Emergency Plumbing Service
A plumbing emergency can crop up at any time and is not a respecter of 9-5 business hours. Bahama Plumbing has highly skilled and motivated technicians ready 24/7 to come to your aid in Waxahachie, TX.
The most common reason for people calling us is to fix a leaking pipe. For a bad burst, hundreds and maybe thousands of gallons of water can quickly wreck your home. Carpets, furnishings, and priceless possessions that have taken years to collect can be destroyed in minutes. There is no more heart-breaking task than to clean up after such a heartbreaking mess. Your home may need weeks and even months to dry out and be repaired.
The sooner you stop the flow of water the better, as less water damage will happen. The first thing you should do when you have a burst pipe is to locate and turn off the main water shutoff valve. Then you should open all your taps and flush the toilet to remove all the water from the pipes.
After this, you should turn off the mains electricity supply, to avoid the risk of electrocution. Not everyone knows where these valves or switches are, so find out and save yourself a lot of heartaches. If you see sparks or fire, call the fire department as soon as you can.
Watching your sink slowly drain away is a close second to watching paint dry. Clogs growing in your drainpipes are the main cause of slowly draining sinks, bathtubs, and shower trays.
Blockages are caused by food, grease, hair, and toothpaste sticking to the insides of the drainpipes. If they are allowed to grow the clogs will slowly restrict the flow of water through the pipes until they are eventually totally blocked.
Drain cleaners may sometimes remove smaller clogs, but if they keep reoccurring, repeated use of the cleaners could corrode older pipework and joints, resulting in a leak. The safest way to remove clogs without damaging the pipes is to have a professional drain cleaning service from Bahama Plumbing. The safest way to avoid clogs in the future is to put grease and food in the compost bin and place hair traps over every drain.
Any leak on your property is bad news but having a slab leak can cause your home to collapse. A slab leak happens when the water or sewer lines under or underneath your home’s concrete foundation are damaged and start to leak.
As it gets older your house can shift on its foundation, and this causes additional pressure on the pipes. Over time this can cause them to corrosion, leading to a slab leak.
The pipes will also run up against any material they are in contact with, such as concrete, gravel, soil, and even other pipes, adding to the wear and tear on them. Even tree roots can damage the water and sewer lines.
Once water or sewage gets inside the foundation cracks can appear that undermine the structural integrity of your home. If you notice water forming around the outside of your home, or that your lawn looks green and lush even during a dry spell you need to call us, you could have a slab leak.
If you have standing water in your sink, you may have clogs in the drainpipes. If you see brown water gurgling and bubbling up through the drain, together with the smell of sewage, you could have a blocked or damaged sewer line.
Remember the grease, food, hair, and toothpaste that allows clogs to form, well they can also clog up the sewer line. Add to this any item like facial tissues, sanitary towels, and other rubbish you may have put down the toilet and you have all the ingredients for a sewer blockage. Without access to the main sewer network, your wastewater will back up into your home.
You now need to quickly locate and remove any blockage. We have specialized equipment like a video camera on the end of flexible tubing. With this, we can quickly find and assess the extent of the blockage or any damage. A drain cleaning service will safely remove a blockage, but if the line is damaged it may need to be replaced. Not to fret. We have many years of experience with this type of plumbing service, so you are in safe hands.
Water Heater Installation and Repair
Another expert plumbing service we offer is repairing water heaters. Water heaters are normally very robust but unless they are carefully maintained they will break down. That is why Bahama Plumbing recommends that you schedule an annual service with us. Not only will you have peace of mind, but your heater will be running more efficiently and save you on energy bills.
A well-maintained heater will last between 10-15 years before it needs replacing. We offer both tank and tankless heaters as a replacement. It is vital that you select a model that will provide you with the right amount of hot water for your needs. But, whatever type of heater is best suited to your needs, you can rely on us to install it correctly and safely for you.
