No matter how well designed or the quality of the components being used, a plumbing system is always subject to unexpected breakdowns. These problems often occur because the fresh water supply to most homes pump water at pressures between twenty PSI (Pounds per Square Inch) and forty PSI. Add to this the various pressure changes that occur when a valve is opened or closed and it is easy to see why the water often comes out the winner in this struggle. The best way to remedy this situation is to contact Emergency Plumbers in Brockton MA. An emergency plumber can eliminate the leak before it does serious damage to the expensive finishes inside the home.
Another typical emergency is a clogged drainage system. Clogs can occur in several places including the P-Traps and the main septic lines. These problems happen for different reasons and the actual repairs will vary. For instance, the P-Traps are designed to hold a little water in the crook of the pipe. The purpose is to trap the return of sewer gas, but that bend in the pipe can also catch food, hair or debris. The repair is fairly simple. The P-Trap needs to be removed so they can be cleaned. The biggest issue to be concerned about is stripping the threads of the connection when putting things back together.
Septic and sewage lines are a little harder to clean. These are typically long stretches of pipe that may require the plumber to use special tools. When Emergency Plumbers in Brockton MA attempt this repair, they often inspect the problem with a video camera. This allows the technicians to locate damage to the pipes and determine how tough the clog will be to eliminate. Once a problem is found, the next tool is usually a rooter or pipe-snake. This long and flexible tool uses a cable to deliver an auger to the clogged area. The auger allows the plumber to pierce the clog and get the liquid moving again. If the blockage was something major, then the plumber may suggest cleaning the pipes. To learn more, contact the experts at Drain Remedy Inc.
