Nearly half of our Irmo, SC homes were built between 1980 and 1989, and over 28% of our properties were constructed between 1970-1979. This means our plumbing is aging, and regular maintenance is important.
Meetze Plumbing has been serving Irmo since 1981. We were here for your parents, and we’ll be here for your kids so you can depend on us for quality work. We care because we live here, too. installation/repairs

Leak Detection & Repair
Leak detection can cost between $250 and $2,500 or more. To find the problem, we may use hydrostatic water testing equipment, infrared cameras, or even smoke testing. We may need to get behind walls and under your house.
Signs you may have a leak include:
- High water bills – If your water bills are going up for no reason, it could be leak-related.
- Mold – If you see mold in an unusual area, it may indicate a behind-the-wall leak.
- Pooling water – Water pooled near an appliance or your water heater is almost certainly from a leak.
- Stains – Water leak stains on your ceiling, in corners, or on flooring indicate a hidden leak.
- Water meter running when no water in use – Turn off all the water in your house, then check your water meter. If it is running, you may have a leak.
Water Heater Repair
If your water heater is over 10 years old, you should consider water heater replacement, not repair. Also, if you’ve repaired it twice in one year, replacing it might be more cost-effective.
Signs you need water heater repair include:
- Brown/rusty water – Sediment buildup can discolor water.
- Noises – Clanging or popping noises indicate a problem.
- Not enough hot water – It could be the heating thermostat or element.
- Odors – If your water heater has been idle, bacteria can grow and emit an unpleasant odor.
Drain Cleaning & Drain Repair
Drain and sewer clogs are something every Irmo property owner experiences eventually. Many are due to aging plumbing systems.
Types of clogs include:
- Single-fixture clog: Typically, this means an object or substance is blocking the drain.
- Multiple-fixture clog: If your toilet and shower back up at the same time, for example, there’s likely a blockage in one of your home’s main drain lines.
- Drain vent cleaning
- Rain leader drains
- Root infiltration cleaning
- Sewer line replacement
- Video camera inspections
Water Treatment Services
For most Irmo residents, clean air and water are not merely options; they’re necessities. You will want to explore water filtration for purer drinking water, but you should also consider a hard-water solution for your South Carolina property.
Hard water isn’t dangerous; it’s simply a high mineral content that can cause problems. Your expensive appliances will deteriorate rapidly from hard-water buildup. Your hair and skin will suffer too.
Water filtration and softening systems are affordable and well worth the expense: they will protect your plumbing, save your appliances, and increase property value. That’s a great ROI (return on investment)!
