Description of the Problem

In Levittown, PA, a homeowner faced plumbing challenges on multiple fronts, prompting a call to McHales for expert solutions. Two pressing issues were at hand – the need for a water heater replacement and a toilet replacement. Both fixtures had served their time and were showing signs of age-related problems. If you’re in need of any plumbing replacement in Levittown, PA, contact us today! 

Job Site Conditions

The water heater in question was a stalwart 80-gallon unit, having faithfully served the household since its installation in the late 1990s or early 2000s. Its age, coupled with potential efficiency concerns, made it a prime candidate for replacement. Additionally, the first-floor bathroom’s toilet, dating back to 1999, not only struggled with consistent flushing but also suffered from significant calcium and mineral buildup within the tank and bowl.

To ensure a seamless replacement process, McHales took extra measures to protect the home. Floor protection was meticulously laid down in both work areas, extending all the way to the front door. This safeguarded the flooring and the carpet.

As an added benefit, the homeowner enjoyed a 20% discount as a family member of McHales team member Mark K., a testament to our commitment to customer satisfaction and loyalty.

Job Details

The plumbing replacements commenced with a methodical approach. They first shut off the water supply to the home and then drained the entire house to prepare for the replacements.
