The Old Reliable…My Home’s Water Heater.

It is the workhorse of appliances don’t you think?  That hard-working giant continues to heat our water to a desired temperature day-in and day-out.  It seems like it will never grow old, but eventually it needs to be replaced.  You could build a new home every five or years and perhaps you would never have to replace your trusty water heater.

Here are some signs that it is about to give out –

1.  Look at the serial number.  It shows the birth date.
2.  Does your water appear rusty?
3.  Is it making more and more noise?
4.  Does water is forming at the base?

A reliable water heater is necessity in your home.  Be aware of its shelf-life and don’t let an old faulty one bring your household to a screeching halt.  When that old unit has seen its better days, it is time to call the water heater replacement professionals in Central Illinois.  That’s Dave Bailey Plumbing in Morton at (309) 265-6788.

Get Un-Galvanized.

This is probably not a word, but it should be something that you pay attention to especially if you live in a Central Illinois home with some age on it.  What are galvanized pipes?  They are steel pipes that have been dipped in a protective zinc coating to prevent corrosion and rust.  Galvanized piping was commonly installed in homes in our area built before 1960.

At the time it was invented, galvanized pipe was an alternative to lead pipe for water supply lines.  Today, however, we have learned that decades of exposure to water will cause galvanized pipes to corrode and rust on the inside.  As they age, they will change in color.  Some may have even been painted over during the years.

To discover if you have galvanized piping in your Morton, East Peoria, Pekin or other Central Illinois home you should call in a pro.  That man is Dave Bailey of Dave Bailey Plumbing.  Not only will Dave and his crew assess the age and condition of your pipes, but give you an honest recommendation of what to do next.  Just give him a call at (309) 265-6788.

Ahhh…the Refreshing Taste of Agua!

If you live in Central Illinois you may already be enjoying clean, filtered water each day.  Did you ever consider that morning shower?  If the water that you shower in is unfiltered your skin is absorbing toxins.  Not only does this increase your chance of illness, but it even enhances your risk for cancer!

A water purification option is the ONLY option if you want to keep your family healthy.  There are different options such as filters, water softeners, whole-house systems, and reverse osmosis units.  Chlorine, lead, iron, etc. are your enemies when drinking or bathing or even taking that daily shower.

Call us and we will come to your home to assess the right water filtration system for your Morton Illinois’ area home.  We are Dave Bailey Plumbing serving all of Central Illinois’ plumbing needs for many years.  Call Dave and bring purity and good health to your home today and for years to come.  That phone number is (309) 265-6788.
