New Westminster homeowners often find themselves with a leaky pipe or a clogged drain that just won’t go away. So when it happens to you, call for help from RepairCare!
Plumbing Services in New Westminster include:
Damaged pipes, worn out hardware or a shoddy connection all cause leaks, leaving your home significantly damaged if not dealt with immediately.
The most common types of leaks include:
Drain line corrosion resulting in blockages, tree roots, improper disposal of grease products, heavy rainfall, and flooding can all cause sewage to flow backwards, out of New Westminster city sewer lines, into homes through drain pipes.
Unblocking sewer lines is not a simple process. A common mistake is when homeowners attempt to fix the blockage themselves using cheap chemical draining liquids, but this can damage the pipes, leading to a bigger disaster at home.
Only trust a licensed plumber to remove the blockage from your pipes and sewer line. Trying to do it yourself can cause more damage, which will cost you more in the end. If you’ve got a backed up sewer, call RepairCare for help!

Here are some common clogging issues:
Hair Clogs: Long and thick hair is often the culprit of clogged shower drains. You can tell when your shower drain is clogged if the water is taking much longer to drain than normal, or if while showering you notice water pooling instead of draining quickly . Getting rid of hair clogs can be simple, but it should be taken care of quickly as the clog can damage the pipes and result in a leak, which can be much harder, and expensive, to fix.
Garbage Clogs: Garbage disposals often clog as a result of homeowners throwing any number of things in them. Don’t put Grease, oil, bones, twist ties, paper, napkins, etc, down the garbage disposal. These can damage your drains as they turn into sludge and cause clogs, resulting in the need for a repair.
Toilet Clogs: Human waste and a reasonable amount of toilet paper are the only things that can be flushed down the toilet. Paper towels, napkins, and feminine hygiene products shouldn’t be flushed down the toilet. Toilet plumbing can’t handle these items, and flushing them will often result in clogs.
Homeowners in New Westminster should also watch out for leaky fixtures, like faucets and shower heads as a simple leak can turn into a nightmare pipe failure. If you see water pooling up around your drains and not flowing through or draining quickly like it’s supposed to, you know the drains are clogged. RepairCare can send a qualified and licensed plumber to inspect and fix any clogged drains.
