How Much Do Water Heaters Cost?

The answer to this question depends entirely on what type of water heater you choose to install. If you get a traditional tank storage heater, the cost will be lower, both for the unit and the installation or replacement. A tankless water heater installation will cost more upfront, as these models incorporate newer technology and are more difficult to install.

However, over time, the cost difference between storage water heaters and tankless ones may even out. Tankless water heaters cost less on average to run and maintain, as they are more energy efficient. They also tend to outlast traditional water heaters by about five to ten years.

You’ll also want to consider reviews of the model you plan to install, as well as advice from a professional plumber in Rocky Mount. This is the only way to discover whether your water heater is likely to require frequent repairs or whether the model is more reliable. The team at Roberson’s Plumbing and Septic regularly installs, replaces, and repairs water heaters, so we will be able to give you an accurate cost estimate for your service.

Why Should I Get My Drains Cleaned?

You may think you don’t need routine drain cleaning if you don’t notice a problem with your drains. However, issues can creep up slowly, especially if you become accustomed to poor drain functionality. While there are certainly occasions when drains suddenly become clogged, it is more common that debris builds up over time, slowing down your drains and increasing the risk of problems like burst pipes and backed-up sewer lines.

Roberson’s Plumbing and Septic has the solution you need for clean drains. Our plumbers in Rocky Mount will assess the problem in your home and then suggest a schedule for ongoing drain cleaning that makes sense, typically once every few years. We use updated technology, like hydro jetting, to achieve the most effective cleaning and protect your pipes from damage for years to come.

When Do I Need to Repair a Sewer Line?

Sewer lines require repair, cleaning, or possibly even replacement when you notice any of the following:

If you notice any of the above, call the team at Roberson’s Plumbing and Septic at (252) 618-1668. We will respond quickly to provide you with an appropriate solution to your sewer line problem.

Do I Really Need a Sump Pump?

The short answer here is yes. Rocky Mount has areas that are extremely likely to flood in the coming years. With our location relatively close to the Atlantic Ocean, making us susceptible to hurricanes and tropical storms, we have an ongoing risk of weather-related flooding. The presence of the Tar River running through the city also presents a flood risk.

A sump pump is part of a larger strategy to protect your home from natural disasters. It pumps water out of the lowest level of your house, as well as the surrounding soil, saving your basement or crawl space from flooding. The Rocky Mount plumbers at Roberson’s can perform sump pump installations and repairs.

How Does Leak Detection Work?

Plumbers use leak detection to identify small holes, cracks, and leaks in your pipes. There are a few different methods of leak detection, all of which reduce the impact on your property. For example, instead of demolishing a part of your wall just to examine a pipe, a technician will insert a camera into a drain, use acoustic technology to listen for running water in the walls, or apply thermal imaging to detect hot water leaks. Once a leak is detected, the professionals can get to work fixing it.

What Are the Most Common Piping Materials?

When the Rocky Mount plumbers at Roberson’s offer repiping services, we often use copper or PEX piping. Some homes in the area are older, with the average home being built in the ‘70s or ‘80s, and may not use updated materials for plumbing pipes. In these cases, or when pipes corrode, constantly leak, or become otherwise unreliable, it is important to replace them with updated materials built to stand the test of time. This process is called repiping.

How Do I Request a Septic Inspection?

Call Roberson’s Plumbing and Septic at (252) 618-1668 to schedule a septic inspection! Our septic services in Rocky Mount include locating your septic tank and thorough, involved septic inspections. Whether you’re approaching us because your septic tank hasn’t been checked in a long time or you’re planning on selling your home, we’re happy to lend our expertise to your needs.

What is the Difference Between Septic Pumping and Septic Cleaning?

Both pumping and cleaning are critical Rocky Mount septic services offered by Roberson’s Plumbing and Septic. Here’s the difference between the two:

Septic Pumping

This is a routine service recommended every three to five years, although you should consult with a professional to determine a schedule for your unique needs. It removes the top layer of scum from the tank, as well as some liquid and suspended solids. It is necessary to maintain a functional septic system.

Septic Cleaning

Septic cleaning is a often response to a major problem with your septic system, rather than a routine service. While we use most of the same technology to complete a septic cleaning service, our team will remove all of the contents of your septic tank, rather than just the layer at the top.

Why Do I Need a Professional to Install a Septic Tank?

In Rocky Mount, septic services from a professional may seem like a luxury, and you may be tempted to do some projects yourself. We highly recommend you do not attempt to install a septic tank on your own. A septic tank has multiple components that must be properly attached, leveled, and tested. Excavation using heavy-duty digging equipment is required, and professional septic technicians understand how to ensure processes like this do not ruin your existing landscaping.
