Water Heater Repair & Installation
Water heaters do have a life span and can give out without warning. In the unfortunate event you lose all hot water, Essential can quickly switch out your defective water heater with a new energy-efficient model. You’ll be back in hot water in no time.

Sump Pumps & Back-Up Systems
Sump pumps tend to fail when under a lot of stress, like heavy rain when you need it most. Essential can get there quickly, but in the meantime, have your sump pump checked and inspected by our Essential before the rain starts falling.

Do you have a backup for your sump pump in case of a power outage or your main pump gives out? Let us design a system for you that will keep you dry when you most need it.

Ejector Pumps
Ejector pumps, or Sewage Ejector Pumps, are common in basements where sewage must be pumped up to the main sewer line. One can only imagine the mess and damage a failed ejector pump can cause. Essential can check your Ejector pump to help prevent sudden failures and a huge cleanup.

Burst Pipe Repair
A burst pipe can be a traumatic experience. But don’t panic! Turn off your main water valve immediately, and then call Essential. While you’re waiting, do your best to get water off surfaces that could be damaged by prolonged exposure. We’ll get there as soon as we can to assess the situation, bring you peace of mind, and then make the repairs.

Drain & Sewer Cleaning
Clogged drains can bring a sudden halt to water use in your house, from showers, tp dishwashing, laundry, flushing, and more.

Gas Leak Detection
Smell gas in your house or business? Did you know that licensed plumbers are able to detect and repair gas leaks? Even better, we install new gas lines: outside grills, hot tubs, or inside to gas dryers and water heaters. Let the professionals at Essential make sure you and your family are safe, gas leaks are serious.
