Have You Been Thinking About Your Home’s Drain Pipes Lately?

Of course, you haven’t.  Not unless there has been an obvious problem lately.  Over the course of several years, the average homeowner or apartment tenant is bound to need some form of drain pipe maintenance.  Naturally, the frequency of such occurrences can be minimized with some basic, timely drain upkeep.

The types of home drain pipes that are most typically seen today are either made of copper or plastic polyvinyl chloride (commonly referred to as PVC).  Another type of drain pipes are sometimes encountered in pre-1960 homes, such as drain/waste/vent (again, commonly referred to as DWV) piping made of iron or steel.

Having this knowledge is nice, to be sure.  Knowing whom to call for piping and repair is far more important.  That company in and around Elgin, Il, is Tom’s Plumbing.  By now, if you own a home in the Northwest Suburbs you know Tom’s for their reliability and longevity in serving our communities.  For any drain pipe problems just call Ton’s Plumbing at (847) 697-6444.

RU Ready for RO?

Reverse osmosis, that is.  How does it work?  It starts with desalination.  That five-syllable word is the process of removing salt from seawater.  In order to separate water from salt to make it safe to drink, it must go through the reverse osmosis process.  Reverse osmosis occurs when pressure is applied to a highly concentrated solution.

What makes it so special, anyway?  When it comes to water filtration and getting the best quality water to drink, reverse osmosis can really make a difference.  Reverse osmosis systems work to help remove minerals that may cause hard water, bacteria, sediment and other impurities.  So, again we ask RU ready for RO?

If you are considering cleaner healthier drinking water for you family in any further Northwest Suburban Chicago home, you should contact Tom’s Plumbing.  They have been installing reverse osmosis systems in Elgin area homes for decades.  Maybe you should be next?  Just call Tom’s Plumbing at (847) 697-6444.
