How to Tell When You Need Emergency Plumbing Services

June 18th, 2018

bad-plumbing-leakWe all want to be proactive in life as opposed to reactive. In some cases, however, that’s just not possible.

The Importance of the Anode Rod to Water Heaters

April 30th, 2018

water-heater-repairYour water heater is one of the most important components in your home: providing safe hot water for cooking, cleaning and bathing. Most water heaters do their jobs quietly and without a fuss, which means that problems can creep up on you without noticing. This is compounded by the fact that most water heaters sit in out-of-the-way parts of your house, and don’t receive much attention so long as they do their job. Because of that, by the time you notice that something is wrong, the situation may be much worse than it appears

In particular, the anode rod is a key part of keeping your water heater functional. It prevents rust in the tank, but it needs to be replaced every two or three years. Otherwise, your water heater can quietly fall apart without you ever realizing it. Here’s a quick breakdown of why the anode rod is so important. Continue Reading

Hard Water Is a Serious Plumbing Problem

April 2nd, 2018

hard-water-showerHere in Arizona, homeowners are often spared some of the plumbing problems that afflict homes back east. Our winters are fairly mild, for example, which means we don’t have to deal with issues like frozen pipes or burst pipes very often.

That said, desert communities like ours have lingering issues with hard water, which isn’t usually treated by municipal water systems. And while not actively harmful, it can cause a great deal of plumbing damage if you let it. The good news is that a trained plumber can help you get ahead of the problem and stop it before it does anything to impede your plumbing. Continue Reading
