What Kinds of Services Are Performed?
If you're unsure what exactly the problem might be, Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Regina is here to help. We can properly diagnose the problem and recommend solutions for you. Whether the drain needs unblocking or a tree root has infiltrated the pipe underground, we can solve your issue and help fight off more damage to your home.
Diagnosis and Inspection
Our expert plumbers use advanced tools to locate the problem and diagnose it correctly. Sewer cameras are used to inspect your pipes to find the cause of any issues and evaluate the health of your sewer line system. This will reveal if the issue comes from blockages or if a leak is causing the problem. We can also identify the severity of the situation and its impact on the rest of your home.
Clogged Drain Repair
Materials that go down your drain can build up over time and lead to blockages, clogging your drain completely. Slow-moving drains or recurring toilet clogs are both indicative of having a seriously clogged drain. Luckily, our emergency plumbing service can make quick work of that clog using our expertise and tools. A drain snake or auger can be used to unblock any debris from your pipes and allow your drain to flow freely. Having a professional plumber fix your drain blockages means you won’t have to worry about future drain clogs for a long time.
Burst Pipes / Plumbing Repairs
If you're facing a leaky pipe or an all-out pipe burst, our Regina emergency plumbing service can help. If you notice your water bill has been increasing for seemingly no reason or have noticed pools of water around your plumbing fixtures, it could be a sign of a leak. Our dedicated plumbers are experts at leak detection and can quickly perform emergency repairs.
What Leads to Regina Emergency Plumbing?
Given that an emergency plumbing situation can really escalate to serious damage and costly repairs, it’s good to know what causes them—and how to avoid them. Right off the bat, we’ll mention that installation equipment such as backwater valves or sump pumps can help mitigate emergencies. Moreover, making timely and prudent efforts toward water leak detection is also a smart move.
If you’re noticing yourself calling an emergency plumber far more often than you should be, then keep reading to discover some common causes of plumbing issues—along with some preventative tips.
Improperly Used Drains
Harmful materials such as fats, oils, and grease can cause soft blockages in your pipes. Hard blocks such as large debris like toys, rocks, and anything else that shouldn't go down your toilet can cause a large blockage, especially since soft blocks will fuse with large objects to create walls in your pipes.
Ensure the following harmful materials do not make it down your drain:
- Fats, oils, and grease
- Paper towels, tissues, and wet wipes
- Excessive amounts of toilet paper
- Personal hygiene products
- Coffee grounds
- Dental floss
- And really anything other than human waste, water, or toilet paper
A variety of factors can cause damage to your pipes, eventually leading to burst pipes or completely clogged drains.
Tree roots: If a large number of trees surround your home, your pipes could be at risk of tree root intrusion. Roots search for water underground and your pipes may be at risk of being infiltrated by roots if they detect liquid. This can happen via small cracks or sometimes the roots will wrap around the lines, eventually bursting them open.
Corrosion: As metal pipes age, the metal within them starts to corrode over time. Improper usage of your drain can accelerate the process. Another commonly overlooked culprit for corrosion is chemical drain cleaners. These chemicals have corrosive components that will trigger more wear and corrosion damage, eventually requiring emergency plumbing service. Instead of harmful chemicals, call your licensed plumber to bring back your flow of water without causing costly damage down the road.
Frozen pipes: A wintertime nightmare, underground or exposed pipes are susceptible to freezing. Although they aren’t always at risk of bursting, they can still affect the water pressure flowing through your home. If you want to avoid basement flooding or more severe plumbing disasters, this issue is important to address quickly.
Frequently Asked Question About Regina Emergency Plumbing Service
What Happens if I Need Sewer Line Repairs?
If your emergency requires a full sewer line repair or replacement, our advanced techniques can solve it as quickly and efficiently as possible with minimal to no damage to your lawn. Pipelining is a technique used that's non-invasive and involves lining the damaged pipe with epoxy that quickly hardens in place to prevent any leaks. Pipe bursting uses hydraulic power to direct a new pipe into place while bursting the existing one apart. If neither of these methods is suitable, your lawn may need to be dug into to properly fix the issue.
