Sewer Line Maintenance in Springfield PA

Monday, December 17th, 2012

Chances are that you do not really think about your sewer line very much. When a problem develops with the sewer line on your Springfield PA property, though, it is impossible to ignore. A damaged or burst sewer line is quite unpleasant. It is unsanitary and can do some major damage to your home as well as requiring some costly repair services. The best way to prevent a problem from developing with your sewer line is to take the time to learn about some basic sewer line maintenance. Here are some tips from the plumbing experts at Wm. Henderson Plumbing & Heating.

When it comes to the condition of your sewer line, a preventive approach is certainly the best way to go. Routine maintenance from a qualified, fully certified Springfield PA plumber is indispensable. The fact of the matter is that you just cannot see into your pipes to locate a problem. A professional plumber, on the other hand, has the tools and the training to do just that.

Using technology such as video camera pipe inspection equipment your professional plumbing service provider can find and resolve any small, developing problems with your sewer line before serious damage is done. This is far preferable to a reactive approach in which you wait for the damage to happen before addressing the problem. Be aware of your sewer line and keep an eye out for any early warning signs, such as frequently clogged drains or backed up toilets, which may indicate a problem.

The sooner than any problems with the drain or sewer lines in your Springfield PA home can be resolved the better. No problem is too small to merit the evaluation of a qualified, professional plumber. Contact Wm. Henderson Plumbing & Heating the moment you suspect an issue with your sewer system. Be sure to schedule routine maintenance to greatly reduce the risk of sewer line problems in your home.

Ardmore, PA Plumber’s Tip: 3 Top Reasons to Go Trenchless

Monday, December 10th, 2012

At Wm. Henderson Plumbing & Heating Inc., we provide trenchless technology for sewer and water line replacements throughout the Ardmore, PA area. Our plumbers are experts in their field and can get your line replaced before you know it with this advanced technology. We also minimize damage to your property with trenchless methods, which is just one of the many benefits of using this technology.

Are you facing a sewer or water line replacement? We’ve put together three of the top reasons to go trenchless. Call us any time to set up a consultation.

1. Trenchless Pipe Replacement is Cost-Effective

When our plumbers use trenchless technology, they only need to dig a couple of small holes to insert a cable that is attached to a hydraulic machine. The pressure from the machine allows the cable to burst or remove the old line as the new line is being installed. This makes it more cost-effective than spending hours of labor digging a trench in your yard.

2. Minimizes Damage to Your Yard

Because trenchless requires only a minimal amount of digging, you know that you can count on less damage to your property, landscaping, and patios. This avoids digging up trees, unless they are the cause of the problem. If you know that roots have finding their way into your sewer line, you can save yourself the hassle of having a line replaced by having the trees removed, or you can ask about relocating the line during replacement.

3. Faster Repair

In addition to less labor costs, you get your water or sewer line replaced faster. That means you get to get back to your daily routine ASAP.

Call the Ardmore, PA plumbers at Wm. Henderson Plumbing & Heating Inc. if you have questions or would like to schedule a video pipe inspection.

Broomall Plumbing Question: When is a Sewer Line Replacement Necessary?

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

At Wm. Henderson Plumbing & Heating Inc., we’ve been replacing sewer lines in Broomall, PA for many years. We thought it would be helpful for our customers if they had a quick guide to show them when it was time to call a plumber to replace their sewer line.

What Causes the Need for Sewer Line Replacement?

Sewer lines are buried in your yard so it seems strange that they could be damaged or crack. But like all things in the world, the passage of time just wears things out. Here are a couple of reasons that your sewer line might need to be replaced.

  • Tree roots – This is by far the most common cause of sewer line damage. As tree roots search for water in the ground beneath your yard, your sewer line can quickly become an ideal source. You use your sewer line every single day so there is constantly water flowing through it. The tree roots slowly work their way between the joints in the pipes. Eventually, they can block the entire pipe or crush it causing leaks and cracks.
  • Natural disasters – Sometimes the force of an earthquake, hurricane or tornado can cause your sewer line to break.

How to Tell if Your Sewer Line is Broken

Even though your sewer line is buried deep in your yard, there are some tell-tale signs that it is in trouble and might need to be replaced.

  • Soft spot in the yard – If you start to notice soggy spots in your yard, it could mean that your sewer line is leaking water.
  • Raised spot – Depending upon the type of soil in your yard, leaking water from your sewer line might actually form a bump in your yard.
  • Smell sewage – Another sign that your sewer line is leaking is that you start to smell sewage around your yard.
  • Clogged drains – If your toilet, shower and other fixtures stop draining properly, it might be a sign that your sewer line is broken.

If you’re experiencing any of these issues, it’s probably time to call a plumber to your Broomall home. These types of problems don’t fix themselves and the longer you wait the worse it will be. Give Wm. Henderson Plumbing & Heating Inc. a call today.
