Hydro-Jetting Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach, Torrance

Hydro-jetting is a process that uses high speed / high pressure water to clear blockages

In pipe systems and is typically the first approach to clearing blocked lines. Barring the

possibility of a collapsed line, hydro-jetting will solve the problem and thereafter routine

maintenance will keep the lines free and functioning properly. Maintenance of this sort

will go a long way toward minimizing eventual blockages that could result in a line breakage

requiring more drastic and expensive remediation.

Faucet dictonary

Here’s a quick lessson on the terms
that will help you with your faucet

Aerator: A device in a faucet spout
that mixes air with flowing water.

Centerset: A faucet style that combines spout and handles.

Dual-control faucets: One handle for hot, one for cold, may
cost slightly more than single-handled faucets because you’re buying
more hardware.

Escutcheon. Also called a faucet hole cover, this is a trim piece that
dresses a pipe or valve as it penetrates the wall.

Handles: Turn on with either cross-shaped or lever handles (both come
in traditional and contemporary styles). A single handle allows for easier
use especially for kids or people with disabilities.

Lift rod: A rod inside the faucet that lowers the stopper into the drain.

Wall-mount: This type of faucet is mounted into the wall rather than on
the vanity surface. A perfect solution for clutter-free countertops, wallmount
faucets are also frequently paired with vessel-type lavatories.

Water Filters: You can add a filtering system to your tap. Some faucets
feature a system mounted beneath the lavatory. Others have a filter
system inside the body of the faucet.

Widespread: A faucet style that features separate spout and handles.
This distance between handles is usually at least eight inches from the
center end of the handle. Widespread faucets come only one way—three
components (one hot, one cold, and a spout) that can be installed over

How do I know If a plumber has fixed my sewer line problem?

It’s completely understandable that you want to
verify the accuracy of plumbing projects, and with
modern technology, you can. Request a video inspection
before the plumber completes any work. (West Coast Plumbing & Sewer provides this service to all clients.) This
camera-aided surveillance will show you any defects in
the line. Then the plumber should explain the problem
and what to expect in terms of the repair process. Once
the professional completes the work, you can view the
results through a second video inspection. Also, keep in
mind quality repairs should have a warranty that you
can fall back on if future problems develop.
