Water lines Alabaster, Al

DSCF0157

Your water supply flows underground from your meter to your home. We take for granted that when we turn on the faucet a clean, steady stream of water is available. But if that changes, call Superior Plumbing Inc. to assess the situation. A noticeable drop in water pressure or discolored water could mean a leak in your water line. We will perform an inspection of your system to locate the problem and determine the extent of work needed. A minor break, perhaps caused by a root, might be a simple repair. Or, there could be faulty pipes due to age or improper installation requiring more extensive replacement.

Plumbing in a kitchen

In the kitchen, there are hot and cold water supply lines to the sink, hot water lines for the dishwasher, and cold water line for the ice maker. Leaks can develop with any of these supply lines but the most common problem in the kitchen would be a clogged drain. Grease and food debris can slow or completely clog your drain or cause problems with your disposal. Some drain cleaners can be corrosive and harm your pipes. Be safe and call Superior Plumbing where no clog is too small or minor.

Laundry Room Plumbing Repairs

Due to the water pressure, it is common for leaks to occur in the washing machine hoses. In fact, some washing machine manufacturers recommend turning off the water to the machines when not in use. If a hose breaks or blows, flooding may result. Superior Plumbing can assess your water pressure, condition of your hoses. We will advise you and take the steps needed.

Sump Pump Repair & Replacement

A sump pump is important if you live in an Alabaster area with a high water table or have a basement that is prone to flooding. A pit is designed to move water away from under and around the foundation in Ala. The electric sump pump then pumps the water from the pit to the designated area depending on the city code. Sump pumps can eventually wear out and need replacement.

A sump pump benefits your home in several ways:

  • Keeps standing water out of your basement.
  • Keeps water from weakening the foundation.
  • A dry basement will help prevent mold & mildew and termites.
  • A dry basement is cleaner and healthier.

Water in Alabaster, Al is supposed to flow freely through drains and pipes. If the water slows or stops, there is a problem. Clogs can develop in any drain in your house. There are clogs from grease and food in the kitchen sink, hair washing in the tub/shower, shaving in the bathroom lavatory, to flushing little toys by curious toddlers. But before a clog completely closes your drain, you may notice the water draining more slowing. Scum may build-up inside the pipes preventing water from draining properly.

Sewer Lines

If clogs have been cleared and your drains are still running slow, you may have a blockage in your sewer line. A sewer line clog is serious and needs a professional plumber’s attention immediately. Since the toilet drain is the largest drain the home and connected straight to the sewer, it will be your first clue that there is a problem with the sewer lines. You might also see problems with the sink and shower drains. If toilet is stopped up, backing up, possibly spilling over, that could be just a clog. But if the toilet stops up and sewer water comes up through the sink or shower drains, that is a sewer line problem. If the draining washing machine causes the toilet to overflow – sewer line problems.
