When the Challenge is over Water

A month ago, we were called out to repair a sewer line. Usually in our line of work, that’s pretty common. What was uncommon about this project, was that we had to bring the sewer across a ravine, at the bottom of which, there was a creek.

This was something that was definitely going to be a challenge. Even a little daunting. But hey! We’re Cain’s, and we were ready to tackle it. It’s what we do! Even the City of Concord employee didn’t doubt us.

As you can see, we completed this project excellently. It took some planning and teamwork, but we are really happy with the results and so were our customers. On to the next one!

Call us here at Cain’s Able Plumbing, for any of your plumbing needs!

I highly recommend Cain’s Able Plumbing. The receptionist was courteous and made the appointment at my convenience. The technician was highly knowledgeable and skillful. I explained the problem I was having with two bathrooms and he knew immediately the resolution to the problems. The job was completed in a timely manner and left no mess for me to clean. He also arrived as promised and was friendly and neat in appearance. I will definitely call them for future plumbing issues.

Plumbing Tips to Save Money

  • Replace outdated faucets that are leaking. The smallest drip can add hundreds of dollars per year to your bill.
  • Look at your meter. If the meter is turning while no water is running, you most likely have a running toilet or leak somewhere.
  • Check for drips every few weeks. Look under cabinets and in your crawl space for puddles, get any leaks fixed as soon as possible.
  • Pay attention to your toilet. If you notice you need to hold the handle or flush repeatedly, if it is always making noises, or taking a long time to fill, it may need a new part.
  • Monitor your yard. If you notice wet spots for prolonged periods of time when it has not rained.

If you need help with any of these issues or think you have a leak, please call our office at 704-934-0015

Baby Wipes in the Toilet!

Almost a full pack of baby wipes our technician pulled out of a customers sewer pipe.

Ever wonder why baby wipes say do not flush? The simple explanation is that they do not dissolve in water like toilet paper. They are thicker and more cloth like. When you put too many in at once, the sewer pipes get clogged and will start to back up. This can cause your main sewer line to back up into your toilet, shower and kitchen sink. Gross, we know. This is why we recommend not disposing of any wipes, even flush-able ones. They do not breakdown in water like toilet paper. If you ever find yourself wondering if something is flush-able, the best thing to do is put it in the garbage and save your money!

Preventing Frozen Pipes

With winter rapidly approaching it is important to remember pipes can freeze. The pipes that are most at risk for freezing are outdoors hose bibs, swimming pool lines, and water lines for irrigation systems. Supply lines that are located in unheated spaces are also at risk of freezing. These lines include water lines located it your basement, crawlspace, garage, and attic. Pipes alongside exterior walls or pipes that have little or no insulation surrounding them risk the possibility as well. Pipes usually freeze when temperatures fall below 20 degrees for a few hours or more. There are a few things you can do to help prevent frozen pipes.

  • When the temperature is below 20 degrees leave your faucets dripping slowly.
  • Insulate any outside piping.
  • Disconnect outside hoses, drain and store them inside.
  • Drain water from pools and irrigation systems.
  • Add insulation to attics, basements, and crawlspaces to help maintain higher temperatures in these areas.
  • Keep garage doors closed if there are supply lines present.
  • Open kitchen and bathroom cabinets to allow warm air to circulate.
  • Keep heat set at the same temperature during the day and night.
  • If you leave for long periods of time, leave you heat on no lower than 55 degrees.
