Garbage Disposal Replacement
If your garbage disposal is broken, leaking or simply inoperable, call A&H Plumbing, serving Northern VA, DC and MD. We have years of experience with garbage disposal replacement. We offer a wide variety of name brand garbage disposals for residential and commercial applications and can help you select the model that best suits your disposal needs.
Most modern garbage disposals will last between 8 to 15 years. Earlier models do not last as long. Typically the blades wear down or the motor burns out and it’s more cost effective to replace the garbage disposal with a new one. However, if you find that your garbage disposal is humming, it means it is probably jammed and not rotating and can be easily fixed.
Drain Clearing & Sewer Repair
Many homeowners can fix their own drains when a sink or toilet is clogged, but in some circumstances more serious issues with drains and sewers require expert attention by a qualified plumber. The professional plumbers at A&H Plumbing will arrive to your residence or business on time, diagnose the drain and sewer issues, provide you with a price for making the drain or sewer repairs and fix the issue properly.
We can employ a wide variety of techniques & equipment to help solve drain and sewer issues. In some cases we will use a plumbers snake, a hand held drain auger or even airburst drain cleaners. When the issues are more severe where the issues actually occur outside of the home, we may use electric drain cleaners and sewer jetters.
There are warning signs when major problems occur with drains, such as water going down one drain & backing up in another. Tree roots can invade drains as well as sewer lines and some drains / sewers simply wear out. In older neighborhoods of Northern VA, DC & MD, sewer and drainage systems are a continuous problem require plumbing repair.
Backflow Prevention Test
At A&H Plumbing in Northern VA, we can conduct a backflow prevention test to determine if you have a backflow issue. Back siphonage can occur when the pressure in a tank or water trough is lower than the water system’s pressure.This can occur when a water main bursts, pipes freeze, or an unexpected high demand on a water systems in your area are in play, like numerous fire hydrants being opened simultaneously. A reduction in pressure in a pipe may allow water from soil, from storage or from other sources to be drawn up into your water system, which may contaminate your water.
If concerned that your fresh water system is or has been contaminated, or that you might have a backflow issue, contact A&H Plumbing and we will conduct a test to determine the nature of the problem.
