Bathroom Renovations 101: Running New Pipes

When I decided to add a pedestal sink and claw foot tub to my bathroom, I had no idea how much new plumbing I had to run. Since I had never run pipes before, I wasn't sure how to do it properly. I did a lot of research before I started so that I could be sure that I was doing it right. As I was researching, I knew that it would be helpful to have all of the information I found in one place. That was the inspiration for this site. I hope that the plumbing resources help you with your next home improvement project.

3 General Plumbing Services That Your Plumber Can Provide For You

A plumber can help you with so many different things in your home in terms of your plumbing. This article will discuss 3 general plumbing services that your plumber can provide for you. 

Water Leak Detection And Repair 

If you are having a leak of some sort in your home, whether it be a leaking faucet, a broken pipe that has caused damage to your celling and/or flooring, a leaking dishwasher, or some other type of leak, it is important that you call a plumber right away. Thankfully, most plumbers offer 24/7 services, so you will be able to get a hold of them at any time of the day or night. This is excellent because leaks can lead to severe damage in your home, so having a plumber determine exactly where the leak is, what is causing it, and how exactly to repair it are all going to be crucial steps that your plumber will perform for you.

Garbage Disposal Repair Or Replacement 

Another important general service that a plumber can provide is the repair or replacement of your garbage disposal. Your garbage disposal is going to be a key element in your kitchen that you use all of the time. Because of this, it is important that the garbage disposal stays in good working order for you. You may need to have the blades sharpened because they will likely dull over time, or you may need to have the motor replaced because it will no longer run. In any case, your plumber is going to be able to evaluate the problem with your garbage disposal and explain to you the best options for preparing it. 

Plumbing Blockages

Whether your toilet, sink, bath tub, or other drain within your home is clogged, this is going to be a problem for you. Not only is this frustrating in terms of daily use, but it can be a sign that you have a huge plumbing issue. Because a clog makes the area that it is located in non-functional, it can make it almost impossible to use your plumbing like you need to. Calling plumbing services right away will allow them to remove the clog and fix the problem before it is able to get much worse. They will use non-abrasive means to clean out the blockage, which will likely involve snaking the drain to remove anything that may be stuck down it. If necessary, they will even remove pipes in order to get these blockages out.
