We install garbage disposals in new construction projects. We also install replacement units for homeowners whose disposals have broken or stopped working.
Gas Line Repairs and Gas Tests
Yes, plumbers perform gas tests and handle gas line repairs. If your home is piped for gas, a plumber is a tradesperson to call for gas appliance installations, maintenance, and repairs.
If you suspect a leak, drain, or sewer issue underneath your slab foundation, Abacus professionals can diagnose and fix it. Signs of broken plumbing under a slab include foundation cracks, warmth under the floor, a water bill increase, or a wet area on the floor. Leak detection equipment will isolate the issue. Our technicians will cut through the slab, fix the leak, and then repair the slab.
Electronic Leak Detection
Advances in technology have made available accurate electronic leak detectors. The leak detection unit enables a plumber to identify distinctive soundwaves emanating from a pipe with leaks. A pipe with no leaks produces a different kind of soundwave. Frequencies also vary with pipe thickness, the fluids inside a pipe, and the pressure being exerted on leaks.
Amplification of the soundwaves allows a plumber to hear the waves, analyze them, identify the leak, and come up with a course of action. With an electronic leak detector, a technician can find leaks in pipes, drains, toilets, oil pipes, steam pipes, water supply systems, and more.
Sewer cameras allow technicians to inspect sewer lines and identify blockages and breaks in the system. A tiny camera is mounted on the end of a snake and fed into the sewer line. It sends back video footage of the interior which is extremely helpful for identifying the composition of the blockages. This information helps Abacus technicians know if the blockage can be dissolved or if it needs to be blasted apart.
Yard or landscaping drains carry excess water away from homes and buildings toward ditches, swales, ponds, cisterns, or streams. Yard drains are vulnerable to intrusion by silt, dirt, debris, and tree roots. Over time, buildups and blockages can occur. Abacus plumbers clear out landscaping drains so that water can run freely through them again.
We provide plumbing inspection services for homeowners and commercial clients. We recommend regular inspections (at least once a year) of plumbing and sewer systems to identify leaks, cracks, clogs, and areas that are vulnerable or compromised. Problems that are caught and addressed early eliminate the need for expensive repairs later. Inspections can also avert plumbing emergencies.
High-Pressure Drain Cleaning
High-pressure cleaning, also called hydro jetting, is when plumbers direct water under very high pressure into tanks or pipes. The purpose of high-pressure cleaning is to remove tough blockages like tree root masses or solidified plugs of grease and sludge. Only trained and experienced Abacus plumbers carry out this service since water under such high pressure causes severe damage if accidentally misdirected.
In older homes and structures with deteriorating pipes and water lines, repiping is sometimes necessary. Repiping is the process of replacing old pipes with new ones. Signs that a house may need Abacus repiping services include discolored water coming out of faucets and overall water pressure problems.
We keep up to date on the latest plumbing technologies in order to make the best recommendations to our customers.
