Our Services

Watkins Filtration has services for both residential and commercial. If its a custom service request please feel free to call our office.

Installation, Upgrades & Repair

Installation and upgrades are our specialties at Watkins. Our skilled professionals will efficiently install your new equipment and configure it to work flawlessly with your existing water and sewer systems.


System Maintenance

Just like regular lawn care or pest control, having a water treatment maintenance plan in place will help keep your costs down over the long term. Professional drain cleaning, restroom disinfection and odor control services, and auto-injection systems will maintain the overall health of your commercial plumbing.


Emergency

It's an unfortunate fact of business life that emergencies can occur - and water emergencies, especially those that put you out of order-are among the worst. When your company bathrooms are out of commission, your business is stalled. Even if you have other washrooms on the property, potential damage from toilet flooding, a huge water bill, health department issues and unpleasant odors are a detriment to your business.


Diagnosis and Chekups

If you think your commercial plumbing system has a plumbing issue, the place to start is with a diagnostic visit from Watkins Filtration. A camera inspection can pinpoint the source of the issue with minimal interruption to your business or customers.


Commercial Plumbing

When a commercial plumbing problem interrupts your business, or a clog or leak is damaging your property, you need the problem diagnosed and fixed-fast. If a drainage problem has your business temporarily closed down, slowed down, or is negatively impacting customer service and worker productivity, call on Watkins.

Other Issues

Many problems don't happen during business hours. Watkins has quick answers here but our phones are open 24 hours a day.

The temperature of my hot water seems to be higher

If you have an older model, you can set the thermostat at medium. Gas models usually have a dial on the front of the gas valve. Electric models have thermostats (there may be two) that are concealed behind the two panels on the side of the tank.


Is there any maintenance for a water heater

Yes, you should test the pressure relief valve regularly and replace it if it fails to operate. At least once a year you should flush out the sediments. As long as a tank has a functioning anode, it should not rust. Therefore you should have the anode checked.


White substance around my shower head and faucet

The unsightly buildup is mineral deposits. To remove these deposits from the showerhead, take a plastic bag and pour a cup of vinegar in it. Place the bag over the showerhead and use a twist tie to hold it in place overnight. In the morning, remove the bag and use an old toothbrush to gently scrub off the deposits. You might be able to remove the aerators from the faucets and allow them to soak in the vinegar overnight.


Foul odor coming from my garbage disposal

This is a common plumbing troubleshooting question. Foul odors occur from a buildup of food debris within the disposal. To eliminate odors, place ice cubes and lemon peels or orange peels in the disposal, and run for 30 seconds. Next, squirt a little liquid dish detergent into the disposer while it is still running. Finally, run cold water for about 30 seconds to rinse all the debris away.


Kitchen drains. are partially clogged

First, try using a plunger. Second, you can remove the trap and remove any debris. Third, if the clog is beyond the trap, there are drain augers that extend from about 15 feet to about 50 feet.
