PEDAL SINK INSTALLATION IN THE FORT WORTH AREA
A pedestal sink is about as pure and simple as it gets, emphasizing only two core elements: the water and the basin. This simplicity is what makes pedestal sinks successful as an essential component of any type of bathroom. The pedestal sink is usually only composed of two separate fixtures that are attached during installation. The top part is the lavatory where the faucet is attached and water collects in the basin. The lower portion is the vertical pedestal itself that partially carries the weight of the lavatory, which also gives the sink its name.
This particular sink we installed is located in the guest bathroom that our customer was remodeling. The customer had a hard time finding a plumber that could install a pedestal sink. You might be wondering why since they look so simple! Actually, they can be tricky to install and often require the services of a professional (us!).
Measurements have to be accurate and you always have to double-check the holes that you have drilled where the bolts are going in. For instance, we had to make an access point in the wall and create a backing to support the top of the sink. Once that was supported, we connected the bottom. Also, pedestals are quite heavy and often require two people to put together. However, in this project only needed one of our expert plumbers.
INSTALLING A DUAL CLEANOUT TO DETECT SEWER LEAKS IN TEXAS
All the drains in your home are connected to the main sewer line. A leak in this busy conduit can lead to a handful of problems such as unpleasant odors that come out of unexpected places, cracks in the foundation of your home caused by prolonged exposure to leakage, rats suddenly taking a residence the nooks and crannies of your house, and sometimes you may even notice a huge spike in your water bill.
In this project, our client had a sewer leak. We excavated the area where the piping exits the home. Then we cut out some old pipes and installed the double cleanouts so we can perform the sewer leak isolation. This allows us to locate every leak in the system rather than fix one leak at a time.
When excavating, we have to be careful not to damage any surrounding structures. Unfortunately, the cleanouts were located right beside the concrete sidewalk. We had to remove a few sections of concrete and removed a small tree to access the cleanouts. These are some of the challenges we face on a daily basis and we make sure that we are minimally invasive on the surrounding structures and features while focusing on the project.
Other companies do not offer this kind of quality service. Here at Service Squad Plumbing, you can rest assured that we perform a thorough check throughout your drainage system so you do not have to waste more money on subsequent and unnecessary visits.
DEALING WITH A DETACHED WATER HEATER VENT FOR A HOMEOWNER IN FORT WORTH
In this project, the homeowner recently had a new roof installed. Unfortunately, the water heater vent in their attic was detached during the installation of the new roof, which means carbon monoxide could get into the attic. This poses a huge health risk. Prolonged exposure will lead to carbon monoxide poisoning that causes tissue damage and even death.
Luckily, we got on the job quickly—the vent was easily reattached to the water heater. We had one guy on the project site to work on it. It didn’t take him long to accomplish his task.
