Getting Ready for Winter

Mike Muccia's first 4 tips to get ready for winter Mike's Tip #1 In a recent edition of Mike's Kwik-Tip on Facebook, we recommended that you remove the timers off any hose bibs since a quick unexpected freeze will destroy the internal plastic parts. (In English please!) There is a fitting where a hose can be attached to a home water supply (usually more than one) so watering the lawn and garden is simplified. The part that the hose screws onto is called a hose bib.  We received many "thank you"s for that tip, but now that we are in [...]

Heating System Startup

Muccia Plumbing, Heating and AC has already begun to get calls to schedule a heating system startup. It makes sense and it's worth spending a few moments understanding what we do and why you should care. Understanding the complex heating system and why it needs an annual startup Your heating system is a complex machine. It includes a variety of devices that check for fuel pressure, water level, water pressure, valves, zones, pumps and more. These devices and indicators are specific to your system, and are meant to take care of each part of your home or business with a [...]

The Muccia Plumbing AC tune up

How Muccia Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning does a Tune-Up aka air conditioning Start-Up: For Muccia Plumbing, it's that time of the year. Or should I say that OTHER time of the year? Living and working in the NorthEast, we truly pay attention to two seasons - winter, when we need to make sure our heating system is working as designed. And summer, when brutally hot and humid days and nights can make living in New Jersey and the tri-state area clearly painful. This edition of Mike's Tips, we focus on what we, as trained air conditioning techs, do to ensure that [...]

NJ Licensed Plumbers: It Really Matters

Everyone, depending on age and education, can feel confident doing handyman jobs around their home, condo or business. One example is dealing with a slow or clogged drain. Most (both male and female) homeowners will take a quick drive to the local home improvement center, and look for something stronger than what is sold in the local grocery store next to bleach and dish detergent. However, when it comes to drains and sewage plumbing, while there are many small things that a regular handyman can do on his or her own, small issues can turn into big problems. And a [...]

Gentle but Important Reminder: Smoke Alarm Battery

Whether your smoke and/or CO2 alarm in wired-in or freestanding, they both have one thing in common - A BATTERY. You can make this Valentine's Day present to your significant other, your folks, your kids, or even YOURSELF! Just because it beeps when you press it does not mean it's providing safety throughout your home. So just before you turn the lights down low, slip into a more comfortable outfit and open the Champagne, do one thing first. Get either you or your "signifcant-other"  up on a ladder and replace the battery (DO NOT BUY CHEAP OR OLD BATTERIES) Hang [...]

Mike’s Plumbing Tips: Christmas Edition

Seasons Greetings! If you read Mike's Tips for Thanksgiving, many still apply for Christmas (and New Year's Eve too!). Here's some more details to help you avoid a problem during the dinners and parties you host and attend. We've divided them into Bathroom Goals and Kitchen Goals The Bathroom Goals Goal number 1 in the bathroom(s) is to eliminate anything that might accidentally fall in to the toilet bowl. Likewise, child-age guests, wanting to see holiday knick-knacks flushed out to sea, should be hindered by putting anything tempting up high and away. Goal number 2 is what one of my friends call "TP Mittens". This [...]

Bergen County NJ Hard Water

Hard Water. Most people think that hard water is primarily in the Midwest. In reality, there are parts of New Jersey, many in #BergenCounty towns, where hard water zones are prevalent. Unfortunately, New Jersey homeowners who live or own businesses in hard water zones can experience one of the most frustrating plumbing issues. So, what is hard water? Generally, it’s water from a household faucet (tap water) with an atypically high mineral count. Why does one town have hard water and one close by does not is purely the composite of the soil and stone bed. Such geographical features like [...]

DIY Plumbing and Toilets: Safety is Priority 1

These days, learning by watching a YouTube video is available for nearly every possible service a shade tree mechanic can perform on an automobile. Likewise, there are good hearted folks on YouTube sharing information on Do-It-Yourself (D-I-Y) plumbing projects. For some things, if you’re a bit mechanically inclined, have some basic tools, and a Home Depot or Lowes close by, you might be OK for some of the simpler homeowner projects. For example, if your toilet is running all day and all night, despite several attempts at jiggling the handle, you may be able to save a few dollars and [...]
