Folks, if you're finding yourself in a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) plumbing situation and make a mistake, don't despair. Don't stress yourself out like I had done =0)) And actually it's not even funny! I thought to myself: "That's it! The faucet and sink would be out of service for days now!" I was driving myself bananas! Call your plumber or a reputable plumbing shop like Preferred Plumbing. At least, to diagnose the issue properly. Nowadays, things can be rectified a lot easier and quicker than you'd think... I've just had my P-trap pipes repaired under the bathroom sink (in a condo) — with Preferred Plumbing. What an admirable team there: from the Main office intake (Maggie) all the way to the owner Raphie himself! ...with Daniel T. being the initial consultant, Dominic Z. the star Tech who fixed it all for me and Josh the Assistant with a friendly beard on the team. The thing which was giving me grief was the P-trap pipe portion that had been 'bloody' soldered to the the main pipe from the building (coming from behind the wall)! Obviously, the kind of thing you don't usually have the tools for as an average Joe. How I got to that point? Don't ask, ok? Just don't ask. I'd already broken an edge of that P-trap portion that's attached to the main pipe from the building (by trying to tighten it up a notch, seeing that it was still leaking). In short, I needed an emergency repair to replace the entire P-trap pipe as a result. My mind was racing with all sorts of scenarios: what if the repair is too complex and unaffordable, what if it takes days to fix — because of some permit, property management involvement or the tool required? But guess what... I called up the shop and found it wasn't as scary as the situation first presented itself. The entire team Preferred Plumbing Solutions worked like special ops: they had all the tools, were ready to rock, on time and put all the options on the table upfront. No surprises. No delays. Needless to say, I'm so relieved it's done. Phew! Good job, team! Appreciate your coming to help me out on the same day.

To start they were to be my house on a Wednesday Feb 1 2023 at 9:00am and 5 minutes to 9:00 the person from Preferred calls me on my cell to say they are running a few minutes late and apologized.The person said he would be happy to bring me a coffee. Who does that - a thoughtful gesture.They arrived at 9:05 am and promptly assessed what needed to be done to fix a broken kitchen faucet.They gave me 3 options at 3 price points and I choose one. The work was done quickly, promptly and on budget - 3 out of 3. The plumbing technicians were courteous, polite and efficient - again, 3 out of 3. Can't say enough positive things about the people and this company. Also my front door lock was loose and one of the technicians had a screwdriver and decided on his own volition to tighten the screws and now the door lock works much better. They will be the first plumbing company I call when and if I have any other plumbing issues in my house. This is a legit review. Andrew

Raphie was incredibly professional and kind. I've never had a better experience with a service company of any kind. I would absolutely call Preferred Plumbing Solutions again if I encounter future problems and I highly recommend them. The attention to detail, thoroughness and above and beyond service was refreshing. Raphie even cleaned up after and cleared all the garbage for me, which no one has ever done. The details matter and say a lot about the way any business genuinely cares for it's customers. Thanks Raphie!

The service amazing. Punctual. Professional. Fixed the problem. At this sensitive time of covid 19. I was asked if I was comfortable with their covid 19 precautions which I was because I saw how careful they were. Gloves masks protective footwear coverings as well as sensitized and wipes. They left my home sanitized clean and soled my problem. Thank you preferred plumbing

Preferred plumbing went above and beyond to explain their services and help with our master bathroom. Even after the service is done, they offered to call my insurance to support my case for draining issues needing to be fixed. I’m so impressed with their customer service, even as a follow up once the service was paid and completed!

As always, I could rely on Preferred Plumbing to arrive exactly when they said they would. The service guy was so pleasant and accommodating. He explained everything to me clearly and patiently before beginning the repairs, and made sure I was ok with what needed to be done. I’m always amazed at how clean my bathroom is after these service guys leave. Everything is done with such courtesy and respect for the home owner. It was a positive experience from beginning to end. And of course the work is always done to perfection with such attention to detail.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Backwater Valve?

When there’s a heavy rainfall, there’s a great risk of basements getting overfilled and homeowners having to deal with a water backup issue. Worse, homeowners can also deal with dirty raw sewage parading into their basements, causing further unimaginable damage. Lucky there’s a way to prevent this and that is through installing a backwater valve.

Do backwater valves need maintenance?
Yes, backwater valves should be maintained on a regular basis to ensure proper functioning. Regular maintenance might include replacing the washer and gasket in the valve, checking for corrosion and obstructions, and tightening any loose bolts or nuts. Additionally, it’s important to make sure that the valve is free of debris and properly secured in order to prevent any water leakage. If you are unsure how to perform maintenance on your backwater valve, it’s best to call us to come out and inspect the valve.
How do you inspect a backwater valve?
A backwater valve inspection should involve a thorough examination of the entire system in order to determine its current condition and identify any potential issues. Start by visually inspecting the valve and all of its parts for signs of corrosion, leaks, cracks, and other damage.

Then, verify that the packing nut is properly tightened and inspect the washer and gasket for signs of wear or tear. Finally, check to make sure that the valve is free of obstructions and properly secured into place.

How long do backflow valves last?
Backflow valves can last for many years if they are properly maintained and regularly inspected. The exact lifespan of a backflow valve will vary depending on the model, manufacturer, and amount of use. Generally speaking, backflow valves should be replaced after 10-15 years or sooner if they have been damaged due to corrosion or other factors.

It is also important to note that backflow preventers that are not inspected regularly may not last as long as those with regular maintenance schedules.
