Plumbing Someone’s Dream Bathroom

Have you ever wondered, just a little bit, what goes into building someone’s dream bathroom. You know, those one’s you see on Houzz, or HGTV with all the different shower heads, just looking like a little bit of heaven?

We are going to give you a peek at what goes on behind the walls of that dream bathroom. At IRC. we call this a real plumbing job . This shower will be gorgeous when it’s all done, with  6 body sprays with different diverters, plus two normal shower with their own diverters and then a rain head to share on another valve. Lucien got to use his preference, copper piping, which is more expensive and time consuming but nothing compares.

Whether you are a plumber or not, look at the symmetry of these pipes, forget the studs and the other items around them, and just see how beautifully everything is lined up. This is not something we get to do every day .

Leak Detection

leak detection IRC plumbing, Sebastian Florida

We talked about having an undetected water leak in your home, and how we can find it quickly using our leak detection device, but what can you do yourself to detect a leak?

  1. If you suspect a leak, the first thing to do is shut off all your faucets, showers, the water valve leading to your washer, and your toilets and check to see if your meter continues to run.
  2.  If you have a well on your property, check to see if it is running constantly.
  3. If you don’t have water gushing into your house, send someone outside to where your meter is located. Flush the toilets one at a time, wait until the tank fills back up, then check to see if the meter is still running.
  4. If water is pouring out, locate the main water shut off for your home and shut that off and call us.

Because water doesn’t always puddle at the source of a leak, if your leak is not one you can find quickly using any of the above methods, IRC plumbing has Leak Detection Equipment which takes the guess work out of finding leaks.

We have been in the plumbing business here in Indian River County for enough years that we can tell where some of the more common sources of leaks will be, but sometimes leaks are sneaky and they occur in less obvious areas. The most difficult leaks to pinpoint can be leaks in your slab. That is why we have made the investment in Leak Detector.

Leak detectors use sound to detect where a leak is coming from. It is actually more complex than that, but you don’t need the details, you just need to know that we know how to read the information that comes from our Leak Detection Equipment in order to diagnose and ultimately repair whatever leaks are causing you problems.

Outdoor Shower Installation

As so often happens in the plumbing business, we got a last minute call from  friends at LaPorte Farms. Is just so happened they were hosting an out of state 4H group and needed an outside shower for them.  They gave us very short notice, but Lucien put aside his Father’s Day celebration and got it done.

We always aim to please, if you have plumbing needs just call us @ 772/696/3747

Leak Detection

People think the first sign of a leak somewhere in your home is water. That is true sometimes, and other times it is your water bill. If you usually pay $60 per month for water, and this month the bill is $200, then you have a leak!

We had one customer whose water bill spiked like this, with none of the usual puddles appearing around their home. So where was the leak? In this particular instance it was a toilet in their bathroom. It wasn’t making any noise because it was dripping ever so slightly, but it was constant and it caused their water meter to keep running. Because there weren’t any visible signs of a leak, that is the first place we checked. It was a simple and relatively inexpensive leak to fix, and the next month their water bill was back to normal, but it was a good thing they had us check it out or they would have continued to have overly high water bills.

Slab leaks are another one that can be difficult to detect. If you have a slow leak from a pinhole in a pipe, back behind a piece of furniture, they can be difficult to detect, and as the water leaks it can take a pinhole in a pipe and overtime the hole will get bigger, ultimately causing a much larger problem.

If you water bill seems to be rising each month, and you haven’t had extra company or aren’t doing more laundry, it is a good idea to give us a call, and Lucien can use our leak detection equipment to track down that leak for you.

IRC Takes Care Of Vero Disney

Plumbing problems at Disney resort fixed by IRC plumbing

 

One of the happiest places on earth had a plumbing issue and we took care of it for them. Disney’s Vero Beach Resort called us in to fix a broken pipe on a Sunday. Unfortunately it got some wedding guest wet in the banquet room .

No job is too big or too small and we make every effort to respond as quickly as possible. This particular repair took Lucien six hours to find the leak and fix but he kept at it until it was fixed ! It takes a plumber with training and knowledge as well as persistence to find and repair a leak like this one.  It was all the way up  in the ceiling of the third floor.

Another plumber was nice enough to leave us a broken snake in the line and that’s probably why these two tubs have been clogging for years.

It pays to call IRC Plumbing!!
