Power Rodding

Power rodding is a higher-tech, more effective version of the basic drain snake. The system employs a thin metal cable that is highly flexible and doesn’t over-stress delicate plumbing as it is threaded into the pipe. At the end of the cable, a cleaning head incorporates extremely sharp cutting teeth that are specifically sized to the diameter of the pipe. An external electric motor rotating the cable spins the cleaning head and teeth at a high rate of speed. The cutting action destroys the immediate clog, but the action of the high-speed blades also scrapes the pipe walls free of sludge accumulation that reduces water flow and promotes clogs. Power rodding can also be used to remove tree roots that have infiltrated an outdoor sewer line.

Sump Pumps

Sump pumps move water from your basement out of your home. A sump is a naturally constructed pit, usually a hole carved below the main surface of your basement floor. This pit, known as a basin, holds the sump pump. The pump is equipped with valves that sense escalating water levels or pressure. When the water gets too high, sump pumps automatically pump excess water out of the basement and away from your property using a discharge line. This line, called an effluent, connects the sump pump to a designated drainage area.

Water Heaters

A vast majority of homes have conventional tank-type water heaters, which are powered by either gas or electricity. Generally speaking, gas water heaters are more expensive to buy than electric models, but cost less to operate because gas is cheaper than electricity. However, electric water heaters are more efficient than gas models and have higher energy-factor ratings. 

As its name implies, a tank-type heater has a large insulated storage tank that holds hot water until it’s needed. Here’s how it works: Cold water enters the bottom of the tank and is heated by either a gas flame below the tank or electric elements suspended inside the tank. An adjustable thermostat regulates and maintains the water temperature. A pressure-relief valve prevents an excessive buildup of pressure inside the tank.

When hot water is called for at a faucet or appliance, heated water is pumped out the top of the tank and through the home’s hot-water supply pipes. As the water level drops in the tank, it’s automatically refilled with cold water, and the whole process starts over again. 

Tank-type water heaters come in various sizes, ranging from about 20 to 80 gallons, but a 40- or 50-gallon tank is sufficient for most households. If you’re shopping for a gas water heater, consider a condensing unit. It operates at higher efficiency by capturing hot exhaust gases before they exit the flue and redirecting them through a coil at the base of the unit. The incoming cold water then absorbs much of the heat from the gases. 

The downside of tank-type water heaters is that they hold a limited supply of hot water and may struggle to supply enough hot water during high-demand periods. Also, tank-type heaters burn energy (gas or electricity) day and night to maintain the water temperature, regardless of whether or not anyone’s using hot water, a phenomenon known as standby heat loss.

Garbage Disposals

The garbage disposal is mounted to the underside of a sink and is designed to collect solid food waste in a grinding chamber. When you turn on the disposal, a spinning disc, or impeller plate, turns rapidly, forcing the food waste against the outer wall of the grinding chamber. This pulverizes the food into tiny bits, which then get washed by water through holes in the chamber wall. While disposals do have two blunt metal “teeth,” called impellers, on the impeller plate, they do not have sharp blades, as is commonly believed.

Clogged Drains

Clogged drains and blocked pipes may start as minor issues but can quickly escalate into major problems. A clogged drain can cause slow water drainage, corrosion, flooding, and, in extreme cases, sewage backup and costly repairs. Preventing them starts with recognizing how the causes of clogged drains. The 8 most common household causes of clogged drains are hair, soap, dirt, food waste, mineral buildup, small objects, toilet paper buildup and tree roots. With so many causes of clogged drains, the best way to fix them is to prevent them from being clogged in the first place. Never put anything you shouldn’t down the drain and avoid trying to clear drains by adding more chemicals or objects. And if your clogged drains turn into an emergency requiring help from an experienced plumber, contact Allegiance Service Group for assistance around the clock.

Water Line Repair

Some common causes for water lines to break are:

Corrosion

When pipes are underground, they are subject to a variety of soil and conditions. Conductive soil corrodes metal pipe. When this corrosion weakens the line to a certain point, the pipe just breaks. Pipes need maintenance and replacement from time to time. For external pipes, keep an eye out for excessive rust and corrosion. If you can head it off early, you don’t have to worry as much about a broken pipe.

Freezing

Freezing weather is also what causes your water line to break. The fluctuation of temperatures especially in the Chicagoland area cause swelling and shrinking of pipes that can lead to cracks. Little cracks can eventually lead to big breaks. It’s difficult to avoid this all the time with underground pipes, but you can wrap insulation around exposed pipes to prevent this.

Soil Conditions

Aside from conductivity, the overall condition of the soil for underground pipes can have an effect on the pipe’s integrity. Pressure, movement, and even the roots of plants can weaken a pipe if given enough time.

There are many answers to what causes your water line to break. Knowing what to do when it happens is the best way you can prepare for such an event. If you have issues with your pipes or have questions about what to do in case of a water line break, contact Allegiance Service Group today!

Sewer Cleaning and Excavation

When your sewer line becomes clogged or damaged, you’ll likely need some type of excavation in order to get to the sewer pipes. Once the pipe has been accessed, a sewer cleaner uses high-pressure water to break up the blockage, scour the pipe walls and flush the debris down the sewer system to the vacuum hose. This safely and efficiently removes the debris or blockage material from the sewer line. If you are having problems with your sewer line, you need an experienced and trustworthy plumbing contractor to handle it. Contact us today!
