Plumbing Service for Businesses

What to Look for in a Ephrata Plumber

If you’ve heard stories about the havoc an inexperienced plumber can wreak on your plumbing system, then you know how important it is to find the right plumbing company. To ensure your home is in good hands, we suggest keeping an eye out for:

  1. Proper Licensing: Make sure your potential plumber is licensed, insured, and certified to work in the state of Pennsylvania. This ensures they’ve passed a basic competency test and are up to date on modern plumbing code.
  2. Business Experience: While there are some exceptions, it’s best to hire plumbing companies with a few years under their belt. The more experienced a plumbing contractor is, the quicker they’ll be able to pinpoint and correct the problem.
  3. Price: Before hiring someone for major plumbing work in Ephrata, we suggest getting a few price quotes. Don’t be tempted by the cheapest invoice, however! This is often a sign—especially if the difference is large—that a plumbing contractor doesn’t understand the work involved.
  4. Reviews and References: What do past customers have to say about the plumber? How do people you know react when they hear the company’s name? Check Google and Facebook for previous reviews. If there are negative ones, verify that the company responds to the perceived problem.
  5. Guarantees: What happens if you aren’t happy with the work the plumber does? Will they make it up to you? Is a refund in the cards? Any plumbing company that isn’t willing to stand behind its work is one best passed over.

For people who don’t have time for this kind of research, we suggest giving 717-335-2633 a call. We check all of the above boxes. We’re also locally owned and familiar with Stevens, Ephrata, and Denver.

Plumbing Service FAQs

How Much Will My Plumbing Repair Cost?

Unfortunately, this isn’t something we can provide over the phone. Every plumbing job in Ephrata is different. To ensure an accurate price, we’ll need to visit your home to investigate the issue. Rest assured, our guaranteed proposals are fair and based on current market rates.

You might be wondering if we can handle your particular faucet or toilet issue because of its brand. Well, rest easy! Vertex services all popular brands of plumbing fixtures including American Standard, Bemis, Delta, Elkay, Grohe, InSinkErator, Kohler, Moen, Mueller, Coleman, GE, Kohler, Whirlpool, and Whirlaway.

Soft water is water that is free of hard chemicals like iron and calcium. To take water from hard to soft, water softeners replace those unwanted chemicals with sodium or potassium. This results in less soap scum and a better occupant experience.

You’ll want to start by shutting off the main water supply. Alternatively, instead of shutting off water to your whole house, you may be able to shut off water closer to the leak. Stopping the flow of water will help limit the scope of the water damage. Then, use towels or rags to absorb what water you can. By doing so, you can make a cleaner, safer working area for our plumber. Lastly, if we cannot get to you same day, consider opening a window and using an air blower to wick off excess moisture. If the leak is small, you can initiate a temporary patch before turning the water back on.

Although you might get a better rate from an unlicensed plumber, the savings aren’t worth it. Any repairs they complete won’t be covered by insurance if they fail. There is also no guarantee that the solutions implemented will meet modern code standards.

There are few things you can do to lower your water bills. These savings tips include:

  • Limiting the length of showers
  • Place warm water in the fridge instead of waiting for the tap to cool
  • Install a low-flow showerhead or toilet
  • Only run full dishwasher and full laundry loads
  • Place a brick in your toilet tank to reduce water volume
  • Use the dishwasher instead of handwashing dishes
