Waiting for a plumbing problem to happens is one of the worst things you can do to keep expenses down.

Hiring an unreputable plumbing contractor and the second worst things you can do

When mentioning a reputable, licensed, bonded and insured plumbing contractor, most automatically think of being over charged by a over qualified company.

Time after time going the cheapest route will cost you more in the long run. That's guarantee you can bank on.

Here's a good rule of thumb:
Fast jobs are not cheap | Fast cheap jobs are not good | Cheap good jobs are not fast
Which one do you want.

Common questions about your Plumbing

Air Conditioning

What does a BTU really mean?

The Bob & Marc Answer:
A ton of cooling is now defined as delivering 12,000 BTU/hour of cooling. BTU is short for British Thermal Unit (and is a unit that the British do not use) The BTU is a unit of heating - or in this case, cooling - energy. It’s more important, however, to keep in perspective that a window air conditioner is usually less than one ton. A small home central air conditioner would be about two tons and a large one about five tons.

Water Heaters

How can I keep my what heater running longer?

The Bob & Marc Answer:
One way is to turn the power off on the unit. Connect a hose to water heater. Drain the water out. Open and close the inlet valve a few time to let that stuff settled inside come out.


What can I do to reduce loss with a toilet?

The Bob & Marc Answer:
From too much water flow at flush to handle keeps coming loose or doesn't stop trying to fill the tank to floor leaks under the toilet, unless you have some experience, it is best to have an experienced reputable plumber fix your toilet. This alone will save you money beyond the actual repair itself.


My dishwasher doesn't drain.

The Bob & Marc Answer:
Some water should be left behind after each wash. This is a normal thing. But, if you have an unreasonable amount of water left in the unit after a wash, check the drain / over flow outlet that is usually next to your kitchen faucet. It might be clogged.


I cannot get hot water to come out of the faucet

The Bob & Marc Answer:
Whether it's a sink or shower faucet, it's probably something that is happening inside the faucet that is worn. Most newer faucets can be repaired by replacing the cartridge inside. Even though you can go Online and try to order the correct parts, it's confusing to most do it yourselfers. Have your plumber fix it for you as this is typically a very inexpensive service call.

Hard & Soft Water

Q. What is the difference between hard and soft water?

The Bob & Marc Answer:
Hard water has more minerals present such as calcium magnesium. You see this as build up around the area where the water comes out. Soft water does not have this effect as much. A sodium treatment will help the hard water issue.
