    Possible Pipe Damage Caused by Flooding

    Floods and heavy rains can cause the following problems with your pipes:

    Plumbing Problems Due to Heavy Rain: What is Backdrafting?

    It looks like it’s going to be a rainy week in Middletown. We’ve talked about the importance of a sump pump during rainy seasons to keep your basement dry, and that if you notice your sump pump acting strange you should call us. But there are also some other plumbing problems that can happen in stormy weather that can affect your plumbing system’s health and your family’s safety.

    When an excessive amount of water backs up your sewer system, it can cause backdrafting in your home.  It’s imperative that you find out how to prevent this from happening and how to handle it if it does in order to keep your family safe.

    What is Backdrafting?

    Appliances such as boilers and water heaters are designed to release harmful byproducts such as carbon monoxide and explosive methane gases through a flue where they safely exit the home. But when excessive rain water backs up your drain system, it can cause negative air pressure inside the home to draw in these dangerous gases. If this happens in your home, you’ll notice a sewer odor in your home. It’s important to identify where negative air pressure could be coming from, particularly during rain, sewer, or storm drain flooding. Some possibilities could be:

    How Can Putman Plumbing Fix My Backdrafting Problem?

    If you notice a sewer-like smell after heavy rains, be sure to call us for professional plumbing help.

We may need to find a safer place to install your water heater, clear drains, or replace plumbing vents and exhaust fans.

    Low water pressure? We can help.

    Is it taking forever to rinse the shampoo off of your dog in the bathtub? Do your dishes still feel a little soapy after the dishwasher is done? There may be a problem with your water pressure. This could be happening due to an issue with your plumbing system, so it’s worth it to let your Frederick County know your concerns. Here are just a few possibilities:

    Corroded Pipes

    Steel or galvanized pipes may start to corrode which can block water from flowing through them as strongly as it should. This is a pretty big issue but we can definitely fix it. By taking out the old pipes and installing a clean, clear piping system, you’ll be pleased with how much better your water pressure gets.

    Leaks in the Plumbing System

    When there’s something such as a crack in a pipe that causes water to leak out before it gets to its destination, you’ll have low water pressure. You may also notice high water bills since extra water is being used. We can easily test your meter and if we see a spike in water usage, we’ll find the leak and fix it.

    Hard Water

    Minerals left behind by hard water will cling to your pipes and cause low water pressure. We can recommend a water softener to help solve this problem.

    Frederick County Water Problems

    When there’s a malfunction in municipal water systems, you’ll notice water pressure problems. A city pipe may have broken or they may be installing new piping somewhere. Talk to neighbors to find out if you’re the only one experiencing water pressure problems. If you aren’t, hopefully the city is working on it and they’ll fix it soon. If you are, call a plumber.

    Putman Plumbing Can Restore Your Water Pressure

    To enjoy your shower again and get cleaner dishes, give us a call. We’ve helped thousands of Frederick County homeowners with water pressure problems, and we can help you too!
