Our professional plumbers can utilize their years of experience and knowledge of the intricacies of your system to effectively locate, diagnose, and alleviate your plumbing issue.

Purchasing water is a popular trend these days. From the gym to the grocery store people are carrying bought plastic water bottles. A water filtration system can ease the cost and preserve the quality of water you already pay the city to use in your own home. Your New York City NY water filtration plumbing service can install and service water treatment and softeners for your home.
Bottled water is cleaner, healthier and tastes better than tap water. House tap water often contains the taste and odor of chlorine, lead, mercury, agricultural pollutants and often local sediment. These pollutants can come from corroded plumbing systems, decay, landfill run-off or local croplands. Unfiltered house water not only affects your drinking water, but the water you use for laundry, washing your hands, and washing off in the shower. What if you could have that same clean, healthy, tasty water without having to go to the store or recycle the bottles after use?
HUB Plumbing, your local New York City NY plumbing service, can provide a professionally installed home water filtration system. Our water filter and water softener systems will guarantee purified water throughout your home. From drinking water to faucet, shower, and laundry water; your water will be clean and healthy.
HUB Plumbing will also check the water for hardness, iron and PH levels. Treating your water efficiently is just as important as having clean water on hand. Our most valuable resource, water, should be treated as such and your New York City plumber is here with expertise on local water conditions and how to treat them.

Routine maintenance on your garbage disposal is simple, quick and can keep your disposal running for an extended period of time. Use these home garbage disposal maintenance tips to help prevent odors, blockages, costly repairs, and early replacement.
Remember to run cold water during use for at least 20 seconds. Garbage disposals need water running through the pipes to flush waste and prevent stoppages.
Limit the amount of food you put in your garbage disposal at one time. Allowing too much food into the pipes, although chopped, can quickly cause them to back up. Should you encounter a clogged drain or clogged pipes, HUB Plumbing, your New York City NY plumber, is available for immediate plumbing service.
Avoid pouring harsh chemicals, foreign objects, coffee grounds, or bones into the garbage disposal. Also, grind small scraps of citrus peels in the garbage disposal to keep it smelling fresh.
Grinding ice cubes while running cold water in the garbage disposal will help sharpen the blades and keep it clean. Always call your local New York City plumbing company when routine residential plumbing maintenance is not enough.
There are many methods to cleaning clogged drains. The most popular methods are a plunger and a harsh chemical gel or liquid cleaner. If you want to go green and keep the more toxic chemicals out of your home and pipes, then there are a few things to understand.
Green drain cleaners or “enzymatic” drain cleaners feed on the organic waste in the drain through enzymes. They then digest and reproduce creating “good” bacteria that continues to spread all without the use of harsh or dangerous chemical. Undoubtedly, this is better for your pipes and the rest of your home, yard and family.
If you don’t want to purchase a green drain cleaner, there are plenty of home remedy mixtures for unclogging your drain. Try pouring boiling hot water down the drain. Heat can be a great tool to loosen clumped or crusted waste. Mixtures of baking soda, vinegar, and salt flushed with hot water after sitting for 30 minutes to an hour can also help unclog most drains without the use of harsh or toxic chemicals.
The best way to keep your drain clean is through preventative plumbing maintenance. Clean your sink strainers and stoppers. Don’t pour just anything down your sink or shower drain. Avoid pouring grease and large chunks of food down your drain or disposal. Buy screen covers for your shower drain to avoid hair buildup.
When in doubt, always call the professionals at your local New York City NY plumbing service. HUB Plumbing & Mechanical is here for all your residential plumbing repair and maintenance. Give us a call or go online to schedule an appointment now.
