Dependable Gas Line Service & Repair

Gas lines are serious business. No other part of your plumbing system can cause nearly as much damage in the wrong hands, so it’s vital that you find someone to work on yours that you can fully trust.

We rely on heavy duty copper piping for all gas line work, and can also use flameless soldering techniques for applications where an open flame could be a health or safety hazard.

Call us any time for gas line repair, gas leak detection services, gas line installation, or gas line expansions.

Lathrop’s Preferred Water Heater Repair & Installation Team

If your water heater isn’t cooperating like it used to, you’re in the right place. Water heater repair and replacement has been one of our specialty services since day one, and we strive to repair instead of replace whenever it’s feasible.

There are a lot of things that can go wrong with a water heater, and our team has the experience, equipment, and training to handle all of them:

  • Tank and pipe leaks
  • Pilot light issues
  • T&P issues and water pressure issues
  • Stuck valves and bad gaskets
  • Loose heating element bolts and faulty heating elements
  • And more

Unlike other plumbers in Lathrop, our team is fully equipped to handle all types of water heaters, including gas and electric, tanked and tankless.

Common Water Heater Problems

Call us at the first sign of trouble if:

  • Water is not heating, or is heating too slowly
  • Your water overheats
  • Your water pressure drops
  • Your water heater leaks or makes unusual sounds
  • Your hot water appears rusty, discolored, or smelly

Water Heater Flushing

Water heaters need to be flushed every year or two to prevent scale buildup. Without flushing, your hot water heater can quickly clog, lose efficiency, and lose years off its operational life.

The good news is that having your water heater flushed is faster, and more affordable, than you probably expect. Call today to learn more.

New Water Heater Installation

Even the best water heater isn’t designed to last forever. When yours comes to the end of its lifespan, we can help you replace it with a modern, high-efficiency tanked heater that will provide reliable service for years to come. Our relationships with our manufacturers means that you’ll enjoy superior coverage and warranties to help you protect your investment.

We can also help you relocate your water heater, install a higher-throughput gas or electrical line, or switch water heater types. If you need a plumber who can help you determine your home’s hot water heaters and correctly size your next heater, we’re ready to get started.

Tankless Water Heaters are Our Specialty

We are registered Navien service specialists, which means that our team knows Navien tankless water heaters like no one else. These tankless water heaters offer the best balance between performance, longevity, dependability, and price, letting you get more out of your water heater with less upkeep. While a typical tanked water heater might last 8-10 years, Navien Tankless heaters can last 15-20 years or more. Even with higher equipment costs, those savings add up!

We also carry replacement parts that allow us to provide same day or next day service for your Navien tankless heater repair needs, versus 3-4 days that you might get from other plumbers.

Is a Tankless Water Heater Right for Me?

Tankless water heaters are great at providing fast, long-lasting hot water supplies. But there is a limit on how many applications you can run at a time.

Tankless water heaters are great if:

  • Multiple household members want to take showers back-to-back
  • You have an oversized bathtub that is difficult to fill with a normal tank of hot water.
  • Space is at a premium on your property.
  • You already have reliable utility connections.

Sewer Camera Inspections

Problems with your home’s sewer line can show up in unexpected ways throughout your home and yard:

  • Recurring drain clogs or slow drains
  • Unpleasant smells coming from your bathrooms, kitchen, or drains
  • Wet spots on your lawn or landscaping
  • Unusually lush spots in your lawn or landscaping
  • Sinkholes in your landscaping

If you experience any of these issues, a sewer inspection is a great place to start. Our sewer video camera can access the entire run of your main line to find any cracks, clogs, or root invasions. This fast and inexpensive service lets us pinpoint any signs of damage to provide more accurate and helpful options to fully restore your drain line.

Most sewer issues in Lathrop are caused by older sewer lateral lines. Many homes still have older Orangeburg pipes, which are made from wood pulp and tar pitch. While formerly popular, new Orangeburg sewers are no longer installed because even simple maintenance, like sewer jetting, can crack and damage them.

Lathrop is also a very flat area, which means that any unproperly graded sanitary sewers will also be prone to blockages, even if they’re made from higher quality ABS or PVC pipe.

Sewer Repair Services

In the event of sewer damage, our team offers a variety of repair options.

In many cases, the best option is a full trenchless sewer repair. This option works a lot like minimally-invasive surgery: instead of digging up your whole lawn, we dig a significantly smaller access at one end of your sewer line, feed the equipment inside the line, and actually repair it from the inside. This method is often the fastest option, completely restores the sewer line, and disturbs your property the least.

In other cases, a spot repair to a specific section of your sewer lateral may be a better option. We can also provide full trenched sewer repair, which is usually best for shorter lines that can be difficult to repair using trenchless technology.

No matter what sewer repair method works best for your situation, our team will sit down with you to fully explain your options and help you make an informed decision. We work hard to make your sewer repair in Lathrop as easy, seamless, and affordable as possible.

Sewer Jetting

In some cases, if your sewer is merely blocked but otherwise in good condition, we can also offer sewer jetting to remove any built up debris. While this won’t help with a cracked or collapsed sewer line, it’s a great way to add years of life to your current sewer lateral.

Sewer jetting is also one of the most affordable ways to improve sewer performance, so it’s usually our first choice. Sewer jetting can be completed in under and hour and requires little to no excavation, other than accessing your lateral cleanout.

Drain Cleaning Services

Have a clogged drain? That’s no problem at all for our experienced team. Here at Simpson Plumbing, we take pride in completing each job to the best of our ability. Clogged drains lead to standing water and flooding, which then cause mold and rot in your cabinets and floors. So don’t hesitate to call the next time you spot any of the following signs:

  • Standing water
  • Backed up water
  • Slow drains
  • Frequent clogs
  • Multiple clogged drains
  • Bad smells coming from drains
  • Fruit flies around sinks and drains
  • Gurgling sounds

With a variety of equipment—including sewer drain snakes, hydro jetting equipment, and even a 200 foot drain camera—these are some of the options to help clear the drainage problem.

Call us immediately and our plumbers will bring the hydro jetter or rooter to fix the problem while it’s still manageable!

Usually not. A clogged drain can sometimes cause an overflow and damage the surrounding room. A particularly bad clog can also cause pressure build ups in your drains or sewer lines, which can absolutely be a problem. But most clogs won’t cause any long-term damage, even if they sit overnight.
Chemical drain cleaners can cause substantial damage to your pipes by eroding the materials that they’re made out of. Never use that stuff!

We use jetters, augers, enzymatic drain cleaners, and more. Different types of drain clogs benefit from different kinds of equipment, so we come prepared.

How to Prevent Shower Clogs

The most common shower repair call we receive is for clogged drains. The good news is that it’s also the easiest shower issue to prevent:

  1. Install a drain cover or strainer to catch hair, soap scum, and other debris before they can accumulate in the drain pipe.
  2. Regularly clean the drain cover or strainer to remove any trapped debris and prevent buildup.
  3. Avoid washing large amounts of hair down the drain by brushing your hair before showering and using a drain catch to collect any loose strands.
  4. Use a hair-catching tool or drain snake to remove any hair or debris that may have accumulated in the drain pipe.
  5. Limit the use of oily or greasy hair products that can coat the inside of the drain pipe and contribute to clogs.
  6. Flush the drain with hot water periodically to help dissolve soap scum and other residue that may be clinging to the pipe walls.
  7. Consider using a biodegradable enzyme-based drain cleaner regularly to help break down organic matter and prevent clogs.

By following these tips, you can help prevent shower clogs and keep your drainage system functioning smoothly.

Water Leak Detection Services

If a water leak goes undetected, it can cause serious damage to your property. The longer it’s left untreated, the worse (and more expensive) the damage will be. Fortunately, in most cases, it’s fairly easy to tell if you have a water leak on your property.

Common signs of a leak include pools of water forming around your property, mold or mildew growth within your building, unusually expensive water bills, and wet spots forming within your walls or ceiling among other things. What makes matters even worse is that once you notice the signs of a water leak, it’s already too late. Fixing the water damage alone can cost you thousands of dollars,

Need a leak detection in Lathrop? Don’t worry, Simpson Plumbing has you covered. Our team of expert plumbing technicians have spent years honing their craft, and have successfully found and repaired water leaks in countless homes, businesses, and commercial properties across Lathrop and the surrounding area.

We have a variety of techniques at our disposal to quickly and accurately locate leaks while causing as little damage and disruption as possible. We utilize the latest in leak detection technology to streamline the process even further. So, the next time you need a water leak detection in Lathrop and the surrounding area, be sure to give the pro plumbers at Simpson Plumbing a call!

Slab Leak Repair

Out of all the leaks your home can experience, slab leaks might be the worst.

Slab leaks, or leaks that develop beneath your concrete slab, can be difficult to diagnose and fix.

You might be experiencing a slab leak if:

  • Your carpets are inexplicably wet
  • Wooden floors are warping or buckling
  • There are warm spots on your floor
  • You smell mildew or mold
  • Your home’s water pressure has dropped
  • Your home’s water bill has spiked
  • There is water sitting around your foundation

Repairing a slab leak usually involves excavating the broken pipe, which means digging into your concrete foundation. That’s why it’s so important to call a professional for slab leak repair in Lathrop: it can make the difference between a minimally invasive repair that takes a couple of days, or a mess that drags on for weeks.
