Maintenance Suggestions.

  • All water heaters should be flushed once a year, per manufacturer recommendations.
  • Tank heaters – Hook up hose to drain at the bottom. Run hose outside, open valve until water runs clear.
  • Tankless heaters – please call for service: 678-341-4455
  • Toilets – the use of most in-tank cleaners or tablets will void the manufacturers warranty. These items break down the rubber causing toilets to run constantly.
  • The use of flushable wipes is not recommended. Especially in basement plumbing.
  • Kitchen Drains – No Grease or oil should be put down the drains. Over time, grease will solidify and cause a back up.
