When Should You Replace Your Water Heater?
No homeowner wants to hear that their water heater needs to be replaced. For many homeowners, it’s an expense that is unwanted. However, in many cases, water heater replacements are necessary. For example, did you know that water heaters between the ages of 10-15 years old start to lose efficiency in the home? At this point, you will notice rising energy bills. Additionally, older water heaters experience more frequent breakdowns and malfunctions requiring water heater repair service.
The Plumbing Dr makes water heater replacement services easy and affordable. We work with the best brands in the industry, offering the most efficient and modern operation. Call us today and find out how a new water heater installation can help save you money and prevent future repairs.
When Will You Need Professional Drain Cleaning?
Professional drain cleaning is a fantastic way to keep your pipes healthy and your drains from clogging. It is a good idea to have them regularly cleaned as a preventative measure, but it also solves many common problems that homeowners have with their pipes.
For example, recurring clogs, standing water, and sewer odors are all indicative of a larger problem. These cannot be solved by dumping grocery store chemicals down the drain; professionals have access to more powerful chemicals and a wider variety of cleaning methods that are also safer on your drains. For instance, hydrojetting is a popular method among plumbers that use high-volume water to push debris completely out of a piping system.

Signs You Need to Repair or Replace Your Gas Line
It is imperative to keep your gas line completely healthy. If it becomes broken and is left undetected, you may be left with a gas leak in your home. To prevent this, watch for the warning signs of a broken gas line. Dying vegetation in a single spot of the lawn indicates an underground gas line leak. Damaged connections to gas appliances are signs of problems within the line. The rotten-egg smell associated with natural gas pumped into homes is the surest sign of a gas leak that needs immediate attention. If a gas leak is already present, leave the property immediately and call us for repair right away.

Light in shining armour
Karen - Great Falls, VA
I called several plumbing companies and for 3 days, due to the snow, no one could make it. I hadn't had water for 3 days by that point. My neighbor suggested plumbing doctor, they came in the afternoon as promised and fixed it speedily. The plumber was also very pleasant and patient since my kids had pretty much turned the house into a yarn obstacle course. I will use this plumbing service again
Bill - Great Falls, VA
Showed up 4 hours late (they were courtesy to call and say they would be late, but could not give me an updated time, gave me the option of rescheduling for another day?). VERY EXPENSIVE for a 20 minute repair job.
Ridiculous pricing structure

We called Plumber Dr for our sewage ejector leak issue. They came in twice to inspect the situation and recommended more cost-effective approach to solve the problem. They only charged us one inspection fee as described from the 1st phone call, very professional and honest people.
Good service, poor communication.
Joseph - Great Falls, VA
My understanding was that there would be a service fee and that the technician would give me an estimate before proceeding with the work. No estimate was offered or given. Since it was such a quick repair I assumed it was being covered by the service fee. My expectation then was a $68 bill. What I received was a $163 bill. Now, he did do the work and he did a nice job. We were just lucky that the bill was not higher. I will probably not take this risk again.
