HIRING A MCKINNEY PLUMBER VS. COMPANY
There are many differences between hiring an established company like Legacy, vs. a plumber in McKinney who may operate on his own or with an apprentice. While several plumbers on our team live in the city limits of McKinney, TX, the similarities may end there.
We have master plumbers on our team and licensed technicians that are well-versed in code and permit requirements in McKinney, TX. Legacy has experience handling complex problems, from sewer line breaks to slab leaks to water heater installation. Trust in Legacy for major pipe repairs to installation and do the job right the first time!
As a homeowner, you would rather never have a problem with a drain or pipe, which is completely understandable. What you might not realize is that Legacy Plumbing can perform an annual inspection, helping you avoid repairs. An annual look is covered under our Gold Legacy Plan, as is priority booking and a 5% discount should we find any fixes that are necessary.
Legacy has even more discounts available to McKinney residents and first-time customers — check out our promotions page for details.
MCKINNEY’S PIPES ARE GROWING
McKinney, TX a thriving city 30 miles north of Dallas, has grown nearly ten-fold as a result of national media coverage about the community’s welcoming atmosphere. This massive growth has led to a real estate boom, as well as upgrades to the city’s existing homes.
Underneath it all are the drains and pipes — gas, water, sewage — that ties it together. Legacy is happy to be a plumber to McKinney’s 200,000-plus residents, sharing our extensive experience in installation and repair.
We look forward to serving McKinney from nearby Frisco and offer a free service call for new customers. Our team and crew are doing more and more jobs in the area, look for our trucks in your neighborhood.
COMMON McKINNEY PLUMBING REPAIRS
With these demographics, 3- to 4-bedroom single-family homes in the mid-$400,000s range are common. These homes are newer, larger and more expensive than houses in Dallas, and typically have a more complex sewer and water system.
Current home buyers are searching for bigger yards and lots, as well as swimming pools. All of the above require more utility pipes and water hookups on the property, all of which may require maintenance.
New construction sounds good in theory — fewer repairs, right? But this isn’t necessarily the case. Some builders try to save money by hiring unqualified workers. This often leads to poor installations of everything from faucets to water heaters.
If you buy a newly constructed home, be on the lookout for these issues:
- Clogged pipes
- Blocked drains
- Faulty water heaters
- Leaky water faucets
- Running toilets
- Slab leak detection
- Garbage disposal
Give Legacy a call if you suspect that your pipes, drains or water heater isn’t working properly — these problems can escalate quickly if you’re not vigilant.
McKINNEY GAS SERVICE
Natural gas issues are rarely at the forefront of our minds — until something is amiss.
If you’ve been experiencing symptoms of gas exposure or are concerned that there may be a leak in your system, Legacy can perform a gas static test to alleviate any worries.
On the emergency end, if you suddenly smell a lot of gas around your home, it’s time to leave and call 911. Then call your gas provider (either Coserv or Atmos) to figure out who is responsible for fixing the leak. Usually you are responsible for any leak that runs from the meter to your home.
Legacy can repair or replace the line for you, taking care of everything from start to finish, from excavation to city permits. We will walk you through the process so you won’t come across any surprises.
McKINNEY WATER SERVICE
Like most cities in the DFW area, McKinney is concerned about water conservation and takes great care to ensure residents are doing their part to maintain the water system into the future.
North Texas Municipal Water District provides the city’s water, and the city then takes daily samples to ensure water quality. The city takes pride in its Superior water rating.
No watering is allowed to take place between the hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Refusing to follow the schedule without a new-landscaping variance can result in fines and eventual water shut-off.)
As an incentive to conserve water, McKinney residents are able to receive as much as a $150 rebate on the purchase of an ET controller and/or rain and freeze sensor. This upgrades any irrigation system built before September 1, 2007. (Legacy does not service irrigation equipment. We recommend contacting a licensed irrigation company.)
Water leaks between the meter and your home are up to you to fix — and you can call on Legacy to do a water/sewer line check and repair. The city does offer a courtesy credit for leaks to customers who qualify, as water leaks are known to pull a number on your pocketbook.
The city is also in the midst of a multiyear effort to replace more than 14,000 copper water service lines with more durable poly pipes. These lines connect the water distribution to your water meters. You’ll receive notice on your door when the city is coming to your area.
