When you have a leaky pipe or clogged drain that just won’t go away, you need the help of a plumber fast.
Plumbing Services we offer in Barrie:
No one wants to come home to clogged drains; or find that water building up around the drains in your home is not draining as quickly as it’s supposed to. When you call RepairCare, we send a qualified and licensed plumber to inspect and fix any clogged drains in your home.
The most common types of clogs are:
Clogged Toilets: You really shouldn’t be flushing anything else down the toilet – except human waste, and a reasonable amount of toilet paper. The toilet isn’t the place for disposing of paper towels, napkins, and feminine hygiene products. Its plumbing isn’t designed to push those items through, so when flushed, the toilet will definitely clog.
Garbage Clogs: Waste items have to be disposed, but in their proper place. Items like grease, oil, bones, twist ties, paper, napkins, and cigarette buts, among others, don’t belong in garbage disposal, no matter how easier that sounds. Not only can these damage the drains, but also turn into sludge that causes clogs and need to be repaired.
Hair Clogs: We all shed hair, especially in the shower, and it goes down the drain. But what we don’t always pay attention to is how hair gets stuck there. Over time, you may notice that water takes much longer to drain, or while showering, you notice a significant amount of pooling. All these are telltale signs of a hair clog. It’s simple enough to get rid of a hair clog, but when not done ASAP it can damage the pipes and cause a leak, which can be very expensive to fix.
If you see water building up around any of the drains in your home and not flowing through or draining quickly like it’s supposed to, it is likely you have a drain clog. RepairCare can send a qualified and licensed plumber to inspect and fix any clogged drains you may be facing.
Damaged pipes, worn out hardware or a shoddy connection could all result in leaks. These can cause significant damage if not repaired immediately.
The most common types of leaks include:
While no one can control nature, there are steps that we can take to protect our homes in Barrie from the damage caused by the elements. Household waterproofing and flood protection can save you thousands of dollars over time, while protecting your home and valuables in the event of a natural disaster.
Sewer backups are the results of blockages from drain line corrosion, tree roots, improper disposal of grease products, and excess water following a heavy rainfall or flood that leads to sewage flowing out of Barrie city sewer lines and into homes through drain pipes.
You can’t unclog a sewer line yourself using cheap chemical draining liquids. These chemicals can damage the pipes which could lead to a bigger disaster in your home.
Only a certified plumber will know how to effectively remove the clog or blockage from your pipes and sewer line. Attempting a DIY repair can cause more damage, which end up costing you a lot more in the end. Save yourself the trouble; if you’ve got a backed up sewer, it’s important to call for professional help right away, so let RepairCare help!
