Answering Your Questions About Hydro Jetting

Hydro jetting hasn’t been around forever, so you might not be entirely sure what it even means. This kind of plumbing service can clear out your sewer line in a convenient and efficient manner. Inspections can be done with cameras, and you won’t have to deal with invasive techniques. Read on to get the answers to your hydro jetting questions.

Do I need hydro jetting?

The purpose of hydro jetting is to clear out any obstructions in your plumbing pipes. Your pipes are susceptible to clogs from tree roots, leaves, and cleaners like soaps and detergents. You will probably experience a higher risk for clogs if you have a lot of trees on your property, because their roots will be attracted to the wastewater inside of the pipes. Hydro jetting shoots a pressurized stream of water through your pipes to break through these obstructions. Call your plumber if you suspect there might be something clogging up your pipes.

How does inspection work?

There’s no reason to invest in a plumbing service that you don’t need, which is why inspection should always come first. If you’re wondering if you need hydro jetting services for your home or workplace, your plumber will start by inspecting your pipes with a video camera. This makes it possible to learn about the condition of your pipes without having to excavate them. The video camera lets you check out their insides remotely, making the whole process substantially easier, quicker, and less invasive.

What are the alternatives?

Hydro jetting isn’t the only option for clearing out clogged plumbing pipes, but it’s often the most effective. You can also try snaking the pipes, but sometimes this technique only fixes the problem temporarily. It might also require a more invasive procedure than hydro jetting.

If you have any questions about plumbing in Arlington, VA, feel free to call All Plumbing, Inc. at (703) 525-7973. You can count on us for all your residential and commercial plumbing needs, and you can find out exactly what we can do by visiting our website.

Tips for Preventing Restaurant Drain Clogs

You might not think about your commercial plumbing system very frequently, but you will if you run into a problem with it. That’s why you should take preventative measures and prevent these problems from coming up at all. Continue reading for some tips for preventing restaurant drain clogs.

Keep Grease and Oils Out

It’s a common mistake to put grease and oils down your drain, as people often think that running hot water will be enough to melt them and keep them down. While hot water may melt your oils, fats, and greases temporarily, you’ll still have to deal with them once they solidify in your drains. Clogs and backups will set your restaurant back, but you can avoid them by keeping these materials out of your plumbing system. You and your employees should be disposing of these cooking byproducts in a way that won’t harm your plumbing.

Work with a Commercial Plumber

The longer you wait to solve a commercial plumbing problem, the more likely it will be that it continues to get worse. A commercial plumber will know how to deal with any problem that comes up, so you can solve the issue without having to close your doors and lose business. A quality plumber will help you keep your drains clear, and your expert can also teach you and your employees how to use them properly to avoid problems in general.

Maintain Your Drains

Grease traps let you empty out your oils and fats without tossing them down the drain and causing plumbing issues. You need to maintain your drains, though, or they won’t pull through for you when you need them. Think about how often you rely on your grease trap when you’re deciding if it’s time to clean it out, and call your plumber if you need help.

Without prompt clogged drain repair in Arlington, VA, your business could be in trouble. Contact All Plumbing, Inc. when you’re dealing with a plumbing emergency, or visit our website to find out how we can help. Call our office at (703) 525-7973 if you have any questions.

The Importance of Battery Backup for Your Sump Pump

Much like an efficient gutter system, a sump pump will remove water from your residential space. You need an alternate source to power your sump pump when the power goes out, however, so having a battery is always helpful. Continue reading for a quick look at the importance of a battery backup for your sump pump.

If your sump pump stops working in the middle of the night, you might wake up to a flood. This can also lead to water damage and a mold problem, so it’s best to equip your sump pump with a battery backup. A battery backup ensures that your sump pump will continue to work, even if another power supply is cut off. This means you can still pump water out of your basement when the power goes out, so you won’t have to worry about water damage or flood problems.

Whenever there’s a problem with your sump pump near Arlington, VA, you shouldn’t hesitate to call All Plumbing, Inc. We specialize in affordable plumbing, so give us a call at (703) 525-7973 or check out our website to find out more about our plumbing company today.

Decoding Your Garbage Disposal

Your garbage disposal is not like your garbage can, so you need to discriminate between what you put in each one. Trying to stuff too much into your plumbing system is dangerous, so watch this video on decoding your garbage disposal.

A garbage can and a garbage disposal are different things. Grease, oil, and fats are fine to toss in your garbage can, but they create problems for your plumbing system if you put them in the garbage disposal. Peels from celery or potatoes can also get clogged up. Run your garbage disposal with 2 cups of ice and a cup of rock salt and vinegar if you have put grease in it.

Your garbage disposal and plumbing in Arlington, VA are only as good as you keep them, so call All Plumbing, Inc. at (703) 525-7973. No matter how well your garbage disposal installation went, you need to maintain your investment.

What Restaurants Should Look for in a Commercial Plumbing Service

You need a good commercial plumbing service in order to keep your restaurant up and running, so you need to take your time and choose the right one. Find a commercial plumbing service that offers the services you need and has the experience to get the job done, and make sure your contractor is reliable. Here’s what restaurants should look for in a commercial plumbing service.

Services

Not every plumbing company offers the same services, so it’s your job to know what you’re looking for when you look through your options. If you’re a restaurant looking for a commercial plumbing service, you need to know what the company can offer. Look for a commercial plumber who can fix your leaks, install your pipes, and perform any kind of repairs that might be warranted in the future. Whenever you’re installing something new or repairing a malfunctioning aspect of your plumbing system, you should have a commercial plumber perform the job.

Experience

A commercial plumbing service that has no actual experience in the industry might not be so helpful. When you’re looking for a plumber for your restaurant, experience should be at the top of your list of criteria. Plumbers who have experience in the industry are more capable of getting the job done properly. They have seen different types of plumbing problems and have been able to fix them, and they know the ins and outs of your system. Be sure to choose a plumbing company that already has its roots established.

Reliability

If you choose a commercial plumbing service that has been in business for a while, you can typically trust that you’re working with an experienced company. Your plumber should be able to service your particular area, and he or she should be available during your time of need.

Restaurants need plumbing in Arlington, VA just like residential homes do, and All Plumbing, Inc. can take care of both situations. We’ll take care of your septic tank and your garbage disposal installation. Browse our website or call us at (703) 525-7973 for more information.

The Homeowner's Guide to Dealing with Common Plumbing Emergencies

Plumbing emergencies can happen to anyone, but if you know how to deal with them, you can prevent a serious problem for your home. Clogged drains are common, and they can hold back your plumbing system in general, which means you get to avoid certain symptoms. Keep reading for a look at the homeowner’s guide to dealing with common plumbing emergencies.

Clogged Drains

Even with the best drainage system in the world, you will probably end up dealing with a clog at some point. Clogs can happen in your sink, your bathtub, or your toilet. If you can’t flush your toilet or drain your tub, grab a plunger or an auger. These tools can help you deal with your clog before it causes real problems for your plumbing system. You can end up clogging your toilet just by trying to flush too much toilet paper, but flushing more often than you think you should can help.

Effects on Your System

You need a functioning plumbing system, but an emergency will set you back. If you don’t deal with your plumbing emergency at the first sign, you could end up dealing with a more severe problem. This leads to more costly repairs, and it could take your bathroom out of commission for a little while, so deal with plumbing emergencies as soon as they arise.

Fixing the Problem

You can usually take care of a simple clog on your own, but more severe plumbing issues can be problematic. If you aren’t able to take care of the problem by yourself, you need to call your plumber. If you want to give it a go on your own, use a plunger or an auger to take care of clogs in your toilet or your sink. Then, you can flush out the wastewater and enjoy a better plumbing system.

If you’re in the midst of a plumbing emergency, you need the help of All Plumbing, Inc. You can reach us by calling us at (703) 525-7973. Look through our website for more on our sewer repair and emergency plumbing near Arlington, VA today.

What to Do When a Drain Clogs

You need your drains to move wastewater out of the house, but when materials build up in the pipes, you end up with a clog. Most clogs aren’t too severe, and can be handled with a plunger or an auger. You can always call your plumber if you need a professional hand. Here’s what to do when a drain clogs.

When your drain backs up, you can’t get rid of your wastewater. This is a common problem for some household sinks, bathtubs, and toilets. If you have a clogged toilet, stand over the toilet with a plunger. Push the plastic part of the plunger down into the bowl, release, and repeat. Augers might be helpful for sinks and bathtub drains, because the clog might be farther down the pipe. If you can’t alleviate the clog on your own, don’t hesitate to call your plumber.

All Plumbing, Inc. can help you out with your drain clog if you’re having trouble. Just give our plumbers serving Arlington, VA a call at (703) 525-7973. Look at our website and see how we can help with a clogged toilet, sink, or drain.

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.
