Neurological Problems

Lead in drinking water can cause serious neurological problems. These include peripheral neuropathy, confusion, dizziness, and slurred speech. Our plumbing services are designed to keep you and your family safe and healthy.

Immune System Disorders

Lead decreases your body’s ability to make antibodies and cells that kill germs. You may get sick more frequently and get sicker when you’re ill. Children who drink contaminated water may be chronically sick. We’re available for urgent plumbing repairs whenever you need us.
