While the wonders of modern plumbing are myriad, seeing a plumber in your home is never wonderful. That’s because said visit is usually precipitated by something going wrong. Plumbing systems are complex. Add to the fact that so much of your plumbing is invisible–behind walls, between floors, and in the basement—and it’s easy to see why it’s important to call in the experts whenever trouble strikes.
What you don’t see may hurt you
We’re all familiar with the common plumbing repairs of faucets and shower bodies, leaking pipes beneath the kitchen sink, and the common running toilet. But, attached to these common household fixtures (and buried in the walls) are separate piping systems for hot and cold water distribution, waste and storm drainage, gas distribution, and the all-important ventilation–without which drainage doesn’t flow properly.
RB Plumbing specializes in the repair and maintenance of all these invisible systems. With extensive experience working in buildings, troubleshooting skills are like a sixth sense to us. (One happy client once referred to us as “The Plumbing Whisperer.”) Tracking down complex problems and knowing when, where, and how to open a wall is our specialty.
Common plumbing system problems we solve include:
Leaks can occur at any point in a system and often are very tricky to troubleshoot because the place where the problems present themselves can be a long way from the source. Knowing when and where to open a wall — and doing it with minimal damage and expense is almost an art form. And it’s one we have mastered.
Lack of Water Pressure or Hot Water
What homeowner hasn’t suffered this problem before work? A multitude of reasons can cause these problems – corrosion in the branch piping or defective valves, faulty fixtures or mechanical equipment, air circulating in the system, a buildup of sediment somewhere, and the list goes on. Whatever the issue, we’ve got our own set of diagnostic protocols and they always work. Faster than you can sing your favorite shower medley, we’ll find the culprit and make things right.
