Prevent a Plumbing Emergency With Preventive Measures
It may be cliche, but it is true – an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. If there are signs of failure in your main plumbing units, give us a call before it becomes a plumbing emergency.
Service or Replace Your Grease Trap
The grease trap in your plumbing system serves an important function. It protects against grease, as well as other insoluble fats and oil from making their way into the septic system. Over time, these compounds will accumulate inside the interceptor. There will come a point where it is fully saturated, and no longer able to do its job. If this problem is not taken care of, the fats and grease will quickly accumulate inside your septic system. Prevent a plumbing emergency by having us periodically service your grease trap, or replace it if necessary.
Clear Clogs from Your Drain Lines
Sooner or later, it happens in every household. It is none other than the annoying clogged drain line. Many clogs happen slowly, some so much so that it is not noticeable at first. Your sink or bathtub will just begin to drain slower than it did last time. There are others that happen as a result of a mishap such as too much toilet paper, or something getting down the sink that should not have. Some of these clogs can be taken care of by a homeowner. However, there are others that require the attention of professionals. If you are unable to clear a clog using simple measures, do not attempt more extreme methods yourself, as doing so can result in more damage. Your plumbing system is sensitive to force, and can be severely affected by things such as excess pressure. If you do not know what you are doing, call us to prevent a plumbing emergency.
Replace Your Hot Water Heater
Most water heaters do not need a lot of upkeep during their life, which on average is 10 to 12 years. Fortunately for home and business owners, it will most often give advance warning that it is time to replace it before it stops working completely. Look for one or more of these signs. You may notice that your hot water is not as hot as it used to be. Some of them will also develop leaks near the end of their life, resulting in a small puddle of water near its bottom. Or, its overall performance may fluctuate from satisfactory to unsatisfactory throughout the day.
