What goods or services do you provide? PSI Plumbing offers a full range of services and repairs to both residential and commercial customers. We believe that being proactive and not reactive is looking out for customers’ best interest. This philosophy has led us to expand our company to include jetting as well as grease, sugar and drain management systems for restaurants, bars and other business.
What’s new or exciting at your place? The most exciting new service in plumbing is power jetting. We have a specialized truck that can deliver up to 4,000 psi of pressure to completely remove drain line corrosion and blockage, preventing costly repairs and damage. The service can be done in both residential and commercial settings. It blows away the old way of simply snaking a drain to open a hole in a clog.
