Once a Year…That’s the Law.

No matter where you set up shop in the Chattanooga area you MUST have a backflow test done on your premises every year…and then certified!  The backflow testing process typically takes about 20 – 30 minutes to complete, if there are no repairs that need to be made.  So, if all is well, it should be a rather painless process.

Why is it so important?  Well, drinking water flows through pressurized water taps from the source to your tap.  It generally flows in one direction but on some occasions, it may flow in the opposite direction, or what is known as “backflow”.  If it runs backward, then it is not suitable for drinking.

To book your annual backflow test call the Chattanooga plumbing experts at All Home Plumbing.  Look for that friendly reminder that you will get from your city.  It will be sent with a backflow test report form a month before it is due.  The next step is easy.  Just call (423) 598-1466 to book your backflow test with All Home Plumbing of Chattanooga.

The Speed of a Jet.

Rather impressive, isn’t it?  Just what is sewer jetting?  When your plumbing that is acting up you find yourself dealing with a seemingly endless string of clogs.   Do you live in an older home in the Chattanooga area with an aging plumbing system?  If only there were some way to restore your pipes and keep them clean into the future. Luckily, we have the technology.

That technology is called sewer jetting.  It is an innovative method plumbers use to maintain the health of the plumbing system and to completely clear out the inside of pipes - even stubborn and hazardous main line clogs.  Plumbing snakes and chemical treatments in many cases are only temporary fixes.  Enter the sewer jet!

When you have a tough plumbing problem (especially in your older Chattanooga area home) call on the sewer jetting experts at All Home Plumbing.  When drains are clogging, All Home Plumbing is your best friend.  Visit their website at allhomeplumbing.com to see all that they do to solve your plumbing problems.  Then call (423) 598-1466.

That Good ‘Ol Reliable Plunger.

A plunger might seem basic, but it may still be the best way to unclog your toilet!  Every household should not be without one, and preferably a plunger with a flange, as these work the best to unclog toilets.  Flat plungers actually work better for drains and showers if you are trying to unclog one of them.

If that fails, then the fun stuff begins –

1.  Baking soda and vinegar…pee yew!
2.  A wet/dry vac.  Don’t try this with a regular vacuum.
3.  Chemicals.  They can damage plumbing and create burns.
4.  Call a plumber.  Still the most reliable and easiest way to unclog a stubborn toilet.

Unclogging a pesky toilet in your Chattanooga area home should be an easy project, but it rarely is…plus it can grow worse over time if you just “plunge” it.  The sure, long term solution is to call the toilet repair experts in the Chattanooga area.  That would be All Home Plumbing.  Don’t become knee-deep in heaven knows what!  Call (423) 598-1466.

When Galvanized Pipes Grow Old.

Over time it is inevitable…your galvanized pipes are old and corroding.  Suddenly rust is blocking off the pipes, reducing your water pressure and even contaminating the water itself.  If you’re not careful, corroded pipes can lead to leaks, which then means mold, rot and water damage around your home!

Here are some steps to follow in having your home repiped –


1.  Are you having both hot and cold water pipes replaced?
2.  Be prepared to be deprived of water in your home for up to a week.
3.  Once the job is done the pipes need to be inspected for proper installation.
4.  Large sections of walls will probably need to be replaced.

Repiping is complicated and necessary and should be trusted to a plumbing professional.  The right team for the job in the Chattanooga area is All Home Plumbing.  They have served the area’s plumbing needs for well over a decade.  For that important repiping job call All Home Plumbing at (423) 598-1466.
