When your home’s sewer line is in need of repairs, it is important to fix the problem right away. If you are looking for a quick and cost-effective way to repair your sewer line, you may want to consider trenchless sewer repairs. Trenchless sewer repairs will fix your sewer line problem at the source, without causing damage to your landscaping or yard. Here is an overview of some of the benefits of trenchless sewer repairs:
During a trenchless sewer repair procedure, a technician will place a lining inside your existing sewer pipes. This lining will offer durable and long-lasting protection for your sewer system. If you are seeking a sewer repair method that will last for years to come, trenchless repairs may be the right choice for your home.
Low Impact on Your Yard
The procedure required for a trenchless repair will have a low level of impact on your yard. During a conventional sewer repair procedure, it is often necessary to excavate large areas of a backyard to uncover and remove old pipes before placing new lines. In contrast, trenchless repairs only require a small hole. If preserving your existing landscaping is important to you, you may want to seek out trenchless repairs.
Trenchless sewer repair is a cost-effective choice for your home sewer repair needs. When you choose trenchless repairs, you will be able to mend a large area of pipe without major digging or excavating. Plus, your plumbers won’t need to spend as much time or use as many materials to repair the sewer line, which lowers the cost to you. Trenchless repairs will give you fantastic performance at a great value for years to come.

During periods of heavy rainfall in Seattle, basements and other low-lying places in the home can flood with rainwater. Along with causing property damage, flooding can promote mold growth and other serious problems. Fortunately, there is a simple device that can stop this from happening: the sump pump. Sump pumps are normally installed in the basement in an area called a sump pit. When water comes into the basement, it enters through drains and goes into the sump pit. Afterwards, the sump pump sucks up the water and moves it away from the house, stopping flooding. Generally, sump pumps are powered by electricity and are self-activating, although manual models are also available.
If you have experienced flooding and are interested in getting a sump pump for your Seattle home, call O’Neill Plumbing. We provide 24-hour services, and our experienced plumbers can help you with any plumbing emergency. Set up an appointment with one of our plumbers today by calling (206) 395-2352.

Plumbing problems often occur during the colder winter months. To avoid having to make costly plumbing repairs this winter, follow these simple tips for preparing your home’s plumbing or talk to a local Seattle plumber:
Inspect Sump Pump
Sump pumps are generally very effective at removing water from flood-prone areas of the home, such as the basement. In the winter, sump pump plumbing lines can freeze and cause a sump pump to overwork and break down. To avoid this problem, have a professional plumber inspect and perform maintenance on your sump pump before the weather gets colder.
Don’t Leave Garage Door Open
Do you have important plumbing fixtures, such as a water softener or water heater, in your garage? If so, one of the easiest ways you can protect them during the winter months is to keep the garage door closed as much as you can. This will prevent cold air from coming into your home and causing serious damage to your appliances.
Wrap Outdoor Pipes
When the temperature outside drops, outdoor faucets can burst and cause severe flooding. The best way to prevent this problem from happening is to wrap any exposed pipes with foam or fiberglass insulation. As an additional safety precaution, let water trickle down through all exterior faucets to keep pipes from freezing and bursting.
Call a Plumber
After you have checked your home’s plumbing, it is always a good idea to call a qualified plumber to perform a professional inspection. In addition to making required repairs, a plumber will make sure that your home’s plumbing is ready to handle the cold winter weather. Having this assurance will give you peace of mind.
If you would like to have your home’s plumbing system inspected before the winter months, make an appointment with O’Neill Plumbing.

Over time, all water heaters start having problems. When a water heater stops working properly, homeowners are usually not sure if they should have the appliance fixed or get a new one. Here are some helpful tips on deciding whether to repair or replace your water heater:
Check for Leaks
If your water heater is leaking, it is recommended that you replace, instead of attempt to repair, the appliance. This is because water heater leaks are typically caused by corrosion, which is an issue that a plumber cannot adequately fix. Getting a brand-new water heater will ensure that a serious plumbing leak does not occur in your home and cause costly property damage.
Consider Extent of Repairs
Before deciding whether or not you should repair or replace your water heater, think about what components have to be fixed. If only minor repairs need to be made, you should probably have the unit repaired by an experienced plumber, which won’t cost very much money. However, if you need to replace the tank or have other major repairs done, it is much more cost effective to purchase a new water heating system.
Think About Additional Costs
Getting a new water heater can come with additional costs. For example, when you purchase a new heater, you may also have to pay for a new heater mount, venting system, and supply pipes, among other parts. If you have money set aside, you should definitely think about replacing your heater. If you do not, it’s better to hire a plumber who can make the repairs you need.
