Upgrading Your Home’s Fixtures
Replacing a sink or faucet or adding a garbage disposal is a simple job in the right hands.

If you are looking for the perfect fixture, we can help you select the right one and then order it from one of our top manufacturers – including American Standard, Delta, Elkay, Fiat, Gerber, Goulds, Kohler, Moen, Oasis, Toto, and Zoeller.

Water Heater Repair and Installation
You use hot water all the time – to shower, wash dishes, and clean clothes. When there’s a problem with your hot water heater, it is not a minor inconvenience. Our experienced plumbers will deliver the new tank, install it, and haul away the old one. With a new installation, we can also convert your hot water system from electric to natural gas or propane.

Tankless Water Heaters. Tankless water heating systems, also known as on-demand hot water heaters, are gaining in popularity in certain parts of the United States. Advantages include greater efficiency as you are only heating water right when you need it.

Tankless water heating systems in the Lancaster area have their place, however there are some things to consider for a homeowner here in the Lancaster area. While there are some great advantages, there are some things that homeowners in our region might need to take into consideration. For a tankless hot water system in southcentral Pennsylvania, often times one may need to consider making sure that a water softening system is included in their home to mitigate the effects of ‘hard’ water.  We would recommend, if possible, that you use natural gas, propane, or fuel oil to operate a tankless water heater; electric tankless systems are typically not satisfactory to meet the demands of a whole-home water system as they will collect calcium and lime deposits on the heating elements from the ‘hard’ water in this area.

Call us at 717.299.5641 to learn what water heater options best fit your needs in the Lancaster area.


Water Conditioning Systems
If you notice blue streaks, rust stains, or mineral deposits in your tub or sink, you may need a treatment system to remove calcium, lime, iron, and other materials.

We specialize in testing for your water’s hardness, pH levels, and iron count, and we can recommend a treatment plan to make your water better for your family and your home’s pipes.

We service and install water conditioning systems from top brands, and we also install water softeners, acid neutralizers, carbon filters, iron removal systems, and reverse-osmosis filtration systems.

Some water conditioning systems are better than others at treating and filtering your home’s water, you want to be sure that you get the best value for what you are paying for and that it effectively suits your needs.

Our plumbers will gladly explain how your water system works and how any additional treatments will improve the quality of your family’s water.

Call us at 717.299.5641 to schedule a test of your home’s water system.

Comprehensive Annual Inspections

Annual inspections are common for heating and air conditioning systems, but what about your home’s water system? At Brubaker Inc., we offer a comprehensive annual inspection to members of our Diamond Club.
