Water Heater Leaking? Roto-Rooter to the Rescue!

Water Heater Leaking? Roto-Rooter to the Rescue!

Waking up to your water heater leaking in Oklahoma City can cause you to panic a little if you don’t know the first thing about water heaters. Whenever you find water in your home where it shouldn’t be, it needs to be dealt with immediately. Thankfully, you can call Roto-Rooter anytime, day or night, seven days a week, and even on holidays. We have technicians standing by, ready to solve all your plumbing issues.

The first thing to do when you find water is to locate where it is coming from. Is it a pipe break? Do you have water heater leaking in Oklahoma City from loose fittings or is the tank worn out? If water is coming from a pipe, turn off your water main shut-off valve immediately and call Roto-Rooter. With a water heater leak, if it is spraying out, you are going to have a mess. Even after shutting off the water supply valve, the water will continue coming out until the tank is empty. Usually though, it begins with a small leak and if you catch it quickly enough, you can avert a bigger disaster.

Sometimes the water on the floor is from a sink or toilet backing up, because a big clog somewhere will not go through. If you’ve plunged the toilet and that doesn’t do the trick, you can try using a pipe snake on it. If something, such as a child’s wooden block, is lodged in the trap of the toilet, it may not budge. In this case, you’ll have to remove the toilet and try getting it out. If that doesn’t work, you may just have to replace the toilet.

Is your sink refusing to drain? Liquid drain cleaner may clear it or you can try the pipe snake. Overuse of acid-based liquid drain cleaners can actually weaken your pipes. If you have frequent clogs, you may need to figure out what people are putting down the sink. In a kitchen, a food disposer is usually the culprit behind clogged pipes. Everyone in the home who uses it needs to have instruction on its proper use. Citrus and potato peelings should be put in the garbage. When putting food in the disposer, run the water the whole time it is running, and allow it to run until it is completely clear.

Call Roto-Rooter of Oklahoma City for those clogs you can’t reach. They will get them cleared out and water running freely in no time. No other plumber in the area has as much experience as Roto-Rooter.
