Who is Testing for Backflow?

Illinois law requires a licensed plumbing and backflow prevention contractor to certify, repair, or install a backflow prevention device. You need someone who is knowledgeable in the prevention of water contamination as well as cross connection control devices. Every backflow device must be in compliance with statewide and local EPA Laws.

This is what you will get from Scott Swanson –

1.  Annual testing
2.  Repairs to get the job done once and for all
3.  Installing a new system
4.  Emergency repairs when needed

As the owner of Bee Plumbing Inc. Scott is a licensed, certified backflow inspector in the State of Illinois and you can hire him with complete confidence!  Now that spring has sprung, backflow may be an increasing problem in the far Western Suburbs of Chicagoland.  Please visit bee-plumbinginc.com and call the right phone number in your area.

Man oh man that IS annoying!  Of course, for some there is DIY repair for a leaky faucet in your home.  The hardest step to fixing a leaky faucet is usually finding the right replacement parts for fixes like a Moen faucet repair, for example.  How do you find the right parts?  Two questions…are you able to do the job?  Do you want to?

There are three main types of single-lever faucets: rotary ball, cartridge and ceramic disc.  Before you start, examine the dripping faucet closely to determine where the water is coming from. Leaks around the base of the spout require a different repair than a drip from the end of the spout.  The first step, of course is to turn off the water supply to the faucet.

From there, complications may arise.  What if you mess up the entire job?  Now you have a full-blown mess on your hands!  May we suggest Scott Swanson of Bee Plumbing Inc.?  It seems like tasks such a fixing a leaky faucet should be easy, but it rarely is.  If you are in the southern Fox Valley please visit bee-plumbinginc.com and call the appropriate number.
