The Importance of Maintenance

We recommend a yearly draining of your water heater to ensure long life and proper performance. Without it scale and sediment build up and cause the water heater to under perform or fail; consequently, all of your laundry, dishes in the dishwasher, your baths or showers, are tainted with this scale and sediment.

Our plumbing maintenance program, available to Bakersfield Quality Plumbing members,  includes an annual “draining” of the tank which prevents sediment and other buildup that will cost you more in energy use over time and shorten the life of your water heater. This also includes inspection of the anode rod, which is a metal rod inside the tank that sacrifices itself to save your tank. Instead of your tank rusting out, your anode rod deteriorates due to an electrolytic process. Many Bakersfield home and business owners save money on water heater repairs with their Bakersfield Quality Plumbing membership. All the benefits of membership for only $126 per year

Interested in switching to a tankless water heater?
 

Why You should choose a Tankless Water Heater:

  • Endless Hot Water:
    A Tankless Water Heater provides you with on-demand hot water when you need it, unlike traditional Tank Water Heaters which limit how much hot water you get until it has to reheat more. When combined with a Hot Water Recirculation Pump, you can minimize the delay between opening the tap and getting hot water from a Tankless Water Heater.

  • Lower Utility Bills:
    On average, a Tankless Water Heater uses 10-20% less energy since the water is only heated when needed. A family can save an average of $175 annually in energy costs by using a Tankless Water Heater instead of a conventional model.

  • Space Savings:
    Tankless Water Heaters are smaller and compact than conventional Tank Water Heaters and take up a lot less room in your home. A tankless unit hangs right on the wall, and out of the way. There are also external models that are serviced from the outside of your home, saving you even more space.

  • Longer Lasting:
    The traditional lifespan of a Tank Water Heater is about 10 to 12 years, while a Tankless Water Heater can last up to 25 years or longer, with proper maintenance.

  • Cleaner Water:
    Over the years traditional Tank Water Heaters can start to rust and build-up scale inside the tank, which is where your hot water is being stored for use. To prolong the life of your tank water heater, the tank must be drained and the sediment removed. Tankless Water Heaters pass the water through a series of heated coils minimizing sediment build-up.

  • High Volume:
    Tankless water heaters can handle the demands of any size household, no matter how large. This means if you require multiple units, you can add as many as you need and still enjoy all the energy saving benefits and on-demand hot water benefits of tankless technology. Ask us about how to determine the number of tankless units needed for your home.

 Garbage Disposal Repair and    Installation

The garbage disposal is one of the most used machines in the home. Due to heavy use, and water hardness, it’s common for issues to arise. Since most of us don’t have the time or the necessary skills needed to fix a garbage disposal on our own, it’s good to know there are professionals that can help!
 

Common Garbage Disposal Repair Issues

Stuck Object
This can range from a piece of silverware to a fibrous piece of food.  First, do not try to remove the object if it is sufficiently jammed! Second, unplug the disposal. Contact an Bakersfield Quality plumber to remove the foreign item.

Clogs
These can originate from a variety of things, including congealed grease, fibrous tissue, dirt, etc. Regardless of the reason, it’s a problem that needs to be fixed. Please contact an Bakersfield Quality plumber to clean out the clog. Our plumbers will use products that are safe for your drains. Additionally, it may be necessary to clean out the P trap, and if the clog is severe, the line may need to be snaked.

Overload
When your disposal is overloaded it has a feature that automatically shuts it off. This happens to prevent the machine from getting too hot. You can try hitting the reset button; however, if this doesn’t work, then you will need to contact an Bakersfield Quality plumber. The garbage disposal may require some electrical work.

Water Softening, Carbon Water Filtration & Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration Solutions

Water Treatment Solutions For Bakersfield Homes

Even if municipal water treatment plants do a pretty good job of providing clean water coming from the plant, there can still be some (or a lot) of impurities that can gather before reaching your home. These impurities can cause pipes to become brittle, cause clogs, and make your plumbing system inefficient or leaky. In-home water filtration can solve many of the problems and concerns Bakersfield homeowners have with water quality.
Bakersfield Quality Plumbing now offers, Whole-House Carbon Water Filtration PLUS Water Softening giving you the best possible option for clean water you, bathe, shower and do laundry in. Plus your appliances will last so much longer. 


The first step is to determine the combination of impurities in the water, like pesticides, minerals or metals, and chemicals.  Since water treatment plants use chemicals to clean the water, the chemicals they use can interact with organic materials in the water and create by-products, which can be unhealthy to consume. Physical damage to pipes such as water main breaks can introduce additional pesticides, chemicals and contaminants.


Water treatment tests can be performed by your professional Bakersfield Quality plumber to determine which impurities are causing a specific problem. Another contributing factor is the water source.  Municipality managed water treatment plant treat the water. Many plumbing service providers will test city-managed water for little or no cost. Well water has little filtration and no chemical treatment. It may also contain higher amounts of chemicals, pesticides and minerals. Testing well water may require more extensive tests and additional costs.

Well water is particularly susceptible to contamination because it is not treated chemically or thoroughly filtered.  These chemicals, metals and minerals can be unhealthy by themselves. They can also interact with pipes leading from the water treatment plant and the pipes in your home and interact with each other to create unhealthy by-products.

Some of the contaminants that may be found in your water (especially well water) include:

  • Aluminum, which has been associated with impaired brain function

  • Arsenic, which in high concentrations is a known carcinogen and linked to circulatory damage

  • Barium, which can contribute to high blood pressure

  • Beryllium, which is a probable carcinogen and toxic chemical

  • Cadmium, which has been associated with kidney disease

  • Chromium, which can damage the liver, kidney and nervous system

  • Copper, which can cause stomach irritation

  • Lead, which some believe to cause brain and kidney damage and is particularly harmful to children

  • Lithium, which can cause diarrhea, nausea and kidney damage

  • Manganese, which can be toxic to expectant mothers and younger children

  • Thallium, which is believed to cause hair loss and damage the intestinal tract kidneys and liver

  • Zinc, which can lead to anemia

  • Pesticides and herbicides, which have leached into groundwater and are known to contain countless hazardous chemicals

     

  • While it’s true that most of the health risks caused by these substances are the result of prolonged exposure to high levels of them, consuming any amount of these substances is not ideal. Most people want provide their family with the highest quality water possible. One of the best ways to remove impurities from your water is a carbon water filtration system.

  • Since there are several types of water treatment issues, there are different solutions. One of the first steps to solving water treatment issues is water filtration. Water filtration systems are designed to remove various contaminants from the water. This filtration can occur as the water enters the home, as in whole house filtration systems or it can occur at the point of use, like a kitchen faucet water filter.

  • Removing impurities is important to the efficiency and reliability of the plumbing system as well as the overall health of the occupants of the home. Filtered water has no odor and taste great. Better tasting water promotes more water consumption.  Whole house water filtration systems have the added benefit of treating all the water coming into the house. Water used for showers, cooking, and laundry are free of impurities as well as the drinking water. Water is absorbed by the skin and lungs and water impurities may cause skin irritation or increase breathing problems.

  • To eliminate many water quality issues, Bakersfield Quality Plumbing recommends whole house water filtration to remove contaminants and chemicals in your homes plumbing system. Whole house water filters are different from water softeners. Water filters may not eliminate scale build-up, but they will reduce many kinds of contaminants.  If the water in your home is cloudy, smells or tastes bad, or irritates your skin, then a whole house water filtration system should solve your problem. A filtration system can last for many years and it doesn’t need maintenance.
