Tree Root Removal Solution For Stubborn Clogs

Leone Plumbing Professional Tree Root RemovalAre you annoyed with the persistent clogs on your toilet, bathtub, or sink drain? Despite rigorous efforts to remove clogs such as toilet papers, baby wipes, hairs, or dirt, there is still something clogging your plumbing system. There can be a real problem here! Roots may be invading your pipes which require professional tree root removal.

The Impact Of Tree Root Invasion On Your Plumbing System

Once tree roots start to get in your pipes or drains, expect that serious clogging will come next. Tree roots are considered “silent killers” that gradually destroy the drainage system without the homeowner knowing it. The presence of roots on pipes can invite other materials to clog like toilet papers, baby wipes, hair, or dirt. The worst scenario you can experience with tree root invasion is the flooding of sewage in your basement. The better way to deal with this problem is through professional tree root removal by an expert plumber.

How Do I Know If There Are Tree Roots On My Pipes?

If there are trees or shrubs nearby, always assume that they can invade your drains and pipes. If you experience the following signs, ask a professional plumber to check if roots are beginning to invade your plumbing system.
Slow Drains
Small roots can get hold of tissues, hairs, and tiny stuff that can accumulate over time which can cause clogs. This can slow the drains and you need to get this inspected and treated.
Slow Flushing Toilet And Sewage Backup
If you experience these signs with gurgling noise when you flush, it can be a sign that roots have entered the pipes.
Clogged Pipes
Root obstruction can clog the pipes which can lead to serious problems such as sewage backup and basement flooding.
Unpleasant Smell
Roots can trap unpleasant substances on your drain like food waste and even dead animals. Once these substances are trapped and start to decompose, they can produce nasty odors which can be so annoying.

Professional Tree Root Removal Solution

Tree root removal from a plumbing system requires professional handling. If not handled professionally, it can lead to other complications which will cause you more money due to major plumbing repairs. A licensed plumber is capable of doing tree root removal by using high-definition and innovative equipment such as sewage cameras. A sewage camera can help locate tree roots inside your pipes. Then, a specialized hydro jetting hose will be inserted into the pipes and send pressurized water to wash away the roots and other clogs. A snake machine with a “cutter tip” is also used to snake the line and cut away any residual tree roots. After that, pipes can be treated with trenchless repair solutions to restore and strengthen your plumbing system. Professional Tree Root Removal Solution By Leone Plumbing

Water Leak Detector: Detect Water Leak And Protect Your Property

water leak detector installation by Leone Plumbing One of the main causes of property damage is water leaks. This problem is also causing crucial wastage of water resources. If not prevented, water leaks can foster the growth of molds. This can bring serious health concerns to any individual inside the property. For this reason, having a water leak detector is a wise move when it comes to leak detection.

Why should you consider installing a water leak detector?

If you care for your property and the people around you, you need to consider installing a detector for water leaks. Undetected leaks can cause terrible damage due to accumulated water. A small leak may further intensify into inconvenient water invasion incidents if not treated. But with the aid of a leak detector, you can spot water leaks in no time which help you in:
  • Conserving water resources.
  • Preventing the accumulation of molds.
  • Protecting furniture, appliances, and other important keepsakes from water damage.
  • Avoiding structural damages to the property.

Water Leak Detector Types

Water leak detectors come in various types depending on the technology. Here are the three main types.
Flow Meters
It reads the flow velocity, pressure, and vibration inside the pipeline. Any abnormal readings indicate escaping water from a leak. An analytics platform interprets the reading that helps to locate cracks so you can perform maintenance.
Acoustic Sensors
This system uses sound to locate leaks. The noise produced by water seeping through a fracture is captured by the system’s acoustic sensors. The size of a leak is determined through sound. If it captures high-frequency sound, it is interpreted as a small leak and vice versa.
Flood Sensors
This is the most common leak detector type.  A flood sensor triggers an alarm if the gadget came in contact with water. Other flood sensors have an option to adjust the level of water detection to avoid false alarms.

Wi-Fi Water Leak and Freeze Detector

Aside from the mentioned main detector types, there are other types as well such as Wi-Fi Water Leak and Freeze Detector. We mostly use Honeywell Lyric Wi-Fi Water Leak And Freeze Detector. This gadget will alert you once it detects moisture and freezing temperatures. Its sensors can record the humidity and temperature of the area being monitored. When you are at home, you are notified by audible alerts or text messages if you are away. Leone Plumbing water leak detector installation

What to Do When You Have A Major Water Leak | Plumber Rochester NY

What to Do When You Have A Major Water Leak

I get questions from friends and customers that want to know what to do when there is a major water leak.  This is never an easy topic but I would like to shed some light on this subject so if or when this happens, you will be prepared. 1.  Turn off the water to the house The best thing to do when you find a leak is to turn the water off to the whole house.  This will ensure that where-ever the leak is at, it will not continue to receive more water to leak out. To do this you will need to locate the water meter for your home.  They are usually in the basement or utlity room.  Once you locate the meter, remove the lid.  Watch out for spiders and bugs!  Locate the main shut off and use a wrench to turn the valve (some have handle) into the closed position. 2.  Turn off the valve at the water heater If you find that your water heater is leaking then you need to cut off the water supply to the tank.  Usually there is a valve that is located above the tank and is welded into the water supply lines. Sometimes with older home these shut off valves become very fragile and can break.  If this happens use tip #1 and turn the water meter off. 3.  Get a fan and towels The best step you can take after turning the water off is to put a fan in front of the water spot.  This will help evaporate any water that you cannot soak up with a towel. 4.  Contact LEONE Plumbing & Heating This is all that I recommend to do as a homeowner because some situations are more serious than others.  Water damage is something that the Rochester NY Plumbers at Leone Plumbing and Heating takes very seriously, so follow these steps and they will help eliminate unnecessary water damage.  Then, call 585-458-5800.

Two different days of service included a severely clogged bathroom sink drain being cleared of decades of accumulated sludge. The action needed was more than a simple drain clearing with chemicals or a plunger. I was and am very satisfied with the degree of efficiency and persistence on the part of the two individuals who worked to resolve the clog. Water has continued to flow without any delays in the sink emptying. No leaks occurred under the sink after everything had to be pulled apart to clear the clog.

The second need for service involved a basement water back up resulting from days of heavy rainfall. Water was coming in from the floor drain and through the concrete floor. In addition, the old sump pump was working but severely deteriorated and near ready to fail. New larger drainpipes replaced old ones and a sump pump was acquired and put in place. Water was extracted with a wet vac and all areas were mopped up. Subsequent heavy rainfall has not been problematic.

I am grateful for the immediate response in both instances. The need for plumbing services happened just a couple weeks apart. In both instances, service was immediate, efficient, effective and courtesy was exemplary. I am grateful for all kindness and efficient service.

Great job! Thank you, sincerely.

Our water heater went out on a Friday afternoon (as expected this was a terrible time with many companies being booked up). Leone plumbing scheduled us for the next day, but we got lucky and someone ended up being available sooner. They were quick, professional and we would absolutely use this company again!
