    The Benefits of Pipe Lining

    Last updated 4 years ago

    Sewer repair doesn’t have to be a headache—at Expert Plumbing Service, we want to make your plumbing problems disappear as quickly as possible. Pipe lining can be used to address sewer problems without damaging your property in order to make repairs. This process can be completed from above ground with absolutely no need to dig. After lining, your sewer pipe will become one long, continuous pipe without any joints that could potentially fail or leak. Our pipe lining material is long-lasting and damage-resistant, meaning it won’t crack or develop calcium deposits that could weaken the material. The materials we use to line your pipes are so durable that we guarantee the work for the next 50 years.

    Water-Saving Tips Every Homeowner Should Know

    Last updated 4 years ago

    Saving water means reducing the environmental impact of your home and reducing the total of your monthly water bills. A few changes around your home can save thousands of gallons of water each year. If you’d like more water-saving ideas and tips, ask your plumber for advice.

    Address Leaks Immediately
    Leaks are the top water-waster in the majority of homes across America. Leaks can add up to thousands of gallons of water wasted annually in your home—water you’re paying for but not using. If you suspect or find a leak in your home, have it repaired immediately rather than waiting. Running toilets, dripping fixtures, and worn pipes can all be fixed for a lower cost than the total amount of water they waste in your home.

    Upgrade Your Appliances
    Today’s water-saving appliances use significantly less water than their older counterparts. A low-flow faucet or dual-flush toilet reduces your water usage without sacrificing comfort. Your toilets and washing machine are the top two water-guzzling appliances in your home that could be using more water than necessary. Upgrading your washing machine, water heater, or toilets to newer models that meet or exceed governmental conservation standards could also qualify you for a tax rebate.

    Modify Your Fixtures
    If you’re not ready to replace any major appliances, you can easily make some small modifications to your existing fixtures to save water instead. Install aerators on kitchen and bathroom faucets to reduce water flow through these fixtures. Aerators inject oxygen into the flowing water, preserving water pressure while reducing flow rate. Replacing showerheads with low-flow fixtures is another low-cost option to reduce your family’s water usage in the bathroom.

    How to Maintain Your Water Heater

    Last updated 4 years ago

    Your home’s water heater is one of its hardest-working appliances. Often, homeowners don’t spare much thought for their water heaters until problems arise, but a few preventive measures can help to avoid costly repairs or replacement. Maintaining your water heater requires only a few moments of your time once a year for consistent performance.

    Replace the Anode Rod
    Your water heater has a piece of metal called an anode rod to prevent buildup inside the tank. The anode rod is made from a strip of magnesium or aluminum, which attracts corrosive materials in place of the tank walls to maintain the tank’s integrity. However, once the rod becomes corroded, a new one is needed. You can check the anode rod yourself by first draining a few gallons of water, then unscrewing the rod. If the anode rod is coated completely with calcium or appears less than half an inch thick, it requires replacement.

    Flush the Tank
    Flushing your water heater’s tank once a year will further help to prevent buildup of sediment and other debris. If your water heater is making clanging noises, you should also flush the tank to clear it of sediment and scale. Attach a hose to the drain valve to guide the tank’s contents into a drain or outside your home. Remember that the water leaving your heater will be hot. Once the tank is empty, close the valve and refill it.

    Check the Release Valve
    All water heaters have an emergency pressure-release valve, which releases water if the pressure inside the tank rises too high. Check this valve by placing a bucket under its drain pipe and lifting the tab for a few seconds before releasing it. If water continues to drain even after the valve has closed, it could be faulty and should be replaced.
