A leak in the pipes can do a lot of damage before anyone notices it. In fact, many leaks aren’t realized until the damage has spread and becomes visible. For instance, a cracked pipe inside a wall could drip water that is quickly absorbed by the wood and only slowly soaks into the drywall. Even worse, the leak could be hidden behind cabinets, shelves or paneling allowing the growth of mold and mildew as well. Luckily, an experienced plumber in Weatherford TX has the skills and tools to locate these issues. In the case of hidden leaks, the contractor can make use of acoustic samplers and discover where the water is leaking.
Locating the source of the leak could also reduce the amount of demolition required for repairs.Plumbers handle a number of jobs such as running gas pipes, but one of the most common is eliminating clogs. Drain clogs tend to occur when hair, food or other debris builds up in the pipe traps. These traps are in place to prevent sewer gasses from entering the home, and they function by holding a bit of water in the crook of a pipe. Unfortunately, the same area that holds the water can also collect debris and cause the pipes to clog. Plunging the drain may help, but the best option is to have a plumber in Weatherford TX remove the trap and clean it properly.
This avoids the chance of damage that the pressure of plunging might cause.Another area that tends to clog is the main sewage pipe. This is the line that connects the home to the municipal sewer system or local septic tank. Sewage pipes can clog when waste accumulates, roots block them, or they suffer damage. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to determine the problem without examining the pipes.
This is done by inspecting the pipes with a video camera and a long flexible cable. Once the problem is found, the plumber can determine the best course of action. Simple clogs and many root problems are eliminated by either a rooting tool or the use of water jetting. Repairs may be complete pipe replacement or the use of a sleeve. The sleeve method is also known as a trenchless repair. Contact us and eliminate those plumbing concerns.
