So, what constitutes a plumbing nightmare? A plumbing nightmare is different for everyone. For some, it might be a water heater that needs replacing. For others, it could be a broken pipe that caused flood damage. Whatever the case, it’s usually an unplanned plumbing emergency that dips into our budget. It also means taking time off work to meet the plumbers. What can a homeowner do to lessen the blow when something arises? Chuck Swindoll once said, “Attitude is everything; life is10% what happens to you, and 90% how you react to it.” So, try to take away some positives from our situation.
Get A New Water Heater And Save Up to 30% In Energy Cost
Think about this for a minute. Most plumbing emergencies that occur, when repaired, it will add long term value to your home. For example, if your water heater needs replacing, the newer models will save you up to 30% in energy costs compared to models built ten years ago. An Energy Star labeled model will save you up to 8% in costs over standard models. Not to mention, other features such as a larger storage tank that will accommodate a larger family.
New Pipes Will Last 50 years Or Longer
Maybe you finally said, “Yes,” to replace the old pipes in your home, and you’re worried about the cost, downtime and everything else associated with it. Here is the upside to excellent water pressure. No more clanging pipes, no more pipe leaks, and there’s clear water coming from the pipes. Additionally, they are expected to last for at least 40 to 50 years. At Big B’s Plumbing, we have a dedicated team of repipe professionals. A two-bathroom home is done in a day, and three & four-bathroom homes are completed within two days.
The Latest Technology Is A Trenchless Sewer Line
Another plumbing set back that you could be considered a plumbing nightmare is a broken sewer line. A homeowner first starts to think of their landscaping being torn up and of course, the cost. The positive side is that no longer does a plumbing company need to tear up your landscaping to get to your sewer line. The latest technology is a trenchless sewer line. Your Big B’s Plumbing contractor will enter your old sewer line by digging two holes versus digging a trench through your yard. A felt liner is pulled through the old sewer line, and a special epoxy applied. Using the proper equipment, a new pipe is blown into place, creating a new epoxy sewer line. The new line has a life expectancy of 50 years.
For those homeowners that don’t have the emergency cash set aside, Big B’s Plumbing provides on-the-spot, interest-free financing for one year on approved credit.
