Modern Tools of Plumbing

Posted on December 9, 2014 by Melbourne Plumber

For centuries people have been trying to improve plumbing and the ability to get water to the home and take waste away from it. There were some significant advances made in the 1800s and 1900s, but along with a more sophisticated plumbing system, tools to help work on these systems were needed. The tools became more advanced to what plumbers use today. These tools now are so powerful and precise, they make a plumber’s job much easier.

When Your Pipes Rattle

Posted on October 20, 2014 by Melbourne Plumber

Although it generally happens in older homes, even new homes can experience what’s called ‘water hammer.’ This is the noise inside of pipes which is made at points in your plumbing system where water stops abruptly or the water flow changes the direction it’s taking. It can sound like an annoying hammer which seems to start and stop throughout the day and night, although it typically occurs after things such as the washer or dishwasher finishing a cycle. The rattling sound can usually be minimized by doing one of two things. First, you can try to wrap the pipe with ...

When You Need Pipe Replacement by a Professional

Posted on October 3, 2014 by Melbourne Plumber

If you’ve recently purchased an older home or have been living in your home since before to 1970, it is very important to have a licensed master plumber take a look at the home’s piping. Prior to 1970, pipes were often made out of lead, which has health hazards. Water passing through lead pipes isn’t harmful since it doesn’t have time to absorb the lead. What is dangerous is when the water is stagnant in the pipes, waiting for someone to turn it on. When the water sits it begins to absorb the lead, and as a person later goes ...

Business Break Rooms

Posted on September 9, 2014 by Melbourne Plumber

Most offices and businesses have break rooms for their employees to relax or eat lunch in while on break. While this makes sense for everyone, the bad thing is that many employees don’t treat the sink at work the way they do their own at home. People are more likely to throw excess food down the garbage disposal at work, not worrying about whether or not it’s good for the sink, the pipes, or the disposal. When you have multiple people doing this, there’s likely to be a point in time where the disposal can’t keep up and the sink ...

As any homeowner knows, issues arise that need to be taken care of. This is especially true with plumbing, because rarely do people think about it unless there is a problem.

Posted on July 5, 2014 by Melbourne Plumber

There is nothing worse than having a plumbing problem. When pipes won’t drain right or there’s a clog that nothing seems to fix, the only solution is to call a qualified Master Plumber. Not only are they experienced at clearing out pipes and replacing old ones, they have the ability to see what is going on with camera inspection.

This lead to expensive work because the pipes oftentimes ...

What is Backflow?

Posted on June 29, 2014 by Melbourne Plumber

Whether you own a home or business, it’s crucial to make sure there is no backflow in any of your pipes. Backflow is the term used to describe dirty, contaminated, non-potable, or sewage waste which is erroneously released into clean water lines which are used for drinking water, or water used by a dishwasher, hot tubs, or pool. Pipes are constructed with backflow prevention devices to make sure this doesn’t happen as it could cause severe illness to an individual or population. Backflow can happen in a variety of situations, such as when insecticide attachments are put on hoses and ...
