Scams are everywhere these days with the all-pervasive internet they infiltrate our everyday lives. They even happen in the plumbing industry. I guess it is no surprise, as the Northwest Suburbs grow there are more homeowners who simply do not have a grasp of what happens when the have a plumbing problem.
As usual, the elderly are at the greatest risk. Listen to the questions that plumbers are asking you. Employees of big companies will ask questions such as “do you live by yourself?”. Technicians will travel in pairs and go to separate areas of your home to “invent” problems. Check their background before you hire them.
There are ways to vet your plumber, such as the Better Business Bureau. Tom’s Plumbing Inc. has been serving the Elgin area’s plumbing needs for decades.

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.
