Backflow Testing & Prevention

When it comes to the water that flows into your home, it should only flow into it. However, sometimes, pressure changes in the pipes, causing sewer to seep back into the main water line and tainting your family’s water supply with fertilizers and pesticides, human waste, chlorine, soap, and more. To prevent this, we provide backflow prevention devices installed on the pipes where this occurs only to allow water to flow in one direction, preventing the backflow. Here are the two main ways that backflow happens:

  • Changes in Pressure – When the pressure in a pipe changes, backsiphonage can occur, which is what causes the water to reverse flow and taint your supply.
  • Backflow Prevention Device Break – This can be due to poor installation or just age that has corroded away the prevention device.

Garbage Disposals

We provide repair and replacement of garbage disposal systems. Garbage disposals routinely become clogged or malfunction due to frequent use. Here are a few things you can do to troubleshoot your garbage disposal if something goes wrong.

  • Grind ice cubes and rinds of citrus fruits in the disposal for about 30 seconds
  • Pour liquid detergent into the disposal while it’s running
  • Rinse remaining debris with cold water for 30 seconds
  • Turn the disposal switch off
  • Unplug the appliance from the outlet
  • Press the reset switch
  • Turn the disposal back on and test it

*Never put your hands into the disposal near the blades!

Gas Piping

Does your home run appliances off natural gas? If so, you’re not alone. Over 62 Million American homes run on natural gas. It’s a clean, semi-renewable energy resource that’s affordable and highly reliable.

However, gas is flammable, and it’s poisonous if it starts to leak into your home. With that in mind, it’s important to know a local gas piping company that can help with repair and new installations. We provide leak repair, gas line repair, gas line installation, high-pressure gas piping, gas line replacement, and other gas piping services!

With this in mind, it’s important to limit anything you’re putting into your drains that isn’t water or soluble in water. We provide drain cleaning for the following areas of your home:
