Plumbing Service, Repair, Installation & Preventative Maintenance

The most important part of your home usually gets taken for granted until something goes wrong. That’s right – your plumbing system and drains!

Without proper maintenance and needed repairs for small issues like clogged drains, gurgling sounds when you flush the toilet, or weird noises, you could find yourself knee-deep (literally) in expensive repairs or total system replacements.

In addition to our excellent heating and cooling services in Lansdale, PA and the surrounding area, Donnelly’s also provides experienced, qualified plumbing services for everything from water heater installation, to plumbing repairs, to sump pump and well pump repairs and installation, and more.

Water Heater Installation and Replacement

While water heaters are a small part of a home, a properly installed water heater will provide comfort far beyond its cost. A malfunctioning water heater, or one in need of replacement due to age or other issues, can create a very uncomfortable home environment indeed.

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the above, you may need your water heater repaired or a new water heater installed.

At Donnelly’s Plumbing Heating and Cooling, our experienced repair technicians can help you work out exactly what’s gone wrong with your water heater and how to fix it, whether that means a small repair, parts replacement, or a new water heater installation.

Water Softener System Installation

The water that comes into your home has generally gone through a number of changes. It passes through rocks, sand, and strata, picking up minerals like calcium and magnesium along the way. Many municipalities use water treatment facilities that add chlorine to disinfect your water as well.

By the time it comes out of your faucet, you may notice a few of the most common problems caused by hard water: it seems to dry out your hair and skin, your completely-clean dishes still have discoloring spots, and your hair seems limp or oily as mineral buildup gets worse and worse.

There’s definitely a difference between hard water and soft water, and a water softening system could be the difference that makes you feel truly clean and comfortable at home.

If you are concerned about the quality of your water in Lansdale, Pennsylvania or the surrounding area, call Donnelly’s today! We can install a basic water softener system that helps to remove all that mineral buildup from your water, straining out 99% of chemicals.

Not only will your water taste better, you’ll no longer see scale buildup in your shower or bathtub, your skin and hair may soften and need less soap and shampoo, and your plumbing appliances will be able to run more efficiently.

Call Donnelly’s at (215) 855-2014 or contact us online to schedule expert water softener repair, service, or installation today. Interested in learning more about the benefits of water softeners before you commit? Just check out our water softener installation page.

Burst Pipes, Flooding, and Other Serious Plumbing Repairs

In Pennsylvania, winterproofing should be at the top of your list when it comes to preventative maintenance for your plumbing system. Even the best winterproofing can’t prevent every single instance of a burst pipe, however, and all that water finding its water out of the pipes and into your home could cause serious and expensive problems if not dealt with immediately.

Whether you’re looking for help properly winterproofing your home or you’re frantically trying to repair a burst pipe, Donnelly’s Plumbing Heating and Cooling is on-hand to help.

Wondering what to do if a pipe bursts? First, turn off the main water supply to your home to stop the flooding from getting any worse. Secondly, minimize damage by collecting water in pots and pans if you can and turn off the power to your home to avoid potential electric shock. Finally, call Donnelly’s to come out and provide emergency repairs to get your home back to normal!

Another serious concern for many homeowners in our area is flooding in the basement, whether due to heavy rain, burst pipes, or other plumbing issues. When there’s water in the basement, you definitely don’t want to wait to call for help! Even if you plan to head down to take a look yourself, be sure to shut down the electricity to your home first to avoid electric shock!

Call Donnelly’s Plumbing Heating and Cooling for emergency repair in the case of water in the basement or a burst pipe flooding your home. You can often prevent these problems through careful winterproofing before the thermostat drops below freezing. If you need some advice on how to winterproof your pipes, give Donnelly’s a call at (215) 855-2014 or contact us online at any time to schedule service!

Sump Pump Repair and Replacement

Not every home needs a sump pump, but a surprising number of homes that should have one don’t. Without a sump pump on-hand, any water that gets into your basement or home could create serious problems before you can get it removed.

With a sump pump, you’ll have an option that allows you to take action while waiting for an experienced technician to arrive.

Whether you already have a sump pump and you’re looking for reassurance that it’s ready to take on whatever the weather throws at it, you’ve been dealing with sump pump problems that need repair, or you’re looking to replace your sump pump, Donnelly’s can help!

Learn more about sump pumps
Q. How can I tell if my sump pump is/isn’t working?

A. You can run water into the pit (which could take a long time) or you can lift up the float on the pump to manually start it.

Q. How often should my sump pump be serviced?

A. Some manufacturers recommend having it looked at yearly. Others say every few months. We can take a look at yours and recommend a maintenance schedule.

Q. How long do sump pumps usually last?

A. This really depends on how often it runs. And that is affected by where you live and the level of the water table around your home. Most manufacturers warranty a sump pump for one year.

Q. What do your service reps do when they come out and inspect my sump pump?

A. We check to make sure the outlet has power; we check for debris on the sump pump screen; we check to see that the pump comes on and shuts off; we check the outside discharge line when possible, and clear any debris floating in the sump liner.
