Preserve Your Landscaping with Trenchless Sewer Repair

Your sewer line is incredibly durable, and will most likely outlast your roof and other structures. Durability, however, is no indestructability. Things can happen that may necessitate a repair or replacement of your sewer pipes. If you are facing sewer pipe repair or replacement, you have a few options. Your best option will probably be trenchless sewer repair.

How trenchless sewer repair works

In conventional sewer repair, heavy equipment is used to dig up all of the earth above a problematic pipe. The pipe is pulled out of the trench and a new pipe is laid. Trenchless sewer repair typically involves digging a relatively small hole at each end of the broken pipe. A cable is sent through the old pipe from one hole to the other so that a new pipe can be dragged through, bursting the old pipe outward in the process. In some cases, a pipe re-lining, which involves a small hole at only one end, may be a good option.

Why you should choose trenchless repair

Trenchless pipe repair has a couple of key advantages over conventional pipe repair. First of all, it costs far less. The bigger advantage, however, may be that it keeps your yard intact. A conventional sewer repair will often destroy a garden or driveway, with massive trenches being dug, concrete being broken up, and heavy machinery rolling over everything. Add to this the cost of putting things back in order again, and you can see why the relatively small holes needed for trenchless sewer repair don’t sound bad at all. If you needed another reason to go with trenchless sewer repair, consider that it’s also endorsed by the EPA.

What is Hydro-Jetting?

Some clogged drains are too deeply blocked for any amount of plunging or snaking to ever clear them. For these problems, your Sacramento plumber might recommend hydro-jetting. This drain cleaning method is one of the best options available for clearing out blocked drains.

Before hydro-jetting, your plumbing technicians will use a video camera attached to a plumbing snake in order to spy the exact location of a deep, stubborn clog. A clog that requires hydro-jetting might be caused by corroded pipes, accumulated grease, or infiltrating roots. Once the cause and location of the clog have been identified, your plumber will then snake a hydro-jetting nozzle to the location of the clog, scouring the interior of the pipe with streams of water that blast the clog at a pressure of 4,000 psi.

To clear clogged drains and prevent them from happening in the future, call Ace Plumbing at (916) 455-4548. We’re on-call 24/7 to ensure that your drains get moving again as soon as possible.

7 Common Causes of Clogs [INFOGRAPHIC]

If you’re like many homeowners, chances are you don’t think about your plumbing until something goes wrong. A plumbing problem can have a significant impact on your daily life, and will require the services of a Sacramento plumber. Drain clogs are one of the most common plumbing issues, but can often be prevented with a bit of forethought. Grease and fat can build up along the walls of pipes, eventually preventing water from passing through. Be sure to dispose of grease and other food substances such as coffee grounds and starchy pasta in the garbage—not down the drain. Hair is another common culprit when it comes to drain clogs, so use a hair trap to minimize the amount that goes down the shower drain. Check out this Infographic to learn more about common causes of drain clogs and what you can do to prevent them. Please share with your friends and family.

The Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters

Next time you take a look at your energy bill, bear this in mind: almost one third of the money you’re paying goes toward heating water. According to the U.S. Energy Information Agency, the average energy bill for a U.S. consumer is $111.08, so your water heater may be costing you dearly. A simple appliance upgrade could cut those costs significantly by the time your next bill comes up. Read on for a look at the benefits of installing a tankless water heater.

Conserve energy

A traditional heater works by storing water, and heating it constantly, even when you’re not using it. This accounts for the high energy cost. A tankless water heater only draws power when you are using it to get hot water. In a tankless water heater, water from your water main runs through a set of heating coils and is instantly brought up to the temperature you want for showers, baths, or dish washing.

Save space

Conventional water heater tanks take up a great deal of space, whether in a utility closet, a garage, or just outside the house. These bulky tanks also have to be looked after, as they are prone to rusting and leaking. You can provide a whole house with plenty of hot water from a tankless heater that is the size of a suitcase. Think of all that free closet space!

Never run out of hot water

Anyone who grew up with siblings knows that there is only so much hot water in a traditional water heater. When that water runs out, you have to wait for the tank to refill with cool water and heat back up to a satisfactory temperature. Tankless water heaters heat the water instantly as it enters the house. As long as you have water coming in, you can have hot water for your shower.

Tankless water heaters increase both cost savings and convenience. If you live in Sacramento and are looking for hot water heater repair or installation, call Ace Plumbing at (916) 455-4548. We also offer emergency plumber services for those times when your old water heater lets you know that it’s time to upgrade.
