Leaking Pipes – What to Do?
Plumbers can serve us in many ways. Leaky pipes in your residential or commercial property must be repaired immediately. While you are waiting for the plumbers to arrive, there are a few things you can do to reduce the risk of further damage from the water.
If you can hear the sound of the water, follow it to its source. If there is already a water stain, it may mean there is a leak in a section of the pipe. The wall stain is likely to be below the actual location of the leak, so we will probably need to remove part of the wall in order to find it.
Turn off the water immediately, either at the fixture shutoff valve or the main shutoff valve if the leak is a major one. This will keep your home or office from being flooded. Remember that it is always best to call in a professional plumber, rather than attempting to do it yourself and causing additional damage. We are here to serve all of your plumbing needs.
What can cause a drain to be clogged in your home or commercial building? A clogged drain in your bathroom, whether it is a clogged shower head, bathroom sink drain, or toilet, can ruin your day. Many times these stubborn clogs are caused by hair buildup in the drains. Sometimes you can get enough hair out of the clogged drain yourself, but to do a thorough job and to prevent further problems, it is best to call your plumber.
Here at Plumbing El Paso Texas, we will send our repairmen out quickly. Drain cleaning El Paso team will take care of your problems. They will make a full assessment of your situation, clear out any obstructions from your sink, toilet, or shower, and get your water flowing again quickly. Trying to do this yourself with wire coat hangars and plungers will take your time, may cause further damage, and you will still continue to have a bathroom drainage problem.
Your home’s sewer and drain lines have probably been there since your home was built. With the average age of a home in Texas currently at 43 years old, it is just a matter of time before your sewer line breaks.
When a sewer line breaks, the leaking sewage is a hotbed of disease, hazardous chemicals, and rat infestation. You must have it repaired immediately, and call us.
Our plumbers El Paso tx helped tons of residents.
The older houses often have combination sewers which collect both sewage and stormwater. The stormwater can cause the system to overflow, releasing raw sewage into local waterways. Breaks in sewer lines commonly occur at the connection to the branch lateral at the curb line, or at the transition point from cast iron at the house to clay or cement pipe, located about five feet from your home. Property owners are responsible for breaks between the house and the curb, including the sidewalk.
Water Heater Repair
Even though California is not cold, we still use heaters of various forms throughout the home.

Broken or ineffective water heaters is a familiar issue. If you tell us there’s a fault or your water heater is broken, we will diagnose and repair it for you. At Riverside Plumbing we are experts in fixing hot water services of all types. Sometimes older units might need replacement. So if you are looking for a water heater repair in El Paso, call us.
Many people are tempted to take on the job of installing a toilet when their old one needs to be replaced. Here are 7 reasons why you may want to call El Paso Plumber to do it for you:
- You will want to make sure you are not violating or ignoring any local code restrictions
- You must make sure to properly align tubing into fittings or stop valves – forcing the nut onto the compression ring at an incorrect angle will cause a leak
- An air gap filling must be installed for fixtures
- The pipes used must be the correct size
- A brass or dielectric fitting must be attached to connect copper to galvanized pipes
- Threaded joints need PTFE tape or pipe compund
You must run the outside hose valve and flush all toilets after installation to bleed the dirt and air from the lines when you turn the water back on – otherwise, the debris will cause problems in your sink faucets and other plumbing fixtures.
Call El Paso Plumbing and we will do a complete and thorough inspection of your home or commercial building’s plumbing system while we are installing your toilet. We serve the entire area.
Water Conservation – Save Money!
As plumbers in El Paso, we have our work cut out for us. Everything we do involves the use of water, yet this city is located in the middle of a desert. We are also interested in and concerned with water conservation, so generally we spend some time educating our clients about making repairs or changes to their residential or commercial plumbing systems.
One area where we are finding this to be important is when it comes to the installation and use of low flush toilets. The toilets that were used up until about ten years ago required about seven gallons of water each time you flushed. If you add this amount of water up over a period of weeks and months, you can see that quite a bit of water is wasted with each flush.
During the 1990’s people in Texas became more concerned with water conservation. A law was even passed, requiring homeowners to install low flush toilets whenever they sold their property. Many people jumped on the bandwagon to be the first to install these new toilets, while others rebelled against it.
The low flush toilets only need 1.6 gallons of water to flush. This satisfied the new law, but did not address the problem of disposing of the wastewater efficiently. However, many homeowners refused to give up their old toilets. You should not wait too long and call now! We will help you with your plumbing problems, no matter the issue is.
