While most residents love Albuquerque’s dry weather, their plumbing doesn’t. Hot, dry weather accelerates the aging process of pipes. Homes in older neighborhoods, including Barelas and Martineztown, are more likely to develop plumbing issues that require special expertise. We created a list of the top local plumbers to help protect your home.

Albuquerque plumbing FAQ

What should I do if my water heater is leaking?
If possible, turn off your water using the shut-off valve. Call a licensed plumber who can inspect for leaks and safely repair or replace the water heater.
Why does my faucet water look cloudy?
Cloudy water is likely caused by air bubbles in the water, especially if the water returns to clear after running for a minute or so. Your pipes might be under pressure. A plumber can help determine if this could lead to more severe issues, including burst pipes.
Why is there a sewage smell in my home?
This unpleasant smell is a more common occurrence in older Albuquerque homes. It's often caused by backed-up drains and cracked pipes. An experienced plumber can discover the source of the odor and eliminate it.
Why is my toilet leaking at the base?
There are a few possibilities. First, your bolts may be loose on the base. Another possible issue is that the wax seal may need to be replaced. Do not caulk the base to fix the problem — while this can stop the leaking by trapping the water, it doesn’t fix the root cause and can lead to mold and other serious issues. When in doubt, call a plumber.
Are 24/7 plumbing services available in Albuquerque?
Yes, there are many plumbers in Albuquerque that offer emergency services, including the following companies:
  • Roto-Rooter
  • TLC Plumbing & Utility
  • Sunshine Plumbing and Heating
