Emergency Water Leak

Copper 1 inch water leak

Copper 1 inch water leak

By the look for things you can tell this isn’t normal or maybe even suppose to happen. But guess again this happens each and everyday. It’s a nightmare if your plumbing isn’t updated or if you don’t have the proper shut off’s.

This issue could have been solved easily if they had a shut off that worked but instead they had to call the city at night for an emergency to shut the water off. It’s never fun to have a shower coming into your house other then through your bathtub shower head. The force of that water coming through the pipe was stronger then what comes through your shower head.

be careful and be on top of as much plumbing as you can in your home. Some things you can’t help but old neglected drains and pipes is something you should consider addressing before it’s too late.

This is what we try to prevent

Tree roots are poison in any sewer system but fortunately if you act quick you can maintain them for years if it’s not to late. Make sure you clean you line before this happens to you. Read below.

There are several sewer lines in the world we can help and prevent excavation but sooner or later something will go wrong. No one wants to spend money to repair their broken collapsed sewer line but you have no choice at that time. I wish we could predict when it will happen but we can’t. Customers much appropriate when our drain technicians open their sewer system cause then they know that digging is not needed “yet”. Excavating a section of pipe isn’t cheap by any means so try and plan and keep current on the condition of your sewer line yearly.

Call us today for annual main sewer line cleaning and see where your sewer lie falls on a scale 1-10.

The picture above shows the red arrow pointing at the a clump of thick tree roots that broken through the sewer pipe. When I drain technician suggests camera inspecting your sewer line there’s a reason for it. If your smart next time you have your sewer line cleaned get it video taped and see what condition your line is in. If you are lucky enough o have a good sewer line we suggest getting it televised every 3-4 years after to make sure it’s in tact. Think of it as an x-ray that dentist use to view the condition of your mouth.

Also, if your uncertain that the technician or company is leading you in the wrong direction ask your family and friends who’ve they have used in the past. make sure they were confident in there work and give them a call. You don’t always have to make decisions quick. Take time and do your due diligence.

Ken’s Sewer Service

Ken’s Sewer Service services both plumbing and drain cleaning. This weekend was a very unusual weekend in the plumbing business. Typically weekends are quite due to the majority of people that think plumbers cost more. Most people with plumbing problems wait until Monday to call in and schedule an appointment. This weekend with over 15 emergency service calls it was extremely busy for a drain cleaning and plumbing business.

Thank you to all the clients that called in and put their trust in our company.

Laundry Tubs Repair

There are so many different types of laundry tubs to choose from.

Old cement laundry tubs are now being replaced with plastic tubs. The old cement laundry tubs clog up more and some people as well don’t like the sight of them. People I’d say these days like the new sleek look. When choosing laundry tubs you have to decide between a double or single tub. In some cases the space you have will decide for you. One load of laundry will only fill up 1 single laundry tub. Don’t feel like you need to get a double just cause you already have one. Maybe it’s time to go with a single laundry tub and save space for shelves or anything else.
When going to buying a laundry tub faucet the only rule I have is don’t buy cheap. Spend at least $150 on a laundry tub faucet. This is a faucet that will last for years.
Call Ken’s Sewer Service to break up your old laundry tubs, install your new tub and faucet or repair your existing ones.

This year instead of guessing what gifts your loved ones want, buy them a plumbing gift certificate.
If you know a friend that has a slow drain or a faucet/toilet that leaks non-stop giving them a plumbing gift certificate to pay for part of their repairs is the right way to go. Your friends will greatly appreciate this gift.
Here’s how it works:
At the time of scheduling an appointment for a friend you’ve decided to buy the plumbing gift certificate for, please call in with your visa information. Additional costs of job apply.
We look forward to hearing from your.
