3 Reasons Your Pipes Should Be Professionally Inspected

June 3, 2019 in Plumbing, Sewer Pipe Inspection

Phoenix homeowners may tackle drain cleaning without the aid of NuFlow and inadvertently damage their sewer line system. Our plumbers investigate any and all causes of clogged drains. Instead of opting for store-bought cleaners, which corrosively wear down pipes, contact us today for a professional inspection.

Professional Pipe Cleaning is Easy and Affordable

Tackling drain cleaning on your own may cause complications to pools of standing water and drain clogs. NuFlow has a wide range of cleaners and tools to quickly diminish symptoms of clogged drains. We use snaking and hydro-jetting procedures to swiftly clean drains and pipes. Sewer lines extend hundreds of feet and deep clogs can only be reached through these methods. Phoenix residents will select one of these procedures given the intensity of clogs and its location in sewer systems.

Drain Snaking Unclogs Grime and Debris

It can be tricky for homeowners to rid soap scum, grease, and other substances from drains without the help of NuFlow. Once grime begins to conglomerate, it becomes firmly lodged in drains. A grade snake, which is an auger, catches the grime and breaks it up. However, it takes skill for Phoenix residents to uses an auger without assistance from our plumbers. There are a variety of snakes which differ in length to break up even deep clogs in sewer lines. Contact us today for more consultation about drain snaking and the depth of clogs in your septic system.

Hydro Jetting Packs the Punches

If drain clogs are deep and compact enough, grade snakes may not be able to break them up. NuFlow does not advise conducting drain cleaning without their help because clogs may break sewer lines if they are deep enough in pipes. The hydro jetting method expels a powerful blast of water that can breach deep clogs. Phoenix homeowners likely do not have access to this device and it can be hard to gauge the depth of clogs without a plumber.

Clogged drains can be both a serious risk to sewer lines and an easy fix. Instead of guessing the location of drain clogs, contact NuFlow if you are in need of a routine inspection.

Post-Summer Heat Pipe Inspection

September 27, 2018 in Sewer Pipe Inspection

The valley is a unique place because it is sunny and warm year-round. The summer months, specifically, can bring about scorching temperatures that residents and tourists have to endure. It is easy to point out how extreme Phoenix temperatures affect us on a physical level, but it is also important to think about how summer temperatures impact our sewer and drain systems.

When weather gets past 90 degrees, you may experience problems in your home or business’s plumbing system. Post-summer heat pipe inspection is essential for valley residents and business owners because it can reveal a variety of problems that can cause drain and sewer pipes to not function properly.

There are a few reasons your pipes need to be inspected.

Expanding pipes
Heat can cause your pipes to expand and, in some cases, completely burst. In the event of a pipe burst, full pipe replacement will be needed for the damaged pipe and any of the pipes around it.

Low water pressure or leaks

High temperatures can also impact the water pressure for your residential, commercial, or municipal property. Summer months can create shifts in the ground meaning that your pipes will shift as well and possibly in ways that they are not meant to.

Sun damage

If you have pipes that are exposed to sunlight, it is important to have them inspected because UV rays can damage pipelines. Just like other aspects of your home that are exposed to the summer sunlight, it is important to have someone come out to check your system to make sure they are not aging faster than they need to.

Monsoon Season

One unique aspect of Arizona summers are the monsoons. While monsoons do not bring about heat, they bring about lots of rain that saturates completely dry ground and does not absorb it quick enough. This often leads to drainage issues and flooding that needs to be attended to.

Lucky for you all of these things can be checked for through pipe inspections.

Pipe inspections are an easy and non-invasive process that allow for a quick assessment of the interior of your pipelines. Pipe inspections involve one of our specialized technicians coming to your property and locating the cleanout hole that provides access to your pipes. When the cleanout hole is established, a technician will insert a waterproof camera with a flexible rod attached to it into your pipeline. As the camera moves through your drains, it provides a technician with a real-time view of your pipe’s interior. The inspection will reveal any flooding, leaks, cracks, or burst pipes.

Valley customers are NuFlow Phoenix’s top priority when being proactive about their post-summer pipe health. Whether the cause is extreme heat or immense rain, your pipes should be inspected to ensure that the summer months did not do harmful damage to your pipe system.
