Drain Replacement

Drain Replacement in Franklin, IN

A home’s plumbing system consists of two components and they are the water supply system and the drainage system. The supply system brings the home freshwater to use in the home and the drainage system carries dirty wastewater to the sewer system.

When the drains in a home malfunction, the wastewater is trapped and can present a big problem such as backing up into the home.

The company opened in 1969 and since then has been dedicated to providing customers the highest level of workmanship and customer service.

Reasons for a Drain Replacement

You may be more familiar with drains in your sinks and bathtubs, but there are additional drains hidden in your home. Every water-using appliance has a drain and all of those drains lead to the home’s sewer line which in turn leads to the city sewer line or a septic system.

Leaks or clogs are the two main reasons for drain replacements. Drains can malfunction in several ways such as:

Damage to Your Pipes

The home’s pipes can become damaged due to a few factors. Frozen pipes often develop leaks or can burst. Damage can be caused by an accident such as dropping an object on an exposed pipe or driving a nail through a pipe in the wall while trying to hang a picture or shelf.

Buried pipes can be damaged by tree roots infiltrating the sewer line weakening and clogging the pipes. Shifting soil can cause pipe damage when it removes the support under pipes and the sewer line collapses. The line can be pinched, bowed, or broken.

Recurring Clogs

Though occasional clogs are fairly easy to fix, repeat clogs can cause serious problems in the waste line. When drain lines repeatedly clog, they may need to be replaced.

Installing New Appliances or Fixtures

When new appliances or fixtures are installed in a home, they need to be connected to the drainage system, and adjustments often need to be made. Mistakes here can cause drainage problems. Hire a professional plumber for this job.

Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling has drain replacement services available that include retrofitting or relocating your existing drains. We will be sure to do the installation job correctly so the new unit fits seamlessly into the existing plumbing system.

Plumbing That is Getting Old

Home plumbing systems are designed and built to last a long time but they do not last forever. Homes built before the 1970s are at risk of plumbing failure because galvanized steel pipes may have been used.

These pipes were strong but they are susceptible to corrosion and after 50 years or so, they may be weakened by corrosion and need replacement. Replacing these substandard pipes will often solve your plumbing problems.

The Drain Replacement Process

The first step in the drain replacement process is meeting with the plumbing company representative to talk about the scope of the project. Because the goal is to ensure the new drain system meets your home’s needs, the technician wants to be sure to know what you expect from the new drain system.

The plumber will inspect the existing plumbing system to look for potential problems. Then, they will present the homeowner with options for the job including a price estimate. If these plans and budget get your approval, the technician will begin the work of replacing the drain right away. If digging is required there may be a slight delay.

Once the drain replacement is completed it will be tested thoroughly to make sure everything is working properly and you will be happy with its performance. Once the job is satisfactorily completed we will clean up the area of work.
