Understanding the Basics of Plumbing

Having a basic understanding of your plumbing system is essential. Knowing the inner workings of your pipes can help you properly maintain and care for your investments and will make it easier for you to become aware of the need for important repairs or professional services. At Mr. Rooter Plumbing, we offer premium residential and commercial plumbing services for homeowners and businesses in Youngstown, Ohio and surrounding metro area communities. We enjoy helping our customers find ways to improve the efficiency and longevity of their plumbing system and we want to help you do the same. Here is some basic information that can provide important insights.

Quality Fresh Water Supply

Most homes are supplied with fresh water via the city or a private well. Determining the quality of your water supply is very important for the health and wellbeing of your family. A water test can make you aware of the presence of certain metals, chemicals or minerals that are either unsafe, or negatively affect your plumbing system and appliances. A whole house water filtration system and water softener can help to remove unwanted materials from your water supply.

Dealing with Clogs and Sewage Backups

Clogs are a common plumbing concern for homeowners. Buildup from oil, grease, soap residue, food, hair and other debris can block your pipes, causing messy wastewater backups and exposure to illness causing bacteria. Routine hydro jetting and drain cleaning services can help to remove accumulated materials from the inside of your pipes, so you can revitalize your plumbing system and avoid unnecessary plumbing problems.


Freezing and melting water can create wild fluctuations in the air pressure inside your pipes. If the situation is severe enough, it can weaken your pipes and eventually cause them to burst. Proper insulation and winterizing techniques can help property owners avoid a plumbing emergency.

Water Pressure Issues

Water pressure is another frequent source of frustration for households. Low water pressure can make it very difficult to perform basic daily activities such as taking a shower or rinsing dishes. On the other hand, high water pressure can damage pipes, fixtures and expensive appliances. A water pressure regulator can fix the problem for most homeowners. If you install a pressure-reducing valve, and still experience issues, then you may have a hidden leak or pipe damage. An inspection will help make you aware of potential underlying problems.
