Is it Time to Consider Repiping your Home?

It can be difficult to know when the cost and inconvenience of frequent plumbing issues become sufficient to warrant considering entirely repiping your home.  Only a trained plumbing professional can advise you on the best solution for your home, but in general, these are some signs that it could be time to start thinking about repiping. 

Here are some obvious ones –

1.  Your home is more than 50 years old.  Father time is undefeated.
2.  Rust or minerals are building up in your water.
3.  Pipes are leaking in multiple places.

Depending on the size of your house, repiping may take anywhere from a couple of days to a week. Typically, it is possible to do the bulk of the work while you are out during the day, so you experience minimal disruption to your daily routine.  Call Chattanooga’s repiping professionals All Home Plumbing at (423) 598-1466 and get it done right away.

Are You Ten Years Old.

If you are reading this then you are a kid.  Your whole life is ahead of you.  However, if you are a sump pump you are in the waning stages of your life.  Ahhh, the life of that hard-working, efficient, and damage preventing device that works without notice when the water starts to rise.

Here are some signs that it is time to replace your sump pump –

1.  Simply the age of the device
2.  There is no water in the sump pit
3.  It’s making excessive noise
4.  Constantly running

Even the greatest most durable sump pump ever made can only last so long.  Make sure that yours is operating at full capacity this summer.  For sump pump replacement in the Chattanooga area call the plumbing professionals at All Home Plumbing.  They will give you a brand new decade of peace of mind.  That number is (423) 598-1466.

How Old is your Home?

Have you gradually taken the infrastructure of your home for granted as the years have gone by?  Many Chattanooga area homeowners can forget how old their homes are getting.  Just as an example, a home built in the mid-1960s is now more than 50 years old, and houses of that age can often present a host of headaches!

Galvanized piping can often be a culprit.  They are found in –

1.  Pipe bellies
2.  Sewer lines
3.  Drains
4.  Any original fixtures

The point here is that your home may need some “plumbing TLC” about now.  For that, it starts with a phone call to All Home Plumbing the Chattanooga area’s complete plumbing service professionals.  No matter what the age of your home, plumbing emergencies will rear their ugly head from time-to-time.  Always call All Home Plumbing at (423) 598-1466.

Grinding Away.

Have you ever heard of a grinder pump?  What is a grinder sump pump, anyway?  It is defined as a wastewater conveyance device.   Once the wastewater inside the tank reaches a specific level, voila…the pump turns on, grinds up the waste, and then harmlessly pumps it into the central sewer system or septic tank.

Just so you know, there are two types of grinder pumps, semi-positive displacement (SPD) and centrifugal.  The pump that is used for households around Chattanooga is usually between one and two horsepower.  The pump has a level sensor either built into the pump, called “sensing bells,” or attached externally to the pump, called “floats.”

Don’t worry, you don’t have to be a sump pump expert because WE ARE!  We are All Home Plumbing located in Chattanooga and serving the area for many years with a variety of plumbing needs.  We specialize in residential repair and installation.  For sump pumps and many other plumbing needs call us at All Home Plumbing (423) 598-1466.

Gas vs. Electric.

It’s a question that homeowners have grappled with for decades.  Do I have a gas water heater installed or an electric one?  Depending on your local utility costs gas water heaters are usually cheaper to operate.  Understand, that they cost more than electric ones, but because of the energy savings they usually make that up in about a year.

The majority of gas water heaters operate with a pilot light.  They heat water even when the electricity is off.  Because the gas one’s heat water at a ratio nearly twice as fast as electric models, if you rely on a gas water heater for bathing during an outage it will be an economical choice.  Just one of several things to consider.

The choice is yours, the professionals who will help you make that choice in the Chattanooga area are the ones at All Home Plumbing.  All Home is a plumbing company that will troubleshoot, repair, and install gas, electric, and even tankless water heaters.  Give them a call today at (423) 598-1466.

Where is that Leak Coming From?

One day you are in your Chattanooga area home all warm and dry, the next you may notice that there is a leak coming from somewhere.  Maybe water is seeping into the walls or ceiling.  That’s a pretty good indication of a problem.  However, a leak in the pipes outside your home is a little harder to detect.

Here are some signs that you have a broken water line on your property –

1.  Your water bill keeps going up.
2.  The water pressure is noticeably lower.
3.  There are soft, even slushy spots on your lawn.

Do not ignore these signs!  The next step is a real flooding situation that can devastate your property.  All Home Plumbing of Chattanooga TN is the company to call in the area at the first sign of a possible leaky water pipe.  Wherever you are in our area, please remember All Home Plumbing at (423) 598-1466.
