Plumbing Resolution for 2017

Plumbing Resolution for the New Year


A new year and a new year resolution. Why not make one of them to be more proactive about your home plumbing system.

Faucets- Take a walk around your home and check all the faucets in your bathrooms, laundry room and kitchen to make sure they do not leak or drip. Look under the counter and see if there are any wet spots or drips on the piping.

Sinks – Check that all your sinks are draining well. If you’re dealing with a slow drain, try using a snake to clear the blockage.

Washing Machine- Remember to check your washing machine supply lines (tubes that connect to your washing machine to the water supply) and see if there are any kinks, cracks or weakness in the supply tube.

Water Heater – A leaking water heater will cause havoc in your home if left unattended. Elements in the water when heated over a long period of time can cause corrosion in the tank and lead to rust, leaks, and damage to your flooring. Inspect your water heater on a regular basis to check on the structure and see if any rust or leaks appear.

Garburator– This year consider not using your garburator as much. Place the food waste in your compost/ green bin instead of putting it down the kitchen sink and potentially causing a sink clog. Using your garburator less often will help you use less water and electricity.

If you do have a clogged drain or line, you can always contact us at 604-283-2383 to schedule a plumber to take care of it for you.
