Residential Plumbing Services
Your home’s plumbing can present a number of issues, and keeping your pipes maintained is the best way to guard against leaks, low water pressure, and other problems. When it comes to residential plumbing, Spartan can take care of your supply lines, drains, sewers, and more. If your water heater is on its last legs, or you want to update to a tankless model, we can provide installation in a timely manner.
When it comes to residential plumbing, there are a number of things that you may need done. No matter what’s happening with your pipes, our team has the knowledge and expertise to get the job done right.
Perhaps there isn’t one particular plumbing issue that’s causing problems in your home. However, you have noticed that your water pressure isn’t what it once was, or maybe you’re having trouble getting the hot water to work every time. If that’s the case, then we can conduct an inspection of your plumbing and provide general repairs where you need them most. If there’s a leak under a sink or a loose pipe that’s causing problems, then we’ll take care of it right away. Learn more about our plumbing repair options and contact us today to schedule a service appointment!
It goes without saying that your bathroom is very important when it comes to residential plumbing. You use the bathroom every single day, and whether you’re standing at the sink, taking a shower, or using the toilet, you need your pipes to work properly. If you’ve been noticing issues with the plumbing, or you want to remodel your bathroom, then we can help. We can provide new plumbing for an updated sink and vanity area, and we can install the pipes for that new shower or tub that you’ve had your eye on for several years.
We’ll work with you on figuring out the best design for your bathroom’s new supply and drain lines. The main purpose is for the plumbing to be functional, but we also want it to be comfortable and easy to use, without the frustrations of low water pressure or poor water temperature. If you’re thinking about updating one or several of the bathrooms in your home, then we’d love to work with you!
When it comes to kitchen plumbing, you need reliable faucets and drains, just as you do in the bathroom. You may also need a reliable garbage disposal and dishwasher, both of which can make life much easier and more convenient. At Spartan, we understand the frustration that can come with a kitchen sink that’s backed up or a garbage disposal that doesn’t work correctly.
Our plumbers can remedy any kitchen pipe problem, from drains that won’t empty to faucets that leak. If you’ve been planning a kitchen remodel, and you want to add things like an island sink or move the dishwasher to a new location, then we can handle those tasks as well. We’ll help you come up with the ideal design and then execute it to perfection. Before you know it, you’ll have the kitchen you’ve always wanted!
Depending on how old your home is, the pipes behind the walls and under the floors may be anywhere from just a few years old to having been in place for decades. The older your pipes are, the more chance there is for unseen problems such as leaks and breaks. If you have galvanized pipes in your home, then there could be mineral buildup inside your plumbing that’s causing issues such as decreased water pressure and temperature.
Our repiping services consist of two options — copper plumbing and PEX plumbing. Both offer distinct advantages over galvanized piping, and we can help you decide which one is right for your home. Copper will last for a very long time, and PEX offers flexibility in tight spots and is very easy to install.
No homeowner likes to think about their sewer line too much, but it’s important to know when there may be a problem with it. If you ever notice an odor coming from your toilets, sinks, or drains, or there’s a low, wet spot in your yard, then please contact us right away. The sooner we can identify the sewer problem, the sooner we can remedy it!
Sewer Camera Inspections & Sewer Line Locating
The fastest way to get up close and personal with your sewer line is through a professional sewer camera inspection. Equipped with the latest technology, our team can send a camera down your sewer to see where the problem lies. There might be a blockage that’s causing the line to back up, or tree roots may have invaded the old deteriorating pipe, causing it to disintegrate. With sewer pipe locating, it allows us to electronically locate and pinpoint the issue or problem area quickly followed by recommending the necessary repairs. Locating the sewer line also gives you the knowledge of knowing where your sewer is located and the depth of it on your property.
Sewer Line Repair and Replacement
Once a sewer problem has been identified, you’ll likely want to have it solved as soon as possible. If the entire line needs to be replaced, then we can get it done quickly through the use of trenchless sewer replacement. This means that we won’t need to dig up your yard or disturb your landscaping. The new sewer line will be installed inside the existing pipe, and we’ll make sure everything is connected properly, both to your home’s plumbing and to the city sewer pipe.
One of the biggest plumbing challenges that any homeowner can face is a clogged or blocked drain. You rely on your drains to carry wastewater into the sewer line, but hair, food, and other obstructions can cause all sorts of problems. Household drain cleaners can sometimes help, but they may not be effective enough to clear the clog completely. Only with professional drain cleaning can you feel confident that the blockage has been thoroughly removed and that it won’t cause any more problems.
High-Pressure Water Jetting
When you’re having drain problems, one of the best ways to clear a clog is through high-pressure water jetting. Also known as “hydro jetting,” this process involves the application of water at high pressure, which should cut through any sludge, grease, or whatever it is that’s blocking the drain or sewer line. We’ll insert the hose through the pipe cleanout access, and while controlling the flow of water, keep the pressure going until any blockage has been cleared. If everything goes as planned, then you should have a drain that works in no time!
Perhaps you’re looking at a new home and you want to be sure that the plumbing is in good shape. You’ve given everything the eye test yourself, and you checked that the faucets and taps worked when you viewed the property. However, you want to make sure there are no problems lurking behind the walls, and with a professional home plumbing inspection from us, you can be alerted of any potential issues. We’ll give you a rundown of everything that we find, and you can use that list when making your decision on whether to buy the house, or when you’re negotiating your final purchase price.
Your water heater is an integral part of your home’s plumbing, and when something goes wrong with it, you tend to notice right away. When the water in the shower turns ice-cold, or you can’t get hot water out of the kitchen faucet, you know that there very well could be an issue with your water heater. At Spartan, we can provide expert water heater repair at a moment’s notice, because we know that you can’t wait until the next day to have hot water for your home. You need to be able to clean your clothes, your dishes, and yourself, and until the water heater is working properly, you have to put everything on hold.
Common Water Heater Problems
There are a number of common water heater problems that can plague your appliance. If there’s no hot water anywhere in the house, then the heating element in the tank may have gone out. There could also be an issue with the pilot control valve or the thermocouple. If your water heater tank seems to be making a lot of noise, then the problem could be sediment in the bottom of the tank. This sediment is being heated up when the appliance is on, which can create popping and crackling noises as it burns, so it’s important to drain and flush the water heater as soon as possible.
If you notice a leak around the base of your water heater, then make sure you call us right away. The leak is likely from corrosion at the bottom of the tank, and it’s likely only a matter of time before the bottom gives out and your utility room is flooded with water. By contacting us and having your water heater replaced, you can avoid this risk!
Types of Water Heaters
Our team knows how to install every type of water heater, from conventional models to tankless options. If you currently have an electric water heater but want to replace it with a gas model, then we’ll make sure everything is installed and connected correctly. Should you have questions about tankless or “on-demand” models, then we can provide the answers and information you need to make the best decision for your home.
Aquor House Hydrants
One product that we’re particularly proud to offer to the people of Tacoma is the Aquor house hydrant. This alternative to the traditional outdoor hose bibb and spigot is a great choice for anyone who loves to garden or grow flowers during the spring and summer. The hose attaches quickly and easily whenever you need water, and you won’t have to worry about the hydrant freezing during the winter, since it self-drains every single time. The system always has pressure, so you’ll have an outdoor water supply whenever you need it!

Commercial Plumbing Services
If you’re a business owner, your building’s plumbing may be used by multiple people every single day. The sinks in your break rooms and bathrooms need to work properly, and toilets have to be operational 24 hours a day. If your building has shower facilities, such as those in industrial settings, you want to be sure the supply and drain lines are clear. If a commercial plumbing issue pops up, we’ll be there to take care of it as soon as possible.
Updating Your Building
As a business owner, you want to provide your employees and customers with a certain level of comfort when it comes to the plumbing in your building. If you only have one bathroom for employees, then you may consider updating the pipes and adding a second one. If customers and employees have to use the same restroom, then it could be very good for business to add a second room that caters only to your clientele.
Your plumbing needs are going to be different depending on what type of business you own. For a restaurant, you need faucets, sinks, and drains that you can rely on every single day. When there’s a plumbing problem, it means that your business isn’t running as efficiently as it needs to be. Our team can install new supply and drain lines that keep your kitchen operating smoothly.
For offices, your plumbing issues may stem from the number of people that are in the building on a daily basis. You might have hundreds of employees, not to mention the clients who visit regularly. This means that your facilities are being used on an almost constant basis, and without the proper upkeep, you could end up with serious plumbing problems. We can take care of any clogs or leaks that threaten to impact the comfort and convenience of your office building.
At Spartan, we’re dedicated to providing the very best service to every single customer. If there’s an issue that stumps us, we won’t stop working until we find a solution. If you have a plumbing emergency, we’re available 24/7 to take your call. Above all, we want you to feel confident that you made the right choice in contacting us to take care of your pipes.
