How and when to use SharkBite connectors

July 18th, 2020|When You Really Need a Plumber|

Since the advent of SharkBite Copper pipe fittings, we've seen a marked increase in panicky homeowners (and their spouses) due to improper installations by the Do-It-Yourselfer. Here's the real deal for #BergenCountyhomeowners. SharkBite is a brand of "push to connect" copper pipe connectors to copper, pex, and other plumbing materials. Most plumbers prefer to use a torch and solder to ensure a water-tight leakproof fitting. However, should you not have the training and experience that should not imply that you snap it in and walk away. There is still some prep that needs to take place as follows: Cut the [...]

Reasons why local plumbers are best

June 2nd, 2020|When You Really Need a Plumber|

These days there are many different ways to find a company to hire whenever you need service. Whether it's a home appliance, the family car, or a sitter for your cat while you go visit an out-of-town sick aunt. There was a time when there was no Yahoo or Google or any other search, and even when they arrived, it wasn't until the advent of the smartphone and voice recognition devices like the Amazon Echo where we can simply say "Alexa, find me a plumber". As recently as 20 years ago, people had to look up information in a book [...]

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, [...]

NJ Licensed Plumbers: It Really Matters

March 13th, 2018|Drainage, Hot Water Heater, Keeping Safe, Plumbing 101, Water Leaks, When You Really Need a Plumber|

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 [...]

Choosing the Right Plumber

August 17th, 2017|How To, When You Really Need a Plumber|

This week, Mike’s Tips focuses on choosing a plumber, HVAC, air conditioning service or any type of service to keep you cool when it’s hot, hot when it’s cold, with fresh air, and water where you need it and not anywhere else. NOTE: In no way are these statements meant to disparage any business regardless of location, background, aggregator relationship, or any other tool one would use to find a plumbing services provider. Let’s start with the basics. In New Jersey, to legally perform residential or commercial plumbing of any kind, it is imperative to have a valid license. This [...]

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 [...]
