RPZ…1-2-3.

What is RPZ backflow testing? Let the plumbing experts at All Home Plumbing of Chattanooga give you a quick tutorial. Chattanooga plumbing systems are generally designed to keep water at a specific pressure so that it flows normally. Now, if the pressure falls, contaminated groundwater could enter your system, leading to a potentially serious issue known as backflow.

The conditions that can result in a backflow problem may include –

1.  A main break causing the water pressure to drop suddenly.

2.  Fluctuations in the city water main could occur.

3.  It is possible that the fire department may have to tap into a hydrant.

In order to keep this type of backflow from occurring, an RPZ valve must be installed to protect your Chattanooga area home or office water supply. The backflow technician at All Home Plumbing has been certified since the last century. For the experience you rely on call All Home Plumbing at (423) 598-1466.

Time for a New Shower.

That sounds like a great idea for your Chattanooga area home, doesn’t it? Learning how to install a shower surround directly to wall studs is a project many DIY homeowners in the area may think they can do themselves, but think twice. Panels formed as a single moulded unit fit in the bathtub or shower enclosure and are typically used in new construction.

The other type of shower panels, that are often used in bathroom renovations, come as individual panels that connect together and attach to the wall which will form a watertight seal. Of course, you must remove the old shower to make room. You must also pre-fit the shower and mark then drill holes for the valves. That is only the beginning!

Do you want it done perfectly and guaranteed the first time? Then trust the Chattanooga professional shower installers at All Home Plumbing. There are many, many plumbing services that All Home provides. To see them, just visit allhomeplumbing.com on the web. Call them when you are ready at (423) 598-1466.
