What’s Considered a Plumbing Emergency?
A plumbing emergency is generally any situation that can damage your home or your health. In many cases, like with frozen or burst pipes, these issues can happen when we least expect them. Additionally, they can often go undiagnosed, like in the case of a hidden gas leak, which is just about the most dangerous situation you can deal with in your home.
When it deals with water, your major concern will be damage to your home and loss in functionality. This can be something as simple as a fixture that doesn’t work or as complex as no water flow in your home.
If the plumbing emergency is related to your gas lines, be on the lookout for appliances that are not working properly, higher than usual utilities, or any health changes like lightheadedness or nausea. The most important part of dealing with an emergency plumbing repair is getting help quickly. The faster you get a response in your home, the better chances any damage can be mitigated.
Tips for Preventing Blocked Drains
Clogged drains are one of the most common residential plumbing issues you can deal with - they’re also the most preventable. One easy way to prevent clogs in the bathroom is to install a hair trap in your tub. Similarly, adding a strainer to your sink can also prevent clogs in your kitchen. Many times, clogged drains stem from throwing things you shouldn't into your plumbing. This can include excess toilet paper, cooking grease, or cat litter - all of which can create a severe blockage in your plumbing.
If you’re dealing with these issues in your home, it’s always important to avoid throwing chemical cleaners down the drain. Not only do they often fail to remove the blockage, but also they can harm your pipes. At Valley Plumbing and Drain Cleaning, our expertise is in the name. We offer top-rated drain cleaning services to all our customers in and around the Woods Cross area.
Signs Your Water Heater Needs Replacing
You rely on your water heater for your indoor comfort. Whether it’s taking a hot shower in the morning or cleaning off greasy dishes, you need a steady and reliable supply of hot water. Some common signs your water heater needs replacements include:
- High energy costs
- Fluctuating water temperatures
- Rust colored or dirty water
- Low water pressure
- Small water leaks
For most of these issues, you’ll easily be able to notice them through daily use. While some water heater repairs can get your system back up and running, in some instances a complete replacement may be needed to get your home back in working order.

Aaron called to let me know he was on his way. He and Jules arrived shortly after that. It was decided due to the age of my water heater to replace it. It took about 2 hrs and he cleaned up any mess they made. Aaron explained my bill and was courteous the whole time here.

Drain cleaning; ran the jetter down the kitchen sink as far as we could go, approx 30 feet. Ran water in the sink and it backed up again. We then ran the jetter down the clean out in the basement up to 50 feet long too clear that portion. We the had too auger out the kitchen sink and the laundry floor drain and ran the jetter down the kitchen 3 times too ensure line is clear. Ran the disposal with sink full of water, working great. We then ran the jetter down the laundry stand pipe and couldnâ€™t get it past the p-trap, we then ran the jetter down the floor drain in the laundry room up too 50 feet 3-4 times. Everything is draining great. We then sold 3 pack of Total C drain treatment product.
When I first arrive The tenant showed me in and showed me her downstairs floor drain was completely backed up and then tested if it was the main. Once I tested the kitchen line it backed up immediately I then gave an estimate to clear the kitchen line. Rhinos property approved over the phone. I then augured the kitchen line and found it excessive grease in line I went out the 75 feet and cleared the floor drain and then ran about 10 minutes of hot water down the kitchen line. I then ran six hot buckets down the floor drain it is slow draining but is working fine. It looks like the floor drain was not backing up with as much water as I ran down. we cannot warranty this drain cleaning due to excessive grease. When I pulled back my auger line I also found hair in line could be from laundry line.

The pop-up assembly in the upstairs hall bath has broken and needs to be replaced. We will replace it with a brushed nickel pop-up assembly, making the necessary drain connections under the sink. The water softener in the basement is not pulling brine water properly. Based on the advise of the manufacturer, we will disassemble the injector on top of the softener, clean it and inspect for any condition issues. We will reassemble the softener and check it for proper operation. We will also replace the water filters under the sink as a courtesy to the customer. The filters are already on-site and provided by the customer. Results: The installation of the drain went well. We cleaned the inside of the injector on the softener, as the passageway was obstructed by some debris. We have the softener in regeneration and it is pulling the brine water from the tank as it should. We attempted to replace the filters on the filtration system under the kitchen sink but they are too seized to rem
