Is your sink taking forever to drain away, is the same happening in your shower tray with water overlapping your feet while you shower? You probably have a clog somewhere in your drain line. Clogs are formed when pieces of food, grease, hair, toothpaste, and other materials stick to the insides of the drain line.
As more materials like this are added, the clog will grow and begin to restrict the flow of wastewater through the pipes. If no action is taken the pipe will be completely blocked and you will begin to see standing water in your sink, bathtub, or shower tray.
Drain cleaners are often poured down a sink to remove the clog, while this may work for smaller clogs, hardened and aged clogs will be harder to remove. In a home with older pipework, constant use of chemicals will only cause corrosion of the pipes and joints resulting in more leaks.
The safest way to remove clogs without damage to the pipes is to have a professional drain cleaning service from bluefrog Plumbing + Drain of Northeast Dallas. To avoid clogs in the future is to stop pouring food and trash down the sink, put them in your compost bin or garbage can instead.
Detection and Repair of Leaks
Not all leaks are easy to detect. Often the first sign of a leak is a larger than expected water bill. There may also be patches of damp on the wall, floor, and ceiling causing stains in conjunction with a moldy smell. If you think that you have a leak, the surest way to find out is to turn off all your water appliances and make sure all the taps are turned off. If the water meter is still running, then you have a leak somewhere in your home.
Now is the time to call us, because the longer you wait, the more water damage will occur, and it will be more expensive to repair the longer you wait.
A sump pump is a small but vital piece of machinery, especially for those living in low-lying areas prone to flooding. The pump is situated in a pit dug in the floor of your basement. Any surplus water that collects in your basement will be pumped outside and away from your home.
They need to be tested periodically by pouring a bucket of water into the pit. If the pump starts automatically and the water drains away rapidly then all is well. If not, then call us and we can send one of our expert technicians around to investigate for a free inspection. Do not wait until there are heavy rain forecasts, test your sump pump today and make a regular habit of testing the sump pump. bluefrog offers a subscription service that is great value and affordable and will review all your systems to make certain there are not any nasty plumbing disasters waiting to raid your bank account.
Installation and Repair of Water Heaters
Another vital piece of machinery in your home is the water heater. The two main types of water heaters are the traditional or tank water heater and the tankless one. As its name suggests the tank water heater consists of a large external tank, that contains a large volume of water that is constantly heated.
The advantage of such a heater is that there is a large amount of hot water always on hand. The disadvantage is that you use up a lot of energy in always having it constantly heated.
A tankless water heater has no large external tank, and it is a smaller, more compact unit. It only supplies hot water on demand when you need it. The unit is more expensive to buy and install than a tank heater, but the running costs are lower as there is no need to have a large volume of water continuously heated.
We are experts at this type of plumbing repair. It is important to select the right size heater for your needs. An underpowered unit will not be able to supply all the hot water you need at any one time. It may even shut down if too much demand is placed on it. Once you have a new water heater, Our experts strongly recommend that you have it regularly maintained, to ensure your appliances are safe and operating efficiently.
