When You Need a Reliable Plumber This Summer, Call PW Essig!

Summer’s here, and that means it’s time to have fun and enjoy the lovely weather. However, if you’ve got a clogged drain or a broken faucet, you’ll need to find a reliable plumber before you can enjoy some real relaxation.

Why You Need a Reliable Plumber

Many homeowners make the mistake of putting their trust in a local handyman when they have a plumbing problem. It’s important to note that this isn’t a good idea. Most handymen are great for a wide variety of home maintenance and installation jobs. But when it comes to plumbing, you need a professional plumber who’s highly trained, experienced and up to speed on all local codes. What’s more: he needs to be licensed and insured, plus, he needs to offer you warranties on all labor and parts. That way, if an issue needs further work because something in the initial fix wasn’t sufficient, you’re not out a penny more.

Common Plumbing Problems

As your trusted plumber with more than 77 years experience serving homeowners and business owners in the Reading area, it’s safe to say that there are a number of problems we see more often than others. These include:

  • Clogged drains
  • Burst pipes
  • Flooded basement
  • Broken fixtures
  • Backed-up sewer

Fortunately, thanks to new technology, we can use non-invasive methods such as video camera inspection, hydro jetting, pipe lining and pipe bursting to determine where the problems are and subsequently fix them. For property owners, this means there’s a significantly reduced risk of having to excavate their property.

Other Plumbing Services

In addition, our team of top-rated plumbers also provides an array of other plumbing services, including:

  • Storage tank water heater installation, repair and maintenance
  • Tankless water heater installation, repair and maintenance
  • Furnace installation, repair and maintenance
