If you have a leaking faucet in your home, it could be costing you hundreds of dollars a year on your water bills. A faulty tap can also lead to the growth of unhealthy mold and mildew. One of our expert technicians can quickly and efficiently take care of repairing or replacing that leaking faucet. We can also take care of installing or repairing any of the other plumbing fixtures in your home, including sinks toilets and showers.
A trustworthy plumber will have both commercial liability insurance as well as be bonded. The insurance and the bond protects the plumber from paying for any damages made to your house out of pocket. Having professionals that carry both of these policies can protect all of you from any mishaps that could occur while they work on your building. Remember, not all plumbers are the same and not all of them carry the necessary insurance and bonds to protect themselves and your home from damage or shoddy work.
While it’s their job to make sure your pipes work like a well-oiled machine, it’s not their job to rebuild the wall they had to demolish to make that happen. So, while you’re going to get that water problem fixed, you’ll want to discuss in detail what kind of “mess” they might leave behind prior to the start of the project so you can plan accordingly. Remember, there are some jobs you can do yourself. Here’s how to solder copper pipe joints!
In addition to water heaters, we also service and install well tanks, disposals, faucets, water closets (toilets), and re-piping of any type of water or drain lines. We also replace bathtubs, showers, sinks, vanity cabinets, and marbleized countertops. Are you looking for something more than simply replacing a sink or bathtub? No problem! We also provide complete kitchen or bathroom remodels to give your home a new look you'll be thrilled about.
Water was leaking from my kitchen down into the garage. We were expecting to have to cut out the wall, part of the floor, etc. to find the source. But Sean came in, found the problem and fixed it right away, with no invasive work. He was extremely nice, professional and thorough. It was a very positive experience and at a very reasonable price. I would definitely use Ace Plumbing again.

My toilet's fill valve needed to be replaced after breaking on a Saturday evening. I immediately contacted Charlie's Rooter after having had a great experience with them previously with my garbage disposal install. Lulu responded within moments and setup an appointment time that worked for me on Monday. Luis was the plumber that worked on this job. He was on time and extremely kind and professional. Luis went straight to the root of the problem and replaced what needed to be replaced very quickly. Luis was respectful and explained everything he was doing and why. He was even nice enough to look at my bathtub and answered all of my questions. Also, the price was extremely reasonable. I will be recommending them to my neighbors and friends when they need a good, honest plumbing company that doesn't overcharge. The work comes with a 30 day warranty which I love because it gives me some extra reassurance. I really am happy to have found this company and feel confident and comfortable with their work and staff.
You won't always need to call a plumber to help you fix a nasty clog if you treat your pipes right. Don't use your toilet or kitchen sink like a trash can by stuffing hard to flush material down the drain or pouring fats and oils down the pipe. Throw coffee grounds and eggshells in the garage instead of in your sink. Also, only use your toilet to flush human waste and toilet paper, because any other materials could clog your commode.
Why don't I think it's completely hopeless though? (I'd probably rank it 3 stars being really generous) I think the writing is promising - it flowed well and was easy to read. The H's possessiveness and jealousy and alpha tendencies were nice and if not for him being a moron in every other respect I think I could've liked the book. Unfortunately the H being a moron and treating the h badly over the ow issue just killed it for me.
“Had a late night backed up kitchen sink! I researched local area plumbers and the Advanced Plumbing website said they offered emergency service. I needed this taken care of quickly as my kitchen was a mess. I called early the next morning and the phone was answered right away--whew! The plumber arrived promptly and fixed it within a short amount of time and our family was back in business! Thank you!”

As first time homeowners to a 1950s home, we began to experience issues with our water drains (lucky us). We had bubbles of water coming out of our toilets after literally two minutes of taking a shower... if we continued to shower, it would back up and our tub would flood up with dirty water! We tolerated this for a good two months and decided we really needed to get this fixed because the smell from the back up was becoming intolerable! I am so happy we went with Charlie's Rooter Service! Louis is extremely personable and knowledgeable! He kept both my husband and I in the loop at all times. I was able to view through his video camera of the roots that were penetrating into or already inside the pipes almost every 4ft-5ft. I was even able to videotape it so I can share it with my husband while he was working at the hospital. In addition Louis noticed these clay pipes were not aligned (probably from earthquakes and the intrusion of roots).... we also only had two original clean outs (one by the kitchen sink and one by the laundry)- we had zero around our bathrooms! They were reasonable in price adding 3 additional clean outs and replacing all of our pipes that were in the most awkward places in our front corner lot. We appreciate their transparency and were vocal in sharing ways where we can save money without hindering the quality. Lifetime warranty on parts and labor are a plus! Charlie also came in every so often to check in on the team and answer any additional questions. We can tell they take pride in their work and value their customers. These guys really know what they are doing! We will never have to worry about a plumbing issue at this point and consider this a very good investment to our home. Thank you to Louis and the team for everything. We truly felt like we were working with family! We 110% recommend Charlie's Rooter Service to anyone experiencing plumbing issues!

 Hi reader in the U.S., it's a little awkward, but this Wednesday, we humbly ask you, our frequent users, to protect Wikipedia's independence. If you have already donated, we sincerely thank you. We’re not salespeople, but we depend on donations averaging $16.36 and fewer than 1% of readers give. If you donate just $2.75, the price of your coffee this Wednesday, Wikipedia could keep thriving.

Another way to avoid a service call from your plumber is to make sure the outside faucets are turned off in the winter and make sure you disconnect the outside hoses. You need to shut the water off from the inside. Then, open the valve on the outside to let the water that’s in there drain out—you switch both of them to the opposite direction so one is always closed and one is always open. We have to fix tons of these in the spring mostly because people leave their outside hoses connected and they freeze up. The repair could cost $100-$200 or more. Another tip would be if you’re going away for any length of time, like on vacation, turn off your water. If on any of those days the temperature drops below freezing, have someone check in on your house. I’ve been called to homes where the family returned from vacation, and there was water flooding out from the front door.
