Old buildings in Asheville contain old plumbing. Even the plumbing systems in newer buildings may use outmoded technology. Upgrading your plumbing not only prevents costly breakdowns in the future, but also saves you money on maintenance, repair and replacement.
The local plumbers at Blue Planet Plumbing can upgrade your water, sewer, and gas lines, as well as the associated components. When you improve the whole system, it gives you piece of mind and access to modern conveniences. Here are some of the upgrades and system services Blue Planet Plumbing can deliver:
Water Filtration Systems
The quality of the water in Asheville is generally good, but it can vary depending on your location and type of service. Blue Planet Plumbing installs water filtration systems for city water, wells, and other private water supplies. The Asheville plumbers install many types of water filtration systems, so they can advise you on the best options for your situation. Make an appointment today to test your water by calling (828) 423-6289. Based on the results, the Blue Planet Plumbing technicians can help you make an informed decision on the type of water filter you need.
All water heaters must have an expansion tank in place for proper operation, as well as for safety and code reasons. You may have an expansion tank if you have a well water system in your home. Since they don’t last forever, they should be inspected annually to ensure they have proper pressure. Licensed plumbers can test your expansion tank and if necessary, replace it for you. Contact us today to test your expansion tank. If you don’t have one on top of your water heater, consider having one installed.
Backflow preventers stop water, especially wastewater or gray water, from returning to the municipal clean water system. Backflow preventers are mandated for business owners in the Asheville area. If the City of Asheville requires you to install a backflow preventer on your home or business, you must have one. Call (828) 423-6289 for an inspection and installation. Asheville plumbers can help you pick the right backflow preventer valve to stay in compliance of the law.
Blue Planet Plumbing is one of the full-service Asheville plumbing companies that excel in sewer plumbing. Many sewer lines in old neighborhoods fail due to root incursion or age. The Asheville plumbers from Blue Planet Plumbing change dozens of sewer lines a year inside and outside the home. Often, a sewer line can be cleaned instead of replaced. However, there comes a time when a sewer line must be replaced.
Sometimes, even if you have the choice, the cost of cleaning the line exceeds the cost of replacing it. Contact Blue Planet Plumbing for plumbing repair estimates on all the work. Licensed plumbers provide an experienced evaluation on the best plan to deal with your sewer line problems — and offer a three-year labor warranty on all the work done, which no competitor can match.
Sewer Line Camera Inspection
In an ideal world, you’d know where your sewer line is, how deep it is and what condition it’s in. Then, if you need to repair or replace it, you’ll know where to look. Blue Planet Plumbing can help you gain that knowledge with its sewer video camera. Used dozens of times a year, the camera gives you an in-depth look at the condition of your sewer line. When your local plumber starts the conversation about the best practice for cleaning, repair, or replacement of the line, you’ll understand. Call (828) 423-6289 to locate your line and to conduct a video inspection, especially if you are considering replacing your sewer line.
Water Line Replacement
If you’ve ever received a notice from the City of Asheville Water Department that you have a water leak between the meter and your house, you may be tempted to panic. Don’t. In addition to repairing or replacing your water service lines, Blue Planet Plumbing can help you get a refund from the Water Department for the lost water.
Friendly, licensed plumbers make the process simple and painless for you. They perform all the excavation and utility location services in-house, while many Asheville plumbers subcontract those services — thereby raising your cost. Replacing your water service line is a straightforward process, but an inexperienced plumbing contractor may exaggerate the task. Contact us today to get an accurate plumbing repair estimate.
Hose Faucet Repair or Replacement
Because hose faucets are on the exterior of your home or office building, they are neglected sometimes. As a result, hose faucet repair and replacement is one of the most frequently requested jobs in the Asheville area. Many people simply forget to remove their hose from the faucet before freezing temperatures hit, thus damaging the hose faucet and requiring a replacement.
It’s actually a simple plumbing project, often taking less than an hour to complete. Call today at (828) 423-6289 if your hose faucet is leaking or damaged. Blue Planet Plumbing can also add more hose faucets to your home or business.
Sewer Ejector Pumps & Sump Pumps
Ejector pumps play important roles in your home plumbing system if you have one. You can prolong the life of your plumbing system by properly maintaining your ejector pumps. If your ejector pump has sounded an alarm or emits a flashing strobe light, this indicates pump failure. You need to call an Asheville plumber to inspect the system quickly.
Many of the plumbing companies in Asheville won’t do this kind of work because they don’t want to get dirty. At Blue Planet Plumbing, no job is too small, too large or too dirty. Contact us right away if you’re having trouble with your sewer ejector pump. A licensed plumber will come out to assess the situation and provide you with the information you need to make the proper decision on how to proceed.
Blue Planet Plumbing has the knowledge and experience to tackle big and small re-piping jobs. If you’re involved in a remodeling or renovation project that calls for new plumbing, call (828) 423-6289 to get the plumbing project started.
The Blue Planet Plumbing team can bring everything they’ll need to complete the job: pipes, fittings and valves. They’ll test the system to make sure it works properly, too. This service is useful for older residential and commercial buildings, as well as newer structures undergoing changes. Blue Planet Plumbing performs many of these projects every year because homeowners and business owners trust the honest plumbers at Blue Planet Plumbing.
If you’re on the Asheville city water system, you need pressure-reducing valves to diminish the water pressure coming into your home or business from the street lines. City water has to be delivered at high pressure because of the mountainous terrain. It’s too high for proper use inside your home. If unchanged, the high pressure can damage plumbing fixtures.
The pressure-reducing valve is located on the main water supply coming into your home or business, somewhere behind the main emergency shut-off valve. The valve works in direct correlation with the expansion tank on your water heater’s temperature and pressure relief valve.
It’s critical that you have this valve tested annually and replaced as needed. Blue Planet Plumbing changes hundreds of these valves in the Asheville area every year. People call to say, “My water heater’s leaking, my shower valve is dripping and my toilet’s running.” All of these problems can be symptoms of a failed pressure-reducing valve.
Often, you don’t notice the high water pressure until it has already damaged some plumbing fixtures in your home or business. Likely victims include: the fill valve in toilets, faucets, shower valves, water heater relief valve and expansion tank. Please call (828) 423-6289 to request an Asheville plumber to come out to test your home’s pressure-reducing valve to ensure that it’s functioning properly.
Hot Water Circulation
Blue Planet Plumbing services and installs hot water circulation systems that are highly efficient. These systems don’t require additional lines; they simply mount underneath your existing fixture. You can even control them wirelessly with a remote. Get more details if you’re interested in the Blue Planet Plumbing hot water circulation systems and designs.
