Existing Water Heater Needs to Be Repaired?
Are you experiencing problems with your hot water? Maybe you’re not getting any hot water at all? Not enough hot water? Maybe the tank is noisy, or maybe it is leaking?
For more information, check out our water heater repair services page.
Need Your Water Heater to Be Replaced?
There are many reasons why you would want to have your current unit replaced. In some cases, it requires more than a simple repair to restore the functionality of your existing unit. In other cases, you might be interested in taking advantage of the increased efficiency or convenience of a newer or more advanced water heater.
You can find more information on our water heater replacement services page.
Toilet Repair and Installation
It can be extremely frustrating when your toilet is clogged or seems to be lacking the flushing force that it normally has. In most cases, your toilet problems can be solved either by yourself, or in a single visit by a professional plumber. Rarely is it the case that a new unit is required, unless what you want is to upgrade to a newer or better unit.
Is Your Toilet Clogged Or Does It Have a Weak Flush?
When your toilet is clogged, not only can this cause a major inconvenience in your house, but it can also cause potentially expensive water damage. This is because when your toilet is clogged, the water level in the bowl can continue increasing until water begins to pour out onto the floor.
Some clogs can be easily resolved with a simple household plunger and a bit of elbow grease. We recommend that you try this first. If plunging doesn’t solve the problem, or if your toilet requires frequent plunging in order to stay running, then it’s time to contact a professional.
How Do You Know When Your Toilet Needs Repair?
There are various symptoms of a toilet that needs repair. Sometimes the symptoms are obvious—for example, observing a visible crack or walking into your bathroom one day and seeing water all over the floor. Other times the symptoms can be more subtle—for example, a “sluggish” or weak flush, or a toilet that continues to run until you “jiggle” the handle.
Rest assured that we’ve seen it all. From serious problems to performance enhancements and fine-tuning, we’re happy to help you with any toilet issue.
Want To Get a New Toilet Installed?
If your water is metered, then you’ll definitely want to make sure that your toilet is as efficient as possible. After The Energy Policy Act went into effect in 1994, all toilets manufactured in the US were required to meet strict efficiency standards. If your toilet was manufactured before then, it’s very likely that your water bill is much higher than it would otherwise be if you had a more efficient unit.
Is it time for a new toilet? Already purchased a new toilet and want to have it professionally installed? Or, if you haven’t yet purchased one, that’s fine, we’ll handle the process for you and likely save you money as well.
Sewer Cleaning and Repair
The sewer lines under your home or business can become damaged or backed up. Sometimes contaminated water is easy to spot. In many cases the water will be discolored or carry a foul smell. However, it’s important to understand that harmful contamination of the water supply isn’t always detectable by visual observation or even your smell or taste.
Some common causes of damaged or clogged sewer lines are as follows:
- Clogs caused by a buildup of oil or grease that has accumulated over time
- Tree roots that have slowly pushed against sewer lines until they are cracked
- Freezing temperatures that turn water inside the sewage pipe into ice causing the pipe to “burst”
- “Natural” decay and corrosion of old sewage pipes
Potential Health Risks
If you suspect that a sewer line has been damaged, do not delay–it should be taken care of immediately. The reason for this urgency is the potential risks posed by unsanitary water which may contain dangerous bacteria that is extremely harmful to both humans and animals. Due to health risks, this is one plumbing situation where you should call in an experienced professional rather than try to fix the problem yourself.
Drain Cleaning Services
A fact of reality is that every plumbing system is prone to clogging. When you have a clogged drain, it’s often easy to remedy yourself using something as simple as vinegar or chemicals that you can purchase from the local grocery or hardware store. But, often those simple solutions aren’t enough. Or, even if they do work, sometimes they need to be used over and over on a regular basis in order to keep your drains flowing smoothly. In either case, it might be time to seek professional help.
What causes a clogged drain?
There is a long list of what can cause a clogged drain. In the bathroom, it’s very common for skin debris, hair, and soap to build up in the drains over time. In the kitchen, the most common culprit is oil and grease that has accumulated over many years and needs to be cleared out.
Regardless of what’s causing your clogged drain, you’ll definitely want to have it fixed as soon as possible. As you may have already discovered, clogged drains can often lead to pools of water developing in your sink or bathtub, and that water can quickly become full of harmful bacteria.
Shower Installation and Repair
Whether it’s part of a comprehensive remodel or a project of it’s own, you might want be in need of a new shower installation.
There are many reasons why people decide to install a new shower in their bathroom. Sometimes the old shower is simply old and ugly, and other times you might want a unit that is more accommodating to your specific needs and desires.
What Options Are Available?
Just as there are many reasons for why you might want a new shower, there are also many ways to go about your new shower installation. Prefabricated units are a great way to save money due to less time being required to install. On the other hand, custom options require a larger investment but can provide superior aesthetics and a more seamless integration into your existing decor.
Maybe you already have a prefabricated option picked out and you’d like to have it professionally installed. Or, maybe you want to go the custom route. Either way, we at American River Plumbing have the skills and expertise to complete your project.
