If water runs through it, we do it!

 The main meter had a water line leak at the gate valve. Smart plumber Joel used a "Magpie" digital laser measurement device that measured the piping length that was needed to be replaced.  

Approximately 60 feet, in length, and 18" deep trench from the house to gate valve.



The underground main water line galvanized piping was found to have very bad corrosion creating a potentially a very high water bill for our unlucky customer. 
Fortunately, our customer was smart enough to have Smart plumber & Rooters number dialed in for those unforeseen circumstances that can turn any day into a total washout! After identifying the location  and isolation of the leak our Smart plumber Joel got straight to work excavating an 18" trench. The corroded piping was quickly removed and replaced with 1" durable copper piping and regulating valve, complete with hose bib. 

..More digging!


Vinyl mat for good, clean work ethic.


Before: Old galvanized valve piping.

Copper plumbing pipes have proven to be worthwhile expense as they are incredibly durable and are able to handle pressure of up to 1000psi! Since copper is also very flexible and durable it does not require support materials or equipment to withstand your requirements. The typical copper piping lifespan will range from 50-70 years depending on variables such as climate, water quality etc. Copper piping has a very high thermal rating and are considered fire resistant. An excellent choice for those furnace equipped households that that may be prone to burst pipes in the middle of winter. 
Furthermore, copper pipes are less likely to freeze throughout the winter season and are resistant to corrosion. Unlike, lead, iron or galvanized steel, copper has stood the test of time and are environmentally friendly, recyclable that is!
Shortly after: New Copper piping.

So don't delay call Smart Plumber and Rooters for all your plumbing needs 24/7.

A GOOD FLUSH BEATS A FULL HOUSE!

YOU NEED SEWER LINE REPAIR IF YOU SEE THESE SIGNS: Your toilet makes gargling noises. Drains aren't draining. Mold on walls. An increase in pests The toilet backs up when you flush.  Ever wondered why your bathroom smells of sewer gas odor? Without access to outside air the vacuum in the system might pull air from another plumbing fixture. For example, flushing the toilet could pull air from the bathroom sink removing the water from the P-Trap. So if you smell sewage out of the sink drain after flushing, this could be a sign of a larger ventilation issue. The P-Trap shaped piping is named after its shape. A small bend in the pipe to trap water creates a seal. This water seal prevents sewer gases and odors from leaking into your home via your drain. As water drains from the bathroom sink basin via the P-Trap, it draws air from the outside vent to equalize the pressure.  If the roof top vent is blocked by snow or some other debris then the trap seal could be sucked out by the drainin

Please do take a seat!

Here at Smartplumbers, we tackle all jobs great and small. Recently, our Smartplumber Joey was called to do a relatively routine toilet repair which was leaking at the floor base.  Joey quickly got to the task in hand and saw that the reason for the leak was that the flange was damaged.  It was old and cracked and whoever did the work prior did not remove the damaged flange.  Instead, a new flange was placed on top of the old one.  This type of shoddy work created an uneven surface for the toilet which was raised a little too high off the floor allowing leaks, mold growth, and unpleasant odor to manifest. In short, our Smartplumber completed the task with a durable carbonized iron flange and threw in a free wax seal..nice one Joey! Our customer was very pleased with Joey's professional work. We are Diamond Certified for  good reason. We pride ourselves on the expert work that we do. Please check out our reviews!   Please call 408-247-2400 24/7days a week for all your plumbing needs

Performing A Trenchless Sewerline Repair

Trenchless repairs are a less invasive option to repairing sewer line problems compared to traditional sewer repairs. With traditional sewer repair, there is much digging and excavation to remove broken and cracked pipes. The trenchless method can repair pipes underneath existing structures without disturbing them. Here, we have Smart Plumbers technician Federico and his crew performing this kind of repair on a customer's line.
