Plumbing Richmond

Richmond is located on Lulu Island, at the mouth of the Fraser River in British Columbia. It comprises a massive section of the Greater Vancouver area, and houses the Vancouver International Airport (YVR). Made up of eight separate locales, Richmond’s geography is as diverse as it is grand and we are happy to serve it all. The eight areas which make up this incredible town are: East Richmond, West Richmond, Thompson, Hamilton, Steveston, Sea Island, South Arm and City Centre. Neighbouring cities of Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster and Delta contribute to the hustle and bustle of Richmond’s city centre and our ongoing dedication to providing the greatest service out there ensures that a lot of locals are happy clients of Tap-Roots and Point Grey plumbing and heating services.   Home to the largest immigrant population in Canada, Richmond boasts a broad array of eateries, distinct shopping districts, and is also home to myriad spiritual centres, including the Thrangu Monastery, the first Tibetan Buddhist Monastery in the Pacific Northwest.

24/7 Plumbing

We always do our best to maintain all your plumbing Richmond BC, as well as plumbing and heating systems all around the Greater Vancouver area, and every now and then we get a call to a catastrophe. If your address happens to be the next epicentre of chaos, please don’t hesitate to call our expert plumbers and we will be there as fast as we can to address the issue and put a close to your Pandora’s Box of disaster.   We are aware that a full-blown emergency can get everyone’s heart rate up, but there are a couple of things for you to try to keep in mind and to act quickly on, just in case. If a main water line has burst and you are experiencing flooding, the first order of business is to shut off the water to your house, unit or business. Knowing where these shut-off valves are in advance can save much grief when it’s down to the wire. Speaking of wires, if you believe your electrical system is vulnerable to water damage from such a state of affairs, or if you believe it has been compromised, the safe thing to do is to shut the power off as well. Though it is never pretty, you can well imagine the added emergencies a blending of electricity and water can create. Fires and electrocutions are common, though we all wish they weren’t, and can oftentimes be avoided by following a set of safety procedures like these.   When you use our emergency plumber phone number, a super plumber will be at your door quickly to service your calamity, whatever the type or extent. Knowing a bit about what has happened will assist us in being prepared to meet your needs effectively, so having some basic idea of what the problem is when you call can only expedite a successful repair.  

Plumbing and Heating Richmond

Tap-Roots Plumbing & Heating Ltd. plumbing installations is proud to be your Furnace Maintenance Richmond provider. We have been installing and servicing plumbing and heating systems all over the lower mainland for years and are proud to keep Richmond running. We offer all your heating and furnace services from installation to maintenance and repair. We are fully insured and bonded and we guarantee all of our work.   There are a few things you can do to ensure your systems are running safely and efficiently, and that you experience appliances functioning at peak functionality. It pays to have one of our furnace experts take a look annually, just to ensure everything is tight and functioning correctly. Aside from this, checking and cleaning or changing your filters correctly insures against clogs and keeps your air clean and flowing smoothly. Another action you can take to ensure that, when you need your systems running, they are, is to run your heating systems for a couple hours every now and then in the warmer seasons. Many households and businesses turn their furnaces off in the warmer months. This can cause moving parts to seize-up and stop working the way they are supposed to. Removing the fan from its housing and giving it a good cleaning can also increase efficiency and keep that air moving when you need it to be.   It is also important to check your gauges and thermostat. If your thermostat is acting funny, it may be because of pressure buildup in your system. Usually, this is a radiator issue and all it takes is a simple air-bleed to get things back on track. These things may all sound like a bunch of tricky business, but it is easier than you think and we are happy to take the time necessary to show you how to monitor your systems so you can rest just a little easier in the knowledge that, though we are always here when you need us, you may not need us as often as you might think.   We service all plumbing and heating systems, and are available 24/7 for all your plumbing and heating maintenance, repair and emergencies. At Tap-roots Plumbing & Heating Ltd., we are dedicated to keeping all of Richmond safe and sound, with fresh, running water, and always cozy when it matters. If you think you are due for a checkup, don’t hesitate to give us a call to set up an appointment. Let us know what you think you need a hand with, if you would like to learn about how you can keep your systems running effectively and we will take the extra time necessary so we don’t leave before you are satisfied.  

Plumbers in Richmond BC

Your plumber in Richmond wants you to stay safe and to enjoy your home heating and plumbing systems without the need for a plumber phone number close at hand. Over time and through our experience, we have recognized a few simple home or office plumbing and heating maintenance tricks which anyone can employ.  We offer these in an attempt to ensure not only that your systems are running as efficiently as possible, but that when there is an issue forming, you have a better chance of catching it before it becomes an all-out emergency.   Keeping our 24/7 emergency number on hand for when an emergency does strike is one more thing you can do to ensure you get the speediest service possible. Ensuring no one in your home or office flushes anything but toilet paper and pours no coffee grounds or oils down the drain are ways you can increase the longevity of your systems and avoid clogs which inevitably lead to problems and generally, those problems are further down the line. Remaining on top of these points could keep you from having to rip up an entire out-flow system or septic field, just to find a clog.   Another rule of maintenance is to never ignore a dripping faucet or pipe. If you notice a spot forming on your ceiling, chances are that a pipe dripping from above has been at it for a while. Sometimes water can affect structural damage, such as weakening concrete, generating cracks in a foundation. Sometimes the moisture caused by the smallest of leaks can interact with other organic matter and produce molds, some of which can be infectious and deadly.   Your Point Grey Plumbing & Heating Ltd. plumbing maintenance department has your back, no matter what. Any time you think you might have an issue, don’t hesitate to call our plumbing supply store for 24/7 expert plumbing services.
