What are common plumbing service needs in Fremont?
Some of the most common plumbing needs and service calls in Fremont and the Tri-City area include water heater repair and installation, drain cleaning, and pipe repair. If you think about it, this isn’t surprising: every home has a water heater, so repair, maintenance, and installation calls are relatively common for our team. Similarly, drains are a key component of indoor plumbing, and clogged drains and toilets are a regular occurrence for most homeowners.
That brings us to pipe repair: while Fremont does have some new development, there are many neighborhoods in the East Bay that were built in the 50s, 60s, and 70s or even earlier. For homeowners in such properties, their existing pipes and plumbing are beginning to age. As such, we see more pipe repair and pipe replacement calls coming in here in Fremont.
How do you know when you need plumbing repair?
Some plumbing problems are immediately apparent. For example, when your water heater stops working and you can’t take a hot shower that morning, you’ll know you need to call a plumber. Other issues may be harder to notice, such as a water heater pressure-relief valve that is stuck and not discharging properly. Here are a few tips for determining when you need to take action:
- Trust your gut: If something feels off about your water heater, your pipes, or your drains, don’t ignore your instincts. Follow up with a plumber. Homeowners are often very adept at noticing slight disruptions to their routine or changes in their home, such as slightly discolored water coming from the tap that may be an indicator of corrosion inside of their water heater.
- Establish good maintenance habits: At ABC, we recommend you flush your water heater and check its pressure-relief valve at least once per year. This kind of preventative maintenance can not only prevent problems, but also give you a heads-up when you need to call in a plumber.
Why call us for your plumbing service needs?
Here are just a few of the positive qualities that set ABC Cooling, Heating & Plumbing apart from other plumbing service companies here in the Bay Area:
Experienced, friendly plumbers
Trust us: your home’s pipes and plumbing are not things you want to leave to an beginner plumber who is on their first job. In contrast, the plumbers at ABC are experienced, trained professionals who take pride in their work, service, and craftsmanship. When an ABC service vehicle arrives at your home, you can have confidence that the plumber inside is ready to address your home’s plumbing needs and get the job done right.

We’re a service-oriented company that exists to help you and your home with your plumbing needs.

When you hire us, you deserve the peace of mind that comes with bringing a true plumbing professional onto the project. That’s what our guarantees bring you and your home.
What plumbing repairs should you avoid doing yourself?
In today’s day and age, many homeowners feel empowered by online videos and tutorials, and are tackling more of their home’s maintenance and repair needs themselves.
For the most part, this is a positive development: homeowners who are aware of their home’s maintenance and upkeep needs are going to prevent some plumbing issues from developing in the first place. However, there are certain plumbing projects that should be left to a professional. Here’s why:
- Training: Even the most comprehensive of online tutorials is no substitute for the years of training and real-world experience that each of our plumbers have. Your home’s plumbing is a critical component of life in your home. Plumbing repairs are best left to professionals.
- Tools: Even if you feel comfortable with how to do something, you may not have the right, specialized tools to complete the job, and it may not make sense to invest in those tools. Alternatively, completing the plumbing project with the wrong tools could lead to disaster.
- Time: For busy homeowners, dealing with your home’s plumbing issues is a distraction from everything else you do on a daily basis: work, spending time with your kids, eating, and sleeping. DIY plumbing projects often turn into multi-day affairs, which is just that much longer you have to go without a working water heater or garbage disposal.
In general, we recommend calling a plumber for nearly all of your home’s repair needs. But, you should especially consider bringing in a professional when dealing with your pipes, water heater, or gas lines, as these represent areas of high risk.
