Why Backflow prevention systems are needed in Ahwahtukee, Arizona?

By backflow prevention No Comments

Backflow prevention systems for irrigation in Ahwahtukee are key in keeping wine country in grapes. They also play a key role in many other commercial and residential applications. For example, a backflow prevention system maintains the water flow from the water supply lines to faucets, fire hydrants and more, preventing contaminants, such as debris, gases or solids from backing up into your building’s water supply.

When your backflow prevention stops working, it can cause a change in water pressure to trigger a vacuum. This condition can force contaminated water back into the clean water. When a municipality backflow prevention assembly fails, you’ll be asked to boil all of your drinking water for the next 24-48 hours.

Keep clean water flowing into your taps.

Whether it’s a leaking backflow valve or an overall problem with one of your backflow prevention assemblies, City Wide can help.

Go With “Low Flow” for Savings

By aerators, fixtures, hot water tanks, Phoenix Plumbing No Comments

Water in Scottsdale is precious, so saving water also means saving on your water bill. Here are some ways that you can save:

Save water with air.

Using aerator attachments on your faucets and showerheads can help you save water and money. Aerators add air into the water flow. More air in the water flow allows you to use less water without noticing a drop in water pressure.  Aerators can range in price from $7 to $12 online. They can pay for themselves within the first month, depending on your water use. Attach each one to your existing fixtures. Most brands install in seconds without needing special tools.low-flow-aeration

When it’s time for a new faucet or showerhead, many newer fixtures feature built-in aerators. A special “low flow” label on the packaging will tell you which ones are designed to help you save.

Always keep fixtures clean and accessible. That way, if there’s a leak, you’ll be able to spot it immediately. Small leaks can turn into big ones quicker than you may think. If your leak needs more than new washers on the faucet handles, call a plumber at City Wide 480-966-8795.

Save water with every flush. Low-flow toilets use less water. It’s not just about a smaller tank size. Newer technology around the tank includes a variable water pressure mechanism. It clears the bowl in one flush. And one flush will do it. Gone are the days when you needed more than one. After all, two or three times defeated the water-saving purpose!

Hot water tanks can be a big drain.

Install a tankless water heater near your biggest hot water need. For a lot of families, it’s the bathroom that benefits the most. A tankless system supplies hot water on-demand. Turn the water on and you’ve got hot water instantly. You’ll save by not having to run the water and then wait for it to get hot. It’s at the ready when you are. You can also downsize on your next hot water tank, helping you save energy, too.

Talk to the experts at City Wide.

They can help you find more ways to save on your water bill, and deliver same-day service. Estimates are free and there’s never a travel charge.


When your hot water isn’t so hot anymore in Chandler, AZ.

By hot water, Phoenix Plumbing, water heaters No Comments

no more hot waterWith 330 days of sunshine in Chandler and lots of time to spend outside, it’s great to come home and experience a hot shower to soothe those tired muscles. When your hot water isn’t so hot anymore, it may be time for water heater repairs or even a new, more energy efficient water heater.

If getting a water heater checkup just for hotter showers isn’t enough of an incentive, think about the other ways your household relies on hot water.

When you don’t have it, you might notice:

Dishes go into your dishwasher and come out looking almost the same. When your water heater isn’t doing its job, your dishwasher can’t clean as well. Detergent may not dissolve, grease may remain and you’ve just wasted a lot of water and electricity for dishes that don’t clean up. If you do your dishes by hand, you may have to boil water in a kettle or add a bit of bleach to your wash water to get dishes and glassware squeaky clean and sanitary.

Your laundry needs more help. When your water isn’t hot enough, whites and other clothing won’t get sanitized, and greasy stains may set in deeper. You’ll have to rely on bleach and/or need more wash time to keep your laundry up to your standards.

So when your water heater isn’t living up to its name, call the experts from City Wide Plumbing.

They provide a quick response to plumbing problems including water heater repair and water heater installations. In fact, they usually provide same-day service – even on Saturdays! A no-cost evaluation can save you time and money, and get your water temperatures back up where they belong.

Grey Water Irrigation System

By grey water irrigation systems, Phoenix Plumbing No Comments

grey water irrigation systemGardens create curb appeal and soften the outside of your home or business, but landscaping requires a consistent watering schedule. And depending on where you live, water can be expensive.

What may be a great solution is installing a grey water system.

Grey water irrigation systems are those that divert water already used from dishwashers, clothes washers and showers, and letting that water feed a drip irrigation system. People who are on a septic system are probably familiar with the benefits of a grey water irrigation system, since it’s nearly a requirement to preserve a septic tank’s ecosystem. Shampoos and detergents tend to kill off the necessary bacteria that break down any solids in the septic tank. New homeowners or people who have always been on a municipal water system, however, may not be aware of how grey water systems can save water, help reduce energy demands and increase plant growth.

Grey water is typically laden with phosphates from detergents and shampoos. If allowed to dump directly into a river, lake or stream, these phosphates encourage algae growth. Eventually, too much algae in the water depletes oxygen levels, and can harm freshwater marine life. So how are phosphates good for your garden? They act as a fertilizer, nourishing young plants and helping them establish good root systems. The plants act as a natural filter, using the phosphates before they reach groundwater, and helping to protect freshwater ecosystems.

Another added advantage to using grey water for your landscaping is that you’re reducing the amount of water needed to return back to waste water treatment plants. This reuse helps save electricity and the burden on your local municipality, creating a greener solution overall.

Since the early 1990s, Scottsdale has been providing non-potable water to 23 golf courses in north Scottsdale through a public-private partnership known as the Reclaimed Water Distribution System (RWDS).

It’s easy to add a grey water system to your home. It connects into your existing plumbing, and can work independently of any energy sources. Electricity-dependent systems use a pump to add more water pressure, and both types come in different sizes designed to accommodate homes and businesses.

By using grey water irrigation systems, your lawns, flowerbeds and surrounding landscaping could prosper!

What is Drip Irrigation?

By drip irrigation, Phoenix Plumbing No Comments

drip irrigation in Tempe AZ.One of the most efficient ways to water your garden is through drip irrigation. Water drips from small hoses strategically placed at ground level, maximizing the amount of water that gets to the plant root system. By dripping water directly on the ground, it eliminates most evaporation and allows approximately 90% of the water to go to the plants. In traditional sprinkler systems, water sprays into the air first, causing some of the water droplets to evaporate before reaching the plants. This type of irrigation is about 75% efficient.

A drip irrigation system hooks directly into your water source, such as near a laundry room or around the back of your property. The most efficient systems hook into a grey water system that uses discharge water from dishwashers, clothes washers, bathtubs and showers.

Even though the premise behind drip irrigation systems is simple, the set up can vary greatly depending on the square footage you’d like to water, your water system requirements, timers and the water pressure needed to keep the water flowing to your gardens. While most drip irrigation systems aren’t overly complicated. Keep your garden and your irrigation green this year with a drip irrigation system.

Do you need the guidelines for the design of public and private projects in the city of Scottsdale.

Preserve Your Water Heater

By Phoenix Plumbing, water heaters No Comments

How Can You Preserve Your Water Heater?

  1. If you have hard water, drain and clean your tank regularly. Check your owner’s manual for how often the tank manufacturer recommends, but a good routine is picking a consistent date at least once a year, and then following these guidelines:
    1. Turn the tank’s electricity or gas off first. Then turn off the water supply to the tank.
    2. Let the water in the tank cool for about an hour, and then drain the tank until it’s empty. It’s a good idea to use a screened drain for this, as rust particles and other sediment can collect and form larger particles that can clog smaller pipes.
    3. Turn the water supply back on and refill the tank about half way. Drain it again to remove any lingering sediment.
    4. Refill the tank.
    5. Turn the gas or electricity to the tank back on.
  2. Check your thermostat. If it’s set higher than 120 degrees, then you may want to nudge it down to 120.
    1. A lower temperature helps preserve the life of your tank, saves on your energy costs and helps prevent scalding accidents.
    2. Keep it at 120 or higher to prevent mold and bacterial growth.
    3. Use the “Vacation Setting” when you leave for an extended visit. The pilot light stays lit but the water won’t heat. You’ll save money on energy.
  3. Check the area around your water heater and keep the floor around it clean. That way, you can immediately detect excessive rust or other debris buildup that can indicate potential problems.


Plumbing Checks You Can Do

By Phoenix Plumbing, plumbers, plumbing tips No Comments
  1. Make sure every water shut-off valve is operational. The worst time to discover that water valvesthey are not working is when you need them. Do you have a lever-controlled shutoff? Or is it a round one? Some types of shutoffs deteriorate from the inside. This occurs when you turn or twist the handle and it moves properly but the inside operation of the valve has gone bad. You should always double check to make sure the water is turned off. Test your shut offs on a regular basis to make sure they turn the water off completely.
  2. Check the discharge hoses from dishwashers, washing machines, ice machines, water filters and reverse osmosis systems. The tubing can crack and develop slow leaks that turn into bigger problems. Catch minor leaks before you have a deluge.
  3. Replace fixture washers as soon as you notice a leak. Turn the water off at the fixture, and then remove the faucet handle. The washer is dark, round and flat, and it sits under the handle to make sure the handle has a tight grip around the shutoff post within the faucet. If the washer looks worn, it is time to replace it.
  4. Take a look at the base of your toilet. Does water seem to build up between the floor and the toilet? It may be time to get a new wax ring. The ring sits between the toilet base and the floor, creating a tight seal. Use the shutoff valves to turn the water supply off and then drain the water from the toilet bowl. Flush the toilet to drain the tank and then empty the bowl again. Remove the fastening caps from the base and unscrew the bolts. Lift the toilet from the floor and examine the wax ring. If it is very thin or worn in spots, replace it.

No one told me not to put that in my garbage disposal.

Garbage disposal tips 101

Garbage disposals are the ultimate kitchen scrap eater. If you’re thinking about a new garbage disposal or you just got one, there are some tips you’re going to want to follow to keep it running for years to come:

Always run cold water with anything you put down into the disposal. This helps maintain the flow through the pipes, and helps keep the disposal grease free.

Never put grease, chunks of fat or coffee grounds into the garbage disposal. Put grease and fat into a container and then throw it in the trash. Use your coffee grounds around your roses – they’ll thank you!

Put large bones or fruit stones in the trash and protect the blades from dulling prematurely.

Place smaller bones and most fruit and vegetable peels, husks or skin into the disposal, but cut bigger pieces into smaller ones to help the disposal operate more efficiently. Also, especially fibrous corn husks and celery stalks can wrap around the blades, causing jams and other problems.

Put eggshells in limited quantities into the disposal, but use caution. Ground-up eggshells can bind with greasy foods and clog drains. Also, eggshells are great out in the garden!

Even the best disposal can use a little bit of TLC once in a while. To keep blades sharp, pour a tray of ice cubes into the disposal, and then turn the disposal on. The ice sharpens the blades.

To remove odors, pour half a cup of baking soda into the disposal, and follow it up with a cup of apple cider vinegar. Let the mixture foam for a few minutes, and then run the cold water for at least 30 seconds. If you prefer a fresher, citrus scent, you can use half a lemon with the baking soda instead.

Stop buying water from the store and make your own at home.

By Phoenix Plumbing, plumbers, water filtration systems No Comments

You’re trying to drink more water, but buying bottled water can be costly, plus there’s always the added recycling responsibility with all of those plastic bottles. Plus, how can you be sure of what you’re buying?

You have some options. You can install a whole-house filtration system that filters your water as it comes into the house. That way, you can be assured that the water reaching any faucet or spigot in your home is clean, filtered and good tasting. The other added advantage is that it can help extend the life of your appliances. Rust, sediment, chlorine and other contaminants can wear on the moving parts of water-dependent appliances, like a dishwasher or clothes washer, for example. A filter removes these elements before they can damage your appliances.

A whole house water filter can also pair with a water softener, so double check to make sure you have hard water before you add a softener. Also, like any filter, you’ll have to change it every so often. Check your owner’s manual for recommendations to keep your filter working properly.

Another possible solution is to install an under-sink water filter. Filters fit under the sink, and attach to a dedicated water spigot that operates independently from the rest of the sink taps. The most popular placement choice is in the kitchen, so you can use filtered water for cooking, too. Some people even choose to install a separate filter on their refrigerator’s fill line for the ice maker. That way, the ice comes from a filtered water source, too.

You can choose a spigot style and finish that complements your existing faucet, and installation is usually within an hour. Regular filter changes are required, so check your owner’s manual for details.

Stop buying water from the store and make your own at home. Save money. Save time. And save the recycling for another product.

Make Low-Flow Toilets a Go

By low-flow toilets, Phoenix Plumbing, save money No Comments

plumbingcheckLow-flow shower head? Check.

plumbingcheckFront-load washer? Check.

plumbingcheck Faucet aerators? Check, too.

You’ve upgraded a lot of fixtures and appliances to save on water, but if a new toilet isn’t near the top of your high-efficiency list, you may want to reconsider. For example, older toilets from before the 1980s used as much as 7 gallons for every flush. Installing a new toilet that uses 1.6 gallons per flush (gpf) means you’d use 77% less water per flush! That translates into a great cost savings that can pay for itself in less than five years.Plumbing mistakes cost you.

But what if you already replaced your toilet in the early 90s and it’s still working well? Besides, it’s a smaller toilet, holding about 3.5 gallons – a full half of what your old toilet used – and it flushes the bowl the first time.

The truth is that some engineering tweaks made all of the difference in how well low-flow toilets flush. For example, the toilet’s trap that opens when you flush has been enlarged. The larger opening allows more waste to move through the opening more quickly. Also, new toilets use a mechanism to increase the water pressure and help clear the bowl after one flush. Some use an air-pressure system; others use a pump. Both systems require only a single flush to clear the bowl.

Contact us today, and we can help you make an informed choice on a new, low-flow toilet that best fits your needs.


Bathroom Remodeling Is Not for the Faint of Heart

By bathroom remodeling, Chandler Arizona, Mesa Arizona, Scottsdale No Comments

Your Mesa, Chandler or Scottsdale home needs a new bathroom and you’re ready for a change. In your mind, you’re thinking of something like indoor oasis meets budget-sensitive savvy, and you figured out your budget. If you do the remodeling yourself, you can afford to splurge on something special. It sounds like the perfect mix until you’re part of the way into your project and you’re already out of your depth. Here are some of the pitfalls many homeowners experience:

Your pipes are how old?

They might be galvanized or even PVC, but they will need upgrading. When you see white plastic pipes or gray steel pipes, know that the failure rates for these types of pipe are high, and it’s best to replace them as soon as possible. If you found copper pipes but don’t know how old they are, call us today! Our expert can evaluate your water flow, and how your fittings are holding up.

When your walls are opened up, it’s the perfect opportunity to get every part checked out, and either repaired or replaced. You can save hundreds of dollars in the long run by upgrading the items behind the walls first. That way, when your remodel is finished, you’ll know your next remodel won’t be until you decide it’s time.

You found a leak, now what?

Many times, a sink, toilet, shower or bathtub that you want to reuse can look brand new on the outside. Once you’ve pulled away the surrounding areas, however, you get a much better look at what’s really going on. Mold is the biggest red flag that you have a leak, but do you know what’s leaking? Can you tell where it’s coming from? Do you know what to do to stop the leak? What else do you need to replace? Can you still save the piece or do you have to buy a new one?

Contact us . Our experts can troubleshoot, trace the leak, make recommendations on what to replace and get the repairs done quickly. This can save you time, money and numerous trips to the home improvement superstore.

You found a leak, now what?

You didn’t find other problems, but that’s only because you didn’t know
what else to look for.

Our licensed plumbers know how one issue can trigger another. If there was a leak, did it compromise the integrity of your subfloor or cause dry rot behind your sink connections? Your bigger bathtub fits into the space, but can your floor support the heavier weight? The new floorplan works great, but does an electrical outlet need to be rerouted now that the toilet is on the south wall? Our City Wide licensed plumbers have the right training to look for potential issues, and can tell you the steps you need to take for your new bathroom remodel to go smoothly.

You’re installing your new fixtures with the tools you have, not the ones you need.

Yeah, it’ll probably work…. besides, it looks all right. But you just spent a lot of money on a new bathroom remodel. An improperly installed sink, tub or toilet can spoil everything in a matter of days. Do you really want to risk it on a “probably”? Get your installation done right the first time by a City Wide professional plumber, and save time, money and effort.

If you live in the Mesa, Chandler or Scottsdale areas, give us a call. At City Wide, we’re local. Call us today, before you start installing your new bathroom.

Sewer / Drain Line FAQs

I was told that my drain line is the old orange berg pipe, and I am having problems with stoppages. What are my next steps?

I have tree roots in my sewer drain line. What can I do?

You have two options: Option 1 is to keep cleaning the drain line until it stops up permanently. Option 2 is to replace or repair the old line with a new ABS line that will withstand tree-root penetration.

I have a blue poly water line that keeps breaking. What should I do to keep that from happening?

We suggest that you replace any older blue poly water line with a new copper water service to eliminate any further problems.

My PVC water service keeps breaking. Should I replace it?

Yes, PVC pipe should be replaced with a new copper water service.

How much does it cost to replace a sewer drain line or water service?

It depends on a number of different factors because every water service line can be different. Call us for a free estimate on your next drain line repair or replacement. We’ll measure the line and check for utility obstructions before giving you a written plumbing estimate.


Upgrade Your Water

By Hard water, Phoenix Plumbing, reverse osmosis system No Comments

If your tap water smells or tastes less than desirable, a Reverse Osmosis System (RO) can be a great solution with several advantages:

  • Improves taste, odor and appearance of your water, straight from the tap.
  • Removes pollutants by flushing them away and does not collect them.
  • Consumes no energy.
  • Uses the latest technology to purify your water.
  • Gives you quality water for pennies per gallon.

FAQs for Reverse Osmosis (RO) Systems

What are the differences between a two-stage RO unit and a five-stage RO unit?

The two-stage unit uses two water filters. It is a basic system, and will filter out most impurities. The five-stage unit uses five water filters. You will notice better quality drinking water as it filters out more impurities than a two-stage unit.

What kinds of maintenance will I need to do with a Reverse Osmosis system?

To maintain good, clean drinking water, you’ll want to change your water purifier system filters regularly. We recommend every six months, but that can vary depending on your water usage. Your owner’s manual can provide more specific recommendations as every water system is tailored specifically for your home or business. You can also give us a call for a no-cost evaluation: 480-966-8795.

Clogged filters can create low pressure at your Reverse Osmosis spout, so change your water filters regularly for best results.

Your Reverse Osmosis system also includes a drainage system. If anything blocks the RO drain, your system will stop producing water. Keep the drain clean by removing the blockage, or give us a call: 480-966-8795.

How much does a Reverse Osmosis System cost?

It’s not as expensive as you think, and every system installation depends on your water usage and your water quality. Schedule a free evaluation with one of our technicians. In most cases, we offer same-day service and always provide you with a free estimate. We’ll test your water for hardness and then size a water purification system that’s specifically tailored for your home or business.

Top 5 Plumbing Mistakes

By Phoenix Plumbing, plumbing fixtures, plumbing mistakes No Comments
  1. Plumbing mistakes cost you.Overloading or putting the wrong things down the garbage disposal. Disposals are designed to handle one thing at a time, when you over fill your disposal it can easily get jammed or overworked. Disposals also do not like starchy and fibrous food. Items such as celery and pasta often get tied up in the blades and cause a jam.
  1. Using the toilet as a garbage can. Homeowners flush all kinds of things down the toilet. Cotton ball, q-tips, paper towels and even food waste. Toilets are designed for human waste only, flushing foreign objects can lead to major sewer clogs.
  1. Pouring grease down the drain. When it comes to kitchen sink clogs, grease is the number one culprit. Grease hardens as it cools and builds up over time. It is best to poor cool grease in a container and throw it away in the trash.
  1. Putting too much weight on plumbing fixtures. Shower caddies are an awesome way to keep the shower organized. But putting too much weight on a shower caddy that hangs from the shower head/ faucet can cause damage. Use your creative side when organizing the shower, you can find a ton of easy solution on the internet. Check out Pinterest.
  1. Ignoring small plumbing items. Leaks never magically go away they only get worse over time and cause a bigger problem. Take care of them right away to avoid a major plumbing nightmare down the road.

A Testimonial from one of our customers:
“Had a water leak in the front yard under the driveway. Rob came out and suggested I get The Locator to determine exact location of leak so the entire driveway did not have to be jackhammered. Did that, location was determined, Rob came back, assessed the situation and gave me 2 options of repair. After I selected the option I wanted he gave me an estimate and started the repair work early the next morning. He had a lot of work to do to get to the leak. He worked all day in the hot sun to get it repaired. He was most accommodating and helpful. City Wide was originally recommended to me. I am definitely glad I called them. They will now be my go to plumbing company. Thank you Rob for a job well done.”

How To Clear a Toilet Clog

By Phoenix Plumbing, toilet clog, toilets No Comments

If your toilet starts to back up don’t panic.

  1. You will want to remove the lid on the back of the toilet and push down the flapper to stop any more water from filling the bowl.
  1. Try using a plunger to clear the stoppage.
  1. If the plunger doesn’t do the trick, try a toilet auger. You can pick one up from most home improvement stores, for about $30. It may take a little practice to get the hang of it but it could save you some money down the road.

After you have the line cleared you will want to test flush several times to make sure all is flowing well. The toilet and the bath tub normally share a drain line so you will also want to run some water down the tub drain to make sure that is draining properly as well.

If you still have an issue then you may want to call a plumber. The clog may be further down the line which will take a longer snake to clear the problem.
