There are numerous signs and indications that your sewer line is in trouble. Watch for the following signs in your home or commercial building:
Some of the most common causes of problems with sewer lines include:
Roots: Root systems always reach for a fresh source of water regardless of where it’s found. In some cases, this means bursting through your sewer line.
Temperature Spikes: If the temperature suddenly spikes, it will cause the ground to shift. If this happens, the sewer line could potentially disconnect and require emergency sewer line repair.
Outdated Pipelines: Over the years, your sewer line will experience extensive wear and tear. It’s a good idea to invest in a new sewer line installation when your line becomes damaged.
Common plumbing problems homeowners experience during the winter involve frozen pipes. Most frozen water pipes occur in areas where the pipes are not properly insulated, such as the garage, crawl spaces and non-insulated outside walls. This can cost thousands of dollars in damage if not caught in time. Fortunately, your 1-Tom-Plumber team is ready to assist in frozen pipe emergencies.
How do you know if you have this problem?
One of the most effective ways to determine if you have frozen pipes is to turn on the hot and cold water at the sink and note the water flow. If there is little or no water flowing from the tap, chances are the pipes are frozen. If you suspect this, shut off the main water valve to reduce pressure on the pipes, then give us a call immediately.
What can we do to help?
Using an electric pipe thawer is one of the ways we can quickly and safely repair frozen pipes and get them working like new again. With these machines, only a thin layer of ice inside the pipe needs to be melted in order to allow sufficient water flow to resume. Depending on the amount of pipe that’s frozen, it can take anywhere from 10-30 minutes to get everything thawed out. For homes with older copper pipes, it may take as much as one hour before all is clear.
Not only will we help you repair frozen pipes but we will also advise you on ways to prevent this problem from happening again.
By following these tips, you can avoid the mess and inconvenience of frozen pipes. If you do find yourself with a burst pipe due to freezing temperatures, call us right away and we will dispatch a plumber to your property ASAP.
A burst pipe is a common plumbing emergency. It can lead to significant water damage in a short amount of time. If you are dealing with a burst pipe in your home, contact us immediately. The longer the leak is allowed to occur, the more you will face in repair costs.
While fixing your plumbing problem should be left to the professionals, there are steps you can take before your plumber arrives. These initial steps help mitigate further damage.
Flipping a switch in your kitchen and discovering that your garbage disposal isn’t working can put a damper on your kitchen cleanup efforts. Before you buy a replacement, keep in mind that your garbage disposal can be repaired in many cases.
Several common problems can prevent disposals from working properly. Rust, build-up, and hard objects can easily jam a propeller, which prevents the disposal from grinding food scraps. A worn blade can contribute to inefficient food disposal. Improper or corroded motor wiring can cause disposer failure and can even cause electric shock hazards.
