Kudos to Cameron!

October 30th 2020

Fantastic overall service! Cameron was the best plumber we’ve ever had work in our home. He identified and explained the problem, then repaired the leak we have been battling for several months. He was very knowledgeable, explained everything thoroughly, ensured I understood, was extremely professional and was very careful in our home.

He deserves an A+ for his knowledge, great communication skills, terrific work ethic and professionalism.

Keep your home clean and your family safe! If your “Temperature/Pressure safety relief valve” is leaking, Call (503) 719-4015 and speak with the experts at Sutherland Plumbing today!

Is your Water Heater’s “Temperature/Pressure safety relief valve” dripping or leaking?

If so, it’s doing it’s job and trying to tell you, no it’s screaming at you:

“Houston, we have a problem!”

Most often the drain pipe and valve connected to the water heater runs right off the top or side of the heater and is open-ended just above floor level.

Don’t let anybody tell you that simply changing the safety valve will solve the problem. There’s very likely a larger core issue at hand causing the above mentioned symptom. Like excessive water pressure and/or trapped thermal expansion. Thermal expansion refers to a basic law of physics: anything that increases in temperature increases in size. The water inside your plumbing system is no exception. Trapped thermal expansion is a problem. The hot water has nowhere to expand to, so it takes the path of least resistance – you guessed it…leaking out of your safety valve often right onto the floor 😦

Fortunately there are specific remedies that work great to solve the problem and the plumbers at Sutherland Plumbing, LLC are experts at it!

The Best plumbers get the best reviews!

“Exactly as advertised. If you’re wondering how a business can possibly have so many consistently high ratings and great reviews, it’s no hype with these guys – they are the real deal! I’m a ten year-plus veteran of the service industry, and Ti & Courtney provided some of the best end-to-end customer service I’ve ever seen or received. Responsive, communicative, honest, friendly, professional, on time and on budget.

We’d initially scheduled a water heater replacement for our newly purchased home. Ti explained all of our options clearly, no pushy up-sell, just the facts. If you have any second thoughts about their prices, know you will absolutely get what you pay for: thorough knowledge, high-quality parts and expert workmanship. Considering the amount of damage a two dollar plumbing part can cause your home, is that really where you want to go cheap?

Late in the game I found a leaky washing machine tap and they were able to squeeze-in replacing that on the same service call. While the original estimate called for cutting drywall to replace the entire valve box, Ti found he was able to re-use the existing box, saving us over 300 dollars! They could have easily changed the box anyway and charged us accordingly and we’d have been none the wiser. That kind honesty is refreshing and can win you a customer for life. We highly recommend Sutherland Plumbing.”
