Can you tell me exactly how much this plumbing job will cost me?
In our years of experience, we have found that our customers prefer an accurate price based on their exact plumbing problem. Most phone quotes are subject to change once the service technician sees the job. We don't think that is fair to you. By allowing us to diagnose your plumbing problem in person, you will know exactly what it will take to get the job done.
What is the difference between hard water and soft water?
Parts of Massachusetts have what is commonly referred to as "hard water," and people who live in these areas battle the problems that hard water creates. The most common defense against hard water, which is a nuisance but not a health hazard, is to install a home water softener. Water softening involves exchanging calcium and magnesium minerals present in the water – which cause the hardness – with sodium. As the water softener processes gallon after gallon of hard water on a daily basis, the treatment capability of the softener becomes depleted and must be recharged or regenerated.
What Causes Clogged Drains?
There are a number of common issues that create a need for drain cleaning. Soap all by itself is not a problem, but combine that with hair and there can be an issue. Another common problem is quilted toilet paper, which doesn't break apart as easily as non-quilted brands. Believe it or not, clumped cat litter can also become a major source of clogging if flushed down the toilet. Symptoms that you need drain cleaning include drains that are slow to empty after normal use, garbage disposals that don't eliminate effectively, and problems with normal toilet flushing. Experts recommend trying a bio drain cleaning solution as a preventive measure, but if you have foreign objects or hair in your drains you may require additional drain-cleaning service to fix the problem.
