Brentwood plumbing Tips


Stop. Gate. Ball. May the Best Valve Win

There are three basic valve styles, making this a classic case of good, better and best (described in order as follows). All three can be used for water, oil or airflow control if the casting has “WOG” stamped on it. Your Concord plumber is well versed in all three of these types of valves and […]




Nothing Silly About Plumber’s Putty

Plumber’s putty is a substance used to make watertight seals between pipes and countertops. It will remain soft for a long while after it is used. This characteristic makes plumber’s putty ideal for seals you will need to reverse. Because it does stay soft for such an extended amount of time, you shouldn’t use plumber’s […]




No More Stinky Sink

Even though the garbage disposal is designed to pulverize and remove kitchen waste from food products, food particles often become trapped in the nooks and crannies of the disposal and drainpipe. This provides the perfect environment for mold and bacteria to grow and create unpleasant odors, as well as unhealthy spores – nothing you want […]




Why Pick Pex Plastic Plumbing Pipe?

It’s easy to install, cheaper than traditional copper plumbing, and has a great track record when it comes to performance. It is […]




Too High? Too Low? Just Right!

If you are experiencing low or high water pressure, there are a few things that you can check to see if the pressure problem is in your household pipelines. First, check the pressure/flow at your outside hose bib, usually located in the front of your home. If you are getting good flow at the hose […]




Repeat After Me: Drain, Waste, Vent

Drainage Systems Whether your East Bay home is on a sewer or septic system, the systems within your home are essentially the same. Drainage systems do not depend on pressure, as supply systems do. Instead, waste matter leaves your house because the drainage pipes all pitch, or angle, downward. Gravity pulls the waste along. The […]




Plumbing Pratfalls

No one wants to face expensive but avoidable plumbing repairs.  There are going to be times when calling your Brentwood plumber is inevitable – but to lengthen the time between housecalls, avoid these plumbing errors. Putting grease down the sink -Please don’t put grease down the drain.  Even with hot water and soap, grease can […]




Flush Up With Upflush

What is an Upflush Toilet? The upflush toilet is a great addition to any Antioch home. It is also more cost effective compared to a standard toilet in terms of the amount of flushing water it uses. When the upflush toilet is flushed, the water level will be pressured so that it rises into the […]




Some Like It Hot – But Safety Trumps Heat

Can tap water really cause serious burns? Yes. Most Brentwood hot water heaters are set to a temperature of 60°C (140° F). Water this hot can severely scald a child’s skin in just one second. A scald is a second-degree or third-degree burn caused by hot liquid or steam. Hot coffee, tea, soup and other […]




Hammer Time! (Sorry MC – WATER Hammer)

Water hammer is a specific plumbing noise, not a generic name for pipe clatter. It occurs when you shut off the water suddenly and the fast-moving water rushing through the pipe is brought to a quick halt, creating a sort of shock wave and a hammering noise. Plumbing that’s properly installed has air chambers, or […]
