Monday, July 8th, 2019

natural-burnersYou may think of plumbers as only working on the pipes that carry freshwater or wastewater around a house, as well as the appliances and drains connected to those pipes.

How Corrosion Can Occur in Your Pipes

Monday, June 24th, 2019

corroded-pipesCorrosion is one of the worst enemies a home’s plumbing system can face. The word corrosion comes from the Latin word “to chew,” and it’s appropriate. Corrosion chews into the metal of pipes and eats it away. The metal weakens to the point where leaks begin, breaks occur, and eventually, the pipes fail completely. Corrosion in freshwater pipes can also lead to toxins entering the water.

Advances in piping materials have made corrosion less of a problem than it once was, but it is still a major issue you might have to deal with in your home’s plumbing in Sun City, AZ at some point. If you live in a house with old plumbing pipes (earlier than 1970), the chance of corrosion is even higher. (more…)

Video Pipe Inspection Saves the Day

Monday, March 18th, 2019

video-inspectionBack in the day, plumbing was performed with a lot of listening, intuition, and even guesswork. The tools we have today simply didn’t exist back then, forcing plumbers to work with what they had.

Gas Line Services (And Why They Require an Expert)

Monday, March 4th, 2019

Plus, natural gas is distributed from our own soil, reducing our dependence on global supplies of oil.

With that being said, here are a few commercial plumbing services that require the skills of a commercial plumber in Phoenix.
