What are the types of plumbing services?

Mister Plumber is well-equipped to handle any plumbing needs that Toronto homeowners may have. That can include water heater repair, sewer repair, clogged drain repair, pipe repair, faucet repair, and more.

What does it mean when my basement toilet or shower “bubbles”?

It means that the main drain or sewer is blocked. In older houses, there might not be this sign of backup because sewage is gradually overflowing into the weeping tiles.

How do you fix a leaky faucet?

First, it is important to find out the brand and model number. Second, find a store that supplies parts for these particular brands and models. Also, check on the Internet whether the manufacturer of the faucet provides a lifetime warranty on cartridges.

What brand of toilet or faucet should I buy?

Mister Plumber recommends that you use brands with stock replacement parts. No lifetime warranty can prevent you from having to change your cartridges because water contains chlorine, calcium, magnesium and other minerals that cause natural corrosion and buildup.

What should I do if my toilet is constantly running?

If your toilet is constantly running, it’s wasting both water and money. The first thing you’ll want to do is check to see if the handle is loose. If it is, simply tighten it up and see if that solves the problem. If the handle feels tight, then it may be a problem with the lift chain or flapper. Both of these can be easily adjusted or replaced.

If you’re not comfortable making these adjustments or replacements yourself, Mister Plumber would be happy to take care of it for you.

What are the warning signs that I may need plumbing repairs?

There are several warning signs that you may need plumbing repairs. Some of the most common include:

  • Higher water bills: If you’ve noticed that your water bills have been steadily increasing, it could be due to a leak in your plumbing.
  • Water pressure drop: You’ve noticed that your water pressure has decreased, it’s possible that there is a blockage somewhere in your pipes.
  • Stains & damp areas on ceilings and walls: These could be signs of a roof or pipe leak, so don’t just wipe the water away and forget about it.
  • Extra green patches of grass: If you’ve noticed extra green patches of grass in your yard, it could be due to a leak in your sprinkler system or a leak in a sewer line.

If you’re experiencing any of these problems, it’s best to call Mister Plumber for an inspection. We’ll be able to quickly identify the problem and get it fixed before it causes any serious damage.
