What are your service areas?
We service the west and far west suburbs of Chicago.  This includes DuPage, Kane, Kendall, McHenry counties.
Do you install water heaters?
Yes. We service and install both gas and electric water heaters.
Do you fix garbage disposals?
Yes we do but before calling us for a jammed disposal, try the reset switch located on the bottom of most disposals. It may save you a service call.
I hear a rumbling coming from the water heater, can this be fixed?

If this is an older water heater, it is an indication that sediment has built up on the bottom of the water heater. When water is trapped in the sediment and boils, it makes a rumbling sound. It also indicates that the water heater is not operating efficiently.  Sediment prevents heat from transferring to the water in the tank.  Sometimes it can be fixed but it may be cost effective to replace the water heater if the buildup is severe.

Are you bonded and insured?
Absolutely! One Good Plumber is bonded, insured, maintains a state contractors license and is owned and operated by a journeyman plumber.
Will you install a fixture that I previously purchased?
Yes, you don't have to purchase your plumbing fixtures through me. If you have a faucet, toilet, water heater, etc that needs to be installed, we would be happy to take care of that for you.  No job is too small.

How long can I expect my water heater to last?

A typical warranty is 6 to 12 years, which is also the average life of a tank.  If the water heater is subjected to heavy use, it may shorted the tank's life
Can you fix a problem with a change in water temperature in the shower when the toilet is flushed?
Yes.  Homes built before the early 1990's commonly did not have pressure-balanced valves. Depending on the house layout we typically recommend replacing the shower valves to fix the problem.
