In the case of a plumbing emergency, immediate pipe repair is important to reducing the damage that can occur. Some circumstances call for a professional plumbing company to come in to assess and repair the situation. If your pipes have become blocked or damaged, experienced plumbing professionals can restore pipe integrity quickly and efficiently.
Broken or Corroded Pipes
When pipes have become damaged due to deterioration, rust or changes in the shifting soil, they can crack, leak, or become blocked. Frozen pipes can also lead to cracks and collapse. A plumber can find the location of the damaged pipe and perform pipe repair wherever it is needed.
Sinking or Bellied Pipes
Sometimes the pipe itself does not have damage, but the soil beneath it shifts to create a dip in the pipeline. When a pipeline develops a drop or belly, it can collect debris and cause backups or clogs. Correcting this issue involves working around the pipe to restore the structural integrity of the surrounding soil and removing clogged debris from inside the pipe.
Pipe Water Leaks
Although broken or cracked pipes can cause water leaks, the source of a leak is often a worn-out seal in the pipe joint. In the case of a broken seal, the pipe itself may not need repair, but the joints would need to be resealed to restore the integrity of the plumbing. Broken seals can be located outside of or within the house, so addressing them promptly can prevent water damage to surrounding structures.
Even if your pipes and seals are in excellent condition, a professional may be needed to clear a blockage. Although you might be able to clear a simple clog by yourself using home equipment, to reduce the chance of plumbing damage or to clear a severe obstruction, professional pipe equipment and an experienced plumber is needed. Pipes can become clogged by a variety of debris issues.
