Do Not Delay Requesting Help for Pipe Repair
The longer you let your pipes stay in a broken or clogged-up state, the worse the problem can get.
For example, if a pipe becomes frozen, you cannot run water through it and you run the risk of the pipe breaking. This could cause tremendous damage to your home and surrounding property.
It would be best to call for pipe repair sooner than later in order to help prevent a small problem from becoming a big one.
Common Pipe Problems
As a reputable pipe repair company, we regularly get calls from customers who have issues with their pipes. The most typical calls to fix broken pipes have to do with the following conditions:
Backed-up sewer: Ideally, homeowners should call professionals to clean the sewer pipe every five years (or more frequently, if warranted). Without regular maintenance, it’s easier for the sewer to back up.
Frozen and/or burst pipes: A common experience during winter, pipes will often burst if they haven’t been insulated. This can also happen if homeowners don’t use the system during the winter. Water can freeze inside the pipes, eventually causing them to burst.
Garbage disposal backup: If you use the garbage disposal to get rid of greasy or starchy foods instead of tossing them in the trash per the manufacturer’s instructions, the disposal can back up and require professional attention.
Blocked pipes: Your home’s pipes can get clogged for many reasons, especially if they do not have drain filters to keep debris from accumulating.
Why Do Household Pipes Burst?
You’re minding your own business at home when suddenly you discover that a pipe has burst. As you clean up the water, survey for damage and call the experts at ARS/Rescue Rooter for pipe repair, you would be right to wonder exactly why the pipes burst in the first place.
Extreme water pressure is one major culprit behind bursting pipes. If the pressure is higher than the pipe’s ability to carry water, it can cause it to burst.
Another reason a pipe may burst could be “water hammer.” Water hammer is a condition that can occur if the pipes aren’t properly mounted and secured in the home. You can tell this is occurring if you hear a hammering or clanging noise from your floor or wall. Excessive movement could cause the pipe joints to weaken. If a joint fails, the water will escape.
Corrosion or Rust
In older homes, the problem of corrosion is a distinct possibility. You may need to call our experts to repair the pipes if they are failing due to corrosion. If the water’s pH becomes imbalanced, the pipes can start to degrade, sometimes to the point of failure.
Additionally, if your utility company provides hard water, it can erode the pipes’ galvanized coating. This may result in rusty pipes. As pipes rust, the diameter of the pipe may narrow, constricting the flow of water. It’s a common condition that could lead to burst pipes.
Cold weather can also cause pipes to burst. As water freezes, it expands. With no room left inside the pipe during a bitter winter freeze, the pipes could expand and eventually rupture under the terrific pressure.
What Are the Benefits of Hiring Our Professional Plumber for Pipe Repair?
We know that many homeowners take pride in doing repairs by themselves whenever feasible.
That attitude is certainly worthy of respect. However, if you lack the knowledge and skills to do the job correctly and in a reasonable amount of time, you could be sorry.
When it comes to pipe repair, it’s usually a job that’s best left to the professionals, such as the team at ARS/Rescue Rooter. For clarity, here are the main benefits of hiring a professional pipe repair business:
If you are not a certified, trained plumber with experience in the business, you may not be aware of the safety issues that come with pipe repair.
If you choose to tackle this project on your own, you run the risk of lead exposure and encountering other hazardous materials. There is also the potential for electrocution when working with pipes near electrical wiring.
The Proper Tools
If you’re not a professional plumber, chances are good that you don’t have all the required tools and equipment needed to do the job.
However, a professional pipe repair technician from ARS/Rescue Rooter carries all necessary items to do whatever job needs to be done. There should be no waiting to finish work while you head to the hardware store for supplies mid-way through the job.
No Time for Amateurs
Doing the job yourself or allowing an amateur friend to do a quick and cheap plumbing repair job can be a recipe for disaster. To make matters worse, you might have to pay again for someone to clean up after the mistakes done during the initial effort.
Benefit of Expert Knowledge
You may not be prepared for the full extent of the pipe problem in your home. This is why it’s crucial to call an expert who has the knowledge and background to figure out what the problem is and the best way to fix the pipes.
If your pipes are leaking now or have already burst, threatening the home with water damage or potential flooding, there’s no time to waste.
When it comes to pipe repair, it’s best to rely on the experts at ARS/Rescue Rooter. We can quickly assess the situation and come up with a solid plan to repair the problem. An amateur may not know what to do and may need to spend precious time trying to “learn on the job.”
