  • Clogged drains - Regardless of its specific function, any drain can be clogged. Our HydroScrub® drain cleaner will effectively utilize water pressure to clear out everything.

  • Frozen pipes - When the electricity goes out during winter, the water can freeze and burst your pipes. This is many homeowners’ nightmare. Luckily, with our speedy answering service, the emergency can be rectified quickly.
  • Broken shut-off valves – We can replace leaky or stuck shut-valves swiftly. Though rarely used, these valves are crucial. You should shut off the water line completely during leaks and floods.

  • Jammed garbage disposals – When something gets stuck in the disposal, it can stop working. Our specialists have the tools and skills to fix garbage disposal emergencies.
  • Sump pump repair – Sump pumps remove water from basements during heavy storms. Before the next storm floods everything, schedule a proactive maintenance service.
  • Faucet issues – This is the most common plumbing problem. Drips, leaks, loose handles, and broken components may warrant repairs or replacements.
  • Shower repairs – We can repair all types of showers and tubs: steam showers, digital showers, traditional showers, and clawfoot bathtubs, to name a few.
  • Pipe leaks –These leaks often emerge at the joints. Our equipment and expertise can handle any type of pipework. If the leak requires reconnecting water supply lines, replacing worn out fittings, and/or sealing bolts and valves, we have solutions.
  • Malfunctioning water heaters –Water heaters can experience many problems, including inconsistent temperatures, insufficient amounts of hot water, or not heating the water at all. Fortunately, we have versatile experience with conventional, tankless and hybrid units. We can also fix hot water leaks that often occur in pressure relief or drain valves. Replacing caps, resetting temperature controls, and clearing mineral deposits is sometimes all it takes.

Seasonal Plumbing Maintenance

The heat in San Marcos can sometimes be unforgiving. With 323 sunny days and an average summer temperature of 95.5 degrees Fahrenheit, the area is prone to warmer days, which can take a significant toll on your plumbing. Before the blistering heat rolls in, it’s crucial to have your plumbing system inspected and repaired by a Mr. Rooter Plumbing professional. We can ensure your pipes are protected against the following weather-related issues common in our area.

  • Leaky Pipes - Leaking pipes aren’t solely a winter problem; they are also common during warmer months. There are various reasons why pipe leaks occur, including high water pressure, foundation shifts (which are extremely common in Texas), and overgrown tree roots. Increased water usage also has a lot to do with a rise in pipe leaks during the summer. Water rushing through pipelines at high speeds increases the chances of burst pipes—an extremely costly repair. One way to help combat this is to be mindful of your water usage in the summer and make sure faucets and hoses are completely shut off.
  • Sun Damage -& UV rays beating down on your exposed pipes can put significant wear and tear on your plumbing. San Marcos systems are very susceptible to sun damage, which is why it’s essential to invest in defensive tools to preserve your pipes long-term. Some protective products for your pipes include: latex or water-based acrylic paint and insulation around pipes. You may notice severe damage, such as cracks or broken sections in your pipes, which requires immediate attention from a professional. Our team at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of San Marcos is ready to assist you.
  • Social Gatherings - Summer is the time for get-togethers, barbeques, and all the quintessential activities you’re used to that probably involve food. However, eventually, the food will get old and need to be thrown out. Many people are unaware that certain foods shouldn’t be discarded down the garbage disposal, as they can cause serious clogs that require a professional’s help. Routine maintenance by our San Marcos plumbers can mitigate obstructions and keep your pipes clear.
To keep your system functioning correctly during peak summer days, we recommend allowing us to perform routine maintenance services at your home or business to anticipate issues before they occur.
