Besides being annoying, water leaks can run up your water and sewer bill, and also damage surrounding services and appliances. Don’t wait.

Water Leak Detection:
Did you know the average home loses an average of 10,000 gallons of water per year? Save money and save water with an inspection and timely repair. Essential will inspect your home for leaks free-of-cost, and will quote on any repairs that are needed. Additionally, the inspection will make sure your plumbing is current and not in violation of your city/village codes.

Water Heater Repair & Installation
Showers, dishwashers, washing machines—can you imagine your life without hot water? Well, it can happen. Water heaters do have a life span and can give out without warning. There are preventive measures you can take to extend the life of your unit, starting with an inspection by Essential. And in the unfortunate event you lose all hot water, Essential can switch out your current water heater with a new energy-efficient model.

Sump Pumps & Back-Up Systems
A sump pump keeps your basement or crawl space dry. Water damage, even a small amount can cause structural damage and be a breeding ground for harmful mold that is expensive and time-consuming to mitigate. Prevention is key! 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.
