Quick and Easy Spring Plumbing Tips

chicago-plumbers-spring-time-cleaning-tips

Whether you are a renter  or  home owner – Spring is a good time  to check everything over and make sure it’s  running smoothly.

 

  • Check your toilet for leaks. A fast and inexpensive way to do this is to put a few drops of food coloring in your toilet tank. If there is a leak, the food color will end up in the bowl within half an hour. While you’re at it, check out the bowl for any cracks or leaks.
  • ALSO  be sure your toilets  are flushing correctly. If you must hold or shake the handle, you need to replace the parts of the toilet which are responsible for flushing. They do not cost much and in fact will save you money on your water bill. LANDLORDS DO NOT WANT TO WASTE  MONEY!  Trust me, they will fix it!
  • Check your water supply valve by turning on and off occasionally. This will prevent them from sticking. If it leaking even the slightest bit – GET IT REPLACED  before a huge problem  explodes!
  • Your sink takes forever to drain.  In the bathroom – Pull out the sink’s pop-up plug. Any accumulation of hair or other debris can prevent water pouring into the sink from draining through. You can take the pop-up out and clear out the drain by manually pulling out the debris using tools like needle-nose pliers, or you can get special plumbing tools that are designed to clear out drains.

    ALSO  – use a plunger in order to dislodge clogs. Plungers can be extremely effective in unstopping stopped-up sinks. Make sure the sink overflow is covered with something like duct tape before you start plunging. Covering the overflow will help ensure that you get the best possible suction as you plunge.

  • Clean your shower head with vinegar to remove mineral deposits that can clog. I know most people don’t know this little trick of the trade. Take a Zip Loc bag and fill it with white vinegar. Place the Zip Loc bag on the shower head in place and wrap the bag with a few heavy rubber bands securing the bag to the shower head. Leave for 24 hrs and the mineral deposits should breakdown leaving your shower clean as a whistle.

By checking the bathroom, kitchen, appliances, equipment and more common areas, both within and outside the home, you can be prepared and help prevent any plumbing problems that occur. Just think of it as an extension of your spring cleaning project!
Check your drains, gutters and downspouts – which should be clear and free of debris to ensure proper operation. Many regions of the country experience a large amount of rainfall this time of year and you want to make sure you’re ready. If you let the debris build up, gutters and drains can clog, causing water damage, leakage and mold growth – not something you want to deal with!

The BEST Warranty on Plumbing in Chicago

best plumber plumbers chicago warranty

WE THINK WE’RE THE GREATEST! 

In the beginning, Goode Plumbing started out using a Volkswagen Microbus and a handful of tools. Since that time, we have grown the business while still maintaining our original philosophy of providing  the ultimate in customer satisfaction. We truly want you to be thrilled (well, as thrilled as one can be with a plumber in their home) with our service. We care about your home, we care that you feel you received good value. We want you to wave to us when you see one of our plumbing technicians in public.

We back up our claim of being great by sending professional plumbing technicians to your house, who will put on shoe covers before entering and give you an honest solution to your plumbing problems and a price up front whenever possible. And we will sell and install only excellent quality parts, products and materials.

We don’t give you the legally required one year warranty-we give you a MINIMUM two year warranty that covers parts AND labor.

Our water heaters come with a LABOR as well as  parts warranty from 6 to 20 years depending on model and use in residential applications.

And something should not fall apart because we put it together poorly. So we back our workmanship up for life against defects.  I don’t know of any other plumbing service companies doing that!

Renovating--vintage-bathroom-fixtures-chicagoVINTAGE FIXTURE RESTORATION

Have a vintage faucet or tub that seems to be at the end of its days, but you just can’t let go? Or perhaps you’re looking to put together a period bathroom for your vintage home.

We often have a selection of vintage fixtures available, and we can locate what we don’t have much of the time. We can also restore what you already own.

As with everything else we do, our restorations are done right.

Take our clawfoot bathtub restoration, for example. We don’t just spray on a coat of  new porcelain and brush some paint on the outside and call it a day. We remove your tub, and clean it completely. The legs are removed as is the waste and overflow. The exterior is media blasted and then POWDER COATED for an incredibly durable, long lasting finish. We have     new porcelain glazing sprayed on the inside. The legs can be powder coated or nickel plated (nickel is correct, chrome is not-although that is an option too if you want it). The tub is reinstalled, and a new waste and overflow kit is installed.

We can correctly restore your vintage toilet as well, using correct, brass parts.

If you have a rare faucet, chances are we can get the parts or have them made, and in some cases, upgrade it internally while keeping the exterior correct.

Green Plumbing Choices Chicago

green-plumber-plumbing choices chicago

 

Everywhere  we  look,  we see more and more “green” choices in the products and services available. These products and services* have a lower impact on our environment than standard products. Green plumbing puts the focus onto what’s most important … you and conserving our most precious resources.

Eco-friendly plumbing can also save you green – cold, hard cash. If you want or need to repair or replace your plumbing fixtures, are remodeling, or building a new home, call GOODE PLUMBING to discuss your options and choices.

We specialize in eco-friendly and sustainable plumbing solutions.

We will give you water and energy saving options such as high efficiency water heaters.

We specialize in eco-friendly and sustainable plumbing solutions.

We will give you water and energy saving options such as high efficiency water heaters, WaterSense toilets, shower heads, and faucets.

We also install residential fire sprinkler systems, rainwater harvesting systems, and grey water systems.

Virtually every plumbing service today has sustainable cost saving options as new emerging products and technologies continue to be developed. State and Federal Governments along with utility companies continue to offer attractive rebates for installing green plumbing solutions in your home or place of business. These money saving rebates are an excellent incentive to go green.

 

At Goode Plumbing, LLC, we are continuously working to make our company more ecologically friendly. Goode Plumbing has available, and encourages clients to ask about our high efficiency water heaters, on-demand water heaters, on-demand water faucets and dual flush toilets.

We  use low VOX chemicals, including PVC cement and primer. We recycle all cardboard and plastic packaging and all metals. And, our Sprinter diesel vans and restored Volkswagen Vans (modified with emissions controls!) average 20-25 mpg vs. the typical plumbing truck which averages 8-12 mpg.

We will continue to make changes to our company that aid in the protection and preservation of the environment. We recycle our waste metals, cardboard and plastic packaging.

 

*Some products labeled “green” are not necessarily so. Check purportedly green products for 3rd party verification of these claims. US EPA WaterSense and EnergyStar labels ensure that fixtures and heaters are “green”.
