Like any other profession, being a plumber comes with certain limitations. Now, that doesn’t mean we aren’t willing to help where we can, but there are specific situations we can’t resolve for you without the proper certification, licensing, and knowledge.

Fortunately, our team at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Memphis is multi-talented and highly trained in various uncommon plumbing installation, repair, and replacement techniques and services. Simply put, we can support you with issues involving your gas line, grease trap, slab, etc.

Find out which services (you probably thought were outside our wheelhouse) our Memphis plumbers can handle quickly, effectively, and safely.

1. Gas Line Replacement and Repair

Plumbers are skilled professionals knowledgeable in the safe and correct ways of repairing and replacing various plumbing system components. But did you know gas lines fall in that category? A plumber can assess any existing gas line and offer advice on repairing any issues. Sometimes a replacement may be necessary, in which case our Memphis plumbers are qualified to replace the line or make necessary repairs.

Emergency services may sometimes be required if a gas line issue is time sensitive and could result in serious consequences like an explosion if not handled promptly. In that case, having a licensed and experienced pro handle it should bring you peace of mind. We can diagnose the problem quickly and ensure it is solved right away.

2. Slab Leak Detection and Repair

When a slab leak has been detected in your home—believe it or not—a plumber will have the skill and knowledge to complete both slab leak detection and repair. We can locate even tiny leaks, allowing us to determine the best course of action for the potentially serious leak.

We use advanced technology to detect slab leaks, such as:

  • Thermal imaging cameras that find water spots lurking under the surface.
  • Listening devices that identify noise coming from slab leaks.
  • Pressure testing that identifies slab leaks by comparing water pressure before and after certain valves are shut down.

Once slab leaks have been found, we can also assess how best to repair them with various possible solutions, ranging from re-piping your plumbing system's segments to line repairs with epoxy injections. It is best to leave it up to an experienced professional when it comes to slab leak detection and repair.

3. Sump Pump Installation

Plumbers are often overlooked when it comes to sump pump installations, but the truth is that we can be an incredibly helpful resource for any sump pump installation needs. Instead of turning to a specialist, consider reaching out to a local licensed Memphis plumber. We have the tools and experience needed for a successful sump pump installation and the know-how and professionalism that ensures a job well done.

Plus, working with our team provides convenience and peace of mind that quality work is being completed promptly. So, next time you need sump pump installation help, our professionals are just a phone call away.

4. Water Softener Installation

When water is hard, it can cause all kinds of problems for your home water supply. To solve this, water softener installation is typically the go-to solution. Fortunately, this doesn’t require a specialist; a local plumber can easily do the trick!

Indeed, water softeners are becoming increasingly common among households today, and it’s no wonder with the many benefits they offer. From reducing soap scum buildup to increasing the water flow rate and improving water taste, properly installed water softeners can make a noticeable difference in water quality. So, before you call in a specialist for an expensive water softener installation job, consider speaking to our local team first.

5. Commercial Grease Trap Repair

Plumbers can quickly take care of the issue when commercial grease traps get clogged. This affects businesses, such as restaurants, because it can affect wastewater flow and potentially lead to larger problems. Without having to call a grease trap specialist, one of our plumbers can help to prevent these problems from escalating and creating long-term damage. If you need assistance with your commercial grease trap, don’t hesitate to call a reliable plumber for fast, professional service.
