Chula Vista Drain Cleaning Pros
Blue Planet is ready for your drain cleaning needs in Chula Vista, California, including the toughest problems with home kitchen and restaurant grease clogs. Snaking (also called cabling) solves most problems, but often provides only temporary relief from extensive build up of grease and grime. Based on an in-pipe camera inspection we may recommend hydro jetting. This method of drain cleaning uses high-pressure water and special nozzles to scrub the insides of pipes, clearing out all grease, sludge, and even debris to leave the inside of your drains in like-new condition.
Leak Detection Experts
Older plumbing, especially the galvanized pipes installed in the 1970s and before can spring a leak just about anywhere. But that can even be an issue for copper piping. Have you noticed damp, warm, or discolored spots? A wet spot or extra-lush area of grass outdoors? Don’t ignore these symptoms or you’re likely to end up with mold, water damage, and even structural damage. Yet the actual problem might not be at the same place as where symptoms show up. Fortunately with Blue Planet there’s no longer any need to break into walls, floors, or ceilings in an ongoing effort to track down the problem as is often the case with other Coronado local plumbers.
Blue Planet specialists use the latest in electronic leak detection instruments. After a sensitive pressure test to determine if there is indeed a problem we’ll first use special gear to determine the location of hidden pipes. Then we’ll use electronic leak detection meters to trace down those pipes and pinpoint the problem. In some situations we may pressurize pipes with a a safe eco-friendly gas and use our acoustic gear to track down the hiss of escaping gas.
Experienced Slab Leak Repair
Various types of pipes — water supply, hot and cold water lines, sewer lines, radiant heating, and so on — may lie underneath the concrete floor slab. That makes both detection and repair especially difficult. You may only notice tell-tale symptoms such as odors or mildew on carpet, or nothing other than an increase in usage on your water bill. Ignoring these clues could lead to big problems. Water released under the slab slowly but surely erodes the ground beneath the building, usually leading to uneven settling to cracks in the floor (often hidden by carpet or other flooring), walls, or even ceiling and eventually significant structural damage.
To make matters worse, removing flooring and breaking through concrete is expensive and a major inconvenience. So precise location is especially important, and guides the choice of solution that minimizes disruption and costs. Depending on the location of the problem and the overall condition of your plumbing you should have at least a couple of options. Spot slab leak repair jack-hammers through the slab and replaces the bad section of pipe. Re-piping solves the current issues and makes future fixes easier by re-routing new pipes around the outside of the slab floor. For several small holes in the pipe it may be possible to coat the existing pipe with a non-toxic inner lining.
Advanced Sewer Cleaning, Chula Vista, California
All drains and toilets eventually connect up to a single line that then connects to the city main sewer at the street. If several fixtures are clogged or slow running you may well need sewer cleaning. Here, clogs can also come from tree roots or damaged pipe, and improper installation years ago may be a contributing factor. Our in-pipe video inspections are far faster and more accurate in determining the location and nature of the problem, avoiding the extensive digging for “exploration” of older methods Depending on what we find, we may recommend snaking, augering, hydro jetting (that can even remove the vast majority of tree roots), or repair. As with slab leak repair, sewer cleaning can in some cases be expensive and disruptive. You’ll want an want experienced expert, a fully licensed local plumber, to correctly assess the situation and help you choose the least-cost, least-disruptive, and/or longest-lasting solution
