Water. It’s One of the Most Important Things to Sustain Life on Earth.

And though much of the earth is filled with water, water issues still plague worldwide health. For instance, close to 2.5 billion people do not have access to adequate sanitation. Close to three quarters of a billion people do not have access to clean water. And 6 to 8 million people die each year from the consequences of water related diseases.

But that’s the rest of the world. That’s not right here in America, right?
Think again. Water scarcity, water pollution, and water quality are all coming into question as we move forward in time.

Before water reaches your home, it goes through an intense water treatment process designed to remove the bad and leave the good. Chemicals such as chlorine or chloramine are added to neutralize bacteria, viruses, parasites and other contaminants that can be harmful to our health. It also goes through a filtration process that eliminates sediment and dirt.

While our national water filtration system does remove many of the things that have been known to be harmful in the past, there is only so much a nationwide water filtration system can do. That is why many homeowners are taking it upon themselves to go the next step in making sure their drinking water is as safe as it can be.

Are you thinking of taking the next step with your water treatment process?  Contact Jo-Mi Plumbing serving all of West Los Angeles at (310) 473-8111.  Ask the experts about an affordable and healthy water filtration system for your home today!

What Steps Should You Take When Shopping for a New Water Heater?

Before you shell out hundreds for a storage-tank heater or thousands for a tankless or solar model, see whether your old water heater can be fixed. A corroded storage-tank model is history. But a leaky drain or pressure-relief valve or a burned-out heating element can often be fixed. Rule of thumb: Consider a repair if the labor cost (which warranties often exclude) averages less than $50 per year over the years left in the warranty. Otherwise, buy a new one, especially if the warranty has run out.

Once you have done your due diligence to determine which water heater is the right one for your home, make sure that you contact JO-MI Plumbing in West Los Angeles.  They will help you with your decision to repair or replace your water heater. 

JO-MI Plumbing and Solar Inc. of West Los Angeles has one major priority…to save you money!  Installing a tankless water heater will ensure that.  This breakthrough technology heats only the amount of water needed - unlike those inefficient old tanks - drastically lowering your energy bills.  Not only that, but they take up far less room than tanks, last nearly twice as long, and can be mounted on virtually any wall in your home.  Call JO-MI Plumbing today at (310) 473-8111.
