Clogged or Blocked Drains
When the residents of Ottawa, have a drain clog, and need drain cleaning services, they look to John The Plumber to ensure the job is carried out properly. There are many different reasons that drains will clog up. Simply unblocking a drain doesn’t give you much insight into why the drain itself is blocked. Sometimes a drain stop is an indicator of a bigger problem, such as a blocked vent stack, or a sag in the pipe.
Grease in your kitchen sink
My mother used to pour the bacon fat in a tin can, and then wipe out of the pan with a paper towel before rinsing it off in the sink. It turns out she had learned this lesson with a call to the plumber years earlier. Grease, even in small amounts will cause blocked drains over time. These are also one of the hardest types of blockages to clear.
OTTAWA BACKFLOW PREVENTION PROGRAM
About the program
The Backflow Prevention Program assures that devices are installed to prevent contaminated water from flowing back into the city’s water supply. Ensuring public safety and long-term safety of shared water resources. Many people are unaware that backflow conditions can jeopardize system water quality, posing a health risk to consumers drinking water from the system.
What is backflow?
In most cases, drinking water flows from the City’s distribution system into a property’s private water system. Backflow happens when there’s a reversal of water flow, usually due to changes in water pressure. This ‘backflow’ can cause pollutants to enter the drinking water system.
RANDOM PLUMBING TIP
The mixing valve: It’s now code for new home builds to have a mixing valve, but it’s not uncommon to find older homes in the Ottawa area that don’t have one on their hot water tank. A mixing valve makes sure that the water in your electric hot water tank or gas hot water tank always stays hot enough to prevent bacterial growth. It can also make sure that the water isn’t so hot that it will scald you when you turn on the shower. This can be extremely helpful to the elderly and younger children that may have slower reflexes.
