Just because we have been around for fifty years, doesn't mean we aren't cutting edge. In fact, we have all of the latest technology available at our disposal to help service you and your needs.

Our non invasive means of locating damage without having to destroy your home or business is one of our guarantees. We will use a hi power camera attached to a snake to identify the problem and isolate it. In the old days (which we were part of as well) plumbers would have to excavate earth to locate the problem.

Hydro Jetting Is the Most Effective Way to Clean

There are many ways to clean your sewer line and pipes. But there is only one sure proof way. That is Hydro Jetting. What exactly is Hydro Jetting?

This is the most effective method of completely cleaning the inside of a pipeline. Water is pumped through a nozzle at up to 4000 psi to scour the inside of a pipe, removing roots, scale, grease, dirt, and other obstructions.

If you've checked all faucets and tub or shower spouts for leaks and have found none, the next step is to see if your toilet is leaking. This is done by checking the water level to ensure no water is leaking from the tank through the overflow pipe. The fill valve should only fill the tank to within 1" of the top of the overflow pipe or to the "fill lever" stamped on the inside of the tank. You may have to adjust the fill valve if the water level is too high. Next, place a few drops of food coloring in the tank. If the water bowl changes color within 15 minutes of the toilet not being used, the toilet is leaking.
