Do I have a water leak in my home?
Having a leaky faucet or inefficient toilet not only wastes water but can also cost you hundreds of dollars in utility bills.
- Signs of a water leak in your home include:
- A dramatic increase in water and sewer bills with no explanation
- Dripping sound
- Moldy or musty odor even after cleaning
- Cracks in the home’s foundation
- Wet spots or discoloration on the walls or floor
- A water meter that continues to run even when the water is not in use
If you suspect your home is suffering from a water leak, call the team at South West Plumbing as soon as possible. Without immediate repair, your home could sustain serious structural damage, and be susceptible to mold and mildew growth that can cause health issues; particularly for those with allergies or asthma.
Can South West Plumbing fix the damage from a water leak?
In addition to standard repairs and replacements, we offer renovation services, giving your bathroom a complete makeover with the installation of a new shower or tub. Our designers at South West Plumbing help you choose from a range of options that include cast-iron, steel, and fiberglass tubs, rain-style showers, handheld showers, and wheelchair-accessible showers and tubs. Your shower or tub can be customized with premium features like integrated seating, built-in shelves, and waterproof speakers to enjoy a spa-inspired experience in the comfort of your home.
No matter how large or small your plumbing job, we pledge to leave your home cleaner than we found it. When you have an issue, we will work with you closely to find the best solution for your plumbing needs, guiding you through the process from start to finish.
We provide repairs and installation for boilers, gas furnaces, and radiant heating systems. Many homeowners are not aware that their heating system should be serviced at least once a year―preferably twice a year in the spring and fall. Our experienced technicians will make sure your heater is in optimal condition before cold weather arrives.
Annual service for your heater will extend the life of your system and make sure it is working as well as it should keep your family warm. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, proper heating maintenance could save you up to 30 percent on your annual utility bills. You will also save money by preventing costly repairs that could be avoided by caring for the system components properly.
What are other benefits of hiring a professional heating technician?
Having your HVAC system cleaned by a professional also improves your indoor air quality. As reported by the Indoor Air Quality Association, the Environmental Protection Agency indicates that our homes have two to five times more indoor air pollutants than found in the air outdoors. A professional cleaning will improve the air quality in your home by removing dust, pollen, mold, pet dander, and other substances that would otherwise circulate in the air your family breathes.
If you purchased a heating system that is still covered under warranty, regular professional maintenance may be required under its warranty terms. Therefore, if you do not have your system serviced each year, and something goes wrong, it will not necessarily be covered by warranty.
What if I Need a New Heating System?
When your home is ready for a new heating system, we can help you choose between various energy-efficient options to find the solution that best fits your needs. Our team is intimately familiar with the top products on the market and can advise you depending on your home’s energy source, distribution system, and other factors.
Traditional and Trenchless Sewer Repair
Our camera-based sewer inspection allows us to detect major structural problems with your sewer line. This allows us to determine the best solution for your problem without digging up your yard or using heavy equipment when there is no need.
If we do find a broken or collapsed sewer line, we can use the traditional method of digging trenches to repair the affected area. In some cases, trenchless repair is available, offering a more efficient process with less disruption to your home and landscaping. Our trenchless sewer repair methods use high-tech equipment that can install new sewer lines under driveways, patios, retaining walls, and other hardscaping features by digging two small holes. This project can be completed in just a few days, after which you can return to full enjoyment of your outdoor space.
The installation of a new pipelining is another option for some damaged sewer line repairs. Inserting a high-strength polymer lining into your existing sewer pipe helps extend the life of your system by years while reducing the frequency of clogs and other issues. Sewer line and drain issues can lead to water damage in your home, unpleasant odors, and unsanitary living conditions.
Do I need sewer or drain repair?
Signs that you may need a sewer or drain repair or replacement include:
- Standing water in your sinks, shower or bathtub, especially if one drain fills up when another drain empties
- Slow-moving drains
- Overflowing or backed-up toilets
- Gurgling sounds coming from the drain
- Foul odor coming from the drain
- Water or sewage backup on your lawn
How can I extend the life of my sewer system?
Homeowners can extend the life of their sewer systems by keeping hair, oil, grease, and other substances away from drains as debris clogs the pipes, eventually leading to a sewage or drainage problem. Routine maintenance for your home’s sewer system can also eliminate minor problems before they develop into major complications. Avoid using store-bought drain cleaners, which are usually only effective for small clogs, and can corrode your pipes if used frequently, making the problem exponentially worse.
