The Pros and Cons of Gas Vs. Electric.

Let’s start with the obvious, the typical lifespan of a water heater is between 8 and 15 years, so it is likely that most homeowners in the Chattanooga area will have to replace theirs at least one time over the years. All Home Plumbing will help you decide between gas or electric…or even tankless if you wish.

A few of the pros of a gas water heater are…lower energy costs, the water heats up faster, and will work during a power outage. A few of the electric water heater benefits are…a lower cost up front, there will probably be less maintenance, and there should be little or no safety concerns.

All Home Plumbing of Chattanooga has been installing water heaters of all types since the beginning of the 21st century. We won’t try to sell you, but rather advise you, about which water heater is best for you. Have one of our experienced plumbers come to your home in Chattanooga by calling (423) 598-1466.

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.

Tank vs. Tankless.

It may sound like a titanic battle between two wrestlers, but in this case, it is the battle of the water heaters. Every home and business in the Chattanooga area needs one.
