The Most Common Plumbing Problems in San Antonio

October 30, 2019 | Blog

No matter where your home is, it is going to have plumbing problems at some point or another. However, every city is going to have unique problems due to differences in terrain and municipal water regulations. Here are some of the most common plumbing problems we come across in San Antonio:

Slab Leaks

Slab leaks occur when the pipes underneath your home’s foundation break or start leaking, causing significant damage to your home. Slab leaks are common in San Antonio due to the high number of homes built on concrete foundations and the significant amount of older homes in the area. Slab leaks are difficult to detect, but if you begin noticing wet carpet or warped floors, higher water bills and lower water pressure, you may want to call us to schedule a slab leak detection appointment.

Leaking Pipes

Leaking pipes are a common problem in any metropolitan city, but in San Antonio, they are often caused high water pressure. They don’t call this area the Hill Country for nothing. Because of the hills, the city of San Antonio has to pump water at a higher pressure so that it is able to reach structures at the tops of hills or at the top of high rises and other tall buildings. This high pressure can cause wear and tear on your pipes. Other causes include foundation shifts, corrosions (typically in older homes) and tree roots wrapping around pipes.

Hard Water

San Antonio is notorious for its hard water. Hard water forms when it goes through limestone and other mineral deposits. San Antonio’s large limestone deposits mean we’re working with some pretty hard water. While hard water isn’t bad for your health, it will stain your bathroom and kitchen surfaces with unsightly, difficult-to-remove white deposits. It can also dry your skin and cause build up in your hair. If you’re tired of dealing with all the problems that come with hard water, we offer expert water softener system installation services.

Roberta C.

Very Knowledgeable

I recently had several plumbing leaks repaired and couldn’t be happier with the prompt service I received from Parker and Sons. They are very knowledgeable, friendly, reasonably priced, and do quality work. I would definitely recommend them to my family and everyone. I would trust them to repair any leak in the house.

Stacey C.

Amazing Service!!!

Amazing service!!! Called and came the same day within 2 hrs. Our toilet had to be re-fitted and snaked. They did a beautiful job on the re-fitting and got the large piece of plastic out of the toilet. Will definitely be recommending them to friends and family. Great service, great people, hard to find these days!!!

Shakira C.

Excellent Service!

Excellent Service! We had some work done on our kitchen and Parker and Sons were able to come out to our house and help us with our remodel. Great guys and great service. I would recommend them to anyone needing a plumber service.

Brad B.

Great to Work With

Jim and his guys are great to work with. Had Parker & Sons come out to take a look at an AC unit at one of my rental properties. Unit is in the attic. Had to replace a coil on it and did a great job. Will definitely use again.

Jeff C.

Amazing Staff!

I have referred Parker and Sons to all of my customers and I would not think of referring anybody else. They have been great and very punctual. All of the plumbers and office staff have been amazing!

Miguel B.

Reasonable Prices

I was in good hands today with journeyman plumber Mark Rizley. He remained until all was better than before. He replaced a PRV and improved a mediocre repair recently done by another well known local company. The price remained reasonable despite the extra effort needed for the job. Well done Mark! Parker and Sons will be my first call in the future.

Todd D.

Fantastic Company!

This is a fantastic company with outstanding professionalism, quality of work, and customer service. While their prices are extremely competitive, their work doesn’t feel cheap like some of the companies you can hire of off Craigslist or on a FB yard sale page. This is a reputable company with proven work and licensed, skilled technicians.

Fair Prices & Excellent Work

Have used Parker & Sons 3 different times, once for a huge complex plumbing repair and twice for smaller jobs. Fair prices and excellent work/fast response time every time.
