Leak Under Sink in Van Nuys, CA

September 1, 2009

Went out on a leak under sink call in Van Nuys, Ca yesterday. The tenants had been putting off the leaking pipe repair for a while because they were worried the Landlord would blame them for the plumbing problems. Note to all renters: Please call your landlord when you have a leak, water leaks cause a lot more damage if you don’t repair them right away. In this case, the garbage disposal was so degraded from the leak, that it crumbled to pieces when trying to disconnect the pipes. The leak had been around long enough to rust out all the piping and garbage disposal under the sink, damaged the cabinet and caused mold damage inside the wall. Needless to say, a small leak, turned in to a big job. Like good ol’ Ben Franklin once said, “A stitch in time saves nine.” Another job done by your friendly Van Nuys Plumber

Toilet Replacement in Van Nuys, CA

August 8, 2009

Replaced a Toilet in Van Nuys, CA yesterday. Their old toilet just wasn’t flushing right. they had one of those early model 1.6 gallon toilets that just couldn’t do the job without 2 or 3 flushes. How irritating is that! You want to save water, but your low flow toilet needs 2-3 flushes to get the job done right! Well, they are making better 1.6 gallon toilets these days.
Want to see the best 1.6 gallon toilet in action? Just click here and scroll down the page a bit, the video starts playing on it’s own. Why do I say this toilet is the best? It’s the best because not only does it flush well, it flushes quietly and has easy to find, easy to replace parts. Some of the other new 1.6 gallon toilets flush great, but they have hard to find parts or a noisy flush. Two very important points to consider when selecting a toilet you will probably have for 10-25 years. Another point from your friendly Van Nuys, CA Plumbers!
