Leaky Faucets and Pipes—While these may not seem like timely plumbing problems, they can quickly cause a considerable amount of water damage over time.

Water and Sewer Lines—Dual Line Repair in Rockford IL
Water lines bring fresh water into your home while sewer or septic lines carry it away after it's been used. These drainage systems are crucial to the plumbing in your home. Service Now Home Services can repair or replace broken or leaking exterior water service lines from the property boundary to your home's foundation. Our expert plumbers can also repair or replace your exterior sewer/septic line within your property boundary. Buried pipes can break or degrade over time. From unblocking clogs to complete repair or replacement jobs, our local and licensed specialists can help.
Failing water service or sewer/septic lines often result in:
- Low water pressure
- Water leaks or sewage in your basement
- Water leaks or sewage in your yard
Water Service Lines
The pipes that channel clean water into your home and carry away wastewater to the sewer are often taken for granted by homeowners—until something goes wrong. Getting fresh water into your home is important. Your water main connects your home plumbing to the public water supply. This main line transports water from the public main into the numerous pipes in your home. The main water line of most homes is underground and cannot be easily accessed without digging. Service Now Home Services offers full-service repairs including main water line repair, main water line replacement, and main water line cleaning.
Identifying issues with your main water line can be difficult, but here are some common symptoms that you may need a plumbing inspection:
- Your pipes are old
- A sudden spike in water use on your utility bill
- Water found pooling somewhere in your yard
Minor water leaks from your main water line can go months or even years undetected if the leak is small and slow. If this happens, the damage caused by the leak at this point can be too large to repair and you will need to replace it entirely. Carefully monitor your family's water usage so you can catch discrepancies early on. A large water main leak will often come up through the earth and form puddles on your property and around your home. If this happens, you need to call Service Now Home Services immediately to repair it!
Your main sewer line carries waste from your home to a treatment facility. It takes all the liquid and solid waste from toilets, tubs, and sinks out of your home toward the main sewer under the street in front of your home. The main sewer line is connected to the city sewer system; however, the homeowner is responsible for their personal sewer line that resides within the boundaries of their property.
Main sewer lines can become clogged and when this happens, you may experience frequent clogs from appliances within the home. If a noticeable sewer smell is coming from some of your plumbing fixtures or they keep clogging on a regular basis, it could be a main sewer line clog. Service Now Home Services provides main sewer line repair, main sewer line replacement, or main sewer line cleaning.
Our sewage and plumbing professionals can repair any of the following situations:
Grease buildup or foreign objects can clog your sewer lines.
Over time, pipes can deteriorate, break, crack, or collapse.
A bellied pipe is one in which a section of the pipe has sunk due to ground and soil conditions. A valley of debris, waste, and water is created.
- Leaking Joints
When the seals between pipes have broken, water will leak into the surrounding area.
- Tree Roots
Trees or shrubs dig their roots into the ground looking for water. Sometimes these roots invade your sewer lines and damage them, preventing flow and regular cleaning.
- Off-Grade Pipes
If pipes are misaligned or constructed with poor materials, they may easily corrode.
- Burst Pipes
We replace any and all broken pipes!
- Pipe Relining
The pipe relining sewer repair process creates a “pipe within a pipe” in order to restore flow and function. Using epoxy relining materials that mold to the inside walls of the existing pipe, we create a new inner wall.
We offer both traditional sewer line repair methods as well as trenchless sewer line repair methods. Our trenchless sewer line repair causes much less damage than traditional repair methods and is the next step in quality sewer line maintenance. When you need main sewer line repair, main sewer line replacement, or main sewer line cleaning.
If you're not sure what the issue is, Service Now Home Services can help you identify any sewer line problem.
RPZ Valves / Backflow Devices in Rockford IL
A Reduced Pressure Zone (RPZ) valve or device is a type of backflow prevention mechanism. Its purpose is to protect your water supply from contamination or pollution by preventing dirty water from reentering your personal water supply or the city’s water supply. These devices are also known as reduced pressure principle (RP), reduced pressure principle backflow prevention device, reduced pressure zone assemblies (RPZA), or a reduced pressure principle assembly (RPPA). The plumbing professionals at Service Now Home Services provide a full range of services to fix, maintain, or install the right RPZ valve for your commercial or residential property.
Commercial Property Applications
RPZ valves are common on commercial properties including apartment buildings and condominiums because they provide a higher level of protection against pollutants and toxins then single-family homes. They are necessary for homes or buildings with irrigation systems, fire suppression systems, or a large boiler system. For irrigation systems, contaminants in fertilizer and pesticides sprayed on lawns can be an issue. For buildings with a boiler or fire suppression system, water gets trapped in these systems and can result in bacteria and mineral buildup within the piping system. Backflow devices like RPZ valves are meant to prevent back siphonage and back pressure of contaminated water back into the potable water supply, especially when a potential health hazard exists like in the case of sewage water.
Residential Property Applications
However, RPZ valves are usable for any type of plumbing or water system that needs backflow prevention, not just irrigation or large-scale systems. The following circumstances would require a need for a backflow prevention device:
- Water leak in the house
- House water service break
- City water mainline service break
- Hydrant flushing
- Hydrant usage due to a nearby fire
When any of these situations happen, the water pressure in the house can drop lower than the water pressure throughout the system. Then, water from the systems can back up into the drinking water supply. The next time you or possibly your neighbor turns on the faucet for a drink of water, that water could now potentially contain contaminants. Even minor fluctuations from the city’s water supply can create an uneven pattern of water use from one neighborhood to the next, resulting in a drop of pressure big enough to cause backflow and therefore contaminated water.
A residential RPZ valve or other backflow device presents these problems from occurring. Only a licensed plumber in the state of Illinois can test and properly inspect your RPZ valve and ensure it is in working order. You’re supposed to have your RPZ valves checked once a year. With a wide variety of sizes, price ranges, and product features available, the plumbing experts at Service Now Home Services can help you fix, maintain, or install any RPZ valve for you—whether it’s residential or commercial.

Plumbing Leaks—Identify and Repair in Rockford IL
How do you know if you have a plumbing leak? Service Now Home Services can find and fix minor drips and leaks before they cause major water damage to your home or business. We offer 24/7 emergency plumbing services, so please contact us ASAP if you know you have a leak problem!
Water leak detection includes finding hidden leaks, underground leaks, sub-surface leaks, and under slab leaks that will result in water damage. Whether it’s from an underground leaking pipe, a swimming pool or an irrigation system, we’ll find it and fix it. Especially if you begin noticing an increasing water bill, it’s possible you’ve got a plumbing leak somewhere!
Let’s go over some common water leaks that can eventually cause rot or other types of expensive damages. Most often, these leaks are found in and around drains, sinks, toilets, bathtubs, and showers.
Drain leaks can occur anywhere where plumbing is present and there is a drain where water flows away from the fixture.
Shower and tub drain leaks happen when water pools around the outside of a drain with a broken seal. If the seal breaks from the drain to the material the tub is made out of, a leak will occur. This is most common with plastic or fiberglass tubs that tend to flex when you stand on them. These types of leaks can stain or erode the ceiling below or rot the floor joists. If the tub is set onto concrete, the leak can ruin the flooring in the bathroom or connected rooms. Check for water stains on the ceiling or joists below as well as loose or damp flooring near the tub.
Sink drain leaks in kitchens and bathrooms often happen at the slip joints in the drainpipe. These leaks can damage the flooring, cabinets, and even the ceiling if they get far enough. If you notice puddles, water stains, or a dank and musty odor nearby the cabinet, check to see if there’s a leak coming from the drainpipe. Loose or otherwise damaged flooring near the front of the sink is another sign to look out for.
Tub and Shower Leaks
These types of leaks generally come in 2 categories: splash leaks and tile leaks.
Splash leaks are simply water getting past the shower curtain or door. While this may seem like a minor issue, over time they can cause damage to the subfloor. If you see curling vinyl flooring or loose tiles next to the tub, this is a sure sign of water damage. That includes peeling paint, flaking wood finish, water stains, and mold spots. It’s important to take this type of leak seriously because it can cause major damage to your flooring over time, resulting in an expensive tear out and restoration project.
Tile leaks are when water seeps through eroded grout or caulk and infiltrates the wall behind the tile. Depending on the strength of the material used to set the tile, it may lead to tiles falling off the wall, rotting of the wall framing, and damage to the subfloor, joists, and ceiling below (if on the second story). Warning signs include loose tiles, persistent mold, peeling paint, or stains on the ceiling underneath where the shower is located.
Toilet flange leaks allow water to creep out after every flush, wrecking the flooring, rotting the subfloor and joists, and damaging the ceiling below. These types of leaks happen where the toilet meets the waste pipe. Check for water seeping out around the base of the toilet, loose or damaged flooring, water stains, as well as a toilet that rocks slightly when you push against it. That movement means that the wax seal between the toilet and the closet flange is compromised.
Other types of sink leaks besides drain leaks include sink rim leaks and supply leaks.
Sink rim leaks are fairly common and appear as pooling water around the sink rim and faucet base. This will destroy your cabinetry and countertops over time if neglected! If you see puddles, dampness or water stains inside the cabinets, then you have a problem. Loose plastic laminate near the sink, a loose faucet base, or eroded caulking around the sink could all be potential causes.
Sink supply leaks underneath the kitchen or bathroom sink may not be as noticeable as other types of leaks since they’re out of sight. Water running down the pipes and onto the floor or subfloor will rot the sink base, floor, and framing. Puddles, dampness, and water stains inside the cabinet are all signs of trouble. If you see these, you’ll need to call a plumber right away.
Whenever you suspect a leak, call the plumbing experts at Service Now Home Services. We can identify and solve plumbing leaks for both residential and commercial properties. We also solve other types of leaks besides those outlined above! These are just the most common types of leaks that we see. We can also help you with broken and leaking sewer pipes, underground pipes, swimming pool plumbing, and irrigation system plumbing. Contact us today.
Sump Pumps: Installation, Maintenance, & Repairs in Rockford IL
Sump pumps are designed to remove water from basements and crawlspaces. The pump itself is submersible and sits at the bottom of a sump pit (generally the lowest point of your basement or crawl space). When groundwater surrounding your home’s foundation begins to rise to certain levels, your perimeter drain system will redirect the water towards this sump pit. Then, your sump pump, triggered by what’s called a float switch, will begin pumping the water to the nearest storm drain, dry well, or retention pond. Water inside the sump pump must reach a certain predetermined level before it begins pumping it back out.
When not working properly or when simply broken, a sump pump can flood your foundation, basement, or garage. It is crucial that your sump pump is in working order to prevent water damage! Our professional plumbers at Service Now Home Services can install or repair a sump pump for you.
Sump Pump Installation Services
Most newer homes are already equipped with a sump pump, but older homes may need one to be retrofitted in order to prevent flooding. Our team at Service Now Home Services can install the right model sump pump for your home and ensure it works properly. Depending on the system, a sump pump can be hard-wired into your home electrical system, or it can simply be plugged into an outlet. Most modern sump pumps have a backup battery installed to that it will continue working even when the power is out (in the event of a severe storm, when you definitely need your sump pump to work!)
We can install a wide variety of sump pumps for your home. Whether you’ve experienced extensive power outages, or your primary sump pump fails, our team can recommend the right sump pump for you to protect your basement or crawl spaces from water damage. You may want to consider a water powered backup system that uses your home’s water supply pressure to remove water from the sump pit.
Sump Pump Replacement or Repair Services
If you already know that your sump pump is broken or possibly may need to be replaced, you’ve come to the right place. There is no general rule for when a sump pump may need to be replaced, but they do get old over time. If you know your sump pump is no longer working, contact us right away so we can troubleshoot the problem and either repair or replace it for you. We will be able to assess the situation and help with any basement leak repairs that may need to be taken care of. Remember, we offer 24/7 emergency plumbing services! So if you need a sump pump repair or replacement job ASAP, we can absolutely help you!
Sump Pump Maintenance
As a homeowner or property manager, you’ll want to test your sump pump before heavy storms and in regular intervals throughout the year to make sure it works when the next big downpour happens. You can test your sump pump by pouring a large bucket of water into the sump pit, turning the sump pump on, and observing the pump removing the water from the pit and then shut itself off in a matter of moments. You should also make sure the float and the check valve move freely.
Cleaning your sump pump regularly is also important. You should remove all dirt, sand, gravel or other debris that gets caught in it to improve its efficiency and lengthen the life of the equipment. The discharge line should always be free of possible obstructions. If you don’t feel comfortable doing this yourself, please give us a call. We’re happy to help!

Water Heater Installation Services in Rockford IL
Whether it’s a new home that needs a water heater or an old one where you’d like to update the plumbing and get a newer model to replace the old water heater, our professional team of plumbing experts in Rockford IL can get the job done right. Service Now Home Services has been installing hot water heaters in our local community for decades, and there’s a reason we’re still around. We guarantee a proper and professional installation experience and will answer any of your questions and concerns along the way.
We are able to install and service all major types of water heaters including electric, gas, and tankless (instantaneous).
Electric Water Heaters
An electric water heater holds and heats water in an insulated cylinder, ready for use. They can deliver the whole amount stored for immediate use and provide hot water at mains pressure, servicing many outlets simultaneously. Once it is completely emptied, it will take some time to refill and reheat the water. Electric water heaters reheat water quickly, though! Especially those with more powerful systems or twin elements. Some can also be run on lower cost off-peak electricity. Many electric water heaters can be installed either indoors or outdoors and are available in small through large sizes. They can be small enough to fit under a kitchen bench while heating a lot of water in a short amount of time—perfect for apartments! Some restrictions apply. If you’d like to know more about electric water heater options, please contact us and we’d be happy to go over options with you.
Gas Water Heaters
Gas storage water heaters also hold and heat a certain quantity of water in an insulated cylinder and deliver at mains pressure. They can service several showers at once. Once emptied, they will need some time to refill and reheat to gain hot water again.
If you’re interested in having continuously hot water on demand, you may want to consider a Continuous Flow Gas Water Heater. As long as water keeps flowing, hot water "never runs out" for these types of gas water heaters. These types of water heaters are ideal when there are not a large number of water demands all at once. It is better for these water heaters to have continuous demand instead of split demand (for example, having people shower one after the other rather than at the same time). Continuous flow gas water heaters are compact and can come in a variety of sizes and capacities to fit small and large homes. These types of water heaters need a gas supply.
Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters are also known as demand-type or instantaneous water heaters. These types of water heaters only produce hot water when needed and don’t produce the usual energy losses associated with storage water heaters that use standby energy. This saves you money and is a more energy efficient system.
Typically, a tankless water heater will provide hot water at a rate of 2 – 5 gallons per minute. Gas-fired tankless water heaters can produce higher flow rates than electric ones. If you have a large household with a high demand for hot water (including simultaneous uses, such as running the dishwasher and showering at the same time), you may want to consider installing two tankless water heaters. One can route to appliances while the other routes to personal use in parallel. Tankless water heaters are often used as boosters for appliances or for a solar water heating system. They are also often used for remote bathrooms or hot tubs.
When you need a hot water heater installed, you can count on Service Now Home Services. If you’d like to learn more about the different water heater options you have, please contact us.

Consider Water Efficiency
Our expert plumbers can recommend efficient bathroom appliances that will save you money later down the line. Not only is it better for the environment, but it will also reduce costs for your water bill. We make suggestions that work with your vision and maintain their efficiency for years to come.

Sewage Backup Repair in Rockford IL
Experiencing a sewage backup in your home or at your workplace can be frustrating as well as hazardous to your health. When sewer pipes become plugged with grease, debris, or even foreign objects, those sewers can then back up into your home or business through the drain pipes, sinks, toilets, or shower drains. If you need help diagnosing and repairing a sewer problem, Service Now Home Services can help. Generally, sewage backups are usually the result of one of three things.
Just like an individual appliance, a main sewer line can become clogged. This will cause sewage backups. If just one toilet or sink seems to be the problem, it is possible that there is just a clog in that particular drain. However, if every flush results in a sewage backup, you likely have a blockage in your main sewer line. Most clogs in your main sewer line can be prevented. Consider these tips for preventing clogs:
- Do not throw debris in the toilet. Anything other than toilet paper should be disposed of in the trash.
- Be nice to your garbage disposal. Avoid dumping large quantities of anything down the garbage disposal. Anything too large that gets through can become lodged.
- NEVER pour grease down a drain. Once grease cools, it solidifies. So grease and fat harden inside your plumbing, collecting debris or other particulates as they pass by. This creates an incredibly stubborn clog over time.
If you seem to have a clog you just can’t figure out, call Service Now Home Services. Our plumbing experts can resolve any clog, no matter how stubborn.
2. Tree Roots
Another common cause of sewage backups is the infiltration of tree roots around your main sewer line. Even if you don’t have trees in your own personal front yard, a tree root from a neighboring yard could also cause you problems. Tree roots grow into your pipes, causing holes and blockages. They can even wrap around your sewer line, crushing it. If you suspect this is happening, give us a call and we can come take a look at the situation. Our technicians are licensed and certified professionals that can help you diagnose your sewage backup problem. And if you end up needing a full main sewer line repair, we can do that, too.
3. Broken or Collapsed
Sometimes main sewer lines break or collapse over time. Especially if you live in an older home, it is possible your sewer lines are made with cast iron or clay piping that breaks down over time. Newer homes use plastic piping that is much more reliable and resilient.
Proper Diagnostics and Solutions
Service Now Home Services offers full plumbing diagnostic services as well as timely and affordable solutions. When your home suffers from a sewage backup, we’re the plumbing team you can trust. We’re a locally owned and operated full-service plumbing and sewer company that can resolve any plumbing problem—large or small.
