Recommended Frequency for Septic System Inspection2024-01-27T08:21:25+00:00

In San Diego, it’s advisable to inspect and pump your septic system at least every three to four years. Regular inspections prevent solids from entering and clogging the drain field, which can lead to costly repairs.

Adjusting Hot Water Temperature for Efficiency2024-01-27T08:20:55+00:00

Can Water Heaters Be Repaired or Must They Always Be Replaced?2024-01-27T08:17:40+00:00

Many water heater issues can be repaired. However, if your heater is old or the repair cost is high, Wave Plumbing can advise on whether a replacement is more economical for your San Diego home.

How to Prevent Rust in Plumbing Pipes?2024-01-27T08:17:04+00:00

To prevent rust in pipes, ensure proper water treatment and regular maintenance checks. In San Diego’s climate, using water softeners and inspecting pipes for early signs of corrosion can help.

In a plumbing emergency, shut off the main water valve immediately and call Wave Plumbing. We offer prompt emergency services in San Diego to address issues like major leaks or burst pipes quickly.

How Often Should I Service My Plumbing System?2024-01-27T08:15:49+00:00

High Water Bills but No Visible Leaks: What’s the Cause?2024-01-27T08:13:57+00:00

In San Diego, if you’re experiencing high water bills without obvious leaks, it’s wise to check for a hidden toilet leak. Test this by adding food coloring to the tank; if the bowl water changes color within 15 minutes, it’s time to replace the ball or flapper.
