Simple Changes You Can Make to Conserve Water

We take many things for granted in life, and water is one prime example. Through our plumbing appliances, our gardens, and our diets, we use up a great deal of it. Watch this video for simple changes you can make to conserve water.

The global population is constantly increasing, but water use is increasing at a faster rate. Try switching out coffee for tea, cheeseburgers for salads, and wine for beer, as these alternatives use less water. You can also switch to a low-flow showerhead and upgrade to an efficient dishwasher. Even drinking a bottle of water instead of a bottle of soda can ultimately bring down water usage.

Water conservation is crucial, and All Plumbing, Inc. can help. Our plumbing services in Arlington, VA keep your systems efficient, and we can help you choose more environmentally friendly appliances. Call our plumbing contractors at (703) 525-7973 today.

Sewer Main Drains: What Homeowners Need to Know

You might not see it often, but your sewer main drain is an integral component to your plumbing system. Just because it’s out of sight doesn’t mean it should be out of mind, and preventative maintenance can increase its effectiveness. Read on and see what homeowners should know about sewer main drains.

How to Fix a Clog

The way you fix your sewer main clog depends on whether you have a main cleanout fitting. If you do, you can use a sewer drain snake to break up the obstruction and get your plumbing system operational again. If you don’t have a main cleanout fitting, you might need more than a sewer drain snake to fix the problem. In this case you should call your plumbing professional and find out how to proceed.

Ways to Prevent Obstructions

You’ll never have to fix a sewer main clog if you don’t end up experiencing one in the first place, which is why prevention is so essential. Sometimes sewer mains become clogged due to tree roots in the yard growing through the piping. This is something to keep in mind if you have trees in your yard. You can also prevent plumbing obstructions by using your system properly. Don’t flush feminine products or diapers down the toilet, and keep grease and oil out of the garbage disposal to prevent clogs.

When to Replace the Main Line

When your main line starts clogging up on a regular basis, it’s probably time for a new one. Replacement isn’t free, but you won’t have to keep spending money to repair a system that continuously breaks down. If you’re not sure if it’s time to replace your main line or not, you can have your plumber come over and perform an inspection.

If you have any questions about your sewer main drains, call the All Plumbing, Inc. pros at (703) 525-7973. Our plumbing company near Arlington, VA can offer you all the help you need to keep your sewer main drains in top shape, so visit our website for more information.

Why You Shouldn't Ignore a Leaky Faucet

A leaky faucet won’t fix itself, so ignoring it won’t do any good. You’ll waste water, which brings down the efficiency of your plumbing system, and the leaking water can lead to mold growth as it worsens. Read ahead and find out exactly why you shouldn’t ignore a leaky faucet.

A Leak Wastes Water

By the time you notice a plumbing leak, you may have already lost a great deal of water. Since leaks don’t go away on their own, even the smallest leaks can cause a significant amount of waste. The dripping of the faucet maybe annoying, but it becomes a lot more frustrating when you associate each drip with money going down the drain. You’re still paying for the water that drips out of your faucet, even when it’s fully turned off, so call your plumber to have it checked out.

Leaks Lead to Mold

Faucets leak for many reasons, and they also suggest that you might have other plumbing problems. If there’s also a leak in the piping under your sink, you might have moisture accumulating in the cabinetry. Dark, damp environments help mold grow, which means your leaky faucet might be affecting your indoor air quality and the sanitation of your home. Rather than ignoring the leak and letting it go on, take care of it so you can save money and protect yourself from mold.

The Leak Can Get Worse

There are few problems that miraculously fix themselves, and a leaky faucet is not one of them. If you want your faucet to stop leaking, you need to act and call your plumber. If you don’t, the leak will only get worse, causing you to waste more water and putting you at a bigger risk for water damage and mold growth.

Instead of ignoring your leaky faucet, contact your plumber serving Arlington, VA. All Plumbing, Inc. can fix up your leak with prompt, professional service. See what we can do by giving us a call at (703) 525-7973.

Spotlight on Trenchless Sewer Line Technology

A problem with your sewer line can be big trouble for your plumbing, and there was a time when it only led to expensive and invasive repairs. Thanks to trenchless sewer line repair, there’s a more convenient option on the market. Continue reading as we put the spotlight on trenchless sewer line technology.

If your sinks, toilets, and tubs have been clogging, draining slowly, or backing up, you might have a sewer line problem. Whereas plumbers previously had to dig up your line to check it out, this excavation is no longer necessary. Trenchless sewer repair uses a camera to inspect the inside of your sewer line without having to dig it up. This is a much less extensive process, which means it can be done quickly and affordably. Additionally, your lawn gets to stay completely intact while you figure out what the problem is.

For more information about trenchless sewer line repair, contact All Plumbing, Inc. to learn about our services. We are plumbers serving Arlington, VA who specialize in hot water heaters, waterproofing, and toilet repair. Learn more by visiting our website or calling us at (703) 525-7973.

What Is the Difference Between Water Pressure and Water Flow?

Water pressure and water flow are 2 terms that are often used interchangeably, even though they don’t mean the same thing. Knowing the differences can help you better understand your plumbing system. Watch this video for a look at the difference.

You can easily measure water pressure with a pressure gauge. This tool will tell you how much pressure is being used to move water throughout your pipes. Water flow describes how quickly the water comes out of the pipes, and it may depend on how many appliances are in use as well as the size of the connecting pipes.

At All Plumbing, Inc., we know plumbing in Arlington, VA inside and out. We work with sump pumps, septic tanks, and garbage disposals. Please give us a call at (703) 525-7973 or head over to our website to see what we can do.

Should You Choose a Tankless or Conventional Water Heater?

Conventional water heaters were once the obvious choice, but the tankless option has been making waves. If you’re not sure which one is best for you, think about how they differ in terms of efficiency, space, and versatility. Keep reading and see if you should choose a tankless or conventional water heater for your home’s plumbing needs.

Efficiency

Whether you’re dealing with HVAC equipment, lighting, or plumbing appliances, efficiency is important for your home or business place. Efficiency is one of the big factors that differentiates tankless and conventional water heaters. Conventional water heaters come with tanks that hold and heat water until you need it for your dishwasher, shower, or sink. Tankless water heaters heat your water on the spot. When you have a basin of hot water that’s waiting to be used, you’ll deal with standby heat loss and a loss of efficiency. Since tankless heaters don’t operate this way, they tend to be the more efficient option.

Space

Tankless water heaters are better at conserving space than conventional units for the same reason that they’re more efficient: They don’t have a tank. You need adequate room to install a conventional heater, whereas you might not need much room at all for your tankless unit. Think about the size of your space. If you’ve got plenty of room to spare, then you should be fine with a conventional water heater in terms of space. If you don’t have the room or you want to keep things neat and open, tankless might be the way to go.

Versatility

Conventional water heaters can heat multiple appliances, but tankless heaters come in different configurations. You can choose a model that heats your whole house or one that only works for certain appliances. Most models will give you a range of options in terms of where you can put them, as well.

If you’re still not sure if you need a tankless or conventional water heater in Arlington, VA, call All Plumbing, Inc. at (703) 525-7973 for help. We’re also happy to handle clogged toilets, waterproofing services, and garbage disposal installation. See our website for more information.

FAQs About Garbage Disposal Maintenance

Your garbage disposal needs regular care, which includes using it properly. Some people run into plumbing problems because the water they use isn’t at the right temperature, while others experience clogs because they put in the wrong kinds of materials. There’s always someone who can help you, so read ahead for FAQs about garbage disposal maintenance.

Should I use cold or hot water?

When you run the water as you use your garbage disposal, you need to pay attention to the temperature. Cold water is best for your unit’s efficiency, and hot water can cause problems for your plumbing system. The problem deals with the food products that are already in your pipes. If you run hot water down the disposal, it will melt fats that you’re grinding. This sounds like it might be helpful, but it can make plumbing problems much worse. Hot water moves the fats down the drain, but the melted food debris will ultimately build up in your plumbing system. This leads to clogs, obstructions, and a call to your plumber.

Why is my disposal malfunctioning?

In many cases, garbage disposals malfunction because they aren’t being used properly. The best type of maintenance is preventative maintenance, and part of this is knowing what you shouldn’t put in your disposal. Small food scraps that can easily be broken down are the best candidate. Bones, large chunks of foods, and grease are all potential hazards to your disposal and your plumbing system.

Who can help me with maintenance?

If you find that you’re having trouble caring for your garbage disposal and you’re not sure what to do differently, you can always call the professionals. Your plumber can check your pipes for obstructions and test your garbage disposal to make sure it’s working properly. When in doubt, call your specialist.

Increasing the Longevity of Your Copper Piping

When your copper piping lasts for a long time, you won’t have to worry about replacing the components of your plumbing system. Certain elements can reduce its lifespan, however, so check out this video on increasing the longevity of your copper piping.

Copper will corrode when it’s exposed to water, so copper piping comes with a protective film on the interior. Leaving the water off for extended periods of time can also contribute to this problem, so avoid this whenever possible. Sometimes, it’s the velocity of the waterflow that erodes the protective film, and cold water is more likely to carry residue through the pipes. Work with your plumber and take protective steps to avoid these issues.

All Plumbing, Inc. is made up of top-notch plumbers serving Arlington, VA. We can help with your hot water heater, garbage disposal, or clogged toilets. View our website or call (703) 525-7973 for more information.

Why You Should Only Hire a Licensed and Bonded Plumber

Not all plumbers are equally qualified, and it’s your responsibility to do the research and seek out the true professionals. If you want to be as safe as possible, find a plumber who is both licensed and bonded. Here’s why you should only hire plumbers of this caliber.

Importance of Licensing

If you want to make sure a plumber has gone through enough training and education to get the job done right, ask him or her about licensure. A plumbing license is proof that the professional in question is indeed a professional and has gone through the necessary steps to provide quality services. In some cases, plumbers even have to go through continuing education to keep their licenses. Licenses also cover background checks and proof of insurance. Even hiring an unlicensed plumber is against the law in certain areas, so make sure you know enough about the contractor before making the hire.

Importance of Bonding

Like licensure, bonding is also a must when it comes to professional plumbing. Bonding and insurance protect the plumber and the homeowner when unexpected damage takes place. This means that no one has to pay out of pocket, which creates a more comfortable environment for both the contractor and the homeowner.

Finding a Plumber

A licensed and bonded plumber will be sure to do the job the right way, but not all plumbers accurately represent themselves. That’s why it’s key that you look into a plumbing service before accepting the offer. If you ask a plumber about licensing and insurance and he or she seems to evade the conversation, make sure you get a straight answer before getting underway. Remember that unlicensed and unbonded plumbers might not even be legally allowed to service your home or workplace, so make the right decision when hiring a professional.

Are you looking for a licensed and bonded plumber serving Arlington, VA? Call All Plumbing, Inc. at (703) 525-7973. From toilets to hot water heaters, we can keep your plumbing appliances running properly. Visit our website or stop by and see us to learn more.
