Sewer Line Repair
What is a sewer line and why do they need to be repaired
A sewer line is a pipe that connects the property to a public sewer and is used for sewage disposal. The purpose of repairing or replacing a sewer line is to prevent clogs, overflows, and other issues from occurring in the plumbing system of your property.
The reason why it must be repaired or replaced is because the sewer lines are usually made of clay or cast iron. With time, these materials will erode and crack which may lead to leakage or clogs in your property's plumbing system which may lead to water damage and other issues.

Frozen pipe repair
"We all know the story. It's been a long winter and you're sitting at your desk, trying to focus on work when you suddenly notice a trickle of water coming from behind the radiator in your office. You quickly walk over to find that one of your pipes has frozen and now there's water pouring out onto the floor."
It's not uncommon for pipes to freeze in cold weather. If you suspect that there is a frozen pipe in your home, office or business, then it's important to act quickly! Frozen pipes can lead to serious water damage.
1. Why do pipes freeze
The pipes in your home can freeze just like the ones outside. If you live in a cold climate, it is possible that water may be flowing through them at any time of year.
What is surprising are the ways that frozen pipes can create havoc in your home. Leaky or burst water lines mean standing water and flooded basements. You don't want to be wading through all that muck - so how do we make sure this doesn't happen to you?
First, let's talk about what causes pipe freezing in the first place:
Low temperatures and high humidity levels. When these two forces collide, a frost layer forms on exterior walls and then seeps inside through cracks or leaks, which means even if it feels like spring outside - inside your house could be getting colder by water seeped inside the wall.
In the Cold weather, the higher the water pressure, the more likely that your pipes are to freeze.
2. How to thaw a frozen pipe
What should you do if Pipes Freeze happens? There's no need to panic - there is a number of things which can be done:
- Operate any faucets in the house periodically. This will help keep them from freezing up and also prevent leaks when thawing occurs.
- If it has already frozen, run hot water through at least one tap until the frost disappears or use boiling pots of water for short periods so cold air cannot get in around the taps; then turn off all taps remotely connected with those two valves to ensure they don't burst during thawing process. "If ice still persists," says Klineberg.
It is always better to call a Professional Plumber to help you thaw Frozen Pipes. Why you need a professional plumber to repair frozen pipes?

Tips for winterizing your home's plumbing system before the cold weather hits
For Offices, it may be necessary to hire a professional plumber for this process. Owners should follow these tips in order to winterize their plumbing system and avoid costly repairs:
- Avoid running water when you are not using it (i.e., do not leave taps on). This will reduce wear on your pipes by freezing them less frequently. It also saves money!
- Use plastic or rubber hoses along with metal hose clamps instead of galvanized steel ones that will corrode over time due to corrosion from salt use during colder months; switch out any copper parts as well because they can break down under certain circumstances. Be sure to cover all exterior spigots and faucets with insulation for prevention against frozen pipes in the future too. Call Plumbing heros if you have any questions about this process
- If you have an electric or gas furnace, call for service to inspect it and turn it off if necessary
- Drain your pipes by opening all faucets to let out any remaining water
- Keep a bucket under downspouts and open them so they don't freeze over again. Close doors leading outside to prevent cold air from getting inside.
- Fill up containers with hot water and place them around the house where there's exposed pipe (eaves, windowsills) and Turn on ceiling fans in rooms without heaters to circulate warm air throughout the room
5. How much does Frozen Pipes Repair cost?
Frozen pipes repair: starting at $250-650 depending on length of pipe and how deep they have managed to find the frozen section. The more difficult it will be if there's a gas leak in your house or apartment complex.

Gas leak repair
A gas leak in your home or office can be a serious matter. It's important to take quick action and call a professional as soon as you suspect there might be a gas leak. The problem is that many people don't know what signs to look for, so they ignore the warning signs until it becomes an emergency situation.
- If you smell gas, leave the area immediately and call 911
- Turn off all gas sources (lights, stovetops, ovens) and electrical appliances
- Call a professional to assess the situation
- Check for sparks or flames near your home's exterior walls
- Do not use any electrical devices in the house until it is safe to do so
- Be sure that there are no children or pets in the house before entering
1. How to Identify Gas Leak?
To identify gas leak , you need to look for the signs of gas escaping from your home. You can find these by looking at different areas of your house and assessing how strong the smell is, where it's coming from, and what color it is when lit or burning
Gas leaks can happen to anyone, and it's important for people in the house or office to know how to identify a gas leak. Gas leaks are often silent and odorless so they can go undetected until an explosion happens. Even if you don't smell anything, there might be a gas leak! If you see any of these signs, evacuate your home immediately:
-Sticky liquid or soot on the ground, which smells like rotten eggs.
-Signs of natural gas may include a hissing sound, bubbling in a water-filled container with bright yellow flames and a green "halo," or an orange flame for propane.
-If you smell any type of gas leak inside your home: Leave immediately! Shut off all sources including pilot lights on stoves and ovens before leaving the house to avoid the risk of an explosion.
2. Preventative measure to prevent future leaks -
Gas leaks are a common problem in the United States, with over 3 million gas-related incidents per year. This is an issue for both homeowners and office buildings, as it can lead to dangerous consequences. Luckily, there are many ways to prevent gas leaks from happening at home or in your workplace before they happen!
-Check for improper installation of gas appliances.
-Keep your pilot light lit on a stove and oven so long as you are cooking or baking, to avoid having it turn off during use.
-Have an annual inspection of your gas appliances by a qualified professional.
-If you notice any cracks or leaks, have them repaired immediately before the gas can escape and cause an explosion.
Cost of Gas Line Repair
The average cost to repair a gas leak is $600-$800 with the price increasing depending on the severity of damage caused by the leak. Fixing a leak before it becomes worse can save time and money in the future!
Do you have a leaky pipe? Old pipes can be the cause of your water leaks. This is because old pipes have cracks and other damage that may not be visible on the surface, but which will eventually lead to leaks. It's important to take care of these types of issues before they get worse and costlier repairs are needed. The best way to handle this problem is through professional plumbing services from a trusted company in your area like Plumbing Heros.
Re-piping is a process that can be done to improve the quality of your water. Re-piping can help to fix potential water leakages and prevent the need for emergency plumbing services. It also ensures that your home's systems are able to handle a demand increase or decrease in capacity, which is typically necessary due to changes in household size or addition of new appliances like dishwashers and washing machines.
This process includes removing old pipes from under sinks, kitchens and bathrooms; replacing them with newly installed copper piping; then making sure they're securely fastened back into place so you don't have any leaks!
If you want to learn more about re-piping, give us a call at (855)-983-4669
There are two primary reasons for re-piping, one being to replace old pipes and another being to fix leaks
- re-piping is a great way to make your home more energy efficient
- if the pipes are old, they may not have been designed for today's plumbing needs and will likely need replacement sooner rather than later. This can lead to expensive repairs! Replacing them now ensures that you're not spending money on future leak or pipe repair costs.
The process of replacing an entire piping system in homes has greatly improved over the years with new techniques such as trenchless technology, which eliminates the need for disruptive digging and excavation except at points where connections occur. The benefit is less damage to landscaping while reducing cost by up to 40% when compared with older methods of installation - plus no risk of gas leaks from excavating around the premises .
The trenchless approach is also suitable for replacing lines that are close to other structures. It's because there's no digging involved, which can make a big difference when your pipes or sewer line need attention around the foundation of your home. In some cases, this method may even be used to replace existing water mains in urban areas without disturbing sidewalks and roads near buildings.

1. What is a good time to start looking into re-piping?
A good time to start looking into re-piping would be when you're planning renovations so that they can coincide with the project
If you are considering this as an option, consult with a professional plumber who can assess your home's plumbing system and provide the best advice for what needs to be done and why.
2. The cost of re-piping.
The cost of re-piping will depend on what type of piping you have (copper or galvanized), how long it is, and where in the house it needs to be replaced. For example, if copper pipes need replacing in a single bathroom with just one fixture connected to them, that project would typically take about two days for our Plumbing heroes crew. However, if galvanized pipe needed replacing throughout an entire home's plumbing system - including bathrooms, kitchen sinks, laundry rooms and more - then we'd expect a larger project like this could last up to five weeks for company
Re-piping Repair Service starts at $800 upwards with an average range being around$2000 - this might sound very high but it's worth the investment in time and money
If you need help deciding whether or not this is something you want done, consult with a Us who can assess your home's plumbing system.
