Emergency plumbing is any leak or back up that happens without warning. Emergency plumbing is exactly what nobody wants to deal with, but happens every day. Emergency plumbing calls are usually the result of aging plumbing systems. It should be no surprise that you need to update your plumbing if your house is more than 20 years old.
The causes of plumbing system failures are many. Everything from the building settling, to the condition of the water flowing through the lines. Plumbing drainage lines are subject to the same problems, settling can cause bellies in the lines, which in turn leads to clogged plumbing drain lines.
The ability to repair all the minor plumbing leaks and clogged plumbing drains is usually left to licensed plumbers. Some of the smaller repairs can be tackled by homeowners. The repairs can vary greatly in difficulty and due to the damaging nature of water plumbing leaks, most should be completed by licensed plumbers.
The only true way of preventing damage due to plumbing leaks or plumbing backups is to be aware of the age of your plumbing system and take steps such as re-plumbing the water lines before leaks begin. To maintain your drain system you should be aware of the age and materials used. If cast iron drain lines were installed 30 years ago you should know that they deteriorate at the bottom of the plumbing pipe.
A whole house re-pipe is when you replace all of the water lines in the house from the point of entry to every fixture in the house that requires water. Whole house re-pipes require an inspection from the local municipality. The plumbing inspector will check all water lines to ensure everything is in correct working order. The Plumbing inspector will also look at the workmanship of the job to ensure the homeowner is getting a quality job done.
There are several reasons to perform a whole house re-pipe, in the south where homes have no basements the plumbing water lines are run below the concrete slab of the home. When these plumbing lines develop a plumbing leak below the concrete it is called a slab leak. Slab leaks are a common problem that is not easily solvable. The first issue is finding the plumbing leak, there are several ways to find the plumbing leak the most common is by using leak detection equipment to listen through the concrete slab to pinpoint its location. Once the plumbing leak is located you must break open the concrete using a jack hammer to expose the leaking plumbing line. At which time the plumber will repair the leak and re-pour the concrete. While this is an effective method for quickly stopping the plumbing leak it is not a long term solution. The collateral costs associated with this method depending on the location can be quite high. If the leak is below a hardwood floor, under the bathroom or the kitchen cabinets. Many times a whole house re-pipe is not only more cost effective but a true long-term solution to an aging plumbing system.
Emergency water heater repairs are mostly the electrical portions of the Water Heater unit. When your not getting enough hot water it generally indicates a malfunction of one of the water heater components. If the tank itself is leaking, it is time for a new water heater.
It is important to realize that tank type water heaters never stop working. The components such as thermostats and elements are always turning off and on to regulate the temperature in the tank. Aging of the water heater components is normally what causes the water heater failures.
Repairing the water heater should be done by licensed plumbing contractors. It is important to know that most water heaters have 240 volts powering them. This presents significant danger to unqualified technicians. The water heater thermostats and elements can be replaced to restore proper function.
Although it is almost impossible to prevent water heater component failures and eventually water heater tank leaks there is one thing that homeowners can do to optimize the performance. Flushing your water heater will remove unwanted sediment from building up on the bottom. Over the course of several years sediment can build quite thick. This lowers the amount of usable space inside the water heater.
Leak detection is the process of finding leaks in your home that is not obvious. There are many different types of leaks so there are several different types of leak detection.
There are many different reasons that leaks happen from the corrosive nature of water and chemicals to the settling of your house. The aging of the plumbing system and its eventual failure leads to a need to find the problem area.
There are two major types of leak detection when it comes to finding water leaks in your home. The first being highly sensitive leak detection listening equipment and the second being a leak detection infrared camera. The leak detection listening equipment allows a trained technician to locate leaks under concrete slabs on pressurized water lines. The plumbing lines can be under your home or around your pool. The second method would be the leak detection infrared camera. This camera allows the user to see differences in temperature. Being that most plumbing leaks are either colder of hotter than the ambient temperature of everything around it water in the wall will show as a different temperature.
