The following is a list of products we provide and service:
Water heaters are used to provide ready and ample hot water. They consist of an energy source to heat the water, a water source, valves, pipes and in some cases, vents. Water heaters can either utilize a tank for storage or be tankless.
A water conditioning or softening system reduces dissolved minerals found in treated drinking and well water. By installing and maintaining a water conditioning/softening system, you can reduce the contaminants that are naturally found in water extracted from the earth or captured from the sky.
Drains and Drain Cleaning
Drains are exit points from the home that deliver used materials to a sanitary sewer or septic system.
A sink, or basin, is a bowl-shaped fixture that is used for washing hands or small objects. Sinks can also include a disposal system for food waste.
Toilets are a plumbing fixture and disposal system primarily intended for the disposal of solid and liquid bodily wastes.
Faucets are a plumbing fixture that can provide cold and hot water for use in the kitchen, bath, laundry and outdoor purposes.
Pumps are devices used to move fluids, such as gases, liquids or slurries. A pump displaces a volume by physical or mechanical action, causing a flow. Pumps generally fall into two major groups: positive displacement pumps and rotodynamic pumps and their names describe the method in which they move a fluid.
Tubs and showers are containment areas, usually found in a bathroom or utility room, used for washing individuals or objects. They are characterized by an overhead nozzle that sprays water down and combined with a drainage system to eliminate the excess water.
Garbage disposals, food waste disposers or waste disposal units are devices, usually electrically-powered, installed under a kitchen sink between the sink’s drain and the trap which shreds food waste into pieces small enough to pass through plumbing.
Pipes and Sewers
Two of the primary piping systems in your home involve water pipes that bring water into the house and sewer lines that remove wastewater. Both are subject to damage and leaks, and should be maintained in a proper manner to ensure optimum operation.
