Our drain cleaning technicians are clog solvers, and we work quickly. Not all local plumbers offer drain cleaning services, and many drain cleaning companies are not licensed plumbing companies. Blue Planet plumbers are fully licensed plumbing technicians. We know the piping infrastructure because we’ve installed thousands of drainage systems. We provide firm plumbing repair quotes to unblock your clogged drain and get drain service restored to your home as soon as possible.
We offer sewer jetting services on drain lines up to 4 inches. Sewer jetting is often more effective than drain cleaning with mechanical cutterheads and it is much, much safer and more environmentally friendly than chemical drain cleaning agents.
Drain cleaning agents usually include sulfuric acid or a combination of other caustic chemicals that are harmful to groundwater and the fumes and vapors are very dangerous to human health. Additionally, these drain cleaning agents will destroy your metallic drain lines if not properly used.
The following shows photos of pipes we uncovered that had corroded completely due to drain cleaning agents.
The correct way to clear a clog is to call a licensed plumbing professional with experience in drain cleaning.
Water leaks damage more property than any other type of plumbing issue. Get help fast! Blue Planet Plumbing plumbers are well versed in handling any water leaks you may have — major or minor.

No one wants to wake up on a cold winter morning to find your pipes frozen. Blue Planet Plumbing can come to your aid. Better yet, prevent frozen pipes from occurring by scheduling an assessment in advance of colder months, so we can ensure that your pipes are well insulated from the frost before the cold weather arrives.
Fixtures and Emergency Shut-off Valves
We replace hundreds of fixtures a year. Before giving you firm plumbing repair quotes, experienced service technicians help you make the best decision on replacing or repairing your existing plumbing fixture.
Often, fixtures have a lifetime warranty and can be repaired easily. Other times, the repair cost of the fixture exceeds the cost of replacing it. If you have a dripping faucet or need a fixture repair or replacement, call (828) 392-8585 today and let our expert plumbers help you make a well-informed decision when purchasing your next plumbing fixture.
When you attempt to use your emergency shut off valves, your leaking fixture keeps running. You’ll need to have local plumbers check it out. Shut-off valves can fail during their lifespan. When that happens, emergency shut off valves won’t actually stop the water flow. Often, you only notice it when you most need the emergency shut off.
The Blue Planet Plumbing professionals inspect your plumbing system to ensure all shut off valves are functioning properly. Be prepared and call today at (828) 392-8585 or fill out the above form to set up an appointment.
Home Plumbing Winterization
Every fall, the Asheville plumbers at Blue Planet Plumbing winterize dozens of homes for clients that are planning on leaving town. It’s crucial to winterize your unoccupied home during the months of freezing temperatures to protect your home from damage. As part of your winterization service, licensed plumbers will return prior to your arrival and recharge your system.
According to the Department of Insurance, failing washing machine hoses are among the top contributors to property damage in the United States. Look behind your washing machine/refrigerator to see if your hose is silver or black. If it’s a black rubber hose or a plastic supply line on the icemaker, you’d be well served by replacing it with a stainless steel braided hose. We like to be proactive.
The licensed plumbers at Blue Planet Plumbing can assist you with this change. We’ll even install the new washing machine hose for free! We also offer flood safe protection devices to monitor your home when you’re not there to ensure no leaks are happening unbeknownst to you.
We repair hundreds of toilets each year. Homeowners often call with high water bills related to leaking toilets. Ask for the service called a “toilet rebuild” to cut those costs. You don’t need to throw away a good toilet when you can just rebuild it. Sometimes, though, it’s more cost-effective to simply replace the toilet. Blue Planet Plumbing is happy to help you determine which is the right option for your home and budget.
Blue Planet Plumbing technicians provide certified backflow inspection. Our plumbers know what you need to pass all city inspections and audits.
Manufacturers require that tankless water heaters are serviced regularly in order to avoid damaging the heat exchanger, which voids the warranty. The water quality feeding your tankless water heater is extremely important and will void the warranty if it is not properly monitored and within a certain parameter of PH guidelines. We are well-versed in the area of water treatment, so we can absolutely explore the options of chlorine neutralizers upstream of tankless water heaters (and other water heaters). The frequency in which your tankless water heater should be flushed is based on your water quality, and your plumbing contractor will use that information to determine how often to flush your tank, typically every one to three years.
A proper maintenance schedule ensures you don’t overpay on utilities and also extends the lifespan of your units. If you schedule a water heater flushing, Blue Planet Plumbing will also perform additional maintenance items such as inspecting the vents, gas pressure, and checking internal components such as servo valves, flow regulators, gas valves, heat exchangers, and cassette burners.
