Even though spring is around the corner, we continue to get hit with very cold fronts that require more than yourself to put on a coat. You also need to protect your pipes, otherwise, they could freeze and burst, which can result in an unfortunate situation.
Have questions? Call us at 214-328-7371 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We were recently remising about our holiday party and realized we hadn't shared these moments with you, so here we are, sharing them. We hope you enjoy seeing some familiar faces. Many who have been to your home and have helped repair a plumbing issue, others who you haven't met in person, but you may have spoken to over the phone.
Everyone in these photos plays an important role in what makes Metro Flow Plumbing a company that has been in business for over 25 years, as well as a company where everyone feels like family.
We also took this time to celebrate the big boss' birthday. The big 60. We got him some great presents he'll be needing soon (joke), as well as a cake and cupcakes that couldn't have been more appropriate.
We hope you leave us a note. We would love to hear from you!
National Bath Safety Month is here, and Metro-Flow Plumbing is ready to share some helpful tips you can implement to help make your bathroom a safer place.
"Every year about 235,000 people over age 15 visit emergency rooms because of injuries suffered in the bathroom, and almost 14 percent are hospitalized."
One of the biggest safety risks is the risk of falling. It turns out the bathroom is the most dangerous room in your house. Here are a few simple, inexpensive ideas that will help you enjoy your bathroom a little more:
"The bathroom is the most dangerous room in your house. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, about 370 people of all ages have shower- or tub-related accidents every day.
AARP has put together a helpful bathroom checklist that could come in handy. You may review the list, here.
If you have questions on how to make your bathroom safer, maybe by installing a spa-style tub or a new toilet, give us a call at 214-328-7371 or contact us, here.
It's that time of year again!
If you're like us, you have been counting down the minutes until the busiest month of the year... December. The month when family from oversees, out of state, and local, gathers to eat, laugh, and sing - and let's be honest, the singing part is our favorite; because of this, we have put together a list of our favorite holiday music.
You'll be finding us by the fireplace singing along to some of these.
Here are a few of our favorite holiday music:

Every year we gather around the table, at work and at home, and look around. We see familiar faces and at times new ones that join us during this very special time of year. This year, just like we do every year, we will gather at home, hold on to eachother's hands around the table, and give thanks for our family, friends, grandchildren, pets, work, and you.
Metro-Flow Plumbing wouldn't be around without the consistent selfless dedication of those who make up the Metro-Flow Plumbing family; our certified plumbing technicians, office staff, master plumber, and our clients. Clients we've had the privilege to work for, for over 25 years. Clients we have come to call our friends - and many times, family.
Thanksgiving is also one of our busiest time of year. With family and friends coming from all over the states - and world - we cook more and tend to produce more grease in the kitchen. This year, when cooking, try to store the grease in a plastic container and freeze it before disposing of it in the garbage. This will not only help keep your pipes clean, but it will make things less messy. Don't pour it down your drains as this will clog them - and though we are available 24/7 to assist you with a plumbing emergency, we are certain you don't want to need us during your Thanksgiving holiday. We hope this plumbing tip will help make your Thanksgiving weekend even more memorable and joyful.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones,
The Metro-Flow Plumbing Family
This Thursday, we'd like to throw it back all the way to January of this year when Daryl Miller was interviewed by the CW33. They talked about cold temperatures freezing the pipes in the DFW metroplex and shared some easy tips to prevent this from happening. Check out his interview and let us know what you think - call us whenever you need a plumber, any time, any day.
Read the full article, here:
DALLAS - Thanks to this cold weather, hundreds of folks in the DFW are starting the new year with flooded kitchens and damaged floors. "Water everywhere," said one man who had a burst pipe. "We went through every towel we had." But, where there's a crisis, there's a plumber! These guys have been moving around all week to make sure the winter weather doesn't ruin your stuff with bursting pipes. "It was, I think below 20 degrees for several days in a row," said Daryl Miller from Metro-Flow Plumbing. "When that happens, any of your piping on the exterior wall's going to sinks or faucets or water heaters, they will freeze."
Here's the thing, if you live in a house that's a little older, you really need to make sure you're letting those faucets drip on freezing-cold nights. But even if you're in a new spot, it's best to be prepared. Opening up cabinets in your house also gets some heat circulating to warm things up, but you may catch a break soon, looks like things are about to warm right back up.
We had a great time at Lone Star Park at Grand Prairie during our company's summer event. As you may imagine it was very hot, but thankfully we had air conditioning to keep us going. Some of us had been before and some hadn't. It gave us the opportunity to learn something new and share on our wins - and sometimes, our losses. Speaking of losses, even when they happened, we laughed, ate, and enjoyed ourselves.
Check out the pictures from the event and leave us a comment. We love to hear from you.
You know the noise. That never ending hissing noise coming from your toilet. It's a noise that once heard, it can not be unheard. It could be two in the morning or four in the afternoon. The house could finally be quite and you could be getting ready to take an afternoon nap or finally fall asleep after a long day at the office. That constant noise coming from your toilet could mean that the water tank is never getting filled, it's wasting a lot of water, and it could skyrocket your water bill.
Though this could be an "easy fix you can handle yourself", our experience would advice you to call a plumbing professional. Many times what seems to be an "easy fix" could turn into a bigger headache that could have been prevented if fixed right by a certified and insured plumber the first time around. If things were to get complicated or if you were to find yourself not having the time to fix the problem, you can always give us a call at 214-328-7371. In the meantime, here are a few things you can do at home to get you started:
Test the Flapper
One cause of a toilet running is a flapper that doesn’t seal. If water from the tank seeps around the flapper and into the bowl, the flapper is probably shot. Shut off the water supply valve under the toilet (or the main water supply if the valve is leaking). Flush the toilet to drain out most of the water, and call your plumbing professional. This should make the hissing noice stop while the plumbing professional is able to arrive and help you fix the problem.
Another thing the plumbing technician may check for is the valve as it could sometimes have a leak and be the source of the problem.
If you have questions, give us a call at 214-328-7371. One of our certified plumbing professionals will be ready to assist you.
