You may think you know what goes on in your home, but how well do you know what’s going on under your home?
When it comes to the structure and foundation of your property, there are many parts that make up the whole. This ranges from things you can see (such as your walls or windows) all the way to the things that you can’t (like your underground plumbing).
There’s a whole system of pipes that runs through your home and underground, and when these pipes break, your home could be in trouble. That’s why the team at Jim’s Plumbing Now is here to provide tunneling and dig-up services when you need them.
Tunneling is the process of digging underground in order to access otherwise unreachable areas of your plumbing and foundation. These tunnels are typically made to be only three feet tall by three feet wide. While they may be short and narrow, the length can vary depending on how far experts need to go to get to the problem.
Tunneling is a handy process for providing slab leak repairs, but any sort of work under your home can be dangerous without the proper training. For this reason, it’s important not to attempt any tunneling services yourself. Instead, you should always turn to a team of professional plumbers — such as the ones at Jim’s Plumbing Now.
Your home’s water and gas pipes may be out of sight and out of mind for the time being, but this can quickly change when your lines become damaged. Whether the problem is from a slab leak or a cracked sewer line, you can count on a professional plumber for the help you need.
Slab leaks can be hard to detect given their location, but there are some signs that will alert you to the problem. Here are some examples:
If you notice any of these signs, it’s worth calling a professional plumber to investigate the issue. If the problem is coming from under your home, they’ll be able to provide the slab leak detection you need. From there, a solution may be found through scheduling a tunneling appointment!
If you’re having problems with a cracked sewer line, it’s important to act fast. When left unrepaired, a damaged sewage pipe can cause problems such as foul odors and unusual grass growth in your yard. If you think your sewer line is damaged, we can provide dig up services to uncover the issue. This is where a plumber is able to dig a hole in the ground in order to access and repair the problem.
