EMERGENCY PLUMBING

Local plumbers are available day or night to get to work immediately.

Plumbing Emergencies Can’t Wait for Office Hours

Some plumbing failures and emergencies require immediate attention. If the only way to stop further damage is to turn off your water supply lines, your building isn’t suitable for use, so a permanent solution needs to be readily available. That’s when you need to call an emergency plumber to get to work right away. Our immediate response dispatch system ensures that a licensed plumber will be on your doorstep shortly. 

A crisis with your plumbing system is a daunting experience for anybody, and not knowing if you’ll be able to get help right away is always a concern. Not for Los Angeles area residents, though. MVP Plumber has a team of local, licensed plumbers who will respond to your call, day or night, to resolve any plumbing problem you may be experiencing.

  2. SHUT OFF THE WATER: Find the main water valve, most likely in your basement, and turn your water off. Our experts can help you find this over the phone if needed.

  • Low water pressure
  • Continual dripping
  • Slow drains
  • Lack of hot water
  • Discolored water

Plumbers must demonstrate their competence as installers of plumbing systems to an official executing board prior to being issued a license. A plumbing code which is technically perfect is valueless if its provisions are not observed and enforced. The issuance of a license by a community specifies that the holder is qualified both theoretically and practically and that their technical knowledge is sufficient to maintain the standards of the code.

Is licensing intended to prevent anyone but a plumber from doing sanitation work? NO… Licensing prohibits the irresponsible, incapable person from endangering the health of your family, neighbors, and community. Any person may do the work who has sufficient knowledge to do it in a safe manner, so long as the Rules and Regulations of the plumbing and sanitation code are observed. However, those wishing to do such work must demonstrate their ability by taking out a license and passing an examination.

Many states require that, like a doctor, nurse, dentist or pharmacist, anyone whose work affects the public health and safety shall have adequate knowledge and training. No one wants a “quack doctor” to treat his family or a “soda clerk” to fill his prescriptions. For precisely the same reasons, one does not want a “handyman” to do work in his home, office, or factory which can adversely affect the health of his family, his employees, or his neighbors.

Done improperly this work would probably need to be rectified at the time the property changed hands which means paying twice for the same work. Additionally, licensed plumbing professionals are held to a certain standard of accountability – meaning they must perform their work correctly or risk being liable for accidents, damages, illnesses, etc. caused by improperly performed jobs – and must often hold some form of bonding or insurance that can help to protect you in the event of something happening.

So, while that small bathroom remodel might seem like a great, inexpensive DIY project, it is probably wisest to spend a little more and make sure a licensed plumbing contractor performs the work.

This is a big one, and it doesn’t necessarily apply to only plumbing. You should never receive a price sight unseen. If a plumber is able to tell you how much something costs before they even look at the problem, I wouldn’t trust the price they gave you.

 

 

Your water heater (especially if it’s electric) definitely influences your electric bill. Electric water heaters are normally 30% of the electric bill. If the water heater is old or you have hardness/poor water quality, it can cause your bill to be much higher than necessary.

 

 

When most people ask for water pressure, they’re really asking for water volume. It could be caused by a number of factors. The street pressure that’s being provided to you might be low. You may be using a well that doesn’t have much water. Maybe you have old pipes that are like clogged arteries. The way to increase volume is to install booster pumps, fix the well situation, or replace the pipe to get rid of the clogged arteries in the plumbing system.

 

 

Depending on what kind of plumbing it is, the most effective way to winterize plumbing is to turn the water off, open the plumbing faucet/valve/etc., and use air to blow the water out of the line. If you don’t use air, then water will likely get stuck in the line, eventually freezing and bursting during the cold weather. That will invalidate all your work.

 

 

Yes. You should do something to grow bacteria in your septic system, because that’s what makes it work.
