There is one appliance in your home that receives its fair share of daily use. Yet chances its not one of the things that makes your list when you talk about remodeling or upgrading.

Its your toilet.

The life expectancy of a toilet can vary greatly, but like everything in our homes, there comes a point in time when replacing it is the better solution. How do you know if you’ve reached that point?

Cracksis it time to replace your toilet Is It Time To Replace Your Toilet?

Cracks can occur either in the tank or in the bowl. In many cases they are hard to spot. If a crack goes unnoticed, it can quickly grow and build, releasing a flood of water in a short period of time. A simple way to determine if you have a crack is to drop a few drops of food coloring in to the tank. Wait a few minutes. If the food coloring seeps into the bowl, you have a leak and it may be caused by a crack.

Age

If your home was built in the 80s or before, and the toilet has never been upgraded, you are still operating with a full flush toilet. Toilets from this era used 3.5 gallons of water or more with every flush. In 1992, the Energy Policy Act was signed into law, making 1.6 gallons per flush a maximum for all new toilets produced. With today’s technology, you can find low flow toilets at this water level and below – ever considered a dual flush toilet in your home? You may be surprised by all the options available to you.

Cost

When a toilet reaches a certain point, you may be spending more on replacement parts then you would by replacing the entire toilet. If you’ve replaced a part more than once per year, its time to look at replacing the entire unit rather than working your way through part by part.

Clogs

A toilet constantly clogs, it may be time for an upgrade. Especially with an older low flow toilet, if you find yourself consistently plunging, or flushing more than once on a regular basis, it’s a wise decision to upgrade.

Have any questions about your toilet or your plumbing? One of our licensed plumbers can assess your situation and give you the best options for repair and/or replacement. Give us a call today.

Every year there are usually one or two stories in the news about the effects of carbon monoxide poisoning. They are always difficult to hear, especially when the outcome is fatal.

Especially because it doesn’t have to happen.

Carbon monoxide poisoning isn’t something new. And its not something that will be removed from our society any time soon.

can your gas appliances make you sick Can Your Gas Appliances Make You Sick?

Carbon monoxide is a deadly, colorless, odorless, poisonous gas that is produced by the incomplete burning of fuels such as coal, wood, charcoal, oil, kerosene, propane, or natural gas. Any appliance, product or equipment that is powered by one of these fuels has the risk of malfunctioning and putting a person in danger.

Its not based on how old the appliance is or how many hours of use its had. It doesn’t matter if its operated correctly for years. What does matter is that you stay ahead of the potential danger by doing two things:

  1. Always install gas appliance correctly, and use professional contractors to ensure safety requirements are met.
  1. Perform regular inspections on all gas producing equipment.

Our senses cannot pick up the presence of carbon monoxide in the air. Which means the only way we can determine if its present is to start showing symptoms of being poisoned. They start out in a flu-like manner:

  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • dizziness

And quickly escalate as the poisoning increases:

  • Mental confusion
  • Vomiting
  • Loss of coordination
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Death

A starting point is to install a carbon monoxide detector you can find at your local hardware store. But keep in mind that these are designed to activate when carbon monoxide levels reach 70 parts per million. The problem is by the time levels reach that high, side effects are already occurring. A hard wired carbon monoxide detector will trigger at just 10 parts per million, giving you plenty of time to get to safety and have the situation rectified before any further damage can occur.

One more way to prevent carbon monoxide leaks and poisoning is to have an annual water heater performance and safety inspection each year. One of our plumbers will thoroughly inspect your water heater looking for wear and tear, sediment buildup, corrosion, and gas leaks or potential hazards that could release carbon monoxide into your home.

Give us a call today. Prevention is the cure.

November is here, the cold weather is upon us, and that means the holidays aren’t far behind. First up – Thanksgiving. And with it means lots of friends and family, lots of food … and in some cases lots of plumbing problems.

Thanksgiving is the single busiest day of the year for residential plumbers. After a big holiday meal preparation, lots of cleanup, and waste being sent down the kitchen drain and garbage disposal in droves, its no wonder pipes get clogged. It also means your entire plumbing system is being pushed to the limits, with more clothes washing, showers and toilet flushes. If you had a weak or semi-clogged system to begin with, disaster is waiting in the wings as the system is overwhelmed.

The other problem lies in the fact that virtually every Thanksgiving dish is a major drain clog culprit.

Pumpkin – this may be the one time of the year you make things from scratch. Nothing tastes better than a fresh pumpkin pie, and with all of those leftover pumpkins from Halloween, why not use some for the festive treat? Pumpkin “guts” are slimy and gooey. The stringy mess combines pulp with seeds, and together they can coat and clog just about anything. If this goes down the drain, it will damage your garbage disposal pretty easily. Instead, collect the seeds for roasting. And whatever you have leftover, use for composting.

Grease – while you may use some of it to mix in with gravy, any leftover grease should never be sent down the drain. Grease congeals and clogs quickly as it cools. It can build up around tree roots or other things lodged in the pipe. And as this residue builds, it forms a clog that can do major damage. Instead, pour it into a can and let it congeal before throwing it out.

Bones – everyone may have a favorite part of the Thanksgiving turkey, but your garbage disposals least favorite part are the bones. Bones can quickly splinter and break, jamming in your garbage disposal and burning out the motor in the process.

Vegetables – those side dishes may be delicious, but the most common vegetables served at Thanksgiving are also the most dangerous to your garbage disposal. Asparagus, artichokes, carrot sticks, celery, potato skins, corn husks – all can do harm, especially in greater quantities, which is easy to find when you are cooking up a feast.

If you do choose to run things down your garbage disposal, keep the garbage disposal on as you put food down the drain. Don’t wait until its full before you turn it on. Keep the water on as you send things down the drain, and make sure its running clear before you turn it off. If at all possible, throw large portions of food away rather than sending it down the pipes. This will give your garbage disposal and your pipes a break, and help you get ready for the next holiday meal.

One of the most common questions we receive from our customers is:

Who is responsible for the main water line if it breaks or has a problem?

The answer is one many don’t expect: you are.

As a homeowner, you are responsible for the water main pipe that begins at the curb of your property, and runs into your home. This is the pipe that connects the municipal water supply to your home’s plumbing system. Without it, you wouldn’t have a fresh stream of water to use any time of the day. Its what gives your home its running water to drink, cook, shower, clean, and of course so much more.

why a high water bill could be a sign of a water main problem Why A High Water Bill Could Be A Sign Of A Water Main Problem

In some cases, a main water line break can cause severe damage, and you’ll know instantly you have a problem. If your basement begins to flood, or you have a instant fountain in your front lawn as the water rises up out of your landscaping, you know you have a problem.

But in some cases the problem isn’t as big or as noticeable … for awhile. This is where the problem becomes costly. This is where it takes a little investigation to determine where the source truly is. And in many cases, the best place to start is with your water bill.

The longer you live in your home, the more accustomed you become to what the monthly charge is. Here in Colorado, it will be higher in July and lower in January, yet you still have an average for what you know it should be. When you receive an unexpected surprise and your water bill increases without a reasonable explanation, this is when a little more investigation is needed. Check your home for other problems.

  • Is the water pressure low or are certain areas of your home or without water altogether?
  • Is the water changing colors, becoming discolored or have a murky look to it?
  • Do you notice excessive amounts of water in your yard? Puddles that shouldn’t be there?
  • Walk around your yard – are there any visible sink holes?
  • Do you hear the sound of running water in your basement when water is not in use in the home?

There are many reasons a water main line will break. In many cases, its simply age. If you live in an older home and the pipes have been in place for decades, age can cause deterioration over time. The EPA estimates that the average water main has a useful life of around 47 years.

It can also break depending on the material of the pipe. Older homes often have pipes made from clay, steel or tile, which are more prone to deterioration. Other variables include overgrown tree roots, sudden shifts in the weather, or even movement in the earth from ground settling or small tremors from earthquakes.

While any of these things can cause a disruption in your service, the good news is its fixable immediately by one of our skilled technicians. The best time to start is when you think you may have a problem – don’t wait until it escalates, causing even more damage to your property.

One of the main systems in your home is the plumbing. Proper plumbing design is a science; its one we think very little about until there’s a problem in the system. Your plumbing system brings water in and flushes waste out. It must be properly regulated to provide adequate water pressure throughout. It must work properly to keep toxins out of your family’s way.

how to find the right plumbing contractor How To Find The Right Plumbing Contractor

In short, there’s a lot of nuances to keep the system functioning properly all year through.

How do you find the right plumbing contractor to help you through both the small repairs and the emergency situations? How do you take the stress out of finding a reputable plumbing company you can trust?

What to look for in a plumbing contractor:

Ask to see a plumber’s state license. In order to work as a plumber in Colorado, all plumbers – including sub-contractors all the way up to master plumbers – must be licensed in the state.

Check for proof of insurance. For your own protection, make sure the plumbing contractor you hire has general liability and workman’s compensation insurance.

Make sure the follow building codes and receive proper permits. Depending on the job and your location, proper procedures must be followed.

Are they stable business owners? Even a simple search online can point you in the right direction. Find out if they have a web presence. Are they listed on review sites like Yelp. What is the general population saying about the plumbing contractor you are considering?

What you should know about rates:

Yes, not all plumbing contractors will charge in the same manner, which makes it that much more difficult for you to compare and make sure you are getting a fair deal. Some will charge a flat rate, while others will price things out and show you time and materials. The key is in asking what the price quoted includes, and where additional charges may come into play.

Some plumbing companies may offer low hourly rates, but charge extra for additional items as needed, such as equipment fees or trip costs. Others may charge higher prices, but it may be on an all-inclusive basis where the entire job is quoted up front. Be sure you are comparing apples to apples when selecting your final bid.

Also remember that a plumbing contractor can help you in many ways … beyond the emergency plumbing repair. You know that leaky faucet that’s been driving you crazy for months? Or the new faucet you wanted installed in the kitchen, but is still lying in a box in the cabinet? Plumbers can help you with all that and more. Just keep in mind that if you have older fixtures to install, they have to meet current guidelines for a plumber to install it. If you have any questions, he would be happy to answer them as you are contemplating the job.

Nothing can be more exciting than buying a new home. However, if two weeks after you move in things start happening with your plumbing system, you may soon be convinced you purchased the “money pit”. There is a way to avoid all of that … perform a plumbing inspection before buying a home, and you’ll find out the condition before you put in that final offer.

perform these plumbing inspections before buying a home Perform These Plumbing Inspections Before Buying A Home

Start by checking your main sewer line.

A home’s plumbing operates in one of two ways: by a municipal sewer system or a septic tank. Start by asking the seller about the plumbing history of the home, age of major appliances including the water heater, and about any work that may still be under warranty. To find out the condition of the municipal sewer system, a plumbing contractor can come in and set up a camera line inspection to quickly tell you the overall condition of the plumbing. If the house runs on a septic tank, find out where its located, the capacity of the tank, and the location of the drain field. Consider having it inspected as well.

Inspect the water heater.

Find out where the water heater is in the home, its capacity and how old it is. Water heaters typically last anywhere from 8 to 12 years. If you see visible signs of corrosion, you can ask for a new one to be installed before closing. To verify the age, find the serial number which is located on the plate of the water heater. It will have the age on it as well.

Find leaks in the system

Part of the inspection process should be to spend time in the home and locate smaller potential problems. As you make your way from room to room, do you notice any drips of water coming from the fixtures? Do you see small wet spots where they shouldn’t be? What you may have missed in the few minutes you spent in the home while deciding whether to put in an offer, can easily come to light when you spend more time in a room.

Flush every toilet

Flush every toilet in the home and make sure it works properly, filling back up with water in a timely basis. Do you hear small leaks? Also check around the base for evidence of prior leaks.

Look for adequate protection on risky pipes

If you’ve ever dealt with a frozen pipe, you know how devastating it can be. As you are making your way through your home inspection, look for visible signs of previous pipe problems, and also look for potential problems in the future. Pipes on outside walls without adequate protection are signs you may have a future problem without upgrading the situation now.

Check for lead pipes

In homes built before 1986, you’ll often find lead or galvanized plumbing. Lead is an environmental hazard, and precautions should be taken to avoid using lead in your water supply. If the system hasn’t been updated, talk about your options before you sign on the dotted line.

Plumbing. Its one of those things we rely on every single day. Yet overall, we don’t think much about it. We know plumbing controls the water in our house, but how the process works is usually something we take for granted. Ask 10 people on your block where the water shut-off valve is to their homes, and less than half would know its location. (Do you?)

professional plumbing contractors Professional Plumbing Contractors

When water enters your home, its designed to provide a steady stream of water anywhere in your home. It begins at the source, which is either a municipal source or a private well. Then water pressure sends the water through the pipes and throughout your home. Typically you will find water pressure is between 35 to 85 pounds on average, and will be the same in the far upstairs bathroom as it is in the basement bathroom right by the source. Water temperature usually hovers around 40 degrees Fahrenheit, and will need a water heater to heat it up to a comfortable temperature perfect for daily use. While you can control the water supply at each fixture in your home, your home also has a water shut-off valve usually in the basement or storage room that controls the water supply from the main to your home.

If your home relies on well water, the system is pressurized in a holding tank for distribution when you demand it. Using today’s technology, most wells are drilled and installed somewhere near the home. A drill bit is sent down into the ground until water is discovered. Drilling continues until a certain gallon-per-minute rate is reached. The well is then capped off and a pipe is lowered. Then a system of pipes and wires is built around it, allowing the water transfer to take place and providing signals to keep the homeowner aware of when pressure in the holding tank is low.

What goes in must come out. When water comes into your home, its for daily use. After its used for its intended purposes, its sent back out and on its way. Plumbing is dual-purpose, meaning its designed for both the inflow and outflow process. This includes all waste matter from sinks, showers, washing machines, dishwashers, toilets and garbage disposals.

Sewage disposal is either processed by a local municipal, or by septic tank. In urban areas, pipes allow waste water to flow from homes, into the sewer systems, and back to the local municipality for processing. In rural areas, septic tanks are used. These holding tanks allow bacteria to break down the solids before it drains to a leaching field. Holding tanks must also be pumped out every few years to remove sludge and keep the system healthy.

Plumbers are typically licensed and specialize in handling the water flow and the gas supply of your home. Because many appliances are gas-forced, a plumber has the necessary knowledge and tools to make sure its running effectively. These systems are vitally important to the health of your home and to your family.

Most plumbing related problems come up at an instant – emergency situations are a plumbers expertise. If you have any questions or problems, to rectify the situation quickly, its important to have a professional plumber you can trust; one that will get the job done the right way the first time.

If you have any questions or concerns about your plumbing system, please give us a call. We’re here to help.

Unfortunately, few things in your home scream emergency quite like a plumbing problem. When a pipe bursts, spraying water all over your home, the last thing you think about is comparison shopping. Instead, you want help fast and you want it NOW.

That’s also the easiest way to get into trouble, paying exorbitant fees for in some cases sub-par work. Plumbers know this. And if you get a less than scrupulous plumber on the phone during your weekend or holiday emergency, it’s a recipe for disaster.

how to hire a plumber in an emergency How To Hire A Plumber In An Emergency

Of course you know this – that’s why this process is so difficult. With every phone call you make, you see the dollar signs flashing before your eyes. But what else can you do?

Actually, quite a bit.

Instead of heading to the nearest phone book or sending out a search to Google from your iPhone, take a step back first. The most important part of a plumbing emergency is to stop the problem first, and in most cases you can do that easily. Plumbing means water – you have to stop the water flow to begin to control the problem. Find the water supply main shut off valve and turn it off. That cuts the water flow, and buys you time to take the next steps without being in a state of panic.

All major appliances that use water have a shut off valve to control water at the source. If you are sure where the problem originates, you can head straight to the appliance and cut the water supply there. If not, all homes have a main shut off valve that controls the water supply from the municipal to your home. Its typically located near your water meter, either in the basement or crawl space of your home, or outside near the pavement or sidewalk. When you find this valve, you will need a wrench to shut off the water supply.

Once you shut off the water source, its important to check and make sure you have stopped the leak. Keep in mind that depending on what is leaking or broke may have residual water, so its important to monitor it and make sure the water stops. This will buy you some time to find a reputable plumber that can help you fix your problem at a reasonable cost.

If you can wait for normal working hours, this will give you a chance to do a little research and find reputable plumbers in your area. Choose a few and connect with them to ask a few questions. Provide as much detail as you can about the situation, and ask about their availability and their approach to the problem. You can learn quite a bit about a plumber by the way they respond to your needs.

If you are dealing with weekend or holiday hours, and the situation can’t wait until the next normal work day, this also gives you time to do a little research. You can approach finding a plumber in much the same way, yet keep in mind you’ll have to ask about special rates and availability.

Plumbing is a very competitive marketplace, and you’ll find all kinds of information online. Check out a plumbers website – does it look professional? How involved are they in the community – do they have good reviews by local organizations? In today’s world, you can find reviews and feedback in a variety of places. When you’ve narrowed your search down to a few plumbers, spend time getting comfortable with a potential plumber. If you see negative review after negative review, it may be a sign to proceed with caution.

Also make sure you understand the billing process. Every plumber will quote in a different manner. Some with higher hourly rates may charge you only for the time in your home, versus a lower hourly rate may be charging you from his location and back again. If something doesn’t make sense or doesn’t compare, ask. A reputable plumber will help you understand it thoroughly and help you make an educated decision.

It’s a cold morning. The air in your bedroom has yet to be warmed. The floor is icy to the touch. Yet all you have to do is make it to the shower, and you can stand there soaking in the warmth.

Nothing feels better than a warm stream of water working its magic to warm you up for the day. That’s why in many cases, shower options are becoming more elaborate. You can find multi-head shower fixtures, rainfall showerheads, and much more at your local hardware store; everything to make your dream shower a reality.

But is a dream shower a good idea? Water conservation is a big deal; and according to recent headlines, baths could be more eco-friendly than a shower.

how to give your shower more power without wasting water How To Give Your Shower More Power Without Wasting Water

According to studies, the average eight minute shower will use around 17 gallons of water. The average bath uses around 21 gallons.

And of course, this is where variables come in to play. How full do you fill the tub? How large is the tub? Are you using a water wise showerhead? Are you taking a power shower?

But no matter what choices you make, there are ways to reduce your water usage while enjoying your shower too.

Start with a clean showerhead

As you use your showerhead over and over again, build up from mineral deposits in the water occur. Instead of using harsh chemicals to remove the deposits, use an eco-friendlier cleaner of white vinegar instead. If you remove the showerhead, you can submerge it in a bucket of white vinegar for a couple of hours until the mineral deposits can be rinsed away. Or if you choose not to remove the showerhead, fill a small plastic bag with white vinegar and pull up over the showerhead and secure with a rubber band, hair tie, or other fastener. Leave on overnight, then turn the water on and rinse away the remaining mineral deposits. Either way you’ll bring your showerhead back to new-like condition.

Look for low flow showerhead options

Just because you choose to save water doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your shower too. Next time you are at your local hardware store, head down the bath aisle and browse through your options. Because today’s manufacturers know people demand both high quality shower options that save water too, there are many different options to choose from. You can also talk with your local plumber, who can share ideas of manufacturers that aren’t in your common, neighborhood big box stores.

Multiple Showerheads doesn’t mean more water

Since 1992, federal regulations have required that showerheads deliver no more than 2.5 gallons of water per minute. Some companies sidestepped the regulation by interpreting it to mean 2.5 gallons per showerhead, so the solution to more power was to have more streams. In 2010, these regulations were updated to say that a showerhead, no matter how many sprays, nozzles or openings it uses, cannot exceed 2.5 gallon per minute in total. So if you want to update your bathroom and a multi showerhead shower is on your top wish list, install it knowing you will still meet today’s water conservation limits.

We’re a society of do-it-yourselfers and quick fixes. If something is broke, we want to fix it fast. And if we can head down to the big box store and pick up a quick fix we can do ourselves, all the better.

While its true that some minor clogs can be fixed quickly with home remedies, minor problems are often a sign of a larger problem lurking in the wings. If you have any of these problems in your home, it may be time to call in a professional before the problem escalates.

5 common drain problems that signal it may be time to call in a professional 5 Common Drain Problems That Signal It May Be Time To Call In A Professional

Slow Drain

A slow drain might not seem like a big issue. After all, the water still flows, albeit on a slow basis. Slow drains can indicate a variety of problems, including a pipe that has a buildup of grease or oil blocking the path, improper grading of the drainage system, or even early warning signs of a larger block deeper down. When you attempt to clear a drain yourself, you only touch surface problems – clogs that are close to the surface of your drain. It’s the deeper problems that can cause the largest messes.

Recurring Clogs

You clean it. It backs up. You clean it again. Its still running slow. When you have a “problem” drain that consistently seems like it has a problem, it probably does. Clogged drains can often have multiple problem areas where food, grime, hair, oil, and other debris accumulate over time. You might have removed a surface problem, but it’s the problems down the line that are causing your recurring problems.

Multiple Clogs

Your sink backs up. Your toilet overflows. And finally your shower has standing water a few minutes into it. This is a sure sign of a deeper problem; something the plunger or those off the shelf products won’t touch. The problem lies deep in your pipes, and its effecting the functionality of your home. The only way to reach it is with a deep cleaning process from a professional plumber.

Odor

What’s that funny smell? If you notice a distinct smell coming from your drain, especially when it stands for a period of time, it could be a sign of a larger problem. As pollutants build up, they can quickly break down and deteriorate, causing a distinct odor. It may also be a problem with a broken pipe, or a sewer line that needs fixing or restoring. The only way to get to the root of the problem is to call in a professional and find out where the problem begins.

Flooding

Flooding is the most serious of all plumbing problems. When you reach the point of water coming up out of drains in your basement floor, this could indicate a clog in the sewer line. Even a little bit of water can be a strong indication of a bigger problem, so its important to handle it right away. Sewer water means contamination, and the risk of losing personal property is eminent if not dealt with right away.

By ignoring the warning signs, you are setting yourself up for more serious consequences in the future. The easiest way to prevent future disasters is to call in a professional plumber right away.
