Monday, May 13th, 2019

drain-bubbling

Think about the last time you washed your hands or took a shower. You lathered yourself up with soap, washed yourself, and let it all rinse off into the drain.

After turning off the water, what happened to all the soap and suds? Did they go straight down into the drain without an issue, or did they disappear slowly, slowly, and leave a big mess of soap bubbles and water behind?

If you’re experiencing that second scenario more than the first, then we have to ask you: Do you have a clogged drain? A drain that takes several minutes to completely drain itself is usually one of the first indicators that you’re facing a clog.

Here are some common causes of drain clogs and what you can do about it!

Monday, March 18th, 2019

water-filtration-system A water treatment system’s purpose is to prevent certain chemicals, contaminants, or minerals from entering your drinking water.

We’ll go over the differences between the two, as well as explaining when each is most appropriate, in order to help with your plans for water treatment.

Is Hydro-Jetting Really the Best Way to Clean Drains?

Monday, March 4th, 2019

hydro-jettingHydro-jetting is often praised as one of the best methods for cleaning drains. Essentially, a hydro-jet is a line with a jet at the end. The jet sprays highly pressurized water in several angles to wash out the inside of pipes.

Your alternatives are drain cleaners, which can be harmful to the pipes, slow, and only effective in a small area. There are also drain snakes, which are effective at breaking up a clog but really have nothing to do with “cleaning.” When a professional plumber uses these tactics, it’s often for a strategic purpose.

But there’s more to hydro-jetting than simply “being better” than drain cleaners and drain snakes. We’ll go over all the details below.

Why Do I Need A Water Softener?

boy-drinking-water“After all, my water tastes as normal as it should. In fact, I don’t even really like the taste of water to begin with, I usually drink flavored waters.”
