Wooden pipes were used in London and elsewhere during the 16th and 17th centuries. The pipes were hollowed-out logs, which were tapered at the end with a small hole in which the water would pass through.[16] The multiple pipes were then sealed together with hot animal fat. They were often used in Philadelphia,[17] Boston, and Montreal in the 1800s, and built-up wooden tubes were widely used in the USA during the 20th century. These pipes, used in place of corrugated iron or reinforced concrete pipes, were made of sections cut from short lengths of wood. Locking of adjacent rings with hardwood dowel pins produced a flexible structure. About 100,000 feet of these wooden pipes were installed during WW2 in drainage culverts, storm sewers and conduits, under highways and at army camps, naval stations, airfields and ordnance plants.
Some water leaks are visible and their source is obvious. Others are not, and the water travels through walls, ceilings and floors with resulting the visible damage occurring far away from the source. Tracing and detecting the source of water leaks is a job for Houston’s premier plumbing company since 1965, John Moore Services. Our experienced plumbing team can interpret the signs and reveal the cause of the water leak quickly before more damage can be done to your home. A custom diagnosis and repair plan will be developed to fix the leak properly. In addition to our plumbing and repipe services, our Houston plumbers also offer water damage repair services for walls and floors so you can get your home back to normal faster. If you are hearing water trickling in your walls when the taps are off, seeing water spots on your walls, ceilings, or floors, or noticing buckling tiles or flooring, contact John Moore today for our leak detection service. Your home will thank you.
Today Eduardo came to our home to fix the upstairs toilet. I noticed a water stain on my ceiling a couple months ago, and after measuring the distance from the wall, traced it to the toilet upstairs. I called another highly rated company on Yelp before calling Eduardo, and it was extremely difficult to get a pricing estimate from the woman who picked up. When I finally did get an estimate (after answering many of her questions) it ended up being much higher than what Eduardo charges.
After using several different services in the past, Edward has become my trusted plumbing and water heater specialist for both my rental properties and home.  Services he's done for me include: replacing water heater, replacing kitchen and bathroom faucets, snaking roots from pipes, and replacing toilets including fixing very problematic pipes and uneven flooring from previous toilet installation.  I trust his opinion and his work 100%!
Eduardo took my information and made an appointment to come the next day. He also mentioned he would try to fit me in at the end of the day. Since I called so late, I really didn't expect him to accommodate me on the same day. Then at 4:30, Eduardo texted and called me that he could actually come shortly after 5 pm! I am so glad that I can get the problem fixed a day early!
Eduardo is the most helpful and honest plumber I have encountered. I've had many pipe leaks at our place and have found many companies charge ridiculous fees on top of the exorbitant amount for the repair. I recently had a leak and a company came out and left without detecting all the leaks. Not wanting to be taken twice by the same company (Always Plumbing), I called around and Eduardo took the time in his very busy schedule to talk to me and coached me on what needed to be done. Although he was not available to come out due to his schedule, I was equipped with knowledge of what needed to be done. I will be calling him first from now on. Thank you!

Keeping your trash dispoal clean isn't very difficult or time consuming. Fill the sink at least half full of soapy water. Remove the stopper from the drain while simultaneously turning on the disposal. This will fill the entire disposal with soapy water and help to flush out food buildup. It will also clean the blades and flush your pipes with clean water.

Tankless water heaters usually cost more to install than traditional tanks, because many homes need to be retrofitted to accommodate the new system. Tankless electric water heaters retail on average between $150 and $1,200, and tankless natural gas water heaters retail between $200 and $1,300 on average. The lower prices ($150-$250) are generally for point-of-use tankless heaters that can be installed to boost hot water in high-demand areas such as the bathroom or kitchen sink. Tankless water heaters designed to heat whole homes usually start under $300 at the low end and go up to $1,400 or more. Pricing for whole-home varies with the heater’s technology and features. Nationally, standard water heater installation costs average $360-$780, but tankless water heater installation costs may range from $400 to $1,000, depending on the work needed. Some perks of tankless water heaters are that they have nearly double the life expectancy of traditional water heaters and are generally more cost-efficient. Homeowners may be able to save $100 or more per year on their utility bills with an Energy Star approved tankless heater, depending on how much hot water they use.

Plumbing originated during ancient civilizations such as the Greek, Roman, Persian, Indian, and Chinese cities as they developed public baths and needed to provide potable water and wastewater removal, for larger numbers of people.[6] Standardized earthen plumbing pipes with broad flanges making use of asphalt for preventing leakages appeared in the urban settlements of the Indus Valley Civilization by 2700 BC.[7] The Romans used lead pipe inscriptions to prevent water theft. The word "plumber" dates from the Roman Empire.[8] The Latin for lead is plumbum. Roman roofs used lead in conduits and drain pipes[9] and some were also covered with lead. Lead was also used for piping and for making baths.[10]
