Water Heater Leaking: Plumbing Solutions and Repairs

Water Heater Leaking: Plumbing Solutions and Repairs

If you notice your water heater leaking, you need to call Roto-Rooter and have one of our technicians look at the possible causes. It could be a loose fitting on the water supply or it could be a split in your tank caused from corrosion. An experienced technician will evaluate the possible causes and advise you what your best options are for solutions. If you need a new heater, he or she will discuss all the newest varieties  available and will help you decide what would be the best for your home, taking into consideration your hot water needs and your budget. If you have a hot tub, numerous showers and tubs, and a large number of home occupants, he or she will help you find the largest capacity heater for the installation space you have available.

A Roto-Rooter technician can assist you with many different things. He or she is sure to be an experienced repair and installation technician on anything that has to do with plumbing. He or she can install or fix your pipes, your sump pump, your water heater.   He or she can unclog your drains, install a new food disposer, and fix your toilet. There is really no job too big or small for a Roto-Rooter technician.

Perhaps you have a major drain clog somewhere in your pipes. You do not have the tools necessary to unclog the drain and nothing you have tried seems to work. Your kitchen sink is backed-up and you are getting frustrated. When the Roto-Rooter technician shows up, he or she will evaluate the layout of your plumbing. He or she will provide you with an estimate of how much it will cost to clear your drain and will review each detail and explain the unclogging process and answer any questions you may have.

The first thing the technician will do is bring out a large, commercial snaking machine. This is a motorized machine that has a flexible rod with a claw-like feature on the end. He or she will put the rod into your drain and push it in until it bumps against the clog. The technician will then start the motor and the rod will begin to spin. With the rod spinning, he or she will push it further into the drain. The claw will rip through the clog and your drain will suddenly be free!

You can rely on your friend in the plumbing business when you find your water heater leaking, your drains clogged, your toilets running, or any other malfunction or break of your plumbing fixtures and appliances. We are just a quick phone call away!
