The Plumbers St Peters MO Services Locals Can Depend On!

The St Peters Plumbing Services Experts

Plumbing problems are common household issues that need to be dealt with immediately before they cause any significant damage.  

Our plumbers St Peters MO team is at your service if you seek repairs. Here is a list of plumbing repairs our experts can perform: 

Leak Repairs

The disturbance isn’t the only reason to fix a leak. Leaving a leak unattended can destroy your walls, floors, and carpets and may even leave permanent damage to your home.  Types of leak repairs include: 

Water Heater Repairs

Suppose you spent your whole day out in the cold and are now looking forward to a relaxing hot shower. The only problem is, there isn’t any hot water. Your water heaters prepare hot water for you to use, and since you use hot water for various activities, water heater repairs are mandatory. Here are three types of repairs your water heater may need:

Fixing Dip Tubes

If you’re suddenly not getting enough hot water, a broken dip tube may be why. In a water heater, these tubes carry water from the cold water supply to the tank to warm it in a water heater. If one dip tube breaks off, the cold water mixes with the hot water lowering your hot water supply. Repairing these tubes will put things back to normal.

Heating Element Replacement

You can’t have warm water without a functioning heating element. Unfortunately, due to sediment buildup, heating elements work harder to heat the water, causing them to burn out eventually. Our experts can fix or replace the heater so you can continue using it like before.

Replacing a Faulty Burner

Gas-powered water heaters make use of burners. A faulty burner may be the reason for your low hot water supply. These burners may not function properly due to the buildup of rust and dust. Your plumber can look at your water heater, diagnose the problem, and provide an effective solution.

Garbage Disposal Repairs

Plumbing doesn’t mean repairing and replacing clogged pipes and drains. We also deal with garbage disposal repairs. If you’re experiencing any of these problems, we advise you to reach out to us.

Ensure the unit is plugged in and everything is as it should be before turning it on. If nothing works, there may be something wrong. A plumber can help diagnose and fix the problem. 

You may notice your machine making a humming sound while operating it. This may be due to a jam in the blades. We recommend turning the machine off and calling us for help. Don’t attempt to reach into the blades, as you can hurt yourself. 

To prevent a jam, avoid food going down the drain, particularly food that may cause blockages. These include: 

  • Fats, oil, and grease 
  • Non-food objects  
  • Bones 
  • Eggshells 
  • Starchy vegetables 
  • Fruit pits 

Your unit should rapidly grind the food and drain it in seconds. If you notice things are going slow, your blades may have become dull, or there may be a blockage somewhere in the pipes. Our experts can help fix both these issues. 

Odor coming from the garbage disposal may sound like a normal thing (after all, this is where the garbage goes), but it may be a sign for you to call your plumber. 

Foul odors can indicate clog somewhere down the drain. In addition, it may also mean your unit requires cleaning, which is a job for experts. 

If you hear sounds coming from your garbage disposal that doesn’t sound normal, they probably aren’t. Grinding sounds may mean something is stuck or something isn’t working correctly. 

Leak Repairs

The St Peters Plumbers Experts You Can Trust!

A burst pipe is a plumbing emergency that requires a plumbing expert ASAP. We strictly recommend not to repair the pipe yourself. Call plumbers St Peters MO for any plumbing concerns. Here are a few steps you should immediately take to minimize damage:

Drainage Repairs

Several drainage problems require repairs.

Clogs

Blockages are a common occurrence and one of the simpler repairs that our plumbers perform. Accumulation of hair and greasy items can create clogs that experts can easily remove.

Roots in Drain Pipes

If your home is built near mature trees, chances are your drainage system is giving you problems due to their roots. Tree roots can push against the pipes creating cracks. These roots can also penetrate these lines causing blockages. Root damage is a serious issue which may require extensive repairs depending on the extent of the harm to the pipes.
