Does Anyone at Your Holiday Table Remember the 1950’s?

How about that?  Does anyone gathered at your holiday feast remember when Dwight Eisenhower was President, when Elvis Presley was the hottest thing on the planet except for the “cold war” or when the hula hoop was all the rage?  Are they able to tell stories of what it was like when the first black and white television arrived in their home?

I know, the younger people at the table may well have already taken out their iPhones or rolled their eyes.  This is a time to reminisce.  For older and newer members of the family to share common ground even if it is only how great the food tastes.  Listen to those stories…they’re all we have left of the memories of the 1950’s.

Not so fast!  The 1950’s are alive and well at JO-MI Plumbing.  That’s right, even though we have all of the modern tools and techniques for the 2nd decade of the 21st century, our roots go back to the middle of the 50’s.  Our family has been serving your family in West Los Angeles for over 60 years.  As a matter of fact, the people telling those stories may have been calling JO-MI all those years ago.  Happy Holidays from JO-MI plumbing, proudly serving West LA since 1953.

A Guide to Hydronic Heating.

Homeowners are always looking for a quiet, energy efficient heating system to keep their home comfortable for the entire family.  Hydronic heating systems use water to move heat from where it is produced to where it is needed.  Modern technology allows for the exact comfort settings to be experienced quietly and efficiently.

You have several different options for designing your new radiant system. The basic components of a boiler, liquid, plumbing manifold, tubing, and heat exchanger are the essentials, but there are several ways that this system can be installed and operated. That ranges from tankless water heaters to radiant floors to outdoor hydronic heat.  Consult an expert to see which is right for your particular situation.

In West Los Angeles the right number to call is 310-473-8111.  That is the home of JO-MI plumbing.  They have been serving the plumbing needs of West LA for over 60 years.  Best of all they stay one step ahead of all of the latest technology.  Call them today for more information on Hydronic Heating for your castle.  You’ll be glad you did!

Is a Home Water Filtration System Right For Me?

In the beginning it is important to choose where you want the water to be filtered.  A whole house filtration system filters the water as soon as it enters your home.  Can your home benefit from a whole house water filtration system as opposed to a point-of-use system?  Here are the tips that will help you answer that question.

Do you drink water from more than one tap?  Is it important to your family to have pure water when you are showering?  When you run your appliances such as the dish washer do you want that water to be filtered as well?  If you want to protect your pipes from corrosion then a whole house system is mandatory.

These questions and more can be helpfully answered by your West Los Angeles plumber, JO-MI Plumbing.  For decades your friends at JO-MI have been attending to West LA’s plumbing problems as well as upgrades such as this.  Give JO-MI Plumbing a call today at (310) 473-8111 and discover the virtues of a whole house water filtration system.

Installing Copper Piping.

If the pipes in your home are nearly 2 decades old or even older, chances are it is time to repipe your home’s plumbing.  In the past, homes were built with galvanized plumbing. Over time it deteriorates and rusts. Some telltale signs are your appliances filling up more slowly than they used to, or maybe it’s a lack of pressure in the shower. You may also notice a brownish color to your water. Eventually, this can lead to water that is undrinkable and unsafe.

The reason why this happens is that the diameter of the galvanized pipes will slowly diminish from rust and debris. Over time, you may notice a less than pleasant odor and low water pressure. You may even notice leaks springing up, which could result in mold and further damage to your home.

The solution to this problem is a re-piping of your existing plumbing with copper. This will drastically improve the quality and safety of your home. Putting it off for too long can result in disastrous consequences.  Contact West Los Angeles area JO-MI Plumbing today at 310-473-8111 for more information on replacing your home’s current plumbing with long lasting copper piping.  The future safety of your home and even your family’s health may depend on it.
