Give Crawford Mechanical Services a call next time your drain clogs and we’ll put our jetter machine to work for you! Read on to learn more about one of our favorite, powerful, plumbing tools. What is a Jetter Machine? A jetter machine is a lot like a pressure washer except that it blasts nearly four times the water that a typical pressure washer uses. We wouldn’t be able to get that amount of water from your tap, so our jetter machine comes with several hundred gallons of water stored in tanks and ready to blast the clogs out of your drain. How Powerful is It? The diesel engine on our jetter machine packs a few dozen horsepower. A few dozen horsepower wouldn’t be much for a car, but it will do the trick for blasting clogs out of a drain. A sewer jetter machine blasts enough water at a high enough pressure to drill a hole in a 2-by-4. What Are the Benefits of Using a Sewer Jetter?

What Bathroom Faucet is Best for You?

Whether you are remodeling your bathroom or simply want to update the existing hardware, the type of faucet you choose should be  convenient, efficient and attractive. That means there is more to consider than just their outward appearance. Keep these things in mind as you shop for new faucets. Budget Fitting your existing sink with new faucets can range from under $50 to upwards of $500 for top-of-the-line hardware. Before you begin the process, consider how much you are ready and willing to invest in updating the old fixtures. If others will be part of the decision-making process, take the time to discuss your budget and set some guidelines. This will prevent you from making impulsive decisions that may overextend your budget. Size Measure the existing sink and determine whether the faucet base is a single-hole, center-set or a wide-spread sink. Single-hole sinks require either a single-handled faucet or two small faucets. A center-set sink has three holes and can accommodate either a single-handled faucet or double faucets that are mounted on a plate. A wide-spread sink can accommodate large two-handled faucet designs. Snapping a photo of your existing sink and faucets and taking it with you when you shop is recommended. Knowing the correct size and layout of your sink avoids the need to make alterations to your sink or plumbing to accommodate new faucets. Style Style refers to both the silhouette and finish of the faucet. This ranges from standard chrome to brushed nickel or bronze. If you have your heart set on arcing faucets in brushed metal, make sure they are available for the shower and tub, too, so...
