Western NC Plumbing Maintenance and Repairs
Leaking toilets can cause high water bills and keep you up at night with the constant running. We can rebuild your toilet and get it working like new. Older toilets often use 3-5 gallons per flush, we can replace it with a water efficient 1.6 gallons (or less) per flush toilet. Saving you money and helping the environment in the long run.
Winterizing your home is very important here in North Carolina if you are going to be away for the winter months. When pipes freeze they can burst and flood your home causing extensive and costly damage. We will come and make sure your plumbing system is protected from freezing, giving you peace of mind. We are also able to charge your system when you return in the spring.
Frozen pipes will often keep your water from running normally to the house and may even cause your pipes to burst. Call Above & Below Plumbing to inspect your plumbing system for proper insulation and ensure that you are protected from the cold winters before it becomes an emergency.
Hose Facet / Spigot
Often time people forget to disconnect their hose during the winter. This will cause the faucet to freeze and bust inside the wall. Most people don’t notice until they turn their hose faucet on in the spring and water starts spraying out of the wall. This is normally a simple replacement and often can be done within an hour.
Whether it’s a sink, toilet, shower, or main sewer line, we can get it cleared out and draining like it should. If there’s a problem with the actual pipes we are licensed plumbers with the knowledge to fix the problem. If the pipes are not properly fixed the problem could reoccur. Typical drain cleaning companies are not licensed to repair pipes.
Weather you have a slow drip or a fixture is falling apart, we can advise you if repairing or replacing is your best option. Many fixtures can be repaired and have a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty. New fixtures are often more water efficient and will pay off in the long run. We are able to provide or recommend quality products for all of your plumbing needs.
Water leaks in your home can cause major damage and quickly add up on your water bill. Our technicians are experts in diagnosing the problem and are well versed in all types of piping to get your leaks repaired quickly and correctly.
Pressure Reducing Valve
In the mountains we can get water pressure in excess of 200 psi (pounds per square inch). This high water pressure needs to be reduced in order for your water system to continue to work properly. This can also damage your fixtures and often causes the pressure relief valve on your water heater to leak. Low water pressure, dripping shower valve, and toilet running can all be an indication that your pressure reducing valve needs to be inspected and/or replaced.
