Kitchen Drains Plug as Time Passes.

No one wants to cook a meal in a kitchen with a plugged drain. Clogs in the kitchen drains are usually caused by soap gunk and food compost building up on the inner walls of the pipes. Getting these clogs fixed quickly is important as it’s unsanitary to have a sink full of used water.


Duncan Plumbing assists with a variety of plumbing needs in the bathroom – and the sink is no exception. These drains can be back up because of hair, soap, or toothpaste and getting the clog cleared before it’s time to brush your teeth next is essential!

Shower and Bathtub

There’s nothing worse than when you’re taking a shower and the tub starts to fill with water because of a drain blockage. These clogs are most likely caused by a build-up of hair in the drain.


Drains in the floors of laundry rooms and garages usually have a variety of chemicals and other agents rinsed down then depending on what type of projects are being done. A clog in a floor drain can cause a back-up of caustic water and fluid so it’s important to get these clogs cleared up quickly.

If you have a blocked drain, or need information on how to prevent a blockage – contact Duncan Plumbing. Our team of expertly trained plumbers are happy to help!

The experts at Duncan Plumbing possess the skills which assist us in finding and resolving each of your plumbing dilemmas quickly and professionally.

Delaying a plumbing problem, can lead to far more substantial destruction to your house and property.

Some factors that might contribute to your need to contact an emergency plumber comprise:

Plugged Drains

Put in basic terms, a clogged drain is an annoyance. But it’s a dilemma in the event the blockage triggers wastewater to back up. This might cause sewage to fill your house or business if you don’t get plumbing assistance. Blocked drains can easily be caused by the failure of your sump pump, by tree roots that may have grown directly into drainage system, and by overflowing or plugged downspouts. So in the event that you have a plugged drain contact Duncan Plumbing today!

Broken Water Pipes

A burst pipe is a plumbing emergency which can cause notable issues in your house! While the burst pipe itself is an atypical incidence for most residences, it can be a consequence of various typical issues. A pipe may burst owing to protruding tree roots. When trees grow, their roots will grow too. The roots will encroach on your pipes and ultimately cause them to crack and burst. In addition, a burst pipe can stem from excessive pressure buildup resulting from jammed up pipes. It doesn’t matter what causes a burst pipe, once it happens you absolutely need immediate help in preventing more serious devastation.

Clogged Toilet

The toilet is one of the most under-rated, yet chief commodities that we simply all take for granted. It’s just always supposed to work. In the event you have a constantly running toilet, numerous toilet clogs, overflows, bursts, or low flushing power, then the chief difficulty could possibly be larger than you can manage. When a jammed up toilet is bringing about a plumbing emergency at your home or office building, call Duncan Plumbing.

Trenchless Sewer Line Repair & Installation in Santa Cruz, CA

Duncan Plumbing our team of professional plumbers is proficient at implementing a trenchless approach for repairing

As the metropolitan areas of the United States grow and become more populated, there is more of an interest to protect investments making the need for trenchless pipe solutions greater. A trenchless approach to installations and repairs permits underground pipeline to be accessed with disrupting or damaging structures at the surface such as buildings, landscaping, and walkways.

Trenchless technology is ideal for installing, replacing, repairing, and maintaining water and sewer pipe systems.

In years past, it would be mandatory to dig a trench using large pieces of equipment and tools leaving areas such as gardens, sidewalks, decks, and patios damaged or destroyed. By using a no-dig approach, these complications and additional costs are eliminated.

Having trees as part of landscaping has many benefits – and detriments. Tree roots can cause major damage to water and sewer lines by growing within the pipes and causing them to crack from the inside out.

However, with trenchless pipe replacement technology you can have peace of mind that if a tree’s roots do damage your water or sewer pipes, they can be replaced with needing to dig a trench and damage your foundation, garage, walkway, landscaping, or deck. This is a proven break-through method and is quickly growing into the standard practice for many underground pipe jobs.


 It can be less expensive because you won’t have the added costs of replacing any surrounding areas that are damaged or destroyed during digging.

 It is typically a quick process taking only two to three days to complete most jobs. Usually, water and sewer systems are only disabled for a few hours.

 The impact is low because there is no digging required so little evidence will be left that you had any plumbingmaintenance.

As an experienced plumbing company, we have knowledge of just about every style of residential and commercial water heaters.

On daily basis we get questions like, Should I have a look at a basic or a tank less water heater? What is a hybrid water heater? What level of tax credits can I expect to see? Our experienced plumbers take the time to answer all of these questions and more. Deciding on which water heater is best for you and your family is a big decision and you should be well-informed.

Lots of upselling

Review of Duncan Plumbing

My toilet kept running, and I noticed the gasket seemed broke, though I am not a plumber and not sure where to get a replacement. So the plumber comes in, I show him the gasket and he says “yup, thats broken”. Then comes the fun part. “Hey, maybe you should replace the whole toilet, and we will give you a good deal on labor”. Lol - I don’t need a new toilet. “Ok - well I may need to replace the whole flapper mechanism, and I will need to order that part which could take two weeks. Let me go outside and call to get a quote”. Really - for a broken gasket? Well I guess so. Finally he comes in from the truck - “Well I do have this replacement gasket. Should take about 5 minutes to fix.” Done! It still cost 120 bucks for a 4 dollar gasket, but I suppose I got off cheap compared with the alternatives..

I would call them again!!

Review of Duncan Plumbing

I was referred to Duncan Plumbing by a neighbor. Contacting them was easy and their call back was swift. They came within a day of my call. They arrived on time, explained the problems thoroughly, showed me the damaged parts, worked swiftly, and cleaned up completely. I received an after visit call making sure that things went well. Since I have not had any plumbing problems for years, I don't know how to rate the cost/price of service as I have nothing to compare it to. I know that I am very satisfied them and the quality of the work so I won't be calling anyone else.
