Copper Drainage Systems and Using a Snake to Clear the Main Line

Copper drainage systems are usually not much trouble. The copper provides many years of good service, and it is not normally a contributor to stoppages. In fact, in 20 years, I can’t recall a time when a copper DWV system caused any problems. Oh sure, they get stopped up, but all drains can. In general, copper is a good above-ground drainage material that is very dependable.

After you get the clean-out open, you can push a snake into the line. Follow these instructions:
1. Push the snake into the cleanout and push it down into the pipe as far as it will go.
2. When you reach the clog, keep turning the snake, working it back and forth to loosen the clog. When you feel resistance, you know that you’ve reached the clog.
3. Run some water through the pipe from a nearby sink.
If the water doesn’t back up from the cleanout, the clog has been cleared.
4. Replace the clean-out plug and run hot water into the pipe for several minutes.
When you flush the toilet, everything should run okay.
Still Clogged Call a Plumber
Some blockages are so far down the line that your snake can’t reach them. If the blockage is caused by tree roots or some other tough blockage, your little snake won’t make a dent. In either case, you could rent a power auger from a rental center, but we don’t recommend it. Power augers are difficult to operate and can be dangerous if the end of the steel coil gets lodged in the sewer. This type of machine has changeable cutter heads that are designed to cut roots or auger through tough clogs. If these heads get jammed and the steel coil kinks or breaks, you can get seriously hurt. You’ve done the hard part by removing the clean-out plug and identifying the problem, but it’s time for you to call for help.

PLUMBING VALVE REPAIR

A valve controls the flow of water or gas in pipes. Your home has a valve on the incoming water line so you can stop the flow of water into your home. Some valves have a round knob on top which must be turned to open or close the valve and other valves have a single lever that is pushed or pulled to open or close the valve. Valves are used for all types of plumbing pipe and are available with threaded ends (for use with galvanized steel pipe) or smooth ends (for use with soldered copper joints). You can also find a valve with plastic bodies, for use with adhesive in a plastic pipe application.
Gate valve: Gate valves allow the full flow of water through the valve. This valve is the best kind to use in the main shutoff valve and in pipes supplying cold water to the water heater and other devices where water flow is important. Gate valves don’t have rubber compression gaskets; instead, they rely on the close fit of the parts to stop the water. Turning the handle counterclockwise raises the wedge-shaped gate, allowing the water to flow.
Ball valve: Ball valves can provide a full flow of water. They are opened and closed by a lever. Inside the valve is a ball with a hole through it. When the hole in the ball is aligned parallel with the pipe, water flows through the valve. When the ball is turned with the hole across the pipe, the water is blocked. The lever is aligned with the hole in the ball. To close a ball valve, push the lever perpendicular to the pipe; to open it, push the lever parallel with the pipe.
Globe valve: Globe valves, which are less expensive than gate valves, are a good choice for general water control where full flow is not necessary. Globe valves have a rubber compression washer that is pushed against a seat to squeeze the water flow.
Stop valve: Stop valves are a variation of globe valves. They are designed to control water running to sinks and toilets. Stop valves come in two main varieties: angle and straight stops. Angle stops are designed to control the water flow and change the direction of the flow 90 degrees. Angle stops are mounted on the end of pipes under sinks and toilets when the supply pipes come out of the wall. Straight stops are designed to be mounted on pipes that come out of the floor.
Be sure you choose a valve with the right kind of outlet. The valve is designed to attach to the pipe coming out of the wall or floor and to the riser tube going to the fixture. If, for example, you want a stop valve to attach to an X-inch galvanized pipe and to an inch riser tube, purchase a valve with an X-inch female threaded end and an X-inch outlet to accept the tubing.
Hose bib: A hose bib looks a lot like a miniature faucet. It has a male-threaded end that is screwed into a coupling threaded to the end of a pipe. Hose bibs are commonly used to control water running to washing machines.
Sillcock valves: Sillcock valves are used outside the house, on the faucets that you most likely use with a garden hose (called a bib faucet). For houses located in cold winter climates, a freeze-proof version is available.

Garbage Disposers

Another common method for freeing jammed impellers in disposers involves the use of a broom handle or similar tool. The broom handle is placed into the mouth of the disposer and lodged against one of the impeller blades. Then pressure is exerted on the blade as the handle is pried back to free the jam. The disposer should be turned off for all of these procedures, except for the use of a reversing switch.
If you face a situation where garbage disposal will not work. You turn on the switch and nothing happens. What would you do?
The first logical step to take is pushing the reset button that is located on the bottom of the disposer. Turn the disposer off and depress the reset button. Then turn the switch on and see if the disposer works. If it runs, test it several times to make sure it does not continue to trip the safety control.
What will you do if the disposer still fails to operate after using the reset button? Check to see if the impellers are jammed. For obvious reasons, never put your fingers or hands into the mouth of the disposer. Try turning the flywheel with a wrench or some long tool, like a broom handle. After rotating the flywheel, turn the disposer back on and see if it works.
If it is still dead, check the electrical panel to see if a fuse has blown or a circuit breaker has tripped. You’d be surprised how often this is the cause of the problem. Many homeowners, and commercial customers for that matter, never think to check their electrical panels before calling for help.
Garbage disposers do sometimes become smelly beyond normal comfort zones. When this happens, there is a simple way to beat the smells. Fill the disposer about two-thirds full with ice cubes and cut it on. Run cold water into the disposer to flush it out. After the ice cubes have been ground up, slice a lemon in half and put it in the disposer. Cut the disposer on and allow it to devour the lemon. This home remedy works on almost any type of tough odor coming from disposers.

Using a toilet plunger
A toilet plunger (a ball or cup-type plunger) is designed specifically for unclogging toilets. The rounded lower surface nests tightly in the bowl, giving the plunger great suction action to dislodge the blockage. With the plunger in place, push down gently, and then pull up quickly to create suction that pulls the blockage back a bit and dislodges it.
Using a toilet plunger (as opposed to a sink-type plunger) keeps you from splashing as much water around because the ball of the plunger covers the entire hole. If all you have on-hand is a small, sink-type plunger, try using it — it can’t hurt, and it just may work.

Choosing a New Toilet
Today’s toilets are better looking and more efficient than ones of years past, because they use a mere 1.6 gallons of water per flush, compared to 3 to 5 gallons. You can find two basic styles of toilets: a one-piece unit with a combined bowl and tank, and a two-piece unit with a separate water tank and bowl. Two-piece units are more used and cost less than one-piece toilets.
The most used flush assembly is a gravity-fed flush toilet that uses the force of gravity and a siphoning, pull-through action to discharge the toilet bowl. Another toilet kind, a pressure-assisted toilet, relies on either water pumps or compressed air to boost the flushing toilet power. Our choice for a budding do-it-yourself plumber is the two-piece gravity-assisted toilet.
Most toilets are designed with a standard 12-inch rough-in dimension, which means that it’s located 12 inches from the wall. You can also find toilets with 10-inch or 14-inch rough-in dimensions.
If you’re replacing a toilet with a wall-hung tank, it will have a rough-in dimension of 14 inches. If this is a case, you can install a toilet designed for a 12-inch rough-in, but it’ll end up a couple inches from the back wall. Place a short piece of 2x lumber on the wall behind the tank to give support to the tank.
If your old toilet has a 10-inch rough-in dimension, you can purchase a new toilet with this dimension — you may have to special order it, however.
Before you begin this project, make arrangements for using another toilet. If your household has only one toilet, this may be the most important part of the job! Find a friendly neighbor (who is indebted to you) and prevail on his hospitality. Of course, if you have another toilet in the house, you’re in good shape.
You’ll probably find the bathroom easier to work in if you remove any extra doodads or decorations. Remove towels, baskets — whatever’s in the room — so that the toilet is free and clear to work on.

Plumbing

If you are like most homeowners, the maze of hot and cold plumbing supply pipes and plumbing waste pipes in your basement resembles nothing more meaningful than a plate of spaghetti. The text below will show you that, in fact, your house contains three separate plumbing systems of pipes, all making perfect sense. Understanding their purpose and how each one works will enable you to decide which plumbing projects are in the realm of a homeowner, and which ones require a plumber. If you’re planning to build a new home or do major plumbing remodeling, this text will also help you to visualize the plumbing requirements, and how they’ll fit into your space. A visit to the plumbing aisle of your local home center will show you that do-it-yourself plumbing repair has never been easier. There you will find plumbing kits, including illustrated instructions, for just about every common plumbing repair project. Plumbing is not dangerous, unless you’re dealing with gas pipes. In fact, call a licensed plumbing professional if your repair or installation involves any change to existing gas plumbing piping. But plumbing mistakes can be damaging to the finishes and contents of your home, just by getting them wet. The force and weight of water are also something to be reckoned with if many gallons flow where they should not. Before starting a plumbing project involving the plumbing supply system, locate the shut-off valve for the plumbing fixture you’re working on. If you can’t find one, shut off the main valve is where the plumbing supply enters the house.

How Plumbing Works

A tile plumbing supply system is the network of pipes that delivers hot and cold potable water under pressure throughout your house plumbing.
1. Water enters underground from the street through a 3/4″ or 1″ metal pipe. In houses built prior to 1950, the metal is usually plumbing galvanized steel after 1950, plumbing copper. In the case of a private water supply, the plumbing pipe is usually polyethylene.
2. If you pay for water and sewage, your home’s usage is measured and recorded as tile water passes through a water meter. If you find no meter inside the house, one is probably located in a pit between the house and the street. You can monitor your consumption, measured in cubic feet, by lifting the cap and reading the meter.
3. Next to the water meter (before, after, or both), you will find a valve, which allows shutting off the water supply, both cold and hot, to the entire house. If you have never noted this plumbing valve, do so now. When a plumbing pipe or fixture springs a leak, you don’t want to waste time searching for it.
4. Plumbing supply pipes—both cold and hot—that serve many plumbing fixtures are called “trunk lines,” and are usually 3/4″ in diameter. Pipes serving hose and other plumbing fixtures with high demands may be 3/4″ as well.
5. Plumbing pipes serving only one or two fixtures are called “branch lines.” Because they carry less water, they are often reduced in size to 1/2″ and, in the case of toilets, 3/8″. Exceptions are pipes serving both a shower and another fixture.
6. Every plumbing fixture should have shutoff valves on both hot and cold incoming supplies. This is so that repairing the single plumbing fixture doesn’t require shutting off the entire house supply at the meter valve.

No Hot Water

When no hot water is being produced by an electric water heater, there are only a few things that need to be checked. The first thing to do is to check the electrical panel to see that the fuse or circuit breaker for the water heater is not blown or tripped. For water heaters that have their own disconnect boxes, check the disconnect lever to see that it is turned on.
Assuming the water heater is receiving adequate electrical power; check the thermostats to see that they are set at a reasonable heat setting. It is highly unlikely that anyone would turn them way down, but it is possible.
The most likely cause of this problem is a bad heating element, but a bad thermostat could also be at fault. Check the continuity and voltage of these devices with a meter to determine if they should be replaced.

Limited Hot Water

When a water heater is producing only a limited amount of hot water, the problem is probably with the lower heating element. These elements frequently become encrusted with mineral deposits that, in time, reduce the effectiveness of the element. Check the element with your meter and replace it if necessary.
When a thermostat is set too low, a water heater will not produce adequate hot water. Check the settings on the thermostats, and check the thermostats with your meter.
Water that is too hot
Sometimes complaints come in that the hot water being produced is too hot. This is normally a simple problem to solve. Turning the settings down on the heater’s thermostat will normally correct the situation. However, it is possible that the thermostat is defective. If it is, replace it.

Complaints of Noise

Complaints of noise are sometimes made pertaining to water heaters. If a water heater is installed near habitable space, it is not uncommon for people to notice a rumbling in the heater. This often frightens into calling a plumber. Do you know what causes the noise made in the water heater? The noise is directly related to sediment that has accumulated in the water heater. Water becomes trapped between layers and when the water temperature reaches a certain point, the water explodes out of the layers. The mini-explosions can sound like a cracking or rumbling noise, and they should not be ignored. The explosions can be controlled by removing sediment from the water heater.
Sediment can be reduced in water heaters by opening the drain periodically. Ideally, water heaters should be drained monthly, but few are. If the buildup of sediment is extreme, a cleaning agent can be put into the water heater. The cleaning compound will reduce the scale buildup and the noise.
If you drain water from the heater and don’t see any sediment, check the relief valve. It is possible the noise is coming from a steam buildup. Then this is the case, you might need to replace the relief valve.

Continuous wastes leaks
Continuous wastes and slip nuts account for many of the leaks under a kitchen sink. When people store objects under a sink, they often hit and disturb the tubular drainage pipe and slip nuts. If a slip-nut washer is old and brittle, it doesn’t take much stress to make it leak.
Many plumbers make a big mistake when they are looking for leaks in the drainage system of a kitchen sink. I’ve seen numerous good plumbers make the same mistake when they were testing out new installations and when they were looking for leaks in existing plumbing. They frequently fail to fill the sink to capacity before looking for the leaks.
Slip-nut leaks don’t always occur every time water is drained past them. For example, if a kitchen faucet is turned on and the water runs directly from the faucet down the drain, there may not be enough pressure on the faulty slip-nut washer to create a drip. However, if the sink bowl is filled and all of the water is released at one time, the volume and pressure of the water can cause a significant leak at the weak joint.
Homeowners often fill their sinks to the capacity to wash dishes. When they release the water, leaks can occur that a plumber will never find without filling the sink with water. This can cause a plumber to tighten the slip nuts and leave the job, satisfied that the leak is fixed. But the next time the homeowner fills the sink to do dishes, the leak will reappear. This creates a callback for the plumber, aggravation for the homeowner, and lost money for the plumbing company.
When you are looking for leaks in the continuous waste of a sink, always fill the sink to capacity and release all of the water at one time. If you are working on a double-bowl sink, fill both bowls and release them simultaneously.

Leaking Traps
Finding a leak in a trap should be done with the same procedure that is used on continuous wastes. Fill the sink to capacity and release all of the water at once.

Drainage leaking problems
Kitchen sinks are prime targets for drainage problems. This is especially true when the sinks drain into older plumbing pipes, such as galvanized steel. Many foreign objects find their way into the drainage systems beneath kitchen sinks. Grease, however, is one of the largest contributors to drainage problems in the kitchen.
As a service plumber, I have removed rings, forks, knives, spoons, shampoo-bottle tops, bracelets, earrings, and even aerators from kitchen drains. With the crossbar strainers in modern sink drains, not nearly as many large objects fall into the drainage system as did in earlier years.
Most drainage problems in sinks are easy to troubleshoot. The trap is removed and inspected. If it is clear, the problem is normally in the trap arm or drain, and a snake will generally clear the obstruction. We are going to get into much more detail on clogged drains and vents. For now, it is enough to say that by removing the trap, and possibly sections of the tubular waste, you can eliminate the possibility of blockages in a kitchen sink.

When you think of remodeling your bathroom, you may be in a hurry to get your new fixtures and materials installed so you can begin enjoying your new bath. But wait… It’s good to have your goal in mind so you know where you want to go, but you want to get there with the fewest complications and get there safely.

Wiring Considerations

Let’s think about wiring. If your home is reasonably new or was remodeled in recent years, this may not be a problem. But, if however, yours is an older home that hasn’t seen much done to it in recent years, you may want to consider the wiring in your bathroom before you proceed. Is the wiring adequate? How is the lighting now? Do you have enough outlets?

Many bathrooms, when they were built, were only equipped with canned spotlights. In a number of situations, there were no provisions made for vanity lighting. Lighting on both sides above the vanity is necessary for grooming needs, especially if there are women in the household. Spots do not adequately light a bathroom for applying cosmetics, because they create shadowing.

If you are putting in a soaking tub or a bathtub with a whirlpool, you may want subdued lighting in the tub area so you can relax and bathe in an atmosphere of peace and serenity after a hard day at the job.

You also want to be sure there are plenty of outlets, and that they are located conveniently depending on their use.

Don’t forget to allow for bathroom ventilation. You will need to hook in somewhere so that you have proper ventilation. Proper ventilation is even more important in today’s bathrooms with showerheads that provide massive volumes of hot water, steam showers, and many of the new fixtures available.

Protecting your home against the damage from steam will save your walls and floors, and also prevent against mold, some of which is not only annoying but a health hazard.

Plumbing and Hot Water Supply

Then there are plumbing considerations. Hopefully, your plumbing is basically good. But even if this is true, you may need to make some changes depending on what you include in your bathroom remodeling project. This is a good time to evaluate the condition and capacity of your plumbing.

Some of the newer showerheads will require piping of a certain size. Be sure when you are making selections that you are aware of any plumbing modifications that need to be made so you don’t run into any snags.

Your water heater is something else to think about, depending on what you add to your bathroom, in the way of amenities. If you are installing a deep soaking tub, a whirlpool, or some of the high volume showerheads, you want to be sure your hot water supply will be adequate so you can enjoy the use of these special amenities. Check your hot water tank capacity and compare it to the needs of these new fixtures before you proceed.

As I said, wiring and plumbing are unpopular aspects to a bathroom remodeling project, but addressing them when you remodel may save you a lot of grief later on.

The Best Sewer Repair Specialist

Broken, Offset, Collapsed, or Cracked pipes – damaged caused by foundation settling, shifting soil, frozen ground conditions, etc.
Corrosion – sewer pipe material has deteriorated and/or broken leading to collapse and flow restrictions
Root Infestation – the clogging of a sewer pipe due to tree or shrub roots breaking, collapsing, and growing within the pipe
Blockage – buildup of grease or foreign object(s) that prohibit or restrict flow within sewer pipes and prevent proper cleaning of the line
Bellied Pipe – section of sewer pipe that has sunk because of shifting soils or improper compaction underneath the pipe creating a valley that collects debris, paper, and waste
