When Do You Call a Plumber?

It is tantamount to knowing when to call a doctor, a dentist, or an auto mechanic.  We all would like to think that plumbing problems will go away on their own, but the plain and simple fact is when certain events occur in your home or office you can’t afford to wait any longer.  Let the plumbing professionals do their job!

Here are some sure signs that it is time to call a plumber –


1.  You are tired of that drip, drip, drip.  There are many different solutions.
2.  The water pressure is noticeably lower than it was.
3.  Where did the hot water go?
4.  The drains continue to back up in the sink, or shower, or toilet.

Come on now, you did NOT go to school for this!  If every plumbing job in your home becomes a DIY job you could be headed for a bad conclusion.  Call the Northwest Suburbs ultimate plumbing professionals.  We are the team representing Tom’s Plumbing Inc.  Hesitation could create chaos in your home or office.  Call (847) 697-6444.

You might not ever consider drinking the water that comes out of your tap.  We understand, but yet, you may be showering in that same water every day.  You don’t think that some of that water gets in your mouth and up your nose?  Why not have a professional check for water quality including iron content?

What is the advantage of a reverse osmosis system?   Reverse osmosis removes dissolved minerals and other contaminants that cause water to smell unpleasant, taste poorly and take on unusual colors…check, check, and check! By removing dissolved minerals, metals and other particles it benefits of your plumbing system.

Don’t Ignore a Backed-Up Drain.

Okay, we have nearly made it through this ridiculous winter weather.  It does not mean you can exhale when it comes to your plumbing.  We are all human, and we may ignore plumbing problems when they are in their infancy.  The danger in that is, one day you look down and your basement or laundry room is an indoor swamp!

Just because you think you may be out of the “plumbing emergency woods” now that spring is right around the corner, ask yourself…when was the last time I had my hoses checked?  How about the shut-off valves?  Did they get frozen over the winter?  The laundry room especially is the greatest ignored area of your home, probably.

Why not call Tom’s Plumbing Inc.?  They will come out to your Elgin area home and inspect all of the water lines…both hot and cold.  There is nothing more satisfying than peace of mind.  By the way, since we are already there, have the water heater checked.  We are Tom’s Plumbing Inc. serving the Northwest Suburbs of Chicagoland for decades.  Call (847) 697-6444.

When to Replace Galvanized Pipes.

Galvanizing is a metallurgical process used over the past 150 years to coat steel or iron with zinc to inhibit corrosion. The life span of galvanized pipe used for water delivery is about 40 years. You can probably imagine that it was “the way to go” many years ago. Galvanized pipes have seen their day.

This is the era of copper. Copper Plumbing pipes are very durable. They will last for dozens of years. They are also weather resistant so you can use them outside of the house as well as the inside. Maybe best of all, they are corrosion resistant, and will not burn in case of fire.

To learn more about if, when, and how much it will take to modernize your castle with copper piping call Elgin’s repipe professionals Tom’s Plumbing Inc. Tom’s serves most of the Northwest Suburbs of Chicagoland with plumbing repair, replacement, and emergencies in general. This time call Tom’s Plumbing Inc. at (847) 697-6444.
