Plumbing Services

Residential plumbing services range from fixing everything that leaks to repairing anything that clogs. If you’ve unclogged a hairy drain catch in your bathtub or tightened a faucet to stop a drip, you’ve performed basic plumbing services! However, if that drain in the bathtub continues to plug-up even after you’ve done all you know to do, or the tightening of the faucet damaged the faucet seat or stem, that’s when you call your professional plumber.

Savvy homeowners in the north/northwest area of Houston take advantage of the three main types of professional, residential plumbing services available:

1) Inspection

Your annual inspection is one of the most important plumbing services available. During your inspection, your plumber will examine:

  • Ceilings underneath appliances
  • Drain pipes and their joints
  • Flooring around kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room appliances
  • Outdoor hose bibs
  • Supply line fittings, valves to kitchen/bathroom fixtures
  • Water bills against water usage
  • Water coloring for signs of rust

2) Maintenance

Plumbing maintenance can prevent expensive plumbing emergencies. Following the inspection, if any maintenance is needed, your plumbing professional will make adjustments at that time or make recommendations for the future. One of the things your plumbing professional will check include your water pressure. If it’s above normal (40-85 psi), you may consider installation of a pressure reducer. If signs of hard water buildup are visible, a water softener may be the long-term fix.

3) Repair

Routine inspection and maintenance should reduce plumbing repairs, but the most frequent include:

  • Bathroom repairs
  • Burst or frozen pipes
  • Clogged drains
  • Septic tanks and exterior plumbing
