I have known the Putman’s for years. I keep coming back because of the quality of service and promptness with which emergencies are handled. (Thank you for that!) They have a high moral standard as well as strong work ethic. Putman has a very distinctive personality. As a business owner myself, I admire the thought that goes into creating the type of business you can be proud of! D. Buchanan
Let’s face it, everyone loves Snuggies and Chia Pets, but their novelty always wears off quickly. If you’re looking for the perfect gift for that special someone, why not consider something they can appreciate for years to come?
Maybe your wife would love to soak in a bigger tub, or have a shower head with a massager. Your husband might like a taller sink so he doesn’t have to bend down so far to shave. Instead of buying each other gloves and scarves, think about something you could both enjoy all year long.
If your mother has been complaining about the buildup on her dishes and shower stall, she might benefit from a water softening system. Hard water contains high levels of minerals that can make water taste bad, clog drains, leave buildup on dishes and keep appliances from working their best. Water softening systems or conditioners reduce these mineral levels, giving you clean, clear water.
A water conditioning and softening system can be installed under the sink for kitchen needs, or used as a whole house system.
Tired of filling up the filtered water pitcher over and over again? You may want to consider having a filtering system installed under your kitchen sink. We can make recommendations so your family can enjoy clean water straight from your faucet.
These are just a few of the services we can help you with. We can also give you advice about new dishwashers, garbage disposals, and more. If you have any questions, give us call!
We’re thankful for our customers, and always love to take on calls when our services are needed. But we’d also like for you to make the most of your time with family this Thanksgiving – and that means not having to call us in the middle of dinner to clear a pipe.
The best way to avoid sewer backups and overflows is to not pour fats, oils, and grease down the drain. Have you seen images that show how fatty foods can clog human arteries? Well, the pipes under your sink can be affected the same way. Grease clings to the inside of the pipe, eventually building up and causing a complete blockage. When that happens, your sewer system can get backed up and cause all kinds of problems.
Here are a few examples of things to avoid putting down the sink or garbage disposal:
Before washing or placing dishes into the dishwasher, scrape and wipe pots, pans, and plates with paper towels and toss materials into the trash.
We hope you enjoy your time with family this Thanksgiving. If you do find yourself with a plumbing problem, give us a call.
Since the majority of homeowners are right-handed, most contractors don’t think about how inconvenient traditional kitchens are for lefties. So if you’re left-handed and are building a home or renovating your kitchen, make sure to voice a few preferences that will make your kitchen more functional for you.
When washing dishes, a lefty usually sets the dirty dishes in the right side of the sink and puts the clean dishes to the left. Make sure there’s enough room on both sides, but you may want to make the counter space on the left side a little bigger.
If your faucet has a side-mount lever, have it placed on the left, if available. You can also ask for a soap dispenser to be placed to the left of the faucet.
It’s probably easier for you to rinse or empty a cup in the sink and put it in the dishwasher if it’s on the left of the sink instead of to the right.
Have your pot and pan cabinets placed to the left of your stove. You’ll also be reaching for potholders in a drawer on the left side of the oven.
We can talk to you about options in left-handed faucets, and can install that dishwasher for you. Give us a call at Putman Plumbing. We’re happy to help!

If you recall one of the most famous marketing taglines of all time, you know the story of Avis: We’re Number Two, but we try harder.
That means Avis carved out a position against Hertz of excelling with service. And it worked. That line meant that customers understood that the important thing was not who was number one, but who would provide better service. In fact, Avis made the customer feel like number one, which is what is really important after all.
That’s why we at Putman Plumbing are delighted with our Number Two finish in the Best of Frederick voting for 2013. When you call Putman, you will always be number one because we will promise to always “try harder” and give you and your home the absolute best level of service you will get anywhere in Frederick County. Thank you!
