Installation of Pipes & Drains
Your home’s plumbing consists of two main parts: the water supply system and the drainage system. The water supply system in most of today’s homes is straightforward, with small pipes or tubing supplying hot and cold water, under pressure, to appliances and fixtures. The drainage system, however, is a bit more complicated and depends on both gravity and ventilation to work efficiently.

Clearing Slow Sink Drains:
Depending on where your sink is located (kitchen/bathroom/laundry room), sink drains may become clogged due to hair, toothpaste, soap, grime, grease & detergents that build up in the inner walls of the pipes that eventually cause backups. Now there are numerous solutions to clear a drain (i.e. chemical drain cleaners, plungers, handheld augers, etc.), but there are pros and cons to all of them. These sink drains, although a small annoyance can quickly escalate into a big problem. To save money and protect yourself from such damage, our expert technicians can clear and drain the problem quickly and efficiently.

High Pressure Hydro Jetting
Hydro-jet cleaning is a method of cleaning with high pressure streams of water to remove build up and debris in tanks and lines.
This process may best be compared to power washing which has also gained popularity as a means to clean driveways, homes, streets, commercial vehicles and more. Water blasters are essentially pressure washers with extreme pressure from 7,000 PSI to 60,000 PSI. These units are classified generally as delivering ultra-high pressure. This range of pressures are designed for unique applications like pipe cleaning, water jetting, precision cutting, and surface preparation to name a few. Common uses are found in industries like construction, marine, aviation, and manufacturing. They can be built with electric, gas, or diesel engines with cold or hot water options depending on the application requirements. One should use safety equipment to protect the body and feet from accidentally injury

Tankless Hot Water Heaters
The general premise behind a tankless water heater is to only heat water "on demand" as it is needed. This eliminates the need for a storage tank and dramatically increases energy efficiency. Almost every major shortcoming of a conventional water heater is addressed by a tankless system.

Sewer Line Replacement
Pipe relining can be performed through a building's clean-out access and often requires little digging. Pipe relining is used to repair root-damaged pipes, seal cracks and holes, fill in missing pipe and seal joint connections underground, in roof drain pipes, in storm lines and under concrete. The relined pipe is seamless and durable, and all materials used in the relining process are non-hazardous.

Low Water Pressure
Is your shower spray weak when a toilet is flushed? Does it scold or get too hot to stand in? Low/inadequate water pressure and diminished volume is a common occurrence with houses over 30 years old. These rectifiable conditions can be easily remedied by Mako Plumbing. We have increased house and building pressure for dozens of our clients with little repiping having to be done. 30+ year old valves and meter assemblies can be extremely restrictive due to old/out of date fittings and components. Water pressure is now evenly distributed throughout all municipalities and areas within the urban/suburban grids. If you have low or not good enough pressure in any of your household/building plumbing fixtures, we can help and remedy your annoyances. Sometimes all it takes is one of our highly qualified mechanics to spend as little as a ½ hour to restore lost pressure to a shower, faucet or toilet.

Boilers/Heating Systems:
Are your winter fuel bills high? There are literally a hundred or more solutions to this common problem. Mako Plumbing is qualified to help you reduce your heating costs significantly. In some cases 10%-75% from what your used to expending. Think of all the things you can do with an extra hundred – thousand dollars per month.

Backflow Prevention:
By definition a “backflow” is an undesirable reversal of flow of a liquid, gas or solid into the potable water supply. A backflow preventer keeps this from happening. Back pressure can force an undesirable contaminant to enter potable water piping. Sources of back pressure may be pumps in the water distribution system, boilers, heat exchanging equipment, sprinklers and power washing equipment. In these cases there may be an almost constant risk of overcoming the static water pressure in piping. To reduce the risk of contamination, a backflow preventer can be fitted. It is also important when potentially toxic chemicals are used, for instance for commercial/industrial descaling (boilers or when bleaches are used for residential power washing and sprinkler systems.

Frozen Pipes Thawed:
With a combination of extreme cold weather and wind chill, you could be at risk for a frozen or burst pipe. If there is water inside your pipe it can freeze, turn to ice and expand your pipe causing a blockage and possible crack. These results can cause property damage with high repair costs. There are many ways to prevent frozen pipes. Let our licensed and insured technicians help you minimize this risk. Inquire about us winterizing your home as well.

Video Camera Inspections
Video Camera Inspections: Used to visually inspect the interiors of pipe lines. A common application is to determine the condition of small diameter sewer lines and household connection pipes. This camera can also identify minor and major cracks any waste back up intrusions of tree roots, grease blockages, debris and more. Our technicians can accurately identify the cause of your issue and give you the most effective solution.

Our video camera inspections include a fiber optic cable with a high-resolution waterproof color camera. This high-tech camera enables you and our expert technicians to visually see and determine issues on a monitor. Our video cameras also can record the inspection.
 
What Can A Video Camera Inspection Detect:
  • Broken Pipes
  • Cracked Pipes
  • Collapsed Pipes
  • Offset Pipes – Misaligned pipes
  • Corroded Pipes
  • Bellied Pipes – Sagging pipes
  • Blockage – Due from roots, grease or other objects


RPZ Installation and Service
The "RPZ" device, as it is commonly referred to, is a backflow prevention device which is used to prevent "backflow" of foreign liquids and other matter into the potable supply of water which could result in contamination. Backflow can occur when the pressure on our system is less then the pressure on a customer's system.

Backflow Prevention
A backflow prevention assembly is used to protect potable water supplies from contamination or pollution due to backflow.
In water supply systems, water is normally maintained at a significant pressure to enable water to flow from the tap, shower etc. When pressure fails or is reduced, as may happen if a water main bursts, pipes freeze or there is unexpectedly high demand on the water system, then such reduced pressure in the pipe may allow contaminated water from the ground, from storage or from other sources to be drawn up into the system.

Radiant Heat
Radiant heat is comfortable, clean and energy efficient. The benefits of radiant floor heating systems make it an ideal solution for any new construction or remodeling project. If you want to heat your bathroom floors, any tiled area, basement, kitchens or entire home radiant heat is very efficient. Under-floor radiant heat will add luxury, comfort and efficient heating to your home or business.

Outdoor Shower/Cabana/Bath House:
