Water Heater Repair and Installation

Issues related to your water heater are no joke. After all, your household relies on your water heater every day for hot showers.

There are a few telltale signs that your water heater needs repair or replacement. Keep an eye out for:

  • Rust or odor
  • Rumbling, popping, or whining noises
  • Leaking water
  • No hot water coming from your faucet

Hot water heaters are meant to last, on average, between 8 and 12 years. With routine maintenance and servicing, you might stretch that to 20 years.

If it’s time for water heater installation, VP Plumbing can service your installation. Whether you want a conventional electric or natural gas tank water heater, a solar water heater, or a tankless water heater, our team can install it efficiently and correctly.

Call us today for water heater repair and installation!

Sump Pump Maintenance and Installation

If there’s any way to protect your home against water damage, it’s having a working sump pump. Sump pumps remove water that has accumulated in the sump basin, protecting the basement against ground water and rain.

Routine maintenance is the best way to ensure your sump pump is ready to handle a big storm. A local plumber can make sure your pump mechanism is working properly and that your emergency battery is functioning as well.

VP Plumbing in Ames specializes in sump pump maintenance and installation, so give us a call today for service!

It’s time for service or installation if your toilet is experiencing any of these issues:

  • Clogs at least once a week
  • Only flushes minimally
  • Toilet bowl doesn’t refill after flushing

Garbage Disposal Repair and Replacement

A malfunctioning garbage disposal can spell all sorts of trouble for your residential plumbing system.

Consider these signs to determine whether your garbage disposal needs repair or replacement:

  • It clogs
  • You have to reset it continually
  • The blades are ineffective
  • You can’t remove odors

If you’re already replacing your kitchen sink or dishwasher, then it’s a great time to update your garbage disposal as well.

Interior Water and Sewer Piping Services

A home is only as functional as its interior water and piping systems. Don’t risk any major sewage line breaks due to lack of maintenance or working with an inexperienced plumber.

Instead, contact our Top Rated Local® Plumber in Ames today!
