Highwood, IL Plumbing Repair

If you take good care of your plumbing system, it will take good care of you. However, a lack of maintenance or ignoring needed repairs can often cause plumbing problems to balloon into much larger, more expensive issues. A simple plumbing repair can often return your plumbing system to new-like conditions. Unfortunately, many homeowners wait until it’s too late to call a plumber.

If you’re noticing issues with your Highwood, IL home’s plumbing system – such as low water pressure, leaky faucets or running toilets – contact the licensed plumbers at Ravinia Plumbing, Sewer, Heating & Electric today.

Common Plumbing Repairs

Some of the most common plumbing repairs Ravinia Plumbing makes include:

Slow Drains

Shower, tub, sinks and toilet drains can become slow because of clogs caused by soap, hair, grease or a number of other items. If left untreated, drains can completely stop releasing water. Pouring harsh chemicals down drains can often make the clog even worse. A licensed plumber can perform sewer rotting where they use a tool to cut through the blockage.

Leaky Faucets

Drip, drip, drip. The constant dripping of a kitchen or bathroom faucet is enough to drive almost anyone mad. A leaky faucet that drips once per second can waste as much as 3,000 gallons of water per year. A worn or damaged washer or cartridge inside the faucet is usually the culprit and is an easy plumbing repair to make.

Leaky Pipes

Clogs in your pipes, even relatively minor ones, can increase the water pressure, causing damage to your pipes and creating leaks. If you notice a puddle on the floor under a pipe, contact a plumber.

Burst Pipes

Burst pipes, on the other hand, are far more serious, as they can cause significant water damage to your Highwood, IL home. Burst pipes occur when they’re improperly insulated and exposed to below-freezing temperatures. If your pipes vibrate when you turn on a faucet, it could be a sign they’re deteriorating or the pipe fittings have loosened, and you should contact a plumber to inspect them.

Low Water Pressure

Low water pressure from your faucets and showerheads is annoying and inconvenient. Low water pressure often occurs because of clogged pipes or perhaps even a leak in the pipe.

Water Heater Issues

You rely on your water heater daily to take showers, cook and clean. So when issues develop, it’s a big inconvenience. Common water heater repairs include a faulty thermostat, thermocouple or pilot light. If your water heater is older and develops leaks, it might be time to consider replacing the unit with a newer model. Water heaters will, on average, last between 10-15 years.

Running Toilets

A running toilet isn’t only an annoying sound to hear, but it can also waste an incredible amount of water, leading to significantly higher water bills. In many cases, fixing a running toilet is a DIY job that may involve replacing the fill valve, flapper or flush valve. If you’re struggling to make the repair yourself, though, contact a licensed plumber. An overflowing toilet, meanwhile, is a plumbing emergency. It can be caused by a serious clog in the toilet or the pipe leading to the sewer line. If your toilet is overflowing, turn off the water line to the toilet, and contact a professional.

Malfunctioning Garage Disposals

If your garbage disposal is humming, leaking water from the bottom, not turning on or not draining, a repair is in order. Most of these issues are relatively easy to repair; however, garbage disposals tend to break down from heavy use after about 10 years and may need to be replaced.

Sewer Line Repair

A clogged or even slow sewer line can allow sewage to back up into tubs, floor drains and toilets. Ravinia Plumbing’s sewer line repair services can fix this issue. We can perform a sewer camera inspection to pinpoint the problem, sewer rodding and sewer excavation.

Reviews and Ratings

Lake Bluff electrical customer review

February 2022

I thought my electrical panel dated to 1956 so I called to get an appraisal for replacing it. The technician discovered that it had been updated during some construction in the 1990's. He said it really did not need to be replaced. I highly value the honesty of Ravinia and its workmen. In addition he fixed a balky stapler for me. Now that's service!”

Northbrook furnace customer review

February 2022

“Very impressed with the technician's ability to diagnose the problem in less than 5 minutes. It was fixed in a short period of time and the furnace has been working well since. Mark and Tao also gave our furnace a thorough diagnostic check-up to make sure there was nothing else that could become problematic, including going outside to look at the air intake pipe. We were very impressed with the service provided.”

Lincolnshire plumbing and electrical customer review

February 2022

Have had the need to use Ravinia a few times; obviously the circumstances were unfortunate. The Ravinia plumbers and electricians were in every instance professional, competent, and courteous.”

Deerfield furnace emergency customer review

February 2022

The technicians are always competent, responsive, and really pleasant to work with. I went from "my furnace is on the fritz" on Thursday with a technician out same day to look at it, to an estimate on Friday, and an installation with financing on Monday. The work area is left clean. The technicians care about their appearance and respect the cleanliness of my home. Technicians are always willing to walk me through what's going on in a clear way. They're patient with my questions and thoughtful with their answers.”

Mundelein all services customer review

February 2022

“We have always found Ravinia's work to be thorough and professional, and every job has been completed fully without the need for a second visit.  In our experience, Ravinia has always responded to emergencies with day-of or next-day service.  We have yet to experience any technician who wasn't respectful, professional, and friendly, and also careful about Covid protections

We have used Ravinia for many years, first in our Church-provided housing, and for 6 years in our own home since retirement.”

Lake Forest Home Care Club customer review

February 2022

“Ravinia's annual membership is a great value, pays for itself quickly and gets you timely and professional service. We've been using Ravinia for years and have always received top notch service, particularly in heating emergency situations.”
