We Offer Water Heater Repair and Installation Services

Did you know that water heaters should be inspected annually? These important but often-ignored appliances produce a commodity that we take for granted: hot water. A malfunctioning water heater suddenly becomes a priority to fix. Avoid the emergency plumber call by scheduling annual inspections and service visits. South West Plumbing professionals will maintain your water heater and keep it performing optimally over a full, long life.

When the time comes for a replacement water heater, consider a tankless water heater. South West Plumbing experts will install whichever model you prefer, tankless or standard.

Drain Cleaning

When your drainpipes get clogged, it can be a nasty business. Many homeowners try removing clogs with pour-down products, plungers, or extraction tools. When these do not work, it is time to call a plumber. The pros at South West Plumbing have the tools and experience to remove clogs from drains and get water flowing freely again.

Sewer Line Repairs and Cleaning

Like clogged drains, blocked sewer lines are unpleasant and inconvenient. How do underground sewer lines get blocked? Tree roots and accumulated sludge and grease are the usual culprits. Tree roots grow into sewer lines and eventually fill them. Sludge and grease flow into lines, settle, compact, and build up in layers.  Other kinds of damage occur as well. Shifting ground and the stress of extreme temperatures can compromise sewer lines.

South West Plumbing professionals find damaged areas using tiny video cameras threaded into the lines. Targeted repairs can then be made. Trenchless sewer line repair means less mess and expense to get the job done.

Hydro Jetting

Hydro jetting is an effective method used by South West Plumbing to clear sewer lines. It involves injecting a stream of highly pressurized water with enough force to break apart stubborn blockages, including tree roots and compacted debris.

Toilet Installation and Toilet Leak Repairs

Leaky and malfunctioning toilets are common occurrences in homes and buildings that are more than ten years old. Age and use cause components and sealant materials to wear out. Inside toilet tanks, flapper valves, chains, pipes, and assemblies fail. Under toilet bases, rubber seals deteriorate.

South West Plumbing plumbers have lots of experience repairing toilets. Sometimes the best strategy is to replace a problem toilet with a new one. Many new models are available, including low-water-use toilets that help households conserve water.

Showers and Bathtubs

Plumbers are the tradespeople who install showers and tubs and connect fixtures to water pipes. They also are the experts to call if fixtures need repairing. South West Plumbing pros install, repair, and replace both the containers and the fixtures.

Burst Pipe Repairs

Everyone knows about pipes that burst in the winter, but pipes burst at other times of the year as well. The common characteristic of burst pipes is aged materials. Worn out or corroded pipes are susceptible to bursting. Pipes that get hit or knocked can also break. Whatever the cause, a burst pipe causes a mess and needs to be repaired. Call South West Plumbing when you need pipe repairs.

Toilet Leak Repairs

As toilets age, leaks become more likely. Parts inside the tanks wear out and stop working, like valves and flappers. Seals under the bases wear out, leading to leaks. Some homeowners can make repairs themselves. Others simply prefer to call South West Plumbing and let us take care of all repairs.

When toilets need replacing, our plumbers can install standard toilets or lower-water-use models. Many choices are available for the discriminating homeowner.

Sump Pump Installation

Homes with basements often have a sump pump to remove water in the event of a flood. This type of pump turns on when rising waters lifts a float, activating a switch. Plumbers at South West Plumbing install, repair, and maintain sump pumps.

Slab Leak Repair

Slab leaks sound serious to the average homeowner. Fortunately, with our advanced leak detection tools, plumbers at South West Plumbing can locate leaks and carry out repairs with minimum invasion of a building’s walls and slab.
