When you’re told that a plumbing company offers emergency services, what do you think of? You might assume that the only time you should dial that emergency phone number is when there’s an absolute disaster of catastrophic proportions: a steadily flooding basement, a bathtub overflowing on the second floor, poisonous snakes shooting out of your toilet… The works.
In reality, there are plenty of plumbing emergencies that are simply a combination of a small problem happening at the wrong time. Calling in for a plumbing emergency isn’t like calling into 911, so there’s a bit more leeway in what’s considered an emergency. In this post, we’ll go over the types of plumbing problems that require emergency attention.

“It’s not about the tools, it’s about the people using the tools,” goes one variation of the old saying. But at the same time, which plumber are you going to hire: One with nothing but a plunger and a monkey wrench, or one with the best in modern plumbing technology?

Below, we’ve listed a few benefits to having a water treatment system that will seriously change your quality of life (and even save you money).

Out of sight, out of mind. That’s usually how we think of water and other waste as it goes down the drain.
