Experienced Commercial Plumbing Installation

Commercial plumbing is more complex than residential plumbing. Valves, pipe joints and other aspects of the plumbing could not be as accessible as it would be in a home. Pipes are generally larger and the materials used can vary more than for a residence. Different types of businesses have different commercial plumbing installation needs as well.

An office building may need large boilers for the heating systems as well as plumbing for multiple stall restrooms, drinking fountains and break rooms. Grocery stores need plumbing for employee restrooms, public restrooms, produce misters along with plumbing for heating and cooling systems. Restaurants have special plumbing requirements as well. The various plumbing requirements need the services of a company well versed in commercial plumbing.

If you have a business that needs plumbing installed, you do need to be sure you hire a company with excellent qualifications and experience in commercial plumbing. You will want the same company to be able to maintain and repair your plumbing when necessary. The right company will have professionals trained and licensed in commercial plumbing from installing the entire plumbing system to replacing and repairing every part of that system.

It is best to find the company you wish to use as early in the planning process as possible. The plumbing company can then contribute to the process with advice on anything that involves plumbing installation. Their help will make it easier to locate pipes, boilers, etc. and the best materials to use so the plumbing works efficiently and is easier to service. C-IT-ALL Plumbing may be just the company you need. Give them a call at 918-251-3155 to talk to one of their agents about your commercial plumbing installation needs.

Commercial Drain Cleaning Tips For Business and Home

Whether it is in a restaurant kitchen or a home bathroom, a clogged drain is a problem. Kitchens often have grease buildups causing a sink to drain slowly and eventually stop draining at all. Hair, toothpaste and dirt build up and clog bathroom drains. Knowing how to clear the clog will make the sink or tub usable until a plumber can thoroughly clean the pipes of any buildup that remains.

Several methods of opening a clogged drain are given here in these commercial drain cleaning tips. You can try one or more of them to try to get the clog cleared out before calling your plumbing service. These work on clogs fairly close to the drain opening in the sink.

This recipe for drain cleaner is considered on of the best homemade solutions. Into a quart of hot water, add a tablespoon of salt, a cup of white vinegar and a tablespoon of a degreasing formula dish soap. Mix them together well and then pour enough of the solution into the clogged drain to reach the sink. Let it sit for up to ten minutes. If the water disappears, do it again and then run hot water for several minutes to flush the drain. If the clog doesn’t budge and allow the solution to drain, use a plunger to push the clog on through.

Another simple recipe to try is vinegar and baking soda. Pour a cup of baking soda into the drain, wait a few minutes and then pour in a cup of vinegar. Let the combination of baking soda and vinegar fizz until the water drains from the sink and run clean water to finish flush it.

If none of the above tips work, you can try using a plumbing snake to clear the clog. If you don’t have one handy, they can be rented. If the snake doesn’t work, it is likely that the clog is in the drain trap or further along in the pipes. If this is the case, you will need to call your plumber in to clear it and thoroughly clean your pipes. For more tips on cleaning your drain, call C-IT-ALL Plumbing at 918-251-3155.

Find A Leak

You know there is a leak but you can’t find just where the leak is. All you see is the evidence that there is one somewhere. How do you find a leak that is hidden? You could probably find it but would likely tear up far more than you need to in the process. Call a plumber instead. He will have the expertise to find a leak without tearing up half your property.

No matter where the leak may be, a good plumber with the right tools can find a leak and fix it with minimal damage to your home or yard. Instruments the plumber has at his disposal can detect a broken pipe hidden from view by soil or concrete so only the spot where the leak is needs to be opened up.

Though most companies try to keep up with tools and training in these techniques, not all companies do. Be sure to ask when you call a company the first time. Don’t assume they will be able to find every leak no matter where it is. This is especially true if you have water pipes under a concrete floor in your basement or garage. It can be quite expensive to replace the whole floor so you want to be sure that the plumber you chose has the ability to find leaks before tearing up any property.

When you have to find a leak that is not obvious, call a knowledgeable plumber such as those at C-IT-ALL. Give them a call to learn more about their services and how they can save you time and money on all your plumbing needs. You can reach them at 918-251-3155.

Plumbing Contractors: Did You Plumb Forget?

Plumbing Contractors: Did You Plumb Forget?

Building or remodeling a home involves quite a lot of planning. Forgetting to consider a necessary aspect of the whole project can be all too easy. Before you start the actual work, sit down and list all the professionals you need to use to complete the building or remodeling. Near the top of that list should be electrical and plumbing contractors.

Careful planning will keep you from discovering that you have had the water, sewer and gas pipes installed before the walls were enclosed. Nothing can cause delays and added expense like having to tear open walls and flooring to install wires and pipes.

If you are using a general building and remodeling contractor, find out which company or companies they usually subcontract electrical and plumbing work to and check them out. Find out if you can hire a different company if you have one you prefer that they don’t typically use. It is better to have confidence in the electricians and plumbers doing the work than to just let the general contractor use companies you don’t know or feel comfortable with.

Once you have settled on a plan and the companies you want to use, keep tabs on the project from start to finish. Be as involved as you can so you can ask questions and answer any questions they may have. If some change in the plans need to be made, you are aware of it right away and can be apprised of what needs to be changed and why. Chances are good that it will have a ripple effect with the electrical and plumbing contractors, causing them to make adjustments to the planned wiring and plumbing work.

If you are planning to build or remodel your home or business, be sure to call C-IT-ALL at 918-251-3155 to get an estimate from them for your project.

The Frustration of a Leaking Toilet (Toilet Repair)

Have you ever had a leaking toilet and couldn’t find where the leak was? Frustrating, isn’t it. Not all leaks are obvious about just where they are. All you know is that there is constant puddle of water around the toilet.

You could keep looking for the leak yourself and try different ways of stopping it but that could just add to your frustration. It is best to call a plumber to find and fix the leak properly. It could be as simple as tightening a valve or it could also be a more extensive toilet repair.

One of the most frustrating causes of a leaking toilet happens when the seal around the connection to the sewer line is not maintaining a good seal. Water comes from under the toilet bowl and pools all around it.

Another type of leak that causes frustration is one that can’t seem to be found. You know it is somewhere between the bottom of the tank and the valve that controls the water flow to fill the tank. You test the water pipe connections and they seem tight but the leak is still there. A plumber will know how to find the cause of the leak and fix it quickly.

Getting toilet repair done is important for more than just relieving your frustration and the inconvenience of constantly mopping the floor. The floor can be damaged and have a loss of integrity if the leak is allowed to continue for a long period of time. It is best to get it fixed as soon as possible so you don’t end up with more costly repairs later. Take care of that leak now and call C-IT-ALL at 918-251-3155. One of their plumbing specialists will soon have that problem fixed at a reasonable price.

Remodeling Commercial Facilities (industrial plumbing solutions)

Remodeling a commercial building offers a chance to find, repair and replace aging plumbing that could become faulty. Even if it appears to be fine, it might not be. You want to be sure you have a professional plumber inspect all the plumbing in the building during the remodeling so you can be sure that all the plumbing meets current standards and is in good repair before the remodel is complete. It will save time and money as there is less likelihood of plumbing problems showing up soon after the remodel is done.

A plumbing inspector will do more than inspect the typical plumbing such as water pipes. Sewer would also be expected as a normal part of a plumbing inspection but so would boilers, steam and condensation pipes, natural gas lines and other gas lines, and a number of other types of lines, depending on the type of business. A well-qualified plumbing professional is able to determine the best industrial plumbing solutions needed to make certain all the plumbing in the remodeled facility meets all the state and county codes currently required.

Arranging for the inspection to be done early on in the project means any plumbing work needed will not cause too much of a delay in the scheduled completion. Once the inspector has identified what needs to be repaired or replaced, the work can be arranged for and added to the remodeling project.

Call C-IT-ALL as soon as a remodeling of your commercial building is planned so a professional in industrial plumbing solutions can be scheduled to inspect all the plumbing of the building and advise you of work that may be needed. You can reach them to schedule an inspection at 918-251-3155. You will be glad you didn’t skip this important part of remodeling.

Home Remodeling: Don’t Forget the Plumbing (plumbing contractor)

Remodeling a home requires careful and detailed planning. You might be doing most of the work yourself or hiring contractors to do all of it if you don’t have time or know how to do it yourself. One area of remodeling not to overlook is plumbing. This is one part of the job you should not consider doing yourself for many reasons. Among them are time, overall cost and most of all, safety. While you may be fine with a few water pipes, there is much more to plumbing than that.

If your home has a natural gas stove, clothes dryer, furnace and/or water heater, a plumber will be needed to install, repair or replace any lines or units. Gas lines are not something you should try to work with yourself as it can be dangerous to do so. A plumbing contractor has the training necessary to work with these lines safely.

As you plan your home remodeling, you may know of upgrades or changes you want done that would require a plumber, such as replacing a regular tank water heater with a tankless water heater. Other such things might include installing a new bathtub, garbage disposer or water lines for icemakers or water dispensers in a refrigerator. While planning for these, it is wise to have all your other plumbing inspected. You could have aging pipes and lines that look fine at first but a closer look shows they could be problematic in the not too distant future.

With all of these considerations, it is best to have a plumbing contractor handle all the plumbing in your remodeling project. It will save you time, make sure nothing is overlooked and be more cost effective in the long run. For an estimate, call C-IT-ALL at 918-251-3155. You will be glad you did.

Slab Leak Detection: No Need to Tear Up Your Slab Floor or Pool Deck

Slab Leak Detection: No Need to Tear Up Your Slab Floor or Pool Deck

Leaks can happen under a slab floor or deck, making you think the worst in finding and repairing it. You may be thinking the only way to find and repair such a leak is to tear up the slab. This is not the case, however. A knowledgeable, experienced plumber can find and repair the leak without causing damage to the slab.

If all the water is turned off but you hear what sounds like running water, you could have a slab leak. Other things that could indicate such a leak may include a spot that feels warmer or cooler than it should, cracks in the floor, pool deck or walls, mildew or damp feeling carpets. Check your water bill, too. If it is higher than it should be, you could have a leak.

To verify such a leak and get an estimate on repair options and cost, contact a plumbing company that has slab leak detection and repair experience. A professional with expertise in this kind of work will know how to find any problems and determine how extensive they are using the most modern tools and instruments. Once this is established, he will be able to give you repair options and a cost estimate.

Repairs will be done in the least destructive manner possible. Sometimes, a spot repair that involves opening the slab in the specific area of the leak to repair the pipe may be the best option. Other cases, such as in older homes or buildings, replacing or rerouting the pipeline might be recommended. For a series of small leaks, normal repair options may not be feasible so epoxy pipe coating may be the recommendation.

If you suspect a leak under your slab, give C-IT-ALL a call at 918-251-3155 and have one of their professional plumbers find that leak for you.

Let the Professionals Repair Slab Leaks (Slab leak repair)

If you think you have a slab leak, call a plumber before grabbing your sledgehammer and breaking up that slab. It may not be necessary to completely destroy the slab to find the leak or to repair it. A well-equipped and knowledgeable plumber can pinpoint a slab leak without tearing up to slab. Once found, the best options to repair the leak can be given.

Slab leak repair can be done with minimal destruction to the slab but it does require some destruction. Fortunately, knowing exactly where the leak is will keep the entire slab from having to be broken up. The following are the options you may be given for leak repairs.

Epoxy pipe coating: This repair option is best for cases in which there is a series of small leaks and involves using in-place pipe coating inside the pipes. It is used when the series of leaks makes other repair options too expensive or it is not possible to dig up the slab.

Repipe or Reroute: This may be the best option for older homes that have had numerous leaks in the past. In this option, the leaking pipe will be completely replaced.

Spot repair: This type of repair is best suited for newer construction as it will be the less costly. The slab is opened directly over the leak and the pipe section replaced or repaired.

The above options usually do not require an entire slab be torn apart or even a large section. Of course, it does depend on the number and extensiveness of the leaks. Most of the time, leaks are suspected and confirmed before they get so bad that the entire slab must be torn up. Then, the less invasive slab repair methods can be used for the most cost effective solutions. If you think you may have a slab leak, call 918-251-3155 and have a knowledgeable plumber find the leak for you.
