St. Albert Plumbers For Residential Maintenance
You spend more time in your home than anywhere else, so naturally, your St. Albert residence is going to be affected by wear and tear over time. An aging pipe or plumbing fixture is a common culprit for creating challenges; therefore, routine maintenance will best protect your water and sewer lines from potential failures. Besides natural occurrences like tree roots or soil shifting, there is a list of preventative maintenance that homeowners can consider with the assistance of their certified St. Albert plumbers.
Drain Cleaning Services
Your sewer line and household waste lines are responsible for removing wastewater from your home, but over time, those lines collect mineral deposits and other debris that will eventually create stubborn blockages. When you experience slow drains, foul odours, and frequent backups, you will know something is lurking deeper down the drains.
You might scrub your sink openings with vinegar and baking soda paste or clear your P-trap, but you can only go so far down that drain with a snake or auger.
Untreated drain clogs will compromise your pipes’ functions and lead to major complications, such as sewer backups and other damage.
Routine drain cleaning services are crucial for plumbing maintenance. Household plungers and drain snakes will only provide temporary relief for your pipes. Our cleaning solutions include the advanced HydroScrub® Jetting device—a high-pressure water system that blasts away deep-sitting blockages, leaving no trace behind.
What Causes Clogged Drains in St. Albert?
Are you experiencing slow draining in your tub or sink? Clogged drains aren’t just a nuisance—they could escalate into bigger problems and affect other fixtures sharing the same drain line. When clogs return, it’s likely that there is an underlying issue in your drain system.
The most common culprits for clogged drain lines include:
- Soap residue
- Wet wipes
- Paper towels
- Tooth floss
- Kitchen grease
Severe underlying issues often involve:
- Cracked or burst pipes
- Tree root intrusion
When you hire a St. Albert plumber for a routine drain cleaning service, they will always inspect your pipes’ condition to ensure they are in healthy condition for years to come. However, if they are in bad shape, it may be necessary to complete repairs or replacement before or after the cleaning.
St. Albert Plumbing | Repair Services
You may not always think about how many fixtures you rely on during your daily routine—until one of them fails. Kitchen plumbing issues are pretty common, from inoperable garburators to clogged sinks or dishwasher drains. Before anything gets worse, you should call your local plumber. St. Albert homeowners will get peace of mind knowing that we are equipped for dependable inspections, repairs and parts replacements. We guarantee to get it done right the first time.
This is a vast realm that would normally require one to write a book about, from leaky pipe joints to slab leaks and burst pipes. Minor issues involve clearing your pipes from clogs, whereas major issues like a sewer line collapse require trenchless repair methods.
Your home is built on a concrete slab underneath which you have plumbing lines and electrical wiring installed during construction. Slab leaks are a type of plumbing leak that occur primarily during soil shifting or home settling when the corners of your foundation are settling into place. While that’s a natural occurrence and your house is designed to settle, it can still happen that your lines get damaged during the process. By hiring your certified St. Albert plumbers, you will know whether you’d received a poor installation service from your construction company or if the situation is natural. Pay attention to hot spots on your flooring or pooling water in the basement.
Uninsulated pipes located against basement walls, in your garage or other areas can freeze and burst. Suppose you’re experiencing low water pressure in the winter, do not force it; instead, check if you have a frozen pipe in an unheated area. Perhaps you didn’t drain and insulate your hose bib and the remaining water froze and expanded. This will highly affect your other supply lines. If you have no means to help you thaw the frozen pipes, contact your local plumber. St. Albert homeowners who have hair dryers or space heaters can use these methods in the meantime. To protect your pipes, we will provide you with our winter pipe protection tools that include insulation wraps and discuss further preventative measures.
Metal pipes in old homes are susceptible to corrosion. Unfortunately, those older lines will only deteriorate further, making replacement inevitable. Cast iron pipes, once extremely effective and efficient, are porous and prone to clogs if you don’t regularly maintain them. Your St. Albert plumber does not recommend using corrosive chemical drain cleaners as that would accelerate the deterioration process.
Water Heater Repair
Were you startled by cold water in the shower one morning? There are many reasons why that might happen. If your pilot light ever goes out, it could be because of a faulty, old thermocouple that shut off the gas supply. Tanks also collect lots of sediment over time that must be cleaned out and flushed. Other problems include the unit being too small to provide adequate hot water for your home, or just too old to continue working efficiently. Drain valves corrode over time and clog. When they leak, your floor could suffer from water damage.
Hot water heaters require regular maintenance services to remain efficient as they age. This is a job best left to your local plumber. St. Albert homeowners who rely on a licensed plumber for routine maintenance will always have the support they need to keep their water heater working, and know when it might be time to upgrade to a newer unit to better manage their hot water reserves.
