The Brentwood Rd. Post Office in D.C. needed repairs made to their boiler system. One of the circulating pumps was leaking while the other had a bad motor.
This chimney in NW D.C. has a terra cotta liner that has deteriorated and collapsed. The cost to reline it would be very high due to it's height and difficulty to access from the slate roof. In addition to the chimney problems the heat exchanger in the 23 year old heating boiler was clogged.
Our plumbing field supervisor Robert was called to Archibald apartment complex on 39th street in NW Washington D.C. for a stopped up drain line that had flooded the basement. Robert had to access the drain line from the sewer system outside through a manhole. Robert located the drain line and found the problem. A root system had grown in the line.
Our team of plumbing professionals here at Real Plumbers were recently given the opportunity to showcase our skills by performing a water pipe repair service for one of our clients at Woodhollow Terrace here in Fort Washington. As you can see in the pictures here, their water pipe had a fairly significant leak and we had our work cut out for us. After excavating the area around the pipe, we were able to both find the exact location of the leak and ensure that it was the only one. Rather than opting to replace the entire pipe, which would have resulted in even more excavation, we decided to make use of a Mega-Lug ductile iron repair clamp instead. One of the main benefits of utilizing a solution like this is because it can be installed under pressure, eliminating the need for costly water main shutoffs.
