We are new to the Plymouth area and had a sewer back up in our house we had only owned 1 week. We called and were told someone would be there in the afternoon. Then we were called and told around noon. Then we were called and told someone would be there in a half hour. Thanks so much for rushing someone over to remedy our issue. Great communication!!!

When I hear Plymouth Plumbing and Heating, I think Family! They are always there for you and have your back when you need them. I was doing a remodel and lets just say it was bigger than a bread box....and Plymouth Plumbing and Heating was there every step of the way! Jamey was the mastermind in the trenches getting things done, but the whole team was there supporting me. When there was a "bump" in the remodel I could call or text and knew it would be handled. Never had to worry when will it get done. Boom Done!I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Plymouth Plumbing and Heating for ALL your plumbing needs!

Jack and the team at PPH have done a wonderful job on our apartment building heating issue. We had another water heating company out here who could not solve the problem. PPH figured it out and fixed it within 2 hours. Thank you PPH!

We live near Lake Michigan in an older home without a basement and for many years we have experienced problems of water accumulating in the crawlspace area under our main floor. We’ve asked several contractors and plumbers in our area to assess the situation, but none of them have offered any viable solutions. I decided to widen my search for answers and was drawn to the Plymouth Plumbing website. I called them and was able to set up an appointment a couple of days later for a free estimate. About 30 minutes before the plumber was due to arrive, I received a call from his office letting me know that he was running about 45 minutes late. The receptionist asked if I would be willing to wait or prefer to reschedule. I suggested 4 pm that afternoon and he arrived right on time. Jack Dellger is the third generation owner of a family business and has had a lot of experience with these water-related issues. He listened carefully to my questions, checked out the crawlspace, and then walked around the perimeter of the house pointing out where and how water could seep under the house when it rains. He gave me several suggestions about how to change the slope of the land so rain water would drain away from the house; where to seal up the wide cracks between our cement front stoop and the base of the adjacent siding; how to improve on the existing gutters, and where we needed to add additional ones. When I asked him for some recommendations of whom he trusted to do those jobs, he not only provided me with names, but offered to call them for me and see how soon they would be available to come and give us an estimate for the necessary improvements. Although he declined my offer to pay him for his consultation, he said that the next time we had any plumbing problems, he hoped we would give him a call. I enjoyed meeting Jack and appreciated the way he clearly explained everything. We will definitely contact Plymouth Plumbing and Heating for any plumbing issues that we may encounter in the future.

Updated Review: we got the bill and it was about $200 more than we were anticipating. I get that it was a weekend, but almost $600 to clean a main drain? Not happy about that! I wonder how much of that includes the 20 minutes the plumber spent messing around with the auger that was put away wrong from the last service, his words, while he was cursing the last person who used it, under his breath, 🙄Original review: We experienced an unexpected plumbing issue arise during the 4th of July weekend. We called Plymouth Plumbing and Heating, as well as about 10 other companies, on a Sunday of a holiday weekend. They WERE THE ONLY ONE to call us back and send a plumber out! Not all websites that say "24/7 emergency calls" actually mean it, because no one else was able to send a guy out on a Sunday.Thank you for your prompt response. We will call you again and would recommend you to others for a prompt and efficent experience.

Can You Help Me With Sump Pump Troubleshooting?

When your sump pump ceases to operate, or operate correctly, there are some common problems.

Overwhelmed pump - If your sump pump isn't the right size, it can become overwhelmed with the volume of water it is being expected to handle. This can leave you with a flooded basement and plenty of water damage. There are even times when one pump is not enough for the volume of water.

Burned out pump - Your sump pump can burn out because of a faulty float switch or an overworked or underpowered pump. Inferior pumps are prone to failure when under a sustained load from frequent flooding.

Loss of power - Your sump pump could lose power from tripping a tripped circuit breaker, accidentally being unplugged, or a power outage. No sump pump can operate without electrical power to the motor. Inferior pumps can also overheat and melt interior wiring, causing a loss of power.

Pump intake becomes clogged - When the water intake becomes clogged, this prevents the free flow of water from the pit or surrounding area. Running a clogged pump will burn out the motor quickly. Clear any clogs quickly, then restart the motor.


Clogged or frozen discharge line - The discharge pipe carries the excess water your sump pump removes from the basement to a location outside your home. If it becomes clogged with debris, water cannot flow and the pump becomes bogged down. If a flood occurs in winter, the outside discharge line can become frozen and blocked.

Do I Need a Battery Backup Sump Pump?

A battery backup sump pump can provide added protection for flooding in the event of a power outage. Common sump pumps require an electrical connection to function, and are therefore inoperative during a power emergency.

Battery backup sump pumps are protection for power outages or for when the primary electric pump fails for any reason. When the primary pump fails or power is lost, the battery backup pump will switch on to continue removing excess water.
