North County’s Trusted Plumber

Plumbers Serving Carlsbad, Vista, San Marcos & the Surrounding Areas

Are your pipes leaking? Water not hot? Drain clogged? Don’t try to wait these out — or worse, try and fix them yourself — call Sherlock Plumbing, Heating & Air today for a quick and long-lasting fix for your plumbing issues. Your home is an investment, so take good care of it by keeping your plumbing in check. We have the experience you need and the customer service you’re looking for. No matter what the plumbing issue is, we can fix it!

Our highly trained Carlsbad plumbers are proud to provide customers with a full range of plumbing installation and replacement services, including:

  • Water heater installation and replacement. We can help you choose the ideal water heater for your home and expertly install the new system. We’ll also properly dispose of your old water heater, so you don’t have to worry about it.
  • Tankless water heater installation and replacement. The Sherlock team will help you identify the most efficient tankless water heater for your home. We will install the unit, show you how to operate the system, and dispose of your old water heater.
  • Faucet and fixture installation and replacement. We can install faucets and fixtures in a new home or as part of a renovation. Call Sherlock to install your sinks, showerheads, bathtubs, and more.
  • Toilet installation and replacement. Installing a new toilet can make a huge difference in your bathroom. Whether it’s for new construction or you’re upgrading your bathroom, Sherlock can help with your toilet installation.
  • Garbage disposal installation and replacement. Sherlock can replace your old, worn-out system with a modern, high-efficiency garbage disposal. If you’ve never had a garbage disposal before, we can install one in your kitchen to make food waste disposal easier than ever.
  • Home repiping. We can redesign and replace your water lines if your current pipes are corroded, leaking, or producing discolored water. Call Sherlock for repiping services at the first signs of piping issues to prevent major water damage.

Every homeowner knows that there is never a convenient time for plumbing problems to arise. That is why we are here to help when residential plumbing problems spring up. We work hard to ensure that you are always safe and comfortable in your home, and we will do whatever it takes to repair your plumbing systems and get them running properly as quickly as possible.

We offer a full range of repair services, including:

  • Water heater repairs. Cleaning, bathing, and cooking are a lot harder when your water heater is on the fritz. We can drain sediment, reconnect wiring, test thermostats, and more to get your water heater back in top condition.
  • Tankless water heater repairs. Tankless water heaters can also break down and need repair. The Sherlock team can make it right by draining sediment, repairing gas and electrical connections, replacing heating elements, and more.
  • Leak repairs. Our team will work quickly to identify the cause of the leak and to apply the appropriate repair. We plug and repair leaks caused by corrosion, damaged seals, high water pressure, etc.
  • Faucet and fixture repairs. We are experts at repairing malfunctioning faucets, shower valves, hose bibbs, and more.
  • Toilet repairs. Our plumbers can fix stuck floats, seal leaks, and more to repair your toilet.
  • Drain cleanings. Sherlock plumbers can clean your drains so that the water flows smoothly and safely away from your home.
  • Garbage disposal repairs. Whether it has a bad motor, damaged blades, or a faulty electrical system, we can fix your garbage disposal so you can get back in the kitchen with ease.

  • You don’t have any hot water. If you aren’t getting any hot water at all, your water heater needs to be repaired or, if it’s over 10 years old, replaced. If you’re running out of hot water too quickly, your existing tank may not be large enough.
  • Your drains keep clogging. A drain clog here and there probably isn’t cause for alarm, but if you’re experiencing frequent drain and toilet backups, you may have a larger issue with your sewer and/or water lines.
  • You have inconsistent water pressure. A qualified plumber can troubleshoot why your home has weak or inconsistent water pressure. Weak water pressure may be the result of a faulty fixture or a significant leak or clog in your plumbing system.
  • You don’t have any water. It may seem obvious, but if you turn on your faucet and nothing comes out, it’s time to call a plumber. As this constitutes a plumbing emergency, call for service as soon as possible.
  • You notice mold & mildew. If you’re noticing dampness and mold growth where there shouldn’t be any (like under a sink), don’t delay in calling a plumber. Plumbing leaks only get worse with time and can result in extensive water damage.

When you find a team of home service professionals that you can rely on, it is something to treasure. At Sherlock Plumbing, Heating & Air, we want to be the team you can turn to no matter what problems you are experiencing in your home.
