Bermuda Dunes Drain Cleaning
We have the skills and equipment rooter-only Bermuda Dunes companies lack. We’ll diagnose the problem, using our advanced inspection equipment when appropriate, and discuss our findings with you before we begin.
Kitchen clogs are usually the result of grease building up. As deposits grow they reduce flow, and eventually plug up. As you may have already found out, liquid drain cleaners are usually ineffective and using a plunger may solve the problem for a few days or weeks. With hardened grease all along a length of pipe, it’s even tough to do a thorough drain cleaning job by cabling with a drain snake. Especially with older homes, water jetting may be the best approach to a long-lasting solution.
Slow-flowing or clogged drains in the bathroom or laundry room are usually a much easier problem. In the bath, it’s usually a combination of hair or soaks scum and in the laundry a combination of lint and fabric softener. Liquid drain cleaners are often effective. If not, snaking provides a complete drain cleaning solution.
All your drains and toilets join up to a single sewer line (technically a lateral) going out to the Bermuda Dunes sewer main. So even if your toilets aren’t backing up you may need sewer cleaning. That’s especially true if several fixtures are having problems. Foreign objects and tree root intrusions are the most common culprits, but the problem could also be a buildup of grease and grime or a collapsed sewer pipe.
We’ll often do an in-pipe video camera inspection to understand the problem and determine its location. In doing so we can also inspect the condition of your sewer line. Besides the usual “toolkit” of drain snakes and augers, we have high-pressure water jetting equipment for a more thorough job.
Our hydro-jetting equipment can clear the most stubborn drain and sewer clogs, even cutting through most tree roots. That often means that our sewer cleaning can clear the blockage without digging up your yard or jack-hammering through concrete or asphalt. Removing every last bit of grease, grime, and sludge it leaves your drain and sewer pipes clean as new for a long-lasting solution.
The technology uses high-pressure water and specially designed nozzles to create jets that blast away buildup and cut through obstructions. It’s safe and damage-free, but just to make sure we’ll inspect the condition of your pipes beforehand.
Leak Detection in Bermuda Dunes
OK, you’ve spotted a damp area or done your own leak detection tests. Can’t find the problem, or still not sure if you have a leak? We can perform more sensitive pressure tests to be sure. What comes after that? It’s the 21st century — don’t put up with a Bermuda Dunes plumber or handyman making holes in your walls or floors trying to track down where a leak is. Beyond electronic pipe location equipment, our experts have the training and electronic leak location instruments to non-destructively pinpoint the location.
Slab Leak Repair
Sometimes it turns out that a leak is underneath the concrete floor slab (most buildings in the Bermuda Dunes use slab-on-grade construction). That’s often a big problem, as traditionally slab leak repair meant removing the flooring and hacking through several inches of concrete to make a spot repair in the pipe. Then restoring everything. Needless to say, that’s expensive and disruptive. And there’s no guarantee that another fitting or section of pipe won’t spring a leak.
There’s usually a better option. Re-piping routes new pipe around the outside of the floor slab, fixing the problem and making future problems years and years away. A relatively new technology, pipe coating, seals the inside of under-floor pipes. This type of slab leak repair is especially suitable for pinhole leaks.
Hot Water Heaters
Often accounting for as much as 25% of your home’s energy use, your hot water heater shouldn’t be neglected. Over the years its efficiency can drop by half! But annual maintenance (such as a drain-and-flush and checking the protective anode) can prevent that and add years to its lifetime.
Lots of companies serving Bermuda Dunes “specialize” in water heaters, but we’re true experts in maintenance, repair, replacement, and new-construction installation. Our people are not on commission, and thanks to our years of experience we’ll quote a flat rate. Whether for a water heater installation or a hot water heater repair, you’ll know the full cost up front. We know your daily home or business routine matters, so our services are available 24 hours a day, and replacement as well as repair jobs typically take just a few hours, often even less.
Whether gas or electric, we have the training, experience, and parts. Our diagnostic experts will quickly track down the exact cause of your problem, such as no or not enough hot water, smelly or discolored hot water, and leaks. For gas water heaters they’ll also be on the lookout for carbon monoxide hazards and any need for burner adjustments.
Replacements and New Installations
Most residential models have tank sizes between 30 and 100 gallons. Commercial models go larger, and some models are more durable than others. Besides checking for proper sizing we’ll help you make the right tradeoffs of installation costs, expected lifetime, and energy costs. It’s important to keep the 2015 federal minimum efficiency standards in mind and not casually oversize the tank. Going above 55 gallons requires advanced heat exchanger technologies for gas water heaters, and for electric water heaters, there’s a big jump to heat pump technologies. Those have some pretty significant installation cost increases but will save you money in the long run.
Tankless Water Heaters
Or you could avoid a tank all together! Meeting even part of your needs with a tankless water heater can save you money, energy, and water. Plus provide the added convenience of an endless supply (no waiting for tank temperatures to recover) and if located at the point-of-use, essentially instant hot water. They’ve been in use for decades in Europe and Japan, both outperforming and outlasting storage tank designs. We’ll help you choose the right thing to do for your budget and for the environment, explaining the pros and cons of all your options.
