How a 24-Hour Plumber Can Help You

Monday, December 17th, 2018

Let’s face it, emergencies don’t always occur during typical office hours. Imagine if the Emergency Room was only open Monday through Friday from 9:00-5:00? A lot of people would be in some serious trouble! Well, the same applies to your plumbing system. When an emergency strikes, you want to be sure that there is a technician ready to help you, no matter the hour.

There is a wide range of plumbing issues that constitute emergencies, so don’t be afraid to pick up your phone! Waiting until the morning could spell significant damage to your home and property. Trust us, plumbing emergencies can be quite messy, so you’ll want the problem resolved as soon as possible.

Types of Plumbing Emergencies

Overflowing Toilet

As you can imagine, an overflowing toilet is something that causes many homeowners to panic—and for good reason! Not only will you no longer have use of the toilet, but there is potential for water damage and unhygienic situations. If you find yourself in this predicament, call an emergency plumber right away.

Burst Pipe

This is something that happens more often in the winter. When a pipe freezes, there is a rise in pressure along the pipe due to the ice. This can cause the pipe to burst. When a pipe bursts, water escapes into your home. This heavy flow of water can cause some serious damage to your property and furnishings. If you notice a pipe has burst, shut off the main water line and contact an emergency plumber as quickly as you can.

Sewer Line Blockage

If you’ve noticed that multiple drains around your home have become clogged or slow,  you most likely have a major problem deep within your drainage system. Your main sewer line is responsible for removing all of the wastewater from your home. If you notice the aforementioned tell-tale signs, contact a plumber before the situation worsens. A blocked sewer line can lead to sewage backing up into your home, which is definitely an emergency! Only a trained plumber will be able to tell if the problem lies within your sewer line. Their experience allows them to pinpoint the exact source of the problem and repair it before it becomes any worse.

Main Water Line Leak

There are a few big signs that indicate that your main water line is in jeopardy. If you notice water pooling in your lawn or in your basement, a sudden growth of mold, or no water coming from the taps, call a professional right away. A main line water leak will lead to very serious damage if left unattended.

A 24-hour plumber can help you in even the most dire of situations. If you need a 24-Hour plumber in Orlando, FL, you can count on Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc.! Our plumbers are equipped and prepared to handle most repairs on the spot, so we can get your system up and running again in no time! You can call us anytime for emergency plumbing repairs.

Ask a Plumber: Reasons for Shower Backup

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

It is difficult for most homeowners to imagine living without the incredible convenience of running water in their homes. Thankfully, most of us will never have to experience such issues. Even so, it is very likely that you will experience some sort of problems with the plumbing system in your home eventually. When that time comes, it is important to contact a professional plumber in Orlando, FL immediately. The longer you wait to do so, the greater the risk for serious damage to your plumbing system. Even seemingly minor problems, such as a backed up shower drain, may result in real trouble if given the time. Contact Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. today to learn more.

 Shower Backup

There are a number of different reasons why your shower may back up. The good news is that most of them can be easily avoided with just a little bit of extra care. One of the most important things that you can do to keep your bathtub draining properly is to simply use drain covers when showering. It is inevitable that some hair is going to wind up being shed in the shower, and hair buildup in shower drains may be the most common cause of shower backups. If you shave in the shower then your drains are at an even greater risk. A good drain cover will help to keep that hair out of the drain as the water passes through.

Even when being careful to use drain covers and clean any hair out of the shower when you’re done, you will probably still have to deal with a shower backup at some point. Dirt, grime and even soap and shampoo residue can build up over time. Regular drain cleaning is a great way to ensure that your drains are clear and that they will function properly. A slow moving drain is certainly inconvenient, but many homeowners fail to realize that such issues can lead to an imbalance of pressure, creating a risk for the condition of your pipes.

To learn more about shower backups and how to avoid them, speak with an Orlando, FL plumber you can count on at Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. Our team is happy to answer any questions that you may have. Contact us any time to discuss all of your plumbing service options and needs.

Plumber FAQ: How Does Video Pipe Inspection Work?

Monday, April 22nd, 2013

Ensuring that your drain pipes and sewer lines are in good working condition is important, because accumulations and blockages can cause big problems over time. The technological developments of the last 20 years have allowed plumbers to take advantage of video pipe inspection methods that have offered unprecedented vision into the interior condition of our wastewater disposal systems. This service is available to customers who want to know whether they might benefit from drain cleaning or whether they’re in need of drain cleaning repair. In this post, we’d like to explain how video pipe inspect works so that you can stay informed. For more information, or to schedule an Orlando, FL plumber, call the video pipe inspection experts at Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. (MPI) today!

There are several things the video pipe inspection technician looks for: damage pipes or joints, blockages, cracks and holes, and sections that need replacement. Video pipe inspection relies on a small camera and light installed at the end-tip of a video cable. The models range in length and diameter, but they are small enough to enter even small drainpipes. The cable is typically inserted at what’s known as a “clean out,” an access point used for drain service. As this camera travels through your drainpipe, it illuminates the entire surface and uses a camera with a swivel head to allow for comprehensive scanning. The color image is communicated to the inspector through the video cable and hooked up to a monitor. The apparatus is also equipped with a recorder so that the entire inspection can be shown to the homeowner. This allows you to see exactly what the technician sees.

We hope this gives you some idea about how video pipe inspection works. The next step is what you decide to do with your this data. Talk to your local plumber about drain cleaning and repair, and about whether your drainpipes are at risk of damage.

Plumber Tip: Signs You Need to Replace Your Water Heater

Monday, February 18th, 2013

Are you wondering if it is time to replace your water heater? Call the Orlando plumbers at Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. (MPI). We install and replace a wide selection of water heater models, including tank and tankless systems. Call us if you would like to set up a consultation. Here are some warning signs that your water heater should be replaced.

Is your water heater not heating up the water in your home as quickly as it used to? While this may be a sign of a tune-up or repair service, it may be more cost-effective to replace it if it is an older water heater. Can you tell that there has been an increase in recovery time? If your hot water demands have not changed, you may need a water heater repair or replacement depending on the cause of the issue. If there’s no hot water in your home, give it some time to heat up again, but if it still doesn’t provide any hot water, call a plumber. If you do decide that you need a new one, we can make recommendations for the right model for your hot water needs.

Another factor to consider is age and efficiency. If your water heater is older than 10 years old, then it may be time for an upgrade to a more efficient model. Other factors are constant or major leaks, and if the tank on your water heater has a lot of damage from corrosion, the tank will need to be replaced most likely. While there is the initial investment to consider, replacing older water heaters with a more energy-efficient model can save you money in the long run on energy savings. You may also want to consider upgrading to a tankless water heater if you have a traditional tank model.

Call the Orlando plumbers at Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. (MPI) if you would like to set up a consultation.
