Residential Plumbing Services

The need for residential plumbing services in Charlotte can occur for a number of reasons. The professional plumbers at Mr. Rooter can tackle jobs large and small. From a kitchen sink leak to trenchless sewer repair services, our team is trained and equipped to handle the many tasks that can arise from a problematic system.

Some of the most common residential plumbing services in Charlotte include:

Charlotte Plumbing Repair

At the moment when you know something is amiss with your home’s plumbing system, but you can’t quite discover the issue, Mr. Rooter's plumbing repair services are available. Whether you’re hearing running water when all fixtures are turned off or the kitchen disposal makes a noise but doesn’t do anything, our Charlotte plumbers can make the repair.

Clogged Drains Cleaning & Repair

Clogged drains are more than a nuisance. If not handled immediately, a small clog can quickly begin to affect numerous parts of your plumbing. A slow-releasing drain can leave residue in your sink or tub, cause sewage odors, and easily grow into a complete blockage if not cleared.

HydroScrub Jetting

HydroScrubJetting is the environmentally safe way Mr. Rooter cleans your drains. The jetting technology uses water pressure and volume to clear out clogs and debris from household pipes. Compared to conventional snaking methods, HydroScrub is far superior and yields optimal results. It also helps ensure hair, soap residue, oil buildup, mineral deposits, and other debris are effectively removed from your pipes.

Leaky Pipes & Pipe Repair Services

Leaks are a common Charlotte pipe repair need. The frightening thing about leaking pipes is that they can go undetected for quite some time, especially if it’s a small leak. Constant running water or dripping can cause costly damage and result in expensive plumbing repairs.

Frozen pipes can cause unexpected damage and costly repairs. If frozen pipes burst, they can become an extremely expensive home disaster. Just one burst pipe in a home running at four to eight gallons a minute can do tens of thousands of dollars in damage. Bursts can occur when the water cools several degrees below freezing in the pipe, causing ice to form. The pressure can split the pipe and lead to eventual water damage once the water is thawed in the pipe.

However, if you know your water heater is at the end of its life, replacing the unit is the best step to take.

Sewer Backup Services

Pipes in the Charlotte area can be hindered by tree roots, debris, and other issues. If not remedied quickly, those problems can wreak havoc on your plumbing system. The plumbing experts with Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Charlotte can repair your septic and sewer system that’s been damaged by environmental or man-made issues. Our skilled plumbing professionals have repaired and re-piped all types of plumbing systems to accommodate many different property layouts.

Sewer Line Repair Services

Extensive and pricey damage can emerge from cracked sewer pipes. Your property, home’s foundation, and landscaping can fall victim to a water or sewage leak. More importantly, your family’s health could be placed at risk if the sewage leak is collecting in your yard or home. Mr. Rooter Plumbing is your local source for quality sewer repair and replacement at any time.

Sewer line damage isn’t always caused by significant events. Damage can occur over time, at a slow rate, but still, have costly effects on your plumbing.

Some of the most common reasons for sewer line damage include:

  • Backup from a city’s sewer line
  • The buildup of hair, debris, grease, sludge, oil, toilet paper, etc.
  • Earthquakes, nearby earth movement, heavy construction nearby, etc.
  • Poor maintenance
  • Poor sewer pipe layout, design, and/or installation
  • The regular ground freezes / thaws
  • Tree roots infiltrating sewer pipe holes/joints
  • Wear and tear from aging

No pipe material is excluded from these risks. Routine plumbing maintenance is the best way to detect and prevent these issues.

Home Plumbing FAQ

If your toilet is getting clogged fairly often, that could be a sign that your main sewer line needs to be cleared. You can test it by flushing your toilet up to 6 times in a row consistently. If your toilet blocks up after that, you probably have a problem with your main line.

Yellow water is generally caused by rust – it is normal for iron and oxygen to be found in water, but when combined in larger quantities they can make your faucet and tub water appear yellow. If your water is yellow due to iron, it is usually safe to drink. But if it tastes unpleasant, you can contact a plumbing company to correct it.

Hard water contains high concentrations of dissolved minerals, such as magnesium and calcium. In its pure form, water is naturally soft and does not contain these minerals. Hard water is healthy for drinking but can wear down clothes, appliances, and more.

If a black ring is forming around the base of your toilet, that generally means that the wax ring that seals the toilet to the floor is leaking. The black ring is black bacteria, sewage, or mold; so if you notice it around your toilet you should replace your wax ring as soon as you can.

Here are some ways you can test if your toilet leaks:

  • Open your toilet tank and drop in some food coloring and wait 15 to 20 minutes. When you return, don’t check the toilet tank – instead, investigate the bowl. If you see color in your toilet bowl, your toilet is leaking.
  • You can also try to see the leak in the bowl. If water is trickling down the sides of the bowl if the toilet hasn’t recently been flushed, that might be the leak.
  • If you still aren’t sure, turn off the water to the suspect toilet before you go to sleep. In the morning, check the water level in the tank. If the water level is low, you could have some faulty tank parts that are causing the leak.

Several things could be causing your faucet to make sounds, including a water hammer. When a water valve is quickly shut off, the water in the pipes abruptly stops and can cause the pipe to band against surrounding wood or structure if your pipes are loose.

It is also possible that your air chambers are damaged, which happens if they are filled with water. Usually, air chambers cushion the shock of a quickly turned-off faucet, but if they are broken, they would make sounds.

Another source of sound is that your water pressure is too high. Your water pressure shouldn’t be over 80 psi.

If water comes out of your faucet while you are showering, that could indicate that something is wrong with your diverter. The diverter is what changes the direction of the water from the faucet up to your shower head.

To fix this you will need to disassemble the diverter and clean it out to make sure debris isn’t causing the malfunction. You can also replace your diverter with a new one if it is damaged.

The white build-up around your faucet is mineral deposits. To remove mineral deposits, take a plastic bag and pour 1 cup of vinegar in it. Tie the bag around your faucet and leave it there overnight. In the morning, take an old toothbrush or other scrubbing instrument and try to brush some of the white buildups off.
