Emergency Plumbing Service That We Offer
A plumbing emergency can happen at any time, usually at the worst possible time. Then does the toilet usually block, you guessed it, first thing in the morning when you need to get the kids up for school or you must go to work. Even if you wanted to fix the problem you may not have the time or the skills to do so. You need to call Bert Norman’s Plumbing so we can send a good plumber around to you. We will respond as quickly as possible, so you do not have to stress out too much about missing a whole day’s wages.
Jacksonville, FL Drain Cleaning
With all the busy lives’ that we lead it is easy to forget that we should not pour warm grease down the sink. When it cools it will stick to the inside of your pipes, along with other things like hair, food, and coffee grinds. These will be built up over time causing a clog to form. The bigger the clog the less water will be able to flow through the pipe and your sink will take longer and longer to drain. Doing nothing will make the problem worse and lead to a complete blockage. You need to call us before that happens so we can send a professional around to clear the clog.
A good plumber will also advise you not to pour too many harsh chemicals down the drain to clear the clog. Firstly, the local sewer system is known to be problematic and the clog may not be anywhere near the drain so any chemical use will have little effect. Secondly, if you have old pipework, continued use of harsh chemicals could corrode the pipes and joints over time and could cause leaks.
Toilet Repair and Replacement in FL
Just like a sink, there are certain things that you should not flush down a toilet. Wet wipes are one, so are sanitary products, and tissue paper. The tissue paper may surprise you but unlike toilet paper, it is not designed to quickly dissolve in water. These materials can build up over time if not flushed away properly and block your toilet.
A good plumber will tell you that only human waste, toilet paper, and some gentle cleaners should go down the toilet. Certainly not any child’s toy which is probably made of plastic and is not going to dissolve anytime soon.
Another good plumbing tip is not to keep re-flushing a blocked toilet, you do not want it to overflow and generate a health hazard. If your toilet is blocked call us immediately. Who knows we may even find that lost toy for you?
If you are tired of looking at the same old bathroom, do not worry we have experts on hand to help you redesign your bathroom space and then replace all the fittings for you.
Sewer Line Repair and Replacement
All the wrong things you put down sinks and toilets could also block your sewer line. Jacksonville has a fat problem, it is the many tons of fat and grease clogging the sewers. There are giant ‘fatbergs’ many feet of greasy sludge across the sewage lines which are cleared and cleaned every couple of years.
At Bert Norman’s use, a video camera on the end of a camera first to locate the blockage, then the surrounding area will be inspected for damage. If no damage is found, then we can use a method that will change the grease into CO2 and water to guarantee the grease is fully removed from your sewer line.
If your sewer line is damaged, then we would have to consider replacing it or relining the inside of the old pipe with a special plastic. Whatever needs doing you can rest assured that Bert Norman’s plumbing will be on hand to help.
Garbage Disposal Install and Repair
As your garbage disposal unit gets older it starts to wear down or jam, as a result, it can give off a very unpleasant smell. Should it jam up, do not keep turning it on and off to remove the blockage as it can ruin the motor. Our expert plumbers are trained to fix almost any type of problem. If your unit is continually breaking down it may be more economical to replace it.
Water Heaters in FL
Is the shower producing less and less hot water? There could be many reasons for this and only an experienced plumber can find the right cause quickly. If you have an old water heater over ten years old, it may be time to replace it. A newer water heater will be more energy efficient than the older one and save you water in the long term. There are many water heaters to choose from, you need an expert to help you decide which is best for you.
