South Carolina homes are built to withstand extreme weather, like the rain that comes in the wake of a hurricane, but what about the path water takes inside? Most of our West Columbia homes were built between 1940 and 1969, and nearly a third of our properties were constructed between 1970 and 1999. This means much of our city’s residential plumbing is aging.
Meetze Plumbing has been serving West Columbia, SC, since 1981. We serviced your parents’ plumbing, and we’ll be here for your kids’ homes, too. What’s important is: We’ll be here when you need us.

Leak Detection & Repair
Leak detection can cost between $250 and $2,500 or more. We may use hydrostatic water testing equipment, infrared cameras, or even smoke testing to find the problem. 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 from a leak.
- Stains – Water leak stains on your ceiling, in corners, or on flooring indicate a hidden leak.
- Water meter running – Turn off all the water in your house, then check your water meter. If it’s running, you may have a leak.
Water Heater Repair
If your water heater is 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 smell.
Drain Cleaning & Repair
Drain and sewer clogs are something every West Columbia property owner experiences eventually. Many are due to aging plumbing systems; most of our Lexington County properties are over 40 years old.
Types of clogs include:
- Multiple fixtures – dishwasher drains into the sink; toilet drains into the shower, etc.
- Toilet overflows/sewer backups
- Drain vent cleaning
- Rain leader drains
- Root infiltration cleaning
- Sewer line replacement
- Video camera inspections
Water Treatment Services
Hard water isn’t dangerous. It’s simply water with high mineral content. Your expensive appliances will deteriorate rapidly from hard-water buildup; your hair and skin will suffer too.
For most West Columbia residents, clean air and water aren’t merely options; they’re necessities. You’ll likely want water filtration for purer drinking water, but you need a hard-water solution.
Water filtration and softening are affordable and worth the expense: they will protect your plumbing, save your appliances, and increase property value. That’s a great ROI (return on investment)!
