No Job is too big or too small

At A-1 Sewer & Septic Service Inc., we are dedicated to providing high-quality, fast, and efficient plumbing services to our customers all across the KC metro. When you work with a plumber from A-1 Sewer you know you have an expert who can tackle most common plumbing problems in the first visit to having the expertise to handle bigger problems that some other local plumbers are not able to do for Kansas City homeowners.

The most common causes of plumbing issues are things such as a clog from build-up in your drains, a leaky faucet, a running toilet from a failing flapper, or hot water heater repair and replacements. We also see low water pressure situations, garbage disposals, leaking kitchen sinks, and many other common plumbing system issues that cannot be handled with a simple plunger and elbow grease!

Dripping faucets, poor water flow, or leaking pipes due to corrosion can all lead to higher water bills and offsets the high energy efficiency products you use in your home to not only conserve natural resources but have lower utility bills every month.

Having the know-how to address these common plumbing issues helps to avoid bigger problems down the road by being able to fix it right and get the job done the first time. When drains are clogging and your sewer line is backing up with sewage in your basement drain or in your bathtub and shower it can be unsettling and cause for slight panic. You have a professional plumber you can call day or night and request emergency service for your home or business.

We have been serving the residents of Kansas City, MO; Kansas City, KS; and Johnson County since 1968, and we put our experience to work to resolve plumbing problems, whether big or small.
