Plumbing Repair

As homeowners, we often take the intricate network of pipes running through our homes for granted, until something goes wrong, that is. From leaky taps to blocked drains, plumbing issues are a common problem that many people face. At Rooter Man Plumbing, we can help you overcome these issues fast with help from our reliable service team. From routine inspections to emergency pipe repair, we’ve got you covered. 

Common Plumbing Issues and How to Identify Them

The first step in addressing plumbing problems is recognizing when you have one. While some issues are obvious, others might require a closer look. Let’s break down some of the most common problems and how you can identify them:

  • Leaky Faucets: This is perhaps the most common issue. A persistent drip can also lead to a substantial waste of water over time. Usually, the culprit is a worn-out washer or O-ring that needs replacing.
  • Slow Drains: If water is taking longer than usual to drain, it could signal a blockage. In kitchen sinks, this often occurs due to accumulated food particles, while in bathrooms, it's usually hair and soap scum causing the problem.
  • Running Toilet: A running toilet is often caused by a faulty flapper valve, which controls the water that passes from the tank to the bowl.
  • Low Water Pressure: If water trickles out of the tap instead of flowing, there might be a problem with your shower head or faucet. This issue can sometimes be a symptom of bigger underlying problems, such as pipe corrosion.

 

Handling Emergency Plumbing Repairs

When plumbing emergencies occur, a swift response is essential. From burst pipes to sewage backups, knowing what to do in an emergency can be the difference between a small hiccup and a major disaster. Here are some steps you can take:

  • Turn Off the Water: The first step in any emergency should always be to turn off the water to prevent further damage. Know the location of your main water valve and how to use it.
  • Call a Professional Plumber: Once you’ve stopped the immediate problem, call a professional plumber to fix the issue permanently.
  • Remove Excess Water: If it is safe and possible to do so, remove any excess water to prevent damage to your furniture and belongings.
  • Document the Damage: If you plan to file an insurance claim, take pictures of the damage for evidence.

The Value of Regular Plumbing Inspections

Regular inspections of your plumbing system can prevent minor issues from ballooning into major problems. Here's why you should consider scheduling regular inspections:

  • Longevity: Regular inspections can extend the life of your plumbing system by ensuring that everything operates smoothly and efficiently.
  • Cost-Efficiency: By spotting and fixing minor issues early on, you can avoid the high costs associated with major repairs down the line.
  • Peace of Mind: Knowing that your plumbing system is in good condition allows you to relax and enjoy your home without worrying about impending disasters.

Preventive Measures to Avoid Major Plumbing Repairs

You can take steps to prevent major plumbing repairs from happening in the first place. Here are some tips that might help:

  • Watch What You Flush: Only flush toilet paper and waste down the toilet. Other materials can cause clogs and major headaches.
  • Be Careful with What Goes Down the Drain: Use a strainer to catch food particles and avoid pouring fats and oils down the drain.
  • Insulate Your Pipes: To prevent your pipes from freezing in winter, make sure to insulate them properly.
  • Regular Maintenance: Perform regular maintenance, like cleaning your drains and checking for leaks, to prevent bigger issues from developing.

We had a busted drain pipe. And we found Rooter Man Plumbing when we were searching for local plumbers in the area. We were having trouble finding someone to come out and fix it. I called the Rooter Man and they showed up the same day and fixed it in less than an hour. Very quick and reliable. Kept their number just in case if we need a plumber later.

Rory got here fairly quick for dinner time on a Saturday night. His actions were even faster for a complicated problem that had waste water backing into a first floor tub. Since it wasn’t our first time, he scoped the problem and gave us an assessment of the necessity for future repairs. Rory is very professional and honest. An Expert Plumber.
