pool-pumps-repairYour pool is likely going to see a lot of use in the summer months.

Monday, May 29th, 2017 by Butter Plumbing

Those signs can include, but are not limited to, the following: (more…)

3 Signs of Trouble with Your Sewer Line

Monday, April 17th, 2017 by Butter Plumbing

sewer-lineThe sewer line is the main means of removing waste from your drains, connecting your home’s plumbing system to the larger civic sewer system. Most of the time, it’s buried beneath the ground in your yard, keeping it out of sight and letting it do its job effectively and efficiently. Unfortunately, it can encounter trouble from time to time, and when it does its underground nature can be quite a thorny issue. Corrosion or shifting earth can cause leaks, while tree roots form your yard can be drawn to the sewage and wreak all manner of havoc.
