Is your water heater adequate?
Since water heating is a thermodynamic process using energy source to heat water above its initial temperature and comprise of parts that can fail, maintaining its hot water production is crucial to your home needs. Typical domestic uses of hot water are for cooking, cleaning, bathing, and space heating. Commercial applications include both hot water and heated water to generate steam. Water heaters, boilers and heat exchangers are the mechanical processes used to heat water for a variety of domestic and commercial uses. Water heaters come in two basic forms: tanks and tankless.
Some of the more popular domestic water heaters are: conventional tank water heaters, electric water heaters and gas fired water heaters.
I've got a serious problem with my toilet. Toilets are probably the most under appreciated appliance in the home, but get the most attention when they don't operate properly. A toilet is a plumbing fixture and disposal system primarily intended for the disposal of bodily wastes. There are two basic types of toilets; the dry toilet and the wet toilet. The wet toilet is the most common type and is used in most residential homes. The dry toilet needs no plumbing for water input or evacuation, but is often occupied with some ventilation system.
There are three parts to a toilet, a water tank, the bowl, and the siphon tube. A toilet is ready for use when its water tank is full to the brim, roughly 2 gallons of water. This is the part of the toilet that sets against the wall above the bowl. Inside the tank are refill tubes, overflow tubes, and a float and a stopper. When you flush the toilet, a chain attached to the handle and the stopper is pulled, and the stopper is removed from the pipe into which the tank water flows. The water from the tank is pumped directly into the bowl. Once the water is removed, the stopper goes back into place so the tank can be refilled.
Drip, drip, drip. Faucets are a very important part of the water delivery system in your home. A faucet is a generic term that refers to a valve that controls the release of liquids. The physical characteristic of faucet installations that differentiate a faucet from other like valves is the lack of any type of mechanical thread or fastener. Most home faucet installations used for baths, showers, sinks and basins provide separate hot and cold water valves. In which case, hot and cold water from the two valves are mixed together before reaching the faucet, allowing the water to emerge at any temperature between that of the hot and cold water supplies.
I'm not getting the circulation that I need. Pumps are used throughout society for a variety of purposes, irrigation, water supply, gasoline supply, air conditioning systems, refrigeration (usually called a compressor), chemical movement, sewage movement, flood control, marine services, etc. Because of the wide variety of applications, pumps have a variety of shape and sizes; from very large to very small, from handling gas to handling liquid, from high pressure to low pressure, and from high volume to low volume. Pumps are commonly rated by horsepower, flow rate, outlet pressure in feet, and inlet suction in suction feet of head. The head can be simplified as the number of feet or meters the pump can raise or lower a column of water at atmospheric pressure. Installing, and maintain and servicing pumps can mean the difference between a smooth running system and a mess. Some representative examples of pumps include: water pumps, sump pumps and sewage pumps.
I love my bath time. Many of today's bathrooms feature an assortment of shower and tub layout designs, locations and purpose. Most are conventional tub and shower combinations, while others may feature ornate separate designs with a variety of water jets, shower heads and faucet designs. Even though their designs may vary, shower and tubs are still devices that are tied to a sanitary sewer system and are used primarily for hygiene purposes. They incorporate a hot and cold water line and drainage system. Shower drain repair continues to be one of the most common household clogging issues.

My sink is clogged. Are you in need of a garbage disposal repair? A garbage disposal or food waste disposer and waste disposal unit are they are often referred is a device, usually electrically-powered, installed under a kitchen sink between the sinks drain and the trap which shreds food waste into pieces small enough to pass through your homes plumbing system. Because this involves a mechanical piece of equipment and is ultimately tied to your sanitary sewer or septic tank system, plumbing problems may occur. At present some 47 percent of the homes in the United States utilize a garbage disposal.
Scraps of food comprise between 10 percent and 20 percent of the average household waste. There has been an increasingly problematic issue associated with disposal or leftover food, as it relates to, municipal waste disposal, public health concerns, sanitation and environmental problems. If you treat food waste as a liquid (since its roughly 70 percent water), then modern waste water plants can more effectively process the organic solids, which is an environmental boost. This also minimizes the amount of waste that will eventually end up in the landfill, decomposing and generating methane gas. Methane gas is thought to be a major contributor to global warming and is some 21 times more toxic than carbon dioxide. Should you experience a garbage disposal that doesn't work; you can contact Cardinal Services, where our plumbers are expert in the repair, installation and maintenance of garbage disposals.
