At Done Plumbing, Heating, and Electric, we have 20+ years of experience dealing with plumbing problems of all kinds. Here are a few common plumbing problems we see in Denver and Aurora, Colorado.

Leaky Pipes and Faucets  

A leaky pipe or faucet may seem like no big deal, until you get your water bill! What seems like a small drip can make a big impact on your monthly bill and leave you frustrated. At Done Plumbing, Heating, and Electric, we have the equipment and training to quickly identify leaks and stop them at the source.

The average homeowner can often repair a leaky faucet on their own by simply replacing an O-ring. If this fails to solve the problem, it may be time to have a professional take a look. However, leaking pipes can be a little more difficult to identify and repair. We use state-of-the-art equipment to identify the leak and use our years of experience to determine the best method of repair. If you think there is a leak in your home’s plumbing system, call the Colorado plumbing experts at Done Plumbing, Heating, and Electric.

Broken Water Heater

If you and your family are stuck taking cold showers, it’s time to call the pros. At Done Plumbing, we are prepared to repair, maintain, or install water heaters throughout Denver, Aurora, Arvada, and the surrounding area. Without consistent hot water, showers, cleaning, and washing dishes can be inconvenient and very uncomfortable. Our team of Colorado plumbing experts is here to get your water heater back up and running as quickly as possible. Before you are completely without hot water, there are many signs that your water heater is failing that are important to pay attention to. Is your water brown or rust-colored? Is your water heater making a loud rumbling noise? Is there water pooling around your water heater? These are all signs that something is not working properly within your water heater. If you notice any of these signs, get in touch with the Colorado plumbing pros at Done Plumbing, Heating, and Electric right away.

Garbage Disposal Problems

You don’t realize how often you use your garbage disposal until it stops working. Without a properly working garbage disposal, you could be left cleaning out soggy food from your sink drains. Avoid this unpleasant job by calling Done Plumbing, Heating, and Electric. Our Colorado plumbing team has specialized training to make garbage disposal repairs a breeze. If your garbage disposal has broken gears or blades, a burnt-out motor, or your disposal is not draining, it’s time to have an expert take a look. Many homeowners in the Denver and Aurora area try to repair the garbage disposal on their own, not realizing what a complex mechanism it can be. DIY plumbing repairs can often lead to more issues down the road and prolonged problems. For complete garbage disposal repair, contact us today!

Clogged Drains

If not handled right away, a slow or clogged drain can make a nasty mess and even become a health hazard.

Just one slow drain within your home is not always cause for alarm. Slow moving drains can be caused by foreign objects, such as hair, soap scum, or food. These items can build up in the drain over time, causing your sink, tub, or shower to drain slowly. Slow moving drains can often be repaired by homeowners by routinely cleaning out the drain. You can also invest in stoppers that are designed to keep hair and other objects from making their way down the drain.

However, if you notice multiple slow or clogged drains throughout the house, this could be a sign that something is seriously wrong. It is important to have a plumbing professional on-site as quickly as possible to determine the root of the problem. After a thorough investigation, our highly trained plumbers will determine the best repair method and discuss our solution with you. Once we have your go-ahead, we will work quickly and carefully to eliminate the problem and ensure that things are operating as they should.

Sump Pump Failure

Another common Colorado plumbing issue is sump pump failure. A sump pump is vital for keeping water away from the foundation of your home. Melting snow or heavy rain can cause a great deal of damage if you don’t have a sump pump redirecting the water away from your home. If you, like most homeowners, are unsure of how to maintain or repair your home’s sump pump, call our experienced team today!

In our 24 years’ of experience, we have discovered that sump pumps always break down at the worst time. If you find yourself with rising water and a broken sump pump, call Done at (833) 539-9153 right away. Our master plumbers will be at your property as quickly as possible to assess the situation and make the necessary repairs. We have experience working with all types of sump pumps, including basement sump pumps, battery operated sump pumps, sewer ejector pumps, and more.
