Drain Cleaning Services in Rio Del Mar CA

We Are Professionals at resolving every sort of Drain and Sewer line Issues

The outstanding team at Duncan plumbing is always happy to help you with a variety of plumbing troubles.

While we have the skills and the resources to replace whole water and sewer systems, we are also willing and able to help with smaller jobs, like unclogging a drain. We know that from your perspective, any plumbing issue is a big job and we will treat it that way!

Kitchen Drains

Over time the build-up of grease, food particles and soap residue can form a plaque on the inside of your kitchen drain causing is to clear slower and slower. It’s never appealing to try and cook a meal when there is a clogged kitchen drain causing filthy water to back up in the sink. Luckily, the trained professionals at Duncan Plumbing can clear the blockage swiftly and get you back to your meal!


The bathroom is the one place in the house where the focus is to get clean. A backed up drain can quickly change those plans causing a tremendous hassle and leaving you and your family stuck. Often times a toilet drain will develop a clog due to copious amounts of toilet paper – and the occasional child’s toy. The sink, tub, and shower drain usually acquire a buildup of a residue comprised of hair, soap, and toothpaste. For the experts at Duncan Plumbing, both of these clogs are relatively easy to fix.

Drains in the Floor

Usually found in a shop, garage, laundry room, or basement floor drains have all kinds of “outside” debris rinsed down them. Whether you’re working on a project in the shop and spill some oil, or accidentally drop a bottle of fabric softener on the floor of the basement having a floor drain is a great way to make clean up a snap. However, plans of a quick clean up can be deterred when your floor drain has a clog and dirty water backs up all over the floor

Emergency Plumbing Services in Rio Del Mar, CA

Clogged toilets are just one of the many reasons you might need to contact an emergency plumber.

A plumbing emergency can be one of the most stressful – and damaging – events an individual can go through. Whether it’s water spewing all over the kitchen floor, or a disable toilet in a house full of visiting family, a plumbing emergency can quickly ruin your day! If you have a plumbing emergency and need help from a reliable and efficient professional – contact Duncan Plumbing! Putting off repairing a pipe, drain, or faucet can lead to infinitely more damage and can increase your chances of an emergency.

Some Reasons That You Might Possibly Need to Contact an Emergency Plumber Are:

Broken Pipes

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.

Blocked Drains

When it’s a minor one, a blocked drain is an annoyance. But, when it’s severe and can’t be undone a blocked drain can quickly escalate into an emergency situation. Especially if the clog is causing wastewater to back up and sewage to flood your yard or your home. A few reasons that a drain might get blocked up are overflowing downspouts, a failure in your sump pump, and tree roots that have grown directly into your drainage system.

Backed Up Toilets

The toilet is one of the most relied upon appliances in your home – and when it’s not working it can make for a very bad day. If your toilet is always running or has reoccurring clogs, leaks, and overflows, or it doesn’t flush powerfully, then the situation may call for more than just a plunger. Anytime you have a toilet-related plumbing emergency in your home, contact Duncan Plumbing!

Trenchless Sewer Line Repair & Installation in Rio Del Mar, CA

Duncan Plumbing is proficient in the installation, repair, and maintenance of trenchless water and sewage systems and has handled several of these jobs across Santa Cruz County.

As cities across American become more populated and developed, the need for a solution like trenchless pipe installations grows. This “no-dig” approach makes it possible for underground water and sewer pipeline installations, without destroying driveways, garages, front yards, and surroundings.

Trenchless Technology Is Perfect for Replacing Aging or Busted Water Mains and Sewer Pipes.

Up to now, this process required trenching with large pieces of digging equipment. Lawns, gardens, sidewalks, and patios were quite often ruined while pipes were being replaced. Now, with “no-dig” approaches, the complications and setbacks are a thing of the past.

As trees grow, their roots get bigger and can fill pipes and sewage lines triggering clogs and other hassles. Because of this, pipes are often susceptible to splitting, and oxidizing, which causes failure in the line.

Trenchless Pipe Replacement Is a Highly Innovative Procedure Allowing a Plumber to Replace the Defective Pipe or Sewer Line.

Without needing to dig a ditch or remove objects that normally would have inhibited the installation, namely: patio floors, decks, foundations, walkways, and garages. This new process is extremely enticing for home and business owners who have invested time and money into landscaping the outside areas around their home or business. Trenchless pipe replacement is a proven method and is rapidly becoming the normal for many underground piping installations.


 Efficient Set-up - Two to three days is the timelines for most jobs. Typically water and sewage systems are unavailable only a few hours.
 Low-Impact Installation - There is little evidence left behind after trenchless installation because no digging is required.
 Cost-effective - You won’t have to pay to have your driveway, patio, or walkway replaced.

Water Heater Repair & Installation in Rio Del Mar, CA

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

Water Heater

What can you tell me about tankless water heaters? How does a hybrid water heater work? What kind of tax credits could I be eligible for? We hear questions like this and more on a daily basis – and we’re happy to answer all of them! When you and your family are shopping for a water heater, it’s important to be well-informed of your options..

We can answer your questions about many different types of water heaters.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Depending on your hot water needs, your home may be a good candidate for a tankless water heater. I always recommend a consultation at your home or business to discuss your needs and examine how difficult or easy y a tankless installation would be for you.

It depends. If the tank itself is leaking, no. But often it is hard to determine what is exactly leaking. Qualified plumbing can determine if the tank or a repairable fitting is leaking and advise you further.

Yes, qualified plumbers are best suited to the size and install sump pumps and related systems.
