The Big Plumbing Jobs.

This is where you need to choose carefully, and by experience and reputation.  It’s one thing to fix a toilet or replace a water heater.  It may be a far bigger project to repair or replace plumbing fixtures in commercial buildings.  Commercial plumbing involves installation, repair, and maintenance to commercial spaces like office buildings, theaters, malls, etc.

Business owners…here are some tips before you make that call –

1.  Experience…there is no substitute for it.
2.  The proper licensing and solid insurance.
3.  Are they truly qualified based on past work?
4.  Customer service and price.

You can check all of these boxes and more when you call the commercial plumbing professionals at Tom’s Plumbing Inc.  After decades of commercial plumbing experience, they have proven over and over again to make deadlines, estimate the job accurately, and keep you on budget.  Discover this for yourself.  Call Tom’s Plumbing Inc serving Elgin and the Northwest Suburbs of Chicagoland at (847) 697-6444.

Pay Attention to your Boiler.

As the seasons change in Suburban Chicagoland, remember that hard-working boiler in your home.  We don’t give much thought to our central heating system. We always expect it to work, pumping out a continuous supply of heating and hot water. If something develops, a broken boiler can cause untold headaches, throwing our homes into chaos.

Here are some common boiler problems –

1.  The hot water stops being hot.
2.  Leaking or consistent dripping.
3.  Unusual gurgling or banging noises.
4.  The pilot light goes out.
5.  Pressure is reduced.

There are others, but if one of these is evident in your boiler you probably already have problems.  Problem solved!  If you live in Elgin, Bartlett, Streamwood, and the surrounding area of the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago call the boiler repair and replacement experts at Tom’s Plumbing Inc.  That number is (847) 697-6444.

Don’t Let your Faucets Freeze.

It may seem weird to talk about it now, but the time will come soon enough when winter weather hits and outdoor faucets freeze.  As water freezes, it expands and as it expands it can produce thousands of pounds of pressure per square inch. This pressure is what causes a water pipe to rupture.  It is just a scientific fact!

The surest way to prevent your outside faucet from freezing is to disconnect all of your outside hoses.  Now that is the smart move when the temperature drops drastically. Those of us who have lived in Chicagoland’s Northwest Suburbs will remember how quickly late summer turns into early winter in the blink of an eye.

If you have any plumbing emergency in our area a professional plumber is the safest and surest way to guarantee that the job is done right the first time.  Those pros are the teammates of Tom’s Plumbing Inc.  Mike and his staff have taken pride for many years in solving plumbing problems throughout Elgin, Dundee, Bartlett, Streamwood, St. Charles, etc.  Give them a call anytime at (847) 697-6444.

Memories of Floods Past.

It was not that long ago…August 22, 2014.  Do you remember that day?  St. Charles got five and a half inches of rain in just over 24 hours.  If you think that the Northwest Suburbs can’t flood in August, you would be dangerously mistaken!  Was it a surprise?  Sure it was, but Chicagoland weather is anything but predictable.

During a storm, excess water must be pumped away from your home.  That task is efficiently handled by a hard-working sump pump.  It’s one that has been maintained and is ready for use at a moment’s notice.  If you are not sure about the health of your sump pump you should have it inspected BEFORE an emergency.

Tom’s Plumbing Inc. has been repairing and installing sump pumps in homes and businesses around Elgin, St. Charles, Bartlett, etc. for more than 30 years.  If your sump pump is more than 6 years old, then seriously consider replacing it.  At least let the plumbing pros from Tom’s inspect it.  Call for an appointment at (847) 697-6444.
