Happy Friday everyone!
We wanted to share these photos of a bathtub faucet we replaced. This is an older tub that had a faucet with three separate valves. One valve turned on the faucet, and the other two valves were for adjusting hot and cold water temperature. The valves were broken, which could make the water temperature fluctuate even when a toilet flushed! With these older set-ups, Hellgate Plumbing can still find a solution!
We replaced the old faucet and valves with a new Moen faucet head and valve cover plate. This cover plate allowed us to cover the other old valves that will no longer be used.
Call us today if you have a similar set-up and want us to install a new faucet and cover plate!
Hellgate Plumbing wants to share some pictures from a customer project involving Erie zone valves, a Tekmar zone control, and a Taco ECM smart pump. Even with an older boiler system, we still have the ability to modernize these boiler elements. Updating these elements can help the system perform better, and it can help decrease operating energy levels.
Call us today if you need any of these elements replaced for your boiler system!
Hellgate Plumbing installs several water heaters every month. There are several occasions where our technicians are called out to repair a water heater, but end up replacing the unit altogether because they find other issues with the system.
Hellgate Plumbing has general tips and signs about your water heater needing repair or replacement:
• The water heater is over 10 years old
• The water heater is leaking
• Hot water runs out at a faster rate compared to previous years
• Water is discolored or has weird odor
• The water heater makes loud popping noises during the heating stage
• Water is luke warm instead of hot
• Hot water pressure is decreasing, very low
• Frequent fluctuations in water temperature (changing from luke warm, to very hot, to cold)
• Corrosion occurring near the bottom of the water heater
If you think your water heater is experiencing any of these issues listed above, call Hellgate Plumbing to help repair or replace your water heater today!
Happy Friday everyone, and more importantly, Happy HVAC day!!
We wanted to share this picture of a furnace filter we discovered at a residential home. As you can see, this filter hasn’t been changed out in a very long time. With this much dirt and dust piled up in the filter, it could easily affect the efficiency and life of your furnace, along with affecting the air quality. We strongly recommend residential owners to replace their filters once every few months, or even once a month if you have several animals and lots of activity. Replacing a filter can be a easy thing to miss, but it can be a simple game changer for your furnace’s life down the road.
