Why Do Pipes Burst?
Pipe bursts can happen for a number of reasons. Freezing temperatures can cause the water inside pipes to freeze, which expands, unit the pipes eventually burst. Major clogs will cause water pressure to build-up, and aging pipes over the years will corrode, crack, and could eventually burst. Tree roots often pose major problems to pipes or even a shift in the ground.
If you’re experiencing a burst pipe, don’t wait! Call A & W Plumbing and Heating, Inc. for emergency plumbing service. Our team is available for 24-hour burst pipe and plumbing repairs for your safety.
What Goes Into a Water Heater Tune-Up?
Is your water temperature just not keeping up like it used to? If you have a professional come to your home or business to tune up your water heater, this is what you can expect. They will first drain the basin and remove any sediment buildup, which can create a myriad of issues if not done regularly. They will inspect both the inside and outside of the unit, along with the hoses, for hairline cracks or signs of aging that could result in more extreme problems later on. They’ll change your filters if needed and determine if the unit is operating and maximum efficiency.
This is good to have done if you suspect any leaks or hear excessive noise.

Is Hydro-Jetting Good for Drain Cleaning?
Hydro-jetting is a minimally invasive way to clear heavy debris from your drains and sewer pipes. It consists of spraying a highly pressurized stream of water through your piping system to clear out any debris or buildup on the inside of your pipes. This is good for you because grime and other blockages in your plumbing can create odors, slow drains, and mineral or scale build-up.
Prior to hydro-jetting, when drains required a professional cleaning for blockage, plumbers would drill a small hole in the pipe to extract the clog. Now, this process more thoroughly cleans the entirety of your lines and does not compromise the integrity of your piping.
