C and K Plumbing Specialties

Our licensed and insured plumbers can install, retrofit, repair, remodel, and maintain most anything to do with plumbing. We have been serving the Ames area with excellence in plumbing, as well as heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), since our very first day and continue to make customer satisfaction a top priority.

When it comes to plumbing services, our expert plumbers can help with most anything in your Iowa home. Our team is comfortable with everything from serious plumbing issues to small plumbing tasks—just ask us.

If you are experiencing a plumbing issue or need a plumbing service not listed here, be sure to call us. We can probably help with that as well.

Below are only some of the services we offer.

Water Heaters

There are many options on the market today for water heaters. A few of the factors to take into consideration are the type of water heater—tank or tankless, energy-efficiency ratings, and size.

Getting all these components correct for your lifestyle needs and budget takes a professional hand. The same goes for your water heater repairs and maintenance. Let us help.

Water Softeners

If your Ames home has hard water, more than likely you could benefit from a water softener. Having hard water contributes to mineral buildup inside anything that uses water—like your pipes, water heater, toilets, faucets, and small appliances.

This buildup, commonly composed of minerals like calcium and magnesium, can cause damage in several ways. A water softener can help combat this issue for you.

Water Filtration

It is so important to filter the water you drink today, whether it’s the water coming from your kitchen faucet or your refrigerator. Water filtration helps remove unwanted and damaging particles and pollutants from water.

Depending on your Iowa home’s water makeup and what your unique requirements may be, our experienced plumbers can help you select the best water filter for your specific needs and expectations. Get in touch with us to discuss how we can help.

Whole-House Water Filters

There are different types of whole-house water filters designed to target and remove various contaminants from all the water in your home. Contingent on the type and model, whole-house filters are most commonly installed where your water enters your home, working to filter sediment, chemicals, contaminants, and different-sized particles from your water.

At C and K, we offer and work with numerous filter types. Let us help you find the right one for you.

Fixture Upgrades

Whether you want to replace that old toilet upstairs or you are remodeling an entire bathroom, our expert plumbers can assist you in choosing the most appropriate plumbing fixture(s) for your project. Through all our years of serving the Ames area, there is not too much we haven’t seen or done.

We stay on top of the newest technology and techniques in plumbing, so we are equally adept at working with brand new fixtures or those original to your house. Let our team help you upgrade to the right fixture.

Toilet Clogs

Having an obstruction in your toilet can ruin your entire day. Our licensed plumbers can help clear that inconvenient clog in no time. When a simple plunger won’t resolve the problem, give us a call.

Many times it boils down to experience and using the right tools. We have professional plumbing hand tools that can do the trick, or if that’s simply not sufficient, we have heavy-duty cabling equipment to reach as far down as we need to take care of the problem.

Drain Cleaning

When your water is backing up into your kitchen sink, your shower drain, and your laundry room drain simultaneously, you need our help. Or if it’s something more subtle like several slow drains—or more obvious like sewage backup—our professionals can promptly come out and resolve it for you.

These scenarios are usually indicative of a main drain obstruction and require a plumber’s intervention. Call us immediately.

Plumbing Repairs

The majority of needed plumbing repairs tend to be unexpected. When your toilet won’t flush or your laundry tub overflows creating a flood, you need a professional plumber you trust to diagnose and repair the issue quickly. Our reliable plumbers are here in Ames to take care of any plumbing repair you may have. We service all makes and models at C and K.

Plumbing repairs are something you need to deal with immediately, as water can cause extensive and unhealthy conditions quickly. It can cause damage to most materials and can build a collection of spore-bearing mold and mildew very rapidly. Unfortunately, the longer you wait, the worse your water issue becomes.

When you have an emergency plumbing repair, our licensed plumbers are available to you, no matter the time of day. We offer 24/7 emergency service for your peace of mind. Call us when you need us.

Plumbing Maintenance

To ensure the longest life possible for any part of your Iowa plumbing, it’s essential to perform regular preventative maintenance on it. Being sure your pipes and plumbing fixtures are in working order isn’t all that different from regular oil changes for your car.

Keeping all parts clean and checking for wear and tear goes a long way in extending a life span. Some you can do on your own, but much of it requires a professional’s expertise. Preventative maintenance goes a long way in saving you money over the long term.

At C and K, we recommend participating in our preventative maintenance agreement plan—Maintenance Membership. We have options for every budget and need. Talk to us about the included discounts, priority scheduling, and much more when you sign up.
