Drain Cleaning Services: How Our Plumbers Can Help

Although there are plenty of do-it-yourself (DIY) drain cleaning services that can help you keep your drains in shape, sometimes you will face a problem that requires the assistance of a professional plumber. Take a look below at the benefits of hiring one of our contractors.

Clogged Drains

Fixing your drains using DIY methods is great for simple clogs or when you just need to tide the health of your plumbing system over until a professional arrives.  But for bad clogs, these kinds of solutions will only result in a temporary fix. Sewer drain cleaning is a necessary procedure to fix serious clogs and prevent them from returning in the future and our professionals can ensure that our services will keep your drains in peak shape well into the future.

Slow Drains

If you notice the drainage system in your toilet is running slow, it’s a sign of underlying problems. Although it could stem from a clogged drain, it could also be a problem with the drainage pipes or main sewer line. Slow drainage can lead to sewer odors spreading throughout your home so if you notice any signs, make sure to call a professional as soon as possible.

Plumbing Fixtures and Pipes

Sewer build-up can lead to overflowing and other serious problems, making clean plumbing fixtures and pipes a top priority. This is especially important for basements, as they are the most susceptible areas to flooding.

Drain cleaning is an important procedure and skimping on maintenance can lead to numerous other problems. For Vancouver, Maple Ridgeor Coquitlam residents that require a reliable plumber to conduct comprehensive drain cleaning services, give us a call at 1-604-479-2232 and our staff at JJ’s Plumbing will be happy to help you.

A Guide to Efficient Plumbing Fixtures

Have You Updated To More Efficient Plumbing Fixtures Yet?

There is very little downside when it comes to having high efficiency plumbing fixtures installed in your home. These fixtures not only save you money on your water bill after a short period of time, they also have proven to be extremely effective when it comes to saving water in the community. Low flow fixtures are certainly not a new product to arrive on the market, but recent improvements to the technology has resulted in the development of Ultra Low Flow fixtures, which provide the same performance as a regular fixture while at the same time conserving even more water than their predecessors. If you are in the market for a new toilet, shower or faucet fixtures, be sure to check out some high efficiency products.

Low Flow Toilets

For the average Canadian, a toilet makes up about 1/3rd of our daily water usage. With that in mind, changing your toilet to a high efficiency model is a good way to start lowering your water consumption. If your toilet is over 20 years old, you will definitely want to replace it, as a toilet from before 1994 is extremely inefficient and wasteful. The best option to replace you toilet is what’s called a dual flush toilet. This type of toilet is by far the most efficient as it gives you the option to flush a smaller amount of water for liquid waste, as opposed to the full tank each time.

Ultra Low Flow Showerheads

An ultra-low flow showerhead from today saves up to 18 times more water than an older model without compromising water pressure. Most ultra-low flow showerheads use only about 8 litres of water per minute, as opposed to other showerheads on the market today such as the “rain showerheads” that use up to 40 litres of water per minute. In addition to saving you money on water, the more efficient showerhead will reduce the amount of hot water you end up using, which in turn saves money on your electric bill.

High Efficiency Faucets

The high efficiency faucets of today can reduce the amount of water used in your house by up to 70 percent. Before you run out and buy a whole new set of fixtures, you may want to consider simply adding an aerator on to your faucet. For a fraction of the cost of new fixtures, an easy to install aerator can also reduce your water consumption significantly. Many municipalities also offer rebates for installing aerators in your home.

Water is a precious commodity that we often take for granted in this part of the world. Saving water in your home today will not only help you reduce your water and electrical bill, but will also go a long way towards preserving clean water for future generations around the world.
