Drain Cleaning Services
One of the most important preventative services we offer is Grantville drain cleaning. This typically involves using a power snake or hydro-jetting machine to thoroughly clean all the drains in your home. The walls of your drain pipes can become caked with soap residue, dirt, grease, and waste. Together with hair, food remnants, and other debris, this is a recipe for clogs. Clogs will slow or stop completely the water going down your drains.
Routine drain cleaning is ideal for preventing clogs. Other measures you can take are to install mesh drain stoppers or hair catchers in your sinks and tubs, use an enzymatic drain cleaner to eliminate buildup and be extra prudent about what goes down the drain.
Never put grease, coffee grounds, bones, pasta, stringy vegetables, paint, or clay down the drain. Do not flush anything but water and waste down the toilet; even products that are labeled as flushable do not deteriorate over time and can cause clogs.
Of course, clogs are a common issue that can occur even with a well-maintained system. Because of this, we offer a convenient maintenance plan to keep up with your plumbing care.
New Water Heater Installation
Another convenient service we offer at G.F. Bowman, Inc. is hot water heater repair and replacement. If your water heater is old and doesn’t heat the water properly, or is leaking or making thumping noises, it’s time to look at replacing it.
We provide the installation of electric water heaters, gas water heaters, instant hot water heaters, and tankless water heaters. The benefit of instant or tankless hot water tanks is that they only heat the water as you need it, greatly reducing your energy consumption.
This is the process we follow for hot water tank replacement:
- Deactivate the water heater by either shutting off the power or turning off the fuel.
- Drain the tank completely.
- Loosen and disconnect all fittings.
- Remove the old tank. (We’ll dispose of it for you!)
- Check all fittings and supply pipes; replace if necessary.
- Position the new tank.
- Connect the new tank and properly seal all fittings.
- Restore water supply and power source.
Although installing a new hot water tank may sound easy, it’s best to hire a residential plumbing contractor in Grantville to do the job safely and correctly. Our plumbing contractors at G.F. Bowman, Inc. are experienced in hot water tank replacement and will be happy to help you.
