  • Water Line Replacements: Water Main Problems

    Unfortunately, there are aspects of owning a home that a plunger can’t fix, such a water line and water main problems. Which is why professional repair is a must. But how do you know when that times comes?

    Your water main is the main pipe in your system that pushes the water into your home for your cooking, cleaning and bathing. The water main is buried underground and connects from your home to the city’s water meter. These mains are not built to last forever, they can crack, clog and more due to nature. These issues can eventually lead to contaminated water, so if this occurs you need to shut your water off immediately and call Terry’s Plumbing.

  • What is a water main?

    The water main is the primary pipe tasked with bringing water into your home for things like cooking, cleaning, bathing, etc. The water main is buried underground and connects your home to the city’s water meter. Remember – the water main is not the private sewer lateral, which carries wastewater and sewage away from your property.

  • Common Water Main Problems

    Water mains are not meant to last forever. Over time, cracks and holes can develop in your water main due to a number of things that include tree roots, erosion, corrosion, and more. Due to external factors as well as the pressure the put on them by the ground, your water main could burst, causing water to flow out and flood the yard, basement, street or other surrounding areas. This problem could cost thousands in repairs.  Additionally, this could lead to contaminated water flowing into your home. If this happens, shut off your water right away.

    The water shut off valve is located somewhere inside the house, and it shuts off the water supply to the entire home. There is any number of places that your water shut off valve could be. However, many times this shutoff valve is in the basement. You can identify the water valve because it will have a meter for measuring water usage.

  • How to Detect Plumbing Leaks

    When it comes to your plumbing system, leaking pipes and valves are a common problem. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to figure out where the leak is coming from. You may notice some signs of leakage such as water stains on walls and ceilings or an increase in your plumbing bill. However, the only way to know if your plumbing is leaking is to turn all water fixtures off and look at your water meter. If it’s still running, there’s water in the system, and the means your plumbing is leaking somewhere.

  • Burst & Frozen Pipe Repair

    Is your plumbing system prepared to handle extremely cold temperatures? During the winter and times of extreme cold, it’s not uncommon for pipes inside your home to freeze and burst, which could cost you thousands in repairs. When this happens, Terry’s Plumbing is here to provide the fast, emergency service when you need it most!

  • Causes of Frozen Pipes

    In the Metro-East area, you never know how cold it’s going to get. During cold snaps, it’s entirely possible that you’ll have pipe freeze problems. However, you can prevent this problem from happening. Here are some of the causes of frozen pipes:

  • • Furnace turned off causing pipes to freeze.
    • Poor insulation in walls, attic, basement, & crawlspaces.

  • • Drafty areas by pipes and plumbing components.
    • Failing to winterize outdoor spigots.

  • Preventing Pipe Freeze

    You can help prevent frozen and burst pipes with the following preventative measures:

    • Keep furnace on during winter and no lower than 55 degrees when away.
    • Install proper insulation in walls, attic, basement, crawlspace, garage, etc.
    • Drip your faucets by allowing a small trickle of water in the highest faucet.
    • Properly winterize sprinkler lines and outdoor spigots.
    • Turn off main water shut off when the frozen pipe is detected. (prevents burst pipes)

  • Proper Pipe Insulation

    Insulation is one of the easiest things you can do to maintain your plumbing system and limit energy costs. Hot water pipes that aren’t insulated are losing heat as they deliver the water to the plumbing fixture. On the water hand, cold water pipes and other plumbing components that aren’t properly insulated could cost you for repairs and replacements when they burst because of extremely cold winter temperatures. Talk to a Terry’s Plumbing professional about proper insulation for your system this winter!
