Chicago Plumbing Repair

Trust Our Licensed Plumbers to Fix Your Problem Fast

Clogged drain? Mysterious leak? Water heater problem? Sump pump not up to snuff? The expert plumbers at Althoff can diagnose and fix your plumbing problem, satisfaction guaranteed.



24/7 Emergency Plumbers in Chicago and the Northwest Suburbs

Problems with your plumbing, such as leaks or clogs, can’t always wait. If your plumbing acts up in the middle of the night or there’s water where there shouldn’t be, we offer 24/7/365 emergency service. We have two Chicago area locations to provide fast service and get your home life back to normal ASAP.

Plumbing Repair Process

Use this form or call (815) 455-7000 to request a plumbing repair. One of our friendly Customer Service Reps will work with you to schedule a convenient time for your service call. We offer a 2 hour time window for our customers in the suburbs and a 3 hour time window in the City.

You’re busy; you shouldn’t have to wait at home all day for the plumber to arrive. Our dispatchers will call you when our plumber is actually on his or her way to your house.

We’ll diagnose the immediate problem but also examine the system to determine if there are any underlying issues or potential hazards. For example, if there is a recurring leak or clog, it’s best to find out the underlying cause so it doesn’t keep happening. It may be more cost effective in the long term to fix the main problem rather than needing repeated service calls.

Once the diagnosis is complete, our plumber will prepare a prioritized list of recommendations and pricing. He or she will explain all recommendations so you know exactly what the problem is, how much it’s going to cost, and what your options are. We never perform any repairs without getting your approval first.

 In most cases, your plumber can get the part needed from our fully stocked trucks or a nearby warehouse. We understand that a plumbing problem can disrupt your home life, so our goal is to get your plumbing fixed the same day.

 Once complete, our plumber will walk you through the work performed and explain any recommendations moving forward. You’ll receive a detailed service ticket describing work performed and associated billing.

Your opinion means everything to us. Our goal is to provide the best plumbing service in Chicago, and your feedback is priceless in helping us do that.

Chicago Plumbing Maintenance

Regular Maintenance Helps Prevent Life-Disrupting Problems & High Water Bills

Very often, people don’t think about their home’s plumbing until the sink is clogged, the water heater is stone cold and leaking, or the toilet is overflowing—usually at the worst possible moment! Or, they may notice the water bill creeping up every month, without knowing that slow leaks in the plumbing system are to blame.

Regular maintenance goes a long way in helping prevent life-disrupting plumbing problems and high water bills. Call in the expert plumbers from Althoff to inspect and maintain the plumbing in your home.

For water heaters, we offer annual tune-ups for both tankless and traditional tank style units. See our Water Heater Service page for more details.

In addition, we offer preventative sewer line rodding and camera inspections. Camera inspections can identify obstructions to the lines, such as tree roots.



Chicago Plumbing Installation

Some plumbing installations, like new fixtures and faucets, are relatively simple—but maybe you don’t have the time or desire to DIY. Complex installations, like water heaters and appliances, involve electricity and/or gas and are safer when handled by professionals.

Our expert plumbers are ready to take on any plumbing installation project, big or small:

  • Sinks & Vanities
  • Faucets & Fixtures
  • Bathtubs & Showers
  • Toilets
  • Water Heaters
  • Sump & Ejector Pumps

Are you interested in saving on utility bills by upgrading to more efficient appliances? Our expert plumbers can recommend and install the appliance that’s a perfect fit for your home and usage.
