Your prices are reasonable, you are honest about what services are needed and your folks are great! They listen to my questions and concerns about future projects and provided input. I would also say that you were there when you said you would be and that you performed the necessary repairs in a timely manner. Kathy Murtagh

Haunted Houses in Frederick County
If you’re feeling brave, lots of haunted houses will be open on Halloween. Find one on this website and head there if you dare!
Spooky screams, knocks and creaks are fun if you’re in a haunted house, but not if you’re hearing them when your water turns on or off. Any time you hear these sounds coming from your plumbing system, give us a call so we can see what the problem is before it causes a major issue..
Squealing pipes occur when water from a large pipe flows into a smaller pipe. Our plumber may need to adjust the pressure valve, or it may require replacing a worn washer or valve.
A screaming sound could mean you need a new washer or that the tap stem needs lubrication. These are fairly easy fixes for our plumbers, and much better than dealing with leaks down the road.
A loud banging sound when the water turns on or off is called water hammer in the plumbing world. It can happen when there’s a sudden change in water pressure, which sends a surge of pressure into the tap or valve, and if the pipes are loose, they may bang into the walls. What’s even more scary than the sound is that eventually, it can lead to broken pipes, damaged fittings, or damaged appliances. A trusted plumber may install a pressure-limiting valve at the main line, and sleeve the pipes to stop them from hitting the wall.
Happy Halloween from all of us at Putman Plumbing. Remember that our brave plumbers are always here if you need us!
