Having indoor plumbing is something most of us don’t think about on a day to day basis. It wasn’t too long ago that people were trekking to the backyard outhouse and warming water over a fire for bathing and cooking. With a quick turn of the nob we have running water at our disposal to drink, bathe, clean and cook with. It’s not until we don’t have the ease of access to water that we realize just how important and precious of a commodity it really is. When you have a plumbing emergency, or even a simple repair or maintenance, you want to be able to call your local Rock Hill plumbers at any time to get your plumbing back on track as quickly as possible.
Often times it can be difficult to anticipate a plumbing repair. It’s important to keep up to date on your plumbing maintenance. You can do so by contacting your local Rock Hill plumber to discuss a maintenance schedule to do your best to keep your plumbing in tip top shape. Having a professional plumber do routine checks on your plumbing can help detect potential issues before they become bigger, more expensive problems. Some services AAA City Plumbing offers are:
Emergency Plumbing Services
Accidents and emergencies have a knack of happening at the most inconvenient times. Knowing when an emergency call to your Rock Hill plumber is warranted or not can make the difference between a quick and easy repair and a large and costly repair. A plumbing emergency would be classified as something that can cause significant damage within your home or business if not taken care of immediately. If you notice a drain backup or a clogged, overflowing toilet this could be signs of blockage further down within your plumbing. A professional is needed to reach those deeper clogs a plunger can’t’ reach. Any leaky pipes all the way to full blown flooding are signs of an emergency. The first thing you need to do in a case like any of these is to remain calm and find the main water valve to your home or business and turn it off. This will stop the water flow helping prevent further damages. Then the next thing you need to do is call your emergency Rock Hill plumber and let them know your situation. They will send their trained and qualified technician to quickly repair your plumbing. If in doubt if it’s an actual emergency or not, it’s still best to call. Better safe than sorry.
Septic Tank Services
It can be easy to forget about your septic tank because it’s buried deep in the ground somewhere close to your home or business. However, it’s extremely important to have regular maintenance on your septic tank. If you don’t have regular cleanings with your tank being pumped it can get full and overflow. This kind of damage is hazardous because of the biowaste that gets exposed is toxic and the repair is quite costly. Depending on the size of your tank and the amount of people using the plumbing determines how often you need to have your tank serviced. On average it is recommended every three to five years. Things you can do to help keep your septic tank in tip top shape are:
- Don’t put things down your drain that you shouldn’t. Things such as coffee grounds, paper towels, cat litter, diapers and feminine hygiene products can clog up your tank and cause it to overflow.
- Avoid heavily using cleaning products. Your septic tank is designed to handle an average use of cleaning products but not an overabundance. This can kill the good bacteria within your septic tank making it so the waste doesn’t break down and be filtered properly.
- Do your best to avoid overusing your garbage disposal. Using it is fine with a septic tank but sending too much food waste too quickly makes it harder to break down in a timely manner.
- Don’t plant anything above your septic tank and its plumbing such as trees or bushes. The roots can grow down and penetrate the pipes causing them to rupture and leak hazardous waste. Also, don’t park or place anything heavy over the septic field. Doing so can harm the system.
Water Heater Repairs
Water heaters are another plumbing device that can go forgotten. Regular maintenance is important to keep it running properly. The last thing you want to have happen is to be in the middle of a hot shower and have the water run cold. Or for it to break and flood your home or business. Another sign of needing a water heater repair is if your water is brown or discolored. This can be a sign of rust or debris collecting within your water heater. Having your Rock Hill plumber run a maintenance check and clean your water heater can help prevent damages.
Grease traps are crucial, and legally required, within your commercial restaurant. A grease trap does exactly what it sounds like, traps grease. When running a kitchen, grease is a frequent occurrence. You can do your best to reduce grease entering your plumbing system, but it’s really unavoidable. Having a grease trap installed will help keep your plumbing, and neighboring businesses, clear of clogs. Your professional Rock Hill plumber will be able to tell you what size of grease trap is needed for your business to keep it running smoothly. They will also be able to clean your trap regularly to keep it running efficiently.
