What’s in your Shower Water?

Do you ever think about that?  You know not to drink contaminated water, but do you think it is okay to shower in it?  The truth is, showering with bad water can be as bad as consuming it.  Unfiltered shower water can contain an array of chemicals like chlorine, not to mention bacteria and fungus from the shower head.  Yech!!!

Here are some reasons why you should use a shower filter –

1.  Absorbing much less chlorine…do some research on why too much chlorine is bad
2.  Keep harmful chemicals out of the air into your bathroom
3.  Protect your skin from irritation
4.  Reduce your family’s cancer risk from those bad chemicals

That last one is reason enough to strongly consider a new water treatment system for all of the showers in your home.  Tom’s Plumbing Inc. will install a reverse osmosis system or Charger water softener in your Elgin area home.  Tom’s Plumbing serves all of your water treatment needs in the Northwest Suburbs.  Call them today at (847) 697-6444.

Trouble in the Bathroom.

That phrase could take on a number of connotations.  The truth is, bathrooms are frequently used and under-appreciated.  Your day begins and ends in the bathroom.  When a component of that room malfunctions you and your family suffer a set-back.  Maybe it is the toilet, or perhaps the sink, even the tub or shower.  You don’t appreciate your bathroom until something goes wrong.

Unless you are a trained, experienced plumber you may not know if the problem is minor or major.  Then again, maybe there is no problem whatsoever and you are just wanting to remodel that important area of your home to make it as convenient and modern as you can afford.  Once again, a plumbing professional is a necessity.

If you are building, remodeling, or repairing your bathroom please call Tom’s Plumbing Inc.  Tom’s is Elgin’s premier bathroom repair and remodeling professional in the Northwest suburbs.  This is a great time of year to have the pros at Tom’s Plumbing come to your home for an estimate.  Give Mike Curce and his team a call today at (847) 697-6444.

Oh Snap…It Seemed to Happen Overnight.

One day it was 85 degrees then, suddenly it was 40 degrees.  That is how quickly things can change around Chicagoland.  Autumn is just about here followed by a long, grueling winter.  What is the status of your boiler and radiator?  I will bet you haven’t given it much, if any thought since last April.

Soon, that thermostat in your home will have to answer the bell.  Will your castle be properly heated in the months to come?  Do you have all of the hot water that you need?  Look for leaks around your boiler.  Check the water level.  When the radiator is running is it making noises?  Maybe the pilot light will not ignite.

Winter in the Northwest Suburbs is simply too brutal to be toyed with.  You really should call Tom’s Plumbing.  Mike Curce and his team are Elgin’s boiler and radiator repair experts.  They will troubleshoot any problems and beat the big freeze-out!  Do it now…you know we have had sub-freezing nights in October.  Call Tom’s Plumbing Inc. at (847) 697-6444.

Galvanized Pipes…Be Gone!

If you have lived in the Elgin area and are a homeowner you may be aware that those old galvanized pipes that have held your plumbing together are now old and outdated.  How old is your home?  In the Northwest Suburbs galvanized piping goes back to the 1950’s and was the only logical choice for decades.

These old pipes crack and corrode over time.  The result, of course, is leaking throughout your plumbing system.  At this point, you really only have two choices.  Either call a plumber for frequent emergency repairs…OR simply have your castle re-piped.  The latter will, in the long run, save you time and $$$$$!

Make the right decision now.  Have those old galvanized pipes replaced with new copper ones.  It will not only give you peace of mind, but add value to your home.  Choose the right plumber to do the job.  That is Tom’s Plumbing Inc.  We are the Elgin area’s residential copper repiping experts and have been for many years.  Call for an appointment today at (847) 697-6444.
