• Does My Tankless Water Heater Need to Be Serviced?

    Like all plumbing fixtures in your home, your tankless water heater should be serviced periodically by your plumber. Generally, tankless water heaters should be serviced once per year, but there are instances in which more frequent service is necessary.  

    If you live somewhere with hard water, your plumber should service your system at least twice per year, to check for sediment build-up and wear and tear on the system caused by hot water. If you set your system to a high temperature, you may also need more frequent maintenance service, since the high temperatures could cause damage.  

    For more information about tankless hot water heaters and plumbing maintenance, call Ace Plumbing. Our skilled plumbers in Sacramento provide tankless hot water heater repairs and maintenance services for all of your plumbing needs. Schedule an appointment for hot water heater service by dialing (916) 455-4548.

  • How to Choose a Trenchless Sewer Repair Company

    Trenchless sewer repair is an efficient and cost-effective way of repairing a variety of sewer problems. It is quickly overtaking traditional methods as the chosen repair strategy for plumbers. However, not all trenchless sewer repair companies are created equal, and choosing the wrong company can lead to a number of costly issues and leave you with more problems than you started with. As you choose a company for your trenchless sewer repairs, keep this advice in mind.  

    Learn About Licensing and Certifications 

    Any worker you hire in your home should hold the appropriate licenses and certifications, and this is especially true of plumbers working on your sewer system. Before you hire a plumber for any job, but particularly for trenchless sewer repairs, ask what licenses and certifications they hold. They should be able to provide you with their contractor license number, so you can verify that they are providing you with accurate information.  

    Look for an Experienced Plumbing Company 

    Trenchless sewer repairs are complex, and you certainly don’t want a plumber learning the ropes on your property. Find a company that has verifiable experience in trenchless repairs. Ask about the technologies that they use and how they will decide what is appropriate for your job. Ideally, your plumber should be experienced in cured-in-pipe, slip lining, and pipe bursting repair styles, and can explain to you how he or she will determine which fix is the best solution for your repair needs.  

    Ask About Their Process 

    Trenchless line repairs should start with video inspection, during which time your plumber should be prepared to hydro jet your sewer line instead of replacing it if the problem is only minor. Ensure that your plumber will also restore your outdoor space to its original condition when their work is complete.

  • How Tankless Water Heaters Conserve Water

    Tankless water heaters have increased in popularity dramatically in recent years, thanks to their energy efficiency and their ability to conserve water. Using a Rinnai tankless water heater as an example, this video explains how your plumber can help you save water by installing a tankless water heater.  

    If you have a traditional water heater, then you know what it is like to wait for the water in your shower to warm up. That wastes a significant amount of water. Since a tankless heater delivers water on demand, you don’t have to wait for the water to get hot, so you use less water.
