Plumbing in Philadelphia
You may not think of it often, but plumbing is probably the most important feature of your home or commercial space. Without it, how would you access water, the most precious resource, knowing that you can use it safely for health, hygiene and general well-being? Most Philadelphia residents only realize how much they rely on plumbing when something breaks down. When it does, all hell can break loose. This is especially true for those who think they can master this complex trade on their that takes years of training to perfect on their own.
Whenever your plumbing becomes a problem, letting someone fumble around in the dark as they try to guess their way out of the mess is no way to deal with something that keeps you clean and hydrated. Instead of risking it, contact Nelson’s Plumbing & Heating.

Common Plumbing Repair Jobs
Even the best constructed, most thoroughly maintained plumbing systems can’t prevent the occasional clog or leak, especially in older homes. These common plumbing repair jobs can be huge nuisances, but luckily, we have all the necessary expertise to resolve the problem at your earliest convenience:
Not only does the constant drip, drip, drip keep you up at night, that leaky faucet could be running up your water bill. Although it may seem as simple as replacing a specific washer, the right parts can be hard to find and completing the job can be tough without the specialized tools. To stop the leak in a hurry, Nelson’s Plumbing & Heating has all the necessary tools and materials on-hand to repair the leak in no time.
Low Water Pressure
Is there anything worse than trying to take your morning shower with hardly any water coming out? The pipes carrying water into your home could be clogged or corroded. There could also be a leak or a breach somewhere in the pipes leading into your home. We can identify the issue, fix it and bring the water pressure back to where it needs to be.
Whenever you spot water pooling under a pipe, do not put off calling in the plumbing experts. Letting that moisture collect could mean paying for pricey mold removal in the near future. Pipe replacements are messy jobs that require a professional’s touch, which we are happy to provide you with.
Plungers can use air pressure to dislodge a clog and commercial drain cleaners can remove a clog, but they can damage your pipes if used too frequently. If you’re dealing with clogs on a regular basis, we have the know-how to make sure your water’s flowing again.
One of the most common plumbing jobs Nelson’s Plumbing & Heating gets called for are toilet repairs. Whether it’s at home or at work, is there anything more concerning that a leaking, running, slow-filling, noisy or un-flushable toilet? Luckily, thanks to our emergency plumbing services, someone from Nelson’s Plumbing & Heating can help you fix your broken toilet no matter the time of day. And since we deal with toilet repairs regularly, you can trust the neighborhood plumbers at Nelson’s Plumbing & Heating to provide a quick and lasting fix.
Some of the more common toilet repairs we conduct regularly include:
Water on the Floor Around the Toilet
When you notice that there is water pooling on the floor around the toilet, it is so very important that you pick up the phone and call (215) 549-6000. If this problem is not dealt with by a professional plumber as soon as possible, the moisture is going to do damage to your subfloor and you will have to deal with mold remediation or water damage restoration on top of a toilet repair.
Once we arrive at the scene, we will start by checking all the connections to see if you need a washer replacement. If all the connections are tight, we will then check the toilet tank for cracks. If it is cracked, we can easily set you up with a new one. If it’s not, we’ll then see if the wax ring is still sealed or if the base is cracked. Replacing the wax ring or fixing the base are more involved repairs but thankfully our plumbers have extensive experience with these types of plumbing repairs and we can provide a solution with ease.
Toilet Won’t Flush
If your toilet won’t flush, it’s worth lifting up the top of the water tank just to make sure the lift arm and lift chain haven’t become detached from the valve. If it’s as simple as reattaching the chain, then there’s no big deal. However, if everything looks normal and connected, give the plumbers at Nelson’s Heating & Plumbing a call. We’ll be glad to carry out a full inspection as soon as possible to determine the source of the issue and make sure to get it working again as quickly as we can because your comfort is at stake!
Toilet Won’t Stop Running
A toilet that won’t stop running wastes water and costs you money. If your toilet sounds like it’s running at all hours of the day it likely means that there is a leak somewhere.
There are a number of different parts that could contain a leak, which is why it can be difficult to spot and stop if you aren’t familiar with the ins and outs of a toilet.
Rather than risk doing any additional damage to your already damaged toilet, give our plumbers a call. Our plumbing experts will be able to find and repair the leaking area and you won’t be flushing money down the drain every month on your water bill.
Four Plumbing Projects That Need a Professional
There is no doubt about it, DIY projects are a great way of honing your handy skills while saving some money to boot. However, there are some jobs that really need a professional touch and shouldn’t be undertaken alone—and plumbing is at the top of this list. While it is true that there are some plumbing problems that are relatively easy to fix there are others that should never be considered without a plumber being present.
With that in mind, here are four plumbing projects that really do need a professional plumber:
- Broken Sewer Line: A broken sewer line can cause drainage problems and even see a sinkhole develop in your yard. This is not just a serious problem for your Philadelphia home, it can also pose complex issues for the sewer lines that are buried deep beneath the ground and can run for hundreds of feet in length if not taken care of correctly. To the untrained eye, it is extremely difficult to locate the actual point where the sewer break occurred. However, for our skilled team of plumbers this is a relatively straight-forward task that can be undertaken quickly thanks to the use of high-tech cameras that can identify the exact spot where the problem has originated from.
- Clogged Sewer Lines: If your Philadelphia home has recently endured a clogged sewer line, then you don’t need us to tell you that this is a serious problem that needs addressing quickly. The simple fact of the matter is that a clogged-up sewer line can affect related unit in your house. This means that toilets, sinks and bathtubs will back up and may even overflow if the problem persists without repair. One of our professional plumbers can easily solve this problem by using high-pressure hydro-jetting equipment to clear the clog in the main sewer line. This means that even the most challenging of obstructions can be dealt with in no time at all.
- Water Heater Repairs: If there is one plumbing job that really should not be attempted by an amateur then it is this. The reason for this is simple: Even an adjustment that may appear simple could end up making a leak worse or may even cause serious damage and injuries including burns or explosions to occur.
- Bathtub Replacement: When it comes to bathtub replacement, the reality is that this is a challenging task for even our professional team of plumbers at Nelson's Plumbing & Heating. A job of this nature requires intense precision as well as the use of different replacement plumbing parts. Attempting to do this job solo may end up with you sourcing parts that don’t fit correctly, and this can cause additional complications like leakages in the weeks and months ahead. The best way of avoiding this stress is by calling Nelson's Plumbing & Heating today and allowing our professional team of plumbers to fix the problem right away.
Residential and Commercial Plumbing
To most, plumbing may just seem like plumbing. But there’s a difference when it comes to residential vs. commercial, and at Nelson’s Plumbing & Heating we’re well versed in that difference. Commercial plumbing setups are often much larger than residential ones with multiple bathrooms, toilets, sinks, and a much larger demand for these services. Office buildings can be well over the average three-floor maximum of residential homes!
Because of the scale and volume of use, commercial plumbing problems come in a wide variety, all needing immediate care. Philadelphia coding and bylaws are especially important in a commercial plumbing situation.
When you’re looking for quality residential or commercial plumbing services, look for a company that understand the difference like Nelson’s Plumbing & Heating. Education is the first step, and with a company that launched itself in the 1920s you know we’ve got tons!
Plumbing emergencies don’t tell you when they’re going to happen. That’s why at Nelson’s Plumbing & Heating we make ourselves available 24/7 for our Philadelphia clients when they need an emergency plumber. Licensed and bonded professionals, we have a wide variety of fixtures at our disposal to help you out of any messy situation quickly.
Going the extra mile for our clients no matter what time of day or night is important to us. Whether you’re dealing with a malfunctioning hot water heater, broken sewer lines, blocked drains, broken or frozen pipes, or broken water mains, just pick up the phone and call your friendly emergency plumber!
This applies to residential or commercial clients. Because, we know the last thing any building owner wants is to walk in early in the morning to open the doors of their company only to find a bathroom floor covered in water and waste!
Within Time and Budget
Plumbing services are one of those things you know you need to budget for but don’t really want to. We know it can be painful when you’re saving up for that long-deserved holiday only to be slammed with the need for an expensive 24-hour plumber.
That’s why at Nelson’s Plumbing & Heating we’ve always done our best to offer Philadelphia home and business owners competitive pricing as well as work completed within their preferred timeframe, without cutting corners.
There are a lot of plumbers out there who will look at their clients as jobs, or numbers, but at Nelson’s that is not the case. Having been in business for decades, we love the work we do, and being able to help people. And it shows!
Looking for a reliable plumbing service that offers emergency care and great rates? You’ve just found it!
