I Say, Bradford…are you ready to go to work?

This is not a British play.  This is a tribute to a great American brand of water heaters.  Have you heard of Bradford?  The slogan at Bradford White is “built to be the best” and indeed they are.  Bradford White is proud to be American owned with its quality water heaters all made in the good old USA!

Do yourself a big favor if your water heater has shown signs of aging and is starting to leak.  Go to  Browse the resource center for FAQs and warranty information.  Maybe take a few more minutes (if necessary) and look at the credentials of another name brand.  We think you will see that Bradford water heaters are truly built to be the best.

If you live in Elgin or anywhere nearby in the Northwest Suburbs the next step is to make the call to Tom’s Plumbing Inc.  Tom’s has been your area Bradford White water heater installer for quite some time.  We have learned over the years as you will come to know that you have made the best choice for quality as well as durability.  Call Tom’s Plumbing at (847) 697-6444.

Where Were You 21 Years Ago?

That is a cryptic beginning to an interesting memory.  If you were a home owner in the Fox Valley on July 18, 1996 I will bet that you will remember.  In the storm center, 35,000 homes experienced flood damage in a matter of hours as our area experienced a record seventeen inches of rain in 24 hours!

This is not to say that a weather episode of this magnitude will happen again anytime soon.  It IS to say, that this is the time of year when sudden, violent, intense rain storms are likely to hit the Northwest Suburbs.  Now, ask yourself…are you prepared?  Even four or five inches of rain overnight could result in a flooded basement.

Is your sump pump working properly?  Is the battery fully charged?  How about the back-up battery?  Before the next heavy rain hits…and it will (ask those home-owners who weren’t prepared in ’96).  Call Tom’s Plumbing Inc. at (847) 697-6444.  Have them come to your home and double-check all of the components that will keep you high and dry this summer.

It Sounds Like a Truck in Here.

This summer there is considerable hustle and bustle in your kitchen.  The kids are home and they are pouring heaven knows what into your kitchen’s garbage disposal.  The temptation is to just give up on your current garbage disposal unit when, in fact, many of them could be repaired, restoring peace and quiet to your kitchen.

One of the first things to look for if you are not hearing sounds would be a leak underneath your sink.  In many cases, the problem is not necessarily with the unit, but rather the way it was installed or the pipes leading to it.  So don’t just automatically blame Jimmy for throwing his cereal in there!

What is important is to troubleshoot the problem before it disrupts your entire home.  You need an expert plumber to do that.  In the Elgin area that company continues to be garbage disposal repair and replacement specialists Tom’s Plumbing Inc.  They know their way around kitchens and bathrooms in the Northwest Suburbs.  Keep this number handy (847) 697-6444.
