A Small Leak Can Be a Big Problem
Most water meters have a small red triangle on them that will turn when the slightest amount of water moves thru the meter. If the triangle moves with no water running the house, this indicates leaking pipes somewhere.
To determine if the leak is inside or outside your home, locate the emergency shut off (if accessible) where the water line first enters the house. Shut off the valve and observe the meter again. If the triangle continues to turn, this indicates the leak is between the meter and the house. If the triangle does not continue to turn, the leak is inside. Inside leaks: One or two dripping faucets or a toilet that runs can add a lot to your water bill each month. Outside leaks: A hole 1/32 of an inch in a pipe at 60 lbs of pressure will leak 6000 gallons a month.

WIth prompt and professional service, we replace your water heater fast!
Have you ever tried to take a warm shower only to discover you have no hot water? Does the hot water in your shower feel like it’s not as hot as it used to be?
If you think “Yes and yes,” then it may be time to replace or upgrade your water heater.
Most of us take hot water for granted, but having no hot water is an unpleasant experience for any homeowner. Most of us don’t even think about our water heater until there is a problem. Before you start to panic, remember Tommie's Plumbing is here to help!
Should I Choose a Tankless Water Heater? What Are My Options?
When it’s time to finally replace or upgrade your water heater, there are two options. The first is the traditional tank storage, and the second is the tankless. Both have their pros and cons but no matter which option you choose, Tommie's Plumbing is the right choice for your installation.
Tank storage water heaters usually range from 30 to 80 gallons. These tanks work by heating the water stored inside the tank. They come in gas and electric models, and both are relatively easy to install and are cheaper than their tankless counterparts. One major drawback to tank storage water heaters is that once the tank is depleted of hot water, you must wait for the tank to reheat the water inside the tank. For smaller households, this might not be a problem, but for larger households, you might have to wait to take a hot shower.
Tankless water heaters have several advantages over traditional tank storage units. The main advantage is that hot water is on-demand, which means that the water is heated instantly as you use it. Tankless units use a heat exchanger to quickly heat the water, providing you instant hot water as you need it.
Tankless units have a lifespan of up to 20 years, which is much longer than traditional storage tank units. They are also much more efficient than the traditional unit.
Another major advantage of going tankless is they take up much less space. Traditional tanks usually take up a useful garage, laundry room, or closet space that can be reclaimed by installing a tankless unit.
The only drawback to going tankless is higher up-front costs and longer installation times; however, the longer lifespan and energy bill savings of a tankless unit usually more than offsets the additional money and time spent.

Signs a Sewer Repair Is Needed
When something goes wrong with your sewer system, you’ll know it. Actually, you’ll smell it. The sour smell of a sewer back up is never fun for homeowners. If you’re noticing it, it is a sure sign that you need a sewer repair or possible sewer replacement.
Some signs you need a sewer repair - for example:
- Your toilet is not flushing properly
- Your toilet is giving off a foul odor
- There are constant flushing noises in the pipe
- Water bubbles are forming in your toilet bowl
Regularly scheduled maintenance services from our plumbers can help prevent the need for sewer repair.
Trained & Equipped Plumbers
Our drain and sewage professionals are trained and equipped to address the following plumbing problems:
- Broken Pipes - find and repair pipes that are cracked, punctured or collapsed by shifting soil, frozen ground, settling, etc.
- Sewer Blockages - grease buildup or foreign objects restricting or prohibiting proper water flow and/or cleaning of the sewage line.
- Corrosion - pipes have deteriorated and/or broken, causing blockages in the line and restricting water flow.
- Bellied Pipes - a section of the pipe has sunk due to ground or soil conditions, creating a valley that collects debris and waste.
- Leaking Joints - the seals between pipes have decayed or broken, allowing water to escape into the ground surrounding the pipes.
- Tree Roots - tree or shrub roots have invaded the sewer line, causing clogs and preventing normal line cleaning.
- Off-Grade Pipes - existing pipes are constructed of substandard or outdated material that may have deteriorated or corroded.
Septic Tank Basics
Only 25% of American homes have septic systems. For those that do, it can be the most expensive aspect of home ownership to be installed or replaced. Making an informed choice about your septic tank can keep initial costs lower. We can also help you avoid later spending on maintenance and repairs, plus extend the life of your system beyond the average of about 15 years. Tommie's Plumbing experts can custom design your best septic tank choice and oversee all aspects of its installation.
The tank receives wastewater that is either gray water (from bathing and washing dishes) or black water (contains human waste), which biologically breaks down into sludge. The sludge settles at the bottom of the tank and a layer of scum and grease forms atop the wastewater. That water (effluent) then flows into the drainfield. There, it seeps through the water table and is further purified.
Septic Tank Choices & Considerations
Your water usage, property, and price are all factors that affect what options and decisions you choose. We’ll evaluate with you as to what works best for your situation and budget. Factors to be aware of include:
- Tanks can be concrete, fiberglass, plastic or steel, each with specific advantages and considerations.
- Capacity that can meet your water consumption levels. Residential tanks run from 750 to 1500 gallons.
- Property siting is critical. The tank and drainfield need to be located where there is little that vehicles will roll over the tank, damaging the system.
- Water table and the soil and other layers beneath the drainfield are a factor.
- Most septic systems are passive driven by gravity with no mechanical parts; however, there are cases that require an active system with a pump.
What You Need to Know About Repiping
There are several reasons your home may need repiping. You might have old galvanized pipes that need to be updated and replaced, a busted pipe that leaks, rusty pipes or poor water quality. Inside or outside your home, Tommie's Plumbing has the experience and equipment to repipe water and sewer lines for you.
High Water Pressure Can Cause Many Problems
High water pressure can cause damage ranging from a leaky faucet to a busted pipe, and can also cause a condition known as water hammer or noisy pipes. This is the thumping or growling noise you may hear in your pipes, especially at night when water pressure is at its highest. Our technicians can check your water pressure to see if it is too high. If your pressure is about 55-65 pounds, you may need a pressure reducing valve installed or your old one replaced.
