Whether you have a planned fixture replacement or an unexpected repair, plumbing
issues are rarely a simple endeavor. Without help from a skilled professional, what
should only take a few minutes often turns into an all-day project? Skip the frustration
with a certified Idaho Springs plumber for your next toilet repair, water heater
replacement, drain cleaning, or other plumbing jobs.

Toilet Repair and Installation

Toilets issues are often inconvenient, messy, and frustrating. Whether the bowl is filling
too much or not enough, it simply isn’t flushing or is constantly running, our
professionals can diagnose your toilet issue and get your bathroom schedules back on
track in no time with a quick repair or expert toilet installation. Many times our
technicians have replacements on hand if one becomes necessary, so you don’t have to
suffer the inconvenience of a bathroom in disrepair for too long.

Fixture Repair and Installation

Leaky faucets are not only annoying, but they could be costing you more than you think.
Not only can leaks waste hot water, but they can also cause extensive damage to your
home if not addressed on time. Leaks below sinks may affect your cabinets
and anything stored in them, but internal pipes can affect drywall and subflooring if
allowed to drip for too long. Whether you need an emergency repair or want to
replace outdated fixtures in your kitchen or bathroom, our trusted professionals will
ensure the job is done right.

Garbage Disposal Repair and Installation

The sound of garbage disposal grinding to a halt is one that many homeowners dread.
Whether your garbage disposal is wearing out or something foreign is jammed in the
blades, our professional technicians are ready to inspect and repair your disposal no
matter the brand. Their extensive knowledge of garbage disposal brands means they
know exactly what to look for when inspecting your disposal.
When repair isn’t a viable option for your garbage disposal, a technician will present you
with a selection of comparable replacements to get your sink back into working order
again. You may be pleasantly surprised to find that newer garbage disposals are much
quieter than older models and have a wider range of horsepower options to fit a variety
of needs.

Drain Cleaning

While store-bought drain cleaning solutions may offer a temporary fix to a sink or
shower not draining, they usually don’t completely clear the drain of smelly buildup. In
fact, many homeowners find themselves in the same situation a few months later with
another clogged drain or, worse, a damaged pipe. Professional drain cleaning clears all
residue from the drain with safe and effective cleaning methods. With an expert drain
cleaning, you won’t have to worry about another clog resurfacing for a while.

Sewer Line Repair

A broken sewer line is difficult to miss and can leave an overwhelming mess for the
homeowner to clean up. While sewer line repairs aren’t fun, they are necessary to save
your yard and home from further damage.
In the past, sewer line repairs involved digging up the yard to fix the outside line. Today, professional plumbers will use less invasive techniques and repair the
line from the inside. Many times, small cracks, seams, and tree root damage can be
repaired using this method. To see if your sewer line issue can be repaired this way, call
a professional today.

Slab Leak Repair

Slab leaks can go undetected for long periods of time until devastating damage is
inflicted on the home. Slab leaks are frequently caused by earthquakes, shifting soil,
and improperly installed copper pipes. If your home is at risk, it is important to keep an
eye out for signs of a slab leak, such as wet spots around the foundation, sagging
floors, low water pressure from indoor faucets, mold growth around the home, window
and door frames that are beginning to tilt, and a sudden increase in your water bill or
usage summary.

If these signs are present in your home, call a professional right away to inspect your
slab. They will use specialized equipment to find the origin of the leak and offer repair
solutions. The sooner a slab leak is resolved, the less time it will cause further and
more expensive damage throughout the home.

Sump Pump Service and Repair

Sump pumps are crucial for homes in areas with heavy rain and snowfall. Their job is to
keep your belongings safe from water damage. When groundwater saturation is high,
the sump pump will collect the excess water and pump it through pipes out and away

from your home. When this pump isn’t in proper working condition, the water will
accumulate in the sump pump and leak into your basement or crawl space.
If your home has experienced a flood and you aren’t sure why a professional may
check the sump pump to see if this is the culprit. Pump repair is usually quick and
simple, and regular maintenance helps ensure it will work when you need it most. If your
pump is draining slowly or not at all, you may need professional sump pump repair
before the next big storm.

Water Heaters and Filtration

Water heaters must undergo regular maintenance to conserve efficiency. Without yearly
tune-ups from a professional, sediment will quickly build up on the unit’s bottom, and other parts will deteriorate much faster than normal. When too much sediment is
left in the unit, the heating elements must work harder to keep the water at an adequate
temperature. Eventually, the strain will be too much, and the unit will stop working or
start leaking.

If your water heater is only a few years old and it suddenly stopped functioning, a repair
may only be all you need to get it back into working order.

You may need a replacement, however, if you notice any of the following:

● Knocking noises that persist after maintenance or repair.
● The unit itself or a pipe leading to the unit is leaking.
● Rust is forming on the outside of the unit.
● Smelly or cloudy water is coming out of your faucets.
● Hot water runs out too fast.
● There is no hot water at all.
● The pilot light frequently goes out.

Homeowners can expect to replace their water heaters about every 10 years. In areas
with hard water, this lifespan may be cut short because of the machine’s excess sediment buildup. Many homeowners are switching to tankless water heaters when it is
time to upgrade to benefit from the higher efficiency and longer lifespans these
water heaters offer. Instead of keeping a tank of water hot all the time, tankless units
heat water as it is needed. While it may not be practical for every home, you may ask
your technician to show you these options to see if one would benefit you.

Water softeners may help your water heater and other appliances last longer, especially
if you live in an area with hard water. The minerals and sediment in hard water can

accumulate on pipes, faucets, hoses, and other parts of your appliances, creating wear
and tear on these parts. Not only can you save yourself on frequent repairs on your
appliances, but you may also benefit from needing replacements less often as well.
Water softeners also help dishwashers and washing machines clean more effectively,
so you won’t have to use as much soap to overcome the hard water. A professional
technician can help you choose a softener that is best for your needs and expertly
install it so you can enjoy the benefits of filtered water as soon as possible.
