Unhook your Garden Hoses before Winter.

I know it seems early to be concerned with such things, but sooner than you think there will be an overnight freeze in the Columbus area. When that occurs, an attached garden hose could become a real threat. That is something we as home and business owners in Columbus, Ohio can easily avoid!

Here is what may happen. Because there are the remains of water in your entwined hoses, during the colder temperatures, this water can freeze, causing the water that lingers in the pipes to crack. If you have a "frost-free" spigot, you may not even know there is a problem until you turn the hose back on in the spring.

Your friends at Staats Plumbing want to help you avoid unnecessary plumbing emergencies as the seasons are about to change. Brent and his crew will be there when you need them. Just call Staats Plumbing, serving Columbus, at (740) 625-5284. For the full story of plumbing emergencies as well as routine maintenance just google staatsplumbing.com.

This Could Be the Right Summer to Have Your Water Heater Tested.

To say that your water heater is an important appliance would be the understatement of the century. It is important to schedule regular maintenance for your water heater. Brent at Staats Plumbing in Columbus Ohio is just the man to give your home or office water heater a “clean bill of health.”

One key factor is the location of the water heater. It should be installed in the proper place and set at the right temperature. Check #1 should center around observing the plumbing joints for excessive or unusual corrosion. All the gas supply parts should be checked for any flammable material surrounding these areas. The water supply should also be checked by turning on a nearby hot water tap and listening for any unusual sounds.
