great customer service over phone and in person. 30 years experience. Went right to work, knew exactly what was going wrong ( in fairness, it was a straight forward repair ) Fixed it well under an hour. Surprisingly affordable. Best in Montco, indeed.

  • Know the location of your main water shut-off valve before a plumbing emergency.  If you have old turn style shut-off valves, consider installing ball valve style shut-off  valves to make plumbing repairs easiler.               
  • Turn off your washing machine shut-off valves when not in use.  Consider installing stainless steel washing machine hoses, single lever shut-off valves and water detector alarms.  
  • Consider turning off all water in house when going on vacation and installing flood detector alarm to alert a neighbor of heater failure in winter.
  • Check the age of your hot water heater.  Heaters usually last approximately 10 to 12 years.
  • When installing a new hot water heater, consider installing a water heater drain pan and water alarm.
  • Turn off all outside faucets in the winter and drain if possible.
  • Carbon monoxide detectors should be installed near fuel burning heating equipment.
  • Test for leaking toilets with a few drops of food coloring in toilet tanks. 
  • If your water has a foul taste or odor, contact us for testing.
  • Replace 6-year old or older sump pumps before they fail.
  • Install battery backup or water backup sump pumps in the advent of power failures.
  • Dryer exhaust vents can cause major fires in the home.  Dryer vents should be cleaned at least twice a year.
