You maintain your car with regular oil changes and tune-ups, so shouldn’t you do the same for your plumbing equipment? Many emergency plumbing situations can be avoided by performing annual maintenance. Not only can regular maintenance help you save on repair costs, but it can also help to lower your utility bills and give you peace of mind.
Benefits of Regular Plumbing Inspection:
- Exposed plumbing system - We will visually inspect your plumbing to ensure total safety and functionality. We can recommend improvements that will save you money and maximize the efficiency of your system.
- Water heater - We will inspect the emergency water shut-off mechanism, drain valve, thermostat, gas/electric connections, temperature, pressure relief valve, temperature setting, gas thermocouple, emergency gas shut-off, flue pipe, and the draft to ensure your water heater is running like it should.
- Water service - We will thoroughly check your water pressure regulator. High pressure can damage a water heater or cause a pipe to burst in your plumbing system, so we will carefully check to make sure your water pressure stays constant.
- Sinks, faucets, tub, shower, dishwasher, disposal, toilet - We will check for leaks while examining the aerators, handles, mounting seal, drain flow, trap/tubing, water supplies, water shut-offs, pop-up operation, strainer, disposal, and dishwasher hose. A toilet test includes flush testing, seat inspection, bolt cap testing, base movement, supply line, and an emergency water shut-off test.
- Water softener - We will test for hardness and emergency water shut-off operation.
- Washing machine - Worn washing machine hoses could burst, resulting in flooding and expensive water damage, so we will check your emergency water shut-off, drain, and hoses.

Video Camera Plumbing Inspections
When you think about it, the degree to which plumbing technology has advanced in the last fifty years is quite amazing. Years ago, if a homeowner had a clogged or broken sewer drain, he had few options to fix it that weren't time consuming and expensive. In those days, the only true solution was to dig up the pipe by hand to diagnose the problem. In most instances, the reason for a clogged drain was a total mystery unless you picked up a shovel and started digging.
Today, however, things have changed in a big way. Thanks to modern technology like fiber optics and closed circuit video cameras, our plumbers can now use a camera to see exactly what's going on inside of your pipes without doing any digging at all.
By simply running a flexible, waterproof drain camera line into your clogged sewer line, we can see in vivid color what the problem is and where it needs attention. This means that it takes less time and effort, and cost less money, to fix your plumbing problems.
A video recording of the inspection, along with a detailed assessment report, can show the specific locations of any blockages, root intrusions, improperly fitted pipe work, or collapses in plumbing pipes. This allows our team of expert plumbers to quickly repair your sewer problems.
Eliminate the guesswork in your plumbing problem, and contact Fahrenheit Plumbing today for a professional video plumbing inspection that can help you know what is really going on inside of your plumbing and sewer pipe systems.
Leak Detection and Repairs
Leaks can occur in both old and new plumbing systems for a number of reasons. Old sludge or corrosive installation debris can stay within the radiator, leading to metal corrosion that eventually creates small holes that can cause leaks. A leaking pipe is never a fun problem to tackle. Leaks tend to pop up at the most inconvenient times, and you can’t stop most of them until you get a plumbing expert to perform an inspection and repair. If a pipe in your plumbing system is leaking, rather than risk further damage through performing a repair yourself, contact Fahrenheit Plumbing as soon as possible.
We believe that Orlando homeowners should enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing their plumbing and leak repairs are completed with the highest quality, so we offer a quality guarantee on all plumbing repairs. You can expect our highly skilled plumbing technicians to provide polite and professional service whenever a leak pops up. If you’re struggling with a leak in your home, call us today!
Underground Line Detection
Do you know where all the pipes and gas lines are on your property? It is safe to say that most homeowners don't, and it’s also safe to say that no one wants excessive digging done in their yard. Thankfully, there are devices out there that can locate pipes and ducts underground without having to dig. Our skilled plumbers are trained to use these detection devices and to quickly locate leaks and broken pipes.
Underground line detection, which is achieved by electrically finding underground lines with detector machines, is another technique that plumbers use in drain cleaning, plumbing installation, and plumbing repairs. The detectors usually have inductive signal transmission system that indicates the presence of an underground line on the LCD display, so our plumbing professionals can get a clear view of your underground pipes without the need to dig. Whether you’re preparing to remodel your home, or you think your underground pipes may be contributing to indoor plumbing problems, contact us today to schedule an underground inspection.
Backflow Prevention and Installation
Automated monitoring systems, as well as a traditional backflow prevention apparatus, can be installed to your specification with our custom designs. When it comes to backflow prevention, don’t settle for the average plumber. Ensure that your water quality remains high by placing your trust in Fahrenheit Plumbing.
Q: What are the differences between backflow prevention devices?
A: For most installations, DEP specifies approved air gap RPZ backflow preventers on main incoming water services. However, there are many cases in which check valves and vacuum breakers are practical and acceptable solutions.
Q: Must backflow prevention devices be provided on all incoming water services?
A: Yes, with few exceptions. A professional engineer must determine the correct application for each service, e.g. domestic, sprinkler, and combination domestic/fire protection. The installation of the wrong device can prove quite costly, so it’s important to choose the right one.
Fahrenheit Plumbing installs, repairs, and maintains all types of backflow prevention systems and devices, from common irrigation controllers to large-scale commercial and industrial water purification process. Contact us today for a quote!

Piping Repair / Installation
There are many types of pipes, and some are more appropriate for specific jobs than others. To help you with the decisions, here is an overview of the main types of pipe used in residential remodeling.
- PVC (polyvinyl chloride) can be used only for cold water. PVC is most often used to carry water from the main supply to a home. If you decide to use PVC, be sure that the pipe you choose is approved for drinking water.
- ABS (acrylonitrite-butadiene-styrene) is used primarily in bathrooms for waste removal, drain, and venting. It is a rigid plastic pipe that can be connected to several kinds of metal pipe. ABS is not permitted everywhere, so if you are considering this type of pipe, you will need to check with your contractor.
- PEX can be used to carry both hot and cold water. It is often used for interior water pipes in residential plumbing.
- CPVC (chlorine-polyvinyl-chloride) is generally used to carry hot water, and is often used as a substitute for copper pipe.
- Cast Iron is used in some parts of the country for drainage. It is very strong and very durable, but it is also hard to cut and very heavy. If your project involves replacing a cast iron pipe, PVC is a good choice because it can be joined with cast iron.
- Copper is ideal for both hot and cold water supply lines, and it is very resistant to corrosion. It is light and durable, but it costs more. If you are replacing copper pipe, a good choice is CPVC.
- Galvanized steel is not used very often today because it corrodes over time and is hard to work with. It was used in the past for water supply lines.
If you need to replace the piping in your home, call us today to speak with a skilled plumbing professional who can help you make the best decision for your home.

Recirculating Pump Repair
Are you tired of waiting an eternity for warm water after turning on your shower or sink faucet? Fortunately, there is an easy solution. You can solve this problem by simply installing a hot water recirculating pump.
Some recirculating pumps have a thermostat that measures the temperature of the standing water in the pipeline. The measurement is taken at the fixture that is furthest from the heater. When the temperature drops below a preset limit, the pump is activated and pumps water from the heating unit into the line. At the same time, the cooled water inside the line is pumped through the cold line back to the heater. Through this recirculating loop, the pump will provide you with instant hot water whenever you need it.
These pumps also help you conserve water. In an era where water crisis looms large, recirculating pumps will help you reuse valuable water simply through filtration and recirculation. If you’re interested in the convenience of a hot water recirculating pump, call us today to find out more!

Water Conditioning Systems
Most people are unaware that during a shower, your exposure to harmful chemicals is dramatically increased. This is largely related to the volume of water you are exposed to, and the fact that the shower actually vaporizes these chemicals so you breathe them in and absorb them through your lungs and skin. Warm water can actually cause your skin to become like a sponge and absorb harmful chemicals in water.
If you are purchasing organic produce and washing them in untreated tap water, you are applying the toxic chemicals that you are paying so much extra to avoid. If you want to sustain a healthy and vital lifestyle, arranging for clean filtered water to pour from every tap in your house is the single most important thing you can do. At Fahrenheit Plumbing, our water filtration experts can come assess your home and help you select the best water filtration system for your lifestyle. Call us today to schedule an appointment!
