If you’ve got questions or concerns about your plumbing, then your first and best resource is going to be a Calgary plumber – particularly if you can’t solve the problem yourself. But there’s a lot of information out there that you might need to know. So, your local Calgary plumber has brought together the answers to a couple of the most commonly asked plumbing questions.
Why do my drains clog frequently?
If you’re experiencing frequent drain clogs, then chances are that there’s a blockage in your drains that isn’t being fully cleared by any of your efforts. If that’s the case, then you’re going to need to call in your local Calgary plumber to fix the issue at its core.
A blockage can be caused by any number of things, depending on where the drain is located in your house. One of the ways that you can help to keep blockages from forming is by fitting your drains with drain catchers, which will collect any large pieces of dirt and debris and keep them from going down your drain. You can also look into professional drain cleaning on, at least, an annual basis to maintain the health and functionality of your drainage system.
Why is my toilet constantly running?
Often, there are three main causes for a constantly running toilet, those being: a dirty or broken flapper, a chain that’s too short or too long between the flush lever and flapper, or an out-of-position float. These are relatively easy-to-fix problems, although they can also be a sign of a deeper problem that requires a Calgary plumber.
Why do my drains have a foul odour?
Over time, bacteria, biological, and/or organic debris can build up within your drains. With time, they begin to decay, which brings about that foul drain odour. To fix it, you’re going to need to call a Calgary plumber to clean out your drainage pipes. There are chemical options for clearing out your drains that are available at your local hardware store, but these can be potentially harmful to your plumbing system and its lifespan.
Why has my water bill increased?
A drastic or sudden increase in your water bill can indicate a couple of things. A constantly running toilet can cause your water bill to increase, but the most common and likely cause is that there’s a leak somewhere in your plumbing system. If that’s the case, look around your home to see if you can spot it and call in a local Calgary plumber to come in and fix the issue before the damage (and cost) becomes astronomical.
