Every home poses its own unique plumbing challenges which continue to change over the years. That means we have to understand your home individually and perform repairs and upgrades that suit your family’s needs. In addition to providing routine plumbing care such as unclogging drains and repairing pipes, many plumbers are problem solvers and idea people who can add new features to and solve problems in your home. At Schroeder Plumbing in Mesa, AZ, our plumbers take pride in their extensive skills and have intelligent approaches to solving your everyday issues and emergency plumbing calls. We know that thinking through a plumbing solution provides the most effective, lasting results. Our years of experience also provide us with insight that’s helpful when you’ve got a design idea for your kitchen, bathroom, or other space and want to hear some practical ways it can be implemented. Plumbing is a key part of your home’s functioning and features, and we’re here to make it reliable, practical, and enjoyable for you and your family.
Resolving Water Quality Issues
Water quality problems can be surprisingly complicated, arising from water supply issues much of the time, but not exclusively. Sometimes, groundwater quality can change, affecting well water, and public water supply sources can vary depending on factors such as rainfall and seasonal issues. Some cities and towns source water from nearby rivers, lakes, reservoirs, and wells, providing a varying mix. Our plumbers can install a variety of equipment to help stabilize your water quality and raise it even higher than standard local water supplies, removing minerals that are part of the hard water problem, and filtering out other contaminants as well. Water softeners, activated carbon systems, cation exchange filters, and reverse osmosis or RO systems are all available depending on your home’s needs. Water quality solutions, especially water softeners, can help prevent or delay certain plumbing issues including pipe corrosion and water heater tank corrosion.
Style, functionality, and technology are all great motivators for having our plumbers update your plumbing fixtures. Modern graceful faucet styles can also provide greater access for filling water bottles and washing hands without reaching into the sink. Paddle-style control instead of twist-style knobs add convenience, and touchless electronic faucet control is both convenient and hygienic, and also water-conserving as it supplies water when you need it, pausing for you to lather and return to rinse. For those who typically let the water flow for convenience, the water savings can be considerable. Newer faucet mechanisms also help save water and avoid frequent faucet maintenance without water-wasting leaks, especially from the hot water side.
Renovating Bathrooms and Kitchens
People often underestimate the lifestyle effects of a bathroom or kitchen renovation. In the bathroom, a more comfortable and convenient shower can start the day with more energy, and make it easier to wash with today’s broad showerheads. Pedestal sinks and other modern styles update the look of your bathroom, while modern toilets help conserve water and avoid clogs with improved flushing technology. Built-in bidet options are also available, for a bit of luxury and convenience during the day. Don’t forget one of the favorite luxury upgrades, wonderful on a winter morning or when the AC is on strong: a heated bathroom floor.
Drain Cleaning to Prevent Surprise Backups
If you’ve been wondering why certain sinks seem to back up frequently, or you have surprising plumbing problems like a sink backs up when you flush a nearby toilet, you may have accumulated material throughout your drain pipes that needs clearing. This keeps your home’s drains all flowing smoothly, down the secondary pipes and all the way to your sewer line. Our drain cleaning service brings an expert plumber to clear out your wastewater lines from top to bottom, using a variety of technologies from snake and auger to high-pressure hydro jet technology, depending on pipe condition. To check where the clogs are worst and review your pipe’s condition as well, we use tiny video inspection gear that can travel down the pipes to identify plumbing issues.
Replumbing to Solve Leaks and Pipe Damage
Every few decades, many homes need some pipe replacement, and often repiping to replace decaying, damaged, or corroding pipes. These are fairly common projects for our plumbers, and we have techniques that help complete the job with minimal impact and time spent. The benefit is clear: with reliable pipes you have fewer clogs, and also little or no leaks that would otherwise be costly to locate and repair, and would also cause extensive damage to your home.
Creative Sewer Solutions
Our video inspection cameras provide us with the ability to explore your sewer line, in response to drain backups that may indicate sewer trouble, or as a periodic inspection. Plumbers can locate any issues that may also show as rich growth above the sewer line or foul smells, catching tree root intrusions, and crushing damage from heavy equipment above or soil shifting. We can also identify sewer line weakening that is likely to result in damage in the near future. Since we can see what problems exist and where they are located, we have options in addition to full sewer pipe replacement, options that usually provide similar longevity. Using modern materials and technology, we can reline the pipe or deliver patch material and long-lasting epoxy to some types of damage, saving time and trouble and often cost as well.
