Only a fraction of homeowners care properly for their sewer system, which places many homes at risk of developing severe issues.
Things to Watch Out For
First Sign of an Issue with a Drain or Septic System
You should monitor your system on a regular basis to spot early warning signs of a septic system problem.
- Gurgling toilets
- Slow draining toilets
- Bad smells
- Poop flowing over toilet
- Pooling water in the lawn
- Overly healthy lawn
Tips for a Healthy Sewer System
Don't use garbage disposals for:
- Coffee grounds
- Fruit pits
- Potato peels
Things you should not put in a septic tank:
- Feminine products
- Paper/shop towels
- Wipes of any kind
Things you should do for a septic tank:
- Chemicals grow bacteria and help break down solids
- Pump (every 1-2 years) before solids flow into drain field - saves you thousands of dollars
Signs of a Leak
- Pools of water
- Wall discoloration
- Sheetrock bubbling
- Low water pressure
- Increase in your water bill
- Mold & mildew
- Foul odor
Leaks are unpredictable and finding the issue can take hours or days to find, but even then, we cannot guarantee that the outcome has resolved the problem completely.
There are several different types of blockages that develop in household drains. Our plumbers use a combination of tools including; snakes, hydro-jetters, and mobile video cameras, as well as acidic chemicals to destroy dirt and debris clogging your pipes. Clogs are unpredictable but we are here to help you find the resolution.
Water Heater Change Out Pricing
*These prices are removing the unit and installing the same type of water heater
**If additional adjustments are needed to fit new unit, price will adjust accordingly
***If going from tank to tankless, price will adjust accordingly
A tankless water heater is more expensive, but it lasts longer (10-15 years) and saves up to 50% of the energy cost that a tanked water heater consumes. A tankless water heater gives you efficiency over the long term.

"Doug’s repair was incredible!! We had a problem with our septic tank the day before thanksgiving and had called over 13 other companies. Doug’s repair was super helpful and immediately offered to come help us even though we were an hour away. Ron and Riven diagnosed both problems and fixed it that day! We are so grateful for their hard work and due diligence, and would highly recommend them!"
