Causes of a blocked drain
Blocked pipes and clogged drains may begin as minor problems but can escalate into significant issues. A clogged drain can cause slow water drainage, flooding, sewage backup, and corrosion leading to expensive repairs. The leading causes of clogged drains include:
- Food particles
- Tree roots
- Mineral build-up
What a gas plumber fixes
The techniques, and principles used in water plumbing, are like those of gas plumbing. A professional plumber in Knoxfield can install, maintain, and repair water heaters, fireplaces, HVAC systems, and outdoor grills. If you suspect your gas line is leaking, do not wait until it causes disaster. We provide thorough gas inspections while keeping you ahead of repairs for your peace of mind.
Causes of a burst hot water system
You hot water system can burst because of the following reasons:
Hard water contains minerals that may build up and settle at the bottom of your water heater’s tank. The sediment forces the burner to work for an extended period to heat water, causing the tank to wear out faster. When you hear a popping sound in your water heater, it is time to repair the system.
Manufacturers make water heater tanks using steel. The material rusts when exposed to water. However, the system has an anode rod, which helps protect the system from rust. When the rod deteriorates, the tank rusts, leading to leakages.
What to do if you have a burst pipe
Immediately you notice a burst pipe in your property, act fast to avoid damage to your property. Turn off the main water supply to your home and identify the source of the leak. Once you get the leaking pipe or faulty tap, place a container below it to collect water. Open your faucet to drain the remaining water in the plumbing line. Call a reputable plumber in Knoxfield to come and fix the leak. Before the technicians get to your property, do not let water sip into your wooden floor or carpet. Remove the water and open all windows and doors to enhance air circulation, which speeds up the drying process.
Carbon monoxide testing
We can also perform a carbon monoxide test in your home. Carbon Monoxide is hazardous since it is not visible. That is why you need to hire a licensed plumber in Knoxfield to test it for you.
When to use a drain camera and its purposes
A drain camera is an essential device that is flexible and can fit in any drain. The camera can travel the bends and curves in the drain line efficiently, giving the plumber a clear picture of the drain system. Our plumbers use drain cameras to check for the root cause of the clogged drain. Using the equipment, we can pinpoint the nature and location of the problem. With that, we can determine the best techniques and equipment to unclog the drain. The camera also helps us to spot raising problems that can cause significant damage.
How to fix a leaking tap
Begin by turning off the main water supply to avoid flooding. Get tools such as a flathead screwdriver and pliers ready. Remove the faucet handles beginning with the decorative caps. After removing the tap’s handles, you can see the inner valve stem. Please remove it from the faucet’s body and scrutinize it. If you spot any damaged parts, replace them as well. Reassemble the faucet back together carefully, turn the water supply back, and check if there are any leaks. If the faucet continues to leak, contact a reliable plumber for repairs.
