What Is a Video Pipe Inspection Used For?

June 15th, 2020

cracked-corroded-leaking-pipeIf you were around in the ’80s and ’90s it is likely that you owned or at least saw one of those bulky video cameras that people used to use to record video at different events. Now, while it was fun to be able to have multiple little tapes to choose from for embarrassing family video night, we are definitely grateful that video camera technology has evolved beyond these bigger cameras. As cameras got smaller and technology improved it allowed people like us to offer our clients a greatly helpful service known as video pipe inspection.

Imagine how hard it would have been back in the day to try to use your old video camera to look into the pipes and drains of your home! It would have been impossible, which is why it is so great that these modern cameras are small and versatile–it allows us to better do our job.

If you’ve never heard of a video pipe inspection and how it can help your plumbing in Madison, MS, we would be happy to give you some extra information here.

How to Tell You Have a Struggling Water Heater

May 18th, 2020

Cool showers are great to help you lower your internal temperature after you go on a run or get back from a heavy gym session. Icy cold showers that are involuntary and unexpected, on the other hand, are far less enjoyable.

A water heater that isn’t heating shouldn’t always be a lost cause–more often than not it is fixable when you schedule your repairs with a professional plumber.

Even better, you can watch out for certain indicators that your water heater is struggling so you can get it fixed before it completely loses the ability to produce warm water.

We Can Help You Combat Allergies This Spring

May 4th, 2020

pollenOh, spring. It is a season of milder temperatures, slowly lengthening days, and the anticipation of summer. It can be both a wonderful season of transition and one of ah…ah…..ACHOO….allergies. As great as spring can be with its warming weather and its beautiful burst of flora, all that extra plant growth also translates to an increase of pollen, dirt, and dust which spells trouble for those of us with allergies.

Spring, also known to those of us with overactive immune systems as allergy season, can be nice—but it can also be a time of year when a lot of people are more-than-willingly holed up at home trying to wait out the wave of pollen. Unfortunately, even home may not be the safest place for this if you don’t have a way to stop all those allergens from getting inside.

We are happy to tell you though that there is a solution to your home allergy qualms in the form of indoor air quality systems in Jackson, MS.

What Is a Slab Leak?

February 24th, 2020

cracked-foundationIt isn’t uncommon to have to deal with pinhole leaks a few times in your life. Pipes are liable to wear out over time, after all.
