Jim Dandy Sewer and Plumbing FAQ

While Jim Dandy Sewer & Plumbing has been a sewer construction company since 1908, our plumbers in Seattle, WA, and the nearby areas are equally capable of addressing a broad range of additional plumbing needs. Let us answer some of your frequently asked questions related to our sewer repair, general plumbing, water heater repair, and drain cleaning services.

Sewer Repair

Q. What are signs that you need sewer repair in Seattle?

A. Slow drains, frequent clogs and backups, odd drain odors, and soggy spots on your lawn are common signs of sewer-related problems.

Q. Is excavation always necessary to repair sewer lines?

A. Not at all! We offer no-dig trenchless techniques that include cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining and pipe bursting.

General Plumbing

Q. What are the most frequent general plumbing emergencies?

A. Leaking or burst pipes, overflowing toilets, and broken fixtures are some of the issues that should be reason enough to call us for emergency plumbing assistance.

Q. What are other general plumbing issues?

A. Not every general plumbing situation requires urgent attention. You can also save time and money if you turn to our plumbing pros for plumbing updates, fixture installation, and the connection of water-based appliances.

Water Heater

Q. Other than leaks, what are the main reasons to have a water heater repaired or replaced?

A. Your water heater also needs professional attention if you are noticing discolored water, hot water running out too quickly, or strange noises from your tank.

Q. What are the top choices for replacement water heaters?

A. If repair isn't possible, you may benefit from a newer, more efficient hot water solution. We install gas and electric models as well as heat pump style water heaters and hybrid models.

Drain Cleaning

Q. When does a drain need cleaned?

A. Ideally, it's best to be proactive about drain cleaning in the Dowtown Seattle area, but it's also a good idea to have your drains cleaned if you're noticing slow drains or recurring clogs.

Q. How are drains professionally cleaned?

A. The first step we take is to do a camera inspection. This allows us to see what's going on inside your drains to determine the most appropriate cleaning method. We use drain snaking and hydro jetting, when necessary.
