Tankless heaters save space and can reduce your gas bills. However, there is a lot of misinformation floating around regarding tankless units. Rather than being the "yes man", we believe in providing all of the pros and cons to the client so that they can make an educated decision as to whether tankless is the right fit for their situation. It's also important to have the right size and kind of unit for your specific situation so that all of your expectations are met.

Are your drains constantly stopping up? Have you had them snaked/unstopped several times but the problem keeps coming back? There may be an hidden problem with the pipes that is causing the reoccurring backups. Crushed/cracked pipes, back-pitched pipes, improper venting, improper fittings or just plain worn out pipes can all be the cause. Fiber optic inter video pipe inspection will allow the problem to actually be viewed directly. No guess work. Not only can the problem be identified but it can be located as well using radio locators. Don't waste money re-snaking, digging, or breaking holes in walls/floors. Find the problem and fix it for good. If you are experiencing backups every year or two, or even more frequent, then you have a problem with the pipes themselves that needs to be fixed. Simply snaking the pipes is not a long term fix. You would be treating the symptom, not the disease. Fix the clogs for good. Call us today!
Our Pro-Techs use the most sophisticated equipment available to quickly find hidden the pipes that are causing you headaches. Better yet, we can fix the problem after we find it on the same visit (unlike specialty leak location contractors).

When plain old snaking just won't keep the pipes open you need high-pressure hydro-jetting. A jetter is like a pressure washer but made for the inside of pipes. A hose is fed into the pipes with nozzles that aim sideways. The jet blast that comes out of the nozzle at 3000-4000PSI scrapes everything that is stuck to the pipe walls off and rinses it down the line. The result is pipes that are as clean as the day they were installed. There are many different nozzles for different situations. The biggest difference between snaking and jetting is that jetting is designed to actually restore the pipes where as snaking is usually done just to retrieve objects in the line. Snaking does not completely restore the internal pipe diameter and does not fully remove debris. Jetting is typically used in conjunction with fiber optic pipe inspection to clean the lines before the camera is inserted. Jetting is particularly effective on kitchen drain lines that are packed with years a grease/food buildup. There are also special nozzles with spinning chains or carbide teeth for removing heavy rust-scale buildup on the inside of cast iron pipes.
Actually a better term would be "drain clearing". Powerful machines use a long metal spring with special heads on the end that is spun into drain pipes to retrieve objects that are stopping up the drain pipes. Chemicals can be used in conjunction with snaking to help dissolve salts and other buildup in the pipes. This is not as effective as hydro jetting but it's usually less costly and quicker. Many times snaking is done prior to hydro jetting as a "tow cable" to maneuver the jetter through the pipes so that it can reach the right parts of the drainage system. There are many sizes and types of snakes as well as attachments. It's critical that the right size and type of equipment is used for the type and size of pipe(s) to be snaked as well as the stoppage type. Luckily, we are the local experts in drain cleaning and rehabilitation. No clog is too tough. Our huge trucks carry a large assortment of drain equipment for every situation and master drain cleaners that know what to do. Call us now and your clogs are as good as gone!
Pro-Tech Plumbing is Polk County’s re-pipe leader. Now one offers a better pipe system or better warranty (25 years!). Our proprietary system allows us to repipe your home with little or no damage to your home. This means less patch work needed after the job. In fact, over 90% of our repipe jobs need no patchwork what so ever. We can achieve this high standard of quality because our repipe specialists have over 1000 repipes logged and we use the highest grade of pipe available.
If you've received an estimate from someone, there are a few things that you need to check out before you sign a contract.
1. Is the contractor a "state certified plumbing contractor"? The license should read that way at the top verbatim.
2. How long is their warranty? If a contractor is only offering a warranty for 1-5 years, you should really ask your self what level of quality you are getting if they are only willing to stand behind their work for that short of time. A plumbing system should be expected to last as long as the house itself. We offer a 25 year warranty, the highest in the area by far.
3. Who will be doing the work? You might be surprised to know that 80% of the plumbing companies in Polk County Florida hire completely un-licensed plumbers to do their repipe jobs. It's important that you have someone competent installing your plumbing systems as failures can cause thousands of dollars in water damages as well as headaches and inconveniences on your part. Luckily, we always have at least one state certified master plumber on our repipe jobs. Workers are clean cut and drug free and respect your home.
4. Is a building permit being pulled? It's against the law to repipe a house without a building permit in the state of Florida. It's also a bad idea not to have a permit because no permit means no building inspector. The inspector is there to make sure the job is being done according to construction code. Without an inspector, you are basically taking the plumber's word that the job was done correctly. The inspector is an ex-plumber that acts as a 3rd party to protect your interests. If a plumber attempts to do a repipe without a permit, you can bet he is going to take shortcuts other places too. We always pull a permit and it is included in the price we quote for the job.
5. How much damage will there be to your walls, floors and ceilings? Our proprietary materials, tools and techniques mean that we can do the job with less cutting and exposed pipe.
If your home needs to be repiped, don't settle for less, call Polk's repipe leader today!
