How to Keep your Drains Clean
Over time, your drains can become clogged with grease, hair, food and other sediment. These clogs are harmful to your pipes and cause water to drain slowly and can even cause burst pipes in extreme cases.
Protect your pipes and drains with professional drain cleaning services. We recommend getting this done at least once per year to ensure your drains are running properly. Between cleanings, there are several steps you can take to ensure clogs do not develop:
- Install food and hair screens over the drains in your sink and tub.
- Never pour grease down the drain.
- Run hot water down your drains at least once per week to quickly flush out any sediment before it has a chance to harden.
By following these steps and investing in regular cleanings, you can protect your home from the inconvenience of nasty clogged drains.
Water Leak Detection Methods
At Perry Plumbing Heating & Air, we employ several innovative methods to locate water leaks in your home. If you suspect a leak, we will use one or more of these methods to pinpoint the location and severity of the problem:
By testing the water pressure in your pipes and comparing it to the water pressure in a healthy pipe, we can determine if there is a leak.
Using the most advanced technology, we are able to take photos of your pipes at multiple angles with an infrared camera. This way, we can see exactly what is going on inside your walls.
Dig and Drill
As the most invasive method and last resort, digging and drilling involves digging into your walls or drilling into the floor to spot the leak. The benefit of this method is that once the leak is located, we already have access to it to start the repair.
