From Toilets to Tubs & Showers—We Handle Them All!

Toilets, tubs, and showers are mission critical plumbing fixtures in any home. When they begin to malfunction, you need to have a reliable plumber out to your home as soon as possible. With over 80 years of plumbing experience, Essig Plumbing & Heating has seen almost every plumbing issue imaginable.

Poor installation, defective components, and wear and tear can all cause your bathroom fixtures to have complications. If you are experiencing a toilet, tub, or shower that is not draining, it is most often due to a clog in the drain lines.

Identifying Common Bathroom Fixture Issues

When you call one of our friendly customer service representatives, they will send out a trained, certified, insured, and bonded plumber as soon as possible. We will sit down with you to go over the problem you are experiencing and thoroughly inspect your tub or shower.

Our process includes:

  • Test for leaks
  • Check faucets
  • Inspect shower heads
  • Do a visual inspection of the entire shower, tub, or toilet
  • Employ our video detection equipment to check for clogs in the drain pipes

After determining the reason your toilet, tub, or shower is not working, we will provide a quote that includes upfront pricing and no hidden fees.

How to Resolve Common Bathroom Problems in Reading?

If your bathroom has a faulty or leaking showerhead/faucet or broken valve, we will replace the faulty component and test the new fixture to make sure it is working. With a weak or leaking shower pan, we will likely need to pull out the shower/tub and replace the shower pan. After tearing the shower or tub out, we recommend a new shower or tub to ensure that you have a solid fixture without cracks or fractures. For a clog in your drain lines, we will rooter out the line to remove the clog and re-inspect the drain line to ensure the clog is gone.
