Our emergency services include drain and sewer cleaning, garbage disposal repairs, and just about any residential plumbing or commercial plumbing need you might have.
La Jolla Drain Cleaning
Lye- and acid-based drain cleaning products simply aren’t safe, neither for you nor your pipes. Liquid drain cleaners based on sodium hypochlorite (bleach) are often effective but you’re likely to have another clog before long, especially if it’s the kitchen sink that’s been giving you trouble. Our experts are experienced in using cabling (drain snaking) to remove obstructions and as much build-up as possible. When that’s not enough our advanced hydro jetting equipment can return drain pipes to “good as new” inside with high-pressure jets of water.
A backed up toilet isn’t the only reason you may need sewer cleaning. All drains connect up to the sewer line that in turn connects to the La Jolla sewer system, so an obstruction or restriction can affect any fixture in a home or business. The underlying cause may any of numerous possibilities such as a grease and sludge build up, tree roots, a foreign object getting flushed, or even a collapsed line. To find out we start with an inspection using our top-of-the-line sewer video cameras. Once we know the nature and location of the problem we can advise you on the best solution. That’s not necessarily digging up your yard for a repair or replacement. Our hydro jetting gear with special nozzles and higher pressure can clear most obstructions, including tree roots.
Leak Detection and Leak Repairs
If ignored even small leaks can lead to major water damage. That often occurs inside walls and other places you can’t see, with little or no apparent clues. So if you have any reason to suspect a leak, our leak detection specialists can “confirm or deny” and if needed track down the exact location. They combine training, experience, and the latest electronics for the most accurate and dependable results. Wherever the problem happens to be located we can then proceed with quality-workmanship leak repairs.
Slab Leak Repairs
If that leak is underneath the concrete slab foundation (the most common type of foundation in La Jolla) you’ll need a slab leak repair. One standard method involves ripping up flooring and hacking through the concrete for a spot repair. That’s highly disruptive, not to mention expensive when all costs are considered. Our accurate location tells us if re-piping or other options are better alternatives for your slab leak repair.
Having a water heater problem? We’ll send an expert over right away. Their troubleshooting expertise saves time and money, for what’s often a same-day repair. If your electric or gas water heater is well past its warranty, has been giving you headaches, or has a leaking tank they can also handle replacement installations. Most people choose a model similar to their current one, but we encourage you to consider the latest high-efficiency models and new technologies.
Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters have been in widespread use in other countries for decades, but are just now catching on around La Jolla. Heating only the water you use, as you use it, they boost efficiency and provide a never-ending supply. They’re small, so that electric models can be mounted under kitchen and bathroom sinks where they save both energy and water while providing the convenience of instant hot water.
Our team includes experts experienced in the special needs, fixtures, and complexities of commercial plumbing. From lavatories in office suites to preventive maintenance and repiping in commercial complexes we have you covered.

La Jolla Water Quality
Tap water as delivered in La Jolla meets all federal and state health standards, as demonstrated by some 300,000 tests conducted each year. Water hardness in its various sources range from 2.4 (soft) to 18.2 grains per gallon. Averaging around 15 gr/gal. puts it in the very hard category (above 10.5). That’s not a health issue, but it does lead to mineral deposits in the shower as well as inside water heaters and other appliances. If you don’t already have one we recommend installing a whole-house water filter, and for the best in drinking water we can install an under-the-sink water filter.
