Yes, a Garbage Disposal Is Worth the Investment

Monday, March 16th, 2020

Back in the day, a garbage disposal was somewhat of a luxury appliance. They used to be found as frequently as a bidet or a wine cooler, but as they become more common in homes, their function is becoming less of just a convenient tool and more of a staple point for reducing waste.

If you’re at all confused with what we just said—don’t worry, we’ll explain just how a garbage disposal can help you reduce waste.

5 Common Commercial Plumbing Problems to Watch Out for

Monday, October 14th, 2019

Did you know that leaky faucets waste thousands of gallons of water a year? Or how about the fact that a running toilet can indicate a more serious problem that also wastes hundreds of gallons of water each year?

Could You Use a Backflow Preventer?

Monday, September 30th, 2019

We know, some of this might sound like mumbo-jumbo, but trust us when we say that it might be exactly what your home needs. If you’re constantly dealing with contaminated drinking water in your home, due to gravity, pressure changes, or unfortunate circumstances, you might want to keep reading.

A backflow preventer is a tool that is pretty much universally used by any plumber in Erlanger, KY because of its incredibly narrow yet helpful purpose. Its job is simple, it stops your dirty, waste-water from flowing backward and contaminating your clean drinking water. That’s basically it. Except even when people don’t think they need a backflow preventer, a break in the main water line or the use of a fire hydrant nearby can suddenly decrease the pressure in your pipes, allowing water to then flow back into the city water lines.

This can be a disaster. Today, we’re going to help you avoid that disaster.
