Indoor plumbing isn’t new. In fact, archeologists have found evidence of indoor plumbing in Egyptian pyramids as far back as 2500 BC! Plus, the Egyptians liked to use copper pipe, which is still the top material for plumbing pipes today. This is good evidence that there were ancient Egyptian plumbers, although there’s no evidence to suggest they were better looking than we are.
Your plumbing may or may not be as old as dirt, but most homeowners have the need for a professional plumber more than once during their tenure in their home. Your best bet for Gainesville plumbers is to call Roto-Rooter. We’ve got the experience and skills to deal with issues in old or new plumbing systems.
Most people take their plumbing for granted until something inconvenient happens. If the toilets flush, the sinks drain, and the water pressure in the shower is decent, we don’t give it another thought. However, Murphy’s Law states that your toilets will clog, your sinks will stop draining, and your water pressure reduces to a slim trickle when it’s least convenient – often when you have guests over for the holidays. As annoying as those problems are, you can also be faced with various flooding situations caused by a multitude of possibilities from a burst pipe to an invisible leak into the wall or floor. Too many people have come home from vacation to find a foot of water sloshing around in the basement.
Fortunately, when plumbing emergencies happen, you’ve got our phone number – one thing those ancient Egyptian plumbers couldn’t offer their customers – and we’re ready to leap to your rescue. Whether it’s a plumbing emergency or routine maintenance, highly trained technicians are standing by.
To prevent costly damage to your home, it’s best to prevent emergencies before they happen. You can do this through regularly maintaining your plumbing system and components. Your house’s plumbing system is divided into two sub-systems: one for bringing fresh water into your home and one for taking waste water away. Most people own a hot water heater that provides hot water for cooking or bathing. Toilets, sinks, and showers all contain parts that work together to flush, drain, or jet water. When parts corrode or break, leaks happen. Water heaters can stop heating water. Pipes get clogged. Often, you’ll see symptoms of these problems show up in a smaller way, such as a leaky faucet or a constantly running toilet. By taking care of it when it’s small, you’ll save money in the long run. Small problems can quickly cascade into big ones.
