f you’ve been having plumbing issues with a hot water heater or home filtration system and you’re not sure about your warranty, give The Pink Plumber a call. We keep all of your service contracts on file so we can tell what parts need to be fixed and if there’s an active warranty in place. We relieve the stress for you. For example, we can contact the manufacturer and order the parts quickly so there’s no hassle. Here’s Scott’s story:
I’ve used The Pink Plumber three times now and the most recent time was for checking out my new hot water heater. My hot water heater was on the fritz. It was getting really hot, but not staying hot for very long. There were several times there was no hot water at all, so I knew it was going to have to be replaced. I’ve heard rave reviews about the plumbers and employees at The Pink Plumber, so I decided to give you a call.
I spoke with Tim and he was very helpful. He worked hard to get the issues resolved right away. Tim knew that going without hot water wasn’t something I wanted to do for very long so he worked quickly to get the issue resolved. He called the manufacturer and saw that the thermocouple had a recall. Then, Tim replaced it right away and upgraded my electrical circuit so it wouldn’t overload the system. The best thing is, I didn’t have to pay out of pocket, even though I expected to.
I would recommend The Cure Plumber to my family and neighbors because this company has the best technicians and customer service team. Tim went out of his way to make sure that I was a priority on his work list. To me, it means a lot when a business goes the extra mile and makes sure that their equipment is working top-notch for customers.
If you’re having issues with any newer installations that we or another company has done, give us a call right away and we will check warranty details for you. We want to satisfy your plumbing needs and keep your home’s plumbing system running its best!
Homeowners often face the unfortunate circumstances caused by an overflowing toilet. When this happens, you must act fast and remove or dry up the water as quickly as possible to avoid the potential damage to your bathroom flooring, cabinetry and baseboard. While excessive bathroom tissue or foreign objects being inadvertently flushed down the commode often cause the problem, sometimes the cause can be a serious one that is hidden within the sewage line. The post below will identify the less common, but serious causes of a toilet overflow.
A Restricted Sewage Line
A restriction in the pipe will affect its ability to handle the amount of wastewater for which it was designed. When this happens, the volume of wastewater traveling through the pipe is reduced significantly, which can cause a toilet backup. If ignored, the restriction will act as a catchall, trapping debris and growing larger as time passes until it becomes completely blocked.
An Obstructed Sewage Line
An obstruction within the sewer line renders the pipe useless as wastewater and solids cannot pass. Once the length of pipe fills with wastewater, you could experience a toilet overflow or slow drains. Flushing a toilet under these circumstances can cause a back up as the rushing toilet water is pushed back towards the fixture due to the blockage.
A Collapsed or Damaged Sewage Line
A collapsed or damaged sewage line will experience reduced flow or a complete blockage depending on the severity of the collapse. In most of these cases, your plumbing contractor must replace the damaged section to restore service.
Tree Root Invasion
A common problem with older sewage line—Orangeburg Pipe, clay or cast iron pipe—systems is tree root invasion. Often, as time passes and the material ages, the seams that connect the sections of sewage pipe fail, allowing roots to penetrate the sewage line. Trees, shrubs and other foliage naturally seek out water and are quick to take advantage of a compromised sewage line. While your plumber can buy you some time and restore service by clearing the line with a snake and cutting auger, the roots will eventually return.
If you are experiencing an unusually high volume of toilet overflows, you must contact your plumbing contractor immediately. They can identify the cause and attack the problem at its source, often with a simple drain cleaning or snaking. Keep in mind, sewage line problems will not fix themselves and can often lead to additional home repairs when ignored.
