A Quick Look at the Rinnai Tankless Water Heater

Appliances are constantly changing and evolving, and conventional water heaters aren’t the only option anymore. A tankless water heater can save space and energy while making your home more convenient. Watch this video for a closer look at the Rinnai tankless water heater.

The difference between conventional and tankless water heaters is the presence of the tank. Conventional heaters store water in a tank, so the water is susceptible to standby heat loss. Tankless water heaters heat the water on the spot, which saves a significant amount of energy. In addition, you won’t run out of water or deal with the rust and leaks that come with older models.

At All Plumbing, Inc., we’ll set you up with the water heater in Arlington, VA that is right for you. Call (703) 525-7973 with your tankless water heater questions, or head over to our website for more information.

Your Plumber Can Design an Efficient System for Your New Home

When you think about the efficiency of your home, think about all the different systems that require energy and what you can do to reduce waste. The quality of your plumbing system will determine how effective and efficient it is, which also affects aspects like cost and comfort. Here’s how your plumber can design an efficient system for your new home.

Tankless Water Heaters

If you want to boost your home’s energy efficiency with one appliance, a tankless water heater might be the way to go. Some conventional water heaters are relatively efficient, but they’re no match for the efficiency that comes with a tankless heater. Without the tank, there’s no risk for standby heat loss. That means you’ll get to use all the heat you generate. The tankless heater will heat your water as you need it, so you won’t run out and you won’t have to continuously reheat water you’re not using.

Efficient Fixtures

Tankless water heaters can make a huge difference, but there are many elements of your plumbing system that will shape your new home’s efficiency. Low-flow toilets and showerheads can be great choices for the bathroom. These modern toilets will use less water to flush away waste, and some come with multiple settings so you can balance power and efficiency. Low-flow showerheads control the amount of water that comes out, so you can still get clean without wasting too much water.

Recycle Graywater

You can make plumbing appliances like your shower, dishwasher, or washing machine even more efficient by recycling graywater. Graywater is the water that is used when you take a shower or run these appliances, and although you shouldn’t drink it, you can recycle it. Graywater recovery systems allow you to harness this water and use it to wash the exterior of your house or irrigate your landscape.

If you’re in need of new plumbing design, don’t hesitate to call All Plumbing, Inc. at (703) 525-7973. We’re commercial and residential plumbers near Arlington, VA, and it’s our job to help you make your plumbing system as efficient as possible.

Why Is It Bad to Pour Grease Down the Drain?

You may have been told since childhood that it’s bad to pour grease down the drain, but did anyone tell you why this is so? Grease that enters your drain builds up inside your plumbing pipes, and eventually it combines with other fats and oils to cause harmful backups. If you’ve been wondering why it’s bad to pour grease down the drain, read on for more details.

Buildup in Plumbing Pipes

When you finish up your meal and scrape your scraps into the garbage disposal, make sure no grease makes its way down. Grease is a dangerous enemy for your plumbing system. It can cause clogs at any point during its journey down the pipes. Many people think that running hot water helps because it melts the grease, but in fact this just pushes the grease down the pipe. Eventually it will coagulate again and cause the path through your pipes to narrow.

Combination with Other Fats and Oils

Even if grease manages to get down your drain without causing clogs, the threat isn’t over quite yet. Once the grease gets to the sewer, it combines with the rest of the wastewater, which includes other fats and oils. As fats in the grease are broken down, the fatty acids and calcium come together to form a soapy substance. The “fatbergs” continue to grow and stick to the ceilings of the pipes. Drain cleaners might provide some initial relief for your drains, but they can make the problem worse overall.

Obstructions, Backups, and Health Issues

It’s difficult enough to break through obstructions in your own pipes, so think about how much harder it is to break through fats and oils that have built up between entire neighborhoods. Obstructions can cause full backups that cause sewage to come back into your home. This leads to a range of health issues.

Pouring grease down the drain causes problems for your plumbing in Arlington, VA that you’ll have to fix, so find another solution for your fats and oils. If you’re already in need of repair, call the plumbing contractors at All Plumbing, Inc. at (703) 525-7973 for help.

What Are Some Potential Causes of Slow Drains?

Slow drains usually occur when some kind of obstruction is preventing water from moving through the drain system quickly and efficiently. Although they may initially be more of an annoyance than a problem, they can escalate into serious issues that can cause damage to your plumbing system and home. If you have a slow drain, call your plumber to find out what is causing it and how to fix it. Here is a look at some of the most common causes of slow drains.


If your slow drain is in your shower or bathroom sink, there is a good chance that hair is the culprit. Everyone sheds hairs every day, and they tend to come out while you are showering or when you are standing over the sink fixing your hair. Even if only a few hairs enter your drain each day, eventually they will build up and cause your drain to slow down. Putting a guard over the drain will help to reduce hair buildup and keep your drains flowing smoothly.


Kitchen drains often get clogged with grease. Grease will build up in your drains when you rinse dishes and when you run your dishwasher. It helps to be conscientious about not pouring large amounts of grease, such as bacon fat, down the drain, but over time, small amounts from your plates can accumulate in your pipes and slow down your drain.


One of the most serious causes of slow drains is tree roots that penetrate the pipes. If the roots cause small cracks, the issue may not be noticeable at first, but eventually, they can grow large and take up space in the pipes, slowing down the drainage. This problem needs immediate attention by your plumber.

For help with slow drains or other common plumbing issues, call All Plumbing, Inc. We offer comprehensive plumbing services in Arlington, VA for residential and commercial properties. To schedule an appointment with a plumber, call (703) 525-7973.

What Could Cause a Sudden Loss of Water Pressure?

A sudden loss of water pressure isn’t just annoying. It can also indicate that you have a serious issue that needs the attention of an emergency plumber. Failing to get emergency plumbing services when you lose water pressure could lead to even more significant—and expensive—damage.

Although problems with the municipal water supply can affect your water pressure, a sudden drop is more likely to indicate an issue in your residential plumbing system. If temperatures have been cold, frozen pipes could be an issue. If you have a well, water pressure can drop if the pump has been damaged. A blockage in your plumbing or leak could also lead to water pressure issues. These problems can lead to burst pipes and serious water damage to your home.

For emergency plumbing repairs in Arlington, VA, get in touch with All Plumbing, Inc. You can reach our plumbers 24 hours a day, seven days per week, by calling (703) 525-7973.

Troubleshooting a Noisy Tap

A noisy tap can be a frustrating problem to deal with. Fortunately, the cause is not usually serious and may only require a simple adjustment by your plumber to fix.

Watch this video to learn what your plumber will look for if you have a noisy tap. Noise in the tap usually suggests that there is a vibration somewhere in your water supply line. Tightening a loose valve may be all that is required. Your plumber may also look for an issue with a washer.

From annoyingly noisy taps to toilets that won’t flush, All Plumbing, Inc. is here to help you make the repairs you need quickly and affordably. Call a plumber in Arlington, VA today by dialing (703) 525-7973.

FAQs About Your Garbage Disposal

Most homeowners find their garbage disposals to be one of the most useful pieces of equipment in their homes, but many don’t think about maintaining them until a problem occurs. Often, homeowners find themselves in need of emergency plumbing services when their garbage disposals stop working at the worst times, such as during a holiday meal. Find out more about preventing problems with your garbage disposal with the answers to these common questions.

Is it really necessary to run water when using my disposal?

Any time you turn on your garbage disposal, you should be running water down the drain. Water helps to push the food waste down the drain after your garbage disposal grinds it. Run cold water, so that any fat in your food doesn’t liquefy in the drain. When this occurs, it will solidify further down the drain and create a blockage. Only use hot water on your garbage disposal if you are cleaning it with a non-food item, such as vinegar or citric acid. If you use citrus peels to clean the disposal, you should use cold water.

What can I put down my garbage disposal?

There are enormous misconceptions about what goes down a garbage disposal, and these misconceptions lead to many calls to plumbers. Never put coffee grounds, eggshells, or stringy fruits and vegetables in your disposal. You should also avoid putting down anything that expands in water, such as rice, pasta, and beans. Cooking oil and grease should not go down any drain, including your garbage disposal.

What should I do if my garbage disposal smells?

If there is an odor coming from your garbage disposal, there is likely to be food that hasn’t completely gone down the drain. Turn the cold water and your disposal on and let it run to clear the drain.

When garbage disposal problems strike, All Plumbing, Inc. is here to help around the clock. From emergency plumbing services to basic maintenance, our residential plumbers in Arlington, VA, can do it all. Make an appointment for plumbing services by calling (703) 525-7973.

When to Call for Emergency Plumbing Services

When a plumbing problem happens, how do you know whether to schedule a regular appointment or to call for emergency plumbing services? If you think you could be experiencing a plumbing emergency, start by turning off the water supply to minimize any damage as much as possible. Here are some of the plumbing problems you could experience that will require emergency services.

Burst Pipe

A burst pipe is a clear indicator that you need plumbing repairs as soon as possible. If you don’t get immediate service for your burst pipe, you could allow significant water damage to occur in your home, leading to costly repairs and replacement. When possible, stop the flow of water by turning off the main water supply, and call a plumber right away. As your plumber makes repairs, clear as much of the flooded water as possible, since it will continue to do damage until it is removed.

Frozen Pipes

Sometimes, you don’t know your pipes are frozen until they burst. However, in some cases, you will discover you have frozen pipes when you turn on a tap and water doesn’t flow out. If you suspect your pipes are frozen, don’t attempt to warm them on your own. You could inadvertently cause them to burst. Instead, call your plumber as soon as possible, who can safely thaw your pipes and determine if adding insulation could help you avoid having the same issue in the future.

Overflowing Toilet

If your toilet overflows, don’t assume that plunging it will solve the issue. Get a plumber to find exactly what is causing the issue and make the appropriate repairs, or you may have a repeated incidence with the next flush. An overflowing toilet is unsanitary and could expose you and your family to dangerous bacteria, so allow a professional to handle the job.

When plumbing emergencies strike, All Plumbing, Inc. is ready to provide fast and reliable repairs 24 hours per day, seven days per week. Don’t take a risk with your plumbing. Get emergency plumbing services in Arlington, VA by calling (703) 525-7973.
