  • Down the Drain: 3 Possible Reasons You Can’t Keep Your Drain Smelling Fresh

    We’ve all heard them — horrible drain stories.  Whether it’s losing a piece of jewelry down the sink or an unpleasant odor that you just can’t shake, drains can be a big hassle. It’s not uncommon for recalcitrant shower drains to hold on to clumps of hair, which are notorious for holding on to odors.  There are a number of reasons your drains might be paining you, but here are the three most common:

    1. Your kitchen sink needs a bath.

    If you have a garbage disposal, then your kitchen sink probably smells strange on a fairly frequent basis.  This is because people often let the power of being able to pulverize virtually anything go to their heads.  Ergo, step one of getting rid of that weird smell is to start scraping your dishes into the actual garbage.  In addition, it’s best to do an odor-neutralizing treatment at least once a week.  You can find numerous recipes online, but they all involve baking soda, boiling water, and vinegar in some configuration.


    2. Your shower drain needs some compassion.

    We don’t usually think of hair as contributing to a stench problem, but leave it down the drain long enough and it will smell purely awful.  Your plumber can easily fix a hair clog, but they’re totally preventable with some common sense measures .  Make sure to brush your hair before you take a shower.  This will get rid of the loose stuff; you’ll have to pick up anything else from the shower floor once you’re done.


    3. Your basement drains need an exorcism

    The stench of unwashed drains is a smelly problem that plagues so many basements, but that doesn’t mean that a stink is inevitable.  To keep things in tip-top shape, take yourself down to the basement every three months or so and remove the drain covers .  Pull out any buildup or scrub it off with an old toothbrush, and then follow up by pouring a bucket of hot water down each drain.  Once the water has worked its way down, take a fifteen minute break and then finish with the same sort of treatment you gave your kitchen sink.


    Of course, sometimes all the prevention in the world doesn’t matter—your drains stink, and you have no idea why.  If you’ve got a mysterious plumbing issue (or one that’s just gotten away from you), then you need to contact All Plumbing, Inc.  The plumbers here at All Plumbing not only have extensive experience with drain cleaning, they can also perform hydrojetting or repair your sewer line and your water main.  For more information, visit our website or call (703) 525-7973 today.

  • Plumbing and Drain Tips for Bathroom Remodeling

    This video features a totally stripped-down bathroom—all we can see are pipes.  The narrator takes us through the plumbing required for a toilet and a shower: The items are connected, and all that’s separating them is a so-called “P trap.” The narrator also talks about changing out some piping that’s no longer up to code.  Because the code has changed, the plumber has to fix it while it’s exposed—however, there is a shortcut.  This particular job doesn’t require that the old pipe be removed, just that it be sealed off.  Once the old piping is hidden behind new drywall, the narrator notes, “no one will ever know it was ever there.”


    As interesting as it may be to learn a little about plumbing, it isn’t really the sort of home repair that a layperson should perform.  After all, if things go wrong, your house can become really unsanitary really quickly. 


    It’s best to let the professionals handle all your plumbing needs, and no company is more professional than All Plumbing, Inc .  All Plumbing can assist you with drain cleaning, water main repair, hydrojetting, and sewer line repair.  For more information, visit our website or call (703) 525-7973.




  • 3 Signs It’s Time To Replace Your Sewer Line

    At one point or another in every homeowner’s life, sewer problems will happen.  It’s a simple fact of life.  If your sewer line needs to be replaced, you’ll know very quickly.  It’s usually because something fairly unsanitary and unpleasant happens.  You’ll want to call your local sewer line repair company as far as possible if:


    1. Sewage backs up into your house.

    This is the most obvious sign that something’s gone wrong with your sewer line.  Maybe your line is choked with tree roots, maybe it’s old, maybe it’s just plain persnickety—it doesn’t really matter what the reason is, because the end result is always going to be the same:  Your home is on its way to becoming a toxic waste dump !  If this happens, then call a plumber immediately.  This is not a project you can do yourself.


    2. There’s a mysterious stench outside your house.

    If your kids don’t want to play outside anymore because the lawn stinks, then we’ve got some bad news for you: Your sewer line is probably failing.


    3. Your drains gurgle and refuse to empty.

    Sometimes drains take forever to drain or make weird gurgling sounds because they’re chock full of strange substances; this is why it’s important to inspect—and clean—your drains on a regular basis.  If you’ve taken a look at every drain in the house and there isn’t a single one that’s clogged with hair or other unsavory things, then in all probability, a faulty sewer line is likely the culprit.  These symptoms aren’t nearly as dramatic as the first two, but that doesn’t mean your should ignore them.  Just thank your lucky stars that you caught the issue before things got nasty.


    If you’re in need of sewer line maintenance or repair, then you need to get in contact with All Plumbing, Inc.  All Plumbing can help you with your faulty sewer lines, water main repair, hydrojetting, and drain cleaning.  For all your plumbing needs, visit our website or call (703) 525-7973 today

  • Backflow Preventer: 3 Reasons Why You Need One Installed in Your Home

    Toilet Cleaning with a Plunger.

    A backflow preventer is exactly what it sounds like: It prevents contaminated or polluted water from flowing back into a clean water source.  Many businesses are obligated by law to install and maintain backflow preventers, but it’s not always required of residential property owners.  So why should you have it done?  Well, here are three excellent reasons:

     1. You’re relying on a private source of water.

    If your water is coming from a well instead of a public water source, then you definitely need to get a backflow preventer installed.  You definitely don’t want the sewage from your bathrooms or the water from a gardening irrigation system getting into your well.  Speaking of which, here comes our second reason.

     2. You have an in-ground irrigation system.

    Irrigation systems are great, especially when the weather’s hot and dry and you’d like to keep your garden from dying.  But if you’ve got in-ground sprinklers, then you’re definitely going to need a backflow preventer whether you’re hooked up to the public water system or not. No one wants to drink grass clippings!

     3. You’re the only one who knows what’s on your property.

    Public water sources do their best, but no one knows exactly what’s on your property and what it’s hooked up to, except for you.  If you’ve made significant additions to your home—additions that are hooked up to the water supply in some way—then it’s your responsibility to make sure that you installed as many backflow preventers as necessary.

     If you need to have a backflow preventer installed, then you should get in touch with the experts at All Plumbing, Inc.  All Plumbing can help you sort through your backflow issues and take care of other plumbing problems; after all, our plumbers have experience with water main and sewer line repair, as well as hydrojetting and drain cleaning.  For more information, visit our website or call (703) 525-7973 today.
