Have a long to-do list or have trouble keeping up with household maintenance practice such as switching out plumbing fixtures? There are many running fixtures and sections that require replacements, such as in kitchens and bathrooms. However, letting it go unnoticed is a set up for disaster. Luckily, here is a guide on what type of repairs to look for and a recommendation on when it may be time for new installations. Keep in mind that proper maintenance is recommended annually to reduce the chance of a leak.
Kitchen Drain Pipe System
Over time, you may find that the pipe underneath your kitchen sink leaks. While it is very common, this problem is caused by built-up residue and can clog up and eventually rot the pipe system. You should therefore completely replace the kitchen pipe if tightening the pipe does not work or there is obvious decay in the material (water stains around or underneath countertops are also a sign of needed repair). Installations are made easy with the help of our certified professional plumbers who use special plumbing codes, cut and measure precisely for pipes such as tailpieces to fit properly and tightly secure screw pieces for joints and slip nuts. Every part of a kitchen sink plumbing system is connected so when in doubt, swap it out!
Bathroom Fixture Repairs
Bathroom fixture repairs to look for include leaky showerheads and toilets as well as clogged drains. Other fixtures such as corrosion with the bathroom metal drain ring may be as easy as needing basic fastening but should be replaced as soon as possible before a leak begins. Having a bathroom issue does not always necessarily mean completely replacing the entire fixture, but replacing the inside parts such as levers and valves that help fixtures properly function. As a rule of thumb, leaks and corrosion in your bathroom contain replaceable parts that should be replaced whenever issues become apparent. Just like kitchen sinks, bathroom sinks also require proper tightening of nuts and bolts to prevent leakage. It is possible to overtighten or not tighten it enough as leaking can still occur. It is therefore important that you hire a professional for all types of installations and bathroom fixture repairs. Solutions for bathroom repair fixtures can vary, but should only be replaced as a whole if there are no signs of sealing (which you can do yourself or have one of our professionals do it for you).

I called the number and had to leave a message. Within 10 minutes someone called me back. They came out within a few hours and fixed my drain. Clay, my technician, was professional, and knowledgeable with a great attitude (especially on a hot Friday afternoon)! Fixed my problem in no time. Their service is outstanding. And prices are reasonable for the area. I would definitely use them again!
Stephanie Mellott First of all, they were ON TIME. In fact, the first visit was early! A slab leak is scary, but within the week, I was scheduled for repair. It took a matter of hours. All of the plumbers were polite and worked quickly and cleanly. When the contractor came to assess the damage to the house, he was so impressed by the lack of damage to my home that he asked me for the name of ASAP twice! Highly recommend this company and their services.
