Clogged Drain & Pipe Repair - Allen Plumber

drainMost Allen pipe plumbing problems occur at or near fixtures such as sinks, tubs, and toilets. Sometimes, however, the pipes or drains themselves are the root of the problem. Pipes can be temperamental - they can leak, sweat, freeze, or make loud noises.

There are a number of potential Dallas plumbing leaks. Some can flood your home, while others are not nearly so damaging. Our approach at Allen Plumbing Pro to stopping a leak depends on the type of leak.

Household plumbing pipes are installed in walls and under floors during construction. They carry fresh water to kitchens, bathrooms, utility rooms, and so on. A separate system carries waste water from a sink or toilet to the main drain and out of the house to the sewer or septic system. Pipe is available in cast-iron, brass, copper, galvanized steel, and plastic. Fittings are connections between pipes that allow pipes to turn or attach to a fixture such as a faucet or water heater.

How fittings are installed on pipe depends on the material. For example, copper pipes are soldered together or joined with compression or flare fittings. Plastic pipes are joined with plastic screw-on fittings or PVC cement. In addition, transition fittings can be used to join plastic and metal pipes.

One thing to remember about pipe is that it doesn't move, nor is it subject to wear. Therefore, the greatest cause of pipe problems is age. Pipes can become brittle, corrode, or fittings may fail. Damage can also result from freezing. Corrosion is the gradual destruction of a matter by its environs. Dissimilar metal contact, oxygen, water and debris may cause corrosion in plumbing pipes. Left untreated, corroded pipes will cause a range of expensive plumbing difficulties such as burst pipes, leaking slab, and clogged drains. Americans spend millions of dollars on pipe corrosion repair in their homes and offices every year.

Slab Leaks

We are often asked how you can tell if have a water leak under my slab? Major slab leak symptoms are:

  • The sound of running water when no water should be running, you could have a slab leak.
  • A hot spot on the floor could indicate a hot water line leak in your slab.
  • If you observe cracks in walls or floors, it could be damage from a slab leak.
  • Mildew or excessive moisture under carpets could indicate your slab is cracked and the pipes inside are leaking water.
  • High water bills could also indicate a slab leak. Although a high water bill could indicate a water leak behind the wall, or in your pool, plumbing under the slab is also suspect.

Allen Leak Detection

allen leak detection and repair

If you have a mysterious leak, but you’re unsure of where it is coming from, your best option may employ an Allen plumber to perform a leak detection service. Leak detection, in theory is simple: you pressurize the water line and listen for the source of gurgling. However, this is easier said than done. It takes a highly trained and experienced professional to accurately pinpoint leaks. It also requires special equipment. One method involves using highly sensitive geophones to listen for the leak. Our Allen plumbing techs are experts at locating and repairing leaks. Call today for assistance.

HVAC Condensate Drain Line

The condensate drain line is one of the most important parts of the HVAC process. The drain line commonly becomes clogged. Although clogs occur for many reasons, one of the most common is algae formation. Algae easily grows in this environment. The same is true for mold and mildew. The growth of these organisms becomes apparent after the buildup occurs. The best way to control or eradicate these is to disinfect the drain line using a brush and disinfectant. If you cannot disassemble or access your drain line to disinfect it, you may want to hire a professional.

Know Your Water Lines

Your water supply lines are under relatively high pressure. Most homes are at about 50 to 60 pounds per square inch (PSI). Because of this pressure, when a leak occurs, you quickly notice the spray of water. Modern home supply lines are copper soldered with joints and other fittings. Older homes may have galvanized pipe. Outdoor systems like yard sprinklers are typically plastic. We understand that working with these various pipe materials can be a challenge for the average home owner. Our plumbers are stocked and prepared to handle all types of water supply and drainage lines.
