Water Heater Installation
Water heaters are an essential component of many homes, and when it comes time for a new one it’s important to get it installed by a qualified professional. Our plumbers are trained and experienced in the installation process, so you can rest assured that your new unit will be set up correctly and functioning properly.
We offer both gas and electric tank based hot water systems for residential homes in Honolulu, Kapolei, and the entire Oahu Island, HI. Whether you’re looking for a 40 gallon water heater or a 50 or 60 gallon tank, our team can help you choose the right option for your home and lifestyle needs.
Homes and businesses on Oahu must have backflow preventers to protect against contamination from wastewater, sewage, and rainwater flowing back into the plumbing system after leaving it. Our plumbers can test and repair your backflow preventers as needed. Having these devices in place is essential for the tropical climate of Oahu. They ensure that only fresh water enters your property, and dangerous toxins don’t make their way back into the pipes.

Sump Pump Installation
A sump pump helps protect a basement or other ground-level area of your home from flood damage and water accumulation. It consists of a motor unit with water-level sensors that allow you to set a desired water level, and it pumps the water away when the level rises. It’s a great investment that can help you avoid costly water damage repairs.
When installing a sump pump, you need to take several factors into account. First, you’ll need to decide where the sump pump will go. It’s best to install it in a pit or basin that sits below the floor of your basement or crawl space. This will help you avoid wasting energy, since the water won’t be moving around as much.
Next, you’ll need to set up a discharge line. This involves running PVC pipes from the sump pump to a location outdoors, where it will flow away from your house. To get the right length of pipe, measure from the sump pump to the discharge union, and then subtract the size of your check valve. Finally, clean off the pump discharge and union, and liberally apply PVC primer and glue.
Once the pipes are in place, you can seal them with caulk to prevent leaks. The discharge pipe can go outside or into a dry well, but you must be sure to position it at a suitable distance from your foundation. Many locales prohibit sump pump discharge into municipal storm drains. You can also connect your sump pump to a sewer system, but this should be done only if it’s permissible in your area.
Sump Pump Repair
If your kitchen sink, bathtub or shower is draining slower than usual or is clogged to the point that water comes up through the floor, it’s time to call in our Honolulu drain cleaning team. Clogged drains can be caused by anything from soap scum and build-up to hair and are a major health hazard for any home. If the issue is not addressed quickly, it can cause flooding and costly damage to your plumbing system.
A sump pump keeps your home’s foundation safe from floods and prevents structural damage to basements, crawl spaces and other areas of the house. These pumps are typically installed in the lowest part of a basement and are either submersible or pedestal style. Our Honolulu plumbers can repair or replace both styles of sump pumps.
A plumbing contractor can install or repair all of your home’s pipes, faucets and fixtures. They can work with water and sewage pipes as well as gas lines, laundry appliances, sump pumps and more. Plumbing contractors are skilled in working behind walls and under floors, making them well suited to handle many plumbing jobs. They’re also able to inspect the structure of your home’s plumbing and make recommendations for repairs. They may be able to handle all your plumbing needs, or they may specialize in specific types of projects, such as remodeling, natural gas line installation and overhead sprinkler systems.
Over time, hair, soap scum, food debris and other materials can accumulate in drains and clog them. This can prevent wastewater from flowing smoothly, leading to slow drains and even sewage backups. Professional plumbers use a variety of tools and techniques to clean and restore clogged plumbing drains, including hydro jetting.
The most effective methods for clearing a single drain depend on the type and severity of the clog. A plunger can work for soft obstructions like hair, a plumber’s snake can scrape or cut a blockage, and a drain auger can break up larger blockages in pipes. For severe clogs, acid cleaners can also be used. These are more powerful and dangerous than store-bought chemical drain cleaners, however, and should only be used by a licensed plumber who is equipped with safety equipment.
A professional plumber may also perform a video drain inspection to assess the condition of your pipes and identify the cause of your clog. Using a waterproof camera, the plumber can examine the interior of your pipes to determine what is causing the clog and how best to resolve it.
If a clog is caused by a foreign object, such as a child’s toy, the plumber can remove it with a cable or pliers. If the clog is caused by a buildup of hardened sediment, the plumber can use a hydro jetting machine to blast away the buildup and scour the interior of the pipe walls. This is particularly useful for large sewer line clogs that affect the entire house or building’s drainage system. Using this method, the plumber can clear all the drains in a house or building and ensure that water flows freely.
