Sewers located underground in your yard carry wastewater away from your home for treatment. In the past, damage to sewer pipes and drains could only be repaired through excavation of the pipes to replace them. Excavation is a time-consuming, costly, and destructive process. Today, there is a faster, easier, and greener alternative. Trenchless technology allows your plumber to repair sewer overflows, blockages, and broken or leaking pipes without excavating a large portion of your property. To repair your sewer with trenchless technology, only a single small area of ground must be excavated to provide access to the pipe. Trenchless pipe technology allows extensive repairs to be made while preserving your landscaping, yard, driveway, sidewalk, and street. This modern sewer solution is not only minimally invasive, but is also affordable and convenient.

Plumbing problems can occur at any time of the night or day. Broken pipes and faucets can quickly lead to floods that waste water and damage your belongings, furnishings, and décor. During a plumbing emergency, taking quick action and contacting a plumber immediately will minimize damage and stress.
Turn Off the Water
Toilets, sinks, and appliances such as dishwashers and washing machines are equipped with a nearby shutoff valve that cuts water flow to the fixture in the event of an emergency. These small silver or gray valves are typically located on the wall near the floor. Toilet shutoff valves are often found below and behind the toilet bowl, while a sink shutoff valve may be hidden inside the cabinetry that supports the sink. Once you locate the valve, turn it clockwise until the incoming water flow ceases. If you cannot find the appliance’s shutoff valve or you are experiencing a broken pipe or leaking outdoor faucet, you should instead turn off the main water supply to your home. Your home’s main shutoff valve can be found near your water meter. This shutoff valve may be either a circular valve or a lever. Turn the circular valve clockwise or pull the lever until it is perpendicular to your pipe to shut off your water main.
If you are experiencing a severe clog in your plumbing, avoid the use of chemical drain cleaners to clear it. These harsh solutions can warp plumbing pipes, damage finishes, and burn your skin. Instead, use a plunger to try loosening the clog mechanically. You may need to plunge the drain several times before the clog can be dislodged. If you aren’t successful in removing a clog with a plunger, it’s time to call your plumber for professional assistance.

Hiring a professional plumber will ensure repairs are made quickly and effectively to solve any plumbing issue. However, it’s important to evaluate any potential plumbing contractor to make certain you receive the quality of service you expect.
Any plumber you hire should be licensed and insured—you can check with your city or state’s regulatory board to verify this information.
