  • How Exactly Do Tankless Water Heaters Work?

    If you have ever run out of hot water in the middle of a shower, then you know about the limits of traditional, tank-based water heaters. If you are frequently running out of hot water, your plumber may recommend that you switch to a tankless water heater instead.

    Watch this video to learn about how tankless water heaters work. They provide hot water on demand, rather than heating a specific amount and storing it in a tank. As a result, they can alleviate any worries you have about insufficient hot water supplies.

    If you’re considering getting a tankless water heater in Arlington, VA, call All Plumbing, Inc. to see if going tankless is right for your home. Talk to one of our plumbers today by calling (703) 525-7973.

     

  • Common Causes of Sewer Main Damage

    Damaged sewer mains are a serious headache for homeowners. Fortunately, fixing them is no longer as disruptive and costly as it used to be, thanks to video camera inspections and trenchless sewer repairs. Using these techniques, your plumber can locate the source of the problem with your sewer main and repair or replace it without digging up your lawn and driveway. What causes damage to sewer lines in the first place? Here is a look at some common causes.

    Roots

Roots are frequently the culprits when sewer mains fail. Over time, roots can grow into the sewer main, causing cracks in the pipes. They can even breach pipes and grow through them completely. The older the trees are on your property, the more likely this is to happen, as root structures can grow many times wider than spread the of tree branch structure. When you are planting new trees on your property, make sure you plant them far enough away from your sewer main that they are unlikely to cause issues.

Aging

Eventually, all sewer main lines will need to be replaced. As pipes age, they start to crack and become weak, causing them to leak. How long your pipes last depends on what they are made of and whether they were installed correctly. The typical life expectancy of sewer lines is between 50 to 100 years, but lines can fail much sooner. Many plumbers replace sewer lines with PVC pipes today, which are expected to last for more than 100 years.

Offsets

Offsets occur when the joints where two pieces of pipes meet are no longer properly aligned. Offsets allow debris in the pipe to build up and eventually cause a blockage. There are many different things that can cause an offset, including the settling of soil around the pipe.

If you are noticing any warning signs that your sewer main could be failing, call All Plumbing, Inc. Our plumbers can use camera inspections to pinpoint the cause and trenchless technology to make repairs. To schedule a service call with a plumber in Arlington, VA, call (703) 525-7973.

  • How Trenchless Main Line Repairs Are Saving Homeowners Money

    If your water or sewer main line needs to be repaired, you will be relieved to know that the process is much easier—and less expensive—than it used to be. In the past, plumbers had to dig up your lawn, driveway, sidewalk, or any other part of your exterior space that housed your pipes. Once the main line was repaired, you would then be left with the expense of restoring things to normal. Fortunately, trenchless repairs have changed things for homeowners. Here is a look at how trenchless repairs are saving homeowners money.

    Less Digging

  • With trenchless repairs, instead of digging up your yard or busting the concrete or asphalt of your driveway to expose the entire mainline, your plumber only needs to dig one to two access holes. This strategy can save homeowners thousands of dollars. After repairs are made, there will be no need to have your lawn re-landscaped, new grass planted, or driveway or sidewalk repairs performed. Removing this expense is a game changer for homeowners who no longer have to put off having repairs made because they can’t afford to restore their property to normal afterwards.

    Less Labor

    Trenchless mainline repairs can be performed much faster than the old way of digging up pipes. Your plumbers will have less labor to perform when you get trenchless repairs, so the overall cost of the job is much lower. With trenchless repairs, jobs that would have required weeks of labor in the past can be completed in a just a few days. Small jobs can often be done in a single day.

    Longer Lifespan

    The pipe material used in trenchless repairs is cured in place and free of joints, allowing it to outlast other kinds of materials used for main lines. As a result, you will have fewer problems with your pipes that require repairs and your pipes can last significantly longer before they need to be replaced.

    All Plumbing, Inc. uses trenchless main repair to make the process easy and affordable for our customers. You can learn more about all of our affordable plumbing services in Arlington, VA by calling (703) 525-7973.

    If you ignore the signs of problems with your sewer line, then you could experience wastewater backing up into your toilet and backups in other plumbing fixtures, such as your tubs and sinks. A damaged sewer line can also allow wastewater to spill into your yard, creating a toxic mess that will be very expensive to clean.
