Common Plumbing Repairs & How To Avoid Them
You and your family rely on your plumbing system each and every day. If there is ever a problem with your plumbing, it can be an unbearable inconvenience. Fresh water and wastewater removal from the home is what every homeowner deserves. The plumbing system delivers water to make it available at our fingertips, but certain problems can cause hours of trouble.

Repairing Plumbing Clogs
Drain clogs can happen for any number of reasons. Most commonly, a clog occurs due to foreign substances being put down the drain but there are other causes. The sewer lines will narrow over time if limescale builds up within them. The process creates only a tiny opening in the pipe for the water to flow through. Tree root clogs can also be a big problem in New Jersey. Trees that grow shallow roots can be problematic for your sewer lines as they will break into connections in order to find water. Clogs can be removed by a plumber, but they will need to know what type of clog it is. Don’t try to use drain chemicals because they are bad for the pipes and connections.
Water Line Repairs
When you have a water line problem, the line may need to be replaced. We will first detect and determine where the issue is and then make a recommendation to you on the best way to repair the line. Even a pinhole leak in your water line will decrease your water pressure. Leaks are not always easy to detect and in fact, many homeowners have leaks that go undetected for months when they are very small.
If your water bill is higher than you’d expect, it may be one sign that there is a problem. There are other symptoms than water pressure issues that you may have noticed such as wet areas on the lawn or foundation of the home, sounds of water running, or signs of mold or mildew growth.
Leaks can occur anywhere along your water lines and also at any valve or juncture where pipes or appliances are connected. It’s possible your problem could be with any number of things including bad connections or leaks in refrigerators, freezers, dishwashers, hot water heaters, water pumps, or wells. The repairs needed depends on where the problem is.
