Emergency Plumbing Service
Plumbing emergencies can strike at any time, usually when it is most inconvenient. That is why we will always have highly trained technicians on standby 24/7. One of our most common callouts is to repair burst pipes and leaks. Water is a very destructive force and can quickly cause a great deal of damage to your home and belongings.
So the sooner you can turn off the main water shutoff valve the better. If you do not know where it is, we suggest that you find out now. The longer you delay shutting off the gushing water the more damage will occur to your home. After you have turned the water supply off, another good idea is to turn off the electricity to avoid any risk of electrocution.
Leak Detection and Repair
Leaks are not always easy to detect, the pipework is often hidden under floors and behind walls. The first signs of a leak are often an unexpected increase in your water bills or the smell of mold under carpets or inside sink cabinets. One way to check for a leak is to turn off all your taps and water appliances, and then look at your water meter. If it is still running, you have a leak somewhere.
If you suspect that you have a leak, you should call Peach Plumbing & Drain serving the area! It is best to sort a small leak now than to wait until the pipe bursts and you must go through the pain of cleaning up a more expensive mess and repair.
If you have noticed that the water in your sink is taking longer and longer to drain away, or that the water in your shower tray is overlapping your feet, then you probably have a clog in your pipework.
People tend to pour anything down a sink. Most clogs are caused by grease, food, coffee grinds, and other materials binding to the walls of drain pipes. As they start to grow, the clogs at first will slowly restrict the flow of water. If no action is taken to remove the clogs, they can completely block the pipes. If you live in an area with hard water, the minerals dissolved in the water can cause insoluble lumps of scale to form and add to the problem.
Professional drain cleaning is one of the many plumbing services that Peach Plumbing & Drain offers. Our drain cleaning service is the safest way to remove clogs without damaging your pipes. Pouring chemicals down the sink may remove some small clogs but can corrode older pipework and joints and lead to massive leaks.
Having clogs forming in your pipework is bad enough, but what if the water in your sink refuses to drain away? If there is discolored water gurgling back into the sink together with the foul smell of sewage, you could have a problem with the sewer line. It may be blocked or damaged making it so the wastewater has no place to go but back into your home. This is unsanitary and will get worse as time continues on. That is why you need an experienced plumbing service to help as soon as possible.
One of our technicians can see inside the pipe with a camera on the end of flexible tubing, and this allows them to see exactly what is wrong and provide you with the solution for a lasting repair at an affordable price.
Like the sink, we tend to put anything down the toilet. The only items that you should put down a toilet are water, toilet paper, and human waste, anything else may cause clogs. This might come as a surprise, as many of us still flush tissues, wet wipes, and cigarette butts down the toilet. These items are not designed to dissolve easily in water, and if not flushed away properly are often the cause of a blockage.
Another piece of advice is to stop repeatedly flushing the toilet to clear any blockage. All that is likely to happen is that you cause the toilet to overflow. If this happens you should call us straight away, so one of our technicians can safely clean up the mess. We also advise against pouring too many strong chemicals down the toilet to remove the blockage, again these chemicals could corrode older pipework and joints and cause leaks.
Water Heater Repair
Another important plumbing service that we offer is water heater repair. Although they are usually very dependable, water heaters can break down too. We at Peach Plumbing and Drain suggest that you have your water heater regularly serviced. This will ensure that it is running as efficiently as possible and reducing your energy bills.
It will also give you peace of mind knowing that it is running safely and less likely to break down. As the cost of a repair can run into hundreds of dollars, you can see that a regular service is a prudent choice.
