Questions About Plumbing

Plumbing problems can rapidly worsen in a very short span of time, which is why we recommend seeking plumbing repair as soon as you notice something anything unusual. Common problems that require plumbing repair include:
  • Evidence of plumbing leaks
  • Increases in your utility bill
  • Odd noises or knocking from within your walls or floors
  • Slow-moving drains or frequent drain clogs
Diagnosing a plumbing leak on your own can be really hard, but there are a few easy tells. Keep a close eye on your water bill, because any sudden spikes may mean you have a plumbing leak. Additionally, the presence of persistent mold, funky odors, or dark, damp areas along your ceilings and walls may indicate a plumbing leak. If you want to be certain, we recommend scheduling a leak detection service—the process is fast and affordable, and it will guarantee you catch leaks before they get out of hand.
Drain cleaning can be used as both a method of clogged pipe repair and a type of preventive plumbing maintenance. The drain cleaning process uses drain snakes, safe chemicals, hydro-jetting, and other techniques in order to remove gunk and grime from your pipes, providing a cleaner water flow and minimizing risks associated with pipe damage and wear.

Water filtration and conditioning systems can improve the purity, clarity, and taste of the water in any home. Additionally, water softeners are excellent for homeowners or businesses that contend with problems caused by hard, mineral-laden water.

Tankless, also known as “on demand” water heaters, use an internal heating element—either gas or electric—in order to heat water as needed. They are small units that can heat water only when you want it, saving the cost of keeping a tank heated all day long.

There is no shortage of videos and blogs that make plumbing repairs seem fast and easy to complete. While some plumbing repairs are simple — such as unclogging a toilet or fixing a leaky faucet — others require specialized tools and professional training to perform properly. We recommend that whenever you are in doubt, it is best to hire a certified, licensed, and insured plumber to do the work. This will help protect your home from damage and ensure the required repairs provide a lasting solution to the problem.

Questions About Boiler Heating

Boilers are a top-notch choice here in Maryland, where the winters can be both unpredictable and relentless. No heating system out there provides more even, consistent, and powerful heating, and modern systems can match the efficiency ratings of furnaces and heat pumps no problem.

When a boiler kicks on for the first time of the year, or after it has been off for a while, you may notice a faintly unpleasant odor. This is just dust particles burning off, and should only last a minute or two. If the odor persists, you may need to schedule a boiler diagnostic service to ensure safety.

It absolutely shouldn’t be! If you keep up with seasonal boiler maintenance and your boiler still fails to heat your home, it may be time to replace your boiler with a new system.

Your plumber was very pleasant, helpful, and informative about copper pipes and the problems that can occur. He was very neat and cleaned up when the job was completed. I have used one of Stang’s competitors for a period after 40 years.
