Residential Plumber & Earthworks Company Serving Greater Seattle

How can we help you?

24/7 Emergency service

If you have clog in your sink, shower, or toilet that cannot wait until the morning to address, make us your first phone call. We’re available 24/7 to get the water and sewage flowing in the right direction.

Blocked or Clogged Drains

Drain cleaning is the first step. We use either a cable machine or hydro-jetter to remove the blockage. We can then complete an inspection to determine the cause of the issue and recommend appropriate preventative maintenance or required sewer repair.

Sewer & Waterline Repairs

Water lines tend to burst and crack when not buried deep, but the main cause of needing a water line replacement is the material pipe. This results in pools of water around the home and a very high-water bill. Feel free to give us a call to determine  if the waterline is the issue.

We specialize in doing it right the first time.

We understand that dealing with clogged and slow drains is not fun, and repairing your side sewer can be disruptive to your life and landscaping.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is drain cleaning?

    Drain cleaning is either preventative maintenance or an emergency. Typically drain cleaning would fall under emergency services, but it can go multiple ways. The homeowner is most likely calling/dealing with a backed-up sink, shower, and sewer line. Drain cleaning is the first step of getting the backup or blockage removed. We either use a cable machine that augers through obstructions or a hydro-jetter that uses high pressured water to flush out debris in the line causing the backup. Once we get the blockage removed we follow up with a camera inspection to see the cause of the issue to provide them with a permanent fix, such as a sewer repair.

  • How do I know if I need a Sewer Repair?

    The common cause of needing a sewer repair is when the pipe joints start to corrode and separate allowing intrusion from roots and other debris to form, which can cause a restriction of flow and or obstruction. Settling soil will also cause the separation of pipes that will require a sewer repair. When maintenance is no longer applicable, repairing the sewer line tends to be the more cost-effective route and sometimes the only route to getting your sewer fully functioning again. Sewer repair is the only way to remove tree roots, fix a bad slope and repair any major structural damages.

  • Why does my water line need replacement?

    Water lines tend to burst and crack when not buried deep, people sometimes break them while gardening. But the main cause of needing a water line replacement is the material pipe. The materials used in the last 100 years are nothing like the pipes we have today. The pipes we have now can withstand very cold temperatures, handle very intense heat, and are more durable. People even notice changes to water quality when they have an issue. They see pools of water but usually, they see a very high water bill. That is when they call us for a water line replacement.
