You read that question and the first thing that popped into your head was money, right? Well, you’re partially correct: you shouldn’t spend too much on your water heater when the option of replacing it is more cost-effective. But we’re not just talking about money.

It’s Not Too Late for Furnace Maintenance!

December 27th, 2021

If you’re playing any kind of sport or physical activity, it’s important to do some stretches and to stay hydrated.

Are Lead Pipes an Emergency?

October 4th, 2021

Lead has been used in pipes since the days of ancient Rome. It’s a naturally occurring mineral that can easily be formed and constructed into pipe materials for homes, but there’s a big caveat to this—it’s poisonous.

If you’ve got lead pipes that are transporting water to your sinks, shower, or other appliances, then you need the help of an emergency plumber in Sewell, NJ to completely replace them.

However, not all lead pipes are created equal. While old pipes should definitely be replaced by newer, more reliable ones, you might not have to worry as much about lead pipes if they’re not threatening your clean water.

Let’s talk more about the specifics below, and be sure to call our emergency hotline if your lead pipes are leaking or endangering your family.
