No matter how large or small the blockages in your drain

It’s easy for kitchen drains to get plugged up over the years. Even with a garbage disposal, large amounts of food being rinsed down the sink can cause a build-up of gunk and debris and slowly restrict the flow of water eventually causing a blockage.

The drains on the side of a building that direct the flow of water from rain gutters away from the walls is known as downspout drains. Because water only flows through these drains during rainy weather, they are typically neglected and can get filled with leaves, debris, and even the nests of small animals. Duncan Plumbing knows how to clear these complex clogs and keep your downspouts free to do their job!

A clogged toilet drain is one of those things that can instantly ruin your day. Whether it’s caused by an overwhelming amount of toilet paper – or a toy car the anxiety that is caused by watching the water overflow the sides of the bowl is second to none. Duncan Plumbing will use a tool with a long cable that runs into the toilet drain and pulls out the clog. Leaving you to move on to more important things

Duncan Plumbing is proficient at handling a variety of bathroom plumbing issues and showers, sink, and tub drain blockages are among the more typical ones. The clogs that occur in these drains are usually caused by a build-up of hair and soap scum. The problem is a blockage in these drains causes standing water in the tub, sink, or shower – which are all places where you’re supposed to get clean.

If you have a floor drain in your garage or basement, you might be in the habit of rinsing chemicals or residue into it. A clog in these drains can present quite a problem, as it means a backup of caustic liquid that might be releasing toxic gases.

Broken Pipes (Water and/or Sewer)

A broken pipe is one of the examples of a plumbing emergency that can leave severe damage around your home. Thankfully, having a pipe actually break is relatively rare. However, the circumstances that cause a broken pipe happen fairly regularly. These include clogs causing mounting pressure on the walls of the pipe causing the pipe to break, and tree roots actually merging to the inside of the pipes and expanding the pipe until it cracks and breaks. During the crisis, the cause of the broken pipe is irrelevant, all that matters is that you have a trained plumbing professional there to help repair it – for that, you need to call Duncan Plumbing.

Drains that are Blocked

When it’s a simple fix, a drain that has a clog is just plain annoying. But, when the drain is so severely clogged that it’s causing wastewater and/or sewage to back-up and flood your yard – or worse – your house, it’s a crisis! There’s any number of reasons a drain can become blocked including; a malfunction in your sump pump, overflowing downspouts, and tree roots growing into the drain system. Duncan Plumbing is capable and experienced in handling all causes of blocked drains.

Trenchless Sewer Line Repair Aptos

Trenchless Pipe Technology is Growing Stronger?

The Duncan Plumbing team has the ability and know-how to install, repair, and maintain trenchless sewer and/or water pipe systems and has successfully completed several of these jobs across Santa Cruz County.

As the cities in the United States grow to be more and more populated, the need for trenchless pipe technology is growing stronger. The trenchless technique allows the pipeline to be installed without disturbing surface structures including; buildings, front yards, and landscape design. The process is good for switching out aging or busted water mains — and many other jobs that require water or sewer pipes to be replaced or updated. In the past, this was only possible by digging up the ground with excavators and various other tools, often times destroying the area being dug as well as the areas immediately surrounding. Lawns, gardens, driveways, and sidewalks were in most cases ruined in the interest of replacing pipes. The highly-skilled team at Duncan Plumbing are trained and proficient in “no-dig” styles and will complete your job with as little disruption as possible.

The Reason's Why the Warrant Water or Sewer Pipe's Require a Replacement.

Roots that have grown into causing clogs and other obstacles.
Your pipes are getting old.
Susceptible to oxidation.

Trenchless Technology Is an Innovative Procedure

Which enables the existing pipes to be completely replaced without having to dig trenches or remove structures that would normally impede work. These structures might include decks, garages, driveways, and sidewalks. The no-dig approach is a proven solution and is rapidly becoming the typical for many underground water and sewer pipe installations.

Benefits of a Trenchless Installation

  • Less expensive - in comparison with the cost and time investment of other options. Additionally, you will be spared the cost of having to replace your patio, deck, or garage because trenchless installation eliminates the need to dig.
  • Quick - most jobs can be completed in 2-3 days. Water and sewage structures are typically offline for only a few hours.
  • Clean and Low-Impact - You will see very little evidence of the installation as there will be no need to dig.

Water Heater Repair & Installation

At Duncan Plumbing we are proficient at installing several types of water heaters.

Duncan Plumbing is devoted to offering our Aptos clients with punctual, polite, and reputable support.

Duncan Plumbing has experience with virtually all forms of residential and commercial water heaters. Our skilled plumbers will take the time to explain your possible choices and discuss the specific pros and cons for each. Our number one priority is, regardless of which type of water heater you decide to have us install, you will be 100% satisfied.

Standard Atmospherically Vented Tanked

This is frequently the most affordable and most reliable option and is the typical choice for residential needs. The drawbacks to these are increased operating expense and wasted space.


This option is additionally known as “on-demand” or “instant” water heaters. These names, however, are misleading because they insinuate that as soon as your faucet is turned on – the water will be hot. This is often not the case. Tankless water heaters are more highly-priced to set up, but save space in your home and have lesser working fees.


These water heaters are up to 97% efficient, they supply a lot of hot water and they have the most inexpensive operating costs. Additionally, they require minor amounts of maintenance and repair and will normally last the lifetime of your residence. While the initial investment is significantly more than that of a standard water heater – the long-term investment is by far a better one as these water heaters can be considered for a $1500 credit on your taxes.


This is a cost-effective, eco-conscious answer. The VELUX solar water heater system comes with a 5-year promise, and, as a VELUX partner, Duncan Plumbing is an advanced leader in this high-efficiency option.

Should I have a look at a conventional or a tank less water heater? What is a hybrid water heater? What range of tax credits can I look forward to? These are all questions the expert staff at Duncan Plumbing receive on a day-to-day basis, and we are happy to answer these concerns and more. No question is a poor question.
The decision of which water heater to have installed is an important one. Considerations such as the number of people in the household and how much your current gas bill is will influence your choice.
