What Are the Different Kinds of Plumber Services?

Not Sure What Type of Plumber You Need for Your Problem?

plumber installs and repairs waste, water, and numerous other plumbing systems. There are various services available. Some of the more common services are emergency leak repairs, unclogging drains and pipes, and replacing worn out garbage disposals, household appliances, and water heaters. Plumbers can also remove tree roots that have broken through to sewage systems, re-routing pipes and performing preventative checks on new or existing properties. Emergency services are typically more expensive than the routine ones.

A leak detection plumbing service will review water meters for any unusually high meter readings which will show leaks. Looking for a leak could take several hours of a plumber’s time and could mean cutting holes within walls to inspect pipes and their fittings. Food, hair, grease and other items will clog up bathroom and kitchen sinks. A plumbing service will use rooting machines, hydrojetting, and plumber’s snakes to unclog drains and pipes.

When garbage disposals get worn over time, plumbing professionals may have to install a new one or to repair any parts which are damaged on the pre-existing one. Repairing a damaged disposal may mean replacing broken components and fittings or replacing the whole unit. Replacing a water heater is the most common emergency call which plumbing specialists will  receive. Replacing a water heater will usually take two or three hours and is a specialized service which is best left to a professional due to the fact water heaters have to comply with all regional building codes.

Tree roots will often break through into sewage pipes, thus creating a toilet backup. Plumbers will use specialized snakes to look in pipes and to identify where roots are growing, thus being able to properly remove them. Re-routing pipes is sometimes  a necessity when having a home remodeling job done or when the pipes are old and damaged, and most plumbing specialists will include re-routing and repiping within the services they offer. Re-routing mean changing the pipe configuration in order to match a bathroom’s or kitchen’s new design or to close leaking or damaged pipes off.
