I called Alamo City's Elite Electric today, Saturday, October 31st. Since it was a Saturday, I was not expecting much help. Boy, was I wrong! Scott Garcia, an employee of Alamo City, kindly answered my phone call right away. I explained to him that Alamo City Elite was the company that did the electrical for my new home in the River Chase subdivision of New Braunfels, TX. I also told him that I had an outside outlet stop working during the major flooding and rains yesterday. He walked me through the process of finding the GFCI resets and we finally found the problem. Over the phone, this employee was so patient in helping me track down and rule out possible issues that would cause my outlet to quit working. It was a big deal as that was the outlet that my internet and cable plugged in to, so they were not working either. It turns out, the reason my outside outlet quit working temporarily was actually a protective measure for homeowners. So he explained to me what I needed to do which was to locate and reset the appropriate GFCI switch. This was all news to me, but am thankful these measures are in place in my home. He was so professional, helpful, courteous and knowledgeable that I was able to cancel my call to the cable/internet provider as he fixed my issues and gave me back my connectivity to cable, internet and my entertainment systems. Thank you Scott Garcia, for answering the Saturday morning phone call, and troubleshooting our electrical problem; you were/are a bright and shining light and we appreciate your patience. As customers of Alamo City's Elite Electric, you have definitely earned our loyalty and respect!! Keep up the great work, Scott and Alamo City's Elite Electric!!
We hired A&A after getting a free quote for installing new water softner. Their workers were on time and provided great info and advice. We interviewed another company but A&A impressed us. NOTE: We also had 4 OTHER water service providers spiels - one even show up as soon as we pulled into the driveway an hour after we closed!! So we heard about 6 pitches total. A&A prices were comparable - we paid around $2.5K, which includes maintenance plan. Something that not all other pitches even mentioned. The same A&A guys (David & Abe) who provided the inital quote also worked on our softner and definitely put in the hours to get the job done correct and on time. They also informed us about the service plan that goes one step more with just installing a water softner - I'm glad we went their plan. None of the other pitches clarified as clearly the level of work or services need to maintain our system. In the long run, we have peace of mind and guanrantees with our installation & maintenance of our system. About 2 weeks ago I noticed a billing fluke and called the office. They fixed the issue quickly and efficiently. As a new resident to Texas, I'm very impressed with the quality of workmanship and professionalism of A&A plumbing and have already and will continue to recommend their services.
Call A-TEX first!!! This is a REAL review by a REAL CUSTOMER. A-TEX came out and fixed a leak in our front yard that was supposedly repaired by another plumber a few months ago. The first plumber gave us a 1 yr warranty for the work but when we called to tell him about the leak all we got were excuses and lies and eventually he wouldn't even take our calls. I called A-TEX and David and Anthony arrived to our home in no time. My husband had already dug the hole so the guys easily assessed the problem and showed us what was wrong and explained everything along the way even showing us what poor work the first plumber did. They quoted us an excellent price and even gave us a discount because my husband had already dug the hole. These guys are professional, courteous and give great customer service. You can tell they care about their customers and their reputation. They checked and rechecked everything before they left and even gave us a suggestion regarding packing the hole with sand which we wouldn't have known to do. I would highly recommend that you call them first and don't waste your time or your money for that matter on anyone else. I would definitely recommend them to others and will call them again in a heartbeat if I have other plumbing needs. Thanks A-TEX from a grateful and appreciative customer.
My a/c went out Friday. I called Jon Wayne (bad move). They came out and said my blower motor & circuit board went out. They said it was one of the most expensive motors the had and that they recommended replace entire system for $7200 but if I wanted to replace just the blower motor & circuit board it would be $3500. Called out All Seasons a/c & heating on Sunday for a 2nd opinion. They also said it needed a blower motor and a circuit board. They were quite apologetic about the high cost of the blower motor as they too said it was one of the most expensive blower motors made. Then they informed us they could replace the blower motor and circuit board for $979.00. I strongly recommend you call Jason at All Seasons A/C & Heating (210)566-6654 if you have a problem with your unit. Jason not only fixed the A/C for $2,500 less than the competition he also took the time to explain what he had to do and why. He took a few minutes after he was done to show my wife and me some ways we could extend the life of our A/C unit. It is hard to know who to call when you have problems like this. I thought I would pass along a first hand account from a positive experience.
I called four different plumbing companies trying to get a quote for the replacement of the Temperature/Pressure valve of a 40 Gallon gas water heater. Quotes went from $190 to $400 for a very simple repair. I finally resolved to call Lujan Plumbing, I got an estimate for $112 with a $10 discount that brought it to $102. I have scheduled for the next day at 10AM. The next day, Mr. Frank Lujan showed up on time and he have taken a look at Temperature/Pressure valve which surprisingly appeared o be working, but after further inspection he advised me that I should replace it, because when activated, it would leave a small stream of water would be leaking. I agreed with his decision, and he completed the work in less than 20 minutes. The old Temperature/Pressure valve was extremely corroded, and it would not have caused a lot of problems if I decided to keep it. Frank made sure that there is no leak, and cleaned the work area before leaving. I am extremely pleased with Mr. Frank's honesty, work ethics and professionalism, and I would like to recommend him for anyone looking for a professional plumbing service at a reasonable price.
I like working with Michael and Yolanda Ortega. Michael's a diligent plumber, comes promptly to do good work and gets the job done quickly and honestly and cordially. I've had him out several times to do different plumbing jobs--expansion tank for my water heater (recommended by a Home Inspector), cleaning out a slow tub drain, installing my new sink plumbing in the kitchen after a granite countertop upgrade we did with Costco contractors. When we had the new sink plumbing done, we first called Aramendia Plumbers because we had seen their advertising on TV. They came and estimated the job at $500 less a 10% senior citizen discount = $450. I hit the ceiling said "No way!" and almost threw them out for such banditry. I then worked with MagicService to find Ortega Plumbing. He promptly came out and did the same job for $164.00! Can you believe that difference in price?? Some of the companies out there will steal you blind if you let them. It's really nice to find a great personable and competent plumber like Michael. He's my plumber from now on!
I was having issues with our outlets in the garage this happen on Friday evening called was able to get the emergency phone number. I spoke to a supervisor. He was able to help me out I explained I had a freezer plugged in and it tripped the gfci and none of my outlets were working. He stated that my freezer needed a dedicated line couldn't be on a regular outlet that it would eventually burn it out. But as a temp fix he walked me thru how to reset the gfci and said they could come out to give me an estimate for a dedicated line. Who knew you needed a dedicated line for a freezer in garage never was told this I lived in a house that was 30 yrs old prior to this new one but it makes sense now new guideless to keep our houses from burning down. But I MUST SAY ALAMO CITY'S ELITE ELECTRIC HAS GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE.... THANK YOU.
I recently had the pleasure of purchasing a complete Trane heating and cooling system from your company. I wanted to take a moment of your valuable time to let you know how pleased I am with this system. It has made a tremendous difference in the cooling of my home. Moreover, it has lowered my electric bill by more than $40.00 in just one month. However, more important than the obvious monetary savings is the excellent customer service I received from your company. I was treated with respect right from the start. Your employees were truly interested in finding the correct system to fit my specific needs, and not just how much they could sell me. In this day and age finding a company that puts the customer in front of the dollar sign is becoming the exception rather than the rule. I applaud you for being that exception.
These guys bid on the HVAC work for my house I was building in China Grove. Out of 7 bids they gave me the best deal ($6,300). They offered to install a high efficiency unit that would meet the standards of the CPS rebate, a factory rebate (from Goodman) and a federal tax credit. They brought all the paperwork for me to fill out and helped fill it out as well. Nick and Aaron did the work for me. They were in and out in less than a day for the rough-in portion of the work. Six weeks later, they showed up for the finish and start up. They were done in less than 2 hours!! The inspector passed them and remarked on the excellent unit installed. If I ever have problems with my unit, or need a new unit installed, I'm calling All Seasons A/C and Heating. They're honest and trustworthy.
Daryl & Clay were at my house within 2 hours. Daryl performed diagnostics on my outside unit & determined it was a bad breaker in my breaker box- not my A/C unit. He explained that an electrician would be needed to fix the problem. He then scheduled an electrician come by the next morning. He reached for his invoice book as I reached for my checkbook. "oh, there's no charge" he said. "This is a FREE service call." Are you kidding me? Come on now. What's the catch? There WAS no catch. After getting my eyes poked out dozens of times by every trade imaginable, "Will"Fix It" goes "old-school" and sends out 2 professionals to help me & my family. Wow. Well done, guys. Thank you Daryl M. so much & good luck Clay.
If your toilet is losing water, the problem can usually be quickly identified by taking a look inside the tank.
Under the tank's lid, you'll see a few items:
To understand what could be going awry in your toilet, it's best to first know what happens with each of these items. When you flush the toilet, the handle pulls on a lever attached to the flapper's chain. The flapper then lifts up and lets the fresh water in the tank flow into the bowl.
As the water drains, the float drops to the bottom of the tank, which triggers another lever. This lever turns on the pump, and begins to fill the tank up with fresh water. The pump is turned off when the float reaches the top of the tank again. The water should not go past the top of the overflow tube.
An old or damaged flapper is one of the most likely culprits behind a running toilet. The flapper needs to create a tight seal so water doesn't leak down into the bowl. If water is slowly seeping past the plug, the float will eventually be lowered enough to trigger the pump to turn on.
To replace the flapper:
Flappers are generally pretty universal, so the biggest thing you'll need to take note of is the size. Older toilets generally have a 2-inch outlet valve diameter, while newer ones more likely have a 3-inch outlet valve diameter.
The resting place of your float is key here. If the float naturally rises above the overflow tube, the pump won't turn off until the water reaches that position. Then, water will go down the overflow tube, lowering the water level in the tank, starting the process over again. To solve this, simply readjust the rod so the float's resting place is below the overflow tube.
When the toilet isn't being flushed, the chain leading to the flapper shouldn't be too tight. This could be lifting the flapper enough to let water through. Check the flapper position and the chain and adjust as needed so the flapper shuts tight.
