Prolonged exposure to severely low temperatures poses the highest risk of pipe bursts, with water being able to freeze within just six hours. The greatest risk occurs when temperatures fall below 20 degrees, while pipes can generally freeze at temperatures below 32 degrees. Pipes are most prone to freezing in common locations like exterior walls, attics, and crawl spaces. What proactive steps can prevent frozen pipes? Certain measures significantly reduce the risk of frozen pipes and the problems they can bring. Our insured plumbers suggest keeping under-sink cabinet doors open and maintaining an indoor temperature of 55 degrees or higher to help pipes stay warm. Before freezing temperatures arrive, shut off outdoor spigots and drain the lines. Use your faucets regularly and allow a small amount of cold water to flow from a far faucet to maintain circulation. It’s also smart to consult your plumber for advice about insulating your water tank and pipes. By following these guidelines, you can keep your plumbing in good shape during cold weather.
Since every home has a unique plumbing layout, your plumbing contractor will start by assessing the most suitable method for insulating your pipes. This often entails selecting an appropriate insulation material (which might also include heat tape or heat cables) to shield pipes located in crawl spaces, exterior walls, or unheated attics. By calling our plumbing service in Flagstaff and implementing these solutions, your pipes will be well-prepared to endure cold temperatures, reducing the risk of freezing or bursting.
- Talk to your neighbors. You can suspect a water main break (rather than frozen pipes) if they have the same issues.
- Shut off the water by turning off the main supply.
- Open every faucet.
- Warm pipes with a blow dryer, but carefully avoid anything flammable.
- Slowly turn the water supply back on and evaluate the situation. Check for pooled water (which is an indicator of a burst or cracked pipe), leaks, and/or cracks.
- Turn the circuit breaker off and handle electrical wiring carefully.
- Complete drain flange installation.
- Install the mounting ring and gasket.
- Support the disposal and mount it into place.
- Using pipe connectors, secure the discharge pipe (P-trap) to the disposal outlet.
- Ensure that all fasteners at the plumbing and mounting connection points are fully tightened and rule out leaks by operating the disposal and faucet.
If any of the situations resonate with you, keep reading to discover the probable reasons.
If this issue is accompanied by condensation on the appliance, the most likely cause is deterioration or breakage of the rubber sealant around the appliance’s connections. If the problem is paired with water leaking from the supply line, you likely have damaged or loose water connectors between your water supply and appliance due to shifting or wear and tear. These causes can be tough to troubleshoot on your own, so give Mountain High Plumbing a call for help.
Brass pipes have an average lifespan of 70 years and galvanized steel lasts approximately 20 years. As pipes and plumbing components age, they deteriorate, corrode due to pH imbalances or mineral buildup, or start to rust. Left unchecked, you can also encounter leaks, pipe damage, and more - so it’s essential to call your go-to plumbing expert.
I can see damage to my fixtures or pipes.
When physical impact occurs, a fixture crack can occur, which requires rapid repairs.
Your plumbing lines can become clogged with an air handler drain pan obstruction, gutter debris, chemicals, hair, and a slew of other things. Severe clogs can cause significant, urgent plumbing problems.
Since pipe joints consist of so many pieces and they are subjected to consistent water flow, pipe joint damage is not uncommon. This type of damage can be caused by extreme temperatures, high water pressure, or age, and it will require joint replacement.
Pipes are designed to withstand many challenges, but high water pressure can cause them to leak or even burst. Our diagnostic testing will include checking your household water pressure to rule out (or avoid) a problem.
Not all plumbers are created equally, and the unfortunate reality is that poorly installed pipes can cause significant issues for homeowners. Each pipe and connector must be carefully and meticulously installed by a pro, like the ones at Mountain High Plumbing. Call us for 24-hour emergency plumbing services at (928) 774-3593 so we can put an end to this messy and damaging situation.
I have wet areas or a sinkhole in my yard, an extreme drop in water pressure, and/or trees close to my home.
Tree root systems are quite complicated and can easily interfere with household water lines. Plumbers must perform thorough inspections of pipes and take care of any intrusive roots as early as possible.
Nature is unpredictable, and earthquakes, floods, and other disasters cause the ground to move and shift. This can cause pipes to bend, separate, twist, or crack. Inspections and thorough plumbing repairs must take place when these disasters strike.
Hydro jetting is a cutting-edge method that employs a unique, high-pressure water hose to thoroughly cleanse your plumbing system. The process commences with a preliminary inspection using a specialized camera to detect any existing damage that may hinder the use of hydro jetting equipment. Once we've established that your system is damage-free, the hydro jetting service begins. This involves skillfully positioning the high-pressure hose and connecting it to a professional-grade water tank. Ensuring the hose's optimal insertion point is a meticulous step that can’t be overlooked.
With an impressive surge of water pressure, our robust hose, and the force of gravity working in tandem, we get to work. This dynamic synergy propels water through the system at a rate of approximately 20 gallons per minute. The water surges through backward-facing jets, propelling the nozzle through the pipes, and a forward-facing jet further aids in dislodging debris. Hydro jetting doesn't just tackle clogs - it's a comprehensive solution for eliminating grease, tree roots, mineral buildup, and any potential debris that could pose issues down the line. If you're facing a particularly stubborn blockage, your reliable plumbing experts are likely to recommend this method for the most effective results.
City water goes through treatment processes, including pre-filtration, copper-zinc KDF, and activated carbon treatment, to ensure safety. Home water filters are essential for removing various contaminants, such as hard minerals, heavy metals, and chemicals. Filtered water enhances health and prolongs the life of plumbing, faucets, and appliances.
Opting for a whole-house water filtration system is a wise choice with a range of benefits. It guarantees access to safe, great-tasting drinking water, eliminating worries about contaminants and saving money on bottled water while reducing plastic waste. Additionally, the filtration system prevents limescale and mineral buildup, reducing potential plumbing issues and costly repairs. Say goodbye to skin irritants, reduce soap usage, and enjoy cleaner, softer clothes. Overall, investing in whole-house water filtration enhances your quality of life and environmental consciousness while remaining budget-friendly.
