What Is a Plumbing Emergency?
Because your home is such a precious investment, you take the best care of it you can. However, despite your best efforts, accidents can happen. With age and repeated usage, your home’s plumbing can break down. When that happens you’ll be forced to make a choice between calling for emergency plumbing service or waiting until the next day to call for help. Emergency plumbing service can get expensive since most residential plumbing contractors have higher rates for after-hours labor and emergency repairs.
Fortunately, not all plumbing problems constitute an emergency. Knowing what an emergency is and what it isn’t can make all the difference when it comes to paying for repairs. A plumbing emergency is simply a plumbing problem that can cause damage if not attended to immediately. Burst pipes or overflowing sewers are emergencies because they present a health and safety hazard to your home and its occupants. Most other problems can wait until business hours.
Water Heater Replacement Tips
When it’s time to replace your water heater you have an excellent opportunity to examine your options. If you’re lucky, you’ll only have to make a decision about your hot water heater every 10 years or so. If you’re about to replace yours you should take the time to make some decisions.
- Utility Source: Gas water heaters and electric water heaters work from different energy sources. With fluctuating energy prices it may be cheaper to switch.
- Style: A traditional water heater is great but tankless water heaters are better in many respects. Tankless water heaters are cheaper to operate, provide endless hot water and are environmentally-friendly.
- Maintenance: Newer tanks are designed with features that reduce the need for maintenance. All hot water heaters need maintenance to work their best. Our plumbers can help you decide what model is best for you.
At Valley Plumbing Pros, we are a hot water heater service company that handles installation and water heater maintenance. No matter the age of your hot water tank, we have solutions that can upgrade it or help you get the most out of it.
How Is Professional Drain Cleaning Done?
Good drain cleaning services don’t come in bottles from the hardware store. Chemical drain cleaners are dangerous to handle and can cause irreversible damage to your plumbing. Instead of handling your clogged drains by yourself, call the clogged drain repair experts at Valley Plumbing Pros.
Our approach to drain cleaning is to first identify what the root cause of the problem is. Often the causes of clogged drains are poor upkeep or roots invading a sewer line. Once the problem is identified, we will set out to repair the problem. This could mean removing and cleaning P-traps under a sink or running a rooter through a drain line. Regardless of the cause, we have the solutions to your problems.
