Emergency Plumbing Service
We will always have somebody on standby 24/7, but if you are on the lookout for any early warning signs that you need a plumbing service, you will avoid having to call us out for an emergency.
For instance, if you can smell damp in your home, you may have a water leak somewhere. At the first sign of any problem, you should call Pilot plumbing. It is better to sort a small problem than to go through the heartache of clearing up the mess after a pipe has burst. There is nothing as stressful as throwing away ruined processions that you have taken a lifetime to collect.
Professional Drain Cleaning
Have you noticed that your sink is taking longer to drain? This is a sign that many people choose to ignore, often until it is too late. Some will pour drain cleaner down the sink and hope that will work. Often drain cleaners will remove small clogs, but if you pour chemicals down the sink too often then you may be corroding any pipework and joints and so cause a leak.
A good idea is to stop pouring things like warm grease, coffee grinds, and food down the sink. It is not a trash can, so put these items in the compost or waste disposal. Continuing to pour these items down the sink will only build up any clog already there or start a new one.
Warm grease will stick to the insides of the pipe and attract food and other materials. Over time the pipe will become narrower and eventually block the flow of water. Book a professional drain cleaning service from Pivot plumbing to clear your pipes.
Sewer Line Cleaning, Repair, and Replacement
What is worse than having your pipes clog? Having your sewer line clog up and block. If you have noticed any foul sewer-like smells coming from your drains, then this could be what is happening. If several sinks, bathtubs, or shower trays start blocking at the same time and discolored water starts to gurgle back into your home then this could be due to your sewer line being blocked or damaged.
If the sewer line is blocked for any reason, then any wastewater has nowhere else to go but back into your home. This represents a serious health hazard, and you need an experienced Portland-based plumber to help.
Pivot plumbing has very experienced technicians who are skilled in cleaning and repairing sewer lines that have become blocked or damaged.
Slab Leak Detection
Leaks are not always easy to detect. But the most damaging type of leak is a slab leak. These take place inside and under the concrete slab that most homes are built on.
A slab leak may have been running for some time, and often the first sign is a larger-than-expected water bill.
Other signs are pools of water gathering around the outside of your home, and if your lawn is supernaturally green and damp even if it has not rained. With a leaking pipe in the concrete foundation, you may notice damp ground floors. If the leaking pipe is the hot water pipe, then your concrete floor may be warm to the touch.
If you experience any of these signs, then structural damage to your foundation will occur. The longer you leave the problem the greater the chance that your home may collapse and the greater the eventual stab repair bill will be. So do not delay in calling Pivot plumbing.
Water Heater Plumbing Service
With so many water heater models on the market, it is not always easy to select the right one for you. The most important factor is to pick the right-sized unit for your needs. Most people will have more water appliances in their home than when they first moved in and larger families, so there will be greater demand for hot water.
An underpowered unit will not be able to cope with the demand and will cause you endless frustration. If you need help, selecting the best unit for your needs then call Pivot plumbing today. Whatever your choice, we recommend that you have it regularly maintained to ensure its safe and efficient running.
