How Best to Handle Flooding and Water Damage

Monday, April 20th, 2020

leaking-pipeFor a state that doesn’t exactly see too much rain, flooding can be a pretty big issue for us. Every once in awhile, the rain comes in hard and we are left drenched and the areas around our homes are sometimes so oversaturated that they can’t handle all the water, leaving it to pour into our kitchens, living rooms, and garages.

Thankfully these incidents are fewer and further between than some of the other sources of home flooding that we encounter. We would like to touch on one in particular: floods caused by leaking pipes. We want to take a flood at this cause of home flooding because it is quite preventable, especially with our help.

For now though, if you are dealing with a flooded home, we want you to have the resources to help you deal with the situations.

Why is My Water Meter Running?

Monday, April 6th, 2020

You have been enjoying the occasional sun and warmth that has been hitting California and doing some gardening. The last time you went out to do some watering in your garden though, you noticed that your water meter seemed to be even more eager to get things wet than you are. By this, we mean that even after your hose is turned off, your water meter is still happily running on its own.

It’s springtime so it isn’t really the season for spooky things, but if this occurrence seems concerning to you, you can rest assured that your reaction is appropriate. Why? Because a water meter that is running on its own is a sign that you have a problem with your plumbing in Ontario, CA and you should reach out to a team of professionals for assistance in getting the issue diagnosed and resolved.

Can My Sewer Line Get Clogged?

Monday, February 24th, 2020

sewer-coverLet’s be honest for a moment here: clogs are a pain to deal with. They literally put a stop to operations around your home and often it takes extra time to deal with them properly. The worst is when nothing you are doing gets rid of them.

Thankful our team of emergency plumbers in Ontario, CA can handle even the worst clogs in your home. But we also like to make sure that our customers understand what is causing the problems so they can avoid them. While we are always available we know that having to call a plumber every month is less than ideal.

With that in mind we want to touch on the subject of clogs because the source of the problem isn’t always what, or rather where, you might think. Your clog may be deeper than you expect, all the way in your sewer line. And trust us when we say that a sewer line clog will not be phased by caustic drain cleaners.
