Tips to Get Your Plumbing Through the Holidays

Monday, November 26th, 2018

drainThere is a lot to keep yourself busy with during the holiday season. Hosting your family, for instance. Making it through the experience of hosting your family, perhaps. While we totally understand the fact that this is a very busy and potentially stressful time of the year, and we really don’t want to heap anything else onto your plate, the fact remains that you do need to take some precautions when it comes to your plumbing at this time of the year.

There are a few factors at play here. First of all, you are going to be cooking and cleaning more than you probably do during the regular times of the year. Secondly, your plumbing system is simply going to be under a heavier amount of use than usual.

Prepare for Bathroom Plumbing Problems

Monday, August 20th, 2018

Plumbing-IconsDo you know why it is that you’re more likely to break a bone in your foot than, say, a bone in your leg? Well, because there are a whole lot more bones in your feet than there are in your legs. The bones are also smaller, and you are supporting your weight on your feet and balancing your entire body on top of them. Your legs do a lot work, of course, but they are bearing down on your feet as you go about your day.

The same concept can be applied to your plumbing system. Sure, there are plenty of instances in which your main water line may rupture. You’re still much more likely to encounter problems with the plumbing in your bathroom, though, because there are more pieces to fail and there is more direct interaction with those pieces than with the single big pipe bringing water into your home. When you run into bathroom plumbing problems, you need to schedule professional bathroom plumbing service in Bristol fast.

Why Might My Sump Pump Fail?

Monday, October 30th, 2017

sump-pumpWater. It makes up more than half of one’s body. It covers more than 70% of the earth’s surface. It is, without a doubt, one of the most vital elements in our lives. It can also prove extremely destructive. We’ve seen more than enough evidence of that over the course of this past summer. While hurricanes and heavy winds can obviously be devastating, water damage is not only a concern in these extreme situations. Sometimes, even “minor” flooding in one’s home can cause very serious problems.

This is why it is such a good idea to have a sump pump installed in your home. The sump pump serves one purpose and one purpose only — protecting your home and possessions from the damages that water can do. Unfortunately, the fact is that no mechanical system will ever be 100% reliable. It is possible for a sump pump to fail, and that can cause problems. Knowing what can cause a sump pump to fail is a great step toward ensuring that your home is protected. Here are some tips from our plumbers in New Haven, CT.
