Homeowners Can Avoid Costly Sewer Repairs

By home repairs, Phoenix Plumbing, plumbing repairs, Service Line Protection Program (SLiPP), sewer, SLIPP No Comments

avoid-sewer-repairs-SLIPPAvoid costly water and sewer line repairs with Tempe’s Service Line Protection Program.

Many homeowners are unaware that they are responsible for both the main water line that runs from their home to the city’s water meter and the main sewer line that runs from their home to the citys sewer main.

If these lines become clogged, collapse or otherwise fail to operate, the homeowner is responsible for any necessary repairs, which can cost thousands of dollars. The City of Tempe created the Service Line Protection Program (SLiPP) to help ease this financial burden for homeowners, and you may be eligible to enroll.

Gas Line Repairs

Do not try this at home!

If you are not a professional plumber, you shouldn’t try to handle a Gas line repair.

You should never attempt to repair a gas line yourself and in emergencies you should always call 911 if you suspect a gas leak. As a safety precaution, a sulfur-like odor is added to natural gas to help people identify gas leaks. If you smell this odor in an emergency situation, leave the building then call 911 immediately. City Wide Plumbing Service and Company will assess your situation and advise your next safe steps as well as handle repairs and replacement of necessary gas lines.

Know How to Recognize and Respond to a Gas Emergency

Take immediate action if you encounter any of the following signs when you clean out a sewer line with a rooter device:

  • A natural gas odor at the cleanout or inside the building served by the sewer line, even if it’s faint or momentary
  • Bubbles rising through standing water or in the toilet bowl

If these signs are present, stop what you’re doing, and:

  •  Leave the area immediately.
  • Don’t use an automated door or turn on or off any electric switches, thermostats or appliance controls.
  • From a safe place call 911 and Southwest Gas at 1-877-860-6020 immediately, day or night. A Southwest Gas representative will be there as soon as possible.
  • Don’t smoke or use lighters or matches.

Should You Consider Using a Home Warranty Company?

By home warranty company, Phoenix Plumbing, plumber, plumbing repairs No Comments

Home warranty companies are great but are not always the best option when dealing with homewarranty-plumbingplumbing repairs. They only pay the plumbing company that comes out a certain amount, some plumbing companies may try to take advantage of the consumer by up selling them on items that are not needed and not covered under the warranty. Example, the warranty company may cover the replacement of a water heater, the plumbing company that comes out will then tell the customer that the T & P line is not up to code and will charge the customer hundreds of dollars to “fix” the issue. 9 times out of 10 the T & P line is not a legitimate problem.

It’s always best to shop around when you need a plumbing repair but it usually isn’t convenient because you are faced with the emergency situation. It’s best to develop a relationship with a local plumber that you can trust and depend on when your problems arise.

Call City Wide Plumbing and Service Co. 480-966-8795 as we are that trusting and dependable company.

Your satisfaction is our #1 priority.

Sewer Smell Plumbing Tip

By Phoenix Plumbing, plumbing repairs, plumbing tips, plumbing trouble, sewer, sewer smell No Comments
P-trap

P-trap

A sewer smell can be an unpleasant experience and can usually be solved by a process of elimination.  Here are some tips you can do to try and resolve the nasty odor.

Drains are designed to hold water in what is called a P-trap, the water acts as a barrier to keep sewer gas from permeating the home. Start by running water down the drains and flushing toilets especially the ones that do not get used often to restore the water in the p-trap.

Check your clean outs to make sure the plugs are installed and secured.

 

Another culprit could be a bad wax ring seal between the toilet flange and the base of the toilet.

This wax ring can occasionally leak, sometimes from a rocking toilet that has broken the seal causing sewer gas to find its way out from under the toilet. If that’s the case, you’ll have to remove the toilet and replace the wax ring. If the toilet rocks, use shims between the stool and the floor and caulk the joint. This will ensure that a rocking toilet doesn’t ruin the new wax ring.

A more serious problem would be a broken or cracked sewer line or even a loose connection joint in the vent in the ceiling or wall. If you’ve addressed the three easier possibilities, contact a plumber who specializes in hunting down leaks .

Locate! Locate! Locate!

I cannot stress enough how important it is to locate your utilities before starting a home improvement project. No matter how big or small the project, locating your utilities first will save  you spending money in unnecessary repairs later. Call Blue Stake before you dig for public utilities outside of your home. Call your local plumber or locating company for all private utilities inside your home.

This is an example of a small job gone wrong. A company came out to install a doggie door. As they cut into the block wall they got flooded with water. The tech installing the door cut through a copper water pipe. Luckily the homeowner is not out any money, the company is taking care of the repairs, but this could have all been avoided had they had the utilities located first. After the plumbing, concrete patch and paint, I’m sure the company is going to spend more on repairs then it cost to put the door in.
