PEX and the Home Inspection

June 22nd, 2018|Home Inspection, HVAC, Plumbing 101, Water Leaks|

PEX - easier, cheaper, and more pliable than copper. But while generally assumed to be an adequate replacement for copper, during a home inspection it is imperative to know whether or not it is acceptable as a water supply piping material This creates a potential defect during the home inspection prior to a purchase. First, the very use of PEX may not be approved as acceptable to code. Will PEX alone be considered a code violation? Most likely not, as defects and code violations are not exactly the same. Depending on the town and the code on their books, it seems [...]

Muccia Plumbing: When You REALLY Need a Plumber

March 25th, 2018|Safety, Water Leaks, When You Really Need a Plumber|

The One Tool Homeowner There are all sorts of plumbing problems facing homeowners, business owners, and condo/townhouse owners. Because of the technology continually built into plumbing, water, and heater and/or cooling controlling devices, these problems can become far more of a project than in the past.  While it's likely that a simple clog can be dealt with fairly quickly using a plunger which we highly recommend as your very #1 plumbing tool. From there, one pair of channel lock pliers won't really fix too many of today's issues, though it can help tighten a supply valve. And to go a step further, [...]

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 [...]

Treating Your Water Heater Like It’s Your Car

May 29th, 2017|Water Leaks|

When it comes to keeping autos maintained, few people ignore the manufacturer’s recommendations. For example, many cars built in the last 5-7 years, alert the driver to remaining oil life. It’s a common to hear friends and neighbors state “My car is due for an oil change, I need to get that scheduled.” Additional maintenance most people also include is brake pads, wiper blades, the engine air filter, and the cabin air filter as part of scheduled car care. It is a simple concept. To avoid an unexpected repair due to a clogged filter or low/dirty oil and filter, maintenance [...]

Where’s That Water Coming From?

May 23rd, 2017|Water Leaks, When You Really Need a Plumber|

During the heating season, when your gas or oil fired hot water furnace is running, you might be surprised to find a wet floor starting right below a long copper pipe towards the back of your system. This pipe is connected to what is called a blow off valve which is designed to relieve pressure by allowing excess water to “blow off” or get expelled systematically. There are three components that usually lead to this problem, and for more years than I care to remember I always recommend replacing them all at the same time. First is the blow off [...]
