Household Drains

 

When you call Reid Brothers Plumbing & Heating for home plumbing, you will encounter not only expertly trained plumbers, but plumbing technicians who are trained to deliver to you a tailored and unique service experience. This experience includes treating you and your home with respect, which is what our plumbers pride themselves on.

 

Dishwashers & Kitchen water lines

Your dishwasher is connected to your kitchen sink's water supply line and it depends on the sink's drainage system to get rid of spent water at the end of a cycle. If the sink plumbing is clogged, water will back up into your dishwasher.


Reid Brothers installs and replaces all dishwasher brands and we hook up their water supply lines and drains to provide you with years of trouble-free service.


Reid Brothers’ Service Technicians also install refrigerator water lines to keep ice makers and drinking stations supplied with clean, fresh water. Dishwashers and water lines are some of our most common kitchen plumbing jobs.

 

Faucets & Sinks

Reid Brothers’ Service Technicians can handle any faucet repair or replacement whether part of a kitchen sink, bathroom sink, bathtub, shower, wet bar, laundry room, water shut-off valves or even an outdoor hose bib. Faucets contain moving parts and they break and wear out over time.


We can also solve any sink clog; repair or replace an existing sink or install a new one wherever you need it, whether in the kitchen, bathroom, laundry room or bar.

 

How to turn off the water supply if your faucet breaks
Faucets break and water begins spewing all over the wall and floor. Look beneath the sink for the water shut-off valves. There is a cold water shut-off valve and a hot water shut-off valve. They're usually chrome with a small oval valve handle. Turn the handles clockwise until the water stops pouring out of the faucet. If it won't budge, get a pair of pliers and slowly turn the knob back and forth until the rubber seat inside loosens. Don't force it all at once or it could break and cause bigger plumbing problems. If the valve spins freely and won't turn the inner seat, tighten the set screw on the face and try again. Once the valve is moving, turn off the water and call Reid Brothers.

 

Floor Drains

Floor drains are essential for removing and preventing standing water in areas which are prone to flooding. Floor drains are most often found in basements, garages, laundry rooms, patios, and sometimes in older bathrooms.

In order for a floor drain to do its job, it must remain unclogged and clear of all debris.

Homeowners should test floor drains at least twice a year to ensure they are working properly. Do this by carefully pouring several gallons of water into the drain. A properly functioning floor drain should carry the water away quickly. If water takes a long time to go down the drain and pools on the floor, there is probably a partial clog in the pipe.

Reid Brothers will unclog your floor drains the same way we clean a sewer or sink drain. We'll use a drain cleaning machine that cuts through any and all blockages inside the pipe.

 

Showers & Tubs

Today's bathrooms feature an array of shower and tub designs. Most are conventional tub & shower combinations, others are ornate with a variety of water jets, shower heads and faucet designs. Reid Brothers’ Service Technicians are experienced with of all shower repairs, bathtub drain repairs, water pressure issues and even installations/replacements. We are the experts to call for your bathroom plumbing solutions.

 

Toilets

If you have a problem toilet that always seems to clog, run (leak), lack flushing power or if you need any sort of toilet repair or replacement, Reid Brothers’ Service Technicians can solve the problem.


Clogs

Is there a more helpless feeling than when a toilet won't flush? Water rises in the bowl and begins spilling onto the floor as panic sets in. If a toilet requires plunging on a regular basis, there is probably an obstruction in the trap or further down the drainpipe. It may even be a symptom of a bigger problem farther down the sewer line. We're experts at dealing with clogged toilets.


Running toilets

If you hear water running in your toilet tank for extended periods after a flush, then your toilet is leaking. It is dumping water down the overflow tube and wasting up to 200 gallons of water daily. The problem may be a corroded overflow pipe or flush valve assembly. Sometimes the culprit is a worn out flapper valve. Stop jiggling the handle and call Reid Brothers. Chances are you'll save enough money on your next few water bills to cover the cost of the plumbing repair.
