How Long Will Your Water Heater Last?

With the right maintenance and care, your home's hot water heater should last a long time. In general, a well-kempt water heater should last more than ten years. Like all things, however, nothing lasts forever. With time, your water heater will get to a point where it will need heavy maintenance or even replacement before your life is interrupted.

At Delk Plumbing, our team of experts can help repair or replace your home's water heater - whichever is best for your budget and your situation.

Plumbers Drain Cleaning FAQS

As Summerville's top choice for plumbing services since 1978, we've learned a thing or two about drain cleaning over the years. To keep yourself educated and up-to-date, here are answers to some of the most common questions we're asked:

Q:How many times per year should I have my drains cleared?

A:That all depends on what's going down your drains and how often they're used. If you have a large family, leftover grease from food and hair from showers will cause clogs quickly. In this scenario, you should clear your drains often. If you live alone and don't use your kitchen or laundry drains often, you shouldn't have to clear them as frequently as a large family.

Q:More than one of my drains is moving slowly. What's happening?

A:When two or more drains are moving slowly, you may have a main sewer line problem. These clogs are often caused by wet wipes, tree roots, and kitchen grease.

Q:How do you clean clogged drains?

A:That depends on the type of drain that's clogged. You can clean sink drains with simple household items like vinegar and baking soda. Other drains, like bathtub drains, are best cleaned with a zip stick to remove hairballs. If you're unsure how to clean a clogged drain, it's always best to rely on professional plumbers like Delk Plumbing. Don't make the situation worse than it already is!

Summerville tract sells for nearly $17M to Virginia firm; new Charleston apartments open

A large Berkeley County tract near the Summerville area’s industrial real estate epicenter recently sold for nearly $17 million.

Rushmark Properties paid $16.8 million in late May for about 300 acres along Interstate 26 southwest of Jedburg Road and north of Dawson Branch Road, according to public land records.

The largest chunk of land in the transaction — about 263 acres — was sold by North Charleston Lands Corp. for about $15.3 million. A group of smaller adjoining parcels made up the remainder of the deal.

The property is just west of a parcel off Woodhill Patch Lane near Jedburg Road that was sold for $5.75 million in October to an affiliate of Camping World.

A representative of Rushmark did not respond to a request for comment about the plans for its newly acquired property.

The Falls Church, Va.-based firm has been active in the local market for years. Among Rushmark’s previous commercial real estate holdings was a part ownership with Charleston developer and investor Frank Haygood in the S.H. Kress & Co. building at 281 King St. on the peninsula. They sold the art deco-style structure for $19.5 million in 2019.

Now open

A new apartment development is now open on the Charleston peninsula.

Quarterra Multifamily, a subsidiary of single-family homebuilding giant Lennar Corp., and Cresset Partners last week announced the completion of the 303-unit Cormac Apartments where Morrison Drive meets Meeting Street Road.

Real Estate

The rental complex has studio to two-bedroom apartments with monthly rates ranging from $1,500 to $4,000. Residents have access to a controlled-access, three-story, above-grade garage as well as on-street parking and 19 electric-vehicle charging stations.

The complex also features an eighth-floor rooftop terrace with a butler kitchen. Three elevated courtyards can be found on the fourth floor, including one with a pool and clubhouse.

Cormac also includes 13,068 square feet of retail space and a pair of public ground-level courtyards. The moniker comes from the birth name of 18th-century pirate Anne Bonny, who may have lived in Charleston as a child.

New builder

The company behind a Berkeley County tract as big as the Charleston peninsula is adding its own homebuilder to the lineup of companies already doing business at the site.

Brookfield Residential, which acquired Newland, the former developer of the 5,000-acre Nexton project near Summerville in 2021, plans to build a new collection of townhomes in the mixed-use community as its first project in South Carolina.

The builder is an affiliate of Brookfield Properties, which invests in logistics, hospitality and retail assets. Among its holdings is Columbiana Centre in the Midlands.

The Nexton townhomes will be built in the Midtown neighborhood. The 1,600-square-foot, two-story, three-bedroom properties will be priced starting in the mid-$300,000s.

They also can be outfitted with extra driveway space and a one- or two-car garage. Pre-sales will begin mid-summer with a model residence opening later this year.

Builders in Nexton have sold more than 2,600 homes to date. At completion, it’s projected to have more than 7,000 dwellings, or about 17,500 residents, making it as big as the populations of Moncks Corner and Georgetown combined.

Other Nexton builders include Ashton Woods, Centex, David Weekley, Del Webb, Homes by Dickerson, New Leaf, Pulte Homes, Saussy Burbank and True Homes.

Nexton is owned by a subsidiary of North America Sekisui House LLC and is managed by Brookfield.

Rebranding

A national nonprofit with an office in Charleston that provides apartment companies with pre-screened, trained and ready-to-work talent is now operating under a new name.

The former Shelters to Shutters is now Entryway.

The multifamily industry continues to grapple with high turnover rates for entry-level employees. Entryway offers a unique program that focuses on sourcing talent where hiring managers may not be looking: individuals and families at risk of or facing situational homelessness.

The nonprofit offers training, employment and housing to qualified individuals who aren’t living on the street but are close to it.

Berkeley, Summerville mark 100 years of rivalry football

One hundred years ago, Berkeley and Summerville played football for the first time.“Moncks Corner overwhelmed by large score,” reported the Charleston News and Courier on Nov. 3, 1923. Summerville defeated the old Moncks Corner High School by 59-6.“The entire Summerville backfield, Riggs at tackle and Hutchinson at end starred,” the article said. “O.

One hundred years ago, Berkeley and Summerville played football for the first time.

“Moncks Corner overwhelmed by large score,” reported the Charleston News and Courier on Nov. 3, 1923. Summerville defeated the old Moncks Corner High School by 59-6.

“The entire Summerville backfield, Riggs at tackle and Hutchinson at end starred,” the article said. “O. Sanders at quarterback played a splendid game for Moncks Corner.”

Friday’s contest at John McKissick Field in Summerville will be the 88th overall in the series. The teams played sporadically in the 1930s and ’40s, mostly in the postseason.

The rivalry has featured many players who went on to star in college and in the NFL, and great coaches such as Summerville’s John McKissick and Berkeley’s Gerald Moody and Jerry Brown. Summerville announced Friday that the McKissick Museum, dedicated to the winningest football coach of all time, will open at 6 p.m. Sept. 1 before the Berkeley game.

Our town, our coach.Join us this evening for the McKissick Museum grand opening, tonight at 6:00 before we take on the Berkeley Stags. pic.twitter.com/jkVptNq7JZ

— Summerville Football (@SummervilleFB) September 1, 2023

The series heated up in the late 1950s, and the teams have played nearly every year from 1960-2007. That 2007 season saw each school play teams from Florida as part of a doubleheader. The series resumed in 2008 and has been played every year since.

Summerville holds a 61-23 edge in victories, with four games ending in a tie. The Green Wave holds the longest winning streak at 11 games in the series. The Stags won three straight from 2017-19, but Summerville has won the last three contests.

Current Summerville head coach Ian Rafferty is 5-0 all-time in the series. Rafferty was a player in two wins back in the 1990’s and has won all three meetings since he has been head coach.

For a long time, Berkeley and Summerville were the only high schools in their respective counties. The creation of new high schools over the years have added other rivals to each team’s schedules. Goose Creek came along in 1969, followed by fellow Berkeley County schools Stratford (1983) and Cane Bay (2008).

In Summerville’s district, Fort Dorchester (1992) and Ashley Ridge (2008) have also become rivals for the Green Wave.

“I think it still means a lot to some people, but things have really changed over the years,” Rafferty said of the Berkeley game.

Berkeley’s Eric Lodge, as a new head coach in the Lowcountry, is experiencing his first game against Summerville. The game still means a lot in Moncks Corner, he’s been told.

“I heard about that game during the interview process,” Lodge said. “I got the impression that for a lot of people, it’s still a big deal.”

As for this year’s meeting, one team will take its first loss of 2023. Summerville, the top-ranked team in the state for Class AAAAA, won its opener last week at Carolina Forest. Berkeley is off to a 2-0 start with wins over Timberland and Hanahan by a total of five points.

Both teams have excellent quarterbacks in junior Jaden Cummings at Summerville and freshman Henry Rivers at Berkeley.

“We need to play better than we did last week,” Rafferty said. “Berkeley has some good talent. Their quarterback (freshman Henry Rivers) is the real deal. They have our full attention.”

Lodge says the Green Wave is worthy of its lofty state ranking. He says Summerville has explosiveness on offense with a physical, fast defense.

Wright Cousins

Another area rivalry resumes on Saturday night as Cross hosts Berkeley County rival Timberland at 6 p.m. Cross head coach Shaun Wright and Timberland head coach Greg Wright are first cousins (their fathers are brothers). This will be the third matchup between the two as head coaches, with each having a win.

Timberland has dominated the overall series, which began after Timberland opened in 1997. Cross won games in 2000 and 2001 but did not win again in the series until last season.

In fact, Cross won the 2001 game when Greg Wright scored the winning touchdown for the Trojans. His cousin, Shaun, was an assistant coach on that team.

“Timberland sort of took off when Art Craig got there as head coach,” said Shaun Wright, who became an assistant at Timberland in 2002. “It should be a great game on Saturday night. Timberland is 0-2 but they could easily be 2-0. They are good.”

Cross is 1-1 with a win over Hemingway and a loss to Calhoun County. Timberland lost to Berkeley (36-32) and Indian Land (7-6).

Charleston restaurant opens, another closes; 2 new dining venues on way to Summerville

Charleston gained one restaurant and lost another during the past few days while two new dining venues are coming to the Summerville area.

Charleston Hospitality Group opened Republic of Pizza at 451 King St. on May 31 next door to sister restaurant Toast! on King. Salad-server Verde at 347 King closed its doors on May 26.

The pizzeria is the group’s 11th property in South Carolina, joining several Toast! All Day locations, Queology, Eli’s Table, John King Grill & Bar and Honkytonk.

The new restaurant offers appetizers, small plates, salads and Neapolitan-style wood-fired pizzas. It’s open from 3 p.m. until midnight daily. Beer, wine, cocktails as well as cappuccino and espresso drinks also are available.

A second pizza location is planned for Savannah later this year, according to Eric Parker, chief operating officer.

Lights out

A couple of blocks north of the pizzeria, a restaurant that launched a dozen years ago shuttered its flagship venue.

Verde closed after the owners decided not to renew their lease, according to a Facebook post. The owners hinted that they might not go away completely from the peninsula.

“We will continue to focus on our smaller footprint locations (keep your eyes peeled downtown),” according to the posting.

Verde has other restaurants on Coleman Boulevard and Long Point Road in Mount Pleasant and on Magnolia Road in West Ashley. It also offers On the Go locations at Charleston International Airport and the Medical University of South Carolina.

What’s cooking?

Another restaurant tenant has signed onto a new retail development near Summerville.

Mexican venture Catrinas recently leased 4,567 square feet in the One Nexton development at One Nexton Boulevard off Nexton Parkway. The site will be anchored by Publix supermarket.

Hannah Kamba and Brent Case of Coldwell Banker Commercial Atlantic represented the tenant. Jeff Yurfest of The Shopping Center Group represented the landlord, C4 Nexton PLX LLC, an affiliate of Charlotte-based developer Crosland Southeast, which bought the 24-acre site in 2021 for $12 million.

Sweet shop Dulce and Woodhaven Pizza recently signed leases in One Nexton as well.

On the way

Also in the works is a new restaurant venture in Summerville by the owners of a nearby dining venue.

Ginny and Chris VanZile, who own Lowcountry Fish Camp at 903 Central Ave., will open a pub-style diner called Lowcountry Public House at 1426 Central Ave. by late summer. It’s the former location of Ledyard Bar B Que Co.

New threads

A clothing retailer with stores in several major U.S. cities and abroad is coming to downtown Charleston.

Reformation plans to open in the summer in the 3,000-square-foot space vacated by retailer Steve Madden earlier this year at 287 King St., according to Wade Allen, president of the commercial real estate firm Lee & Associates, which handled the lease for the landlord.

The Los Angeles-based retailer’s website shows it is looking for a store manager in Charleston. Interior renovation is underway.

Real Estate

In addition to its home base, the company has shops in Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Honolulu, Miami, New York, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and sites outside the U.S. in Toronto and London.

A company representative did not immediately respond for comment.

In the works

A downtown Charleston restaurant plans to add a sipping lounge and private salon where an ice cream shop once operated.

Felix Cocktails et Cuisine at 550 King St. will add La Cave at Felix later this year in the 1,650-square-foot space left vacant in February when Odd Fellows Ice Cream Shop closed after 15 months in business.

What’s brewing?

A new brewery is inching closer to opening in the Charleston area.

High Score Brewing Co. recently applied for a state license to sell beer and wine for on-site use at 8210 Windsor Hill Blvd. near Ashley Phosphate Road in North Charleston.

Last fall, the brewery leased 5,000 square feet with a target of opening this summer. The new business also will offer arcade games and consoles from the 1970s through the 1990s.

It’s still in the construction phase but look for an opening by late summer, according to a company representative.

COLUMBIA — Topgolf has expressed initial interest in building a location in the Columbia area.

The mega driving range entertainment company has entered the development process in Lexington County for property at 309 Paris Road, along Interstate 26 northwest of downtown Columbia, according to Planning Commission reports.

In an email, Topgolf said it did not have any information to share about a possible venue in the area at this time. Property owners of the 13-acre parcel near the Piney Grove Road interchange, Greenville-based Realty Link, also did not respond to messages left by The Post and Courier.

This is not the first time Topgolf has entered development talks with Lexington County, according to county planning officials. The company had been exploring possible development of the property prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, but those efforts never progressed.

There is no guarantee that a deal for a new venue will come to fruition. But if Topgolf were to go forward with development, Columbia would mark the company’s fourth location in South Carolina, joining multi-story driving range towers built in Myrtle Beach, Greenville and North Charleston.

Enrollment is officially open for interested parents and families to sign up for a new private preschool opening up in the summer of 2024.

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCSC) - Enrollment is officially open for interested parents and families to sign up for a new private preschool opening up in the summer of 2024.

Goddard Schools Summerville is a unique program focused on behavioral health and well-being through play and inquiry-based training.

“Our mission is kindergarten readiness for all of our students,” Goddard Schools Summerville Co-owner Amy Strickland said. “And we serve families with little ones from 6 weeks up til right before kindergarten starts.”

The curriculum gives kids a chance to learn their own way by using their senses and minds to make early education more engaging and exciting.

“It empowers children to find their voices, ask questions,” Strickland said.

There are hundreds of these programs across the nation, Nexton’s new location being the eighth in South Carolina.

Tuition will vary depending on the age of your children, how many you hope to enroll and what schedules you would prefer.

The school needs final approval before it can begin building the facility. Officials hope to start construction next week.

The school will be located in a developing shopping center on Nexton Parkway and Brighton Park Boulevard.

The area is being built up and occupied by young families.

Some tell me that’s why it is the perfect spot.

One local parent with a former Goddard student says it’s been hard for young families to find childcare resources in the area.

“The Charleston childcare scene is absolutely in a deficit, we really need more and more,” Parent Katie Olejniczak said. “I know a lot of families there that desperately need daycare or desperately need an early childhood development program. And these waitlists are absolutely absurd.”

Olejniczak says the program made a remarkable impact on her daughter’s lifestyle.

“Cam in general loves being around people, loves playing, and she was just in such a positive environment.”

Strickland says it’s the most fulfilling experience she’s had.

“To be able to send 40 kids year after year to kindergarten not scared, not anxious, but happy and confident and ready to take on the world and so excited about school,” Strickland said. If they’re excited about school when they start kindergarten, that really maintains.”

Owners hope to kickstart an office space so that interested families can meet in person and ask questions.

For now, if you’re interested in joining the program as family or staff, you can find out more here.

SC Dept. of Parks, Recreation and Tourism gives grant for tourism in Summerville

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCSC) - The S.C. Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism recently granted nearly $34,000 to bring more people into Summerville.

The town, acknowledged for its charm, history and its people, wants to make sure everyone gets to experience some of the Summerville way.

“It feels good to be able to show off our hometown to people who can come visit and vacation here,” Town of Summerville Public Information Officer Chris Makowski said. “And to really see the beauty and the people that are here.”

Summerville sees a record number of visitors, sitting at around 250,000 every year and housing more than 50,000 permanent residents.

The town hopes to boost the statewide economy by encouraging tourism and development in the area.

The community shared their thoughts on the funding and what they hope to see come out of it.

One family, planning to move to the area in just a few weeks, was ecstatic.

“As far as bringing tourists in, I do feel like it’s worth it,” future Summerville homeowner Whitney Mourlam said. “It’s just a gem, and it’s worth coming inland a little bit to check it out.”

“It’s a great location, like a little way from the touristy feel but you can really blend in and feel like you’re a local right away,” future Summerville homeowner Mark Mourlam said. “We want to grow our family down here and live everything Summerville has to offer.”

One long-term resident said he enjoys seeing his town thrive, but worries about what it could mean for traffic, infrastructure and the cost of living.

“I’ve watched the growth, and it’s terrific how fast and how large this place has gotten,” Summerville Homeowner John Calvert said. “But you can only build so many apartments and so many subdivisions. We’re running out of space!”

There are no specific projects or plans for the grant.

The Town of Summerville says they want to allocate the money toward marketing campaigns through social media, magazines and the local visitor center, to name a few.
