Re-piping Your Home

Old pipes in your home can become corroded and break down. This can lead to small leaks or an all-out flood. Changing your pipes from cast iron to PVC and CPVC will reduce your risk for breaks and improve your water quality. And if you have old lead pipes in your home, you could be making your family ill. Changing out your pipes can be done all at once or in stages.

Water Heaters

The average life span of a water heater is 11-13 years. This span can be significantly shorter depending on your water quality.
Installation of a new gas water heater requires an inspection in most jurisdictions.

 

Water Softeners

When water contains a significant amount of calcium and magnesium, it is called hard water. Hard water is known to clog pipes and to complicate soap and detergent dissolving in water. Water softening is a technique that serves the removal of the ions that cause the water to be hard, in most cases calcium and magnesium ions. Iron ions may also be removed during softening.

The best way to soften water is to use a water softener unit and connect it directly to the water supply. A water softener is a unit that is used to soften water, by removing the minerals that cause the water to be hard. For information about if a water softener is best for your home, call 301-865-2223.

Water Alert Systems

A water alert system is a way for you to be notified should water be some place other than in your pipes in your home. Some systems are small and simple. They will sound an alarm alerting you to the problem. Other systems are more complex, tie into your water lines and can even engage a shut-off valve, preventing more water from entering. Some of the benefits of these systems are:

Grease Abatement Systems

Fats, oils, and grease (or FOG) are waste products of cooking and meat preparation.  These are normally found in fats from meat, oil, shortening, margarine, butter, dairy products, and sauces.

These FOG products build up in sewer pipes and result in blockages.  Large blockages eventually cause sewers to overflow and basements to back up.

The Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), along with WSSC, require food establishments to control their FOG waste with properly designed grease abatement systems to ensure proper drainage and treatment of municipal wastewater.  This will reduce and eliminate sewage spills and backups, and help food service establishments avoid being shut down and/or receiving hefty fines.

Well Pump Repair and Replacement

We understand that when your well pump stops working you have no water. Whether your pump is 20 feet or 120 feet deep, we can repair or replace it for you.

Sump Pump Installation

Sump pumps are used where basement flooding happens regularly and to solve dampness where the water table is above the foundation of a home. Sump pumps send water away from a house to any place where it is no longer problematic, such as a dry well. Usually hardwired into a home's electrical system, sump pumps may have a backup. Since a sump basin may overflow if not constantly pumped, a backup system is important for cases when the main power is out for prolonged periods of time, as during a severe storm.

There are generally two types of sump pumps — pedestal and submersible. The pedestal pump's motor is mounted above the sump, where it is more easily serviced, but is also more conspicuous. The pump impeller is driven by a long, vertical extension shaft and the impeller is in a scroll housing in the base of the pump. The submersible pump is entirely mounted inside the sump, and is specially sealed to prevent electrical short circuits.

Sump pumps generally don’t need maintenance, however, they should be checked regularly to ensure the motor is still good and the pump is working properly.

Hose Bibs and Yard Hydrants

Hose bibs are the outside spigots that you use when accessing outside water. Yard hydrants are the water lines that stick out of the ground, usually on farms, that have a handle that you lift to access water. These require special attention during cold winter months as they are more likely to freeze. If your hose bib freezes and breaks, it can cause a great deal of damage in your home. We recommend that you turn the water off to the line during winter months. If you don't have a shut-off valve to turn the water off, contact our office today to correct this for you.

Gas Lines for Fire Places, Appliances and Generators

Whether you want to bring a gas line to your house or run a new line inside the house, the technicians of Clarksburg Plumbing can help. Adding a generator to your home can increase your comfort and peace of mind during an emergency. Trusting our technicians will allow you to rest easy that your gas line is put in safely and correctly.

Sewer Ejector Pump Repair and Replacement

Sewage ejector pumps, also called sewage pumps, sanitary sewer pumps or solid waste pumps, are used when there are toilets below the public or private sewer line. If waste can't flow to the sewer line by gravity, the waste has to be lifted to be discharged into the sewer.  These pumps are able to pump solids and liquids from the sump or tank up to the sewer.
