There is one number that every homeowner should have "speed dialed" into their phones, and that is the number of a trustworthy, reliable and highly skilled Master Plumber - a plumber just like Mike Manning of Manning Plumbing. Mike Manning has been tinkering with plumbing since he was in high school, and after years of tutelage under the mentorship of a talented uncle and several years of union experience, he became a licensed Master Plumber and opened his own business, Manning Plumbing, in 2010. Manning is committed to being the best plumber to answer your call - no matter the plumbing problem, he is equipped, efficient and ready to respond. As a small business owner, he knows the value of your time and money. His goal: deliver timely, affordable and quality workmanship. No exceptions.
Homeowners may not know that water is the single most cause of damage to their property - that is until they come upon a flooded basement or burst water pipe! Did you know that roughly 30% of home water-damage insurance claims actually come from appliance failure and another 62% come from faulty plumbing systems? The biggest culprits: water heaters and washing machines. Manning explains that water heaters are lined with a fiberglass coating that, as it wears thin, exposes the steel wall to the corrosion of water, and to ultimate failure. Manning knows that even the most conscientious homeowners will come up against water damage caused by such breaks, and he vows to be on hand to tackle (and prevent!) that damage head on.
Manning Plumbing offers a wide range of plumbing services, including the installation, maintenance and plumbing repairs of appliances such as hot water heaters (check out their surprising cost- cutting offer in the business section), washing machines, dishwashers, garbage disposals, refrigerators, and water filtration systems.
Manning will help you decide which sump pump system is best suited for your property and will install it just in time for the wet spring days ahead. He installs all bathroom fixtures (toilets, sinks, vanities, showers, bathtubs) and fixes all those destructive leaky faucets and pipes. One of the most common areas of a home involves appliances in your basement. As Manning investigates those problem areas, he is on the look out for signs of damage, corrosion or age so as to forewarn you before a minor problem becomes a big, expensive one. You name the plumbing problem, he is on it.
As the weather warms and activities force us out into the sunshine, Manning recommends considering adding a "Deduct meter" to your home. This water meter deducts water used outside from your city sewer bill and may be a worthwhile cost saving measure, especially for pool owners.
Michael Manning can be reached during regular business hours, Mon-Friday at 286-9585. He is available after hours and on weekends for emergencies only.
