Do You Need A Plumber In Edmonton – Try This

Fixing Leaky Faucets And Other Minor Plumbing Issues Yourself.

While it’s the source of life, water is the enemy of a homeowner facing plumbing problems. There is not much else short of catastrophe that is going to cause as much damage to a home as plumbing issues. Plumbing education and preparation makes homeowners more prepared to deal with them.

Loud Pipes?

Obnoxiously loud pipes that like to squeal and hammer are easy situations to correct. Anchoring exposed pipes will decrease the amount of noise your plumbing system makes. If the pipes are in the walls, floors or ceiling, you may want to call a professional to come and help complete the project.

Frozen Pipes In Edmonton or St. Albert Area

If you discover a frozen water pipe, turn on a nearby faucet so that thawed ice has a place to go. By doing this, the pipe pressure is relieved, and this should stop it from bursting, which would prevent further home damage.

Keep Your Septic Tank Clean

To maintain a clean, well-functioning septic tank, it is recommended that you clean it out once every five years. This keeps the sediment from building in the tank, which can cause septic tank failure or backup into your house. If the cost of pumping your septic tank seems a bit steep, remember that the cost of cleanup and repair of a failed septic system will be much higher.

Avoid Using Tablets or Odor Removers

You need to avoid using any kind of tablet or odor remover in your toilet if at all possible. These products may well remove odors, but they have the side effect of damaging the rubber in your toilet, which can prevent your toilet from functioning correctly.

Keep Your Overflow Holes Clean

Ensure that the overflow holes in your sinks are not clogged. Overflow holes are used in case the sink starts to overfill, which may not seem like a big problem–until it is. Periodically clear out the overflow holes when doing your other checks for things that may need repaired.

Ways To Reduce Your Utility Bill

You can drastically reduce your utility bills in Edmonton and St. Albert area with the installation of shower heads designed for better efficiency. Most of the hot water we use is in the shower. When you install energy-efficient heads in each bathroom, you will save around 100 dollars or more per shower.

How To Avoid Plumbing Issues

You can avoid plumbing issues if you know what to do and have the tools at hand to work with. Even just learning the basics will go a long way to prevent costly and damaging mistakes. Indeed, those who proactively understand plumbing issues are far more likely to be able to solve a problem as soon as it occurs.

    Just wanted to say thanks to Brad R and the guys who handled our plumbing needs for a major renovation. These guys were so great to work with; very flexible as we had some shift in the timeline! As well, they worked with us to ensure that we had everything we needed (dishwasher, shut off valves, fridge line, humidifier install) so was great to know that everything is set up correctly.
    … and they liked my dog !! 🙂
    Is nice when service companies and their staff ‘care’ about your convenience and your home.
    I will use OneHour in future for sure.
    thx C
