Rancho Penasquitos Services
Emergency Plumbing Services
We’re known for our prompt arrivals, technical expertise, and efficient work. Our emergency plumbing services are pretty much the same as our scheduled services, available anytime 24 hours a day every day of the year.
Drains and Sewer
We provide the full range of drain and sewer cleaning, repair, and replacement services. For most jobs traditional cabling (drain snaking) gets the job done for grease as well as hair and soap scum clogs. But for recurring problems, particularly those involving extensive grease build up, our hydro jetting services provide the most thorough drain cleaning possible.
If the clog is further down in the sewer line the same solutions usually apply, but there’s many more things that could be wrong. Tree roots may have invaded, old clay lines may have collapsed, cast iron lines may have corroded, joints can separate, and the line can sag. So we use our top-of-the-line sewer video cameras to quite literally take a look. That way we’ll know the best drain or sewer cleaning approach, right from the start.
If there’s a serious problem our master plumbers are licensed for sewer repairs and replacements. With the latest trenchless technologies (such as pipe lining and pipe bursting) that doesn’t necessarily mean jack hammering through pavement or digging up the lawn.
Leak Detection and Repair
Leaky faucets and gushers are easy to spot. But our leak detection specialists have the latest electronic detection instruments for those that are tough to track down. Together with their years of experience they can pinpoint the location without any unnecessary holes to add to the cost of a pipe repair. And our master plumbers are well-qualified for gas line leak repairs and upgrades.
Slab leak repairs involve plumbing that runs underneath a concrete floor slab. The most economical solution depends on where the slab leak is located, so accurate detection is especially important. Options usually include spot repairs (breaking through the slab to repair a short section of pipe), re-routing new pipes in the attic or around the perimeter, and pipe lining (installing a cured in place pipe inside the existing line).
Whether you have a propane, natural gas, or electric model our water heater specialists are expert trouble-shooters, going straight to the right repair to save time and money. With our well-stocked trucks our water heater repairs rarely take more than a single visit. If your current model is well past its warranty, is in poor condition, or needs an expensive repair we also perform economical water heater installation. Replacements typically take just a couple of hours.
If it’s time for a replacement, consider high-performance models for significant energy savings. We’re up to date on the latest energy regulations and technologies such as electric heat pumps now necessary to meet performance standards for electric units. We’re also experts in installing, maintaining, and repairing tankless water heaters for energy savings and a never-ending supply of hot water.
Our plumbing services also cover residential and commercial fixtures such as garbage disposals, faucets, sinks, showers, tubs, toilets and urinals. Owner an older home or business? In addition to updating fixtures we can re-pipe the entire facility for a trouble-free future.
Do homes and businesses in Rancho Penasquitos really need water softeners? In a word, yes. Hard water is defined as having more than 7 grains per gallon (120 parts per million) per gallon of calcium carbonate or its equivalent. Very hard is above 10.5 gr/gal. Depending on the treatment plant and environmental conditions water in San Diego County comes in at 10.0 to 17 gr/gal, averaging around 14.6 — almost 1 1/2 times the threshold. With a properly working water softener you’ll have cleaner laundry, healthier hair and skin, less scale build up, and longer lasting water heaters and other appliances.
Did You Know? “Penasquitos” is Spanish for “little cliffs.” PQ was the first Mexican Land Grant in the county. Later the city served as a traveler’s way station then as a ranch until real estate development started in 1962.
