Common Plumbing Problems and How to Avoid Them

Between your appliances and fixtures and your pipes, there are a few things that can go wrong with your plumbing. Your toilet or sink might clog, your pipes might leak, and your toilet might run. Here’s a closer look at these common plumbing problems and how to avoid them.

Toilet and Sink Clogs

As long as you understand how to use them, your toilets and sinks shouldn’t be clogged too frequently. Although these are 2 of the most common plumbing problems, they’re also some of the easiest to avoid. Make sure everyone in your home understands what should and should not go down the toilet. Avoid flushing diapers, feminine products, and just about everything besides bodily waste and toilet paper. As for your sink and garbage disposal, refrain from tossing any large scraps or leftovers in. Remember that soft foods like noodles can soak up water and clog your sink, so keep them out as well.

Leaky Pipes

A clog in your toilet or sink can be inconvenient, but it’s not too difficult to deal with. A leaky pipe tends to be a different story. No matter how big or small the leak is, it will continue to waste water until you do something about it. You’ll want to talk to your plumber, but first you should shut off the water source. Then you can run your faucet to remove the remaining water from the system. If you want to avoid this plumbing issue in the first place, check on your pipes regularly and keep them warm in the winter.

Running Toilet

Some toilet repairs are extensive, but a running toilet usually just needs a new flapper. If you want to keep your flapper fully operational, commit to plumbing maintenance. Handle your flush toggle with care to make sure all of the toilet’s internal pieces stay intact.

If you encounter any of these plumbing problems, contact All Plumbing, Inc. and let us help. We specialize in garbage disposal repair and drain cleaning near Arlington, VA. You can reach us at (703) 525-7973 if you have any questions about our services.

Why You Should Call a Plumber at the First Sign of a Water Leak

When you notice a water leak in your plumbing system, you will want to address the problem right away. Waiting for too long to call a plumber can result in significant damage to your property and your overall plumbing system. There are a few reasons why water leaks require immediate attention. Even the smallest pinhole leak can waste hundreds of gallons of water in just a few short days. Neglecting to address your water leak can also lead to serious water damage, black mold, and other hazardous conditions.

For help repairing a leak in your plumbing system, be sure to give All Plumbing, Inc. a call. We proudly offer top rated plumbing services in Arlington, and our plumbing company will make sure that your pipes are properly sealed from leaks. With our help, you can rest assured that a hidden water leak is not damaging your plumbing system.

The Basics of New Water Heater Regulations

In the past few years, the government has passed new laws that affect water heater installation in the home. If you are curious about the regulations regarding your new water heater, watch this video from This Old House. In order to comply with federal law, your plumber will need to make sure that your new water heater is properly insulated. Large water heaters must also be equipped with fuel condensing technology.

When you are shopping for a new hot water heater near Arlington, get in touch with All Plumbing, Inc. Our company offers all of the plumbing services that you need to get a new water heater up and running in your home. For additional information about our plumbing services, give us a call at (703) 525-7973.

What You Can Do to Prevent Sewer Backups

A sewer line backup is one of the most serious plumbing emergencies that can occur on your property. More than a mere clogged toilet, a sewer line backup compromises the main waste disposal line for your entire household. By practicing preventative plumbing care, you can help to avoid this plumbing emergency. Let’s take a look at what homeowners can do to prevent sewer backups.

Watch What Goes Down the Drain

Many sewer line clogs start with improper use of toilets and drains throughout the home. If a member of your family chooses to flush cooking grease, harsh chemicals, or solid objects down the drain, these materials can easily get clogged in your sewer line. In order to protect your sewer line from a clog, you should make sure that the only materials that are going down your toilet drains are human waste and toilet paper.

Plant New Trees Carefully

Your sewer line will typically run from your home, through your backyard, and to the municipal sewer. When you are planning a new landscaping project for your property, you will want to make sure that you plant trees far enough away from your sewer line. If a tree’s roots grow through the sewer line as they mature, they can cause major clogging.

Install a Backflow Prevention Valve

If you are seeking total peace of mind that your home is protected from a sewage backup in your basement or interior spaces, you will want to ask your plumber to install a backflow prevention valve in your home. The backflow prevention valve will allow wastewater to flow out of your home, but will close up if a clog or blockage is detected.

If you are in need of emergency plumbing services near Arlington, do not hesitate to get in touch with All Plumbing, Inc. Our team can provide you with prompt sewer line repair, and we will make sure that you receive all of the plumbing services that you need to return your home’s sewer line to safe operating condition. Call (703) 525-7973 to schedule your next plumbing appointment.

How You Can Benefit from Waterproofing Your Basement

If you are seeking a plumbing and household improvement project that will provide you with a great return on your investment, you may want to consider scheduling basement waterproofing services. During a basement waterproofing procedure, your plumber will make sure that your home’s concrete foundation is completely water tight and sealed from the outside. Let’s review three different ways that basement waterproofing can benefit your home.

Prevent Toxic Mold

Toxic black mold poses a serious health hazard to you and your family members. Rather than waiting for a toxic black mold problem to develop on your property, you can prevent mold from growing in the first place by scheduling basement waterproofing services. With basement waterproofing, you can help to keep mold-inducing moisture out of your basement space entirely. As a result, the health and wellbeing of your family will be protected.

Avoid Structural Damage

Foundation damage is one of the most significant and costly household problems to repair. If you want to make sure that your home’s foundation remains in sound condition for the duration of the time that you own your home, you may want to consider scheduling basement waterproofing. Basement waterproofing services are your foundation’s best line of defense against water damage.

Increase Energy Efficiency

During the upcoming spring and summer seasons, your air conditioner will remove moisture and humidity from your household’s air. If your basement has a hidden water leak, you may find that your air conditioner must use even more energy to keep your home’s indoor spaces cool and dry. Ultimately, basement waterproofing can decrease your home’s humidity and help your air conditioner operate with better efficiency.

For additional information about the benefits of basement waterproofing, contact All Plumbing, Inc. by calling (703) 525-7973. From toilet repair to sewer repair and more, our company offers a variety of different plumbing services in Arlington. Our team looks forward to helping you keep your basement clean and dry throughout every season of the year.

Could You Have a Sewer Line Problem?

The occasional clogged drain repair can be common, especially in bathtubs where hair and soap scum accumulate. However, a clogged sewer line is not as common, and it can affect your home’s entire plumbing system. Here are some common signs that you may need a sewer line repair:

  • If your toilets are continually clogging or draining slowly, then you may have a clogged sewer line. You may even notice wastewater backing up into your toilets. This water will likely appear brown or yellow, and it may smell foul.
  • If you notice your lawn or areas on your property feel spongy or smell like sewage, then you may have a cracked sewer line. When this occurs, wastewater is leaking in your yard and creating hazardous conditions on your property.
  • If your other plumbing fixtures—such as sinks or tubs—back up when you flush the toilet, then call a plumber to locate the clogged sewer line.

Sewer line repair near Arlington, VA is a serious matter, and it should only be handled by the experts at All Plumbing, Inc. We have several plumbing services to offer you, including trenchless sewer line repair, so call us at (703) 525-7973 to get started.

Answering Your Questions About Clogged Drains

Clogged drains can be a hassle in your home, especially if you do not use the proper techniques to clear them. The best solution for clogs is to call your local plumber, who may come out for a service call or simply provide answers to questions on clearing the drain on your own. Read on for your plumber’s answers to your questions about clogged drains.

Can I use a liquid unclogging solution?

You may be tempted to use an over-the-counter liquid solution for clogs, but this can be one of the most damaging methods to your pipes. These liquid unclogging solutions contain highly acidic chemicals that will erode the inside of your drains and pipes. While the solution may temporarily remove part of the mass clogging your drains, it will not remove all of it, and it will damage your plumbing at the same time, especially if you have older pipes.

What methods can I use to unclog a drain?

You may try to use a plunger to free up a clogged drain. However, this may not permanently solve your problem, especially if there is damage to your pipes. If your clogged drain is not fixed after plunging it, or it continues to drain slowly, then call your plumber to use a professional plumbing snake that will remove the clog.

How can I prevent future clogs?

Prevention is crucial to avoid continual clogged drain repairs. To prevent clogs—no matter where they occur in your house—ensure that unnecessary items do not go down the drain. Place mesh coverings over all of your drains to catch debris and hair before it goes into the pipes. Never put grease, oil, or large chunks of food in your garbage disposal or kitchen sink. These easy steps will ensure that your drains remain clog-free.

Call your All Plumbing Inc. plumbers serving Arlington, VA at (703) 525-7973. We can address your clogged drains or other plumbing concerns with our comprehensive plumbing services. We have over 40 years in the industry, so trust us to help unclog your drains and restore your plumbing.

What Are the Signs of a Plumbing Leak?

Plumbing leaks can be hard to detect, especially if they are hidden behind walls or underneath sink cabinets. However, water stains, mold, and warped floors are all common signs that you have a plumbing leak. Let’s get a closer look at these common signs.

Water Stains

Water stains are a common sign of a plumbing leak. Water stains can appear anywhere, such as on your walls, ceiling, or cabinets. They will often appear yellowish to brownish in color, and they can show up far away from the initial leak. Since water can travel through various housing materials, you may not notice a water stain until your plumbing leak has become significant. If you notice an old or musty smell coming from a nearby plumbing fixture or a water stain, then it is likely the leak is hidden and has been causing damages for a while.

Mold

There are several signs of mold that can signal a plumbing leak. Mold often grows in warm, damp environments, which could be under your sink cabinets, in your basement, or behind your walls. If you notice a musty smell or clusters of mold spores in these areas, then you may have a nearby leak. You may also experience health symptoms commonly associated with mold. If you or a family member notice an increase in asthma symptoms, allergies, or respiratory issues, then you may have mold growing in your house.

Flooring Damages

You may have a plumbing leak if your flooring appears warped, stained, or damaged. Carpet, wood, or engineered wood are the most susceptible flooring materials that will show signs of water damage. If you notice the flooring around your kitchen or bathrooms is showing uncommon signs of damage, then call a residential plumber to inspect your pipes.

If you have noticed signs of a plumbing leak, then you need the expert plumbing services of All Plumbing Inc. With our vast experience and advanced plumbing technology in Arlington, VA, we can locate and correct your leak. Please call us at (703) 525-7973 to schedule an appointment.

Maintaining Your Garbage Disposal

Your garbage disposal is one of the most important elements of your kitchen plumbing system. By taking the time to clean and maintain your garbage disposal at regular intervals, you can help to prevent clogs and other issues in your kitchen sink. One of the essential steps of garbage disposal maintenance is to make sure that you only put approved items down the drain. You can also keep your garbage disposal running great by sharpening its blades using a combination of rock salt and ice. At least once a year, you may also want to have your disposal inspected by a professional plumber.

For answers to your questions about garbage disposal repair, get in touch with All Plumbing Inc. We offer quality plumbing in Arlington, and our plumbers can assist you with your garbage disposal installation. Give us a call at (703) 525-7973 to learn more about how we can help you protect and maintain the plumbing in your home.

The Process of Replacing a Drain Stopper

Your bathtub is equipped with a stopper, which allows you to prevent water from flowing down the drain. If you are having trouble filling your tub, you may need to hire a plumber to replace your stopper system. In this video, you will take a quick look at the process of replacing a stopper in a tub. By carefully disassembling your existing stopper, your plumber can remove the broken unit and replace it with a new system.
