  • Locating Your Main Water Shut-Off Valve

    If any pipes or appliances suddenly spring a water leak, it’s important that you shut off the main water shut-off valve as quickly as possible. Look for your water shut-off valve within your house, somewhere along the perimeter and possible behind an access door. Failing that, you can shut off the water supply by turning off the valve on the house side of the water line at the water meter near the street. If you cannot find your water shut-off valve, or if the valve is broken or damaged in any way, contact a plumber in Arlington for assistance before a plumbing emergency strikes.

    In the event of a plumbing emergency, stay calm and call All Plumbing, Inc. We are a 24-hour emergency plumbing service based in Arlington, VA.

  • The Process of Degreasing a Sewer Line

    When your sewer line becomes clogged, your best option is to contact a plumbing company in Arlington that specializes in drain cleaning and hydro-jetting . Once your sewer line is flowing freely again, it’s up to you to keep it clear unless you want to call out your plumber again. Grease is one of the most common causes of sewer line clogs, so today we will be sharing some tips on keeping your line grease-free.

    Introduce Enzymes in the Sewer Line
    Enzymes are natural living bacteria colonies that eat grease and prevent buildups in your sewer line. Once introduced into your sewer system, enzymes will continue to reproduce and grow. Before introducing enzymes in the sewer line, run hot water down the drain for a few minutes to slightly loosen the grease. Pour the enzyme solution into the sewer line and repeat this procedure once per month.

    Pour Baking Soda Down the Drains
    Another easy way to keep your drains grease-free is to pour baking soda into your down on a monthly basis. Baking soda will eat away grease particles that are stuck inside the sewer line before they can cause major blockages in the pipe. You can add white vinegar to the baking soda for an even more effective DIY sewer line cleaner.

    Don’t Pour Grease in the Sink
    The best way to  prevent grease buildup  in your sewer line is to avoid disposing of grease down the drain in the kitchen. Instead, pour grease in a disposable container and throw away with the trash when it cools and hardens.

    Remember, these tips can help keep your sewer line running free but they aren’t very effective at removing actual clogs in the pipes. That’s where the plumbers at All Plumbing, Inc. come in. We use the latest equipment to diagnose and  remove sewer line clogs . Our hydro-jetting, video inspection, and drain cleaning services extend to residential and commercial customers in Arlington and throughout Northern Virginia.

  • Finding the Source of a Plumbing Leak

    A plumbing leak has the potential to cause thousands of dollars in water damage. Over time, a leak can also waste hundreds of gallons of water—which means higher water bills. Unfortunately, plumbing leaks are not always easy to spot. If you want to avoid expensive water damage and keep your bills low, you need to learn how to spot the early signs of a plumbing leak. If you suspect you have a leak, use these tips to trace the leak to confirm the problem before calling your Arlington plumber .

    Confirm the Leak
    Before you go leaking for a broken pipe or leaky faucet, confirm that you do indeed have a leak. To do this, turn off every faucet, appliance, and fixture in your home that uses water and mark where the needle is pointing on your water meter. Leave everything off for about eight hours, and read the meter again. If the needle has moved, this indicates a leak somewhere in your plumbing system. 

    Inspect Common Leak Areas
    Now that you know you have a  plumbing leak  on your hands, the next step is to begin searching for the source. Open cabinet doors beneath sinks and look for moisture at the joints at the bottom of the P trap. Examine the flooring around fixture and appliances that use water. Cracked or warped flooring or spongy spots in the floor indicate a possible leak. You should also inspect exposed pipes in basements and crawlspaces.
