Common Drain Problems

The most common residential drain to cause problems is the kitchen sink drain. Food particles, grease, soap or detergent build up can all, over time, slow down or completely block the flow of water down to the septic or sewer system. A garbage disposal as well as an installed dishwasher add more pipes to the mix which create more potential for clogs.

The bathroom toilet is another potential source for drain problems. An unwanted clog or an overflow can make for a miserable day. Problems with a tank leaking, running toilet, or improper flushing are not difficult fixes, but are best handled by professionals trained to look beyond the obvious for the appropriate solution.

Using drain cleaner vs. getting a drain cleaning.

A slow drain may be treated with a chemical cleaner as the substance can still find its way all the way through the pipes.

However, a full-blown clog often requires a mechanical cleaning by a professional using a drain snake. This method scrapes the walls of the pipes clean and removes all foreign debris. Your pipes will flow freely. We can help you determine the appropriate solution.

Drain maintenance tips.

To prevent materials from entering your drains, use filters or strainers to help capture larger items, such as food, hair, etc. It is also a good practice to get your drains snaked from time to time.

NEVER POUR LIQUID FATS OR OILS DOWN YOUR SINKS! They can solidify causing clogs.

Regular sewer line cleaning minimizes trouble.

Drain lines from your home to your septic tank or city sewer are susceptible to being plugged or destroyed by roots from trees and scrubs around your dwelling. The best preventive measure is treat the lines with a root destroyer a couple of times a year.

If you are unsure whether your lines have been treated or suspect any root problems, call Shelton Plumbing to perform a video inspection of your lines before trouble starts.

Sewer lines coming into your property can crack or become damaged causing unseen leaks that usually go undetected until you receive an enormous water or sewer bill. This can be a nightmare to a property owner. Avoid this expensive experience by scheduling regular maintenance inspections of your lines.

Water Heater Repair, Installation and Replacement

Are you running out of hot water when taking a shower or washing dishes? This could be the first sign that your water heater is not working properly.

Maybe it needs a new element? Maybe the thermostat needs adjusting? Maybe it is time to replace it? What is the best answer? Call Shelton Plumbing. We can have a service technician inspect your water heater for damage and wear. We are trained to repair and maintain many types of water heaters both residential and commercial.

Residential Systems

The conventional water heater in your home has an important role. Making and keeping water hot. Advances in technology have allowed for more energy-efficient, electric, tank water heaters, as well as the creation of tankless water heaters that can produce a seemingly endless supply of hot water. The power sources include gas, propane, oil, and of course electricity. The newer water heater styles include solar and hybrid heat pumps.

Weigh all the factors then call Shelton Plumbing for a quote on either making repairs on your current water heater or installing a new water heater for your home.

Remember, we have 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, emergency service available. This includes service for a malfunctioning water heater.

Conventional or tankless options for the home.

A conventional water heater is recognized as a cylindrical storage tank ranging in size from 20 to 80 gallons in capacity. This tank is typically insulated with one or two elements that heat the water to the temperature set on the thermostat. Conventional water heaters have been used for decades in residential and commercial buildings. However, this method of constantly heating or keeping the tank of water hot is not very energy efficient, especially if you don’t have a need for hot water 24 hours a day.

As consumers seek to convert to more eco-friendly practices, the use of tankless water heaters has become more popular. A tankless or on-demand water heater sends cold water through coil pipes in the unit, which almost instantly heats the water. This creates an “endless” supply of hot water whenever you demand.

Hybrid systems are also more efficient as they combine the use of a tank for storage with a heat pump that uses air to assist in the water heating process. This may reduce water heating costs by up to 60%.

Shelton Plumbing carries both conventional, tankless, and hybrid water heater systems. We represent top manufacturers like Rinnai tankless water heaters, as well as TruTank tankless water heaters.

Proper assessment of your needs will determine what commercial water heater systems is most practical and cost-effective for your business.

Fast and Accurate Water and Gas Leak Detection

Leak detection, both water and gas, is one of the specialized services performed by Shelton Plumbing.

Water Leaks

You are sitting in your living room and hear what sounds like water dripping. You check all the sink faucets, toilets, tubs, showers, spigots. Nothing is on that you can see. You return to your chair. You still hear the sound. It’s not the dishwasher or washing machine either. Not the ice maker in the freezer. What is making the sound? You retrace your steps, this time checking inside the cabinet under each sink. Ah ha! There it is. Your kitchen drain pipe is dripping. Leak detected.

You may or may not need a plumber to tighten the drain pipe to stop this particular leak, but what if that drip were behind the wall in your kitchen or bathroom, or behind a refrigerator or washing machine, where you may never see it until the water damage is so great it begins to grow mildew inside the walls causing a distinct odor in your room or entire house.

High water or sewer bills may be the first indication that you have a leak in your home or business. You will need a professional to troubleshoot this major issue.

Propane and Natural Gas Leaks

Many gases are odorless and colorless by nature. To help identify gases like propane and natural gas by smell, a substance called mercaptan, which smells like rotten eggs, is added. This odorant makes it more obvious when there is a leak.

If you have gas appliances in your home or business and you smell that odor, you don’t have to panic. You do however, need to find the source of the leak and have it fixed as quickly as possible.

The expert technicians at Shelton Plumbing are equipped with the appropriate tools to find gas leaks in your home of business.

Tops Among Industrial and Commercial Plumbing Contractors

Are you running out of hot water when taking a shower or washing dishes? This could be the first sign that your water heater is not working properly.

Maybe it needs a new element? Maybe the thermostat needs adjusting? Maybe it is time to replace it?

Commercial plumber who knows state and federal regulations.

No matter what your business may be, or how many people pass through it, there are state and federal safety regulations that must be met in accordance with the exact business needs and property use. Plumbing issues can have disastrous affects anywhere, anytime.

What starts out as a clogged toilet could end up being a blockage in a sewer pipe that could shut down your coffee shop.

The shortage of hot water due to a bad water heater in your commercial kitchen means no way to clean your pots and pans and the loss of business. The dripping faucet in public restroom not only wastes water but might lead to a slip hazard. Needless to say, a tiny leak in a gas line could be the most dangerous and disastrous of all.
