When seeing underground seems difficult, our expert services will pull-off their superhero ability and see underground for you. A video camera inspection is exactly what it sounds like. This machine looks like a cabling machine with a camera that sends video footage in real time to the screen located with the serviceman. As the serviceman begins to send the camera down the line, the camera will reveal what the pipe looks like, what kind of pipe you have underground, where the blockages are occurring, cracks, and much more. Our state of the art technology has allowed our company to move forward into the future by providing our customers with the video of the scope of work completed. This helps Arizona Plumbing Services to show you what you are dealing with. We understand you may not understand the plumbing jargon, but seeing the video with the jargon will educate and allow you to be empowered by any of those other companies that may try to take advantage of your lack of plumbing knowledge. It is important to understand not all lines are going to reveal a problem. However, you can trust Arizona Plumbing Services expert plumbers will have a resolution to your troubles. Remember, the camera inspection is your next best step if you are having a continued problem.
Cleanouts are truly a plumber’s best friend when clearing a drain. Properties without proper cleanouts usually means having an owner or property manager with headaches. Installing your cleanouts is not only a headache cure for you, but when it comes to clearing a drain it helps our expert plumbers quickly get the job done.
There are different types of cleanouts. Most commonly are Directional and Bi-directional.
1. Bi-directional cleanout: most commonly used and wanted by plumbing experts. They provide a sweep type function for the cable to run under the building or away from the building without hang-ups getting your cable to go a certain direction.
2. Directional cleanout: a single pipe connecting to the mainline. This can often be a problem because it does not always offer a sweep in either direction. It is, for the most part a “TEE”, which means your cable will go straight down to the mainline and the technician will need to jimmy and jolly the cable until it finally goes the direction he wants it to go.

Hydro-vac trucks can come in various sizes, they continue to work the same way. In the basic of terms, a hydro-vac truck allows for excavating without the mess a tractor would make. Hydro excavation is designed to be a non-mechanical, non-destructive process that uses pressurized water and industrial strength vacuum to simultaneously excavate and evacuate soil. As hydro excavation safely breaks up soil, the soil and water slurry are conveyed by vacuum to a debris tank. Once tank is full, it is relocated to a landfill.
An isolation valve is a valve in a water/gas system that stops the flow of process media to a given location, usually for maintenance or safety purposes. Isolation valves are what we like to call “peacemakers”. In the midst of a water or gas leak on your property, having an isolation valve can save you from damages costing in the tens of thousands of dollars. Different types of isolation valves are a hose bib, angle stops (found under your sinks or toilets), ball valves and the no longer recommended to use, gate valves.
With our state-of-the-art equipment, you can trust Arizona Plumbing will find your leak. Leak and/or line locating is an art and can take time. Situations such as chiller systems and lines 6+ feet in depth or more, insulated pipes and PVC pipes can hinder the exact location of a line or leak.
The good and the bad, if we can’t find it, we believe other companies will have the same luck. Arizona Plumbing Services trusts in our dependability to meet our customers’ needs by training our technicians to be the best fit to meet and go above any expectations placed before us.
Backups are any clogged drain that would require a snake, hydro jetting or pipe removal to be repaired, cleared or otherwise back in normal working conditions.
Each of our trucks are supplied with medium and large cables for snaking a kitchen sink drain (1½ inch) to mainline drains (up to 10 inch).
Preventions you can do to try and avoid backups are by not flushing wipes, paper towels and other solid materials not meant for the sewer. Cooking grease, paint and other “liquid” materials that are hazardous and belong in a “waste yard” should also be avoided. Be aware of your kids. Children typically get curious and flush little dolls, toy cars, rubber duckies and much more. The fun toilet swirl takes the toy to its final plunge, at the end of the day the toilet is the only one having a good time.

Polyvinyl chloride, is commonly abbreviated as PVC. It is the world’s third-most widely produced synthetic plastic polymer, after polyethylene and polypropylene. PVC comes in two basic forms: rigid (occasionally abbreviated as RPVC) and flexible.
PVC comes in different types of grades. Schedule 40 and Schedule 80 are the 2 most popular grades used in this industry. Understanding which one to use is very important when it comes to Arizona Codes for the Registrar of Contractors. You can trust Arizona Plumbing Services follows coding to the “T”. We believe a job well done is a job done well. There are no short cuts or trying to go cheap to save some bucks when our customers rely on us to do things right the first time.
CPVC or Chlorinated polyvinyl chloride is a thermoplastic produced by chlorination of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin which is significantly more flexible and can withstand higher temperatures than standard PVC. Uses include hot and cold-water pipes, and industrial liquid handling. CPVC is Arizona’s code for most water systems with hot water. Call today and we can have one of our experts get you up to code.
Re-routing a water, gas or sewer line is completed when repairing a line is not the best option in the lines current location. Often this occurs when tree roots impede sewer or water lines that are leaking under a slab. In this case, the best conclusion is to reroute instead of tearing up concrete, carpet, tile and creating another financial burden with those costs of replacements as well.
Rerouting is typically a little bit costlier than a direct repair from a slab leak. However, the incurring cost from tile, paint, drywall, carpet, etc., can add up and become more of a burden with time and money. You can trust that if our serviceman recommends you reroute your sewer, gas or water line, it is in the best interest of everyone involved for this to be accepted.
A shower valve performs two basic functions, it controls the temperature and the flow of the water from your shower/tub spout. The temperature is controlled by mixing hot and cold water from your hot and cold-water supplies in different proportions, and generally has a single control to do this with: though there are also two and three handled valves as well.
The most common valves used today are presumably MOEN and Delta. Our expert plumbers are familiar with all valves and here at Arizona Plumbing Services; for the most part, will use single handle MOEN Posi-Temp valves as replacements if possible.

Water heating is a thermodynamic process which uses an energy source (typically by gas or electric) to heat water above its initial temperature. Primarily, water heaters are needed for cooking, cleaning, bathing, and space heating. In industry, hot water and water heated to steam have many uses.
These vessels are used to produce hot water, as well as storing it. In heavy usage situations, the water heater cannot keep up with the amount of water being used. This cools the water and can turn a nice shower experience into the polar bear club. It is important to size your tank correctly with the amount of water used per day.

PEX, Copper, Galvanized and PVC or CPVC are the most common water pipes used in the industry today.
PEX piping is the new fad with a 25-year warranty, there is only one hitch to the warranty. PEX must be installed by a “Certified PEX Installer”. Our experts are certified, and it is required by Arizona Plumbing Services for our serviceman to continue their certification and education. This way they understand the importance with the proper way to install PEX piping.
Galvanized is the piping of the past. Easily corroded and breakable, your galvanized pipes cannot get replaced soon enough. Galvanization is the process of applying a protective zinc coating to steel or iron, to prevent rusting. The zinc acts as a magnet to minerals in water and over time the minerals begin to take over your pipes, leaving you with less pipe for your water to run through.
