While many of us have been social distancing and staying at home more often, home improvement projects have become a hot topic. However, when it comes to some home projects, it can be tough to go the DIY route. Home upgrades that require updates to plumbing are best left to the professionals. At ASAP Plumbing, we can help you update appliances and plumbing with no problem!
Here are some of the most common ways to update your kitchen appliances.
Run or Replace Water Lines
As water lines age, they become more vulnerable to the effects of freezing, thawing, ground movement, water pressure, mineral buildup and tree intrusion. If a water line is damaged it can cause anything from water discoloration to reduced water pressure. It is a good idea to have someone inspect your water lines yearly, so you are never caught off guard by one of these problems.
Install or Replace Refrigerators
Refrigerators are one of the most used appliances in your home, much less kitchen, and with everything that they keep cool and fresh, we need them to function. Most modern refrigerators are equipped with water lines that are connected to the ice maker and water dispenser. These lines can freeze up or become broken at any moment. They are easy to replace and are often the source of your refrigerator’s problems, but we may need to examine the back of the refrigerator and space around it for any other issues. We can also install your brand new refrigerator if you decide it’s time for a replacement.
Replace a Garbage Disposal
Garbage disposals are good to have in homes because they make dishwashing easier for everyone, but when it breaks, you’ll want to replace it. Replacement and repairs on garbage disposals may be quite frequent, as they are abused more than the average household appliance. Please do not try to fix or replace your garbage disposal on your own. We have no problem replacing or installing a new one, but it can be a dangerous job for someone who is not trained properly.
Install a Dishwasher
Installing a dishwasher is both an important plumbing and electrical project. Dishwasher installation usually has three hookups: a 20-amp electrical receptacle, hot water supply and drainage, so it is best to install the dishwasher near the kitchen sink. Improper dishwasher installation can result in flooding, which is especially a problem if you happen to be out of the house. It is best to contact a plumbing professional who knows what they are doing when you need to install or replace a dishwasher, as many parts can break down and cause problems in the kitchen.
Fix or Replace a Washing Machine
We all use washing machines frequently. I mean, what would we do without them? But, did you know washing machines experience more repairs than any other household appliance? Usually, there are two reasons for the washing machine breaking. The first is because the tub in the machine undergoes extreme movement while carrying a heavy load of wet clothes in every wash. The second is because most families run 2-3 loads of laundry per day, and because it is used so often maintenance is frequently needed.
We offer all of these services and more to help update not just your kitchen but your whole house. Remember to not try to replace or install any of these items if you do not have proper training, and it is best to contact a licensed professional.

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.
As a property manager I have used ASAP Plumbing for the last 3yrs to service our 300+ rental properties throughout the Charleston area.
