Helpful Tips

Here are a few friendly reminders about how to prevent clogs in your drains:

  • You should never flush anything besides human waste and toilet paper. This means you should not flush any feminine products or even wipes. Don’t even flush “flushable” wipes. Yes they will flush but they will clog your line.
  • Make sure not to put food or even food scraps down your garbage disposal. Throw them away instead. They can cause your disposal to jam or break.
  • It’s also a good idea to brush your hair before you shower or bathe so all that hair does not go down the drain and cause a blockage.

A Day in the Life

These are pictures of our plumbers replacing a water service recently. The water service that was currently in place was shared between two homes. We replaced it so they each have their own service. All of this you see in the photos was dug by hand. A typical day in the life of our hard working plumbers!

We were very pleased with the service, workmanship, and promptness of the repair. This was in a wall, in a precarious place, and they did a great job of keeping the repair in the wall small while repairing the pipe. We will definitely use them again with any other plumbing needs.

What an amazing experience – making the appointment was so easy, they were able to work with my schedule. I received a courtesy call when they were on the way – service team was prompt, professional and found the problem very quickly. Repair was done quickly and services were very reasonably priced. Excellent value! Excellent customer service!
I highly recommend Cain’s Able Plumbing.

I have used CAP several different times. The 1st was to install new hose bibs and water hydrant, the 2nd was to connect to city water. Both experiences were great and they answered all of my questions. No one works for free but there pricing is fair for everyone! I am going to hook to city sewer soon and I will be call CAP to do the job! I highly recommend not wasting time getting multiple quotes just call them now!

The old copper pipes, in my house, needed replaced because of continuous leaks. I also needed my electric water heater replaced and a new water filtration system installed. Most of the quotes I received were well over $10,000 from other plumbers. Cain‚Äôs Able plumbing came out and looked over my plumbing situation and said they would replace all of my copper pipes with pex, install a new water heater, and install the water filtration system (which I had to purchase) for UNDER $4000. I am so glad I found these guys. They were very professional and showed up right on time. They went over and above to provide exceptional service. I would highly recommend these guys and no, I am not related to them.ūüėÄ

We Are Here For You

Last week we went out to replace a sewer line in a crawl space and basement. We rerouted two sewer lines out of the side and front of the home. We also cut and removed the concrete to install the new lines to the city and then reinstalled the concrete. It was a tough job, but our guys are always up for the challenge when it comes to helping out our customers!

Prevent Clogs in Your Drain

There are a number of things that can cause a clog in your drain. Cooking grease, coffee grounds, hair, soap scum, and leftover food are a few common culprits.

Tips:

  • Save cooking grease in a container such as an old coffee can and just throw it away.
  • Coffee grounds can be thrown away or you can put them in your mulch pile if you have one.
  • For hair and soap scum, use a screen (or drain-grate) to cover the drain opening. You can also brush your hair before you bathe or shower. That will help keep the loose hair from getting into the drain. If you bathe your dog in the tub, put a washcloth over the drain to keep the hair from going down it.
  • Put leftover food in the trash, NOT the garbage disposal.

Regular Cleaning Maintenance:

  • Run hot water down the sink after each use. Hot water will keep the oils from food products running down the drain instead of building up inside the surface of the pipes. You can also put a handful of baking soda into the drain first and then follow it with hot water. Baking soda is great to clean with and it also helps absorb bad odors.

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!

“FLUSHABLE” Wipes

There is no such thing as a “FLUSHABLE” wipe.
Manufacturers of¬†baby wipes¬†will often indicate on the packaging that the product is “flushable.” Plumbing experts say there’s no such thing as a flushable¬†wipe. Because¬†wipes¬†don’t break down in water, they can clog up plumbing systems in a home, and damage pipes and machinery at wastewater treatment plants.

https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/columbinewsd/news/flushable-wipes-are-not

With the Covid-19 outbreak and the shortage of toilet paper, consumers have turned to sanitary wipes under many brands to take care of personal hygiene when it comes to using the bathroom. Unfortunately most folks take the packaging at it’s word and flush this wipes in the toilet. This is wreaking havoc with sanitary sewer systems everywhere. Cain’s recently went to a customers home to clear a main sewer line blockage. The sewer line was full of 100’s of sanitary wipes. It took hours to remove them, and made for a bill that could have been completely avoided, if the wipes had been disposed of in another way.

So, how do we dispose of these wipes if we can’t flush them? Here are a couple of suggestions.

As you can see by the image above, while toilet paper fully breaks down, sanitary wipes do not. This is after 1 year of being inside the jars. Please take a moment to think about it before you flush wipes down the sewer. Even if it isn’t going to cost you money, in the end, it is going to cost someone money. That’s easy to avoid. Just don’t flush anything except human waste and toilet paper in the toilet.
