    I contacted BDS for an estimate on changing out stems and faucets on my bathtub. Greg came out and did a thorough job - he even went down to the water heater to make sure my water pressure was normal in case that was causing any issues. Greg gave me a prompt estimate, came back the next day to do all of the work and was always responsive. Professional, friendly and taught me more about plumbing than any past plumber has! Highly recommend.
    Jake Schlachter
    I had Greg come out for a service call to diagnose an issue I had. He was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and enthusiastic about his work. Greg went above and beyond in this service call. On a call for just one thing, he must have answered at least 20 different questions I had about my home and looked at my other plumbing fixtures and shut off valves. Greg was very efficient, so this did not take long. He was also thoughtful; he removed his shoes at the door near our shoe rack and he was clean and professional. At the end of the call, Greg and I went outside and he showed me where and how to shut off the main coming from the street. Something every homeowner should know before a crisis occurs. Thank you so much for your time Greg!! Well worth the service charge.

    Brent and Steven came by our house to look into a leak for us. The source was pretty elusive but they were able to determine a cause and solve for it in a timely fashion. They both were punctual, proactive, and responsive. Highly recommend them to anyone in need of their services.

    Recently, BDS Plumbing replaced my hot water heater. This is about the fourth job they have done for us. We find their work to be of high quality. The technicians are professional, polite and courteous. When we are next in need of plumbing work, I am sure we will call them again.

    My plumber was very professional and polite. He resolved my issue and also reviewed my account from a previous call from them. I am very satisfied with his work and the time it took for him to fix everything.
    Marc Talbot
    I'm so glad we found BDS Plumbing. They were professional and friendly, not to mention affordable for the emergency we were facing. Would recommend this company to anyone. Thanks to Brent and the crew for fixing our plumbing problems.

    Nobody “wants” to call a plumber. And let’s face it, you never know what to expect. Steven texted and gave me a 30 minute notice before he arrived (time to put the dog up).Then he took the time to not just answer my questions, but also went the extra length to explain things to me.He gave me the price. Admittedly I choked a bit, but he doesn’t set the prices, and they were competitive.I asked when he would be able to do the work, expecting him to say a few days. Nope, he said I’m ready now if you are. That was a surprise!I spent a few minutes making sure he had what he needed, then I went back in the other room and went back to WFH. I checked on him a time or two over the next few hours. He worked non-stop.Honestly, I have nothing to complain about. In today’s world, that says a lot.Just a reminder, you get what you pay for. If you wanna go cheap, expect to deal with issues and surprises. If you want it done hassle-free, call Steven at BDS.
    Toby Streetman
    BDS responded quickly and got a plumber to my home within a few hours of my call. They communicated with me about the arrival time and came on time.

    We have used BDS plumbing several times. They are responsive and professional. One of the time a tech came out to diagnose an issue in the yard without charging a fee stating he was nearby on another job already. Most recently Brent came out to fix a vanity leak. He didn’t have the necessary part to finish the job but promptly returned the next day to complete the repair. He didn’t charge us extra for the two trips. We trust BDS and will continue to use their service. Thank you!!🙏

    I had some pretty major issues upon buying a new home that had previously been renovated and updated. The plumbing was a disaster from the first week. Our main sewer line backed up. How the actual home inspector missed all this stuff is beyond me. Brent, Greg and team showed up very promptly. They kept the cost in mind and did a very cost effective approach instead of jacking up my floor and finding the bad pipe and eliminated it and replaced with new pipe. After living in the home we started to the smell of swamp gas. After farther review we had to get all of our drains trapped properly. I advise you anytime you buy a property pay a Licensed plumber to take a look as this has turned into a nightmare that could of been prevented. I learned my lesson. I would recommend BDS to any friends or family. I also want to start referring them to my commercial clients as i was so impressed by the professionalism and true passion for their trade.
    Teresa McClure

    Can’t say enough good things about BDS Plumbing Solutions. First, they actually cared enough to call me back and make an appointment for an estimate.

Even texted me later in the day to make sure we were completely satisfied. Give these guys a try, you will not be disappointed.

    Brent and the guys at BDS have done great work at our new and prior homes. They diagnosed and fixed problems that two previous plumbing companies missed and were extremely flexible, completing the work on a Sunday.
    Haley Bollinger
    Brent and his team are top notch! We used BDS Plumbing Solutions to replace all of the plumbing lines in my 3-story townhouse. His team was completely finished in only two days. They arranged a drywall crew to patch the holes shortly after they were complete. Whole project took about 3 days and now you can't even tell work was done. Awesome! About a month later I noticed a small water spot in the ceiling of my kitchen. Brent came out the next day and corrected the problem, with no additional charge. If you're looking for a honest plumber with reasonable pricing, I highly recommend using BDS Plumbing Solutions!
    Heather S
    I had a great experience with BDS Plumbing. My water heater was beginning to go so I needed to get a new one quickly. I called around to alot of places. BDS Plumbing was prompt and professional. They were out the next day with a new water heater. They did not pressure me to buy other services or warranties and they explained everything they did. I am very happy with the service i received and the water heater is doing great. Highly recommend.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is a backflow preventer?

    A backflow preventer is a critical plumbing device designed to protect potable water supplies from contamination by preventing the reverse flow of non-potable water or other substances into the clean water system. Backflow can occur when there is a drop in water pressure within the main supply line, causing the water to flow in the opposite direction, potentially drawing in pollutants, chemicals, or bacteria from sources like irrigation systems, industrial processes, or fire hydrants.

    The backflow preventer works by utilizing check valves that allow water to flow in only one direction, effectively blocking any backflow from occurring. There are different types of backflow preventers, including atmospheric vacuum breakers, pressure vacuum breakers, double-check valves, and reduced pressure zone devices, each tailored to specific applications and degrees of protection required.

    Installing and maintaining a backflow preventer is not only essential for complying with local plumbing codes and regulations but also a critical measure to ensure the safety and purity of the drinking water supply. As an expert in plumbing systems, I highly recommend engaging a licensed professional to select, install, and regularly test backflow preventers to safeguard public health and maintain the integrity of the water distribution system.

    How is backflow prevented?

    Backflow is prevented through the use of backflow preventers, which are specialized plumbing devices designed to ensure the unidirectional flow of water in potable water systems. These devices contain check valves that allow water to flow in one direction but prevent it from flowing backward.

    There are several types of backflow preventers, each suited to specific applications and levels of protection. Commonly used backflow preventers include atmospheric vacuum breakers, pressure vacuum breakers, double-check valves, and reduced pressure zone devices.

    Atmospheric vacuum breakers are simple devices that use air pressure to prevent backflow. Pressure vacuum breakers and double-check valves provide more robust protection and are commonly used in residential and commercial applications. Reduced pressure zone devices (RPZD) offer the highest level of protection and are typically used in industrial and high-risk settings.

    To maintain the effectiveness of backflow preventers, regular testing and maintenance are essential. Licensed plumbers should conduct periodic inspections and testing to ensure that the backflow preventer is functioning correctly and providing adequate protection against potential contamination of the potable water supply.

    Why is backflow prevention important?

    Backflow prevention is of utmost importance to safeguard public health and maintain the integrity of potable water systems. Backflow occurs when there is a reversal of water flow, allowing non-potable water or other contaminants to enter the clean water supply. This can happen due to a drop in water pressure, pipe bursts, or other unforeseen events.

    Contaminated water entering the drinking water supply poses severe health risks, as it can carry harmful bacteria, chemicals, or pollutants. Consuming such contaminated water can lead to waterborne illnesses and other health issues, especially for vulnerable populations such as children, elderly individuals, and those with compromised immune systems.

    Installing backflow preventers in plumbing systems is crucial for preventing these potential hazards. By employing specialized check valves, backflow preventers ensure that water flows only in one direction, preventing any backflow and protecting the potable water supply from contamination.

    Incorporating backflow prevention measures not only complies with local plumbing codes and regulations but also demonstrates a commitment to public safety. Regular testing and maintenance of backflow preventers by licensed professionals further enhance their effectiveness, ensuring a reliable defense against potential water contamination incidents.

    What is the meaning of backflow?

    Backflow refers to the undesirable reversal of water flow in a plumbing system, where water flows in the opposite direction than intended. This reversal can occur due to changes in water pressure within the system, causing non-potable water, chemicals, or contaminants to be drawn back into the clean water supply. Backflow can happen in various scenarios, such as when there is a sudden drop in water pressure, a water main break, or during high demand periods, leading to potential cross-connections between potable and non-potable water sources.

    Backflow poses a significant health risk, as it can contaminate the drinking water supply with harmful substances or pathogens, endangering public health. To mitigate these risks, backflow prevention measures, such as backflow preventers, are employed in plumbing systems. These devices utilize check valves to ensure that water flows in one direction only, preventing any backflow and safeguarding the purity of the potable water supply. Regular inspection, testing, and maintenance of backflow prevention devices by qualified professionals are vital to ensure their effectiveness in protecting public health and maintaining the integrity of the water distribution system.
