A Quick Look at Plumbing Traps

Is one of your appliances pulling water from your toilet? If so, then this may have something to do with your plumbing traps and plumbing vents. Watch this video to learn more about this type of plumbing problem.

Every plumbing feature is equipped with a plumbing trap to prevent sewer gas from coming up, and plumbing vents help water drain smoothly from your appliances. When a vent is missing or blocked, this can cause water draining from one appliance to pull water from another due to a vacuum effect. A vent introduces air into the system to relieve negative pressure and prevent the water seals in plumbing traps from being affected.

What Caused My Sewer Backup?

Several factors can affect your home’s plumbing and result in sewer line problems. Are you dealing with sewage backup and wondering if you need sewer repair or replacement? If so, then continue reading to learn about some of the most common causes of sewer backups.

Roots

Many homeowners are surprised to discover how much damage tree roots can inflict on their sewer line. Sensing moisture and nutrients, it’s common for tree roots to grow toward plumbing. Once the roots reach a pipe, they can sometimes work their way inside through a small opening and then continue growing. Eventually, the roots can damage the pipe or clog it up.

Debris

If your sewer line has what are called bellies, which are portions of piping that lay flat rather than slope away from your home, then they may be more prone to problems. Where the pipes lay flat, debris is more likely to collect and lead to a clog that causes a sewer backup in your home.

Erosion

If the ground around your home shifts, settles, or erodes for some reason, this can cause misalignments in your home’s drainage lines. These types of problems, referred to as offsets, can lead to sewer backups and clogs.

Time

If your plumbing system is old, then normal aging of the pipes could be to blame for the sewer backup that you’re experiencing. As pipes age, corrosion can lead to cracks and leaks that affect the line’s integrity and result in blockages.

Clogs

Finally, it’s important to be mindful of what you put down your garbage disposal or flush down your toilet. Over time, items like hair, diapers, napkins, and oils can lead to buildup and clogs in your sewer line. To help keep your drains running well, avoid pouring grease down your sink and using your toilets as waste bins.

If you need sewer line repair near Arlington, VA, then please call All Plumbing, Inc. at (703) 525-7973 to schedule a service appointment with one of our licensed plumbers.

Foolproof Tips for Hiring a Trustworthy Plumber

Whether you need emergency plumbing repairs or garbage disposal installation, choosing a qualified plumber to work with can help ensure that the job is done right and that you aren’t overcharged for the service. Keep reading for tips on hiring a trustworthy plumber.

Look for Licensure

It’s a requirement in most states that plumbers have a license. Before choosing a plumber to work on your home or business, find out if he or she is licensed. Taking this step helps ensure that the plumber you hire will have the training and experience needed to handle your plumbing issue professionally and successfully.

Ask About Insurance

To help protect both the plumber and yourself, it’s important only to hire a plumber that is insured. Insurance helps protect you both in case the plumber is injured while working on your property.

Inquire About Experience

Being trained and licensed is a good way to narrow the search for a trustworthy plumber, but it’s ideal to dig a little deeper and learn how long he or she has been working in the business. Keep in mind that larger companies are likely to have at least a few seasoned plumbers, and businesses that have been around for more than a few years often have a proven track record of quality service.

Consider the Cost

When finding the right plumber to work on your home or business, it’s a good idea to start the process by getting several estimates from promising professionals or companies. By acquiring a minimum of 3 estimates, you’ll be better positioned to avoid offers that seem too low or too high. Also, only work with a plumber that provides a warranty for his or her work.

Ask for References

Lastly, you can benefit from seeking out plumbers that have good references and customer reviews. A plumber that’s been in business should have no problem providing you with references to consider.

Are you looking for a trustworthy, certified, and licensed plumber near Arlington, VA? If so, then please contact the team at All Plumbing, Inc. by calling (703) 525-7973.

Tips for Teaching Kids What Should Go Down the Toilet

Kids don’t always pick up on new concepts immediately, so they might have trouble remembering what shouldn’t go down the toilet. Even if it takes a few tries, you should teach your child that the toilet is only for certain materials. Keep your plumbing in shape and continue on for tips.

There are many more materials that shouldn’t go down the toilet than ones that should. A good rule of thumb to teach your children is that only waste and toilet paper should go down the toilet. Anything that doesn’t fall into one of those categories should be kept away. Young kids might see the toilet as a fun place to play with their toys. Not only is this unsanitary for your child, but it can lead to a disaster for your plumbing—especially when the toys get flushed down the drain. Try to reinforce these rules with a reward system throughout the toilet training process.

Don’t forget to call All Plumbing, Inc. at (703) 525-7973 if you need toilet repair near Arlington, VA. Our plumbing services include water heater installation, garbage disposal repair, and emergency plumbing. Visit our website or stop by and see us for more information.

What Should Go In Your Garbage Disposal?

Knowing what should and should not go into your garbage disposal allows you to take care of it and avoid plumbing mishaps. There are also some extra steps you can take to keep your garbage disposal working efficiently. Watch this video to see what should go in your garbage disposal.

Grains like oatmeal and cereal, chopped up citrus rinds, and fruit and vegetable byproducts can all go into your garbage disposal. However, you should cut them up first so that they grind easily. You can put meat in your garbage disposal, but be sure to remove any bones or raw, sinewy pieces first, to protect your disposal blades.

Does Your Water Heater Need Maintenance?

There are few investments that you can make in life that require absolutely no maintenance. The better you maintain your water heater, the better your overall plumbing will work. Heaters that are old, leaking, or producing rusty water may be in particular need of maintenance. Keep reading to see if your water heater needs maintenance.

Your water heater is old.

While all water heaters and plumbing appliances need some level of maintenance, it’s a good idea to pay extra close attention to units that are getting up there in age. Since water heaters can last for a decade or more, you might lose track of how old yours is. Don’t worry if that’s the case. As long as you find the serial number on your water heater, you can determine how old it is. The first 3 digits of the serial number will indicate when it was manufactured. You can extend the lifespan of your old water heaters by providing the proper maintenance.

Your water heater is leaking.

If you check on your water heater and find that there’s a puddle of water underneath it, there are a couple of potential sources. Check the connections and fittings to see if they are tight and secure, and run your fingers along them to look for moisture. If it turns out that it’s a fitting or connection, just tighten it up and keep an eye on it. If the water heater itself is leaking, it might be time for a replacement.

Your water is rusty.

On a similar note, rusty water could be due to your pipes or your water heater. In this case, maintaining your plumbing system in general may solve the problem. Don’t automatically assume that your heater is at fault. Instead, call a professional to look at your pipes to see if you can focus on maintenance rather than replacement.

Do you need help maintaining your water heater in Arlington, VA? If so, you can call the plumbing experts at All Plumbing, Inc. at (703) 525-7973. Our specialists can also help you with garbage disposal installation and waterproofing, so check out our website to learn more about us.

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.

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.
