Using a Water Meter to Check for Leaks

Most people assume that they would know if they had a water leak, but the truth is that water can be leaking behind your walls without you seeing it. One easy way to determine if you could have a hidden leak is to monitor your water meter, so you can call your plumber at the first sign of an issue.

To use your water meter to figure out if you have a leak, check the reading on your meter. After noting the reading, stop using water in your home for several hours. When that time has passed, check the meter again. If the reading has increased, you have water leaking somewhere in your home. Your plumber can pinpoint the cause and make the necessary repairs to prevent further damage from occurring.

Spotlight on GROHE Shower Systems

If it’s time to upgrade your shower, treat yourself to the spa-like experience of a GROHE shower system. GROHE showers combine the very latest technology with a commitment to sustainable practices to provide an unbeatable shower experience. As you consider your options for a new shower, ask your plumber if a GROHE shower could be right for you. Here is a look at some of the features you can expect with this kind of shower system.

GROHE SmartControl

GROHE SmartControl systems allow everyone in your family to personalize his or her shower. This thin, wall-mounted system consists of control knobs that allow you to customize your shower to your preferences. A simple push of the button turns on the shower, and then you can easily set the temperature and the kind of shower spray you prefer. You can also control the volume of water in your shower, to allow for more or less pressure based on your preferences. One system can control up to three showerheads, hand showers, and body sprayers at once, with individual control of each fixture.

Multiple Shower Options

There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all shower, so GROHE offers multiple designs to ensure that everyone can find his or her fit. From rainfall, mounted showerheads to hand showers and body sprayers, GROHE offers an enormous variety designed to suit every preference and bathroom style.


GROHE takes its responsibility to creating sustainable products seriously. The company’s EcoJoy system is incorporated into many of their showerheads and helps reduce shower and faucet water use by up to 68%. For outside of the bathroom, GROHE offers GROHE Blue, which lets you switch from tap water to sparkling water whenever you want to cut down on bottled water consumption and the associated waste it generates.

Could You Have a Water Main Leak Under Your Driveway?

Water main leaks are always something that homeowners dread, but a leak under the driveway can seem even more overwhelming. Fortunately, your plumber has the ability to find out what is happening under your driveway without ripping it all out. By recognizing the signs of a water main leak under your driveway and calling your plumber out for repairs as soon as you notice a problem, you can minimize the damage to your property. Here is what you need to know about the symptoms of water main leaks and how your plumber can help.

Signs of a Water Main Leak Under the Driveway

Many of the signs of a water main leak under your driveway are the same as any kind of water main leak. Low water pressure in your home is a common sign, as the loss of water through the break will decrease the flow of water to your home. You may also notice an increase your water bill, thanks to the water being spilled from the main. An easy way to spot a leak is to look at your meter when all the water in your home is off. If it is running, there is a leak somewhere. When the water main leak is located under your driveway, you may notice a wet spot on your driveway that spreads as the leak gets larger. Water may also begin to pool at the edge of the driveway.

Fixing a Water Main Leak

To fix your leak, your plumber will need access to the damaged pipes. When the pipes are under your driveway, this means cutting up the surface and digging down to the pipe. Fortunately, trenchless repairs let your plumber fix your pipes without digging up a large portion of your driveway, so you don’t face hefty driveway repair expenses.

Don’t let a water main leak damage your home. If you notice the signs, call Ace Plumbing for plumbing repairs, including trenchless repair services. To schedule a service appointment with a plumber in Sacramento, call (916) 455-4548.

Will My Tankless Water Heater Work During a Power Outage?

You won’t be able to take warm showers when your tankless water heater stops working, and you won’t be able to do your dishes or wash your laundry either. Talk to your plumber about hot water heater repair so you don’t have to put your responsibilities on hold. Read on to see if your tankless water heater will work during a power outage.

Whether or not your tankless water heater will work when the power goes out depends on what kind of configuration you have set up. Tankless water heaters need some amount of electricity in order to recognize your needs and know when to heat your water, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t use them during a power outage. Some heaters can be paired with a backup generator, while others can be used in conjunction with other types, like solar water heaters, so you still get your hot water.

If you have any questions about hot water heater repair in Sacramento, contact Ace Plumbing or explore our website. Our team of emergency plumbers will do what’s necessary to repair your plumbing equipment quickly. Call us at (916) 455-4548 to keep your plumbing systems up and running.
