Water Pipes Diagnosis & Repair

If you have blocked pipes, leaky water pipes, corroded or frozen pipes call our plumbing experts today to discuss how we can help you diagnose the problem and fix your pipes.

Due to extensive usage in your daily routine, your plumbing system is bound to develop some problems over the years. Failure to solve plumbing woes immediately will often lead to further inconveniences. It is important that you consult a professional plumber for accurate diagnosis and possible repair.

Regardless of how well you take care of your home, a plumbing emergency is bound to occur once in a while. While you may successfully apply do-it-yourself methods to some minor issues, major plumbing repairs like pipe repair are better off being handled by a professional.

Here are some of the most common piping emergencies that may require a professional plumber.

Blocked Pipes

At one time or the other, every homeowner will have some experience with some form of blockage within their homes. Foreign objects or debris often cause this. The debris may include fatty substances that are washed down the sinks, subsequently sticking to the inside of the pipes, soaps, hair and food buildup that get caught between the drain pipe and the pipes flowing underneath. Moreover, pipe blockage is caused by tree roots of overgrown plants as they penetrate deeper in search of moisture. In addition, certain vegetation such as moss may develop inside the water pipes, reducing the performance of your plumbing system.

Leaky Pipes

Contrary to the popular belief that a leaky spigot / faucet is no big deal, even a minor leak can waste thousands of gallons of water. Leaks will often develop due to a number of reasons, such as rusting and changes in the acidity level of the water. The most common indicative signs of leakage are suspiciously low water pressure, unusually high water usage and water heating issues. Leaking pipes can potentially cause multiple problems in your home. The moisture emanating from the pipes provides a conducive breeding environment for pests, such as cockroaches and rodents. In addition to encouraging pest infestation, leaky pipes also lead to elevated water bills, while endangering the overall integrity of your property. For instance, leaks may cause flooding to your basement, rotting to your wooden structures and corrosion of metals.

Corroded pipes

Old galvanized pipes can corrode from the inside, leading to the production of brown or rusty water from the faucets. You may also experience odd smell or taste in the water, low water pressure and leaking pipes.

Frozen pipes

Frozen pipes are a common problem in homes especially when the temperatures drop during the winter months. In addition to the inconvenience occasioned by the lack of running water from your faucets, frozen pipes can cause major problems such as pipe bursting. This is because frozen water in pipes creates pressure in the pipes causing them to explode. If the pipe has not split yet, this can be corrected by using hot water bottles to thaw the pipe out gently.

Bursting pipes

This is one of the biggest problem plumbers deal with especially because huge amounts of water tend to come out of the pipes rapidly, potentially posing a damage risk to your home. Once this happens, you should turn off the valve, shutting off the water supply to the fixtures, and contact a technician.

Rusty Shut-off Valves

These valves often go unused for years and can become rusted, corroded or just completely non-functional. This isn’t a problem, until you need them the most. When something is leaking or spraying water into your cabinet or living space, having local shutoff valves can prevent major damage. Most homes have a main shutoff valve where the water enters the house, but the time it takes to get from the second floor bathroom to the basement shutoff valves can be the difference between a towel and a homeowner’s insurance claim. Local shutoff valves allow you the ability to cut the water where you need it, when you need it.

Sewer Pipes Repair & Inspection

Sewer pipes generally go unnoticed until they cause major messes and produce foul odors. Because a lot can go wrong with sewer pipes, putting off the repair of a seemingly small issue — like slow drainage — can lead to major problems and costly repairs in the future. Call our plumbing experts today to discuss how we can help you diagnose the problem and fix your pipes.

Tree Root Removal

One of the most common causes of sewer line problems is tree root infiltration, particularly in older homes. Tree roots are sometimes attracted to sewer pipes that have a crack or loose joint from which vapor produced by warm water escapes. When a root gets inside the sewer line, it will fill it with small hair-like roots that will eventually cause a clog as they grow and trap toilet paper, grease and other debris. When a tree root is the source of your plumbing headaches, a plumber may use a small camera to find the source of the problem and inspect the damage. Based on the information discovered, the professional will remove the problematic root and fix the affected pipe.

Grease Buildup

Hot fat and oil solidify when they cool. The grease that goes through sewer pipes coat the inside of the lines. As the fat builds up in the lines, water drainage slows. If enough grease accumulates in a sewer pipe, it can lead to a blockage, flooding or raw sewage backups.

Corroded pipes

Sewer lines are exposed to a variety of debris and chemicals that cause them to corrode with time. This corrosion leads to slower drainage when it causes the affected pipe to crack and leak. With time, a corroded pipe will collapse. Using special equipment, a plumber will locate cracks and replace damaged sewer lines. We also offer maintenance services that help prevent corrosion.

Clogs

Objects like toilet paper, paper towels, hair and toys can clog sewer lines. Bellied sewer pipes that create a valley in which waste and paper settle and build up can also cause blockages. Your plumber will use a camera to determine the cause and source of a clog. After clearing the blockage, he’ll inspect the condition of the pipe and make any necessary repairs.
