Our technicians will be at your residence as soon as possible, bringing state-of-the-art equipment with us to complete the job in a timely and efficient manner—so you can get back to your normal life quickly.

Present-day water-supply systems use a network of high-pressure pumps, and pipes in buildings are now made of copper, brass, plastic (particularly cross-linked polyethylene called PEX, which is estimated to be used in 60% of single-family homes), or other nontoxic material. Due to its toxicity, most cities moved away from lead water-supply piping by the 1920s in the United States, although lead pipes were approved by national plumbing codes into the 1980s, and lead was used in plumbing solder for drinking water until it was banned in 1986. Drain and vent lines are made of plastic, steel, cast-iron, or lead.

Sometimes a faucet leak can be stopped by replacing the rubber washer at the end of a faucet stem or cartridge. This is a more common repair on older fixtures when things were built to last and designed to be able to be maintained. Other times the whole stem or cartridge needs replacement or the bibb seat deeper back into the fixture needs replacement. That leads to matching up the right components and often times making a trip to the hardware store or plumbing supply house necessary due to the many varieties, makes and models of faucets. My advice is to make sure your Plumber has faucet repair kit on their truck before having them come out to assess the issue.

Pete was scheduled to come address a leak in my house. The leak got much worse before my appointment & Pete came over on a SUNDAY and fixed the problem within an hour. He was courteous, neat & his rate was more than reasonable. He also answered several plumbing questions I had that were unrelated to his visit. Overall, just a nice guy and an excellent plumber. Thanks Pete.

Most states and localities require plumbers to be licensed. Although licensing requirements vary, most states and localities require workers to have 2 to 5 years of experience and to pass an exam that shows their knowledge of the trade and of local plumbing codes before they are permitted to work independently. In addition, most employers require plumbers to have a driver’s license.

You may think a tiny little drip should be an easy fix, but it can actually turn into a pretty complicated job. A faucet leak can be caused by a number of things. Before you can fix the leak in your faucet, it is important to know what is causing the leak. Faucets have moving parts that can wear down over time and may need to be tightened, repaired, or replaced. When you call us, one of our licensed plumbers will complete the following tasks:
“We had a toilet emergency one morning. After unsuccessful plunging efforts, we called Intelligent Service – and within 20 minutes, they were at our house. They found that the sewer line from our house to the street had snapped. Within 2 hours they had a permit and a backhoe in our front yard, and started work. By 5:00pm, we had water! They were extremely sympathetic to our situation. They were careful not to track snow and mud into the house. They cleaned up the area both inside and outside. Have already recommended the company to the many neighbors.”
The difference between pipes and tubes is simply in the way it is sized. PVC pipe for plumbing applications and galvanized steel pipe for instance, are measured in IPS (iron pipe size). Copper tube, CPVC, PeX and other tubing is measured nominally, which is basically an average diameter. These sizing schemes allow for universal adaptation of transitional fittings. For instance, 1/2" PeX tubing is the same size as 1/2" copper tubing. 1/2" PVC on the other hand is not the same size as 1/2" tubing, and therefore requires either a threaded male or female adapter to connect them. When used in agricultural irrigation, the singular form "pipe" is often used as a plural.
