Boise, Nampa and Caldwell's Plumbing Pro's

Maintaining My Plumbing

The average household Nampa plumbing system represents an investment of about fifteen percent of the value of the house.  No part of the house is more important than your plumbing in Caldwell.  Nothing in the house is used more often than your plumbing but most people take it for granted.  Boise Plumbing is not just a convenience any more, it is really much more than that, plumbing is also about public health and safety.  Plumbing in Meridian gets your family drinking water, flushes the dirty water away, keeps your clothes clean and gives you a sanitary place to bathe.  A smoothly functioning plumbing system in Nampa or Caldwell is a pin to health and adds to the convenience of modern living. An ounce of prevention when it comes to plumbing will go a long way toward keeping your home’s plumbing in top working order – and you’ll avoid costly repairs!  Preventative maintenance on your plumbing system is key to having good functioning plumbing in Boise Nampa and Caldwell and long lasting plumbing fixtures.  Regular servicing and flushing of your Boise water heater and checking for plumbing leaks in your crawlspace are key items when it comes to your water bill/utility bill, not to mention if the plumbing leak is on the hot water piping.

Faucets and Sinks

Even small drips in your Boise Plumbing can waste thousands of gallons of water, as much as 150 gallons a day!  Be sure to check under sinks for moisture or small leaks, and always repair leaky faucets right away to avoid wasting water, and also to avoid water damage to your fixtures and pipes. Remove and clean your faucet aerators annually to ensure an even flow.  

Water Heaters

Before doing any maintenance on your water heater yourself, be sure to shut off the power, and read your owners manual. At least once every two years, have your water heater inspected by a service technician. The technician will also check the drain valve for signs of leakage, and the anode rods for corrosion.

Toilets

Toilet leaks in Boise, Nampa or Caldwell can be wasteful and expensive. At least once a year, check your toilet for leaks by adding a small amount of red food coloring to the tank, and then check the toilet bowl later. If the toilet bowl water is colored red, water is seeping through from the tank. If you notice that your toilet frequently clogs up it may be time for a new water closet.  Over time the buildup of calcium and other minerals in the toilets trap way can cause things to hang up on it and clog.  Other issues can be that your toilet in Caldwell, even if new, may have a bad casting and have a piece of porcelain can be hanging down grabbing onto toilet paper.  We also recommend that you NEVER use liquid drain cleaners if you have a problem.  If the problem doesn't clear they can cause severe burns to whomever tries to manually clear the clog.  If you do try chemical drain cleaners please tell your plumber so they can wear protective equipment when handling the toilet.  The other issue with chemical drain cleaners is that if you find one stronger than the stuff at the public stores they can heat up the water hot enough to crack and break the toilet bowl.  If you can not get it with a plunger please contact a professional to help you get it taken care of worry free and quickly.

Garbage Disposals

You can extend the life of your home in Boise's garbage disposal by: Using plenty of cold water when running the garbage disposal.  Making sure you avoid over loading the garbage disposal it and every once in a while put some orange, lemon or lime rind down your garbage disposal  to help with smell and reduce grease build up.  The citric acid has a great smell and cuts grease really well.
