Emergency Plumbing Service
With the busy lives, we lead, it is easy to forget how important good plumbing is. We get used to the fact that clean water flows out of the taps when we turn them on. Likewise, we expect hot water when we turn the water heater on. It is easy to see why we get stressed when this does not happen. When you have an emergency, you want a plumber around quickly to sort things out, you want a highly trained plumber from Bert Norman’s.
Bert Norman’s Plumbing suggests that you have your plumbing system regularly inspected. If you think that you have a clog or blockage forming somewhere in your pipework, then call us straight away. Leaving the problem for another day will only make matters worse. That blockage could cause your toilet to overflow. It could also mean that your sewer line is blocked and damaged with the prospect of sewage backing up into your home. Unlike in the past, we may not have to do any digging, with new technology like fiber optics and closed-circuit video cameras, a plumber can see exactly what is going on and where the blockage is.
The main reason why the water in a sink starts to drain more slowly is that a clog has formed in the pipework. These clogs are usually due to grease and other material sticking to the insides of pipes, building up and restricting the flow of water. Some companies use acid-based chemicals to remove grease. We at Bert Norman’s think that this is not a good idea. These chemicals may dissolve the grease only to deposit it further along the pipe. Any harsh chemicals have the potential to damage old pipes and joints and so cause a leak. We use a method that converts the grease into CO2 and water, and this makes certain that the grease is fully removed.
Tank and Tankless Water Heater Services
The best thing you can do for your water heater is to have a regular service in Callahan, FL from Bert Norman’s. This will ensure that your heater is operating safely and efficiently. But even the best-maintained water heaters will need replacing eventually.
If you have an old water heater over ten years old, it may be time to replace it. You may also want to upgrade it if you now have a larger family or have more water appliances. If you use too many at the same time your water heater may not be able to cope and even shut down. If this happens too many times, you increase the risk of needing a repair.
But which water heater do you pick to replace it? More and more people are buying tankless water heaters these days and it is easy to understand why! There is no need to have a large permanently heated storage tank, as a tankless system heats water on demand. They are more energy-efficient and can have a longer working life if they are well maintained. A skilled plumber from Bert Norman’s can help you decide the correctly sized unit that will cope with any current and future hot water demands.
Whatever type of water heater you have or need you can rest assured that we at Bert Norman’s Plumbing have many years of experience in servicing, repairing, and installing new water heaters.
A sump pump will remove any excess water that collects in your basement and so prevents any flooding. It sits in a gravel pit dug in your basement; any excess water will gather in the pit. As the pit starts to fill up, a pressure sensor or a float activator arm will turn the pump on, removing the water through pipes that usually lead into a specified outdoor drainage area.
Rather than wait until heavy rain or the risk of flooding increases, we suggest that you clean and test the pump regularly. You should pour a bucket of water into the pit to be sure the pump begins automatically and that the water empties rapidly. If the pump does not start, then call Bert Norman’s, you need one of our sump pump services.
Repairing and Replacing Pipes in FL
If you live in an older house and you are having endlessly leaking pipes, it may be time to think about having them replaced. Older pipework may be badly corroded, and if your water has an unpleasant taste, it may be due to bits of rust passing into your water. A Bert Norman Plumbing team can help you redesign a new plumbing network to suit the space you are renovating.
