Keep that Drain Flowing During the Holidays.

You are in charge!  You see, that line running from your house to the city sewer line is YOUR responsibility as a home-owner.  If the drain clogs, a professional is needed to get it flowing freely again.  A variety of issues may be at play such as things that were flushed down the toilet to tree roots or cracked pipes.

We want you to be aware of a couple of obvious things that you can do to avoid a clogged drain.  Never, ever pour grease down the drain.  It is very tempting to do so during your holiday cooking.  Also, don’t use household drain cleaners.  Those substances can and WILL cause damage to pipes.

Fear not…you are not alone!  Tom’s Plumbing Inc. is your drain cleaning expert in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicagoland.  The professionals at Tom’s Plumbing will have your drains flowing freely again in no time.  At the very first sign of a clogged drain in the Elgin area call on Tom’s plumbing at (847) 697-6444.

What is Re-Piping?

It is NOT filling up grandpa’s Meerschaum!  It has everything to do with the continued safety and efficiency of your home’s plumbing system.  Re-piping means replacing the plumbing systems (water supply, drains or gas). This replacement process is referred to as a “repipe” or "repiping”.

As brutally cold weather descends on Chicagoland your pipes will be vulnerable to the extreme cold.  We are experienced on how to lay out the job, order parts, install, and inspect the re-piping process. We have expert patching crews in house.  The important message here is…DO NOT wait until it is too late!

Freezing pipes will bring your household to a standstill.  Before that happens call Tom’s Plumbing Inc. to inspect your home’s piping system.  This way you will have some certainty as to what you may be facing during the months ahead.  I know this is a busy time of year, but include a call to Tom’s in your holiday plans at (847) 697-6444.

Ole’ Man Winter is Coming!

If you have lived in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago for more than a year you already know what to expect over the next several months.  Winter will hit and hit hard.  Maybe you and your family are prepared for the harsh seasonal change, but what about your plumbing and your pipes in general?

Here are some signs that it is time to replace the piping in your home –

1.  Do you see any yellow or brown sediment in your water when you fill up a bucket?
2.  Do you see frequent leakage around pipes?
3.  Are the walls in your home discoloring?
4.  Do you have an older home with lead pipes?
5.  Is the water flow slowing down?

All of these and more, are signs that your home needs to be repiped.  It’s November and there is no waiting for tomorrow!  It is time to call Northwest Chicago’s repiping professionals at Tom’s Plumbing Inc.  The pros at Tom’s have kept Elgin area pipes flowing freely for decades.  Schedule an appointment today at (847) 697-6444.

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.
