Prevent Freezing Sewer Lines.

This is an absolute must in the frigid climes of Central Illinois in the winter.  We have a long way to go before spring has sprung.  As a Morton area home owner, you need to take precautions.  One of the most overlooked areas is your plumbing and sewer system.  A frozen sewer line may not be common, but it can be devastating.

What are some of the causes of freezing sewer lines?

1.  Faulty installation around the pipes
2.  When the temperature drops precipitously overnight
3.  Lower water flow through an exposed drain
4.  A malfunction of your thermostat

Try to prevent a frozen sewer line if you can, but if the problem rears its ugly head on your property this winter remember Dave Bailey Plumbing.  Dave and his crew handle all plumbing problems both large and small in the area around Morton, East Peoria, and Pekin.  Call Dave Bailey Plumbing anytime at (309) 265-6788.

Frozen Gas Lines.

That sounds ominous, doesn’t it?  We tend to see more gas leaks in the winter because of the extensive freezing and thawing of the ground in Central Illinois.  It is also more difficult to excavate our home’s pipes when the area around them is frozen and, the obvious, it is harder to work when the weather is harsh.

The danger occurs when natural gas leaks because it is flammable, which means that if there's a flame or even a spark in the area of a leak, it could cause a fire or explosion.  A gas leak can happen if a gas pipe is damaged, like if someone is digging a hole and accidentally breaks an underground gas line.

We are equal to the task of fixing leaking gas pipes in any weather that hits the Pekin, East Peoria, and surrounding areas of Morton Illinois.  We are Dave Bailey Plumbing.  For years, we have provided the solution to any and all plumbing problems that occur in all seasons throughout Central Illinois.  Just give us a call at (309) 265-6788.
