Quiet Those Noisy Pipes

Loud pipes keeping you awake at night? You may need to check your water pressure. If you’re not sure how, just give us a call and we’ll guide you over the phone free of charge.

Inspect Your Washing Machine Hoses

The hoses on your washing machine will wear out over the years, and a broken or burst hose can cause expensive water and flooding damage. Regular inspection can prevent this, and a reinforced washer hose can offer additional inexpensive insurance against these problems. Furthermore, we advise that water supplies to toilets and taps should use stainless braided supplies, and be updated if they currently do not. Older poly and copper supplies can leak or blow apart, resulting in huge floods.
