Where Will You be in Twenty Years.

Maybe you are not sure about the next 20 days let alone the next 20 years.  What about your water heater?  Where do you think it will be in two decades?  If it is a traditional model it will end up in a Chattanooga area landfill long before that.  But, what about a tankless water heater?  Could it last until the 2040’s?

The answer is an emphatic yes!  Most tankless water heaters have a life expectancy of more than twenty years.  Better than that, they also have easily replaceable parts that extend their life by many more years.  Now, you don’t have to be Albert Einstein to know that is TWICE as long as traditional storage water heaters!

When you add up all the other benefits of a tankless water heater it may be time for you to consider going tankless.  Storage or tankless, you can always count on All Home Plumbing to install it perfectly in your Chattanooga area home.  When it is time to consider a new water heater just call Chattanooga plumber All Home Plumbing at (423) 598-1466.

A System for the Prevention of Flood Control.

A flood control system is used to systematically reduce the risk of damage to a home or basement in the Chattanooga area due to flooding.  This flooding can be from basement cracks, floor drains, through an overwhelmed catch basin, or even up through the connection to the sewer system.

The solution can mean something as simple as installing gutters and/or French drains to divert rain water away from a residence in our area, to an overhead sewer system which can stop sewers from backing up into a home when the city’s sewer is overwhelmed.  Of course, the solutions will vary depending on the property.

In the Chattanooga area if you are looking for a reliable, guaranteed flood control system for your home please call All Home Plumbing.  Of course, the professionals at All Home can advise you on sump pumps, sewage, and even grinder pumps.  Just give them a call today to discuss your options at (423) 598-1466.

Dishwasher…What Dishwasher?

Many people feel that their Chattanooga kitchen is complete without a dishwasher…others, realize that now is the time to add that essential appliance.  Installing a dishwasher in a kitchen that never had one calls for careful planning.  In addition to water, power and drainage, there are design issues to consider such as kitchen traffic patterns and space requirements.

The farther you move a dishwasher from a standard installation, the less convenient it is to use.  Carefully determine the size of opening you'll need to create beneath the countertop.  A dishwasher requires three utility connections to operate efficiently.  The mounting brackets are designed to be screwed securely to the underside of the cabinet or countertop.

Are you capable of all that…and more?  All Home Plumbing is.  For many years All Home Plumbing has been installing new dishwashers, garbage disposals, and refrigerators in Chattanooga area homes.  There really is no one better at it in our area.  Call All Home Plumbing for professional kitchen appliance installation at (423) 598-1466.

Preventing Backflow.

Learning how to test a backflow preventer is very important, since there are over 10,000 reported cases of backflow contamination each year.  Some of them can even be fatal!  Testing for backflow in your Chattanooga area home is NOT an option.  Backflow prevention devices are required by law and must be installed. 

What is in a typical backflow assembly?  Well, it has test cocks and shut-off valves and must be checked yearly and when the unit is installed or when relocating.  There are several types of backflow test equipment that are available from multiple manufacturers.  This is all pretty boring isn’t it?

What you need to know is that in the Chattanooga area the very best place to call to have that mandatory backflow test should be the plumbing pros at All Home Plumbing.  The crew at All Home will run the proper test and hand you the certification for another year.  Call All Home Plumbing for backflow protection at (423) 598-1466.

Run for Cover…The Pipes are About to Burst!

It should not be that dramatic to avoid the damages and expenses caused by burst pipes.  What causes your home’s pipes to burst during the winter?  The basic answer is that the water coming into your Chattanooga home from the outside is colder than it was during the warmer months.  The cold water causes your pipes to contract which can cause the pipe to burst.

Here are some tips in order to prevent disaster –

1.  Keep your faucets dripping in freezing temps.
2.  Direct warm air to the colder areas of your home.
3.  Leave your cabinet doors open where appropriate.
4.  Always disconnect hoses from outside spigots...you’re not using them now anyway.
5.  Seal up any possible leaks that allow cold air in.

Naturally, if you have any sign of burst pipes (or the threat of them) in your Chattanooga area home call us immediately.  We are All Home Plumbing here to minimize or even avoid the potential or real nightmare of burst pipes in your home.  All Home has the plumbers you trust for all of your home’s plumbing emergencies in Chattanooga.  Just call (423) 598-1466.
