DIY Plumbing Repair: Finding Out How to Do the Job

How To Install A Tankless Water Heater

Trenchless sewer repairs are the latest technology from the world of plumbing. I can remember many years ago having a burst pipe at my house. When the [post_name] plumbers arrived they told my parents that they would have to tear up the entire front yard, as well as our driveway. I was in high school then, and I will never forget the look on my mother's face as she looked over to her rose garden. She had spent so much time getting it just the way she wanted it, and now it was all going to be destroyed. I was in college by the time working in her garden made her happy again.

This is am amazing new technology that is now available. When you are faced with a broken or burst pipe, you will probably want to learn more about trenchless sewer replacement.


What Is a Septic Tank?

How Does A Tankless Water Heater Work

Septic tank systems are common in rural areas. Homes that are not attached to a municipal sewer system use these as a form of sewage treatment. A septic system carries the waste from a home into the septic tank. Regular maintenance and checks are required to keep it all working the way it should. Over a period of time, the sludge builds up in the container. It is necessary to pump out this sludge and keep the tank working the way it should.

Symptoms Of A Choked Septic Tank.

There are some distinct symptoms that indicate a sludge build up and you will need to hire the services of a reliable septic tank cleaning company in [post_name] to have it cleaned out once every few years. These personnel are trained in carrying out sewage treatment and pumping. You should call them the minute you detect foul odor in the vicinity of your home. Water accumulation in the yard or above the container is another indicator that there is a blockage. Do not delay in calling them the minute you notice any of these indicators.

Professional cleaning companies have trucks that have powerful vacuums attached to them. They carry out the job in an efficient manner. The tank will have some water in it even when the sludge has been cleaned out. This is very normal and cleaning the tank regularly is very important.

Septic Pumping - Do You Want to Save Money?

Water Heater Tankless

On Memorial Day weekend, 2002, we noticed a strong septic odor in the yard. I traced the odor down to the septic tank. After digging up the cover and removing it I soon discovered that the tank was completely full of wastewater. I frantically called in the experts including pumpers, system installer and soil testers. I heard comments like "sorry I can't help you", "we can try jetting the lines", "we can put a new system in that will be much better", "your lucky it lasted this long". Well, after these comments and the $15,000 bid to replace the system, not including the tree removal (another $2,500), landscape restoration (another $2,000) and staircase/deck demolition and rebuild (another $3,500) I decided that there MUST be a better solution! The quest began and the rest is history!

Understanding Your Septic System

If you are like me and the rest of the world, you probably had no idea on how your septic system works. You may have learned from your parents that the system should be pumped regularly, or maybe you learned that they never need pumping! There are many wives tales about putting a dead chicken in the tank every so often, or yeast cakes, "magic" bugs, etc. If you added any one of these remedies, "your septic system would last forever and it would have an infinite life expectancy"! If you're reading this article you now know that these wives tales simply aren't true!

Your septic system is a combination of a mechanical and biological system.
The mechanical portions of modern systems are very durable. Materials like concrete, PVC plastic, fired clay pipe will last a long time under ground. Materials like steel and cast iron and asphalitic pipe are not very common anymore and most of these material have failed and been replaced with newer durable materials.

The biological portion of your systems is generally robust, however it can be upset by abuse such as system overloading and dumping excess materials into the system for which it is not designed to handle such as paint materials, thinners, bleach, anti-bacterial products, and non-organic materials such as wrappers, cigarette butts, etc.

In the perfect world the biological process is 100% efficient. By this time in your life I am sure you have come to realize that we live in a less than perfect world and therefore things in our life crop up that we must deal with! This topic is no ones favorite and you have probably learned more about your septic system in the past few weeks than you wanted.

Perceived Solutions

The problems in our lives usually occur at the least opportune moment. They may be financial, timing or personal grief. Unfortunately we must use the cards we are dealt. In the case of your septic system we must rely on the local "experts". Again, unfortunately, the local [post_name] "experts" may have limited knowledge on subjects beyond their respective profession. The pumpers are great at pumping, the plumbers are great at plumbing and the installers are great at installing. Most likely, none of these contractors fully understand both the mechanical and biological process. Because of this, they attempt to sell you their service or solution, none of which will ultimately solve your septic system problem. Out of frustration, you turn to the internet to begin research on your own. A quick "Google" search leads you to hundreds of web pages that make claims of solving your septic system problem forever. These companies can supply the magic "bugs" or "chemical" that you simply flush down the drain and your problems are solved! If you read on you will fully understand why the aforementioned "solutions" will not resolve your septic system problem.

Frequent Pumping - Many pumpers will gladly pump your system anytime you call them. It can take weeks for the bacteria in a septic tank to re-populate and stabilize. During this period, the wastewater is not being fully treated and very strong wastewater is flowing to the field. The added "food" in this wastewater allows the accelerated growth of the bio-mat.

Conclusion: Frequent pumping can do more harm than good because the wastewater flowing to the field has more "food" in it because the system is not been given adequate time to stabilize. Short term you will get some relief until the tank fills again.

The REAL Solution to Resolving Your Septic System Problems

By now you should understand how your septic system works and why it fails. You should also be able to identify the fact from the fiction coming from the local "expert" or the savvy internet marketing web site that prey on desperate homeowners needs. You will now learn about a little known technology that is scientifically based, has over 100 years of application history, has over a 95% success rate, requires no excavation, requires no chemicals or additives and boasts a 100% money-back guarantee.

This process is called "Aerobic Bio-Remediation". The process, application and the equipment has been developed and introduced by Aero-Stream®, LLC. Additionally, the process has been awarded a U.S. Patent!

The Technology: The aerobic treatment of wastewater has been in use for more than 100 years. Nearly every municipal wastewater treatment plant utilizes aerobic treatment as one of their primary treatment process. This process is robust, fast and efficient at cleaning the wastewater. Aero-Stream® applies this same technology to your current septic system with virtually no significant change to your components or systems. Just as the large municipal wastewater treatment plants do, the aerobic treatment of the wastewater in your septic tank is processesed to reduce the strength of the organic material leaving the tank by some 70% - 80%. Because the food source for the biomat is significantly reduced the biomat begins to starve and die. When the biomat dies, it breaks down and becomes permeable again. In addition to the starvation of the biomat, the oxygen rich laden water with aerobic bacteria flows into the field. The aerobic bacteria also have an appetite for the biomat further reducing the bio-mat.

The Success Rate: The Aero-Stream® process equipment has been installed across the U.S. in nearly every type of system configuration and soil type. The process boasts a 95% success rate! The most common reason for unsuccessful remediation is the lack of adequate time for the remediation to occur. Homeowners in [post_name] want or need their system repaired quickly. Even though the Aero-Stream® process shows significant results in 6 -8 weeks, sometimes that is not fast enough!

The Cost: The Aero-Stream® process and equipment is substantially less expensive than any other proven solution. When comparing the typical Aero-Stream® installation to the lowest cost absorption field replacement, the Aero-Stream® solution is 85% less expensive. When compared to the average cost absorption field, the Aero-Stream® solution is 90% less expensive, and 93% less expensive on a high cost absorption field replacement.


Trenchless Sewer Replacement - Plumbers Use Trenchless Sewer Technology to Repair Leaking Pipes

How To Install A Tankless Water Heater

One common plumbing problem that often occurs at the most inconvenient of times is a clogged drain. Many [post_name] home owners are tempted to reach for a bottle of their favorite drain cleaner - they are easy to use, supposed to be quick, and you don't have to get your hands dirty. The problem with quick fixes - as with many things in life - is that the quick fix may not be the best.

Most drain cleaners these days will not damage your plumbing when properly used. The key is to make sure that you use them properly. If your home has a septic system, make sure that any cleaner specifies it is safe for use in septic systems. Different types of drain clog removers may target different types of problems and have different instructions, make sure you follow them to get the maximum effectiveness.

Sometimes a liquid cleaner will not be enough to take care of the problem. A number of years ago we received a lesson in what not to put down your food disposal - cantaloupe rinds. The disposal had no problem grinding them up, but a few feet down the drain they re-assembled into am impassable clog.

The first attempt was the faithful old plunger. A plunger works on the concept of hydraulic pressure (simply put, you cannot compress a liquid) to move the blockage. The problem with this approach in a kitchen or bathroom sink is that the drain may not be the only outlet - there are often multiple drains and/or overflow connections which make a plunger useless in these cases

The next step was to try and remove the sink trap. Once you get to this phase, you need to make sure you have a bucket and a few towels handy. If you had previously attempted to clear the clog using a chemical drain cleaner you need to be careful here as there may still be residue in the sink, pipes, or trap. Before removing the trap, make sure to drain as much of the sink water as you can.

A couple problems to be aware of with these systems: If you have PVC drain fittings (as many sinks do), you better make sure you connections are good - if there are any minor leaks or loose fittings you are likely to end up with a sprinkler system under your sink. From personal experience there is one other problem you may run into. When you turn off the hose, the pressure that previously swelled the nozzle to hold it in place is gone - however there is still water and pressure in both the line and the nozzle. The results similar to shaking up a soda bottle and removing the cap - it makes a great funny story to tell you friends in hindsight, but it's not quite so funny when you are mopping up the kitchen.

Finally, if none of the above have worked, it is time to call in the professionals. As I have noted in previous articles, a good [post_name] plumbing contractor is worth every penny they charge you. Most will not only help you out with your problem but will also suggest how you can prevent it in the future and if necessary point out problems that need to be addressed.

Tankless Water Heaters - Why You Must Install a Tankless Unit

Water Pipe Leak Repair Tape

You are suffering from a plumbing crisis at the middle of the night and do not know what to do. Well, instead of making frantic calls to the plumber it is a great idea to learn more about plumbing repairs and how you can do it yourself.

Most of us do not care to learn more about plumbing unless an emergency crops up but knowing about plumbing repairs can help you handle the simple repair needs yourself. Here is a list of some of the common plumbing repair problems along with tips to resolve it.

  • Repairing Plumbing Pipes: Pipes located near sinks and toilets are prone to leakages, frequent freezing, and loud rattling noises. For stopping a leak, you can replace the section of the pipe by using a pipe patch kit. Water hammer or loud plumbing noises in the pipes are caused by pipe's air cambers becoming waterlogged. Turn off the water source behind the chamber that is waterlogged. Now turn the faucet open and allow it to drain thoroughly.
  • Repairing Faucets: Faucet repair is one of the most common plumbing repairs. To repair a dripping faucet, check the washer of the faucet to ensure whether it is working properly to seal the water when the washer is sealed against the faucet seat. If the faucet is noisy then the problem can be attributed to a wrong size washer fitted to the stem or the faucet seat being clogged with debris. Replace the washer and clean the faucet seat to resolve the problem.
  • Repairing a Toilet: Probably one of the most important fixtures in your house is a toilet and one that unfortunately may need quite a few plumbing repairs. Some of the common plumbing repairs are replacing a toilet seat, clearing a clogged toilet or dealing with toilet tank problems. To replace a toilet seat all you need to do is remove the nuts on the hinge and lift up the seat. Place the new toilet seat and screw on the nuts. If you find that the toilet does not flush then check for blockages in the drain and the water level in the tank.

Repairing these simple plumbing problems on your own can save you a lot of money and cut down on the hassle of having to dial a plumber for fixing minor issues.


Septic Drain Field Problems and Repair: What to Look for and How to Get the Help You Need

Hot Water Heater Reviews

Owning your own home in [post_name] can bring a lot of joy but it can also bring about a lot of headaches at the same time. For a lot of homeowners, those headaches will appear in the form of plumbing repairs, an occasion that even the most ardent of do-it-yourself home repair enthusiasts will have to deal with from time to time. Not all of them can be fixed easily, especially if the problem lies in a place that is not easily accessible or if it will take more time than the homeowner is willing to spare. When this happens, it is time to call in the professionals.

The Basic Layout of a Plumbing System

While a [post_name] home owner may feel daunted by the prospect of plumbing repairs, a professional plumber is trained to take on such challenges every single day. They know the layout of a plumbing system inside out and are knowledgeable enough to pinpoint a problem without wasting time making guesses. It is for this reason that we turn to them time and time again to provide all types of plumbing services, from maintenance to emergency problems.

Unclogging Drains

While there are a host of products on the open market that can unclog a drain, not all of them are suitable for use on all plumbing systems, especially if you live in a non-standard housing unit, like a trailer. The pipes used in trailers are of a different grade than standard housing pipes, and may be damaged by the harsh chemicals. And, if the clog is thick enough, the chemicals may not take care of it all and a plumber will need to be called to remove it anyway.

If you have a clog that is backing up a sink or tub, call [post_name] plumbing professionals for plumbing repairs, because it may be more extensive than you might realize. This kind of plumbing repairs can be avoided by doing some simple drain maintenance, like monitoring what goes down it and preventing anything like hair or grease to go in.

Septic Service - Some Dos and Do Nots

Tankless Water Heater Maintenance

On Memorial Day weekend, 2002, we noticed a strong septic odor in the yard. I traced the odor down to the septic tank.

I heard comments like "sorry I can't help you", "we can try jetting the lines", "we can put a new system in that will be much better", "your lucky it lasted this long".

Repairing your plumbing fixtures can be a tedious task. A number of people who are not confident about their plumbing skills now simply trust a professional [post_name] plumber to do the job. Here are certain instances where it could often be more beneficial to call in a plumber.

Blocked Drains

A blocked drain could be due to food particles, hair, tree roots and a number of other things. These drains then cannot carry water out of the house and it could lead to a bad smell or may even cause the water to come back up the drain. Ideally, try using a plunger to get rid of the particles. If the plunger doesn't work, it means that there is a more serious issue with the drain so you should call a professional.

Plumbing can be very tricky. If you are not absolutely sure about what you are doing, there is a chance that you will make it worse than it was before. Instead, it would probably be easier and much quicker to call a plumber as soon as the problem arises instead of waiting for it to get bad. In the long run, it will save you a lot of time and energy.

DIY Plumbing Repair: Finding Out How to Do the Job

Hot Water Heater Cost

Just like with the normal water heaters on the market there are two different types of tankless water heaters. There is the normal gas tankless water heaters and the electric tankless water heaters. This the normal as with all the other types of appliances in the home and many people are on the lookout for a different type of place that can help with everything in the range of gas or electric. The problem is that people tend to believe that these two types of tankless water heaters are actually the same when the exact opposite is true in most cases.

Electric tankless water heaters are the most common type of this system. For the most part there are some distinct differences that one should be aware of. The most common of these differences is in the efficiency of the unit itself. While the electric tankless water heaters are very efficient compared to the standard tank models they are not nearly as efficient as those of the gas models.

One of the major things that people fail to understand is that electricity is never all that efficient when it comes to heating anything. Over the course of time people have noted that more then once a person can adapt well to an all electric home system but they are spending a lot more money.

However, people will notice that the issue heating recovery of the tankless water heaters is the problem that a lot of people will have. Making the change for a bunch of people to electric is not a big deal. They have the best option when it comes to extreme heating which is positive for the people who need to run the systems for eateries or the like where extreme hot water is needed. This is not the case for most water heaters where there is a distinct limit to the amount of heat that can be placed in the water.

Septic Tank Pumping

How To Seal A Leaky Pipe

Septic tanks are a small scale sewage treatment plant and are common in households in rural or semi urban areas where laying a complete sewage system would be too expensive. These waste tanks are used to collect debris and use the waste water to flow into the drainage system. The construction material used for these sewage tanks varies and it could be nothing more than concrete tank with PVC pipes which uses a passive flow system. Nowadays active septic tanks are also being constructed with different materials and varying shapes and sizes.

Many new materials are being used for construction of sewage tanks and the low profile ones occupy less space and are custom designed for houses with low population thus saving space and cost. Depending upon the number of members in the household different types of tanks can be installed. Many manufacturers and shopkeepers also offer services like free installation and advice for the sewage tanks required for the household. Some even offer maintenance for the tanks installed. Commercial bacteria are also being sold to be used in these tanks to help in breaking down the waste.

The most important thing to be kept in mind is that as the waste accumulates over time the solids which settle at the bottom of the tank, after the anaerobic disintegration of the waste by bacterias thereby reducing the effective area of the sewage tank, have to be pumped out and disposed of in the regulatory manner.


DIY Plumbing Repair - Down the Drain

How Does A Tankless Water Heater Work

Tankless water heaters heat water directly without using a storage tank like traditional units. Also known as on-demand, instantaneous, instant-on water heater, this type of unit instantly boil water while it is flowing through the heating device to the plumbing system and faucet. This is a big advantage over the traditional units because the energy used to heat and re-heat water in a traditional unit is saved. Because a tankless unit only heats water when you need it, you get an endless source of hot water, while also saving money on energy costs by not heating and re-heating the same tank of water.

Tankless Water Heater Circle - What Happens When You Boil Water With a Tankless Unit
When you turn on a hot water faucet in the bathroom, kitchen, toilet, laundry or any part of the house, the tankless water heater recognizes the need for hot water and starts the heating process. The system determines the desired output temperature as water circulates through the appliance's heat exchanger, providing continuous hot water. When the hot water faucet is turned off or an appliance such as a dish washer is stopped, the tankless unit shuts down and goes into an energy-saving standby mode until any hot water faucet or appliance is turned on and the circle begins all over again.

Clean Water Supply
Clean, rust-free water is supplied unlike in the traditional types

Longevity and Durability
Tankless units have a life span of 20 years or even more

Environmental Friendly and Less Risk
This type of unit has more green advantages, lower greenhouse emissions and reduced risk of flooding
