Sewer Line Blockages – Plumbing Services

Your sewer lines may need to be replaced at some point in time. If they are old – twenty years or more – the wear and tear may be just too much. Or, roots may have worked their way through the joints of the sewer pipes where they are no longer airtight. If you have had a backup or numerous backups, then you must have your sewer lines replaced. We can do a camera inspection to determine what the best solution is for your particular services -sewer line blockages

To minimize digging in your yard and driveway, our plumbers may recommend a pipe bursting method known as trenchless sewer replacement and pipelining. This can be done quickly and easily, with almost no disruption to your routine.

Two small holes are dug at each end of the section that needs to be replaced A steel cable, connected to a high-pressure hydraulic pump pulls the cutting head of the high-density polyethylene pipe, and your sewer lines are replaced. The existing pipe is destroyed.

Having a septic tank means that you must take some extra precautions in maintaining it properly. Your septic tank will need to be pumped out every 3 or 4 years, but you can maintain it during that time so it stays in good working order and does not clog prematurely. Your septic tank is likely to get clogged if you flush anything down your toilet besides toilet paper or facial tissue. Anything else, including dental floss, paper towels, cotton swabs, feminine products, diapers, or the like will cause huge problems very quickly.

Washing too many loads of laundry during one day will overwhelm your septic tank and cause your system to slow down. Space out your laundry loads to avoid clogs. No more than two loads each day is optimum. Also, be careful what you put down the drain in your kitchen or bathroom. Oils and fats create a sludge that will clog your septic tank. Dispose of these in other containers to prevent sludge and scum from forming in your septic system. This is also good for the environment. Also, avoid using solvents or chemicals.

Plumbing Services – Low Water Pressure

Plumbing Services – Low Water Pressure

Most people refer to this problem as “low water pressure”. This very common problem can be caused by a number of reasons. One of the most common reasons is old galvanized water piping throughout your house or an old galvanized or lead water service entering your home from the city supply.

Your pipes will be thoroughly cleaned and then coated with our epoxy pipe lining making them better than new. This pull-in-place pipe renewal repairs pin leaks, and even missing pipe.

Unlike copper pipes that only last about 3 to 12 years without getting a leak, in many cases epoxy repiping has a warranty of over 80 years. When you need a reliable plumber to fix a major pipe disaster in the middle of the night, give us a call.

Benefits of copper pipe installation

Copper piping is naturally antimicrobial and thus cannot support the growth of bacteria, fungi or viruses. Copper piping is durable and flexible, making it easy to install. It offers several other advantages as well. Copper piping resists corrosion and can be used in outdoor applications. It is also weather-resistant and safer in natural disasters than other types of piping. But copper piping is more expensive than PEX or PVC piping because copper is a precious metal. Furthermore, copper is resistant to burning and will not release toxic gases in a fire. Copper pipes are slightly elastic, making them ideal for earthquakes because they don’t snap. Copper piping is also recyclable, making it a more sound environmental choice. Installing copper pipes in your home makes your plumbing system more efficient. Copper is a good conductor of heat, and as such, your hot water lines remain hot, and your showerheads and faucets can deliver even hotter showers. There are two types of copper piping used in the plumbing industry, Type “L” and type “M.” Of the two, type “L” is thicker and more resilient, and your best choice for longevity and quality.

PEX repair
Developed in the 1960s, PEX has been used in Europe for decades but was only introduced to the U.S. in the 1980s. Since the 1980s, many plumbers and water systems managers have chosen to use cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) piping to provide water throughout homes and properties. PEX tubing has largely replaced polyvinyl chloride (PVC) piping as one of the most popular tools of the trade thanks to its superior durability and versatility. We were one of the best plumbing companies to embrace the many uses of PEX piping and offer our services for maintenance and problem-solving specialty for plumbing systems of this sort. We can help you update your system by repairing your existing PEX system or installing a new one. Our plumbers are friendly, professional, reliable and always get the job done right. We are highly trained and have experience with all types of pipe repair.

Benefits of PEX Pipe installation
PEX is less expensive than copper and doesn’t transfer heat as readily, therefore conserving energy. The manufacturer also provides a 15-25 year guarantee!

PEX piping is both durable and flexible (and quieter) than other pipe materials.

PEX piping works well in hard to access areas and curves easily, leaving fewer areas for potential leaks. Copper piping requires joints to go around curves. PEX is very flexible, which allows for a faster installation. Also, it will minimize excavation to your property, as less access points will need to be dug in order to put it in. It is impossible for water, acid, or chemicals to corrode PEX piping. Colder weather can be highly destructive to certain types of pipes, as water in the pipes will freeze putting intense pressure on the system. PEX pipes can expand up to three times their normal size. Whether you’re considering PEX or copper piping for your next home project, we are your source for professional piping installation.

Frozen pipes
If your water pipes have frozen from the extreme cold temperatures you should call us and we will fix it all!

If your pipes are not properly insulated and covered, the frozen water can create major pressure and ultimately lead to cracks, leaks, or bursts. We’ll act quickly to diagnose the problem and thaw your pipes before they burst, preventing thousands of dollars in water damage!

We have the experience to identify the source of your frozen pipe, limit further damage, fix the problem area and insulate the pipe to prevent future problems. Water sprinkler lines, outdoor hoses, plumbing in unheated interiors, such as in the basement, garage, etc., outdoor pipes with no insulation are the most vulnerable to freezing. If you have frozen pipes, first of all, you will need to shut off the water main leading into the structure to reduce pressure on frozen pipes and minimize flooding if the pipes burst. Then use a hairdryer to thaw the ice blockage if the frozen pipe is exposed and visible.

If frozen pipes are not visible call us and we will help you! If you notice slower water flow and expect frozen pipes, you should call our plumber immediately. Typically, issues like this can be resolved before any damage occurs.

Garbage Disposal Service – Installation

Garbage Disposal

A garbage disposal is really a helpful appliance that can certainly make life a bit simpler and easier. When not adequately looked after it will swiftly break down, obstruct and slow down the drain pipes which can result in a variety of expensive drain and plumbing problems.garbage disposal

Stopped up pipes are a serious hassle and waste disposal repair service may be a really expensive proposition. Luckily with some quick upkeep on a regular basis, problematic disposal dilemmas can be prevented. We have supplied a range of waste disposal dos and don’ts in order to get the best life from your very own device and keep it running nicely.

A Hassle-Free Disposal Creates a Hassle-Free Kitchen

Grinding ice to completely clean disposal is actually a reliable and inexpensive tactic and is also approved by local plumbers. This process will likewise touch up the cutting blades and loosen up built-up grease. Very easily place a handful of cubes in the drain and run the disposal until dissolved. When the ice cubes are chopped the ice chips will clean away at the hard to reach spots. Your disposal will run smoothly if you carry out this simple routine maintenance a couple of times each month.

Garbage Disposal Dos:

-Keep your garbage disposal clean. Run cold water for a couple of minutes with a little dish soap down the drain.

-Make a habit of running your disposal often. Frequent use prevents rust and corrosion and assures that all parts stay moving which prevents obstructions from accumulating.

-Turn the cold water on high when grinding up food waste. Why cold water? Because it will harden any grease or oils and prevent potential blockages in the trap.

-Grind small amounts of eggshells, small fruit pits, etc. These fine particles scrub the walls of the grinder chamber to keep it clean.

-Grind peelings from citrus fruits such as lemons or oranges to freshen up drain smells.

-Small items only Feed small amounts and small pieces.garbage disposal  repair

The No-Nos:

The Holy Grail of garbage disposals: Only biodegradable food. A garbage disposal is not a trash can; it’s for food scraps only. Anything other than food may cause blade and motor damage. If you aren’t sure, avoid putting it in the disposal.

-No glass, paper, or plastic.

-No combustibles.

-No cigarettes.

-Don’t pour grease, fat or oil in the drain or disposal. Grease will slowly accumulate and impede your garbage disposal’s grinding ability as well as clog drains.

-Don’t use hot water when grinding food waste. Hot water liquefies grease and oils and as waters cool solidifies and builds up, leading to clogged drains.

-No fibrous foods such as corn husks, onion skins, stalks of celery, and artichokes. Fibers from all of these might tangle and therefore jam the garbage disposal motor and result in blocked drains.

-Don’t turn off the motor or water up until grinding is achieved. When finished, shut down the waste disposal first and foremost. Let water continue to run for at least 15 seconds. Next switch off the water.

These tips are simple fixes for minor issues that you can do at home. If you try these solutions and they don’t work or if your problem seems to be getting worse, get in touch with us without delay. We have the tools and know-how to address almost every garbage disposal emergency. For more question about San Antonio plumbing issues, click on the link

Plumbing Services : Faucet Repair – Replacement

Faucets Repair – Replacement

Did you know that some faucets are cheaper to replace than repair? When we encounter a faucet repair we will consider the value of the repair and allow you to make the decision on whether to repair or replace.leaky faucet san antonio

What causes my faucet to drip?

Most faucets work with a rubber or composition washer that closes onto a metal washer seat. Over time, the washer hardens and cracks or simply gets worn down. This causes the faucet to leak. You can close the faucet tighter to stop the drip, but this is just temporary. In fact, you’re just increasing the internal damage to the washer and faucet and the problem is only going to get worse. Usually when a faucet drips, the problem has a relatively simple solution: the washers or other internal mechanisms need to be rebuilt or replaced. You can do this yourself or a plumbing technician can fix this easily and inexpensively. More information about our Plumbing Company in San Antonio here @
Is there a way to extend the life of my washers?
Yes. Turn your faucets on and off gently rather than forcefully. This will greatly reduce wear and tear.

My single handle faucet drips, but if I move the handle just a little bit it stops dripping. How come the washers are beginning to wear out
It’s time to rebuild or replace your faucet. This will normally take care of your problem. You can buy a faucet kit at your local hardware store. You may want to disassemble the faucet and bring the parts with you to match them against what the store has in stock.

Why does my sink faucet rattle?

The most common cause of rattling pipes is a loose washer in the faucet. To fix, remove the screen at the end of the faucet, then flush the washer out by turning on the water. If that doesn’t work, dismantle the faucet and replace the old washer.

I have a two handle kitchen faucet. When I turn on the cold water, it chatters loudly. What causes this?
This chattering sound probably means you have a loose faucet washer. To fix, turn your water off at the faucet and take your faucet apart from the top two handles and tighten the washers or replace them. Or call us and we can do it for you in a jiffy.

I keep replacing the washers in my two handle tub faucet, but they don’t last very long. When I take out the old washer it is chewed up. What causes this?
The brass seats on these old faucets are bad and have rough edges. Most seats are replaceable, but you will need a special wrench to get them out. This can sometimes be a problem. Make sure you use Teflon tape on the threads of the new seats so they seal correctly.

I hear a dripping noise but no water leaks. What could it be?

If you have copper pipes, it is probably the sound of the pipe expanding and contracting as it heats and cools. This is normal for copper pipes; there is little you can do about it except to make sure the pipe is not rubbing against anything. This is often seen when a water pipe has been installed through a wood floor. During the original construction, the hole for the pipe going between floors is drilled too small, so the pipe rubs against the wood as it expands and contracts. The noise it makes simulates a dripping sound. The usual remedy is to make a hole in the wall, locate the pipe and insulate and or enlarge the opening where it penetrates.

My faucets and showerheads have a white substance around the area where the water comes out. Is there anything I can do other than replace them?
This unsightly buildup is caused by mineral deposits. To remove them, pour a cup of vinegar into a plastic bag. Place the bag over the showerhead or faucets and hold it in place with a twist tie overnight. In the morning, remove the bag and gently scrub off the deposits with an old toothbrush.

Residential Plumbing Services – Repairs and Installations

Residential Plumbing Services – Repairs and Installations

Residential plumbing is one of the many crucial cornerstones of 21st-century society. Both entering and leaving our homes, water provides for cleaning, washing, drinking, cooking and removal of sewage and waste products. And on a daily basis, we in Western society take for granted this incredibly efficient system as often as we use it. That is until problems arise. And even when the best possible plumbing supplies are used, normal wear and tear of these man-made products will eventually lead to a need for repair.residential plumbing

The vast majority of the plumbing infrastructure in a residential unit involves getting water supply into the house and dispersing it throughout. Your kitchen and bathrooms will make up for the majority of water usage if not all of it. Certainly, you may have outdoor faucets and other water-based applications. But whether indoors or out, plumbing only works due to the pressure that builds up before a valve is opened. And the system can only work effectively as long as all the many individual parts remain in good repair and do their jobs accordingly.

Every residential plumbing application requires ongoing maintenance by the homeowner, and this is especially the case in those geographical locations which experience extreme weather. When pipes are not insulated properly and freeze, they can burst. When this happens, the solution moves from repair to replacement, and that can get expensive. The installation of secondary water heaters, pipe insulation and covering, and even housing for external pipes is crucial where temperatures plummet, and the initial cost is far outweighed by the money and frustration saved over time. Ongoing maintenance and repair of residential plumbing applications is one of the few areas where the homeowner needs to get involved.

Extensive residential plumbing repairs should always be carried out by licensed and reputable professionals, and in many cases, even the simplest of maintenance or repairs is mandated by your local housing codes. And as far as speed and efficiency go, Winter Haven professional plumbers have handled your particular repair or maintenance hundreds if not thousands of times and can be in and out quickly. There are situations where the replacement of a leaky pipe is better than the repair, and a trained professional can make the correct decision quickly. And while damage of a pipe or joint oftentimes means simply replacing that individual part, there are times when a more extensive replacement is needed. In the case of old plumbing pipes and infrastructure, adding new piping places more pressure on the old and worn joints and unions, thereby requiring the replacement of the entire system.

It would be wonderful if every domestic plumbing job simply required the replacement of a single faucet or pipe in a house or apartment. However, those times do arise when a pipe supplying an entire apartment complex or housing development bursts. In the most fortunate cases, the leak will be minor, and will not require water to be shut off. But usually, a burst main pipe requires at least a temporary cease in the water supply. In the best-case scenario, residents can be alerted in advance, but this is not always the case.

Emergency repairs obviously require a much higher labor rate, but regular residential plumbing jobs and services can usually be carried out with very short notice and a lower rate. When an emergency arises, however, this is not the time to be fumbling through the Yellow Pages or an Internet search engine. Do that research now, and program the number of multiple emergency plumbers into your cell phone. And if you own a smartphone, you can even store the actual website of a residential plumbing company. Usually, there is a “Tap to Call” button which allows for instant access, and a quick solution to your plumbing emergency. More on this website @

Plumbing Services – Crazy Plumbing Facts

Plumbing Services – Crazy Plumbing Facts

It is estimated that Americans will spend more than 3 years of their lives on the toilet. Most people with children report that they will actually use the bathroom as a way to escape their children. Plumbing is one of the most important aspects of your home. However, how much do we really know about it? Have you ever used the terms faucet or spigot interchangeably? At one time those terms were exclusively only used in their own separate areas of the country, with the North claiming faucet and the South claiming spigot. Here are some other ridiculous yet true facts when it comes to plumbing throughout history. Plumbing Services

Plumbing pipes were once made out of lead. It is estimated that the Egyptians used copper like we used today. However, the Romans and other societies went for the cheaper and easier lead option. This actually led to lead poisoning being on the leading causes of death in the Roman Empire. More Information on this website @ Canyon Hills Plumbing
Wooden pipes have been used but have long been forgotten. Have you ever wondered why wooden pipes were never used? Seattle first tried their sewage system by having wooden pipes lead down to the Pudgent Sound. This worked great until the tide came in and forced everything up and out of the toilets! Imagine waking up to that in the morning after a strong wave.

There two types of plungers! The first is your everyday toilet plunger that has a ring on the bottom to fit in to your toilet fixtures. The Second is a flat single ringed plunger, with no protruding ring on the bottom, used primarily for sinks and shower drains.

Heated water recycling could be the next addition needed in your home. Millions of gallons of water are wasted a year by people turning on the water and waiting for it to heat up. Water heat exchanges installed in your home can actually save up to 60% of your heated water leading to a less costlier heating and water bill!

Indoor sprinkling system was invented in 1864 by Henry Par Mele’e. It was used in his piano making factory.

Watch your water heat! Water can burn your skin right off at the right temperature. No ones dwelling should have water that could be heated more than 125 degrees (F). At 140 degrees (F) it will take 5 seconds to burn you. Water at 160 degrees (F) will burn your skin in a half a second!

1 in 3 American have reported that they do, in fact, sing in the shower. So belt out your favorite song next time you are under your faucet and feel proud and unashamed!

Check your pipes and faucets regularly! 1 in every 318 homes has a leak in their plumbing system. You can install an in home leak check system that can actually save your home from extensive repairs due to water damage before it is to repairs

Intrigued and bewildered yet? Plumbing actually dates back to 2500 B.C.E. and it is reported that Albert Einstein himself said that he would have been a plumber instead of a patent clerk. If you need any plumbing work done or just want to see more options for the plumbing in your house call your local plumber today!

Different Styles Of Toilets – Whats Your Choice

About Elongated Bowl Toilets

If you like to sit on a throne, then you need an elongated bowl toilet. Originally, elongated designs were intended to help the elderly and the physically disabled, but they are now popular in any type of bathroom because of the enhanced comfort that elongated bowl toilets bring.

elongates toilet - plumbing services


We offer hundreds of toilets, so if you aren’t interested in an elongated unit, we have round bowl toilets, too. More information for Plumbing Services here:

What Is an Elongated Toilet Bowl?

Elongated bowls offer extra comfort with a larger oblong design. With an elongated bowl the user’s upper thigh typically rests on the seat – which creates more comfort and greater ease when standing up from the toilet. From the time the elongated toilet bowl was first introduced it has been considered to be a superior product in comparison to the round bowl. Along with the elderly and the disabled, many people decide to purchase an elongated toilet bowl based solely on comfort and appearance. The elongated bowl is also widely purchased by businesses because they have a more commercial/industrial feel to them in terms of functionality.

We assume some of our customers don’t know which toilet they want. Most people have no idea what the pros and cons of toilet shapes are. Hopefully we can lend you some of our plumbing expertise to help with your purchasing decision.

Round vs Elongated Bowl Toilets

Maybe the most useful comparison between the round variety and elongated bowls is the size of each unit. The round toilet reaches 25 to 28 inches from the wall while the average elongated unit extends between 29 to 31 inches from the wall. If you have the space in your bathroom then an elongated toilet would be the recommended choice if the bathroom has space. Be sure that you can still comply with bathroom layout regulations.

Most elongated toilet bowls are purchased for the comfort that is provided by the shape. Many larger men prefer to use an elongated unit because they fit on the seat more comfortably. In order to accommodate all users, elongated toilets are now a plumbing code requirement in the commercial restroom sector.

Round toilets are usually purchased for bathrooms that do not offer a lot of space. Most people can get away with a round bowl, but if you have back problems, or nerve issues in your legs, etc. keep in mind that elongated bowls will allow you to achieve easier liftoff from the toilet. If you wish to have comfort and ease of use it is suggested you purchase an elongated toilet.

Buy Elongated Toilets Online

As an industry leading plumbing supply company, we offer replacement toilet parts for individual purchase. If you already have the bowl and just need the matching toilet seat, then we’ve got you covered.

Plumbing Tips or ask your Local Plumber

Plumbing Tips or ask your Local Plumber

It is common for plumbing problems often occur right after a newly purchased home.The bathrooms and kitchen are the most frequent sites for these problems. Every homeowner will have to deal with plumbing issues. Here are some tips to help when that happens.

TIP! Frozen pipes are on of the worst plumbing problems. Prevent the pipes from freezing by insulating any sections of pipe that are close to the outside walls, and never allowing the temperature inside to be below freezing.

Noisy pipes is an easy problem to fix. You will need to anchor any type of exposed pipes.San Antonio Plumbing Repairs

TIP! If any water pipe that you have freezes, be sure to turn on the faucet that is closes to the pipe to give the water an exit as the pipe thaws. This gives the pressure somewhere to go, and can keep them from bursting.

To keep your pipes from freezing in the winter, maintain a constant temperature in your home above freezing, even if the house is vacant. Pipes will begin to freeze as soon as they are exposed to temperatures below freezing. It takes time for the pipes to thaw out so that you can have water again. However, frozen pipes often burst, which will cause an enormous mess and repair bill.

TIP! Avoid septic tank problems by having your tank pumped out in five year intervals. Regular maintenance will keep sediment from backing up inside of the tank.

Use filters on all drains to keep foreign objects and debris that might clog the pipes from clogging drains. The bathtub’s strainers need to cleaned out as needed.

TIP! Wait to give compensation to a plumber until they are finished with their work. Although you might be required to pay a down payment before the job is initiated, never pay the bill in full until you are certain that the job is completed to your satisfaction.

Don’t pour oils, grease or fat into your drain. This is especially damaging to garbage disposals because the fat can make the blades go slower and less efficiently. Make sure you dispose of oils in other places other than the sink.plumber

TIP! Knowing which tools to use and how you should use them is an important skill when it comes to plumbing. Read the instructions, which many people overlook, and check out the internet which has many resources to help with plumbing issues.

Schedule one plumber to take care of all your plumbing work at the same time. You may want to have each minor problem attended to as the occur, but kicking the can on some issues until you have a list means you can save a few bucks. Most plumbers have an hourly fee that can be minimized if there is only one trip is cheaper than calling them more than once.

TIP! Don’t pour cooking grease, leftover frying fat or any oils down your sink drain. They might be in liquid form, but after they cool off, they will solidify and make a clog in your drain pipe.

Pour baking soda followed by vinegar down your bathtub drain every month. Plug up the drain and allow the chemical reaction takes place. After waiting a few minutes, clear the pipes out with a gallon of boiling water. Doing this will probably void your pipes of hair and soap scum.
