Repairing Damage to Pipes
Whether the damage to your pipes occurs inside or outside, our crew is able to offer expert help with a cost-effective pipe repair in Chicago. If you’re experiencing indoor pipe issues, turn off the primary source to your water supply as soon as possible and call us to discuss the problem with one of our plumbers. If outside damage is suspected, we’ll be out promptly to address the situation. Indoor and outdoor pipe damage are very different problems that require two different sets of strategy. Once we identify the issue, we’ll talk over our findings with you and make a recommendation based on your needs and budget.
Repairing and Replacing Outdated Pipes
Yesterday’s pipe materials have shortcomings that are related to the materials available at the time of their installation. Today, we have access to superior pipe materials that outlast and outperform dated pipes. While our technicians will always try to make an affordable repair whenever possible, there are times when replacing a section of your system’s pipe or an entire pipe will be in your best interest. When this is the situation, we’ll discuss options with you before we begin work.
If you’re dealing with a frozen water pipe, there are a few things you can do on your own to possibly avoid a burst pipe; however, these methods don’t always work. If possible, locate the frozen section of pipe or completely frozen pipe:
- Look for a bulge or frost on the pipe.
- Open both hot and cold faucets to relieve pressure in the system.
- Thaw near the faucet and work down to the blockage.
- Use a hair dryer or portable heat lamp to thaw the pipe while keeping the appliance away from water or use hot towels or electrical heating tape.
- Thawing enclosed pipes is more difficult and requires turning up the heat inside of the building.
If methods to thaw the pipe fail or result in a burst pipe, make a call to our team at Rodding Rooter for an emergency service call. We can offer our assistance in quickly thawing the pipe or making a pipe repair in Chicago. When uncertain of the situation at hand, shut off your water supply at the main valve and call us day or night.
