What Happens During a Slab Leak Repair?
Slab leaks are no small matter. When water is leaking under your foundation, it is imperative that you get it fixed right away. But sometimes it can be difficult to even detect. We use video cameras to pinpoint the exact location of the leak.
For newer plumbing, we usually do a spot repair, meaning we open the slab and repair the problematic area. For older plumbing that has a track record of leaking, we usually suggest to replace or reroute the entire line. In other cases, pipes can have a series of small leaks. When they are small, applying epoxy to the inside of the pipe is smart and cost-effective in light of changing the line.
A slab leak is considered a plumbing emergency.; If you need a 24-hour plumber, trust A & W Plumbing and Heating, Inc. for trusted repair. Our team is available around the clock for your safety and convenience.
How Do Professionals Handle Water Heater Maintenance?
If our team comes to perform a routine tune-up for your water heater, you can expect them to check for four main things. They’ll first check for sediment, which entails draining the basin and cleaning out any buildup. Buildup can create a lot of problems over time. Next, they’ll inspect the unit and hoses for any hairline cracks or signs of aging that could cause issues later on. They’ll check and change your filters if needed, and they’ll determine if your unit is operating efficiently. Tune-ups like these are effective if you want to keep your energy bill lower and prolong the longevity of your unit.

How to Avoid Pesky Drain Clogs
Drain clogs are always frustrating. A few simple habits to avoid them can make a world of difference in your piping system. Try to keep food scraps out of your kitchen drains by disposing of it in the trash before you wash dishes. Even if you have a disposal, never dump grease down the drain. Pour it into a sealable container and place it in the trash after it cools. Keep hair out of bathroom drains by placing screens over the openings. Keep anything out of the toilet except toilet paper, and be sure to schedule regular drain cleanings to keep your plumbing the best it can be.
