Toilet test includes flush, seat, bolt caps, base movement, supply line, and emergency water shut-off.
    5. Water softener
      Water softener is tested for hardness and emergency water shut-off operation.

    Earthquake Emergency Shut-Off Valves in Placentia

    Because earthquakes are a matter of “when” not “if,” installing earthquake shut-off valves can help to prevent explosions by sensing and measuring the intensity of an earthquake and then shutting off the gas valve if the reading of the earthquake measures 5.4 or higher on the Richter scale as read at the location of the shut-off valve. Bill Metzger Plumbing highly recommends that you have this system installed at your home/commercial property, especially in buildings of more than three units. Call today to discuss how you can protect your property.

The perfect company that offers these combinations of services is not easy to find. There are hardly any reputable companies that can provide a full line of grease servicing products that cater to the food service industry. However, if you are hunting for a full-service grease company that can cater to all your needs, your search ends right here. Bill Metzger Plumbing is a highly reputable grease servicing company specializing in the food service industry for over 50 years.

    Backflow prevention in Placentia

    Backflow is the undesirable reversal in the flow of water from a real or potential source of contamination back to the potable, or clean, water supply. Consider having a garden hose in a bucket of soapy water at your home and having a backflow event occur, causing that soapy water to “backflow” into the drinking water portion of your home. Various types of backflow preventers exist for different applications and health hazard conditions. Check state and other local administrative codes or other regulations for the correct backflow to use. The most common are reduced pressure backflow preventers and double backflow preventer valves. Backflow preventers are primarily used in a sewer, wastewater, residential, sprinkler, and irrigation backflow applications. If you are looking for a backflow prevention system, give us a call today to keep your water and sewer safe.

    Pressure Regulators in Placentia

    Water pressure regulators control both the water pressure and the flow rate of the incoming water supply into your home. Regulators are used to allowing high-pressure water supply lines to be reduced to safe and usable pressures. A properly installed pressure regulator can eliminate many common plumbing problems, saving you both time and money in the long run. However, a damaged or worn-out pressure regulator can result in dangerously high-water pressure being present in your home. Many common issues can be easily prevented or solved through the installation or replacement of a water pressure regulator.

    Problems Caused by High Water Pressure:
    • Broken or burst pipes that can lead to flooding
    • Continual sound of running water
    • Running toilets
    • Damage to your appliances such as dishwashers, refrigerator ice makers, or washing machines
    • Banging pipe sounds
    • Leaking sprinkler valves
    • High water bills

    Our expertly trained professionals can help determine the unique needs of your plumbing system and what solution best works for your situation.

    Water Heater Inspections in Placentia

    The typical water heater is usually a cylindrical tank with a heat source in or below the tank used to heat entering cold water for the supply of hot water to a home when needed. Most residential water heaters have a 38- to 50-gallon, glass-lined steel tank (but can range up to 88 gallons). The heat source can be either natural gas or propane, oil, electricity, solar, or geothermal. The life expectancy of the average water heater is eight to 12 years for gas and oil, 10 to 15 for electrical, solar, and geothermal, and over 20 years for tankless (made of stainless steel).

    Noritz Tankless Hot water heater
    There are several different types of hot water systems used in the U.S., including indirect water heater systems, dual-purpose water heater systems, on-demand water heater systems (or tankless), high-efficiency gas systems, or direct vent systems. Indirect water heater systems use a boiler to heat the water. Dual-purpose water heaters also referred to as hedonic water heaters, use one of the heat types above and then store domestic water while circulating hot water through a heat exchanger connected to a forced-air furnace. On-demand water heaters, or tankless, only heat the water when there is a demand for it, and they do not have a storage tank. Instant water heaters are small (a half-gallon) and are located near the tap — a design that provides hot water for only one tap.

    Basic Components

    Whether the water heater uses gas, oil, or electricity to fuel the heat source, all water heaters share the following basic components:
    • Cold water inlet pipe
    • Cold water control valve
    • Cold water dip tube
    • Hot water outlet pipe
    • Anti-corrosion or sacrificial anode
    • Drain valve
    • Temperature/pressure relief valve
    • TPRV discharge tube

    Bill Metzger Plumbing offers a noninvasive way to test and locate leaks in the potable hot and cold water systems throughout the house.

    Slab Leak Detection in Placentia

    If you have a leak underneath or within your home’s concrete slab foundations, it can be a big problem — simple corrosion in older pipes or small leaks in soft copper pipes can start with higher utility bills and rapidly escalate into flooding and major damage. If you suspect that there is a problem with the pipes underneath your home — commonly, the hot water pipes — it is important to get an expert to look at it sooner rather than later. If you have had a catastrophic leak, then, of course, it’s important to shut off your main water and tank water heater lines as soon as possible — if you need help locating these, call us immediately.

    Sewer Line Replacement Placentia

    As full-service commercial and residential plumbers, we can replace sewer pipes to correct several problems. Commercial building owners are responsible for maintaining the pipes connecting their premises to the city sewer main, generally to the curb or sidewalk. Drain and sewer pipes left in disrepair could cause flooding and groundwater contamination, representing a serious environmental hazard.

    Bill Metzger Plumbing can fix that sewer line to correct several problems, including:

    Damaged pipes due to shifting soil, frozen ground, settling, etc.

    Grease buildup or a foreign object is restricting or prohibiting proper flow and/or cleaning of the line.

    The pipe has deteriorated and/or broken, causing sections of the pipe to collapse and restrict flow.

    The seals between pipes have broken, allowing water to escape into the area surrounding the pipe.

    A section of the pipe has sunk due to ground or soil conditions, creating a valley that collects paper and waste.

    Tree or shrub roots have invaded the sewer line, preventing normal cleaning, and/or roots have damaged the pipe.

    Existing pipes are constructed of substandard or outdated material that may have deteriorated or corroded.

    The re-piping process is also known as a re-pipe job (re-pipe, re-piping, re-piping, new piping, re-plumbing, re-plumbing, piping, and piping replacement). Re-piping is part of the plumbing C-36 license classification. We are licensed, expert plumbers. We are experienced, re-pipe specialists. As the pipes of a plumbing system age, these pipes will need to be replaced because of corrosion, rust, leaks, pinhole leaks, low water pressure, and rusty water. It is important to get pipes fixed as soon as possible because leaks destroy homes and cause mold, and this can cause costly damage that you may not even see until it is too late.

    Pipe Relining in Placentia

    Pipe relining is the process of repairing damaged sewer pipes by making, essentially, a pipe within a pipe to restore the functionality of your pipes. The epoxy relining materials that we use the mold to the inside of the existing pipe to create a smooth new inner wall. Many times, pipe relining can be performed through a building’s clean-out access and often requires little digging. Pipe relining may be used to repair pipes that have tree root damage, seal cracks and holes in the pipes, fill in missing pipes, and seal joint connections underground in roof drainpipes, storm lines, and under concrete. The relined pipe is seamless and durable, and all materials used in the relining process are non-hazardous.

    If you have a broken pipe, or possibly a tree root intrusion, contact the services of Bill Metzger Plumbing to fix your problems without having to dig a trench.

    Water Line Replacement in Placentia

    You no longer have to have a trench cut through your yard, sidewalk, or driveway to replace sewer or water pipes. With a small hole at each end of the run, we can pull pipes from the building to the main. We can even upsize a line from 4 inches to 6 inches to provide you with greater capacity. The trenchless method uses the existing damaged sewer line as a conduit and guides for the new pipe. A cone-shaped, path-clearing installation head with the new pipe attached is inserted through the old pipe. As the installation head passes through the existing pipe, it pulls in a full-size replacement pipe.

    After the installation of the new pipe is complete, it is simply connected to the existing system. This code-approved pipe is a completely root-proof, leak-proof, chemical, and acid-resistant pipe, with a 100-year design life. In the past, the only way to repair underground sewer or water pipes was to dig a trench, essentially destroying your front yard or sidewalk. Now, there are trenchless pipe repair and replacement options that minimize the impact on your landscaping — and your wallet.

    Pipe Bursting

    Pipe-bursting trenchless pipe replacement systems allow you to install new pipelines in the same or even larger diameter than the pipe being replaced with minimum excavation. Pipe-bursting systems can be used to replace deteriorated wastewater, water, and gas piping, including vitrified clay, cast iron, concrete, reinforced concrete, asbestos cement, and PVC with high-density polyethylene pipe. This heavy-duty HDPE pipe is available from 4 inches in diameter up to 36 inches in diameter. This high molecular weight pipe is corrosion-resistant and offers excellent flow characteristics. The use of continuous, fusion-welded pipe eliminates problem areas associated with joints such as leakage or infiltration, and permits installation in smooth, jointless lengths. Another advantage is its flexibility, which permits it to be laid in a gradual radius for use on curves and steep hillsides without the need for fittings or excavations.
