Burst or Leaking Pipes
Do you have weak or zero water pressure in your home or business? That may indicate a leak or rupture. Corrosion of old or frozen pipes is the most common reasons for plumbing leaks. While the pressure problem is inconvenient at best, a leak is going to cause some water damage – a lot of it if the leak is substantial. Make sure you turn off the main water valve in your home and give us a call.
Overflowing or Clogged Toilet
Your toilet is overflowing, or it won’t flush at all. You have tried the plunger, but that’s not working! You might have a blockage farther down the pipe that could be larger than the plunger can handle. An overflowing toilet is a serious problem that can cause a lot of damage very quickly. You should call Plumbtech Plumbing if you have plunged your toilet and the water isn’t going back down or if you think the problem may be bigger than just a clog.
Lately your sink or shower has been draining slowly and has started to pool but now it has stopped draining completely. If you have more than one fixture backing up, your main drain may be clogged or broken. To fix this kind of issue you will need to call in professional help.
Electric Hot Water Heater not working properly
Turning on the tap or shower and finding lukewarm, or worse, ice cold water running through your pipes is not pleasant – especially if you are already in the shower. We are experienced in repair and installation of electric water heaters and can respond quickly to get your hot water working once again.
In times of heavy rain or spring thaw, sump pumps can be lifesavers to keep our basements dry. However, they can stop working, and when they do, quick action is needed to repair or replace the pump. If your basement tends to flood often, we will make sure you have the right size pump to handle the volume. We also install back-up systems for additional insurance against primary pump failure.
When you think of the worst plumbing emergency, a strong contender would be a sewer system backup into your home or business. If you’re concerned that might be a possibility, call us to install a backwater valve to prevent such an occurrence. While we’re there we can have a look at your main drain line using one of our drain cameras to make sure it isn’t being compromised by sags or tree roots.
Frozen Water Pipes
Leaks are more common in the winter when water can freeze, expand, and cause pipes to split.
There are 4 signs to tell if you have frozen pipes: If the temperature outside is 0º C or below, you have very little or no water running out of the faucet, frost on the pipes, or a bad smell coming from the drain. These are all reasons to give us a call right away so that we can thaw your pipes and reduce the risk of broken, leaking pipes in your home. If you are experiencing a plumbing emergency where you can’t control the water, make sure you turn the water off at the main shut off valve.
