Water filtration systems are important because they purify the drinking water and we have systems for both our Water Filtration Systems Services Lincoln NEresidential and commercial clients. Filtration is essential no matter if the water comes from the town or a well. However, if water comes from a well it is absolutely essential to put in a system that will make it safe for drinking or general use. Since water is used every day, it is imperative that measures are taken so that the water remains safe. Biggerstaff Plumbing & Heating, Inc can do that for you.

The very first step that you need to take is to contact a professional. Our staff will set you up with someone who will meet with you and give you an estimate. Before the estimate can happen, however, your water will need to be tested. Based on the results of this test we will be able to formulate a filtration plan that will meet all your needs. For example, if your water contains excess iron, you will want a system that will remove it. There is a tailored water treatment plan that will meet your needs.

Once you get the water tested, you will want to share the results with us so that we come up with a plan and give you a quote. We will sit down with you and explain in detail the water filtration system that we came up with. At this point, you can ask us any questions you may have. Filtration corrects problems such as poor taste, radon content, improper mineral balance, and cleanliness.


There are also different types of water filters that can be used. First of all, there are filters that can treat the whole house and there are also those that can target a specific pipe or room. For instance, people often place an additional filter underneath the kitchen sink that is designed to improve the water's flavor. There are also filters that use carbon and those that use salt.
Water filtration systems are used to improve water quality and in some cases, make the water safe for consumption. We service our commercial and residential clients with systems that are uniquely tailored to their needs. We are devoted to coming up with a filtration plan that not only meets your needs but is within budget.

Are you taking cold showers because your Lincoln, NE water heater is damaged or in need of repair services? Call Biggerstaff Plumbing & Heating, Inc, your water heater experts, at (402) 466-8118 for immediate services today!

A hot water heater is one of the most trouble-free household appliances. When it does go bad, the whole family complains. Most people do not enjoy cold showers, and it is a chore to heat water on the stove to wash dishes. If you live in the Lincoln, Nebraska area, the Biggerstaff Plumbing and Heating Company is ready to provide prompt service by repairing or replacing your hot water heater.


Accessories are available that make a hot water tank safer. Water heaters are often installed in basements. This means that a leak can develop without the homeowner's knowledge. This could result in a flooded basement and expensive damage to carpeted floors. A pan can be installed under the heater to catch the water and divert it to a sewer. An audible alarm can be installed to alert the homeowner.

A timer can be installed on electric hot water heaters that shuts the power off during hours that hot water demand is unlikely. This can result in considerable savings.

Gas water heaters can be raised above ground level. This reduces the chance of an explosion if a flammable liquid is accidentally spilled.


If you have an electric hot water heater, the heating element may need replacement. Our technicians are highly-trained and fully-qualified to restore your hot water system. They will inspect your water heater for leaks or other defects. The safety valve will be tested for proper operation. A non-functioning safety valve can cause an explosion in case of overheating. If the heating element is replaced, the technician will check for sediment buildup in the bottom of the tank. Sediment buildup is one cause of heating element failure.

If your hot water supply is not sufficient at times, you should consider installing a larger size heater. A new tankless or on-demand heater is now available. It is usually more energy-efficient because it heats water on demand. Heat is not wasted in maintaining a storage tank full of hot water when there is no demand. These heaters are available in electric, natural gas and propane gas models.
