Issues with Outdoor Plumbing Need Quick Resolutions

You’ve got a water leak. It’s not inside, but you know it’s somewhere, because your water bill is much higher than normal.

Kay Plumbing will arrive the same day you call us to diagnose your issue, and we’ll have the tools with us to repair it once we arrive. We know how to explain the issue and what we’re going to do about it, and we can answer any questions you may have.

These can require city permits, the replacement of portions of your piping, and more for the issue to be diagnosed and correctly fixed – it’s best to call a plumber ASAP.

Septic Tank Repair and Maintenance

If sewage is backing up into your drains or leaving weird smells in and around your home, if you can’t seem to keep your plumbing free of blockages, or there’s a clear issue with the ground around your septic tank, it’s time to call a plumber. Septic tank and sewer line problems aren’t DIY projects. If you’re trying to avoid repairs on your septic tank, then it’s worth looking into what type of tank is on your property and how often you should be getting it cleaned – yearly, or only every few years – so you have a lower chance of running into unexpected problems.

Hose Bib Installation and Repair

Hoses have many uses for homeowners, but if the bib – the spout your hose connects to and which turns the water on or off – isn’t working, it’s as good as useless. Maybe you don’t even have a hose bib, but you want to add one to your home so you can enjoy the conveniences a hose can bring. In either case, the easiest solution is to call a plumbing service.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I have my septic tank cleaned?

At the very least, every three to five years. The exact frequency depends largely on the size of your tank. If you can’t find current documentation about the size or type of tank on your property, you may have to have a professional look at it for you to tell you. An easy way to guess is based on the number of rooms in your home. In South Carolina, there must be at least 250 gallons of septic tank capacity per bedroom. The smaller your septic tank, the more often you should think about cleaning it.

Does it matter what type of septic tank I have?

There are multiple types of septic tank, but the best one for your property depends on how large it is and how much usage it’ll receive, plus any personal preferences you might have. Our plumbers can help you understand the differences between tanks and help you make an informed decision if you want or need to purchase a new one.

How do I keep my pipes from freezing in winter?

There are many prevention options depending on how your plumbing is laid out. Drain water supply lines to things like your pool and sprinklers, and avoid using antifreeze unless your manufacturer’s guidelines say you should. Close indoor valves to your hose bib, too, but leave it turned on outside so as much water can drain out as possible, and so whatever remains in the pipe has space to expand. In your house, don’t adjust your thermostat between day and night, leave cabinets underneath sinks open, and if it’s going to be especially cold, turn faucets on enough to drip so water continues moving through the pipe.

How do I know if an underground pipe is leaking?

If your water bill jumps sky high after one or over a few billing periods, but your water usage hasn’t changed and there are no plumbing issues you can find inside your home, then there’s probably something happening outdoors. You might also notice changes in your water pressure, areas in your yard that are sinking, unusually wet, or which have unusually high plant growth. At the end of the day, though, to confirm and locate the leak, you’ll need a professional.
