A backflow prevention device is used to protect potable water supplies from contamination or pollution due to backflow. In water supply systems, water is normally maintained at a significant pressure to enable water to flow from the tap, shower, etc. When pressure fails or is reduced, as may happen if a water main bursts or there is unexpectedly high demand on the water system, then such reduced pressure in the pipe may allow contaminated water from the ground, from storage or from other sources to be drawn up into the system. Our techs are able to install and repair backflow preventers. We are available 24/7 to assure your backflow device is repaired quickly during any emergency situation.
DRAIN LINE REPAIR/REPLACEMENT
A clogged drain is bad enough — why make it worse? Conventional drain cleaners contain toxic chemicals such as sodium hydroxide, the active ingredient in chlorine bleach. The fumes can cause breathing difficulty and nausea; the product can burn your skin. Furthermore, drain cleaners can react with ammonia, another common ingredient in household cleaners, to produce a form of chlorine gas. Finally, their corrosive action can damage pipes. The safest way to clear a clogged drain is to call your local plumber. SanCap Home Services can easily clear clogs in your sink, shower or tub without the use of harmful chemicals.
DRAIN LINE REPAIR
Your home’s plumbing and sewer system has most likely been a part of your house from the time it was built. Unless you live in a brand new home, your sewer and drain pipes could be very old or cast iron. For older homes this means that there is a good chance of a drain or sewer line issue at some point. You may experience grease issues, odor, waste water backing up your drains or an overflowing toilet. If you call SanCap Home Services at the first sign of a problem, we can thoroughly inspect your plumbing system and make repairs to prevent small problems from becoming larger ones.

A re-pipe is a process where the old pipes in the water distribution system in a home or a building are replaced with new ones. Pipe fittings, stop valves, and supply lines are replaced. Re-piping can improve water pressure and water quality. In some cases re-piping may not be necessary at all. We will inspect your system and let you know if a repair will be more cost effective. If there is extensive damage to your piping system, you may need to re-pipe. Our plumbers will carry out a No Cost inspection to uncover the sections of piping that will need to be replaced.
As a homeowner, you are responsible for the maintenance and repair of the pipeline that connects the city sanitary sewer main and your home. You own this pipeline, including any part of it that extends into the street or public right of way. Thus, you should understand how backups are caused so you can prevent them and save yourself some costly repairs. Three causes are the culprits behind most sewer backups: blockages in the pipeline caused by tree roots, blockages in the sanitary main and heavy rains. Sewer line repair may be an option for you, instead of a full replacement. Repair of a broken sewer pipe, and/or installing a clean out, can extend the life of your existing sewer and save you from costly back up events in your home. If a camera inspection has confirmed the majority of your sewer lateral is in good working order, but has a spot that causes a backup, a spot repair may be right for you. By having SanCap Home Services repair a broken sewer line, offset pipe joint, or short section of root intruded pipe, you can extend the working life of your sewer trouble free.
Toilets not flushing as they should? Over time toilets will begin to have some problems, but the most frustrating thing for many homeowners is when a toilet will not flush properly.

The quality of water in our area, especially on the islands is in dire need of filtration. Adding a whole home water filtration system drastically reduces the chlorine and chloramines in your water.
