Common Plumbing Repairs in Des Moines

Most cities have the same kinds of plumbing problems, no matter what type of weather they have. For example, dripping faucets happen from coast to coast. However, Des Moines has its own kinds of plumbing problems stemming from our climate. We got 33 inches of snow a year, which is 5 inches more than the national average. With winter temperatures falling below freezing, frozen pipes are a huge issue. Additionally, our summers tend to be pretty humid, which, paired with a leaky pipe, can create the perfect environment for mold and mildew. Not only can we repair these types of local plumbing issues, but we can fix problems that happen no matter the time or the temperature.

We can fix all the following common types of plumbing problems and more:

  • Slow drains
  • Clogged drains
  • Clogged toilets
  • Running toilets
  • Low water pressure
  • Jammed garbage disposal
  • Leaky pipes
  • Frozen pipes
  • Sewer system backups
  • Water line issues
  • Broken water heater
  • Broken gas line
  • Backflow prevention device issues
  • Sump pump repair

What Is a Sump Pump and How Does It Work?

We can find sump pumps throughout Des Moines in basements and crawlspaces citywide. The city also gets around 36 inches of rain a year, which can cause flooding in basements with no working sump pumps. Sump pumps are small pumps installed in lower parts of a house or building that tend to flood during heavy rainfall. For example, a basement without a sump pump can flood quickly, causing water damage issues and health issues stemming from mold growth. Water damage is costly to repair, so having a sump pump in your home or business is a guard against flooding and moisture.

Sump pumps work by detecting the presence of water and activating. The pump uses centrifugal force to move water out of the area, through a discharge pipe, and outside, keeping water from settling into a basement or a crawlspace.

If your sump pump isn’t working, or if you need it inspected, give our sump pump repair team a call. We provide sump pump services in addition to plumbing maintenance, so your plumbing system lasts longer.
