Let’s Make this Kitchen as Efficient as Possible.

No matter how your Chattanooga area family is put together any given number of family members in the home will all need to eat and drink.  When we do, we automatically expect that refrigerator to give us ice or make ice, or when we hit that switch for water we naturally want water to come out of that little area and fill our cup or glass with water.

When we're done drinking a glass of water or finish with a plate, or container of food, pots and pans, silverware, whatever...we toss them in the sink and they will eventually make their way into the dishwasher.  When we turn the dishwasher on, we automatically assume that it will clean all these dirty dishes for us, and when we open it they will all be clean.

Someone has to install that refrigerator and dishwasher.  That someone is one of our professional plumbers at All Home Plumbing.  Yes, in addition to any plumbing emergencies that may occur in your Chattanooga area home, we handle such mundane tasks as installing kitchen appliances.  Give us a call at All Home Plumbing at (423) 598-1466.

RPZ Made Easy (To Understand)

RPZ valves are also called backflow devices.  What does RPZ mean?  It stands for Reduced Pressure Zone.  Why is it so important to many Chattanooga area plumbing systems?  Well, how about protecting the quality of your drinking water so that it remains free of contaminants and keeps your family healthy?

When a home in our area is equipped with an irrigation system or a fire suppression unit RPZ valves become required items in your castle.  Contaminants can also enter your irrigation system from fertilizer or pesticides that have been sprayed onto lawns.  In a fire suppression system, water sits stagnant or trapped which leads to a build-up of bacteria.

You are required to have your backflow system checked each year.  For that, the home and business owners of the Chattanooga area can always count on All Home Plumbing.  If you live in our area in or around Chattanooga please call All Home Plumbing for backflow checking or replacement at (423) 598-1466.
