Commercial Clogged Sewer line repair in Coeur d’ Alene

Today we were called out at High Point Medical in Cd’a for a clogged sewer line on a commercial building that multiple plumbing companies tried to unclog but were not successful. Upon diagnosis, we found the main backwater valve was clogged with frozen toilet paper and the valve was frozen shut. We tried to remove the valve with standard tools and were not successful, so we brought out our special proprietary equipment to thaw out 5 feet down enabling us to easily unclog the drain line and remove the previously frozen in backwater valve for inspection. We also found the valve needed replacing. We quickly replaced the valve and their plumbing was back to normal.

leaky pipes

Leaky Pipe fix Post Falls, ID

We were called out to a Post Falls home on the Spokane river that flooded because of improperly installed plumbing pipes. We diagnosed the problem as poor workmanship that caused the solder joint to fail. We also found piping that was installed incorrectly causing electrolysis, and upon close examination we found severe erosion of the copper piping. We removed the piping that was causing the electrolysis and we removed the leaking section of pipe. We also removed all of the shark bite fittings that have been proven to have a high rate of failure, causing countless homes to experience severe flooding.
