Any property — regardless of its size, age, or condition — can always experience maintenance issues related to its water supply. In extreme cases, an entire section of a home (such as a basement) can become flooded and experience mold growth. Therefore, it’s essential to seek assistance from a professional plumber. Fortunately, Baumbach Plumbing & Remodeling provides a wide variety of plumbing services to clients throughout Northern Virginia, including master plumbing.
What Does A Master Plumber Do?
A master plumber uses a series of tools and blueprints to install, repair, and maintain water systems on commercial or residential properties. This type of professional often works on clean water and waste systems, gas, and drainage and installs appliances and fixtures in bathrooms. A master plumber can also create a plan for a water service system.
Master plumbers typically have significantly more experience than regular plumbers since they possess business management skills. To become a master plumber, a higher level of licensing and certification (which often includes an exam) is generally needed. However, the specific requirements to become a certified master plumber vary depending on the state, as each location has unique regulations. Master plumbers also often supervise work performed by lower-level or “journeyman” plumbers.
Master Plumbing Services We Offer
A professional plumbing company will normally have the proper tools and technology to efficiently resolve many different types of plumbing issues, including sewer clogs, leaky faucets, clogged toilets, burst pipes, sump pump damage, gas line damage, and low water pressure. These types of businesses can also offer recommendations for how to prevent water-related maintenance issues in the future, as well as guarantees, which ensure that their work is not finished until you are completely satisfied with the final result.
There are many benefits to plumbing services, including improved water pressure, avoiding health issues caused by mold and mildew, lower water bills, and improvement in your property’s value (which can help if you plan to eventually sell your home). Additionally, routine maintenance of water systems (at least once a year) can make future emergency repairs less likely.
Since 1928, Baumbach Plumbing & Remodeling has provided clients in Northern Virginia with multiple high-quality plumbing services. Here are some of these services.
Backflow Testing Services
Backflow is a phenomenon characterized by water running in reverse. This can be extremely problematic for multiple reasons, including the fact that clean drinking water can become contaminated. If the water pressure in your home fluctuates, backflow from water sources such as sinks, washing machines, dishwashers, and swimming pools can occur. Backflow frequently happens due to frozen, broken, or burst pipes, leaking water mains, and higher-than-normal demand for water. Baumbach Plumbing & Remodeling can assist you with backflow by offering solutions such as air gaps, AVBs, PVBs, and RPZAs.
Burst Pipe Repair
There are several different causes of burst pipes. However, one of the most common reasons pipes can burst is freezing in the wintertime, given that pipes are more likely to expand when the temperature drops. Blockage is another common cause of pipe bursts, as well as contact between pipes and slabs in a home. Invasive tree roots can also cause pipes to burst, so it’s highly recommended that you don’t plant any trees near water sources, including sewers.
To repair a burst pipe, Baumbach Plumbing will first turn your water valve off in order to stop the flow of water. Then, we will take out the broken pipe part and replace it with a brand new section. We will finish off by turning on the valve again to ensure your water is flowing normally and that there are no leaks.
Drain Cleaning Services
Drains can become clogged for several different reasons, including hair, dirt, food waste, and mineral buildup. Baumbach Plumbing can clean your drain by using advanced tools that will cut through debris and leave it spotless. We can clean many different types of drains, including floor drains and downspout drains.
Gas Line Repair & Replacement
There are many different symptoms of exposure to natural gas. If you experience dizziness, nausea, trouble breathing, or eye and throat irritation, there is likely a gas leak on your property. Fortunately, Baumbach Plumbing can efficiently repair your gas line and replace it if necessary.
Sewer Line Repair & Replacement
Much like gas lines, sewer lines can also become clogged and contaminated to the point where they break. There are several reasons for sewer line backup and other types of sewer line damage, including tree roots, corroded pipes, extreme temperatures, and debris. Baumbach Plumbing & Remodeling will repair and replace your sewer lines by using brand-new pieces.
Toilet Repair & Replacement
Toilets can stop functioning due to reasons such as clogged pipes or a faulty flapper or flush valve. Fortunately, Baumbach Plumbing can assist you with these types of issues by providing services such as toilet repair, drain snaking, new toilet installation, and routine maintenance.
Water Heater Repair & Replacement
Water heaters can experience many different types of issues, including corrosion in the tank, power loss, leaks, faulty valves, sediment build-up, and broken thermostats. Some of these problems only require simple repairs, but in some cases, a full replacement is necessary. This is especially true for older water heaters. Baumbach Plumbing will inspect your heaters for leaks, test all of their components, and then determine the most appropriate solution, whether it’s regulating the temperature or replacing the supply tube.
Water Line Repair & Replacement
Water lines often become more vulnerable to damage due to freezing, tree roots, and mineral buildup as they age. If this happens, your home can experience lower water pressure. Fortunately, the professionals at Baumbach Plumbing can use trenchless pipe techniques to efficiently replace your water lines.
Residential Water Treatment
Water treatment systems are designed to improve a property’s water quality. These systems generally involve filtering, disinfection, and softening. Baumbach Plumbing will help improve your water quality by filtering out your water systems and thoroughly sanitizing and disinfecting them.
