Tulsa OK Plumbers Expand Slab Leak Solutions to Include Foundation Piering

Local Tulsa plumber Big C’s Plumbing Service has expanded services to help customers catch underground leak problems early via myriad of approaches including observing foundation shifting.

Tulsa, United States - February 27, 2020 /PressCable/ —

Big C’s Plumbing Service, a licensed, bonded and insured Tulsa, Oklahoma plumbing contractor business and gas fitter with more than 25 years of experience in the industry, expanded its slab leak solutions offerings to include foundation piering services, a move designed to help customers catch underground leak problems early with the assistance of additional approaches, such as observing foundation shifting.

“Unfortunately, it can be very difficult to determine whether or not a customer has a problem with an underground leak that requires slab leak repair,” explains Chris Ogan, President of Big C’s Plumbing Service. “There are some signs that homeowners can look for, however, that will help them catch a problem early, and these include wet flooring or carpets, moist baseboards or the lower part of a wall, cracking concrete due to the foundation shifting, unexplained mold growth, high water bills, low water pressure and the sound of moving water when no water is being used.

“Should customers in the areas of Broken Arrow, Claremore or Mayes County suspect there is a leak under their floor and require slab leak detection services – and possibly slab leak repair – it is imperative that they call us immediately so that it’s fixed before turning into a larger, more expensive problem.”

According to the EPA, leaky pipes and fixtures can waste more than 10,000 gallons of water every year, but what’s more important, say Big C’s representatives, are the shifting, sinking and leaking foundations that are almost always connected to a soil issue. Most modern homes are built on concrete foundations, and though a complete foundation replacement represents an extremely expensive proposition, the technique of piering can be used to repair a sinking foundation – sometimes for up to 10 times cheaper than a complete replacement.

Beyond slab leaks, Big C’s offers competitively-priced solutions in the areas of general plumbing services, video camera inspection, sewer mains and water mains, drain cleaning/snaking, kitchen and bathroom remodeling, new construction rough-ins, garbage disposal installations, faucets and fixtures, rooter services, toilets and urinals (all styles), electric and gas water heater repair and installation, tankless water heaters, sinks/showers/bathtubs, valve replacement, hose bibs and outdoor plumbing, irrigation systems, water softeners and reverse osmosis systems, re-piping PEX (copper and steel), cracked or broken pipes, tenant improvements, residential/commercial applications and more.

In the area of drain cleaning, Big C’s points out to customers that the causes of most clogs are fairly “routine,” save for those in the bathroom, where it’s usually a matter of built-up hair, skin and soap scum. In the kitchen, according to Big C’s reps, clogs are often due to a buildup of cooking grease or oil, various food particles and soap scum over time.

Because water heaters are likely the most important appliance in a home, due to the fact that they’re used every day, Big C’s plumber technicians are trained to determine when a problem requires a new unit or a repair; some of the most common problems technicians see with regard to water heaters include water not getting hot enough, water that’s too hot, water leaking from the tank or pipes onto the ground, unusual noises or water coming out of the faucets with discoloration and/or bad odors.

Big C’s Plumbing Tulsa is located at 3802 ½ S Norfolk Avenue and can be reached by calling (918) 218-2224. For more information visit their website cited above.

BEIJING — A preliminary investigation into viral pneumonia illnesses sickening dozens of people in and around China has identified the possible cause as a new type of coronavirus, state media said Thursday. Chinese health authorities did not immediately confirm the report from state broadcaster CCTV. Coronaviruses are spread through coughing or sneezing or by touching an infected person. Some cause the common cold and others can lead to more severe respiratory diseases, such as SARS and MERS. Such viruses are common in people but more exotic versions from bats, camels and other animals have caused severe illness. The novel coronavirus...

Counting whales from space pitched as key to saving them

US tells UN it is pulling out of Paris climate deal

WASHINGTON — The United States has told the United Nations it has begun the process of pulling out of the landmark 2015 Paris climate agreement.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Forget reheated, freeze-dried space grub. Astronauts are about to get a new test oven for baking chocolate chip cookies from scratch. The next delivery to the International Space Station — scheduled for liftoff this weekend — includes the Zero G Oven. Chocolate chip cookie dough is already up there, waiting to pop into this small electric oven designed for zero gravity. Sample cookies baked just this week are also launching from Virginia on Northrop Grumman's Cygnus capsule, for the six station astronauts. The experiment explores the possibility of making freshly baked items for space travelers. With...

China says US has 'weaponized' visas to target exchanges

Apr 3, 2020

BEIJING — China on Wednesday accused the U.S. of having "weaponized" the issuance of visas following the reported inability of a top Chinese space program official to obtain permission to travel to a key conference in Washington. Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters that the head of the Chinese delegation to the International Astronautical Congress wasn't able to obtain a visa following an Oct. 12 interview, making it difficult for Chinese representatives to attend important events at the meeting. Reports said the vice chairman of the China National Space Administration, Wu Yanhua, had planned to attend the congress. Hua...
