Springtime Honey-Do Plumbing Checklist

SEmpSpringtime Honey-Do Plumbing Checklist

Spring is a great time to do some spring cleaning around the house, and that includes your plumbing. Here is a checklist of some plumbing-related tasks you can do to get your home ready for spring:

Check For Leaks

One of the most important things you can do to keep your plumbing system in good working order is to check for leaks regularly. A slow leak can waste a lot of water over time, so it’s important to fix any leaks as soon as possible. To check for leaks, turn on the faucet and look for any drips or drips. If you see any, tighten the washer or replace the faucet.

Inspect Your Pipes

Empty heading

Cracks or damage in your pipes can lead to leaks, so it’s important to inspect them regularly. To inspect your pipes, look for any cracks, bulges, or other signs of damage. If you see any, call a plumber to have them repaired.

Clean Your Drains

Clogged drains can be a major nuisance, so it’s important to clean them regularly. 

Check Your Water Heater

Your water heater should be serviced every year to ensure it’s in good working condition. To schedule a service call, contact your local plumber.

Here are some additional tips for keeping your plumbing system in good working order:

Use cold water for washing dishes.
Hot water can corrode pipes and lead to leaks.

Avoid using harsh chemicals on your pipes.
These chemicals can damage the pipes and lead to leaks.

Install a water softener.
A water softener can remove minerals from the water, which can help to prevent scale buildup and clogs.

Have your plumbing system inspected regularly by a professional.
This will help to identify any potential problems before they become major issues.

By following these tips, you can keep your plumbing system in good working order and avoid costly repairs.

Team Rooter is an honest company to do business! They take care the job warranty without a question. Three years ago they repaired my sewer line with trenchless sewer pipe replacement. Last weekend the sewer backup to bathroom again. Called their customer service, unfortunately all the serviceman are out at the time, I got a local plumber came right way to clean out the blockage. Next day called Team Rooter reported the problem, a supervisor discuss the situation with me by phone and offered sending a technician to site to investigate. Mr. James Craig came with Cam Video the next day found tree roots break into pipe through a coupler. He immediately authorized a repair job: to break the concrete, dig 3 ft down to reach and replace the broken pipe coupler. Two men crew showed up next day completed the job which could value of thousands dollars but all under warranty. A special thanks to Mr. James Craig, his is knowledgeable and friendly. His kindly smile really comforts my anxiety. I would highly recommend Team Rooter for any plumber problem because rest assure they will come back to fulfill their promise.

Common Plumbing Problems Faced by Homeowners and How to Prevent Them

Common Plumbing Problems Faced by Homeowners & How to Prevent Them

Homeowners often encounter various plumbing problems that can range from minor issues to major emergencies. Being aware of common plumbing problems and taking steps to prevent them can save homeowners time, money, and frustration.

Clogged Drains

Clogged drains are one of the most common plumbing problems faced by homeowners. They can be caused by a build-up of hair, soap, grease, and other debris. To prevent clogged drains, avoid pouring grease down the drain, use a drain strainer in your shower and sink, and avoid flushing non-biodegradable items down the toilet.

Running toilets

A toilet that constantly runs can waste a significant amount of water and increase your water bill. The problem is often caused by a faulty flapper valve or a worn-out flapper chain. To prevent this, check your toilet’s flapper valve and flapper chain regularly and have them replaced if they show signs of wear and tear.

Burst pipes

Burst pipes can be caused by a variety of factors, including extreme cold, frozen pipes, and corrosion. To prevent burst pipes, make sure that your pipes are properly insulated, especially in areas where the temperature drops below freezing. Also, keep an eye out for signs of corrosion on your pipes and have them replaced if necessary.
By being aware of common plumbing problems and taking steps to prevent them, homeowners can save time, money, and frustration. Regularly maintaining your plumbing system, early detection and a quick response can prevent major issues from occurring and ultimately saving money. If you ever have a major issue, call us anytime.

Energy-efficient Plumbing Upgrades for Older Homes.

Energy-efficient plumbing upgrades for older homes.

As homes age, the plumbing system can become less efficient, leading to increased water and energy usage, higher utility bills, and a larger carbon footprint. Fortunately, there are several energy-efficient upgrades that can be made to an older home’s plumbing system to improve efficiency and save money on utility bills.

Low-Flow Fixtures

One of the simplest and most cost-effective ways to improve the efficiency of an older home’s plumbing system is to install low-flow fixtures. Low-flow showerheads, toilets, and faucets can reduce water usage without sacrificing performance. This can lead to significant water savings over time.

Repiping

If your home is older, the pipes may be made of outdated materials that can corrode, leak or burst over time. Repiping with modern, durable materials can help to improve the efficiency of the plumbing system and prevent future problems. This upgrade can also increase the lifespan of the plumbing and improve the overall water quality in the home.

Tankless Water Heaters

Traditional water heaters with tanks can be energy-inefficient, especially in older homes where hot water demands are higher. Tankless water heaters heat water on demand, which means they are more energy-efficient. This type of water heater does not consume energy keeping a tank of water hot, it only uses energy when hot water is needed, making it a great option for older homes.

By making these energy-efficient upgrades, homeowners can save water and energy, reduce utility bills, and help protect the environment. These upgrades may require an initial investment but can result in long-term savings and an improved overall performance of the home’s plumbing system. For the best results, it is important to consult with our team and they will be able to guide and advise on the most appropriate upgrades for your home.

Dissecting Five Common Plumbing Myths

Dissecting Five Common Plumbing Myths

Here, at Team Rooter, we have seen quite a few interesting and challenging cases, most of which we overcame safely and efficiently. But, like most businesses and this line of work, there are myths and untruths that need addressing. Below we have a list of the five most common plumbing myths to help you separate fact from fiction.

In addition, you should schedule routine maintenance calls, and reach out to us if things look and sound suspicious. You don’t want a small problem in a pipe or sewage line, the water heater, or the toilet become a bigger issue, or worse, a disastrous event costing you lots of money to fix. Our certified team is ready to look into your plumbing issues and address them correctly. Here are the five plumbing myths we wanted to share and dissect.

1. Ice cubes sharpen the blades on the garbage disposal

Somehow this unlikely situation is something people have started believing. Garbage disposals do not have blades. They usually use a teeth-like design to breakdown and grind solid food into a more liquid form as the disposal keeps spinning. Just let the cool water flow from the faucet and help dispose the food items and push them out of the unit and into the pipes and out.

Additionally, here are a few other items you should not pour into your garbage disposal: coffee grounds, bones, pasta, oatmeal, nuts, eggshells, and well, trash that belongs into a waste bin. Keeping it clean will ensure proper operation.

2. Cat Litter is Safe to Flush 

Yes, you can flush it down the toilet if you use a water soluble litter – but the cat poop in the litter is toxic, especially to pregnant women since the poop can have parasites. Therefore, just scoop the poop and dispose separately. 

3. Water heaters do not explode

Oh, but they can. Water heaters have a pressure relief valve. If that valve is faulty or fails, that pressure cannot be releases. Therefore, the tank can explode. That’s why we recommend a visit by our Team Rooter plumbers for an annual maintenance to make sure everything works properly and safely.

4. Hot water helps dissolve the grease in clogged pipes

Yes, hot water can help melt the grease and push it down the drain, but keep in mind that the liquid grease will cool, take a more solid form and become a build up and clog the pipes. The grease then becomes a nest for small food pieces, hair and lint. Worse part, the deeper the clogs are in the pipe, the harder to reach them. 

5. Critters crawling up the pipes

We call myth on this one. Well, a little! These incidents are so rare; they make the news if they happen. In 2013, two different pythons crawled up into two different toilet bowls of a couple’s home in Australia. In 1999 (according to an article in the Richmond Times Dispatch – available in the Nexis news database) a Petersburg, Va., woman was bitten by a rat as she was sitting down on the toilet. It looks like the rat crawled through city sewer lines, and attacked the victim. A local health official said “this is the first I’ve heard of anybody being bitten by a rat while on the toilet.”

Make sure to contact us at Team Rooter with your questions, and if needed, schedule a visit. One of our skilled plumbers will come in and look at the plumbing issue and suggest the most efficient way and a timeline to fix it.

Top Five Summer Plumbing Issues

Top Five Summer Plumbing Issues

The kids are home from school, family and friends are coming over and lots of outdoor activities are going on during the summer months. The increased foot traffic in your home means more toilet flushes , more showers being taken, more dishes to clean, and more clothes to wash. Outdoor hoses are also used more in the summer (fill pools, water the lawn, wash cars, etc.) which can bring plumbing issues ranging from easy fixes to more complex problems.

Preventing most common plumbing problems is usually simple. If you find that you have more complex problem with your system, Team Rooter is here to help 24/7! As a precaution, here are the five plumbing issues we receive calls on during the summer months.

Sprinkler Head Damage & Leakage

Automated sprinklers watering your lawn require periodical maintenance. The heads can break and require replacing – you can detach the head and take it to your local hardware store and see if they are easily replaced. If they are not our staff is here to help. Also not using your sprinkler system (i.e during the California drought) can also cause wear-and-tear on the system. Make sure you cleaned your sprinkler system before you begin using it during the summer months.

Clogged Toilets

With summer break and kids being home from school, your toilet will be in more use than other times of the year. Depending on the ages of your children, the things that stay out of the pipes or end up flushed away are a completely different – when plunger does not solve the problem, you will need a professional to the rescue and that’s what we do – Call the Team!

Backed Up, Clogged Sewer Line

A variety of small items, individually or together can deposit, stick together, and clog up your bathrooms.  Also, the sink and the toilet will clog making it inconvenient for you or other guests.  Therefore, visitors cannot use the facilities at full capability.  

Laundry drains, the cleanout drain (the cleanout overflow), or the main drain can also clog. Drain blockages occur due to a variety of reasons, such as, grease and fatty substances. These are washed down the sink and accumulate in drainage pipes thereby causing an obstruction. Drain blockage is inconvenient and hazardous to your health.

Garbage Disposal

The extra use of the garbage disposal or dropping items that do not belong inside can damage and break it. Corn cobs, hard fruit, bones, egg shells, pasta and grease do not belong in the garbage disposal. Ask your children and other members of the household to put the disposable food items into a designated trash can or bag where they will be disposed later. This way you give the machine a break and can monitor what goes in and what stays out and goes into the garbage container outside. If you do find yourself needing a new unit, Team Rooter is here to help. 

Washing Machine Leaking

Summer time is also the season during which the washing machine runs more times than before. The hose on the back of the machine can burst and flood the room, or worse, the house. By spending slightly more and investing in a stainless steel hose, you can prevent this mishap.

Thank You – We Appreciate You! – Google & Yelp Customer Reviews

Our Team Rooter customers are important to us. It is in our best interest to keep their needs at the forefront on all of our project. Our Team Rooter customer satisfaction is #1 all the time.

We Take Customer Reviews Serious 

Why are Team Rooter customer reviews so important!

1) Better Understand your Customers & Improve Customer Service

Analyzing reviews left by your customers, helps your company understand overall customer satisfaction, as they can provide your business with feedback regarding what your customers truly want.

By using this insightful information as input, you will be able to improve customer service by quickly and efficiently resolve the issues that consumers faced, thereby creating a positive experience for the consumer and keeping your focus on their needs.

2) Credibility & Social Proof

No doubt, we are social creatures since the moment we come to this world and we are interested in knowing what other say before we make our buying decisions. Much like we would ask friends and family for recommendations, review sites allow us to do this online with just some clicks.

3) Fight with experience to save margins

Reviews enable our business to stand shoulder to shoulder with more established competition, and potentially gain a positive niche in people’s estimation and expectations. Look at it this way…which company would you rather buy from: one with 50 3-star reviews or one with 5 5-star reviews?

4) Allow Consumers to Have a Voice and Create Customer Loyalty

Consumers that take the time to leave an online review for your business are far more likely to feel a certain loyalty to you and keep coming back. Through the act of leaving a review and establishing a relationship with your business, it allows consumers to feel like they have a voice even behind a desktop and/or mobile and/ or tablet screen and are able to provide feedback in a positive and meaningful way.

5) Improve Rankings

Reviews appear to be the most prominent ranking factor in local search. It helps businesses rank well, even if they have low quality link profiles.

6) Our Customers (You) Are Doing Our Marketing

Positive online business reviews are worth a great deal and can offer your business benefits that a simple marketing campaign can’ t. In a nutshell, they are like micro – marketing campaigns that keep working long after the online review has been posted, providing, thus, a constant positive image to potential customers and creating a continual brand awareness that benefits the business for both the short and the long term.

7) Reviews Generate More Reviews

When a business has already received online reviews, it encourages other visitors to leave their own feedback. Just the appearance of several reviews seems to be enough to give new customers the incentive and confidence to submit their own opinion on a particular product or service.

Online customer reviews are here to stay, and the longer you wait to start encouraging them, the more you stand lose. Online customer reviews appear to be a great avenue for grabbing consumer’s attention and increasing sales. The importance of customer reviews is tremendous as they are very helpful to a vast majority of consumers and they are also responsible for securing your online visibility in search rankings. Furthermore, as they increase in importance and more competitors are encouraging customer reviews, your involvement is only going to become even more necessary.
