Some of the other things that can cause a clogged drain are putting the wrong items down your garbage disposal. (For a list of the items you should never put down your garbage disposal, sign up for our free information report (Five Ways To Avoid Calling a Plumber) located elsewhere on this site.) When your disposal jams it will often clog your drain and cause a real mess. Please understand that it can be dangerous to put your hand down a garbage disposal to free it up; ALWAYS MAKE SURE YOUR DISPOSAL IS UNPLUGGED FROM THE WALL BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY KIND OF MAINTENANCE ON IT.
Another very common way drains get clogged is in the actual sewer line coming from your house out to the street. This is called a “run-out”. When the run out gets clogged (typically from a build up of sludge over the years), you’ll usually need what is called a jetter to unclog the line. The jetter is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a device that shoots high powered jets of water down your sewer line to break free any blockage that’s in the way.
Most times when we use a jetter we’ll use it in conjunction with our camera as well. We can use our specialized camera system to look into your sewer system and both find the obstruction and double check to make sure it’s gone before we finish.
Most homeowners know how to work a plunger and pour chemical drain cleaners down a clogged drain, yet, sometimes these measures are insufficient for drain cleaning. We have the experience, training and equipment to make your plumbing problem go away fast and stay away!

GARBAGE DISPOSAL REPAIR & REPLACEMENT 100% guaranteed!
GARBAGE DISPOSAL ISSUES?
When garbage disposals break you usually know it in one of two ways,
either they start making a terrible racket, or they make no sound at all. Both situations have their dangers. If they make a terrible racket, that usually means the inner-bearing is gone and this can cause the disposal to spin out of balance.
The other issue is when they don’t make any noise at all. This means they’re not running and if they’re not running, it means water is going to start backing up into your sink. New modern day sinks with built in disposals depend on the disposals running in order to ensure proper water flow out of your sink into your drainage system.
So it’s important either way, to contact us as soon as you detect a problem with your garbage disposal.
If your garbage disposal is out of order, Superior Plumbing can provide professional service to restore it or replace it with a quality new garbage disposal so your kitchen is functioning once again.
Repairing garbage disposals or upgrading to a new, more powerful and efficient unit is a job best left to our skilled technicians. We’ll schedule a convenient appointment, arrive on time, make all the needed repairs or replacement, thoroughly clean the work area and guarantee our work.
Why spend another day living with the inconvenience of a garbage disposal that isn’t working properly or needs replacement?
At Superior Plumbing we install and repair all makes of garbage disposals from residential models to commercial foodservice garbage disposers.
VIDEO INSPECTION ON YOUR SEWER LINE 100% guaranteed!
Video camera inspections accurately identify the source of the problem whether it be broken pipes, root growth, mud or grease backed up, or any other circumstance.
Slow draining or clogged pipes may be a result of root interruption, crushed or cracked pipes, or pipes that have become askew.
We will share the results of our video scan with you directly on the spot. You’ll have the opportunity to see exactly what is going on in your sewer pipes and decide for yourself if you want to take further action. We, of course, will make our recommendations, but we always defer to the client as to what they would prefer to have done on their property.
We carry the video equipment on most of our trucks and can usually perform the inspection right there on the spot without a second trip.
Don’t waste time and money, the next time you’re in need of plumbing repairs, have them easily and properly identified with a camera inspection from Superior Plumbing.
• Reduces Troubleshooting Time
The next most common leak is typically under the sink. This also can be caused by a worn gasket but is much more likely to be caused by either a clogged drain or a misalignment of the pipes under your sink. When you have clogged drain in either the “J-Trap” or “S-Joint” it causes standing water and the standing water will leak out the side of the bad joint.
The misalignment of the pipes comes from storing cleaners, buckets, dish soap, etc. under the sink. Reaching under the sink to store or get the items often results in the items getting “shoved” into the pipes and it knocks them out of alignment. Once the pipes are out of alignment, the water seeps through the gaps betweens the pipes.
This is often a more serious leak because it can undetected for some time and can drip water into the bottom of your sink or bathroom cabinet and even possibly the baseboard of your home causing “dry rot” and the need for costly repairs. it’s a good idea to check every once in a while to see if you have a leak under your sink and give us a call when you discover one.

JET CLEANING IS SUPERIOR CLEANING 100% guaranteed!
HAVE YOU TRIED JET CLEANING?
A clogged sewer drain can affect the function of the plumbing system at your residential or commercial property. Impairments in the sewer line need to be cleared in order to maintain optimal sewer operation. Hydro-jetting completely removes the blockage altogether.
Sewer jetting services will ensure clear free flowing drainage pipe. High-Pressure water clears obstructions to restore free flowing drain function. Approved for all types of piping sizes and materials. Removes sediment from sewer lines AND more effective than snaking.
Water heaters are kept in confined places like a water heater closet or an outdoor extension to the house. If there is a gas leak in such a confined space it can be VERY dangerous to re-light the pilot light and could cause an explosion. Make sure that you have opened the door to the water heater enclosure and kept it open for at least five minutes and confirm that you don’t’ have a gas leak before you go any further.
If you have a leak in your water heater, this might be either a very easy fix or a not so easy fix. It depends on where the leak is; input valve, pressure release valve, the bottom of the heater itself. All of these leaks require a different technique to fix them.
And most typically if the leak is at the bottom of the water heater, you’ll need a new water replacement. (This is because a leak at the bottom of the water heater often signifies that the heater has rusted out internally and can no longer function as a water container.
Whatever the issue might be, Superior Plumbing’s trained personnel are experts at repairing water heaters and can probably have hot water again in your house in no time. Give us a call today, you’ll be glad you did.
