Stop Flushing Money Down the Drain!

Zeek Plumbing can solve your plumbing problems with their expert service and quality repairs to save you money.
Stop wasting money due to your plumbing

When it comes to plumbing, there are many ways that you can save money and avoid the feeling of flushing money down the drain. If you follow some simple tips, such as, reducing your daily water use, ensuring pipes and taps are working properly, you will conserve water and therefore reduce your monthly bills.

7 Plumbing Tips That Save…

  1. Repair Leaky Faucets – A dripping tap can waste up to 15 gallons of water a day. By repairing or replacing a leaking fixture, you will stop wasting water and save money in the long run.
  2. Go With Low-Flow Showerheads – By installing a low-flow showerhead you can reduce your water consumption significantly. These showerheads use far less water. A conventional showerhead can waste up to 42 gallons of water in one 10 minute shower.
  3. Reveal and Repair Hidden Leaks – To determine if your home has any leaks, check your water meter before and after a length of time in which no water was used. If the meter has changed, then there may be a leak hidden somewhere in the home.
  4. Don’t Neglect Your Drains – It is a good idea to use strainers in the bathroom sink and shower drains to keep hair and soap out of the pipes. If you keep your drains working properly, you will avoid an annoying clog. If a drain does become clogged or is draining sluggishly, do not use harsh chemical drain cleaners. This will only damage your pipes and harm the environment. Call Zeek Plumbing and we will snake the drain safely and effectively.
  5. Check Your Toilets for Leaks and Noises – Toilets account for 30 percent of daily home usage so it is very important to ensure that your toilets are leak-free. To test a toilet for leaks, drop some food coloring into the tank. If the color seeps into the bowl after 10 or 25 minutes, the toilet has a leak.
  6. Use Discretion With the Garbage Disposal and Other Drains – Never pour hot grease down the garbage disposal or any drain. Grease can lead to a blockage, as it will solidify and, over time, may cause a clog inside the pipes.
  7. Don’t Ever Flush These Items Down the Toilet – Dental floss, hair and wipes are three items that should never go down the drain . These things, in particular, can wreak havoc with your plumbing system. Floss and hair can bond with other waste and form large clumps that block pipes. Wipes may claim to be flushable, but many times lead to clogs and backed up toilets.
At Zeek Plumbing, we provide plumbing services for both residential and commercial customers across Northern NJ. Keeping your plumbing properly maintained can save money.


In order to save money on plumbing services, it is wise to consider the following…

Fix some small repairs while they are still small. Minor problems, if not fixed, eventually may become major problems.

Know how to shut off your home’s water. Locate your shut off valve and turn it clockwise in order to prevent a costly plumbing disaster. The difference between $100 and $1,000 can be knowing how to shut off your water.

By following the tips above, you will keep your home in great repair and keep your money in your pocket! $$$ Contact Zeek Plumbing today, 866-635-0200, should you have any questions or need plumbing service.

5-STAR GOOGLE REVIEWS FROM OUR CUSTOMERS

I called Zeek Plumbing on a recommendation from my old plumber, who had moved away, after my hot water heater died. They were able to come out and get me set up with a new one in relatively short order. I'm definitely saving their number for any future plumbing issues I may have.

Zeek is the best! Steve in the office is top notch and a pleasure to deal with. Tim showed up on time and completed the repair with no issues. Highly recommend Zeek Plumbing.

They came to my house for a routine service call for a few various things that needed to be looked at. I'm very satisfied with the process. They walked me through potential issues they saw, walked me through what they'd do, and gave me advice on how to handle some of the smaller things in the future. I will definitely use them again in the future.

Yet another great experience with Zeek Plumbing. We've used Zeek to install a new hot water heater and most recently they came out to fix a drainage and diverter issue with our bathtub. They also repaired a sink installation and tightened up a loose toilet. Zeek Plumbing has been our go to plumber for over 5 years.

I called on a Sunday and Steve got right back to me. He sent out a tech on the following Tuesday to reseat two toilets. I was able to wait no emergency and I saved money not having the tech do the job on the weekend. The job was done neatly and everything was immaculate when I got home. These guys are professional and trustworthy!! ZEEK PLUMBING is the way to go!!

Timmy and RJ were excellent. The staff ant Zeek plumbing is fast, courteous, and provide their services at a tremendous value. I would highly recommend them for your plumbing needs.

Zeek did the gas line installation for our new natural gas grill. Everything was done professionally and every team member we engaged with were very friendly. Even when there was a slight mishap during inspection, Zeek responded promptly and handled everything great. We now have a very good looking gas line hookup on the deck and the first steaks and burgers are already done!

We use then commercially and industrially. They've never let us down. Far better and more caring plumbers than most out there. They've done residential repairs for friends of mine on jobs that others haven't been able to correct. In one shot, they diagnosed and corrected the problems without a callback. Like tattoos, good work ain't cheap and cheap work ain't good. Spend the money on them and get it done right, the first time

Just wanted to give a shout out to Zeek Plumbing! Our hot water heater went Monday afternoon and they were at our house by 8am Tuesday to fix it. Ryan was super easy and nice to work with and made sure that all of my questions were answered and I understood the next steps.The technicians that came to install the water heater were great! They were neat, friendly, quick and efficient. I would highly recommend Zeek Plumbing!

We had a leak in our baseboard heat. Called Zeek at 8 am with a non-emergency and the team was at our house by 1 pm. Rich and Oliver were great, knowledgeable, and worked quickly and clean. I knew enough to DIY the fix, but didn't want to risk it and I will say it isn't often that a professional puts in as much care as the homeowner, but they very much did - even taking the time to answer my questions around the specific tools they used. I will absolutely make Zeek my first call for the next plumbing fix.

Zeek Plumbing is the best! I called and they said someone would arrive within the hour and someone actually arrived within the hour. We had a dripping pipe in the basement and the issue was resolved quickly and efficiently. I very highly recommend Zeek Plumbing!!
