West Palm Beach Plumbers
There comes a point in the lives of many people when they must choose to remain at home or move into an assisted living facility. This is an especially pressing dilemma for those with mobility issues. Rather than paying the cost of a monitored care facility, it may be possible to renovate you home to make it more accessible. This can allow you or your aging relative to stay home. At General Plumbing, Inc., we do more than plumbing and remodeling in West Palm Beach. We also help to create accessible homes that are safer and easier to get around in for people of any age or ability.
When it comes to safety modifications for the home, there are many things to consider. We can install the CARESSE+ system that includes devices to turn off stoves if left unattended, and monitor movement in the house. An alarm sends a signal to a monitoring center to provide help when a fall, change in any critical vital signs, fire, flood, or extreme temperatures occur.
Other means of making the home accessible also include adding fixtures to the plumbing that prevent scalding from excessively hot water or allow a tub or shower to be entered into more easily. If you are interested in improving the safety of your home for all the household members, not just those with mobility issues, contact us for more information on how we can help.
A home should be the most comfortable place you are in, even if you or a loved one has problems moving around. Rather than leaving that place of comfort, adapt it to lifestyle changes to make it safer and more accessible. If you would like to make your home more accessible and allow for in-home health care instead of a nursing home, contact us at General Plumbing, Inc. at 561-420-0442.
Water is a necessity in life, we use it every day and everywhere. Although water is a renewable resource, fresh water sources have nearly diminished, leaving water to be our most valuable resource.

Some benefits of a whole-house water filter include:
- Removing lead directly before consumption
- Water filters offer a more cost efficient option over bottled water
- Reducing the risk of digestive cancers such as colon cancer by removing chlorine and its byproducts
- Providing healthy water for cooking and cleaning just from the tap.
- Pure, filtered drinking water yields healthier water for children and their developing immune systems
- Protecting the body from at least 2100 known toxins that may be in drinking water

Your West Palm Beach FL plumber, General Plumbing, wants to make sure you are properly winterized before the first frost hits. Your home can often have pipe breaks or plumbing lines can freeze if preventative plumbing maintenance is not overseen.
Homes that have a kitchen sink facing the outside wall are more susceptible to freezing and precautions need to be taken when the first freeze arrives. Newer houses have plumbing brought up through the ground and in to the bottom of the cabinet while older homes often have pipes visible on the outside wall of the house. Watch the weather forecast as the temperature falls and it gets later in November and December. Open your cabinet doors below your sink during the first few winter freezes and allow the warmer air to pass over the pipes and water lines. Also, it may be beneficial to place a space heater outside your cabinet to ensure warm airflow over your plumbing.
Outside pipes and faucets are also a concern. Outside garden hoses are commonly left attached to outdoor faucets. The winter temperatures will freeze the garden hose which will in turn freeze the spigot or faucet. Removing your garden hose before it starts to freeze is a simple preventative measure that can help keep faucets working. You can always have an isolation valve installed from your West Palm Beach FL plumbing company so that the water can be shut off from the inside. Even with isolation valves you still need to drain the faucet of any excess or stored water it might have from pressure.

Clogged drains in your kitchen or bathtub or sink are common occurrences and can quickly put a halt to your normal routine. Drain cleaning service from your West Palm Beach FL plumbing company, General Plumbing, can alleviate any problems you have and prevent stoppage from becoming an issue again.
Many store bought drain cleaners will only temporarily prevent drain clogs and for heavy buildup, often can’t handle the job. Your West Palm Beach plumber, General Plumbing, will use professional services like drain snaking, hydro jetting, and video camera inspection to find the root cause of your clogged drain. Clogged drains can become worse over time, often due to material buildup that continues to collect, so it is essential that you relieve these issues as soon as you notice water buildup.
One of the most common causes of household drain clogs is grease, soap, and hair buildup. Manmade obstructions from unacceptable items not meant for residential pipes and drains are often flushed or dropped in sinks. These unwanted items cause major backups more quickly and need to be addressed as soon as possible. With years of experience, General Plumbing is your West Palm Beach drain cleaning service of choice. Emergency drain cleaning service, available 24 hours a day, is just a phone call away.
Drain snaking is one of the most common and effective approaches to clearing clogged drains.

Video camera inspection can pinpoint the cause of a clogged drain with state-of-the-art cameras fed down the drain line to the source of the buildup. Video camera inspections can also confirm a drain is cleared after using other methods of unclogging the drain.
Do not hesitate to call a plumbing professional to clear your clogged drain. Schedule a drain cleaning with General Plumbing by visiting them online or calling 561.420.0442.
Weighing the options for a new water heater for your home is extremely important. If you have a large family or like to take long showers, a conventional water heater may not be the choice for you. You may need something larger and more suited to your specific needs and General Plumbing, your West Palm Beach FL water heater experts, can help you choose the best water heater for you.
A tankless water heater is a great choice for replacing any type of water heater. The West Palm Beach FL plumbing experts at General Plumbing provide quality tankless water heater installation. Tankless water heaters are becoming more and more popular, as they hold several advantages over conventional water heaters, including added durability, longer hot water supply, improved energy efficiency and utilize less space. Due to their energy efficiency, tankless water heaters can also reduce your home’s monthly utility bill, truly earning you your money’s worth.
Tankless water heaters are normally the size of a garment bag, compared to the larger, bulkier conventional water heater. In addition, they provide an unlimited source of hot water on demand, and are perfect for those with large families. Tankless water heaters utilize power or fuel to heat when the water is running. This makes them a much more environmentally-friendly option, something to keep in mind for all those going green.
Tankless water heaters come in either electric, gas or propane devices. The water heaters can be mounted in several places because there is no tank and they are small. Additionally, because these tanks do not store water, the risk of water damage from leaking is almost nonexistent. Tankless water heaters only have to deal with the standing water in their water supply lines and do not run the risk of corrosion.

Of all the problems that can occur with your plumbing, a pipe break is one of the most intimidating. Pipe breaks often occur with little to no warning, leaving you with an extensive plumbing problem on your hands. For anyone finding themselves in this situation, it is essential to rely on a prompt and professional plumbing to alleviate this issue in no time. A professional plumber can utilize their vast experience in this area to get your pipes up and running and back to peak performance in no time. Our West Palm Beach FL plumbers at General Plumbing are the ones to count on when it comes to broken pipes.
No matter the problem with your pipes, our reliable plumbing experts can take care of the issue in a timely and efficient manner. Oftentimes, the cause of broken pipes is simply older pipes breaking down and giving out over time. With many galvanized pipes, however, the corrosion process over time can break them down slowly and leave your home with contaminated water. If your water appears contaminated or your faucet is flowing poorly, a pipe break may be the root of your issue.
Pipe breaks can cause costly damage to your home or property. Besides the water damage to your personal belongings, pipe breaks can cause wood to rot, metal to rust, or plywood to warp. Luckily, a reliable plumbing professional can get your pipes back to working order before you know it.
With any plumbing system in your home, there is always the potential for leaks to occur. When gone unnoticed, these small leaks may turn into large problems, resulting in extensive water damage to your home and costly repairs and replacements. In order to accurate detect and put a stop to these leaks, it is important to know the various kinds, what to look for, and how to stop them. Our professional West Palm Beach FL plumbers at General Plumbing can assist you in locating and alleviating these leaks.
In order to best understand leaks, you must first learn about the various types that may occur within your residence. By educating yourself on the characteristics and warning signs of these leaks, you can know what you’re dealing with should they ever occur in your home.
A yard line leak is just like it sounds, a leak in your yard. These are characterized by unusual flooding in your yard, even far away from the actual leak itself. You may also notice significantly higher utility bills caused by this wasted water.
Water line leaks are located inside your home, and also characterized by unusually high water bills. In this case, however, the excess water does not damage your yard, but your flooring, cabinets, or other household features located close to the ground or near a dripping pipe.
Where leaks become more serious, are slab leaks and gas leaks. Slab leaks can cause critical damage to your home’s foundation, and if you notice wetness on your floors, high water bills, low water pressure, warm spots on the floor, or a dripping noise, a slab leak may be the reason why.
The most serious leak of them all, a gas leak should never be taken lightly. These leaks are so dangerous because they often go unnoticed, but can cause extreme fires or result in carbon monoxide poisoning, a silent killer. If you smell gas in your home, evacuate the area immediately. One of our trained plumbing technicians can assist you in ridding your home of this danger. It is imperative you count on a professional to take care of these leaks in a timely and efficient manner.
