Common Plumbing Issues Chapman Can Solve
As we previously mentioned, Chapman can solve plumbing issues, both big and small. We take pride in every job we perform, no matter what it is.
Big plumbing issues solved by Chapman
When you’re dealing with a plumbing emergency, you need a plumber to come to your Southport home or business immediately before any more damage occurs. Some of the serious issues we see on during a regular basis include:
Sewer system backups
Sewer system backups can be catastrophic in terms of the damage and expenses that can occur. Three of the most common causes of sewer backups include:
- Old or broken plumbing lines or pipes. Pipes in older homes can often break open over time as they deteriorate.
- Blockage. Blocked pipes are another common cause of sewer backups and can be caused when tree roots grow into the pipes and crack them.
- Clogs. Clogs in either your home’s or municipality’s pipes can cause sewage water to back up into your house, creating a messy and expensive scenario.
Loss of hot water
A loss of hot water creates an uncomfortable and inconvenient situation in your Southport home. With no hot water, you can forget about that soothing morning shower to get you ready for the day! A loss of hot water usually indicates an issue with your water heater. This may be caused by a failed heating element or a tripped limit switch.
Pipes can burst for a variety of reasons. In the winter, pipes that freeze expand and can end up bursting. Pipes can also burst because of serious clogs caused by an increase of pressure inside the pipes or older pipes that corrode or rust over time.
Broken water lines
When a water pipe breaks inside your Southport home’s walls, serious flooding can occur, leading to a very costly repair. Broken water lines can occur from wear and tear over time, shifting soil or even rodents chewing through them.
Small plumbing issues solved by Chapman
Smaller plumbing issues are not nearly as serious or expensive as the larger ones we just discussed. However, even small issues should be repaired in a timely fashion to prevent more damage from occurring. Just a few of the smaller plumbing repair issues our plumbers service on a frequent basis include:
Drip, drip, dip! The noise isn’t very noticeable during the day but can be deafening at night while you’re trying to sleep. A dripping faucet oftentimes is caused by a corroded valve seat, damaged faucet components, or a worn-out washer. The plumbers at Chapman can provide timely and accurate repairs for dripping sinks.
Clogged bath or shower drain
Just like sink drains, a clogged tub is typically the result of a buildup of hair and soap. If a plunger doesn’t work for your drain cleaning, a plumber can use a snake to clear the clog that might be hard to reach.
Jammed garbage disposal
Garbage disposals stop working because something is jammed inside the unit, usually food or a foreign object such as a utensil. Oftentimes, homeowners can shut off power to the unit and use a pair of pliers to pull out the object. If the disposal is still clogged, try inserting a wooden spoon or broom handle into the drain opening while moving it back and forth on the impeller. If none of these solutions fix the clog, contact a plumber. In some cases, you may need to replace your disposal, especially if it’s more than 10 years old.
Learn More About Plumbing Systems We Work With:
Frozen Pipes – Indiana’s harsh winter can destroy your pipes if you don’t properly plan ahead for the frigid temperatures. Leave a steady trickle of water running in your kitchen and bathroom sinks. This will reduce the pressure in your pipes, keeping them from freezing and cracking.
Replacing Pipes – Scale buildup from hard water reduces water flow through pipes and is a poor conductor of heat. Eventually, pipes can become completely clogged. If you have scaly, white deposits in sink basins or on fixtures in your bath or kitchen, a water softener will help improve your water quality.
Concrete Slab Leaks – Concrete slabs leave no room for shortcuts or quick fixes. Repairing plumbing within a concrete slab is expensive, time-consuming and can happen any time of year. Expect any damage in your slab to take at least a week’s worth of inspection and labor to be completed.
Leaky Pipes – Notice a leak under your kitchen sink? Don’t wait until it’s too late to contact a plumber. Early leak detection can mean the difference between a $5 repair and a $5,000 repair.
Faucets – Hard water can gum up the inner workings of your faucet, causing clogs and other problems that will cost hundreds of dollars in plumbing repair.
Showerheads – Hard water can damage showerheads slowly over time because of the buildup of lime and calcium, which will cause low water pressure. You will need to use a harsh chemical solvent to get rid of mineral scaling or replace the pipes completely.
Bathroom Remodels/Shower Pans – Freestanding showers, especially in older homes and apartment complexes, often feature fiberglass showers pans. Over time these pans will crack due to water pressure and hard water buildup.
Toilets – If you have an older style toilet, we believe most of them can be effectively repaired. If your toilet is constantly clogging or flushing slowly, it might be time to invest in a new one.
Sump Pump – Sump pumps are crucial to keeping basements dry. If you leave your sump pump unchecked you could be left with thousands of dollars in flood damage.
Hot Water Heaters – We offer a variety of tankless and standard water heaters. We can replace your current system with a similar model or we can discuss energy savings options.
Water Softener – A water softener will help decrease the amount of calcium and magnesium in your water and keep your dishes and plumbing in great shape.
Garbage Disposal – A clogged garbage disposal is a common household issue that can easily be resolved with the help of a trained plumber. We offer disposals ranging from the most basic to units that are very quiet and come with extended warranties.
