Laundry Room

To guarantee a code-compliant and proper hookup of your laundry room appliances, a plumbing professional is your best bet. My Favorite Plumber’s experienced and professional team will make sure that your new appliances are installed correctly so you avoid the hassles associated with improperly connected appliances. We can also fix any problems your currently installed appliances may be experiencing.

Here are some of the services we offer to help with your laundry room:

Install laundry pump

Laundry pumps, or drain pumps, are necessary when you need to drain waste water against gravity from laundry tray sinks, utility sinks or washing machines. Drain pumps are also useful for bar sinks, showers and any other “grey water” basement drain application. 

We can install any major brand including Liberty, Flotec, Zoeller, Wayne and Little Giant

Tip: Prevent Drain Pump Backwash

Drain pumps are great for transporting water from a utility or bar sink as much as 14 feet up to an existing home drain line. One challenge is that any water pushed up will flow back down if it has not yet reached the drain line, setting off the pump again. To prevent this, install a check valve, which lets water flow in only one direction.

Install laundry tub faucet

My Favorite Plumber can repair any utility faucet assembly, as well as drains, hoses and valves. We can also replace old, low, difficult-to-operate faucets with extended, gooseneck, swing-nozzle or pull-out faucets, which open up the tub to a wider range of uses.

Faucets: Repair or Replace?

Homeowners often wonder whether it’s better to repair or replace a malfunctioning faucet. The best answer is: it depends.

Washers and seals can be replaced cheaply and many faucet components are repairable. In some cases, however, special ordering a broken part can be more expensive than simply replacing the entire faucet.

Install laundry tub

A laundry tub or utility sink is a very handy addition to any laundry area. Laundry tubs tied into washing machine sewer and drain lines allow for convenient drainage, pre-wash and other utility needs such as cleaning up paint supplies.

Sink Tip: Drain gurgling

If you find that a drain in your home is gurgling, it is typically a blockage of air in the drain, usually caused by a clog of some sort. Removing the clog should fix the problem.

Replace washing machine hose

Is your washing machine hose cracked, spraying or dripping at the connector? Time to call My Favorite Plumber! Burst rubber hoses are one of the most common causes of water damage in homes. We can replace and repair aging washing machine hoses in a jiffy.

Tip: Don't Wait to Replace Rubber Hoses

Washing machine hoses suffer a lot of wear and tear as water flow is continuously started and stopped during the wash cycle. Hoses should be replaced every few years to prevent a catastrophic failure. One suggestion is to replace them every leap year.

Washing machine valves

We can replace or repair washing machine shut-off values, washer connection heads and outlet box assemblies, which can be a challenge to reach and remove. If you see any evidence of a leak around your washing machine, call My Favorite Plumber right away.

Tip: Install an Automatic Shut-Off Value

A sure way to prevent water damage from leaks or burst hoses behind the washing machine is to install an automatic shut-off valve. These vales can detect leaks when the machine is in use and shut off the water supply when it is not, preventing hose fatigue from constant water pressure.
