Dallas is famous for The Cowboys, The Frozen Margaritas, The 7-Eleven, and more. Dallas’s uniqueness is a big part of why it’s so great, but some aspect of that uniqueness is also inconvenient. You guessed it right, The unpredictable weather: be it, humid, sticky hottest summers, cold and windy winters, or the heavy rainfalls! Yes, they all come with the territory. What they bring with them are serious plumbing, heating, and cooling issues.
Some unique Plumbing & HVAC problems Dallas faces :
Slab leaks due to high rainfall percentages
Dallas air holds onto moisture and has persistently high rainfall averages. Together, those two meteorological phenomena add up to making Dallas a surprisingly wet city. All of that moisture creates quite a few unique problems, including surprisingly common slab leaks.
The ground in Dallas tends to sponge up extra water, causing it to shift. That shift can damage or even break underground pipes and sewer lines. Slab leaks can be incredibly dangerous if you don’t fix them quickly. They can inflict water damage that could compromise the structural integrity of your entire home, and most definitely, your plumbing.
Pipes that aren’t prepared for cold
Any Dallas resident knows that this winter has been decidedly colder and more unpleasant than many others historically. Temperatures keep dropping, and unexpected ice is causing accidents all over. Many of these accidents happen because Dallas residents aren’t prepared for cold and snow. It’s understandable; the average temperature for this time of year in Dallas should be around 50 degrees Fahrenheit. The Sudden, unseasonal winter tends to cause plumbing problems too–mainly because people tend not to prepare for it.
The best way to prevent cold weather plumbing problems is to prepare for them before they happen. Get an expert plumber to handle cold-related plumbing emergencies.
It is “humid subtropical” when temperatures exceed 95 degrees Fahrenheit, and air retains over 70% of the moisture in it. The human body can get used or adjust to high humidity, but our home isn’t that adaptable.
Make sure your home’s HVAC systems manage airflows and maintain a safe indoor moisture level properly. Failing to do so may result in Mold an Mildew growth. Even the appliances, be it old or new, are more prone to damages, shut down in humid homes.
Therefore, hiring the best plumbing, heating, and cooling expert for serving you makes all the difference when it comes to year-round enjoyment of your home and business.
Your furnace and air conditioner need to work reliably and efficiently so you can devote your time and resources to the people and activities you care about most.

Sump Pump Installation
A sump pump is a device installed in the lowest area of your home. Its primary function is to pump water out of your area before it gets flooded. Dallas sump pump installation is not a DIY project. It should be handled by professionals to ensure that it will function correctly during flood calamity. It involves excavation at the lowest part of your property called a sump. The sump will be the indicator if the sump pump should be activated or not. When the water level in the sump reaches a certain danger level, it will enable the sump pump to start pumping the water out. The sump pump is best installed in areas of your home vulnerable to flooding. These spaces usually include your basement and crawl spaces that are below ground level.
Types of Sump Pumps
There are two main types of sump pumps: submersible and pedestal. Both are about the same size and installed for the same purpose.
- Submersible sump pumps that are placed in the water are designed with a waterproof outer layer, protecting it from damage. The pump mechanism is at the bottom and draws water up and out through pipes to an exit point. On top, a submersible pump has a grate cover to prevent debris from causing a blockage. Submersible sump pumps will last for about 5 to 15 years.
- Pedestal pump stays lifted out of the water, with a pipe that goes into the water, pulling it out and away from the affected area. Pedestal pumps are less expensive than the more complicated underground pumps, but also create more noise when running. Pedestal sump pumps will last for around 25 to 30 years if well-maintained.
When it comes to the installation of a sump pump in Dallas, 24 Hours Emergency Plumbing & heating service, repair, replace, and install these protective systems. We evaluate your space and determine the best drainage option for you. No one wants their basement to flood…we will help make sure it doesn’t.

Water Softeners and Filters
The purpose of water softeners is to filter out and lessen the hardness of the water. Measured in grains per gallon (GPG), hardness refers to the amount of dissolved magnesium and calcium in your water. Anything above 3 GPG is considered harmful to the home plumbing, appliances, water heaters, and fixtures. Furthermore, Chloramines are a common disinfectant for drinking water, especially in industrial water. Although chloramines are somewhat safe, they can cause hazardous effects if they are in the water for too long.
When you have a good water softening system, the minerals in your water will properly balance out, and you will not have to worry about chloramine. At 24 Hours Emergency Plumbing & Heating, our professionals are experts in sales and services of water softeners and filters.

The cold weather comes with a risk of frozen pipes in Dallas. That’s a problem because, when water freezes within a pipe, the water expands inside the pipe, creating a pressure that can cause the pipe to burst. Burst pipes can send hundreds of gallons of water into your home and create thousands of dollars worth of damage. The pipes that are most susceptible to freezing are the ones located in outside walls, under sinks on outer walls, and/or in unheated crawlspaces.
Why Pipes Freeze
During a hard freeze, the temperature outdoors can drop so low that the cold can permeate the pipes. Any water inside will then expand. If there is not enough room inside the pipes, then the pressure can cause cracks, which will lead to leaks when the water thaws. A professional can help with repairs to your home if the leak causes damage.
What To Do When Pipes Freeze
- Keep your pipes open, so the water has a place to go when thawed
- Apply gentle heat, like a hot towel or blow dryer, to the frozen area of the pipe
- Call a professional for help
Septic tank repairs & fixes
A septic tank separates and processes wastes. From the waste that flows into the tank, heavy solids settle to the bottom, forming a layer of sludge. Greases, oils, and lighter solids rise to the top, creating a layer of scum. The area between these two layers fills with liquid effluent that can flow through the outlet pipe to the drain field system.
The majority of septic tanks are made of concrete, plastic, or fiberglass. These tanks can last up to 50 years. However, a septic tank that is not well maintained can cause serious trouble, including risks to your health.
Contact an expert immediately if you face any of the below issues:
- Do you have a Sewage backup problem (smelly black liquid) in toilets, kitchen, and/or drains?
- Toilets, not Draining?
- Are drains running very very slowly?
- Septic system not working well?
- Bacteria in your well or drinking water?
- Bad odors around the house? can also cause that
It pays to care for your tank and invest in septic tank pumping periodically, so the necessary bacteria don’t die, shutting down the biological machine. When this happens, the sludge builds up and flows into the drain field, where it clogs up the system. Before you know it, you have a sewage backup, septic tank problems, and an unnecessary headache.
