Plumbing, Drian & Sewer Service

(As of 2014 a new California law(SB 407) requires owners of any single family home that is at least 20 years old and is adding square footage or are making permanant improvements to their home MUST ALSO install brand new water-conserving plumbing fixtures throughout the entire house.)

Owning a home or residence is a job when it comes to ensuring that it is aging well? Same goes for an aging industrial or commercial building. Extra expenses for repair instead of maintinence hurts your bottom line.

This page was created to help you learn and understand what you can do to keep your plumbing, heating, air conditiong or HVAc running smooth. Manhattan Beach, CA was Incorporated in 1912. Bob & Marc Plumbing has served many homes and businesses since 1956.

We know the sewer system and types of construction that was completed and is being performed today.

Over the years the current aging plumbing framework has endured earthquakes and salt water corrosion and many beach homes are going through what many surrounding cities are, remodeling.

Along with the new law stated above, remodeling can be daunting and many just want it to be completed without considering the plumbing system they currently have. We recommend that, if you are a home or building owner, think of the long term cost or saving you gain by relaceing your sewer lateral, water heater(s), faucets, showers, toilets and all the plumbing that can cost you a lot more than the new marble flooring in Manhattan Beach water fees and taxes.

Common questions about your Plumbing

Air Conditioning
Manhattan Beach

What does a BTU really mean?
A ton of cooling is now defined as delivering 12,000 BTU/hour of cooling. BTU is short for British Thermal Unit (and is a unit that the British do not use) The BTU is a unit of heating - or in this case, cooling - energy. It’s more important, however, to keep in perspective that a window air conditioner is usually less than one ton. A small home central air conditioner would be about two tons and a large one about five tons.

Water Heaters
Manhattan Beach

How can I keep my what heater running longer? Answer:
One way is to turn the power off on the unit. Connect a hose to water heater. Drain the water out. Open and close the inlet valve a ferw time to let that stuff settled inside come out.

Manhattan Beach

How does gas destroy pipes? Answer:
Gas does not have any effects on the gas line piping. The surrounding elements and the age of the pipe does. It is best to have a profesional plumber do a visual check to make sure all is well. Underground gas pipes, if installed properly, should be good for a very long time after installation. That being saids, if you own an older model home or industrial building, have them checked closely and often for corrosion or damage.

Manhattan Beach

My dishwasher doesn't drain. Answer:
Some water should be left behind after each wash. This is a normal thing. But, if you have an unreasionable amount of water left in the unit after a wash, check the drain / over flow oulet that is usualally next to your kitchen faucet. It might be clogged.

Manhattan Beach

I cannot get hot water to come out of the faucet Answer:
Wether it's a sink or shower faucet, it's probobly something that is happening inside the faucet that is worn. Most newer faucets can be repaired by replacing the cartridge inside. Even though you can go online and try to order the correct parts, it's confusuing to most do it yourselfers. Have your plumber fix it for you as this is typically a very inexpesive service call.

Clean Outs
Manhattan Beach

Q. Where are my cleanouts located? Answer:
They can be located inside the house but are more often on the exterior of the house. You will need to carefully look at all sides to the house to find the sewer clean out because there could be more than one and they can be obscured by landscaping.
