Skilled and experienced plumbers understand that plumbing problems affect every home sooner or later, but the type of problem can come in all shapes and sizes. From slow drains to broken pipes and invading tree roots, there are a few common plumbing repairs you should be aware of and keep in check. Here at Roto-Rooter Western Slope, our plumbing company’s technicians have tackled almost every type of plumbing issue. We provide an array of plumbing services in Grand Junction, Aspen, and Glenwood Springs, CO, and nearby areas.
Here are some of the most common problems that require plumbing repairs:
If water sits in your sink or tub before going down the drain, you’re dealing with a slow drain. Usually, this is caused by a clog restricting water flow in the drain. Kitchen sinks are frequently clogged by organic matter like food waste and congealed fat, while bathroom sinks usually have blockages of soap, hair, or dirt. A plumber from our team can fix your slow drains, whether through drain cleaning or a trenchless sewer repair.
Your taps should produce a strong, consistent flow of water when you turn them on. However, if you turn your taps to full blast and the water only trickles out, then you have low water pressure and need plumbing repairs. This is most common in older homes and is usually caused by leaking pipes, sediment build-up, or tree roots.
Just like your drains, your pipes can also become clogged over time. Clogged pipes are usually located deeper in the plumbing system than drain clogs, so cleaning them usually requires specialized plumbing services and equipment like a drain snake or hydro jetting.
Pipes can form small cracks due to age, freezing temperatures, or root invasion. While cracked pipes can start out very small, they will expand over time and lead to problems like low water pressure and flooding if not repaired by a plumber.
This issue is most common during winter when the water inside the pipe freezes, expands, and ruptures the pipe. A burst pipe can be catastrophic for your home because it can flood your home leading to pricey remodeling work, mold, and even structural damage. If you suspect you have a burst pipe, you should call our plumbing company right away for an emergency plumbing service.
Tree roots can be just as damaging to your pipes as clogs or cold weather, although the phenomenon is not as well known. Tree root invasion usually occurs when a minor leak does not receive timely plumbing repair, so the roots grow closer to the source of moisture. Unfortunately, the roots can completely invade your pipes over time, which will require a few of our plumbing services.
