Residential Plumbing

Plumbing van in front of a duplexBuying a home will be the biggest investment most of us will ever make. It doesn’t matter if it’s a first home, family home, or forever home, we want to make sure we do what we can to keep our home in good shape. This means cleaning the gutters in the fall, adding a fresh coat of paint to the living room, and other minor repairs as they happen.

Unfortunately, issues can arise that are out of our control or too much to handle for the average do-it-yourselfer. For example, if a lightbulb burns out, we just replace it. But if the power goes out on an entire floor, we call in the professionals.

It’s the same thing with plumbing. Except if you aren’t sure what you’re doing when changing out a kitchen faucet, you could end up spraying the entire room with water! Consider Rowe Plumbing your Vancouver WA plumbing professionals. We provide several residential services, ranging from drain cleaning to water line repair.

Residential Plumbing Services

Rowe Plumbing provides a wide range of service for homeowners. Whether it’s a slow-draining kitchen sink, a sudden loss of water pressure, or switching out a shower head in the master bathroom, we have the experience and the tools to take care of any situation. A few of our services include:

Clogged Drains

We expect a lot from our plumbing. When we washing our hands, use the garbage disposal, or clean paint brushes, we want all of that wastewater to move effortlessly down the drain. However, it doesn’t take long for tiny blockages to become big problems.

Using our tools of the trade, we will inspect your drain to find and remove the clogs. If a particular drain is continually backing up, there may be a bigger issue at play, which we will investigate. We can also provide tips on how to keep the drains clean, such as keeping grease out of the kitchen drain.

Replacing Fixtures

White BathtubAlthough it may seem like a simple task, switching out a bathroom faucet can cause problems if proper precautions aren’t taken. Turning the water off at the wall, making sure the hoses and drains are securely fastened, and even hooking cold and hot water to the appropriate handles to name a few.

Improperly installed fixtures can leak, causing problems that could affect more than the fixture itself. Dry rot caused by a leaky bathroom faucet on the second floor could cause unseen damage to the floor of the bathroom and even the ceiling below. With Rowe Plumbing and Drain, rest assured the fixtures will be professionally installed.


One of the most powerful tools a plumber can use, hydro jetting is basically like a pressure washer for your plumbing. While the jets of water are powerful enough to clean some distance down the line, it is still safe to use in most drainage situations.

It’s a much more refined tool than a drain snake and safer on the plumbing, too. In either case, we will remove the offending blockages.

Scoping Sewers

Many times, when the plumbing gets backed up, it’s happening from outside of the home along the sewer line. We have a lot of experience working on sewer lines, both in city and county jurisdictions. We are able to determine the health of the sewer line and where issues are arising.

Hot Water Heater Repair/Installation

Water HeatersOne of the most important plumbing appliances in the home, the hot water heater is responsible for keeping your showers nice and warm and increasing the washing power of your dishwasher. If there is an issue with the amount of hot water you have, servicing the water heater may help.

As valuable as it is to your home, the water heater is also one of the biggest energy users. Depending on the age of the water heater, we may recommend getting a new one. With energy efficiency improving almost yearly, and many designs to choose from, it could make sense to have us install a new one.

24 Emergency Service

A shower that backups because of too much hair, soap scum, and other debris is one thing. A foot of standing water in the basement is something else entirely. We are available around the clock and always return calls as quickly as possible. We’ll take care of the biggest problem first and then go from there.

In addition to all of the above services, Rowe Plumbing and Drain also performs a wide variety of repairs, fixes, and maintenance. We have worked with your neighbors all throughout Clark County and look forward to working with you. Having an issue with your residential plumbing? Give us a call and we’ll find out how we can help.
