Plumbing vents are an essential part of your plumbing system. Vent pipes allow air to flow into the drainage system, so that pressure is equalized in the pipes and waste can flow passively out to the sewage or septic system. Blocked or incorrectly installed plumbing vents can cause sewer odors, gurgling noises, and poor drainage. Below we look at how to find and identify your sewer vent pipe.

 Most of the time, we don't put much thought into where a water heater will be installed. Conventional tank-style water heaters are often installed in the corner of the basement or a closet, while tankless style water heaters can be installed in the same location as a tank water heater would be, or closer to the point of use. Are there any places a water heater can't be installed? Here we look at the considerations to keep in mind when installing a water heater, and where you should avoid installing a water heater.

Tankless water heaters offer greater convenience, performance, and energy savings with compact units that produce hot water on demand.

Just like hot water heaters, on-demand water heaters can use a variety of different fuel sources including electricity, natural gas, and propane.

Choosing a new water heater replacement can be overwhelming with the number of options available. It can be helpful to first decide on the style of water heater you want and then choose your option for fuel type. Energy efficiency is one of the greatest priorities for those looking for a hot water heater replacement as this offers savings both financially and for the environment. Here we break down the options for water heater replacements by the variables you can choose from including style, fuel type, and capacity or size.

Below are the essential steps you should take if you notice water under your water heater.
