Snaking

Plumbers will often choose to snake the sewer line first, snaking is an excellent way to clear a soft stoppage or free a small blockage in the line. There are many ways and many snakes to snake a drain line.

Clearing a tub drain stoppage is done with a small snake one we like to call the baby snake. Using the baby snake with a 25-foot cable you can clear the clogged drain through the overflow in the tub.

Clogged kitchen sink drain? Clogged bathroom sink drain? No problem, often a clogged bathroom sink drain can be cleared with a top snake and only takes few minutes to free the line and clear the clogged drain. If that doesn’t work, then the clogged sink has a stoppage farther down the line. No need to worry though these clogged drains can be cleared by pulling the p-trap and using a bit larger of a snake we like to call the Jr. snake. Once the p-trap is pulled you can use a 50-foot cable to reach the stoppage and clear the clogged drain. We use the same Jr. snake to clear a kitchen sink drain but always try to use a clean out. There is usually a clean out located on the outside wall of the kitchen, if not then we pull the p-trap under the kitchen sink and snake from there to clear the line.

Finally clogged toilets, how to unclog a toilet in most cases is quite simple if the toilet is the only affected item. Clogged toilets can be cleared by using an auger, but the auger can only go into the toilet about 3 to 6 feet max. If that doesn’t clear the clogged toilet then this is when things get a bit tricky, and you should always consider calling a Professional to diagnose these stoppages. Clearing a clogged toilet or as we like to say a main line stoppage requires a main line machine, a snake with a 7/8 cable and 150 feet of cable. These snakes have a wide variety of heads that can be used for different types of clogs. Cutting heads are used most often for roots and large amounts of debris that has piled up in one location. Roots are one of the biggest problems affecting a main line sewer and having a sewer clean out will drastically improve our ability to open the line and get you draining again. Although it is common for a professional plumber to snake from a roof vent it can be ineffective when snaking a main line stoppage caused by roots. Roof vents are rarely 4 inch and require us to extend our cable out about 60 feet on average before we reach the roots out in the yard. When roots are the cause, and a main line machine will not clear the stoppage it’s time to Hydro Jet the sewer line. Contact us or Call us today (714) 465-7819

Lining

Your sewer and water lines that run in and out of your home are extremely important, but they eventually wear out and become damaged. In the past, this meant you would have to dig up your yard, pull out the old pipes, and place in new ones—a process that took days or weeks, tearing up your property. Today, homeowners have a new, better option available that saves money and fixes the problem economically: CIPP (cured-in-place pipe) relining.

WHY RE-LINE YOUR PLUMBING PIPES RATHER THAN REPLACE THEM?

Cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) relining is a simple yet effective way to fix your sewer line by using the piping already installed and simply sealing it off using a liquid sleeve epoxy solution. All you need is a small hole in the ground for our machines to access the damaged or broken pipes. The result is essentially a brand-new pipe inside of the old one, extending the life of the system while saving time and money.

With epoxy pipe lining, we can fix pipes of nearly any size and material, ranging from as small and narrow as 1¼” to as large as 6”. We can coat both lined and unlined pipes, even traveling around bends or corners to make sure we can get to the issue wherever it might be hiding. Even if your sewer pipes are old and failing, we can rehabilitate them without digging up your yard. Contact us or Call today (714) 465-7819

Boring

Pipe Boring

Pipe boring is an efficient way to install pipes without damaging land or vegetation. Instead of digging up a trench, the bore path will be made by using machines designed for shallow arcs- making it less invasive on both soil quality and natural resources like water sources. If you're looking into installing cables in areas not suitable enough for trenches such as rocky terrain then this might just do what your needs are! Below are a few facts about this 
trenchless pipe installation procedure that you should know about before you choose a method.

Available Methods

Our process has three steps. The first step involves drilling a hole in the path which has been mapped out. This is done for receiving pipes, cables, or conduits that are placed later. Second, we open up space where needed by widening them with an enlarging tool called a back reamer. When all areas are wide enough at their corresponding sizes -we're ready to put our pipe strategically into those newly created slots! The process to install a pipeline is not easy, but with our expert team, it can be done in just minutes. To prevent the pipe from getting stuck on either side of where they meet or slip jointed together while being pulled through an opening we use a special kind of drilling fluid that acts as a lubricant. This helps reduce friction so as not damage any parts along its length and also cleans up debris left behind by earthmoving equipment during excavation work for future installations -which means fewer needed resources wastefully thrown away after completed projects!

Techniques utilized in boring

1. Auger technique This boring process is a safe way to remove soil from the ground. This technique uses rotating cutting heads that are connected together by strings, which allow them both freedom of movement while being securely held in place so there's no chance for injury when operating at height or on top of other machinery The Lead-Hole Boring Technique provides efficient and cost-effective solutions with little environmental impact because it doesn't require extensive open land disrupting construction schedules 2. Directional drilling A drilling rig is a complex machine that is used for creating holes in the ground. The first step of drilling involves creating space and then directing the by launching them from above and steering them around. The area is lubricated and mud is removed in the process. This is the most widely used technique.

Equipment Required

1. Pipes Pipes come in a variety of materials and shapes, including plastics like polyethylene or PVC. They can be made from metal such as iron (or steel) for durability purposes if needed! 2. Drills Drills are used to create holes in the rock or soil. The size of your drill will be determined by what you need it for: pipe, conduit, or cable? The size will be determined by need. Capacities range from 1800 feet all the way up to over 5000 feet! 3. Pumps and hoses The right pump and hose combination is key to minimizing fluid waste.  Without them, there will be a lot more spending on top of your budget! These are necessary for supplying drilling fluid at the right amount of pressure. 4. Mud Reclaimer The Mud Reclaimer keeps your equipment running smoothly by removing any mud that might prevent it from doing its job. 5. Excavator Excavators are a type of construction equipment that is used for removing soil. They have a large bucket that is attached to a boom and a cab. The operator sits in the cab and uses a joystick to control the movement of the excavator.

Advantages of trenchless pipe installation technology

1. It is eco-friendly The device is designed to minimize damage caused by excavating the soil. The mechanism used ensures that disturbance will be minimal, so all you'll see around your property are results- not hassle! 2. It is quicker. The method is a time-saving and soil-preserving alternative to traditional methods. The pipes are laid as boring continues, reducing the amount of work that needs to be done in order for them to connect with one another or their destinations on site. The implementation also eliminates any need to dig up trenches which not only takes valuable resources but can be very dangerous if there are unforeseen complications while doing so! 3. Saves on space With trenching, space has to be created where the trenches will be dug. Pipe boring, on the other hand, can be done even under existing roads and buildings. It is a very economical process. 4. No need to relocate people while installing the pipe In contrast to traditional methods, boring only affects a small area and does not cause significant damage. This means that people in the neighborhood will be able to stay where they are during this process without having their lives disrupted by construction equipment or other disruptors on site. 5. It is easier to rehabilitate the area. Areas, where trenches are dug, may take months to be restructured. This is not the case with pipe boring. Within a few days or weeks, the area can be declared safe for use. 6. It is very accurate. The high levels of accuracy attainable with this method make it a popular choice for those who need to ensure a perfect fit. 7. The pipes are easy to repair When pipes leak, the personnel will easily access the damaged part of the pipe through the two openings; the receiver and the initial hole. 8. It is a very clean method Little debris is left after the completion of the installation process since only the surface is excavated.

Disadvantages of this Process

1. It could be costly. The equipment involved in this technique can be very expensive. This can influence the overall cost incurred during installation. 2. It can only be done in specific soil types. Rocks with no spaces in between are the best for pipe boring. Sedimentary materials are also appropriate for the technique. Soft soils will not work well with this method. Therefore, ensure you know your soil type before choosing the boring method. Pipe installation is a very common thing in today's world. In fact, most of the telecommunications cables and sewer lines are placed belowground these days as well; however, there must be an appropriate method for doing so that results in a maximum output from pipes/cables being installed into soil maliciously without damaging anything or anyone nearby by accident during the installation process because accidents can happen at any time - even after construction has been completed! This technique called "bored tunneling" offers great benefits over traditional methods like boring out holes which would take too much space (time) due to also having difficulties when trying to fix problems later down the road if something goes wrong. However, pipe boring cannot be done by just anybody. Therefore, ensure you select a reputable service provider to install your pipes underground using this technology.

Copper & PEX Re-Pipe

What is a Whole House Re-pipe?

When Crandall’s Plumbing Heating & AC quotes a whole house Re-pipe, we start at the main water shut off and replace all hot and cold-water lines for the entire home to the angle stops, hose bibs throughout the house, and connect to all shower valves.

Copper is the most common metal used today for plumbing pipes, and it has been in everyday use from the 1970s onwards. Copper pipes will usually last for around 50 years.

Uponor PEX pipe is not only cheaper than copper but more durable too. Uponor PEX is immune to corrosion and mineral build-up. Uponor PEX is not affected by electrolysis, which can cause small pinhole leaks in copper piping.

While copper is an excellent material, no material is perfect. You can develop some problems with your copper pipes, and Uponor PEX is often a great replacement that can eliminate these problems. Keep hot water hot. Uponor PEX keeps the water warmer as it flows through the pipe so that you get hotter water on the other end; in most cases, when we re-pipe a house with Uponor PEX, you will also get an increase in water volume.

A whole house re-pipe is a crucial investment for any homeowner. By renewing your home's infrastructure, you'll protect yourself from water damage, ensure that your family has access to clean water, and increase the overall comfort of your home.
