Emergency Plumbing

While we pride ourselves in providing plumbing services 24 hours a day, weekends, and even holidays, our customers must know what would be considered an emergency plumbing situation. Below are examples of plumbing emergencies that need to be taken care of immediately to prevent further damage. 

Flooding: Whether it is because of a burst pipe, sewer backup, or water shut off valve failure, flood damage can cause major damage to structures and is a safety concern. 

No Water: Without access to running water, you will be prevented from using the bathroom as well as cooking and cleaning.

Burst Pipe: If a pipe gets frozen, water is not able to pass through it and will also expand, causing it to crack so once it thaws, there may be a risk of flooding. It’s vital to know where your water shut off valves are located and how they work. One of our plumbers can let you know where it is when they are there during your preventative maintenance visit.

Also, if you only have one toilet in your house and it is clogged, that is an emergency. 

If you are searching for a “24-hour emergency plumber near me,” we are just a phone call away.

Plumbing Basics

First, it is important to know that the plumbing system in your home is made up of two separate subsystems. One subsystem brings in freshwater while the other one removes wastewater. The water that enters your home is under pressure, which means it can travel upstairs, around corners, or wherever else it needs to go. The water passes through a meter that records the amount of water that you use. The main water valve or shutoff is typically located close to the meter.

Plumbing Work

The drain-waste-vent system’s function is to carry away wastewater to septic tanks. Waste matter can leave your house because the drainage pipes all angle downward. This way the sewer line carries on this downward flow to one’s septic tank.

Types of Plumbing

The following are five types of plumbing pipes used in older and newer homes: 

  • PEX is an affordable plastic tubing mostly used for water supply lines
  • PVC is mostly used for drain, waste, and vent pipes
  • ABS, which is similar to PVC, is also used mostly for drain, waste, and vent pipes
  • Copper is a metal used mostly for water supply lines 
  • Galvanized is lead-free and mostly used for water supply and drain lines in older homes

Homer Leak Detection

Did you know that water damage is the second-highest home insurance claim costing $10,000 on average to fix? Fortunately, early leak detection helps to reduce water damage by using water sensors.

Best Water Leak Detector

With today’s technology, you can find the best of the best water leak detectors on the market, which our professionals can help install. Those worth the investment include water leak detectors that feature an automatic leak shut-off, which will automatically shut off the main water source in your home when it detects a leak, temperature monitoring, which indicates when pipes are freezing near the point of bursting, and expandable water leak detectors that include at least 4-6 feet of sensor cables to connect sensors for expanded water detection coverage.

Water Leak Detector Residential

Residential properties now have the option to have water leak detectors that have a battery-operated power source. However, some sensors must be wired and connected to your home’s water system for special features like the automatic shut off of your home’s main water source. For the best water leak detection, check that it can be adjusted to give you the power of how much water should accumulate before an alarm goes off. Since small leaks can lead to big issues later, water detection alerts are vital and there are many ways to connect the sensor in your home.

Homer Slab Leak Detection

Slab leaks can cause a lot of problems for your home or business. Not only can a leak increase your water bill, but it can also cause extensive water damage that may become a breeding ground for mildew and mold, a major health hazard that puts you and your family at risk.

A slab leak is often caused by a pipe bursting. One of the first signs of a slab leak is puddles of water on your floor, but unfortunately, a leak isn’t always so obvious, especially if it’s a slow leak. If there is water seeping through your floor, it’s important to rule out any other sources of the leak. Our slab leak detection experts will do just that.

Other signs of a slab leak include low water pressure, cracking in floors, water puddles outdoors, hot floors, and unexplained noises. Our experts know what to look for and will evaluate and inspect your home. If we detect a slab leak, we will repair the leak, extract the water, conduct moisture, and bacteria testing, and repair any damages.
