Fixing Broken Pipes and Water Leaks
If you ever spot broken pipe warning signs — fluctuating water pressure, unusually high water bills, puddles under sinks, mold problems, or smelly water — the ideal thing to do is to get a quick and professional fix. Even the smallest water leak can quickly transition into a disaster if left unchecked, as it could damage your home's walls, floors and ceilings, along with causing high utility bills.

As a modern homeowner, you want to remodel your home to revamp its look, a project that's likely to change your kitchen or bathroom and plumbing fixtures. Getting professional plumbing help from Shane Elmore Plumbing means you'll do less as the expert hands deal with the heavy lifting and delicate residential plumbing installations. Besides, you can count on our experience to secure modern appliances or plumbing fixtures, get the job done right and ensure your project follows the local building codes.
Sewer Installation and Repair
Sewer and water lines are crucial to keep homes clean and comfortable; unfortunately, they're susceptible to normal wear and damage from outside forces such as tree roots. A damaged sewer line can cause a backup, an unpleasant mess, clogged drains, and foul odor and if left unattended, it could result in water damage and mold infestation. We offer professional sewer line installation services in new homes, and for homes with old, leaking or broken sewer lines, we can perform customized repair or replacement services.
Shane Elmore Plumbing professionals install and fix all makes and models of toilets. We're available 24/7 for your repair concerns, from running toilets to clogging, weird noises and leak problems. Our plumbers can also help you replace old toilets with efficient dual flush systems that could save you hundreds of dollars in annual water bills.
Residential Plumbing FAQs
Are you looking for answers to your plumbing questions? Explore the FAQ list we've crafted below to find the solutions to your frequently asked residential plumbing questions.
How Often Does My Water Heater Need to Be Flushed?
Consider draining and flushing your tank water heater every six months during spring and autumn. However, we recommend more regular appointments (about four months apart) if you use hard water with high mineral content. Tap water will carry its mineral content into the water heater, this sediment will settle at the bottom of the tank where the heating element is, and your equipment won't be as efficient as it should be.
Flushing out the sediment along with regular tune-ups is imperative to your equipment's efficiency, effectiveness and longevity. We can help with this residential plumbing maintenance service if needed.
When Should I Replace My Water Heater?
The perfect time to replace a tank water heater is if it's old, usually after 10 years. But the type of system you have can affect its life span — for instance, gas water heaters can last eight to 12 years, while their electric counterparts may last between 10 and 15 years.
On the other hand, tankless (i.e., water heaters that produce hot water on demand) could last over 20 years before needing a replacement. Always check your warranty document for specific timeline details.
How Do I Know if My Main Drain Is Clogged?
Common warning signs of a clogged main drain include:
- Slow drainage. All the drains are running unusually slowly, even after a thorough cleaning.
- Backups in various drains. Water is backing up into toilets, sinks, showers and bathtubs at the same time.
- Weird fixture reactions. The toilet gurgles when water flows in the sink, overflows as you run the washing machine or water backs into the shower when you flush the toilet.
- Pungent sewage smell. The sewage backup is visible on the floor drains and has an unpleasant odor.
- Drain flies. These pesky insects have accompanied the sewer water into your home.
Should I Get a Tankless Water Heater?
A tankless water heater is perfect for your hot water needs if you're looking for a long-term investment. It's energy efficient, uses less space, has a longer useful life and has lower leaking risks than the tank water heater. Although the initial cost may be high, this system will ultimately give you value for your money.
