When to Replace Galvanized Pipes.

Galvanizing is a metallurgical process used over the past 150 years to coat steel or iron with zinc to inhibit corrosion. The life span of galvanized pipe used for water delivery is about 40 years. You can probably imagine that it was “the way to go” many years ago. Galvanized pipes have seen their day.

This is the era of copper. Copper Plumbing pipes are very durable. They will last for dozens of years. They are also weather resistant so you can use them outside of the house as well as the inside. Maybe best of all, they are corrosion resistant, and will not burn in case of fire.

To learn more about if, when, and how much it will take to modernize your castle with copper piping call Elgin’s repipe professionals Tom’s Plumbing Inc. Tom’s serves most of the Northwest Suburbs of Chicagoland with plumbing repair, replacement, and emergencies in general. This time call Tom’s Plumbing Inc. at (847) 697-6444.

Is it Getting Colder in there?

Whether it is your home, or your employees are complaining it may be getting colder INSIDE as it stays cold outside.  That should NOT be the case!  Are you having thermostat issues in your home or office?  The idea here is to avoid an emergency.  Please get your boilers and radiators checked before it advances to that point.

Some things to look for –

1.  Any leaks around your boiler
2.  The pilot light won’t ignite or stay lit.
3.  The thermostat is not working as well as it did.
4.  Low water level in your boilers.
5.  Noise, that will tell you a great deal.

The answer, before an emergency arises in your home or office is to call a pro.  The Northwest Suburban team of boiler repair and troubleshooting professionals are at Tom’s Plumbing Inc. serving Elgin and the surrounding area.  Winter has long way to go.  Why not stay comfortable?  Call Mike and his team today at (847) 697-6444.
