Learn When to Call Your Edmonton Local Plumbers

Do you know your trusted Edmonton local plumbers? Whether you're a homeowner, a business owner, or just a resident, those experts are some of the most important people to know. Every property needs plumbing maintenance, repairs and replacements eventually, so it's important that you already know who to call when you need those services—and that you know when to call them.

Sometimes, the signs that you need Edmonton local plumbers are obvious. If your hot water tank starts leaking, for example, that's a good indication that you need a plumbing expert. However, not all the signs are so clear, and you might not even know that a plumber is the right person to call for some situations.

Local Edmonton plumbers provide a wide range of services for a large variety of situations. A residential plumbing emergency definitely calls for an appointment with your local plumbers, but there are many more signs and situations where a team like the experts at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Edmonton can help. If you know when to call your local plumbing company, you'll never have to worry about the complications of plumbing issues in your home or business.

Signs that You Need Edmonton Local Plumbers

Plumbing signs generally come in two categories, immediate emergency signs and early warning signs. Emergency issues are more obvious. Most people in Edmonton are usually able to see the signs of a plumbing emergency and call their local plumbers right away. However, there are some signs that you might not realize are an emergency, so it's important to ensure you know all the signs that you need immediate emergency service from your local plumbers.

Not every plumbing concern is a potential plumbing disaster, and early warning signs are generally less threatening than emergency signs. However, that doesn't mean it's safe to ignore them completely. Even a small problem with your bathroom plumbing will escalate into a major disaster if it's not fixed, and those small problems could also be a sign of something more serious deeper inside your plumbing system.

If you wait too long before calling Edmonton local plumbers, you could be increasing your chances of experiencing severe complications such as widespread moisture damage. As soon as you see the signs, be sure to call your local plumbers for prompt Edmonton plumbing repairs.

Emergency Plumbing Warning Signs:

  • Sewage backups coming from your toilet or floor drains

  • Multiple clogs in drains across your home

  • Multiple slow drains across your home

  • Flushing your toilet causes a sewage backup somewhere else

  • Sudden changes in water pressure

  • Drips and moisture stains coming from your walls or ceiling

  • Foundation cracks

  • Flooding and backups from floor and basement drains

  • Visible leaks

  • Frozen pipes

Common Early Warning Signs:

  • Drain clogs that keep coming back

  • Higher water bills with no clear cause

  • Unpleasant odours coming from your drains

  • Slow drainage in your sinks or floor drains

  • Flies appearing near drains and sinks

  • Gurgling toilets and other strange sounds coming from drains, fixtures or plumbing equipment, such as a sump pump or water heater

Do You Really Need to Call Edmonton Local Plumbers for Frozen Pipes?

When it comes to fixing frozen pipes, the best solution is often simply to wait, so many people wonder if they actually need to call a plumbing company. Even though waiting is often the best solution for ice in your lines, there are still a few important reasons why that frozen pipe should prompt a call to your local plumbers.

Edmonton homes that often suffer from frozen pipes may need extra insulation to better protect their plumbing lines from cold weather, which is a problem that a professional plumber can help with. But that's not the most important reason that you should call local plumbers for frozen pipes in Edmonton.

When pipes freeze, the water inside them expands and puts pressure on their walls. That pressure often causes cracks, bursts and water leaks. However, those problems don't immediately appear because the water is still frozen. It's only when your pipes begin thawing, and you think that your problem is solved, that you realize the actual problems have only just begun. By calling your Edmonton local plumbers as soon as you know that your pipes are frozen, you can get an inspection and services to repair or replace those burst pipes before they start spraying water everywhere.

Which Services are Available from Edmonton Local Plumbers?

You might be surprised to learn just how many services and solutions are available from your Edmonton local plumbers. Professional companies offer a wide range of plumbing services for both residential properties and commercial properties. A team like Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Edmonton can meet all your needs, and provide solutions for your property that you might not even have known about.

Routine Drain Cleaning and Maintenance Service

Of course, fixing pipes and fixtures is a common reason to call your local plumbers in Edmonton, but don't forget about getting routine maintenance and drain cleaning either. Many serious problems with plumbing systems are preventable. With standard maintenance and regular appointments for Edmonton drain cleaning service, you'll never have to worry about a sudden catastrophe affecting your home or business.

Regular drain cleaning keeps your pipes clean and safe, ensuring that you don't suffer from the effects of severe blockages. Routine maintenance ensures that all your plumbing systems are always working perfectly, from your kitchen taps to your water heater.

You also can't overestimate the value of having a routine checkup from local plumbers . Many homes in Edmonton with older pipes and fixtures are more vulnerable to problems like leaks. By getting routine maintenance services, you're giving your local plumbers a chance to inspect your home's plumbing and use their trained, professional eye to spot problems that might otherwise have gone undetected.

Clearing Severely Clogged Drains

Struggling to clear a badly clogged drain is not something that anybody wants to do, but it's something you can always get help with from local plumbers in Edmonton. Clearing bad blockages can be a tough task, especially when you don't have the specialized tools, extensive training and industry experience of a skilled local plumber. With professional tools and techniques, your local plumbers will clear any clog. At Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Edmonton, we have a wide variety of specialized tools for clearing drains and waste lines, including our HyrdoScrub® jetting equipment.

HydroScrub® Jetting

Have you ever seen a pressure washer in action? Hydro jetting equipment is similar to that, except for your pipes. It works by shooting jets of pressurized water that propel it through your waste lines while clearing away all the grime and debris stuck inside. The results it provides are far superior to those of older methods used for deep sewer cleaning, and it's much more efficient too.

Plumbing Replacements and Installations

Are you curious if you can handle your own water heater or sump pump installation? That's a job best left to local plumbers in Edmonton. Installation can be tricky, especially for complicated equipment like a sump or water heater. Even a toilet needs to be installed according to correct procedures in order to avoid accidental water damage.

You may be able to swap out your faucets yourself, but anyone with crossed connections will tell you that even that kind of simpler plumbing installation has plenty of room for error. The fixtures and equipment that control your waste and water are complex. Improper installation could lead to many problems, some of which are quite serious. By getting reliable service from local plumbers in Edmonton, you'll sleep easy knowing that the fixtures in your home have been installed correctly by licensed plumbers.

When it comes to choosing a team for installation, it's important to ensure that you choose a company that you know provides great service. Some homeowners and business owners try to cut corners when looking for something like affordable water heater installation, but you should be cautious when looking for an affordable plumber in Edmonton.

There are some so-called professionals who provide sub-par service for lower prices, which often results in the same complications that occur with improper amateur installation. For many homeowners and business owners, it isn't until after those complications occur that they learn why it's best not to hire cheap plumbers in Edmonton.

Our Local Licensed Professionals Install and Replace:

  • Toilets

  • Taps and faucets

  • Boilers

  • Water heaters

  • Garburators

  • Hot water dispensers

  • Shower heads

  • Floor drains

  • Commercial-grade fixtures

  • And much more!

Plumbing Repairs from Edmonton Local Plumbers

Along with clearing clogged sinks, drains and toilets, repairs are some of the most common services provided by Edmonton local plumbers. Anything you use everyday will eventually wear down and break, even if you only use it once per day—and most plumbing fixtures are used far more often than that. There are many potential ways that fixtures and pipes could break, and your local plumbers are ready to provide repair services for all those situations.

Leaky Toilet Repair

Toilets commonly leak because of three potential issues. The first is a worn seal between your toilet and the floor of your bathroom, which is also often indicated by your toilet rocking. The second is a worn flapper in your toilet tank, which will cause the tank to leak constantly into the bowl. The third is a crack in your toilet, which is also the most serious.

It's possible to repair a worn seal or flapper, but a cracked toilet will likely need to be replaced. Although each of those three leaky toilet issues varies in the severity of the causes, they all require prompt repairs from local reliable plumbers. Leaks are never something that you should let get out of control, which is why local teams like ours are always happy to help fix them.

Leaky Faucet Repair

Fixing a leaky faucet is one of the simpler plumbing jobs often handled by Edmonton local plumbers, but that simple fix has major benefits for anyone with dripping taps. That constant drip can be a major source of frustration, not just because of the sound, but also because of the cost you'll have to pay for that wasted water. Luckily, help for this sort of plumbing issue is always available from local experts.

Water Heater Repair

Surviving in Edmonton just isn't possible without hot water, especially during winter, but that equipment isn't designed to last forever. There is a wide array of potential problems that affect both conventional and tankless water heaters, and there is an equally extensive range of solutions available for all those problems. Whether your hot water is discoloured, your valves are leaking or you're experiencing some other kind of issue with your hot water tank, your local plumbers are here to help!

Burst Pipe Repair

Whether a burst affects your water supply lines or your main sewer line, it's important to get that problem fixed quickly, before it has a chance to cause more problems. A local licensed plumbing expert is the best professional to call for any kind of pipe damage. Whether you have a cracked pipe inside your home or you suspect you may have a slab leak underneath your foundation, that local experienced plumber will be able to provide the diagnostic and repair services you need.

Gas Line Repairs

Did you know that many Edmonton local plumbers don't just work with waste and water systems? They also work with natural gas lines. If you have natural gas lines in your home, such as one that supplies fuel for a gas furnace, you can call your local plumbers for repairs and replacement. A company like Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Edmonton will provide the same services you'd expect to receive from a specialized gas fitter.

Other Fixtures Your Edmonton Local Plumbers Can Repair Include:

  • Clogged drains

  • Garburators

  • Sump pumps

  • Backflow valves

  • Commercial grease traps

  • Hot water dispensers

  • Boilers

  • And more!
