Piping Material for Your House—Time to Replace It?

Monday, August 6th, 2018

pipe-decayStaten Island has a long history of habitation, and there are buildings here that stretch back centuries. The Billiou-Stillwell-Perine House, for example, was built in 1662!

You probably don’t live in a pre-Colonial house, but you may live in a house with a long history—and perhaps plumbing that’s a bit, uhm, historical as well. And not in the “history that must be preserved” kind of way. Unless you think your house can be registered as a National Historical Landmark, we strongly recommend you update its “vintage” water piping.

How to Treat Your Garbage Disposal Better

Monday, July 9th, 2018

plumber-at-kitchen-sinkThe garbage disposal in the kitchen sink makes life easier, doesn’t it? If you’ve ever had to work in a kitchen without a disposal, you’ll know how difficult it is to handle food waste and clean dishes when you have to scrape off leftover food into a composting container and take it to the trash. Not only does a garbage disposal save you time and labor, it helps keep organic waste out of the landfill, instead sending it into the municipal sewer system.

You want your garbage disposal to keep working for you for many years. The best way to see that it lasts is to know how best to treat it. Below are tips for helping your garbage disposal keep at its useful job for a long time to come.

Old Pipes, More Problems: You May Need a Plumber for Water Repiping

Monday, June 11th, 2018

PVC-pipesHow old is the plumbing in your house? Well, first let’s ask you a different question: How old is your house? If it was built before 1970, it may have pipes made from an outdated material that will start to give you problems in the not-too-distant future (if they haven’t already). And if the house was built before World War II, then it almost ­certainly needs replacements for its old pipes, probably whole-house repiping.

Repiping at any scale, from redoing a few drains in the bathroom to repiping an entire house, requires a professional plumber in East Brunswick, NJ. If you have reason to believe your home’s plumbing is in decline because of leaks, drops in water pressure, signs of corrosion, and constant clogs, speak to a licensed plumber to find out the repiping work you need done.

You Need a Professional Plumber to Find Those Leaks

Monday, May 14th, 2018

leaking-pipeLeaking pipes are among the most common type of home plumbing trouble that plumbers deal with. (Only clogged drains occur more frequently.) If an exposed pipe, such as a drainpipe, starts to leak, it’s easy for a homeowner to see something is wrong and know that it’s time to call on a professional plumber.

But think about the extent of the piping in the average home. Where is most of it located? That’s right, it’s behind walls and down in the floors or up in the ceiling. It’s this fact that explains why you need to have licensed plumbers handle all types of leaks—because simply finding the leaks is a huge part of the job.

Now Is the Time to Check Your Sump Pump

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

flooded-houseWhen you think of spring, what comes to mind first? Warmer weather is one, but you probably think of rain as well. Spring is the rainiest of the seasons, and this can sometimes mean flooding danger that can create damage to homes. Having a sump pump installed in the basement of a house is one of the best ways to stop flooding damage.

If your home has a sump pump, the start of spring is the right time to check on it to make sure it will work. Because a sump pump only comes on occasionally during an emergency, it’s important to know if it can do its job. We’re going to help you give your sump pump a short inspection and test. You’ll find out ahead of time if you need repairs for the sump pump or if it’s time to replace an old one.
