Plumbing Repairs in Aurora
Every homeowner expects their plumbing system to break down at some point. However, it is never pleasant when it happens, and it usually occurs at an inconvenient time. We aim to take the stress out of plumbing repairs so that you can get back to your day.
Defects and wear and tear can happen anywhere in your plumbing system. One of the most dangerous places this can occur is in your foundation. A slab leak takes place when pipes under your foundation develop a leak. This can cause damage to your foundation, so it is important to catch the problem quickly. We are experts at finding leaks, but we rely on you to keep a watchful eye on your plumbing system. Anything that seems different warrants a call to our plumbers.
There are certain indications that can be helpful for you to remember. You should watch for new cracks in the floor of your basement, utility bills that are suddenly higher without explanation, sounds of dripping or running water that doesn’t stop when the water is off, and any signs of pooling water around your home’s foundation. You should never hesitate to call a plumber, even if you aren’t sure something is a problem.
Toilet and Fixture Repair and Installation
One of the easiest ways to boost the appearance of your bathroom is to invest in new fixtures and a new toilet. Today’s technology makes these items more efficient and more beautiful than ever. Our technicians can help you design your new bathroom and install fixtures so that you can enjoy the luxury of a new bathroom without the expense.
Investing in a new toilet can be a great way to save money on your water bill each month. New toilets are designed with sustainability in mind, and they use less water to achieve their intended function. You can also purchase toilets that have fewer nooks and crannies for easier cleaning, bidet features, and smart functions such as automatic seat opening and flushing.
In addition to toilet repairs and installations, we also offer fast and efficient repair services for your faucets and other fixtures. A dripping faucet can waste many gallons of water each day and can cause expensive damage to your pipes. Usually, the problem is easy for us to fix, so call as soon as you can before it causes bigger problems.
Garbage Disposal Services
If your garbage disposal has suddenly stopped working, you are not alone. A good portion of the service calls that we receive each year, especially during the holidays, is for jammed, clogged, or broken garbage disposals. The good news is that with our fast garbage disposal repair services, we are usually able to come and fix your disposal before the end of the day so that you can continue cooking and washing your dishes.
Garbage disposals can become jammed or clogged when too much food is placed down the disposal or when homeowners try to place the wrong items down the disposal. It is important to take care of your disposal by only putting a reasonable amount of approved foods down the disposal. Stay away from vegetables with strong fibers and from shrimp shells and grease.
If your disposal is leaking or damaged beyond repair, you have many different options for your garbage disposal replacement. At Mac Vik Plumbing and Heating, we can install garbage disposals that are quiet and have a larger capacity for food scraps. We can even install disposals that can grind small chicken bones and raw vegetables with ease.
Sump Pump Repair and Installation
At times, Aurora can experience high levels of rainfall. During the spring, a combination of snowmelt and spring rains can overwhelm your home’s basement or foundation and cause flooding. A sump pump is a necessary level of protection that will keep this from happening even during a wet year.
In areas with both dry and wet seasons, it is important to make sure your sump pump is fully operational even when there isn’t a lot of moisture. You can call our plumbers before the end of the winter to come and perform maintenance on your sump pump to make sure it is ready for springtime snowmelt and rain.
Your sump pump can be tested by pouring water into the sump pit. The sump pump should turn on by itself and drain the water quickly. If there are any clogs in the discharge pipe, the water does not drain quickly, or the sump pump does not turn on at all, call us and we will come to your home as soon as we can to service your sump pump before the next storm.
Drain Cleaning Services
Many homeowners view drain cleaning and clog removal as a DIY task and will head to the store to pick up a snake and a gallon of chemicals to pour down the drain. While these methods can work for small clogs that are close to the surface, they can also push the problem deeper into your pipes and cause a more serious problem in the future.
AT Mac Vik we employ the newest technologies to get your pipes as clean as they were when they were put in. Our hydro jetting technique uses high pressured water that cleans every pipe in your home. Instead of pushing the clog to a different place in your pipe, hydro jetting pushes clogs, grease, debris, and hair completely out of your system so that the problem does not recur.
Water Heater Services
If you have ever had to endure a cold shower, you know how important it is to have a water heater that is running properly. A broken heater can cause more than just an uncomfortable showering experience, however. If your water heater is leaking it can cause damage to the flooring and rooms below the water heater. If you are having problems with your water heater, call our plumbers today.
Tankless Water Heaters
If you are continually running out of hot water while doing routine tasks, this may be an indication that your tank is too small for your family. One of the best ways to fix this problem is to upgrade to a tankless water heater. Instead of storing hot water, a tankless water heater heats the water as needed so you will never run out of hot water again. We install, service, and repair all brands of tankless water heaters.
Our customers are very important to us and we try to treat each person as though they were family. For over 50 years we have worked hard to become the type of company that our customers can rely on for fair pricing and quality work. We make sure that every member of our team is background checked and EPA certified. Each of our plumbers also shares our passion for the plumbing, heating, and cooling industries and have extensive knowledge with a thirst for learning more. If you are in Aurora or the surrounding areas, we are happy to take care of your plumbing repair or installation.
