    A Quick Look at Trenchless Water Line Technology

    Last updated 1 month ago

    As technology advances, virtually every industry is affected. The plumbing industry now benefits from the convenient use of trenchless water line technology. Keep reading for a quick look at trenchless water line technology and how it can benefit your home or business.

    Whereas water line replacement was previously very invasive and often yielded damaged walkways and driveways, trenchless water line technology completes the same procedure without the destruction. Instead of digging up your yard with heavy machinery, trenchless water line technology seeks to replace your water lines in a cleaner way: by pulling new lines through the older ones. This procedure can be done quickly and does not leave the same mess behind as its traditional counterpart. Trenchless water line technology is especially convenient when it comes to replacing water lines that exist under your home.

    For more information about trenchless water line technology, please feel free to call Ace Plumbing at (866) 999-4703. We are a Sacramento based plumbing service that provides sewer and heating repair as well as drain cleaning.

    Debunking Some Common Plumbing Myths

    Last updated 2 months ago

    There are a lot of misconceptions surrounding plumbing. While some of these myths and half-truths are harmless, others can result in serious plumbing problems. For example, it doesn’t hurt to believe that Thomas Crapper invented the toilet (he didn’t), but thinking that liquid drain cleaners dissolve everything may prevent you from hiring the Sacramento plumber you really need to remove a stubborn clog. To help you keep your plumbing in tip-top shape, here is the truth behind some common plumbing myths.

    Myth: Leaky Faucets are No Big Deal

    A few drops of water now and then never hurt anybody, right? Wrong! Even minor leaks can waste hundreds or even thousands of gallons of water every year. Not only will this lead to higher water bills, but it may also lead to water damage depending on the location and extent of the leak. Once a faucet starts dripping, call your plumber to stop the leak and save you money.

    Myth: Lemon Peels Will Make the Garbage Disposal Smell Good

    Though technically not a myth, what people fail to recognize is that lemon peels can clog the drain if it’s not powerful enough to completely cut through the peels. If you want to freshen up your garbage disposal without getting anything stuck, pour some white vinegar down the drain.

    Myth: Flushable Wipes are Flushable

    “Flushable wipes” may be one of the most misleading product names in the world. Flushable wipes don’t biodegrade like toilet paper and can cause serious plumbing problems. If your household has been flushing wipes down the toilet, contact your plumber to inspect your drain lines and clear out any clogs before they cause bigger problems.

    Signs of a Hidden Plumbing Leak

    Last updated 2 months ago

    Notice a spike in your water bills or a musty odor in your home? You might have a leak on your hands. While a leaking faucet or toilet is easy enough to spot, hidden leaks can be incredibly hard to detect until the damage has already been done. The following signs may indicate that you need to hire a Sacramento plumber to fix a hidden plumbing leak before things get worse.

    Mold or Mildew

    One of the most obvious signs of a hidden plumbing leak is mold or mildew growing on your walls or ceilings. While it’s normal for a small amount of mildew to occur wherever water accumulates, such as in the corner of a shower or around a sink, mold or mildew growing on walls or ceilings is a clear sign that a pipe is leaking somewhere inside your home.

    Musty Odor

    Sometimes you can’t see mold or mildew, but you can smell it. A musty odor may be a sign that mold or mildew is growing inside your walls. It can also be the result of old, accumulated water from a leaky pipe. If, after thoroughly cleaning your restroom, you still notice a musty or earthy smell, contact your plumber to inspect for a hidden leak in your home’s plumbing system.

    Damaged Walls

    Warping, water-stained walls are another clear indication that you have a plumbing leak. Drywall becomes soft and begins to bubble after being exposed to moisture, ultimately warping and breaking into pieces. Your plumber may need to tear out the drywall to repair the leak, which will provide you with an opportunity to replace it with new, dry material.
