At Ultimate Plumbing & Repair, we believe in giving back to the community, especially during the holidays! Recently, a local Mooresville church reached out to Ultimate Plumbing and asked if we could help one of their parishioners who was experiencing some plumbing issues. Their water heater was faulty, leaving them in the cold, and they couldn’t afford a new one. 

When Joe Hughes, the owner and founder of Ultimate Plumbing & Repair, heard about the family’s plight, he didn’t hesitate to render assistance! Hughes Supply of Huntersville donated a 20-gallon Rheem electric water heater. Meanwhile, Ultimate Plumbing donated labor and parts to get the family back in hot water for the coldest portion of the year.

We asked Joe how he found out about the situation, and he explained, “One of my wife’s friends volunteers for a Christian mission. She was noticing that a lady she knew here in Mooresville had no hot water since last Tuesday.”

Joe explained the type of installation, what type of water heater was installed and told us what he could about the project. He said, “Electric water heaters are the best way to go. [For this project, we installed a] small, 20-gallon, 120-volt water heater, so it is a good quality water heater…Also, the products we installed are the same products we would install in every house. The high-grade [inaudible] packs…brass ball valves, stuff like that.”

Joe was born and grew up in a military household. He explains that upbringing had a definite positive impact on his desire to give back to his community. “When you’re in the military, especially I was a military brat. My dad was in the military, my son’s military, my grandfather was, you know. Everybody knows the military doesn’t pay a lot, so it is a civil-servant type of duty…I started a business and I wanted to be able to give a little back…God has blessed us with our company and, as busy as we are, and I feel obligated to give back a little. It feels good to be able to give back to people who can’t afford services like this, that we can give.”

He was quick to add, “I’d like to have a shout-out to Hughes Supply in Huntersville… Shannon was gracious enough to donate this 20-gallon Rheem water heater.”

Question: I think I need a plumber, but I’m not sure if it’s an emergency. How can I tell for sure?

Answer: Any time you see signs such as:
  1. Water infiltration, leakage or encroachment onto floors or walls
  2. Slow or no draining of tubs, toilets, and showers
  3. A strong sewage smell or raw sewage coming from your toilet
  4. A water heater which doesn’t deliver hot water, or in the case of gas water heaters, won’t stay lit

It’s a safe bet you have a plumbing emergency in the making. Water damage can create a good growing environment for harmful molds, making your house unhealthy and your family sick. Raw sewage backing into your home is a wonderland of dangerous germs, especially for very young and very elderly people. 

If you’re not sure if you actually have an emergency, it’s always best to err on the side of caution. Many plumbing issues can be resolved quickly and relatively cheaply if they’re caught early. Call Ultimate Plumbing & Repair, Inc. at the first sign of a problem so you don’t have to worry about what comes next!
