It May Not Be a Problem Yet, But it Soon Will Be.

Have you lived in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicagoland for more than a couple of winters?  Then you know what a toll the freezing weather takes on your body, your car, and your home.  When winter hits with full force you will face the real possibility of frozen pipes in your Elgin area castle.

Here are some temporary steps to prevent freezing pipes –

1. Turn the heat up in your home.
2.  Open cabinet and vanity doors so warm air can reach pipes beneath the sinks.
3.  Disconnect garden hoses from outdoor faucets.
4.  Keep your garage door closed.

These are rudimentary steps to avoid frozen pipes, but when it becomes a chronic and even a dire situation that you can no longer tolerate please call on the expertise of Tom’s Plumbing to alleviate the problem.  Frozen pipes will no longer be tolerated…not if you live in the Elgin area!  Call Tom’s Plumbing this winter or anytime at (847) 697-6444.

The ABC’s of RPZ.

What is an RPZ valve test and why does your Elgin area home need one?  Water is normally maintained at a specific pressure to determine water to flow from the tap, shower head, and other valves.  When that pressure falls, there is an unexpected high demand on the water system that can reduce pressure.

Because contaminants can enter your drinking water from various sources at this point it is important to have a plumbing service test the RPZ valve (Reduced Pressure Zone Valve).  The rapid reduction of water pressure in the plumbing system causes an extreme risk of contamination to the water supply from the backflow.  Hence the RPZ test.

The plumbing technicians at Tom’s Plumbing have been conducting RPZ tests for many, many years.  Not only will they perform the tests, but they will perform the tests AND file the paperwork with the proper municipality on your behalf.  Now, that’s peace of mind!  Call Tom’s Plumbing of Elgin for an RPZ test as soon as possible at (847) 697-6444.
