High Water Pressure
High water pressure can cause a lot of problems. Everything from dripping faucets or toilets that will not shut off, to shortened water heater life, to burst pipes or washing machine hoses. Learn more about how we can help with high water pressure issues in your home.
High Water Bill
Most water meters have a small red triangle on them that will turn when the slightest amount of water moves thru the meter. If the triangle moves with no water running the house, this indicates leaking pipes somewhere.
To determine if the leak is inside or outside your home, locate the emergency shut off (if accessible) where the water line first enters the house. Shut off the valve and observe the meter again. If the triangle continues to turn then the leak is between the meter and the house. If the triangle does not continue to turn then the leak is inside. Inside- One or two dripping faucets or a toilet that runs can add a lot to your water bill each month. Outside- A hole 1/32 of an inch in a pipe at 60 lbs of pressure will leak 6000 gallons a month.
If you have a dripping faucet constantly, high water pressure or worn parts could be the cause. Don't let dripping faucets run up your water bill, we can repair faucet leaks in one visit!
Pipe Joint Leaks
Water line leaks can be difficult to locate and repair. The leak is not always where the water shows up. There several ways to fix pipe leaks. One of our trained plumbers will evaluate your situation and determine the best repair for your pipe leak.
Private Sewage Disposal
This consists of a septic tank and field line (leach field). The waste from your house goes into the tank (usually a 1000 gallon capacity). Solids are broken down by bacteria and the water enters the field line for dispersal. The septic tank should be pumped every 3-5 years. This keeps any solids not broken down from entering the field lines and clogging them.
With today’s use of so many anti-bacterial products people are having more septic system problems, because they also kill the good bacteria in the tank. Regular use of BioOne, our all natural bacteria and enzyme product available at Ventura County Plumbing and Rooter, will help keep your septic system in proper working order.
Washing Machine Hoses
According to State Farm Insurance, burst washing machine hoses are the number one cause of water damage.
Replacing the rubber hoses with stainless steel braided hoses will virtually eliminate the chance of this happening. Also, stainless steel hoses do not need to be replaced every 3-5 years as recommended for rubber hoses.

Repiping Sewer and Water Lines
Inside or outside your home, we have the knowledge and equipment to re-pipe water or sewer lines and bring them back to perfect. We provide trenchless replacement and sewer replacement as well.
Water lines — If your home has galvanized water lines, over time the flow of water will become restricted by the buildup of lime and calcium on the inside of the pipe. This will decrease the volume of water available to use more than one fixture at a time. For example, your water pressure would be low if you tried to take a shower and run the dishwasher at the same time.
Sewer Lines — Having to clear a clog in a sewer line more than once a year is just treating a symptom of a bigger problem. The problem could be a broken pipe or roots in the line. In either case, we have the equipment to see inside the pipes and determine the exact problem. Remember perfect plumbing does not stop up.
