When is it necessary to repair or replace your fixtures?

Faucets and sinks can give homeowners an array of different issues. Faucets can become corroded from mineral buildup and will need repair to stop leaks and prevent future leaks from occurring. The O-ring in the faucet can become worn over a period of time and will also need to be replaced.

Slow draining sinks and sinks that leak are often issues a homeowner will experience at some point in time. It is best to call a professional when your sink is giving you problems so that the issue can be pinpointed and quickly resolved. Sinks that drain too slowly are being affected by mineral buildup in the pipes, or it can be the result of other plumbing issues. Leaking sinks are often the result of a hole somewhere within the sink, but this is not always the case.

It is often not necessary to replace your faucet or sink unless you are constantly making repairs. Once repairs on these fixtures become frequent and costly, you will save money in the long run to invest in new fixtures.

What are easy tips to avoid leaks in the future?

One of the easiest ways to help prevent faucet leaks from occurring in the future is to clean them regularly. Cleaning a faucet regularly makes it hard for mineral buildup to occur. As long as there is minimal buildup, you will avoid corrosion and unnecessary wear on the faucet.

Faucets may leak due to the handle malfunctioning and not allowing the faucet to be completely turned off. This is the result of small washers within the faucet giving out. The handle on faucets can easily wear out if used regularly because every time the faucet is turned on or off it puts different pressure on the washers within the faucet. It is important to avoid slamming the handle up or down to turn the faucet on or off. Avoiding being rough with the handle can preserve the lifespan of the handle significantly.

How can hard water affect the quality of your faucet?

Untreated hard water is high in mineral content, such as calcium and magnesium. This can create negative effects on the quality of your home’s faucets and fixtures. Over time, the minerals in hard water can build up in your faucet and decrease the normal flow of water.

A greenish tinge on your faucet can also be the result of hard water. The greenish or whitish tint comes from the mineral content in the water. This is the type of mineral buildup that can lead to a corroded faucet.

Corrosion can occur in your faucet if the minerals and buildup are not removed in a timely manner. Corrosion slowly eats away at your faucet and can result in holes appearing throughout the unit.

Slab Leak Repair Services

What is a slab leak?

Slab leaks are slow water leaks from plumbing lines buried under the slab foundations of your home. Leaks develop as a result of shifting soils, and soils can shift more frequently once the leak has developed. Even a leak as small as a pinhead will waste 360,000 gallons of water each year, so it’s critical for any householder to detect leaks at an early stage before water wastage becomes even larger.

Do you suspect a slab leak in your home? Trust VanGo Rooter to handle your slab leak repair services. We have a team of certified, licensed, and insured plumbers that are experienced and knowledgeable in diagnosing and remedying slab leaks with accuracy and speed. We also extend a one-year warranty on all parts and labor. Don’t suffer from slab leaks and call us today.

What causes them?

The majority of homes in the region are built on concrete slabs due to unstable clay soils in the area. Although slab foundations reduce risks of structural damage to the home, soil movements can cause damage to the plumbing lines buried beneath the slabs. Once the leak has developed, wet soil leads to even further soil shifts, so the problem is easily compounded.

What are signs you have a slab leak?

Some common signs of slab leaks include:

Ignoring the problem can cause slab foundations to cave in or flooring within the home to collapse in the worst case scenarios.

How can you take care of them?

Your plumbing and slab leak professionals can help you avoid slab leaks if you book an annual plumbing inspection. Early detection of plumbing leaks is essential as it helps you avoid costly maintenance issues like foundation repairs. When water pressure tests reveal low pressure, this is often a sign of a leak somewhere around the home.

Modern slab leak detection methods make it easy to locate the source of leaks and your professional plumber can offer spot repairs to isolated slab leaks that will solve smaller problems or repiping of your plumbing lines. When the slab leaks has caused major damage to the home, it can costs tens of thousands of dollars to put foundation repairs into place and restore flooded properties, so you need to report any potential slab leak problems just as soon as you suspect this is becoming an issue.

Sump Pump Repair Plumber

A sump pump is a useful device to own in your home

Do you have flooding problems inside of your basement? Do you notice water flooding up into the basement whenever it rains, regardless of what you have done in order to protect the interior of the basement? If so, you need a sump pump and we can help you with this. This pump is able to pump water out of the surrounding soil and push it away from your home. This way, the water stays clear of your basement and you do not need to worry about potential flooding any longer, all with our provided services. Rely on VanGo Rooter for all of your Sacramento sump pump repair, replacement, and installation services. We promise to provide you with long term solutions that leave you 100% satisfied.

Why do you need a sump pump and what are the benefits?

If you have flooding or any sort of moisture backup inside of the basement after it rains, it is a good sign you need a sump pump. Complete basement protection from moisture can be incredibly expensive and cost you tens of thousands of dollars to do, and even after these procedures, it does not completely guarantee your basement is going to remain dry. That is why you need a sump pump.

The pump is able to pump the water out of the nearby soil and push it out away from the foundation of your home. With this service, you are going to see a drastic improvement in the level of dryness over what you are use to, not to mention it is much less expensive than digging up the foundations of your home in order to apply a sealant that may or may not function properly. This is exactly why we recommend a sump pump.

What are the different types?

There are several different kinds of sump pumps. A pedestal pump is a pump that is slightly elevated in the basement and placed on a stand. This is a rather common pump, although it is exposed in the basement and easy to see.

The next kind of sump pump we offer is a submersible pump. A submersible pump is one that can be completely submersed in water and still function. The pedestal pump needs to remain dry, which is partially why it is placed on a stand.

Third, the last pump we provide is a sewage pump. During strong rains, it might be difficult for the sewage from your home to be pushed through the sewer line, which means it can start to back up. Our sewage pump can push it through so you do not need to worry about this problem.

What are common sump pump problems?

A common problem is when a pedestal pump is submerged with water. When this occurs, it is not going to work properly (if at all). Another issue is if the sump pump is not powerful enough to push it the desired distance away from the home, which in turn can result in the water running back towards the house. We can help ensure you receive the very best sump pump for your needs to make sure this doesn’t happen.

Other common problems is if there is a power failure, the switch is stuck or if the discharge pipe becomes frozen, when prevents water from being pushed out.
