Effective Plumbing Fixes for Fort Worth Homeowners This Second Week of November
Going out to spend the weekend is great, but sometimes the malls and parks get a little boring when you visit them again and again. So why not try out something new for a change?
With the Epic Fort Worth Scavenger Hunt, your weekend is sure to be a blast! It’s the perfect group activity for adults who want to try out something new. Looking for clues and items can be both mentally and physically stimulating. Not only does it help excite your sugar rush, but it also helps you become active with your friends or family.

And speaking of scavenger hunting, we’ve discovered a lot of causes of stoppages, locations of leaks, and even more pipe related problems this week. It’s not as fun as winning a scavenger hunt, but fixing the issue and making our clients happy is quite an achievement for our team
Replacing a Homeowner’s Water Heater in the Fort Worth Area
Taking a hot shower is not just relaxing; it takes away the chills especially now that winter is fast approaching. Imagine running out of hot water in the middle of a much-needed shower. What a nightmare! Not only is it extremely uncomfortable, but sudden changes in temperature during baths can cause a spike in blood pressure which can lead to stroke or heart disease and the like. And it can affect our skin and other soft tissues, too. Sudden shifting from hot to cold can dry up our epidermal layer as well as our eyes and the insides of our noses, which can induce a cold or asthma attacks.
To avoid instances like these, you can rely on our plumbing services crew to fix your hot water problems. It usually takes our crew a day or two to fix your water heater so you can take hot showers again.
For this project, our client’s old water heater had finally given up and retired from service. It was neatly located in their garage so we were able to easily replace it with a new one. We installed a brand new 50-gallon gas water heater manufactured by Rheem. Not only was it new but it would last longer than the old model they used.
We also replaced a flexible gas line connected to the 50-gallon gas water heater. All of this took less than 4 hours with a 2-man team. Our client was pleased to have their hot water back within the day.
Fixing hot water problems shouldn’t take long especially when you need water 24/7. It’s uncomfortable to bathe in cold water during certain seasons and it’s tedious to manually boil hot water by the stovetop every time you need to take a shower. For heater related issues, you can count on us to fix it within a day or two!
Successful Flange Replacement and Sewer Reroute in Benbrook
The toilet is our trusty steed during ‘special occasions”. But what if this ‘steed’ gets in trouble?
A toilet that is stationed firmly on the ground does not mean that it is not prone to breaking. In fact, toilet seats can get wobbly, leaky or clogged, all of which is enough to give you a headache. Leave these unfixed, and you’re in for even more trouble – being prone to fall damage, having more broken bathroom fixtures, your water bill skyrocketing, and of course, additional expenses. Why wait for disaster to happen if you can just simply have it repaired as soon as possible?
This scenario is what our client at Benbrook, Texas had. To take care of their wobbly toilet, it took a single plumber and two hours of repairs. With a simple flange and wax ring replacement then a restructuring of the flex line, the toilet seat is now back to its full functionality.
Our client is happy that their bathroom’s throne is now good to go, but we are not done yet…
Whenever we accept a job with a client, it is not always a one-and-done situation. Sometimes, there are more things to take care off, especially when we discover hidden issues. That flange installation is just one of the two things our clients wanted us to fix. For part two of this project, we had to re-route their sewer.
Restructuring the flow of sewer waste from your home to the sewer system down below is sometimes a necessity. There are some cases that water flowing out needs to be set on a different route. The current setup may not efficient in laying down waste, which can affect all connected fixtures at home and render them useless. It’s better to make sure that everything in your sewer lines is optimal.
For this client, we did a sewer rerouting for their home where we changed the pipe connections for the air conditioner, washing machine and kitchen drains. We also restructured their flow to the exterior line, and then reconnected them to the main sewer line. Our team managed to perform multiple procedures just to get the job done–tunnelling, brick access, concrete access, and trenching. We even had to perform a slab penetration to access our client’s kitchen and laundry lines. What a complex job! With a plumber and a helper, this project took three whole days to get the new system working.
Rerouting a sewer is no easy task. One mistake can result in further issues for all connected home fixtures, which is why a professional should handle jobs like this. And we are definitely the experts for the job, as we carefully planned the repairs and executed them perfectly!
Repairing Broken PVCs in a Sewer System for an Irving Homeowner
Sometimes strange things happen, right under your nose–weird sounds coming out of nowhere, moist floors, an odd smell you just can’t pinpoint. These could be symptoms of a sewer leak, which means you may need to get things checked or else bad things will happen.
Our client in Irving, Texas had no idea her sewer system was completely separated and draining under the foundation of her home. After an inspection by our team, we discovered that two PVC pipes had separated due to a foundation lift. With several tunnel repairs and slab penetrations to expose all broken PVC pipes, it took our team one whole week to repair not just the misconnection, but all leaks across the client’s sewer system as well.
Problems such as these are pretty common, and they need to be addressed carefully and quickly. Our successful projects are a testament to how efficient repairs should be done as long as the plumbing is concerned!
