Garland Pipe & Drain Repair

How Does It Work?

Household plumbing pipes are installed in walls and under floors during construction. They carry fresh water to kitchens, bathrooms, utility rooms, and so on. A separate system carries waste water from a sink or toilet to the main drain and out of the house to the Garland sewer or septic system.

In Garland, Texas, pipe is available in cast iron, brass, copper, galvanized steel, and plastic. Fittings are connections between pipes that allow pipes to turn or attach to a fixture such as a faucet or water heater.

The method in which the fittings are installed on pipe depends on the material. Part of your Garland plumber’s job is to determine the best solution available. For example, copper pipes are soldered together or joined with compression or flare fittings. Plastic pipes are joined with plastic screw-on fittings or PVC cement. In addition, transition fittings can be used to join plastic and metal pipes.

What Can Go Wrong?

Pipe doesn't move, nor is it subject to wear. So the greatest cause of pipe problems is age (pipes become brittle or corrode, fittings fail) or damage from freezing. No matter the cause, Garland Plumbing Pro is available 24 hours a day for all your pipe repair needs.

Got a clogged-up or slow running drain? You’re not alone. Each year, more than one-in-five Americans find themselves with a blocked-up toilet, sink or tub. Many of these same people try to solve these problems themselves. You can try using a plunger, but more often than not, that just makes the problem worse. You can try one of those store-bought chemical products to dissolve the blockage, but they can damage pipes, fixtures, clothing and skin.

Garland Plumbing FAQs

Q: My water bill has increased, and I don’t know why. Could it be a slab leak?

A: Garland slab leaks typically occur when the piping underneath your concrete foundation deteriorates, causing pinhole leaks in your plumbing. As the water leaks under the foundation of your home, it can rise to the surface causing discoloration of flooring, damp spots in carpet, mildew smells, warping of baseboards and flooring material. The concrete foundation of your home acts as a temporary barrier between the leaking water source and the interior of your home. The sooner you act, the better – to minimize water waste, increased water bills and extensive water damage to your home. If you suspect any type of water leak, call Garland Plumbing Pro today.

Q: Our dishwasher does not drain completely. What is the problem?

A: Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the bottom of the unit at the end of each cycle. This is to keep the heating element from burning out. However, if the dishwasher does not empty at all, you’ve got a problem. One of our qualified Garland plumbers can determine if it is a clogged drain line, faulty motor or an electronic issue. Dishwashers are fickle machines and can be very hard to work on. We can help you determine the best course of action, and if you need a new unit installed, our technician can perform the installation as well.

Q: My plumber recently used PEX Pipe on a repair. What is PEX?

plumbing with pex pipeA: PEX is one of the most widely used and cost effective new plumbing solutions to hit the market in decades. PEX tubing is plastic plumbing pipe that is perfect for residential use. It's easy to install and much cheaper than traditional copper plumbing. It is presently one of the most commonly used plumbing materials in new home building, making it the perfect choice if you're looking for a functional, cost effective, solution to replacing or installing plumbing in your home.

Q: I have had several sewer line stoppages. Is hydro-jetting a good solution?

A: There are two primary applications for Hydro-Jetting: First, jetting is effective for removing obstructions such as grease, paper, scale, hair, sand, silt, soap build-up and miscellaneous debris in sanitary and storm main drain piping systems. Second, we recommend jetting for preventative maintenance. Sewer and drain lines that are susceptible to frequent or regular blockages often respond well to scheduled jetting before blockages get a chance to develop and turn into emergency problems.

Q: How can I keep my AC unit’s condensate drain from clogging?

A: Every few months, pour a small amount of laundry bleach into the drain. The bleach will inhibit the growth of drain clogging materials that flourish in the trap.

Q: Is there anything I can do to keep my washing machine drain from clogging?

A: This is a common problem because your washing machine is designed to flush lint and dirt down the drain. If the drain is slow then the only real good solution is to have the drain snaked professionally. A small home hand snake may temporarily clear the stoppage. However, to clear the line properly a professional snake can fully clean the line.

Q: How does a drain trap work?

A: The trap is really very simple. A small amount of water is held in the trap blocking sewer gas from escaping into your home. If you smell sewer gas then a component in your drain system has failed and should be repaired immediately. For help with all sewer and drain problems give your expert Garland plumbers a call today.

Q: Does a water stain on the ceiling or wall always indicate a water leak?

A: Yes, but not necessarily from your Garland plumbing system. Water can penetrate your home from the roof or windows and often flow to areas a distance from the leak area. The same holds true for plumbing leaks however in many cases they can be easier to isolate. If you suspect a water leak from your plumbing system, give us a call for an estimate.
