We also know they need special care. They need a plumber with experience. Experience is crucial when replacement plumbing parts are obsolete or hard to locate.

Plumbing problems in older homes

Does flushing a toilet send a blast of hot water into the shower?

Is your water pressure not what it should be?

Do you have slow draining tubs, sinks and showers?

The plumbing in many older homes isn’t designed to meet the water demands of today’s families. We can help! Our plumbers are experts in repairing and upgrading the plumbing in Willimantic CT homes just like yours. We have the tools and training to tackle any job.

Emergency well system repair

Many of the historic homes in the area were built before indoor plumbing. This means that they had to 'fake' some of the installations. It was also a long time before any sort of building codes were developed. Additionally, there were different standards for materials.

This means that today, many plumbers find themselves in dirt cellars, tight crawlspaces or under porches. One of the most common plumbing calls we receive for historic homes is about lack of water pressure. Recently, we dispatched a Rapid Service plumber to a home built in 1832. The water pressure in the home was very poor and at times, there was no water at all. We had to check the well tank and this is how we got to it:


The problem? This well tank was completely water logged. We had to disconnect it, drag it out of the dug out section, through the crawlspace and out of the home before we could install a new tank. This kind of situation calls for an expert!

    Bruce & Georgia Stauffer

    I had Rapid Service come to my home because there was a saddle valve under my kitchen sink that was about to make a huge mess. I wasn't able to use my filtered water faucet until the repair was made. The technician fixed it AND had a great attitude while he worked. That is a rare thing lately...
