Location: Boca Raton FL, 33496 Cause of the Problem: Broken Water Line inside condo building. Resolution: On early Wednesday morning Rhino Rooter received and emergency call for a major leak inside a residential building. Plumbers where dispatched out to the location immediately! Once they arrived they were rushed over to the main lobby where water was pouring out from the ceiling, the source was a broken main line. A main water line is what feeds water to the building, its also know as the "building main" or main water line". The plumbers set up ladders to access the area of concern. It was found that the buildings broken water line was a galvanized steel pipe. Galvanized pipe will "rust out" over time. As the pipe starts to deteriorate, the thread connections usually show the first signs of problems. Its common to see the connections of pipe to be rusted. The cause of this is due to that area becomes stripped of its zinc protective coating. The coating is to prevent it from rusting to rapidly. Galvanized pipe was used in the 1960's as a replacement to the old lead water pipes. The Rhino Rooter team was able to locate to the damaged section of pipe. The Plumbers cut out a section of the broken water line and installed a new section of copper pipe. They were able to connect the existing main water pipe to the new copper by re-threading the steel pipe and connecting with dielectric unions. The dielectric union will help prevent rusting, or the two types of pipe materials from fusing together. Once the problem was fixed the water was restored to the building and remaining system was inspected for any other leaks. If you have a water leak or see rusting on your old metal pipes call us at             (954) 651-3229 in Broward or (561) 717-8523 in Palm Beach.

Location Palm City Florida. Problem Flooded loading dock due to failed sump pump. Resolution Rhino Rooter was called out to a building with a flooded loading dock. When onsite there was over 6000 gallons flooding the parking lot. The water was up to 3 feet deep in some areas. The cause of all the was from a heavy storm that had moved in over night. A sump pump is located in one of the storm basin. The sump pump is to transfer water from the parking lot storm system to a retention pond located on the property. All excess water had to be removed in order to gain access to the pump. Rhino Rooter set up a transfer pump and hoses to remove all water from the storm system and transfer it to the pond. The removal of the water took over 5 hours. Finally the plumbers could work safely. Access was gained to the sump pump and it was found that the float switch was not working properly.  The pump was removed for inspection. Minor debris where cleaned from the bottom of the pump. when every thing was reconnected for testing it was found that the sump still was not working. The pump was removed again and the check valve for the pump was found to be stuck and not opening. The check valve was removed and cleaned. The system was re-installed and tested. All components where working properly at this point. At Rhino Rooter we are not just drain cleaners we can handle all your plumbing needs.

Location: Condo building in Hollywood FL, 33021. Problem: Broken sewer stack pipe in wall and ceiling causing smells and a leak. Resolution:  Rhino Rooter received a call to a condo building where there was a bad sewer smell emitting from a few units. There was also evidence of water staining on a bathroom ceiling of a vacant unit. When the plumbers were onsite to investigate the unpleasant aroma, they went from unit to unit to insure that nothing was being over looked and that is when the water staining was found. The ceiling was full of moisture and appeared to have been leaking for sometime. A hole was cut in the ceiling and wall to find a broken sewer stack that was cracked between floors. The plumbers had to remove some fixtures to access the sewer stack via the wall. Every time a sink or shower was being used from the floors above, sewer water would leak from the cracked stack into the wall and onto the ceiling. The section of damaged pipe was cast iron which had become brittle and split on the vertical section which is common as the cast iron pipe life expectancy is only about 40-45 years before problems will occur. Acid based drain opening chemicals sold in home improvement stores will shorten the life of cast iron and may even cause premature rotting of the metal pipe. The cast iron cracked stack was cut out and removed. A new section of cast iron was installed to meet the Florida Plumbing Code. The new cast iron pipe was able to be connected to the existing section and fixtures. The system was tested and all leaks and odors where gone. If you are showing signs of moisture on walls, ceiling, or cabinets you may have a leak, which if not treated and repaired quickly may develop mold which is very dangerous to your health and maybe come very costly to remove. If your suspicious of a...
