Leaky and Frozen Pipe Repair
Leaky and burst pipes are a common cause of plumbing issues and can potentially cause flooding. If leaks are not addressed, homes can suffer extensive water damage and sanitation hazards. Aside from wear caused by age, cold weather is one of the most common causes of pipe failure. During the winter months, water can freeze in the pipes, leading to expansion and rupture. Once water thaws, the home may experience flooding. If you notice that you're having a loss of water pressure in your showers or sinks, it may be due to frozen pipes.
At Dahme, we have extensive experience in this area and can provide prompt service to replace your frozen or worn piping. Before you call a plumber, it's often helpful to visually check the pipes in question. If they're coated in ice, they're likely suffering from leaks, and it's important to shut off your main water line. To prevent these issues, keep your house at 55 degrees or warmer during the coldest parts of the year.
Drain & Sewer Service
Drain blockages are one of the most common plumbing issues that customers face. Almost everyone has experienced a backed-up shower drain, toilet, or sink. Aside from being inconvenient, these issues can be a safety and health hazard, so it's important to resolve them promptly. Sewer pump malfunctions are another common issue that can prevent drainage and cause backups. At Dahme, we provide a wide range of services to help customers solve drain and sewer issues, including:
- Video inspections: Our professionals can insert a video camera into the sewer pump to diagnose any issues you might be having.
- High-pressure sewage jetting: In this procedure, a plumber feeds a high-pressure jet into the sewer to strip debris and clear blockages.
- Sewer rodding: This is an alternative method that involves inserting a rod to clear debris and obstructions.
RPZ Valve Installation and Repair
Reduced pressure zone (RPZ) devices prevent backflow into your clean water supply and eliminate contamination. These devices are required in all homes that have irrigation systems. Most areas require RPZ inspection and certification every year to ensure safe water consumption. These inspections must be carried out by a cross-connection control device inspector (CCCDI).
Dahme's staff of experienced technicians can help customers install RPZ devices to prevent water contamination. They can also provide annual inspections and routine maintenance for these devices. If you have questions about regulations in your area, Dahme's professionals can help you reach full compliance.
Garbage Disposal Installation and Repair
Garbage disposals are common household devices that break down food waste so that it can travel through pipes. Although not universal, these devices are commonly found in one well of kitchen sinks. Garbage disposals may start to break down and become less effective over time, leading to clogs and backups.
If you live in the Arlington Heights area and have a malfunctioning garbage disposal at home, Dahme's trained plumbers can easily repair or replace it at a time that works for you. If your home isn't equipped with a garbage disposal, our team can also install a high-quality device in your kitchen sink.
Sump Pump Repair, Installation, and Replacement
Sump pumps are useful devices that many home owners install in their basements. The primary goal of these devices is to prevent flooding and corresponding water damage. In some cases, gravity may not affect proper drainage. In these cases, a sump pump can help move water away from low points and into a drainage area away from the foundation. Dahme's team of experienced technicians can provide a wide range of sump pump services for your home, including installation, replacement, maintenance, and repair.
During sump pump installation, a technician starts by digging a hole, called a sump basin, in a low part of the basement. This area collects water in case of flooding. Next, they install a pump, which can be a submersible or pedestal-mounted model. Once the basin begins to fill with water, the pump will direct it into a drainage system to keep it from accumulating.
Our technicians can also help you set up a backup power system for your pump. This can provide auxiliary power to the pump and keep it working during power outages. Since outages and flooding both often occur during storms, a backup battery system can be a great investment.
Water Heater Service
Water heaters are important devices that provide hot water for sinks, baths, showers, and washing machines. When water heaters malfunction, it can lead to hot water shortages or to a complete lack of hot water. Even if your water heater hasn't experienced any damage, it might simply be worn out. Most devices last anywhere from six to 13 years, and it's important to get yours checked if it's an older model.
Dahme's technicians can provide a wide range of services for water heaters in the Arlington Heights area. If yours needs an inspection, some routine maintenance, or a repair, our staff is standing by. We can also install water heaters of various sizes, depending on the needs of your family. We offer both traditional and tankless water heaters according to preference.
