Backflow Plumbing Services

Some local municipalities will require a backflow regulator to be installed at each cross-connection point within a plumbing system. These regulations typically are found at apartment complexes, condominiums, restaurants, and other commercial facilities. Backflow happens when wastewater reverses direction in a plumbing system and is forced back out into the main water supply. Installing a backflow regulator at your property can save you money on fines, keep your family and tenants safe, and allow you to comply with local regulations. We perform the following backflow services.  

  • Backflow Testing
    Backflow valves must be tested regularly to ensure that they are working properly and that you stay in compliance with local standards. We offer backflow testing services in Vista and the surrounding areas. 
  • Backflow Prevention Installation
    A backflow prevention device is installed between the cross-connection points in your plumbing system to prevent the reverse flow of wastewater. We perform backflow prevention installations all throughout Northern San Diego County. 
  • Quality Work
    Choosing a quality plumber to perform your backflow plumbing service is very important – it can affect your health! We have many years of experience performing backflow testing and installation services.

Camera Inspections

Plumbing camera inspection technology allows for a simple and effective way to properly diagnose plumbing problems. A camera inspection is performed with a piece of equipment known as a plumbing video camera. The camera is attached to a drain snake-type device and fed into the plumbing pipe. The plumber, watching the live video feed from the camera, is easily able to identify drain clogs deep within the plumbing system and to locate where there might be a pipe break. This saves you time and money by properly diagnosing your plumbing issue upfront without having to test and repeat. Here are some of the common reasons our customers get plumbing video camera inspections:

  • Lost Items
    When you drop something like an engagement ring down the shower drain, it is enough to make you scream! Do not fret! A plumbing camera inspection will do the trick! With our video technology, we can locate your ring and help you retrieve it quickly!
  • Home Inspections
    When prospective homeowners are getting ready to make a major purchase, it is important to ensure that the plumbing systems in your new home are working properly. A great way to inspect a home’s plumbing pipes is with a video camera inspection!
  • Deep Drain Clogs
    Have a drain clog that cannot be removed with a plumber’s snake or by hand? Sometimes debris builds up in your drains and causes a clog deep within the plumbing system. In these cases, a plumbing camera is perfect to identify the location of the clog so it can be removed quickly!

Our non-invasive and waterproof plumbing video camera equipment allows our customers to save both time and money when diagnosing a major plumbing problem. We have many years of experience deploying plumbing cameras to properly diagnose issues and get them resolved for our customers. Interested in another plumbing service? Check out our other services!

Whether you need an existing gas line repaired or you are looking to run a new gas line at your home or business, we can handle your needs.

Garbage Disposals

Garbage disposals are a modern household convenience that we do not pay much attention to until they break. A clogged or broken garbage disposal can create quite a plumbing problem too! Our technicians are highly experienced in repairing garbage disposals, replacing old garbage disposals, and clearing garbage disposal clogs. Garbage disposals can become damaged when non-food items enter the disposal. Here are some of the ways to prevent a clogged or broken garbage disposal:

  • Make Sure It’s Running
    Before you put food in the garbage disposal, make sure the faucet is on and the garbage disposal is already running. Also, make sure you only run cold water into the disposal to prevent the motor from overheating.
  • Avoid Stringy Foods
    Try to avoid putting stringing foods, like lemons or celery, into the garbage disposal. Stringy foods and starchy food, like potato peels, cannot be broken down properly by the disposal and can break the garbage disposal.
  • Avoid Rice & Pasta
    Foods like rice and pasta expand when they come in contact with water and can lead to clogs in your garbage disposal. It is always best to avoid these types of foods when using your garbage disposal.

If you have a very old garbage disposal that keeps breaking, it might be time to replace your disposal with a new garbage disposal. On the other hand, you might just need a simple repair to your existing unit. We are experts in repairing broken or clogged garbage disposals. Call us today or check out our other services.

Repiping Service

Thinking about a repiping service for your house? Plumbing pipes are manufactured to last a long time – sometimes upwards of 75 years! Constant flushing and regular household use can cause your pipes to corrode over time. And sometimes, sudden changes in pressure or outside forces, like tree roots, can cause your pipes to crack. Fixing your pipes can be expensive when you do not hire the right repiping plumber. We specialize in single repipes and whole-house repipes. Some of the common types of piping we install includes:

  • PVC
    PVC pipes are generally used for sink drain lines, toilet drain lines, bathtub drain lines, vent lines, main water supply lines, and sewer lines.
  • PEX
    PEX piping is generally used for water supply lines. It is very flexible tubing that can weave between walls and crawl spaces. It can also be used in radiant floor heating.
  • Copper
    Copper pipes are generally used for water supply lines and refrigerant lines. They offer excellent corrosion resistance and are very safe for water supply.

At Water Wise Plumbing, Backflow, and Drains, we have many years of experience providing repiping services to North San Diego County homeowners. In fact, we are the repiping plumber that Northern San Diego County homeowners rely on to repair and replace their plumbing pipes. We know thinking about repiping your house can seem daunting, do not worry, we can guide you through the process and explain your options! We also offer financing!

Sewer Line Repair

Have a damaged or cracked sewer line? You might need a sewer line plumber to help you repair your broken sewer pipes. A cracked sewer line can cause serious health risks when not addressed properly, and it can be quite costly if you do not hire a sewer plumber with experience. When a sewer line fails, your best bet is to repair the existing sewer line. If the sewer pipe cannot be repaired, a sewer line replacement is the next option. At Water Wise Plumbing, we have the knowledge, certifications, and experience to handle all of your sewer line repair needs! Some common causes of sewer line damage include:

  • Tree Roots
    Sewer lines buried beneath your yard are perfect targets for tree roots. The moisture or water from a slightly cracked sewer line attracts the tree roots and they grow into the sewer line. Over time the tree roots will crush or crack the sewer line and lead to a failure in the pipe. When you hear gurgling noises coming from your toilets, this is an indication that you have a sewer line failure.
  • Corrosion
    Over time, sediment buildup inside your plumbing pipes and sewer pipes can lead to corrosion. This corrosion weakens the pipe and can cause it to crack or fail.
  • Wear and Tear
    Constant use from toilet flushing puts a strain on your sewer lines. Although sewer pipes are designed to last many years, this constant wear and tear can cause the pipes to fail. Also when certain forbidden things, like women’s hygiene products, are flushed down the toilet, it can cause a clog in the sewer line.

At Water Wise Plumbing, Backflow, and Drain, our sewer line repair experts have the experience to repair your sewer lines quickly. Whether you have a standard clog between your toilet and the sewer line, or you have a more serious issue, like a crushed sewer pipe, we can diagnose and fix the problem! Contact us today to schedule a sewer line service!

Slab Leaks

If your home has plumbing buried in the concrete slab foundation, you might be prone to a slab leak. A slab leak is a leak in the water pipes beneath your home, specifically the pipes buried below the concrete slab. Slab leaks are very costly when not addressed immediately. Slab leaks are a pain. You need to dig up the concrete to repair or replace the piping. We are slab leak experts in North San Diego County. No matter the difficulty of the task, we will always provide the proper solution to get your water back on as soon as possible. Here are some common signs that you might have a slab leak:

  • High Water Bills
    If you notice your water bills rising, you could have a slab leak. Usually, slab leaks are hard to detect because they are hidden water leaks beneath your home’s foundation. A great indicator of a slab leak is excess water usage caused by the leaking pipe.
  • Floor Hot Spots
    When a hot water pipe bursts beneath your floor, you might feel hot spots when walking around your home. If you’re ever barefoot and feel warm spots on your floor, you might want to call a plumber to detect if you have a slab leak!
  • Low Water Pressure
    Low water pressure is another great indication of any type of water leak – including a slab leak! When you have a water leak, it can cause a depressurized situation in your pipes and lead to low pressure at other faucets and spigots.

Normal wear and tear and corrosion in your plumbing pipes can lead to pipe failure and leaks. Some other common causes of a slab leak are poor pipe installation, ground shifts, and tree roots. It is important to hire a plumber who specializes in detecting and repairing water leaks. An inexperienced plumber might not identify a leak in the slab because they are normally hidden. Think you have a slab leak? Call us today!

Tankless Water Heaters

A tankless water heater can be a great alternative to a traditional water heater. Tankless heaters take up much less space and can be much more cost-effective when compared to traditional water heater tanks. At Water Wise Plumbing, we have many years of experience installing and repairing tankless water heaters. Here are some benefits of tankless vs. tank water heaters:

  • Energy Efficient
    Due to the way they heat water, tankless water heaters are on average 30% more efficient than traditional heaters and can save families hundreds of dollars per year in utility bill costs.
  • Unlimited Hot Water
    Continual hot water is one of the key benefits of a tankless water heater. Because they do not store water in a tank and heat water on demand, your household will benefit from an unlimited supply of hot water – no matter how many people are showering!
  • Less Space
    An average tankless unit is around 27 inches tall and 18 inches wide. Compared to the traditional tank, which is on average 60 inches tall and 20 inches wide. Tankless heaters are installed on a wall and do not take up floor space like a traditional tanked water heater.

We pride ourselves on educating our customers about the mechanics and benefits of a tankless heater. Tankless heaters typically require a larger investment up front but pay for themselves over time and are much more cost-effective in the long run. Due to the nature of this purchase, we offer fully-financed tankless water heater installations with great financing terms! Tankless heaters typically pay for themselves quickly and have an average life span of 20 years – which is 7 years longer than a traditional water heater.

Water Filtration

Clean drinking water is important to you and your family’s health. Did you know that local tap water can still contain harmful bacteria, contaminants, and other chemicals? Installing a water filtration system is a great to way to filter out these harmful elements from your drinking water so that you and your family are safe. There are three major water filtration technologies on the market. We are experts at installing and repairing all three. Here they are…

  • Activated Carbon
    This is the most common and least expensive option on the market. Activated carbon systems get installed under your sink and have a cartridge filter that needs to be replaced regularly. 
  • Cation Exchange
    These are also referred to as ion-exchange filters or water softeners and work by infusing positive ions into your water system that attract the negative, harmful ions from the water system. 
  • Reverse Osmosis
    This is the most effective and most expensive water filtration system. In reverse osmosis, the water is forced through pressure across a membrane filter that removes harmful bacteria and chemicals from your drinking water. 

Installing a water filtration system at your home is a great way to become healthier and protect your family. We understand this can be a big investment and decision, so we are here to educate you and help you explore your options. Interested in water filtration systems? Contact us today!

Water Heater Repair & Installation

Did you run out of hot water in your home? If so, it could be your water heater! When a water heater is not working it upsets the entire household. And water heaters can break for a variety of reasons: corrosion, leaks, sediment build up, leaking gas line, and more! We have been repairing and installing water heaters for many years all throughout San Diego County. Here are some common water heater repairs we perform:

  • No Hot Water
    No hot water in your home? It might be your water heater’s thermostat! All water heaters have a thermostat, and when it goes bad, it can affect the temperature in the tank. No hot water could also be a variety of other water heater problems.
  • Rumbling Sounds
    Over time, sediment starts to build-up in the bottom of your water heater tank. When the water starts to heat, the sediment can cause it to boil. The rumbling noises you hear are caused by the boiling water and an indication you might need a water heater service!
  • Water Heater Leak
    Do you see water pooling at the base of your water heater tank? This could be a sign that you have a leak! It could just be a simple connection that needs to be tightened, or it could mean corrosion or something worse. It’s best to get your tank looked at by a plumbing professional in San Diego.

Did you know that we also offer new hot water heater installations? The average water heater has a life span of 12 years according to Lowe’s. The life span of your heater could even be shorter depending on your household’s use. If you have a large family or have been using your water heater for many years, it might be time to replace it! Did you know that we offer fully-financed water heater installations? Contact us today!

Water Leaks

At Water Wise Plumbing, Backflow, and Drains we’re here to serve the needs of our Vista homeowner and small business owner customers. Nothing is worse than getting a serious water leak or even a minor leak. We are experts at identifying the source of your water leak and repairing it quickly. We specialize in faucet leaks, showerhead leaks, slab leaks, pipe leaks, toilet leaks, and more! If at-home water leak fixes aren’t working, we can also help you repair or replace your broken piping. Here are some common causes of water leaks in San Diego:

  • Broken Seals
    Seals around your water connections can wear out over time and be a source of water leaks. You can find seals in dishwashers, showers, and other home appliances.
  • Temperature Swings
    Drastic temperature swings will cause your plumbing pipes to expand and contrast. This constant stress on your pipes over time and cause the pipes to break or loosen at the joints.
  • High Water Pressure
    High water pressure can put undue stress on your pipes and can lead to water leaks. If you notice a sudden change in water pressure, either positive or negative, call us today for a diagnosis!

When you have a water leak, it is important to contact a professional plumber to properly diagnose and fix your leak. One of the most common calls we get is for a “water leak my home”. If you have a visible water leak or you think you might have a hidden water leak, contact us today!

Water Softeners

At Water Wise Plumbing, Backflow, and Drains, we offer repair and installation services for water softeners and water filtration systems. Water softeners can deliver many benefits to your home’s water system. When installed properly water softeners remove minerals, like calcium and magnesium from hard water to give you softer laundry, cleaner dishes, and healthier skin. These are some of the top benefits of a home water softener system:

  • Softer, Healthier Skin
    By removing the “hard” aspects of water, a water softener helps to remove the negative aspects water can have on your skin and hair. Hard water can irritate your skin, leave it dry, and even leave a residue film on your hair. After installing a water softener, you will notice a change in the feel of your skin and hair.
  • Lower Energy Bill
    A water softener will great improve the efficiency of your water heater, so you will use less energy heating water for baths and showers.
  • Softer Laundry
    Hard water can leave your clothes and laundry feeling stiff and dry. Softer water is void of minerals like calcium that can leave your laundry feeling stiff. Your washing machine will also be more efficient with softer water, and it will even require less laundry detergent!

Did you know that roughly 85% of American households have “hard” water. In those homes, minerals like calcium and magnesium are present in the water supply making it “hard”. Installing a water softener has many health and comfort benefits. In addition to installing new water softener systems in San Diego County, we also have the expertise to repair your existing softener or water filtration system. Did you know we also offer financing on new water softener installations? Contact us today for a quote!
