Water Supply & Distribution Piping

Along with the drain waste and vent system, the water distribution system in your home is more important and complex than it first appears. Properly sized and installed systems deliver clean pure water and remove the water borne waste from your home to a point of disposal with no moving parts. They protect your family from contaminants and the methane gas (sewer smell) that is a byproduct of bacterial action within the system. They keep your family safe from the diseases that plague most undeveloped nations (cholera, typhoid, polio, meningitis, and hepatitis) to name a few of the more common water borne diseases that plague some undeveloped countries.

Improperly sized water distribution piping will cause pressure fluxuations at the faucets and fixtures. In some situations this will not be noticed, however if you have been in the shower when someone flushes the toilet or starts the clothes washer and the shower turns to a dribble of water your water piping was probably not sized correctly. Call Bow Plumbing & Heating to have your problems solved.

Bow Plumbing & Heating employs plumbers that have completed an apprenticeship of four years of class room education and four years of field training to qualify to take the Journeyman’s plumbing test and another six months of field training to qualify to take the Master plumbers test. All of the Plumbers that have passed the tests are also required to attend yearly continuing education classes to renew their license. This apprentice is under the continual direct supervision of a licensed Master plumber and the company owner Robert W. Ives. All of this is to insure the safety and comfort of our customers. The Bow Plumbing & Heating Team has provided unexcelled service to our customers since 1960. We have both the experience and knowledge to keep your family comfortable and safe.

Bow Plumbing features Wirsbo/Uponor aqua-pex pipe for all of our new installations. Our employees are all Wirsbo certified installers allowing us to offer a 25 year warrantee on all of the Wirsbo water distribution products that we install.

We are also certified to install Flowgard Gold and Corizan for larger distribution systems.

Should your existing copper or brass water piping spring a leak, we would be pleased to repair your single leak or if your current system is experiencing systemic failure we can replace your entire system with one of our new products. Please see the links to Wirsbo/Uponor, Flowgard or Corizan on our products page.

We also feature Noritz on demand type water heaters. Noritz water heaters have larger capacity and better efficiency rating than most other on demand heaters currently available.

New technology is a great thing but be very careful when selecting an on demand heater. In this geographic region the ambient water temperature is approximately 45 degrees and requires a boost in temperature of at least 85 degrees to provide 130 degree water at the faucets. When you check the graphs of other manufacturer’s pay particular attention to the gpm (gallons per minute) rate as it relates to the temperature rise of 85 degrees that is required.
See the Noritz link on our residential hot water products page

We feature the Bock line of oil fired heaters with Beckett AFG oil burners,Bock has a winning combination. See link on our products page.

We have selected Buderus Ssolar Hot water heating systems to add to our line of products. With the cost of energy rising and the Federal and Local tax incentives and rebates that are available this is an affordable option in most locations. See link on our products page.
See the Buderus link under heating & cooling on our products page

We install all of our water heaters with pressure/temperature safety valves, di-electric unions, new full port ball valves and thermostatic safety mixing valves to protect against scalding. Thermal expansion tanks are installed where required by system piping, local codes or manufacturer’s installation instructions.
