A combination of things can collect in your home’s drains and create a clog. Grease and hair are some of the most common clotting elements that stick inside of drains, although anything that won’t readily dissolve in water can add to sludge and contribute to a clog. For West Virginia residents, we offer a variety of techniques for pinpointing and clearing clogs in drains.

What is the best drain cleaning technique?

Electric snakes can eat away at the deepest of clogs, but they can still leave behind grease and sludge. Trench repair requires portions of your yard to be dug up with a backhoe, however, hydrojetting offers an effective alternative that’s much less invasive.

Hydrojetting techniques entail blasting pressured water through your drains to wash away all clogs and clotting matter. Everything is simply washed away, this gives your drain a second life. The pressure of a hydrojetting system can be dialed up to cut through roots that may have invaded your sewer line.

How can I prevent pipes from bursting?

Ice blockages create high pressure environments that result in pipe bursts. Insulation can hinder freezing and the bursts frigid temperatures can initiate. PEX piping, which is a cross-linked polyethylene, is flexible enough to resist freezing more so than traditional copper pipes. We can also install insulating material for your pipes.

Other measures you can take to prevent burst pipes is to avoid introducing corrosive chemicals into your pipe system. Drain cleaners will weaken your pipes and make them more susceptible to bursting.

What are the benefits of tankless water heaters?

Tankless water heaters, also known as demand water heaters, deliver a continuous flow of hot water throughout your home when needed. Cold water is immediately converted into hot water as it passes over the heating elements of the tankless water heater.

Tank-type water heaters, on the other hand, must first heat the water in their reservoir before delivering hot water. After the reservoir of hot water has been expended, there’s a wait period before you can enjoy more hot water.

Tankless water heaters conserve energy by delivering only the amount of hot water you require, rather than heating a tank of standby water. Tankless water heaters are much more compact than tank-types, allowing much more flexibility in their placement than tank-type units.
