How to Diagnose Well Pump Problems

How to Diagnose Well Pump Problems

It’s 6:08 am, and you’ve hit “snooze” one too many times. With a deep sigh, you stumble to the bathroom, psyching yourself up for the long day ahead. Still half-asleep, you spin the shower handle. Nothing happens. Or perhaps something happens, but it’s not anything remotely resembling a shower. “What…

Why the Thaw Might Not End Your Plumbing Problems

The days are getting longer, and the temperatures are slowly warming—and although winter isn’t officially over for a few weeks, we’re already looking forward to more sunshine and less “blah.” We’re guessing you feel the same way—especially if you’re one of the unlucky Upper Valley plumbing customers who got to…

10 Expert Ways to Take Care of Pipes and Drains

Of all our modern conveniences, indoor plumbing might be the one we most take for granted. Although we use our sinks and sewer system multiple times a day, they simply don’t require a ton of attention. And because plumbing lasts for decades, it’s rarely top of mind. When it is,…

How to Avoid Frozen Pipes This Winter

Ten thousand dollars. That’s the average insurance claim related to “water damage and freezing,” according to the Insurance Information Institute. Each year, one in 50 homeowners will file such a claim—and we’re guessing that you, like all Upper Valley plumbing customers, would rather not be that “lucky” one. In fact,…

How to Reset an Electric Water Heater in Two Easy Steps

Picture this. It’s a subzero Monday morning. You’ve hit the snooze button six times—and if it weren’t for your spouse threatening to suffocate you in your sleep, you would’ve hit it a seventh time. Instead, you sigh deeply, toss back the covers, and scurry to the bathroom. You turn on…
The Worst Things to Put Down Your Drain (based on actual experience)

The Worst Things to Put Down Your Drain (based on actual experience)

OK, friends of Jerm’s Plumbing and Heating, today’s post on the worst things to put down your drain is admittedly a bit self-serving. Imagine this: It’s Thanksgiving day (it’s creeping up on us, you know), and you’re just sitting down for a lovely meal with your family. The turkey’s perfectly…
Why Water Isn’t Always Good For You

Why Water Isn’t Always Good For You

Most of us were taught that we should drink at least eight, eight-ounce glasses of water every day. That’s basically two liters of the stuff. But what if water isn’t always good for you? If we could insert a record scratch sound here, we totally would—because that’s probably what just…

Jeremy, Shawn, Chris, Hunter, and Emily all teamed up to help me out with an old-house plumbing nightmare that suddenly erupted (literally). They are organized, awesome at communications, sharp as *tacks*, supertidy, and so nice to work with -- and they are GREAT at discussing options. There is nothing like working with knowledgeable, licensed, insured plumbers -- they know their stuff! I have more work to do in my old house, and I will 110% be asking them to help.

The gentlemen showed up when they were scheduled. They were polite and engaging. Super knowledgeable and fixed issues with both a shower faucet in our guest room and a rain shower issue in our master bath. Would definitely call them again for any plumbing concerns. They will not disappoint.

These guys are great! They are quick to reply, show up when they say they will, and are extremely professional. Upon finishing the work, they leave no trace of being there, other than the fantastic work. I wouldn't think of using anyone else for my plumbing needs, as they are the most reliable company I've hired.

Very personable and professional!! Jerms replaced old toilets, installed two new shower heads, a new kitchen faucet and got my bathroom vanity sink draining again. Work was done quickly and neatly. Jerms is now on speed dial!! Best value and service around.
