When it comes to your home, few systems are as important or as regularly used as your plumbing. A good plumbing system is an absolute must, so you want someone you can trust to install new fixtures, inspect and repair your pipes and be available whenever problems occur.
For those that live in or near the Washington, DC area, Service Doctors provides a full line of services designed to keep your plumbing system operating smoothly at all times. From basic annual maintenance to emergency repairs, if your plumbing needs attention, call us today.
Your plumbing system is a complex series of pipes, drains and fixtures that need to be properly installed to work as intended. A single misaligned washer can directly impact your water pressure and the effectiveness of your fixtures. We offer expert installation services for plumbing system components.
The key to effective installation of new fixtures and pipes is proper sizing, use of the best quality materials, and an understanding of your family’s needs. If you have a remodeling project or simply want to replace a single fixture and you want to ensure the job is done right, call us today.
There are a number of reasons your plumbing might stop working properly. In some cases, a clogged drain can slow down every fixture in your home. A leaky pipe can reduce water pressure and increase your water bill. A dripping faucet can be incredibly annoying.
If you notice something not working quite right – whether it’s your water heater failing to provide enough hot water or a wet patch on your lawn that you’re afraid might be the result of a leaky pipe – you need to act fast. Most plumbing repairs are routine, requiring a patch that takes very little time and costs you little money. However, when a small problem is ignored it can become a major problem.
One of the easiest ways to avoid the cost of emergency repairs is to have routine annual maintenance performed on your plumbing system. Routine maintenance involves checking for leaks in exposed pipes, checking for corrosion in or around the pipes and joints, testing water pressure, cleaning sediment from faucets and shower heads, checking the flush handle of your toilet, and making sure each drain empties as quickly as it should.
When a small problem is noticed during routine maintenance, the cost of repair is significantly less than when the same problem forces you to call for emergency service after previously being ignored.
As durable as modern plumbing parts have become, pipes and fixtures are only designed to last so long. There are a number of signs indicating that you may need to replace some or all of your plumbing system. Excess corrosion or leaks in your pipes is always a sign that replacement may be necessary. Often, small parts of the system can be replaced at a time to make it a more affordable project, but it’s important that you call for inspection or routine maintenance sooner than later so the process can be started.
Regardless of the type of plumbing service you need, call Service Doctors today. Our Washington D.C. area plumbers are skilled in everything from new fixture installation to regular maintenance and full pipe replacements.
