Most homeowners call a plumber only when they have a problem. Homeowners should get out front of any problem by having a plumber inspect vulnerable parts of the plumbing system. Older homes particularly have plumbing issues which may not be visible yet, but a plumber can check for these.
One important inspection a plumber can make is the sewer drain line. Older homes have clay or cast iron pipes which breakup or rust allowing sewage to leak into the ground creating an environmental hazard and a potential backup into the house of sewage. Tree roots can travel over 100 feet seeking water and the roots will find a way to get into the sewer line and form a large clog which will completely block the sewer line. This will result is the sewage backing up into the house. If this happens, it will likely be on the day of the big party your wife has been planning for months.
The Plumber in Glenview has a video cam he can run down into the line and inspect it for the problems discussed above. The camera will feed back clear pictures of the condition of the line. From these pictures, the plumber will know exactly what to do. If roots have formed a clog, then the plumber will run a high speed set of cutters into the line to bust up the clog and send it on down the drain. These cutters revolve powered by 3200psi water pressure.
The plumber can find leaks inside your home with a high tech electronic instrument that seeks out water. The Plumber in Glenview may find leaks in the walls by examining the walls and the ceiling for moisture and soft wall board or plaster. These leaks can be fixed relatively easy. Your home may have some of the bad piping that will last for 10 to 15 years and then begin to leak. If you have this piping, then you may want to talk to Lakeside Plumb about re-piping your home.
