside, that should clear it up pretty quickly!

We just have to mention that as a trusted plumbing contractor in the Bay Area, residential plumbing is a division within our operation.

We are the Bay Area #1 choice for heavy construction, underground construction, engineering, and drilling for residential, commercial and municipal clients throughout the Bay Area.

Plumbing Inspection Before Buying a Home

Tags : 

Are you buying a home and worried about plumbing problems? You should perform an inspection that will put your mind at ease.  Besides structural inspections, a plumbing inspection is also something to consider.

Nothing compares to the joy of home ownership, especially for first time buyers.  Preparing to purchase your dream home involves much more than liking the floor plan, there’s a lot more to consider.

Moving Expenses

Besides the purchase price of a home, you’ll want to consider all the expenses and fees relating to moving, time off from work, trucking, moving company if you’re not doing it yourself and the purchase of furniture if your current furniture doesn’t look good in the new house.

Repair Costs

Although home inspections are performed, there are unplanned repairs that come up.  Whether your home is new or old, plumbing issues tend to arise at any time.

Most common plumbing problems are related to hardware and connections, leaks in various areas, and hot water heaters that stop functioning shortly after moving in.

Make sure you save extra cushion money for these unplanned repair costs.

Regular Plumbing Maintenance 

Stay consistent in maintaining your home plumbing, implementing regular inspection and maintenance can prove to be a huge cost savings over time.

Plumbing Inspection

Keeping an eye on your plumbing hardware will help you avoid larger plumbing emergencies.  

While you may be in awww of the new home, before you purchase one, take a closer look at the hardware in kitchens and bathrooms or wherever you see a connection.

Each home has a variety of different water sources in its design. These are the locations where problems are likely to arise.

  • Faucets
  • Shower Heads
  • Pipes
  • Connections

Our Bay Area plumbers have assisted many homeowners by inspecting a home before purchase.  This will ease your mind during the purchase, and help you rest easy without any worries.

Investigate Leaks Early

Reports by the Environmental Protection Agency have revealed that the average household leak can result in the loss of 10,000 gallons of water.

Often these leaks occur in places that homeowners are unaware of. Basements, for example can leak for quite some time without being spotted.

If you are aware of a leak it is important to do a thorough investigation. Finding the source of the leak is the only way to fix the problem.  Our professional plumbing company offers plumbing video camera inspections, and advanced leak detection to help you find the problem quick.

When standing water is allowed to remain in place, additional damage can occur to the surrounding areas, floors, walls, etc…  The earlier you detect and repair plumbing problems, the less costly it will be.

If you’re looking to purchase a home, rely on our Bay Area residential plumbing services to help you make a decision prior to purchase.  

Pride of home-ownership comes with buying your dream home without the hassle of plumbing problems and additional unplanned costs.  View a list of our Bay Area plumbing service areas, we look forward to helping you when you need us.
