Sump Pump Repair

Springtime means rain and more rain for Iowans! It’s a good idea to invest in a sump pump so that when we are faced with inclement weather, we are prepared. Flooding is a very real hazard for homeowners throughout Central Iowa, and if your home is in a flood zone you could have a very serious problem on your hands.

One of the most common mistakes people make in regards to their sump pump is giving it too little attention. Regular preventive maintenance should be done on your sump pump to keep it in good operating condition. It is much wiser to schedule regular maintenance than just assuming it’s working fine and discover otherwise when it comes time to use it. If you do discover during maintenance or at any other time, that you are in need of sump pump repairs, our team is the one you can trust to do the job right.

Did You Know?

Des Moines residents can save on a new sump pump system installation (only new installs). Called the “Private Property Protection” program. 

The City will reimburse 100% of the cost to property owners who meet the program requirements. The maximum subsidy amount is $1,500. The reimbursement will be paid to the property owner.

Sump Pump

We're In the Know About Water Flow.

A sump pump is your home’s last line of defense against flood damage. That makes it one of the most important pieces of plumbing equipment in your home.

Obviously, nobody likes waking up to a basement full of water. If you live in an area with heavy rainfall, a sump pump can be a godsend. But what happens when your trusty ol’ pump stops working? When it’s time for a replacement, it’s important to know what you’re getting into, cost-wise.

If your sump pump has been damaged or fallen into disrepair, your Home Comfort Heroes at Service Legends can help. We can repair, maintain or replace and install any sump pump on the market, and most repairs take just one visit to your home to complete.

Water Heaters

Water heater giving you a cool reception?

Water heaters work hard to provide hot water to your home’s taps and appliances. The minerals in the Des Moines area’s hard water can create sediment buildup that can wreak havoc on your plumbing fixture’s performance.

If you’re experiencing water heating issues or aren’t sure when your system was last checked, contact Service Legends for a check-up, repair, replacement or installation. With hundreds of parts in stock, what we call our “warehouse on wheels,” we’re ready to provide quick, friendly, and professional service to get your water heater back up and running. Whether you have an electric or gas water heater, we’ve got you covered.

Tanks or no tanks?

Traditional tank water heaters heat and store large amounts of water. They’re significantly less expensive but more costly in operation. Tankless water heaters instantly heat water on demand, making them much more efficient and they’re space-saving – meaning with no tank, they take up less space than traditional hot water heaters with a tank. While tankless water heaters cost more upfront, you’ll enjoy cheaper energy bills in the long run, and they last about twice as long too.

So, if your water heater has you in a hot mess, give us a call today.

Water Treatment

Water hard? We're easy.

Service Legends is the easy solution for hard water. Here’s what you need to know. The Des Moines area’s water is hard, and that means higher concentrations of calcium and magnesium which create water spots and residue you can see and feel. When your home has hard water, you need more soap or detergent to get things clean. Plus, the minerals can build up residue in your home’s water heater raising heating costs, reducing the efficiency of electric water heaters, and clogging pipes.

There are two ways to treat hard water: water softeners and water filtration. Many of our customers opt for both. Here’s why.

Water Softeners

A water softener is simply a hard water filter that removes calcium and magnesium minerals that are the causes of hard water. By eliminating excess calcium and magnesium from water, softeners can boost the efficiency of your water-using appliances and help you save on cleaning supplies. Not only are you likely to see cleaner dishes and coffee pots, but your whole family may see less-irritated, more-hydrated skin and hair as well.

Water softeners use salt to modify the properties of water removing those hardness ions or changing the way that they interact with surfaces. In contrast, water filtration systems can use any of several methods to make water cleaner and safer depending on the contaminants being filtered.

Water Filtration System

Water filters provide better-tasting, cleaner water by removing a wider array of contaminants like dirt, sand, sediment, fluoride, pesticides, iron, sulfur, and chlorine. A drinking-water filtration system like a reverse-osmosis system reduces issues like dissolved solids and contaminants in your drinking water. Many water treatment systems use multi-stage filtration to first remove sediment and then filter out other contaminants, including chlorine, that affect water taste and quality.

A whole-home filtration system addresses water quality and water flow throughout your entire home. These systems are designed to reduce sediment, chlorine, and other contaminants, leaving you with cleaner, safer, fresher-tasting water and decreasing acidity in water that can corrode plumbing fixtures and appliances.

Whole-Home Repiping

Our Peeps Know Pipes.

Service Legends is committed to handling all your PEX piping and copper piping requests with the highest level of quality and professionalism. Fully licensed and insured to get the job done, the trained team also employs the latest technologies. This provides us with the ability to tackle every job promptly and proficiently.

We’re Water Flow Pros

These are the primary reasons our customers opted for a whole-house repipe:

Pipe & Slab Leaks

Have you had water leaks? If you suspect you have leaking pipes, or if you’ve been told you have a leak, you may have heard the term “slab leak” and “pinhold leak.” When we repipe a home after a slab leak has been identified, we route new piping through ceilings, attics, and walls; bypassing the slabs. 

We’re water flow pros. You’ll never have to worry about a slab-leak again. Complete repipes are guaranteed for life at Service Legends and will give you peace of mind against water leaks.

Preventative Maintenance

Concerns about your old piping? A whole-house repipe is often more affordable than you think. In certain neighborhoods, many of our customers are very familiar with the term ‘repipe’ from friends and neighbors that have already had their home repiped, even though they themselves have not yet experienced any repipe symptoms within their home pipes.

It is common that homes in the same neighborhood will have similar piping: and failures can happen in clusters across many nearby homes over a relatively short time period.

When old (or inferior) pipes fail and cause leaks- the damage can be considerably more expensive than a repipe. Particularly if the leak occurs when no one is home, or if it’s a slow leak that causes significant damage before being noticed (this is a common cause of homes needing very expensive mold remediation).

Low Water Pressure

It can be extremely frustrating rinsing the shampoo out of your hair under a trickling showerhead or waiting forever for a bathtub to fill up.

When low water pressure affects the whole home, it will take longer to wash your dishes, your clothes, and yourself.

There are numerous causes that can affect your home’s water pressure. Sometimes it can be your pressure regulator or a water meter valve partially closed. If mineral or rust buildup is clogging your pipes, a repipe may be your best solution.

However, the cause may also be due to clogged piping: particularly in the case of galvanized pipes. Pipes can develop interior corrosion and buildup which restricts water flow.

To counter the restricted water flow, sometimes homeowners (or plumbers) may increase the entry water pressure at their pressure regulator. This can eventually lead to leaks developing; turning what may have been just an inconvenience, into a source of very expensive damage.

Rusty Or Discolored Water

Rusty pipes are a common issue for homeowners. As faucets are turned on and off, causing the pressure inside the pipes to change repeatedly, it can cause loosened rust to dislodge from the pipe. This discolored water then makes its way through the water supply line into the bathroom and kitchen sinks, bathtubs, showers, and laundry room.

Galvanized pipes are also major culprits for dispensing rust-colored water. And in most cases, this is a systemic issue throughout home pipes. A repipe is usually the best solution for this problem when you have galvanized iron pipes. 

How It Works?

Contact us to set up an initial consultation and free, no-obligation estimate. A professional plumber will visit your home to inspect and review your plumbing, discuss options, and provide you with a fixed-price quote. Upon acceptance of your quote, we will work with your schedule to find a day that works for you to perform your repipe. We will pull any required permits on your behalf. The actual repipe by your repiping team typically takes 1-2 days. We coordinate required inspection and permit sign-offs.

You can rely on our experienced and knowledgeable piping experts at Service Legends to give you a free, detailed, and honest estimate for the services you request. You’ll receive a warm and friendly greeting from our team members when you call for assistance.

This isn’t a gym membership, but we’ll work out all your problems.
