Sewage Water Backing Up in Your Home
Our number one plumbing emergency has to be sewer backups. Sewer drain line problems do not present themselves until the line stops working completely. This can be caused by roots in the sewer line, your home’s foundation shifting, or maybe a hard object like your child’s favorite action figure may be blocking the line. Sewage water back ups tend to go through all pipes, including your showers and sinks! So, always make sure if you suspect a leak to get a plumber near you for immediate service. Experiencing a plumbing emergency? Don’t worry, our team of skilled plumbers at Reliant Plumbing are always ready to assist you!
Ceiling is Leaking
A bulging ceiling tile or water dripping from the ceiling can be signs of a serious leak. It is very common for builders to save space by putting the water heater in the attic. Lots of time these water heaters will go unmaintained for many years. Since these units are made of sheet metal, your water heater will eventually deteriorate and start leaking. Other times, we find the HVAC system condensate drain line may be clogged due to impurities in the air. This causes water to back up out of the line and cause a leak. Rodents can chew through the lines, causing water damage in your home.
Leak in Front Yard
Discovering a large water puddle or seeing gushing water from your front yard can be a sign of a water main break. This occurs more often than you would think since this climate experiences extreme temperature changes. When pipes warm up and cool down, your pipes expand and contract. Sometimes this can cause the water main pipe to rupture, and repair is possible without excavation. Just search ‘plumber near me’ and Reliant Plumbing will be at your doorstep in no time! You may also accidentally break your pipe by installing a fence or remodeling your front lawn. It is important to know the location of your water line so you do not dig into it and bust the line open. If you need assistance, give your local plumber a call. Lastly, the ground shifting could be the reason you are experiencing a leak. Wet and dry weather conditions can put stress on the pipe causing it to crack and leak.
Wet Spot on Floor Inside Home or Business
Slab leaks are usually first noticed by a wet spot in the floor. A slab leak occurs when the water lines located underneath your concrete slab foundation have cracked, or completely separated. Slab leaks can be one of the most evasive problems to fix due to the location of the water leak. It is important to hire an emergency plumber who can resolve the issue without causing further damage to your home, and Reliant Plumbing has the best up-to-date technology to tackle even the most stubborn residential or commercial plumbing leaks.
This is one of the most dangerous plumbing emergencies. If you smell gas, it is important to shut the gas off at the meter in front of your home or business or call your gas provider immediately. Gas can be explosive and can cause extensive irreparable damage. Sometimes your gas pipes can experience electrolysis, which happens when two dissimilar metals come in contact with each other causing them to deteriorate at a rapid pace. This causes rupturing in the pipes. Other times, gas pipes can be poorly installed. It is important to have your gas appliances installed by a licensed emergency plumber who will properly seal the line at the connection. Nonetheless, accidents do happen and a pipe may also get busted while completing a remodel on a room that needs updating.
