Emergency Plumbing Service
Most businesses in Las Vegas, NV are open 24/7 and cannot wait until the next day for a repair. If you want an emergency plumber, then call us, we deal with both residential and commercial customers. All our plumbers are highly trained to deal with all plumbing problems, and it will not be long before an expert arrives to fix the problem for you.
A frequent problem a plumber encounters is burst pipes and the first thing you must do is turn off the main water shutoff valve to prevent further damage to your property. If you do not know where it is then find out now, the sooner you turn it off the less water damage will happen. Another good idea is to turn off the electricity supply to avoid the risk of electrocution.
Your Sinks are Slow to Drain
Have you noticed that it taking longer and longer for the water to drain from your sink? If so, you have a clog forming in your drain line. As the clog grows it slowly restrict the flow of water, and if untreated will eventually block the drain line. Sometimes pouring some store-bought chemicals down the sink will remove smaller clogs but will not work to remove severe blockages.
If you pour too many chemicals down the sink you could corrode the drain line and joints causing a leak. The safest way to remove clogs is to have a professional drain cleaning service from us.
Before any work is undertaken our plumber will use state-of-the-art equipment to locate and determine the extent of the problem. They will then be able to inform you as to the best course of action to take next.
To avoid this problem happening in the future we advise you to stop pouring warm grease, food, coffee grinds, and other materials down the sink. As the warm grease cools it will stick to the insides of the drain line and allow other materials to stick also. Place any of these materials in the compost.
The Water Flow is Poor
There is nothing worse than having to wait for your bath to fill up. There could be several reasons for this, one of the main causes is a faulty valve in your water heater. Or, slows the flow of water due to those clogs that have built up could also be the guilty party. Whatever the reason you need a skilled plumber to quickly locate and fix the problem so you can start enjoying that hot bath again.
Discolored Water is Gurgling Back into Your Sink
If you can smell sewage as well, this is a severe problem as it indicates that your sewer line may be blocked or damaged. Whatever causes clogs to form will also lead to the sewer line blocking.
In addition, any unsuitable materials that are flushed down the toilet will add to this problem. If the sewer line is blocked, then the wastewater cannot reach the main sewer network and will back up into your home.
After an inspection and if the sewer line is not damaged, we will use Hydro jets to blast water at high pressures to remove any blockage. Should the sewer line be damaged, we will undertake more complex repairs, and the type of repair will depend on the location and extent of the damage.
Your Toilet Keeps Blocking
People will use their toilets as trash cans, and it is little wonder that blockages occur. You should only flush water, human waste, toilet paper, and gentle toilet cleaners down a toilet. Items like wet wipes and sanitary products will not dissolve easily in water, and if not flushed away properly will hang around to cause a blockage. These materials may also be the cause of any clogs in the sewer line
Another error people make is to keep flushing the toilet to remove the blockage. If you do this too many times you are likely to cause an overflow and leave a nasty mess on your floor. Leave the clean-up to an experienced plumber from Craig’s Plumbing in NV. We will have the right protective clothing to protect ourselves from germs and bacteria.
Water Treatment Services
If you live in a hard water area, you are probably aware that minerals like calcium, iron, and magnesium can leave insoluble scale deposits in your water heater, washing machine, dishwater, and pipework. This will damage them over time. This scale can also add to any clogging problem that you may have.
We suggest that you have a water softener installed. This will remove any minerals or particulate matter in your water. It will stop the scale from forming and improve your water’s taste, and your skin and hair texture may also improve over time.
