Consider Your Sugar Land Plumbing Needs

Few household systems are more vital than your plumbing. When any problems arise with your household plumbing or need new installations or repairs, only call trustworthy plumbers.

Before you embark on finding a plumber, it’s important to consider just what sort of services you will need before you start looking. Not all contractors offer the same array of services or can handle your specific situation.

Take note of what sort of plumbing issues you’re dealing with. Is it an annoying annoyance squeaky faucet? Or are your issues much more serious, like broken or bent pipes in your shower? The more you can understand what’s going on and what you need, the better. After all, you will need to describe your plumbing problems as best you can so you can find a plumber that will work with you.

Higher Sugar Land Plumbing Services Skill Sets

The skillset and type of plumber you need can depend greatly on the task. Are you renovating your bathroom? The Sugar Land plumber you get in touch with for renovations and remodeling will be a lot different from the contractor you consider when you’re having an absolute emergency. It’s not all just pipes to them.

Budget-Friendly Plumbers

You’ll also want to consider your budget. How much you can afford and are willing to spend will determine who can work with you. It is often helpful to write down your budget and repair needs long before doing your homework on your local plumbers in Sugar Land, TX.

Ask Your Neighbors and Friends in Sugar Land, but don't forget the research.

And when we say ask around, we don’t mean just relying on word of mouth. It can help to talk to your friends and neighbors and find out who they hired for their last major plumbing job and see who they recommend.

But it can be constructive to ask the plumbers themselves. Call local contractors and ask them about their business.  How quickly do they pick up the phone? Are they BBB accredited? What are their plumbing reviews like? Make a note of the plumbing contractors who you feel good about hiring.

And when you are ready to make a selection, take a note of your repair needs, what you have been researching, and what people are saying about specific plumbers. Then talk to the plumbers who mesh well with all of the above. Once you consider your needs and the plumbers themselves, making a quality plumbing choice in Sugar Land can be simple.

If yours isn't working the way it should, a well pump repair or replacement service can help identify the problem and solution.

Sugar Land Plumbing FAQs

A properly running plumbing system is essential in your home.  But problems do happen.  When they do it is important that you handle them immediately or you could end up with a larger issue that will end up being more costly.  To help our Sugar Land neighbors, we have assembled this list of frequently asked questions.  If you are looking for more in-depth answers, or check out our blog.

Are you a licensed plumbing contractor? 

Howell Services is fully licensed, insured, and bonded.  As local plumbers, we have been helping our neighbors in Sugar Land for years with licensed and experienced plumbing professionals.

Do you warranty your work?

Our work is 100% satisfaction guaranteed.  If you are not completely satisfied, let us know.  We will send out one of our experts to make the necessary repairs, with no added cost to you.

Can you repair the plumbing in my rental properties?

We certainly can. We regularly provide plumbing services in rental homes in Sugar Land and the surrounding communities.  We assess the problem and can contact you with the diagnosis and provide options for remedying the problem.

What could be causing my high water bills?

If your water bill is suddenly higher than average, this is usually a sign of a leak somewhere in your home. Each person in your home uses about 80 to 100 gallons of water each day. If the consumption noted on your water bill is considerably higher, this is probably indicative of a leak in your plumbing system.

To check for a leak, start by checking your toilets, faucets, hot water heater, and appliances.

Your problem could be an outside plumbing fixture or sprinkler head. It is essential that you have a licensed plumber check your home’s pipes beneath the ground. If not fixed, these “slab leaks” can damage your foundation, causing a larger problem.

Should I use Liquid Plumber or Drano to clear my plumbing?

We recommend that you DO NOT use these products as the chemicals they contain can cause more costly problems in your drain and on your pipes.  A plunger should do the job.  If not, or if you have more than one clog, there may be a larger problem.  Call Howell Services and we will handle your clog for you. 

Why do I keep seeing pebbles in my water?

If you have tinted water or notice small pebbles, several things could be causing your dirty water. Old metal pipes corrode over time, pushing the debris into your water supply. It could also be caused by sediment in your water heater. 

Diagnosing a plumbing problem is best left to a licensed plumber. Howell Services has licensed, insured, and bonded plumbing professionals that are here to help you. Even if you discover a problem after hours, give us a call to identify and solve your plumbing issues in Sugar Land and the surrounding communities.

Do I have to wait forever for hot water

There are several different options for a Fort Bend homeowner that is tired of watching cold water run down the drain while waiting for hot water to arrive each morning. Our most popular system can be installed in about an hour that will allow the recirculation of hot water between the hot water tank and the far end of the home.

I own rental properties, can you fix plumbing for my tenants?

Definitely, and if you are too busy to meet me at the property I'll be glad to call you with a diagnosis and several different options for repair.
I constantly run out of hot water. It is common for older water heaters to become so full of collected sediment that it reduces the amount of water that can be heated in the tank. If your water heater is more than eight years old it would be best to consider replacing the unit.

I need a new toilet, what kind should I get?

With today’s technology, the options for a new toilet are endless. For a toilet replacement, we offer free estimates. The average price for a Toilet replacement ranges from $550 – $800 depending on the brand and model the client picks out.

My disposal is not working, or it is humming and not grinding?

To try to repair your disposal, first turn off the disposal. Open the cabinet door under the sink, and on the underside of the disposal near the outer edge is a reset button, push it in. This will reset the unit. Next, take the disposal key (an Allen wrench left with the unit at final plumbing) and look on the underside of the disposal directly in the middle. There should be a slot that the wrench fits into. Turn the wrench whichever way it will turn; this usually dislodges anything stuck in it. You won’t loosen or tighten anything that is a free-spinning fitting. Turn on the water and then the power to the disposal. This should free anything jammed in the disposal. If you are still experiencing problems, call us at 281-232-5292 for service. We can unplug or take apart the unit for our standard service fee.

How do I know if I need a new hot water tank?

If your hot water tank is 10 years old or older it is not very efficient, and you should consider replacing it. When your tank is gurgling or popping, sediment has built up and it is only a matter of time before it leaks. When the temperature is not consistent, the components may be worn out and it is a good time to change it. Consider replacing your hot water tank with a 98% efficient on-demand heater.
