A modern building, whether it's a house or a commercial property, is a complex machine with many moving parts, and that means there are many things that can go wrong—but the very worst is a malfunctioning plumbing system.

From annoying problems like leaky faucets and slow-moving drains to total nightmares such as sewer backups and broken lines, every homeowner has to cope with plumbing issues sooner or later. However, most people don't have the time, tools, and knowledge to deal with those issues.

Water Heater Repair

There are some places in the world where most homes don't even need or have water heaters, but Canada is definitely not one of them. Our heaters are one of the hardest working features in our homes, and with good reason—everyone loves the modern convenience of getting steaming hot water with just a twist of the tap.

That's why it's so aggravating when our hot water heaters don't work properly, or don't work at all. Signs that you need water heater repair include:

  • The tank doesn't seem to hold as much liquid as it used to
  • The heater takes a long time to heat
  • The tank is leaking
  • You hear strange noises coming from the tank
  • There's grit and sediment in your hot water, but not in the cold water

There's a number of reasons why these issues might occur, but the number one reason is that, like everything else, water heaters don't last forever. They need to be replaced every 11 to 20 years based on the type of water heater, the hardness of your water, and other factors.

When it's time to replace your hot water heater, consider which option will work best for your home and lifestyle. The three types of heaters are:

  • Conventional: a large tank full of water is continuously heated
  • Tankless: water is not stored, but rather heated only on demand when it's needed
  • Hybrid: combines tank storage with a heat pump

Depending on which type you choose, a new heater can reduce your energy bill by anywhere from seven to 60 percent, saving you a huge sum of money over time.

Trenchless Line Replacement

It's very fortunate to have clean drinking water available whenever you need it, right in your home. But, if your lines fall into disrepair, the liquid coming out of your taps isn't as clean as you think it is and can even jeopardize the health of your family.

Signs that there's a disruption in your water line include:

  • Water is discoloured or has an odour
  • Low pressure in multiple fixtures throughout your home
  • Dirt and sediment in the water
  • Water pooling on your lawn

If you suspect your lines are damaged and need replacing, but you're dreading the expensive, time-consuming nightmare of having your yard and landscaping ripped apart by a huge trench, stop worrying! Mr. Rooter uses trenchless water line replacement techniques that, as the name would suggest, eliminate the need to dig ugly trenches to access the pipes.

Instead, we usually only need to dig two small holes that are easily filled in and disguised. Trenchless methods save a huge amount of money and time—in fact, we are often able to complete a pipe replacement in a single day.
